The Bombay High Court on Wednesday said it was difficult to believe the testimony of late Ravindra Patil, the police bodyguard assigned to Bollywood actor Salman Khan who was in the vehicle during the September 28, 2002, hit-and-run accident case involving the Bollywood star.

Terming him as “an unreliable witness” Justice A.R. Joshi said it was difficult to accept Patil’s answer that the car tyre burst due to the impact” (of the crash).

The court also observed that in his police statement recorded hours after the accident that day, Patil made no mention about Salman being drunk, but said this only on October 1 (that year) after the blood sample tests reports were received.

Since Monday, the judge is in the process of dictating in an open court his verdict on the appeal filed by the actor challenging the Sessions Court order of May 2015.

By that order the Sessions Court sentenced Salman Khan to five years’ jail on, among other things, charges of “culpable homicide not amounting to murder”.

DGP Pandey tweeted in Hindi from his verified Twitter account, which translates to: “The Patna IG had written a letter to the Chief of BMC opposing the quarantining of IPS Vinay Tiwari and requested that he be released, which has been rejected. BMC has sent a reply to the letter to Patna Police. Now our SP Vinay Tiwari will be locked inside for 14 days. This decision of BMC is unfortunate!”

IPS officer Vinay Tiwari, who has been assigned with heading the probe into late actor Sushant Singh Rajput’s death case by Bihar DGP Pandey, was quarantined by the BMC soon after his arrival in Mumbai on Sunday.

“Mumbai Police is parroting Rhea Chakraborty’s stand. She is saying Bihar Police can’t investigate the case and the Mumbai Police is supporting her contention,” Pandey had told IANS on Tuesday.
