Salman Khan, who was freshly charged for culpable homicide not amounting to murder, in the 2002 hit-and-run case, has now moved a sessions court in Mumbai, challenging Magistrate’s order.

He was earlier being tried under section 304-A, i.e. for fast and irresponsible driving, which attracts a maximum phrase of 2 yrs however, in January this year, he was booked under 304-II (culpable homicide not amounting to murder), which attracts maximum punishment of 10 years.
