Mumbai: The trial in the hit-and-run case involving actor Salman Khan was today deferred to October 9 after the court was informed that his lawyer was unwell. The trial was to resume today after repeated adjournments over “missing” documents which have now been traced and submitted in the court. Prosecutor Pradeep Gharat informed trial judge D G Deshpande that Khan’s lawyer Srikant Shivade was not well and hence the trial may be adjourned. Accordingly, the court deferred the trial for a fortnight. The prosecution has been asked to keep witnesses ready on the next date. The actor also did not appear before the court Wednesday.
