Mumbai: On September 7, the Bombay High Court directed its registry to prepare a fresh paper-book - a compilation of documentary - evidence in the 2002 accident case and conviction of Bollywood superstar Salman Khan by September 11, as it was not made properly as per rules.

At a hearing before Justice A R Joshi, Salman's counsel Amit Desai said that certain documents, which were not required, have been included and pointed out other discrepancies in the paper-book that was submitted on September 7.

This was the second time after August 26 that the High Court directed the registry to file a fresh paper-book in the case in the actor's appeal, challenging his five-year sentence by a lower court.

The High Court is hearing Salman's appeal against the sessions court verdict of May 6, which found him guilty in the accident case in Bandra on September 28, 2002. One person was killed and four people were injured in the accident.

At the previous hearing, Justice Joshi had ruled that the paper-book must be prepared afresh in keeping with the High Court manual and if required, assistance could be taken from the judge who had conducted the trial.
