India's Bandra magistrate accepted a prosecutor's plea Friday to try film star Salman Khan for homicide after he allegedly drove into a group of homeless people, killing one and injuring three, in 2002, news sources report.
The magistrate accepted an appeal that increased Khan's previous charge for death by negligence to homicide with a maximum sentence of 10 years, The Times of India reported.
The trial has been set for March, though the infamous delays of India's court system may postpone the trial, The Guardian says.
