Salman Khan sentenced for five years of imprisonment

The 49 year old Bollywood superstar Salman Khan has been sentenced to five years in prison for killing a homeless man with his SUV in a 2002 hit-and-run after a night out drinking at an upmarket bar.

Indian judge DW Deshpande found that Khan is guilty of culpable homicide and other charges for driving his car into a group of homeless men sleeping in suburban Mumbai. “After going through the arguments put forth by both sides, I have come to the conclusion that five years is proper punishment,” The judge concluded.

However, Khan had been always denying that he was behind the wheel, but the conviction and sentence are likely to push down the career lie of this high profile star in the industry.
