MUMBAI: Bollywood superstar Salman Khan, currently out on bail after being convicted in 2002 hit-and-run case, was granted permission to travel abroad on Tuesday.

The Bombay High Court allowed the ‘Dabangg’ actor to travel abroad after an application was filed on Wednesday by him seeking permission as he intended to travel to Dubai for a show on May 29.

49-year-old Khan was convicted and sentenced to five years imprisonment by the Session Court on May 6 in 13-year-old hit-and-run case in which one person was killed and four persons were injured. However, the actor managed to get an interim bail soon after.

On May 8, the Bombay High Court suspended the actor’s sentence and extended his bail and said that the actor would need to seek permission whenever he wants to travel abroad. (Also Read: Salman Khan Case: Salman Khan’s sentence suspended in Bombay High Court)
