We all have reported about Salman Khan’s trial in the case of culpable homicide against him following the 2002 hit and run case and while all eyes were on the court proceedings, one man managed to get free publicity out of the whole event.
Right outside the court, our little birdie spotted a Salman lookalike, complete with a body-hugging T-shirt and a ‘firoza’ bracelet on his wrist, giving interviews to media-persons, much to the amusement of everyone who had gathered outside the court to catch a glimpse of the Dabangg Khan.
Sources claim that the lookalike is named Najeem Khan and is a hard-core fan of our ‘Bhaijaan’. Considering Salman’s last silver screen appearance in ‘Kick’, Najeem too had sported a French beard just like his idol. Wonder what the duplicate Khan had to say about Salman’s verdict later…
The court today announced Salman Khan guilty of all the charges including culpable homicide, in the 2002 hit-and-run case and now, the quantum of punishment has also been decided. The court has sentenced him to five years in prison and the superstar will have to move the High Court to apply for bail.
Sources claim that Salman will be taken into custody soon and may be taken to the Arthur Road jail. Culpable homicide attracts imprisonment up to 10 years however, Salman Khan's lawyer pleaded the court to be lenient with him in view of his humanitarian work.
On September 28, 2002, an inebriated Khan rammed his Toyota Land Cruiser into a pavement killing one person and injuring four, outside a bakery in Bandra, Mumbai.
