New Delhi: Bollywood superstar Salman Khan breathed a sigh of relief on December 10, 2015 after the Bombay High court acquitted him of all charges in the infamous 2002 hit-and-run case.

The latest report suggests that Maharashtra government will file appeal in Supreme Court against Salman Khan's acquittal in the case. The Bombay HC had termed lower court's verdict as erred thereby acquitting the actor of all charges.

The HC even rapped the prosecution over its failed presentation of any proof. It ruled that the prosecution had failed to prove "beyond reasonable doubt" that actor was driving the vehicle at the time of the accident and was drunk.

The judgement came on an appeal by the superstar, seven months after he was pronounced guilty by the trial court of running over five people sleeping on a pavement outside a laundry in suburban Bandra with his Toyota Land Cruiser, killing one and causing injury to four others on October 28, 2002 and sentenced him to five years in jail.
