Has Salman Khan accquitted in the hit-and-run case?

Salman Khan, a Bollywood actor, has been acquitted of all charges in a 2002 hit-and-run case. The Bombay High Court ruled that there was insufficient evidence to prove Khan's guilt. Khan had previously been found guilty and sentenced to five years in prison for causing the death of a homeless man. The court ruled that the prosecution failed to provide any evidence that Khan was driving the car or that he was drunk at the time of the accident. This ruling brings an end to a 14-year legal battle for Khan.
