If you thought that our judiciary does not differentiate between the rich and poor or the powerful and the powerless, then it's time for a reality check. The Bombay High Court just pronounced its verdict on the 2002 hit-and-run case involving Bollywood superstar Salman Khan.
The court said that Salman cannot be convicted in this case in which one pavement dweller lost his life and few others were injured. While all of his fans rejoiced after the verdict, many livid netizens took to Twitter and bashed the Bigg Boss 9 host and the verdict.
Here's how Twitter reacted:
