Salman being brought to court
The day began with an almost never-ending wait for the actor, who was to be produced before the metropolitan magistrate SY Shishode by the police, who wanted the court to extend his term of police custody.
Outside the Bandra court, hundreds of people lined the streets to catch a glimpse of the actor. Chaos reigned as the police tried hard to maintain traffic on the Western Express Highway.
The actor finally arrived in the courtroom at 3.20 pm. Brushing aside the arguments of Advocate Abad Ponda, who represents Salman Khan, Shisode has remanded the actor to police custody till October 14 on the grounds that the, "Investigations are at a crucial stage".
The prosecution, however, had demanded that the actor be held in police custody for 10 days, which was rejected by the magistrate. Public prosecutor UD Nagrale had argued that the police wanted to further interrogate the witnesses and also ascertain the ownership of the car.
Salman also spoke in the court in an attempt to convince the magistrate that he should not be remanded to police custody. The actor, who looked tired, said, "If the police wants to interrogate me further, they can ring me up at my place and I can reach the station, which is hardly 15 minutes from my residence."
