The Supreme Court on Monday dismissed a petition seeking probe into whether Salman Khan and his family used money to secure the actor’s acquittal in 2002 hit and run case.
A bench led by Justice J S Khehar termed the plea as “wild allegation without any basis” and said that the main controversy regarding his acquittal is already being heard by it.
Delhi lawyer M L Sharma had urged the court to take judicial note of a statement reportedly made by Salman’s father Salim Khan that the family spent Rs 25 crore on the case.
Sharma claimed it was an extra judicial confession hinting towards money used in influencing the judiciary.But the bench said: “They have spent on lawyers’ fee. Where have they said they purchased anyone? These are wild allegations.”
