The Bombay High Court on Thursday overturned the trial court's judgement in the 2002 hit-and-run case which left one person dead and four injured.
Stating that Khan cannot be convicted, the court said, "Prosecution has failed to establish the case against the appellant (Khan) of driving and that too under the influence of alcohol."
Though Khan has a steady fan base which is rejoicing his acquittal, many in social media feel justice has not been delivered even after 13 long years.
And what better way to put across one's views than resorting to humour. Here is what some on Twitter had to say.
