A sessions court on Wednesday rejected actor Salman Khan’s plea seeking an adjournment of three weeks in the 2002 alleged hit-and-run trial.

Khan will now have to be present before the court on Friday when his statement will be recorded by judge D W Deshpande under Section 313 of the CrPC.

The accused will be given a chance to explain the circumstances and allegations against him and also answer questions on the evidence.

Meanwhile, with the completion of the cross-examination of investigating officer Kishan Shengal, the prosecution declared it had closed its case in the 13-year-old case.

Defence advocate Srikant Shivde had sought the adjournment as “the actor’s presence was required in the criminal trial in Jodhpur”. But special public prosecutor Pradip Gharat opposed the plea. During Shengal’s cross-examination on Wednesday , Shivde questioned him on the statement of deceased witness Ravindra Patil.

The court also rejected Shivde’s plea to re-examine the other investigating officer in the case, Rajendra Kadam.
