A local court on Friday completed its pre-trial formalities in the 2012 assault case registered against Bollywood actor Saif Ali Khan, paving the way to start the trial against him and two others.
“The (metropolitan) court today gave a copy of the CCTV footage of the assault incident to the accused after their lawyers had made an application. The first witness is likely to depose in November,” public prosecutor Wajid Sheikh said.
Khan and his two friends had been arrested following a complaint filed by businessman Iqbal Mir Sharma after an alleged fight at the Wasabi Restaurant inside Taj Hotel in Colaba on February 22, 2012. Later, they were released on bail.
