NEW DELHI: The Supreme Court on Monday dismissed a petition seeking cancellation of bail of film star Salman Khan who was convicted and sentenced in a hit and run case.

The apex court bench headed by Chief Justice H.L. Dattu declined the plea by one of the alleged victims associated with the case and belonging to Mumbai Police.

The petitioner had challenged the Bombay High Court order granting bail to Salman. 

Salman was granted bail by the Bombay High Court on the very day he was convicted and sentenced by the sessions court. 

On May 6, Khan was found guilty in the September 28, 2002 hit and run case and sentenced to five years' jail for various charges, including 'culpable homicide not amounting to murder'.

One person was killed and four injured when the actor's car ran over them while they were sleeping on a pavement.
