Salman’s family ‘leaves rest to god’
The family of Salman Khan, who is on a two-day interim bail after being sentenced to five years in jail in the 2002 hit-and-run case, has thanked fans for supporting the superstar during his difficult time, and they have left all other proceedings to “god”.
The judgment in the high-profile case was pronounced on Wednesday, which turned out to be crucial for the family.
“Today was a day filled with ups & downs, highs & lows. We leave the rest to God & hope & pray for the best. Thank you all for being with us,” Salman’s sister Arpita tweeted late Wednesday night. Salman’s family members, including his brothers Arbaaz and Sohail and sisters Alvira and Arpita, were present at the sessions court here when the verdict was pronounced.
They were all emotional after Additional Sessions Judge D W Deshpande convicted Salman for culpable homicide not amounting to murder, driving without licence and other offences.
He was also held guilty of rash and negligent driving when he was behind the wheel of the Land Cruiser that killed one man and injured four others in suburban Bandra in September 2002.
