Waiter identifies Salman, says he served drinks to his group
A bar waiter on Monday identified actor Salman Khan in a court saying he had come along with his friends in a group to have drinks in a five-star hotel on the same night, hours before Khan ran over his car over people sleeping on footpath in suburban Bandra, 12 years ago.
The waiter, Molay Baug, told Judge D W Deshpande he had served cocktails and Bacardi (White Rum) to the group who had come along with Salman to ‘Zen Bar’ in J W Marriot hotel, but could not remember whether the actor had consumed drinks. Public prosecutor Jagannath Kenjralkar examined the witness to show the court that the actor had consumed drinks before meeting with an accident on the ill-fated day.
‘The lights were dim and it was dark and hence I could not see who had consumed liquor...all that I remember is that I had served drinks to this group which had come with Salman, the waiter told defence lawyer Srikant Shivade during cross-examination. To another question, the witness said it would be difficult for him to say whether everyone in the group had consumed alcoholic drinks.PTI
