'Salman possessed no driving license at the time of accident'
The statement was given by an officer at Regional Transport Office (RTO) on Monday in the sessions’ court.
The witness, who is an assistant inspector at RTO, told session judge that the actor had obtained driving license only in 2004 and did not have the license when the incident took place.
The witness produced the records of the actor’s driving license before the court when he was examined by Public Prosecutor Pradeep Gharat.
On September 28, 2002, the actor’s car rammed into a bakery in suburban Bandra, killing one person and injuring four others sleeping outside.
The case, dragging on for over a decade, took a twist when a city Magistrate, after examining 17 witnesses, held that the charge of culpable homicide not amounting to murder was made out against 49-year-old actor, and referred the case to the sessions court.
The charge of culpable homicide attracts a 10-year sentence.
