The High Court was not satisfied with the paper-book (compilation of court records) in the 2002 hit-and-run case involving the Bollywood actor.

Not satisfied with the paper-book (compilation of court records) in the 2002 hit-and-run case involving Salman Khan, the Bombay High Court on Monday directed the registry to prepare it afresh.

Last month too, the High Court ordered that the paper-book should be prepared afresh in view of some irregularities.

The court found that lot of unnecessary material such as the charge sheet and other documents which were inadmissible in court were included in the paper-book.

Alleging that the provisions of the criminal manual were flouted, Salman’s counsel Amit Desai argued that crucial material with evidentiary value was excluded from the compilation, whereas unnecessary documents were included. He said the inclusion of the charge sheet caused prejudice to the defence’s case as the charge sheet was only an opinion of the investigating agency.

Justice A.R. Joshi, hearing Salman’s appeal, said the arguments could not start till the paper-book was in place. The next hearing is slated for Friday.
