The State government has decided not to appeal against a sessions court order granting actor Salman Khan’s request for a fresh trial in the 2002 case hit-and-run here that killed one and injured four.

The prosecution wanted to challenge the order in the Bombay High Court and therefore sought legal opinion of the Law and Judiciary Department. But the department was in agreement with the order and felt there was no discrepancy in it. “It has said it is not fit to file an appeal,” public prosecutor J.V. Kenjalkar told The Hindu on Tuesday.Regular trial in the case is scheduled for February 22.
