WHAT THE HIGH COURT SAID ON THE CASE
DRIVING UNDER INFLUENCE: The court said the prosecution had failed to prove that Khan was drunk and driving his car at the time of the accident
KAMAAL KHAN: The court questioned why the singer-actor had been withheld as a witness, saying an adverse inference must be drawn against the prosecution for not examining him
RAVINDRA PATIL: Khan’s former police bodyguard’s statement was deemed “wholly unreliable” because he told the magistrate that Khan was driving under influence while, in the FIR, he accused him only of speeding
ASHOK SINGH: Court rejected prosecution’s charge that the driver was a got-up witness; it said the sessions court too got carried away by the “perception of belated deposition”.
