Though actor Salman Khan was acquitted by Bombay High Court in all the charges levelled against him by the prosecution in the 2002 hit-and-run case, the state government has challenged the verdict in the Supreme Court.
In response to the plea of state government against him, Salman has filed a counter-affidavit, and has denied being intoxicated, which is the central point of argument being presented by the prosecution.
Besides, Salman stated in the affidavit that the police and prosecution is trying to falsely implicate him in the case. Also, his legal counsel has claiming that there was a conspiracy to prove that Salman was drunk, in order to close the case.
“There is no proof that I had consumed alcohol,” Salman reportedly said in the affidavit, adding that the prosecution failed to prove that the blood sample it had collected was not tampered.
