Mumbai, Mar 9 (ANI): A Mumbai sessions court on Friday granted bail to Bollywood actor John Abraham in connection with a 2006 rash driving case.
The court had earlier rejected his surrender plea in connection with the incident in which two pedestrians were hurt while Abraham was riding his motorbike in Mumbai's Khar Danda area.
Abraham was taken into custody after the court agreed that he should spend 15 days in jail for rash and negligent driving, a sentence given to him by a lower court in 2010. n October 14, 2010, the Metropolitan Magistrate Court at Bandra convicted John for the rash driving incident in which two persons were injured, and sentenced him to a 15-day jail term. He was granted bail the same day.
A fortnight later, the model-actor filed an appeal in the Sessions Court against the conviction. His appeal stated that "judge has misconstrued and has, without applying the principles relating to the acts of rashness and criminal negligence, convicted the applicant (John)".
The incident dates back to April 8, 2006, when Abraham allegedly rammed his Yamaha Hayabusa bike into a bicycle, injuring two youngsters - Shyam Kasbe (22) and Tanmay Majhi (19) - on Carter Road in suburban Bandra.
According to police, the actor was returning from Maureen Wadia's Gladrags show while both the youngsters were returning after closing their shop.(ANI)
