Convicted Bollywood star Salman Khan has been allowed to travel to Dubai where he is scheduled to appear at an awards show on May 29.
One of India’s most bankable stars, Khan, 49, was convicted and sentenced to five years in a 2002 hit-and-run case, in which the actor — driving under the influence — ran over and killed a homeless man and injured four others in Mumbai.
The Mumbai sessions court found him guilty of “culpable homicide not amounting to murder.” Following his May 6 conviction, Khan was immediately given bail by the high court, with instructions to deposit his passport with authorities and seek permission for overseas travel. Khan’s case is set for another hearing in July.
Last week, Khan’s lawyers filed an application seeking travel permission. The Bombay High Court on Tuesday allowed the actor to travel to Dubai but with conditions. Khan will have to deposit a cash security of about $3,000 (rupees 200,000) and provide details of his travel itinerary, which runs from May 27-30. In addition, other information required include his flight numbers and their timings and details about his hotel accommodation.
Reports also quoted the court judgment stating that Khan will have to inform the Indian consulate in Dubai about his arrival and departure. The actor will also have to hand over his passport to authorities within 12 hours of his arrival back in India.
Meanwhile, Khan has resumed work and just wrapped filming his ongoing production Bajrangi Bhaijaan, which co-stars Kareena Kapoor.
