Mumbai: The Mumbai Sessions Court on Monday adjourned the hearing of the revision application filed by Bollywood actor Salman Khan in the 2002 hit-and-run case till Apr 29.

Khan was earlier facing the trail for rash and negligent driving, which awards the convict with a maximum sentence of two years.

However, the court handling his case, in January accepted that the police have provided evidence that merits trying the actor for culpable homicide not amounting to murder, which awards the convict a punishment upto ten years in prison, said reports.

The case was then transferred to the Sessions court as the Magistrates' court did not have the jurisdiction to hear the same.

In February, Khan challenged the order and filed a revision petition, pleading that the stringent charges against him be dropped.

In 2002, the actor driving a SUV had run into a bakery in suburban Bandra, and the accident took the life of one pavement dweller while injuring four persons sleeping on the pavement outside.
