Bollywood star Salman Khan faces fresh trial on homicide charge

Police say Khan drove his car into group of people sleeping on a Mumbai pavement in 2002, killing one and injuring four. Indian film star Salman Khan will face a fresh trial on a homicide charge for a fatal road accident more than 11 years ago. Police say Khan drove his car into a group of people sleeping on a Mumbai pavement in September 2002, killing one and injuring four. A Mumbai magistrates court in February charged the actor with culpable homicide not amounting to murder. Khan appealed, seeking a trial in a higher court. Judge DW Deshpande on Thursday ordered a fresh trial and said all the witnesses would be re-examined. The pre-trial is set for 23 December. Khan could face up to 10 years in prison if convicted of culpable homicide.
