An Indian court has sentenced Bollywood star Salman Khan to five years in jail for killing a homeless man in a 2002 hit-and-run driving incident in Mumbai, the BBC said.

The man was among five people who were run over in the incident. The actor was charged with culpable homicide.

Khan had said his driver was behind the wheel, but the judge said the actor was driving the car and was under the influence of alcohol at the time.
Legal experts expect the actor to appeal against the verdict. He could have been jailed for 10 years.

But correspondents say the guilty verdict is a huge setback for Khan who is one of Bollywood's biggest stars, appearing in more than 80 Hindi-language films.
On Wednesday morning, as the actor drove to court with his family and friends, fans prayed for the actor's acquittal.

But Judge DW Deshpande found him guilty on the charge of culpable homicide. "You were driving the car; you were under the influence of alcohol," he told the actor as soon as the court proceedings began.

Indian television channels had reported the actor broke down inside court as the guilty verdict was announced.

    It will be worth finding out whether they have Merchants ward access in Indian prisons as well? Or do the high and mighty in India too fall ill when they are jailed?

    I am sure this too will be categorized as an act of political revenge by the yahapalanaya due to salman supporting the hitapu-Kings campaign
