Mumbai: Salman Khan’s alleged involvement in the 2002 hit-and-run case, the defense counsel alleged that the city police tampered with the blood samples of Salman in order to establish that he was drunk, so that he could be implicated in false cases.
Salman Khan allegedly hit a bakery shop on 28th December 2002, in suburban Bandra in Mumbai by his SUV in which a person was killed and four others were injured. Salman is facing charges for ‘culpable homicide’ after 13 years of incident took place.
Salman’s lawyer Shrikant Shivde argued that the Mumbai prohibition rule states that not the police, but the doctor will decide whether or not to take a blood sample from a person’s body.
The lawyer said to session’s Judge DW Deshpande while presenting his final arguments, in this case the Shashikant Pawar of JJ Hospital stated that the police asked him to check and review the Salman’s blood sample. This shows an unholy alliance between doctor and the police.
He also questioned that why did the Bandra police took Salman into a government JJ Hospital, rather taking him to a more near and established Babha Hospital. Why did not they collect blood samples there?
Shivde said, “it might happen because there were not enough facilities to collect blood. Is it possible? Bhabha Hospital is a prestigious hospital. There is an operation theater and ICU too.”
The doctor who took the blood sample he was wearing no gloves and he did not use anticoagulant used to collect the blood in semi-solid form, which are generally used to prevent changes during the process of taking out blood from veins. Even preservative was not used, and in the absence of preservative; it is likely to have sudden or unexpected changes in the blood.
Shivde said, the document shows that the pulse rate was examined and it was 88 pulses per minute, his eyes were examined for depression, then his blood pressure found out to be 138: 88, then stomach was examined which was soft. As far as the smell is concerned, there was no smell. He was able to walk straight. Is it possible to happen in just minutes?
