Public prosecutor Pradeep Gharat begins his argument as Salman Khan’s lawyer has already spoken in the actor’s defence.
Salman Khan listened to the verdict with tears in his eyes. As his lawyer started to speak about the condition of his heart, the Veer actor stopped him from talking about it.

Salman Khan has been convicted in the 2002 hit-and-run case. He has been charged under culpable homicide not amounting to murder. Here is all you wanted to know about the case.
Salman Khan has been convicted in the 2002 hit-and-run case on May 6, 2015, for running his SUV on pavement dwellers killing one and injuring four others. All the charges against the actor have been proven. The wait for the judgment day had given sleepless nights to not only the actor, but also his filmmakers and the industry people since a lot of money is riding on Salman. The actor, who has become one of the most bankable stars in the past few years, has a line up of some big releases. This year, Rs 200 crore and Rs 250 crore are riding on him (including production and marketing of Bajrangi Bhaijaan and Prem Ratan Dhan Payo). Let’s take a look at the films that will bear the brunt of the court proceedings.
Ankita Sharma: Salman was always innocent for me, and he will be always. All my prayers are with him and he will be always my Salman Khan, whatever be the results. I know injustice has happened and I wish justice happen to those innocent people, but let Salman Khan be out of it. Because I know he is not what he is projected as. I am praying for him since last night and I hope everything is fine. Salman Khan is Salman Khan, and I would not like to see him in any trouble. He is not the devil, he is the angel.

Salman Khan, who was shooting in Kashmir for his film, Bajrangi Bhaijaan, returned to the city to be present at the court for the verdict.
While Shah Rukh Khan has extended his support to Salman by visiting him, here’s another instance when the baadshah had dedicated his Award to the bhai.
