An Indian court on Thursday ordered a fresh trial for Bollywood star Salman Khan, who is accused of culpable homicide in a hit-and-run case dating back to 2002, reports said.
Khan, 47, is alleged to have driven his Toyota Land Cruiser vehicle onto a pavement and over five sleeping homeless people in suburban Mumbai, killing one and injuring four others.
During the decade-long court proceedings, Khan initially faced lesser charges of rash and negligent driving. But prosecutors secured a charge of culpable homicide earlier this year.
