New Delhi: Salman Khan, after being convicted for five years of rigorous imprisonment, has got a two day interim bail in 2002 hit and run case, today evening.
High Court granted interim bail to Khan since judgment copy was not given in time.
Bombay High Court will hear the actor's bail plea once the copy of the judgement is handed over to the actor on Friday. Though the actor was granted bail today, the road ahead for the super star seems not steady after Friday i.e. May 8.
If the actor doesn't get bail on the day, he might have to wait for another 3 weeks.
It should be noted that Bombay High Court will be going on a 15-days vacation starting from 11 May.
During the period, a vacation bench comprising two judges takes only a few special cases.
Since the conviction has been announced in Salman Khan's case, the legal eagles say that the vacation bench may not consider it.
And if this happens, Salman Khan will have to wait for a period of around three weeks after Friday (8 May) for the further bail proceedings.
Earlier in the day, Salman Khan broke down in court after the conviction in 2002 hit-and-run case was announced by the Sessions Court.
Additional Sessions Judge D.W. Deshpande said: "You were driving the car," adding Salman was under the influence of alcohol and behind the wheels without a licence. He said all charges stood proven.
