Bollywood superstar Salman Khan Wednesday sought the quashing of charges of culpable homicide not amounting to murder against him in a 2002 hit-and-run case.

The sessions court, however, deferred the arguments in the case to March 8, since a magistrate had referred the case for trial.

Sessions Judge A.N. Patil told Salman Khan's lawyer Ashok Mundargi that the appeal for quashing the charges should be filed in the Bombay High Court.

A magistrate court had invoked the charge of culpable homicide not amounting to murder and shifted the trial to the sessions court last month. The charge, if proved, can attract a maximum punishment of 10 years in jail.

He was tried earlier by a magistrate under a lesser charge of causing death by negligence that provided a maximum punishment of two years in prison.

Khan had rammed into a bakery in suburban Bandra killing one person and injuring four others who were sleeping on a pavement Sep 28, 2002.

    this case has been going on since 10 yrs..as a member rightly pointed out it jus shows how effective the justice system is? this isn't jus in india bt in other countries too...sometimes I feel they spend so many yrs investigating tht evn wen justice is served it doesn't feel it is justice...

    Salman is innocent until proven guilty. That's what the justice system claims. So until then, he's free and innocent.
    The Indian justice system will do the right thing.

    This is shocking! Just because you are a star, does it mean you should be above the law?? 10 years to prove a case of culpable homicide?? I can't believe the justice system in India!

    I guess if he was not guilty, he would have been acquitted by now!! The fact that he has not been acquitted indicates there is a case to answer! He continues to live it up, while someone is dead! I like the guy as an actor, but the law should be the law for everyone! This proves how corrupt the Indian justice system is! Shocking!
