Bollywood's Salman Khan jailed for 5 years in deadly hit-and-run
Khan, who blamed his driver for the crash, has been sentenced to five years in prison
Salman Khan, one of Bollywood's biggest stars, was sentenced on Wednesday to five years in prison for drunkenly killing a homeless man with his SUV in a 2002 hit-and-run, which he blamed on his driver.
Judge D.W. Deshpande convicted the 49-year-old of culpable homicide for crashing his SUV into a group of homeless men in India's entertainment capital Mumbai and then fleeing the scene, according to an Agence France-Presse journalist inside the courtroom.
Khan looked stunned as the sentence was read out, according to an AFP reporter in the court.
