New Delhi: The Bombay High Court is likely to deliver its verdict on Thursday on actor Salman Khan's appeal against his conviction in the 2002 hit-and-run case.

Earlier, the court had come to the conclusion that the prosecution failed to bring material on record to establish that the actor was driving and was under the influence of alcohol.

Besides observing that the prosecution failed to prove Salman Khan was drunk and driving, the court has also questioned the credibility of Khan's bodyguard Ravindra Patil, a key prosecution witness who had said that the actor was driving drunk and had ignored his warnings repeatedly.

The court noted that no one but Patil had given this version. The court might draw final conclusion in this case today.
