Mumbai – A Mumbai court on Thursday ordered a fresh trial of the 2002 hit-and-run case involving Bollywood actor Salman Khan.

Earlier, a court had ordered that Khan be tried for culpable homicide not amounting to murder, which attracts ten years of imprisonment. The actor had pleaded not guilty in court.

The June 24 order was a major setback for the actor, who was earlier tried by Bandra metropolitan magistrate court for a lesser charge of rash and negligent act causing death, under Section 304 A of the Indian Penal Code (IPC), which attracts two years of imprisonment.

One person was killed and four others were injured when the Land Cruiser, allegedly driven by Salman Khan, crushed a group of people sleeping on the pavement outside a bakery in suburban Bandra in the early hours on September 28, 2002.
