Enforcement Directorate questions Salman Khan
February 24, 2006 00:31 IST
Bollywood star Salman Khan was questioned on Thursday by the Enforcement Directorate regarding his Toyota Landcruiser, which allegedly rammed into a shop in suburban Bandra in September 2002, killing one person and injuring four.
Salman was called by the ED to answer questions with regard to purchase of the imported car, sources said. The actor's lawyer Deepesh Mehta, however, said that it was a routine inquiry that ED carries out with anyone who purchases an imported car, about whether duties have been paid.
Salman has already given a statement that he purchased the car from a person who came here from Dubai after three years of stay. He also produced necessary documents in this regard.
The car was earlier seized by the police at the time of the accident, but later returned to the actor on his request. Salman is still facing trial in the hit-and-run case.
