The Supreme Court on Friday declined a plea to cancel the bail granted to actor Salman Khan by the Bombay High Court in the 2002 hit-and-run case.

A Bench of Justices F.M.I. Kalifulla and Amitava Roy rejected the plea of Sushila Bai Himmat Rao Patil, mother of police constable Ravindra Patil, a key witness, who died in mysterious circumstances. The petition also wanted a probe into the constable’s death.

The court had refused a similar plea by Sushila Bai Patil in August.
