A Mumbai court on Thursday exempted Bollywood superstar Salman Khan from appearing before it in connection to the hearing on a petition that accused the actor of delaying the trial in the 2002 hit-and-run case.
The Bandra Metropolitan Magistrate Court will hear the case next on Jan 30.
Khan´s sisters, Alvira and Arpita, and lawyer Dipesh Mehta on Thursday filed a petition that sought his exemption from appearing before the court.
"The summon has been served and I am waiting for the court to call me. We have been with the law and done what the law required us to do," Khan told media.
