Salman has no licence?

Mumbai, October 3
Providing a new twist to the Salman Khan driving case, the Mumbai police said today that the star probably did not have a driving licence at all although he had claimed to own one at the time of his arrest on September 28 after he allegedly rammed into a bakery shop killing one person and injuring four.

Joint Commissioner (Law and Order) Ahmad Javed said here the police had written to the RTO three days ago asking for the actor’s licence to be suspended till the completion of the high-level probe into the entire accident case.

“The RTO at Andheri, under whose jurisdiction the matter falls, has written back to inform us that they do not have any record of a person with the name of Salman holding any driving licence”, Mr Ahmad said.

“However, we have also written to various other RTOs asking them to verify whether the actor had been issued a licence from their offices. We are still awaiting their response”, he said.

“On the day of the accident, Salman had told the police that he possessed a driving licence which at that moment of time had been misplaced”, Mr Ahmad said.

Replying to a question whether the actor would be slapped with fresh charges if he was found not to be in possession of a licence, Mr Ahmad said Salman had already been booked under the provisions of the Motor Vehicle Act for not possessing a licence on the day of the mishap. “Hence the same charges would continue to apply”, he added.
