In a jolt to the actor, a sessions court today sentenced him to five years rigorous imprisonment in the 2002 hit-and-run case after which the actor was arrested.
The 49-year-old actor was convicted of culpable homicide for ramming a roadside bakery with his Toyota Land Cruiser and, in the process, killing one person and wounding four others sleeping on the pavement outside.
Meanwhile, the stock market also witnessed a bloodbath where the BSE benchmark Sensex closed 722.77 points lower at 26,717.37.
