John Abraham gets bail, narrowly escapes jail sentence
Bollywood actor John Abraham narrowly escapes jail sentence. The 39-year-old actor John Abraham has been granted bail by the Bombay High Court against a bond of Rs. 20,000. This afternoon, the actor was taken into custody after a Mumbai sessions court turned down John Abraham's plea challenging the 15-day simple imprisonment given to him by a lower court in a 2006 case of rash and negligent driving.
On October 14, 2010, the Metropolitan Magistrate Court at Bandra convicted the 39- year old actor 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 ".
The incident dates back to 8th April 2006, when Abraham allegedly rammed his Yamaha Hayabusa bike into a bicycle, injuring two youngsters on Carter Road in suburban Bandra. According to police, the actor was returning from Gladrags show while both the youngsters were returning after closing their shop.
According to John’s application, even the victims “had not made out a case of either criminal negligence or rashness” against him. “The lower court has relied upon hearsay evidence in convicting the appellant (John),” the appeal had said.
