NEW DELHI: The Bombay High Court on Tuesday granted permission to Bollywood heavyweight Salman Khan to travel abroad. The 49-year-old actor is currently on bail in relation to the infamous 2002 hit-and-run case.
Salman had moved the court last week seeking permission to travel to Dubai for a show later this month.
Khan was convicted by a sessions court of `culpable homicide not amounting to murder' and sentenced to five years in jail, on May 6 in the infamous 2002 hit-and-run case.
On May 8, the High Court granted him bail and suspended his sentence. It had also said that the actor would need to seek the court's permission every time he wants to travel outside the country.
One man was killed and four others were injured when Khan's Toyota Land Cruiser ran over them while they were asleep on a pavement outside a bakery in suburban Bandra on September 28, 2002.
