Twitter users were at their sarcastic after they learned that Salman Khan inaugurated a driving school. They are connecting the inauguration with the hit-and-run case in which Salman was acquitted. The actor was accused of driving over a man and wounding four others on a pavement in a drunk driving case in September 2002 in Mumbai.
As per reports, Salman inaugurated Belhasa Driving Centre’s latest branch in Al Quoz Dubai where the actor is filming his upcoming movie ‘Tiger Zinda Hai’ with actress Katrina Kaif, which is a sequel to their 2012 blockbuster ‘Ek Tha Tiger’.

The school is owned by UAE-based billionaire Rashed Belhasa, who was also present at the inauguration. The actor and Belhasa are believed to be friends based on their photos on social media.
But the ribbon-cutting of the driving school by Salman did not go unnoticed by Twitterati:

In June this year, the actor was also mocked for speaking on road safety at the launch of e-cycles sold under the brand Being Human, his charity.
Last year, the actor was acquitted by the Bombay High Court in a verdict that did not go down well with the masses.
