Mumbai: The Bombay High Court on Monday adjourned till July 1 its hearing of the appeal of actor Salman Khan and ordered expeditious completion of case papers before the formal hearing could commence.

Khan, 49, who has been convicted and sentenced to five years’ rigorous imprisonment by the Mumbai Sessions Court in a 2002 hit-and-run and drunken-driving case, has appealed against his conviction.

Justice A R Joshi of the Bombay High Court adjourned the hearing till July 1.
During the hearing, Justice Joshi was informed by Khan's counsel Amit Desai that the“paper book” — compilation of evidence and

documents which is served to both the sides by the court — was not complete.

The actor was convicted by Additional Sessions Judge D W Deshpande of the Mumbai Sessions Court under the grave charge of culpable homicide not amounting to murder and sentenced to jail, on May 6. 

However the same evening he was granted interim bail for two days by Justice Abhay Thipsay of Bombay High Court–which later was extended and the appeal admitted for further hearings.

Last month, the court had allowed him to visit Dubai for the Indo-Arab Bollywood Awards on May 30.
