Mumbai: The prosecution in the Salman Khan 2002 accident case on Thursday tied up its case by reiterating that the actor was drunk and driving the Toyota Land Cruiser which rammed into a bakery in Bandra killing one and injuring four others.

Bombay High Court Justice A. R. Joshi, who is hearing Salman’s appeal against his conviction and a five-year jail term by the sessions court awarded last May, is likely to start dictating his order soon.
Public prosecutor Sandeep Shinde asked the court to not show any leniency towards the convicted actor and uphold the sentence awarded to him in May this year by a sessions court for ramming his car into a shop in Bandra, killing one person and injuring four others. Khan was convicted for culpable homicide not amounting to murder.
