Salman Khan is in trouble again! You may ask what's new? Well, it seems the past is all set to return to haunt him. Remember the infamous hit and run in the year 2002 in the streets of Bandra, Mumbai? Let us refresh your memory a bit. On the night of Sep 28, 2002, Khan's Toyota Land Crusier, allegedly driven by him, rammed into a bakery in suburban Bandra, killing one pavement dweller sleeping outside and injuring four others.

For this crime, presently, the actor is being tried under section 304 A - causing death by negligence, which attracts maximum jail term of two years. But now, a Mumbai court yesterday directed that he should be tried for a more serious charge of culpable homicide not amounting to murder, and not death by negligence in the 2002 hit-and-run case. The provision - section 304 of the Indian Penal Code - attracts a maximum jail sentence of 10 years. The Bandra magistrate also committed the case to the sessions court for trial.

Salman has to appear before the sessions court on Feb 11, 2013. Let's see what how this year unfolds for Salman.
