MUMBAI: Bollywood actor Salman Khan's blood sample revealed a high alcohol content after he underwent a test following the 2002 accident case in Mumbai, a chemical analysis expert informed the sessions court here Wednesday.

D.K. Balashanker from the Sir J.J. Hospital forensic lab said various tests revealed a higher than normal alcohol content in Salman's blood.

"I conducted the Morpholoin test which was positive... 62 mg ethyl alcohol was found in Salman Khan's blood," Balashanker informed Sessions Judge D.W. Deshpande.

Salman Wednesday appeared before the court in the ongoing retrial in the Sep 28, 2002, hit-and-run case, which left one pavement dweller dead and four others injured.

The sessions court had Dec 5 last year ordered a retrial on the grounds that some witnesses had not been examined in connection with the enhanced charge of "culpable homicide not amounting to murder" slapped on Salman by a magistrate halfway through the hearing in the trial court.

Salman was earlier tried for the less serious offence of causing death by negligence which stipulated a jail term of two years. The enhanced charge attracts a 10-year prison sentence.
