Bollywood actor Salman Khan has been convicted of all 8 charges against him including culpable homicide today on May 06, 2015.


A Session Court in Mumbai said all charges including culpable homicide have been proved against him.

A Bandra Metropolitan Magistrate, who conducted the trial under lesser charge of rash and negligent driving, which carries a maximum punishment of two years, had in 2012 slapped the more serious offence of culpable homicide and committed the matter to the sessions court.

The prosecution also alleged that Khan was driving without holding a licence. To buttress its charge, the prosecution produced RTO records to show that the actor had procured a licence only in 2004, two years after the tragedy.

    It is a big blow for the actor and his stardom as two of his big budget films “Bajrangi Bhaijaan” and “Prem Ratan Dhan Payo” are yet to complete, while projects like “Sultaan”, “Dabangg”, “No Entry Mein Entry” and “Shuddhi” apart from his endorsements deals face an uncertain future.
