If actor Salman Khan wasn’t driving the car on the fateful night of September 28, 2002, why did he run away without helping the victims, the prosecution asked here on Tuesday.

It was the third day of prosecution’s final arguments in the hit-and-run case.

One person was killed and four others were injured when Khan’s car rammed into a shop in suburban Bandra in 2002.

The actor’s driver, Ashok Singh, deposed before the court recently that he was driving the car at the time of the accident.

“Why would people shout ‘Salman, come out,’ if the accused was not driving the car? The accused is a renowned actor, respected by people. Had he not been guilty, what prevented him from staying back to calm down the people, and to tell them that right action was being taken against the driver? Why didn’t he take the suffering victims to hospital,” asked special public prosecutor Pradeep Gharat.
