The Supreme Court on Monday dismissed a plea seeking a Central Bureau of Investigation(CBI) probe into the 2002 hit-and-run case on the ground that corrupt means have been adopted in securing the acquittal of actor Salman Khan in the case.

“These are all wild allegations. He must have spent Rs. 25 crore on lawyers,” a Bench led by Justices J.S. Khehar remarked when the petitioner-in-person, advocate Manohar Lal Sharma, said there were news reports quoting Salim Khan that they had to spend money to acquit his son.
