Khan's childhood friend and neighbour, Francis Fernandez, whom the actor fondly called as "Commander", asked the 49-year-old actor to leave in a car driven by his wife.

Khan soon went away in that car, Gharat said while quoting the deposition of Khan's friend.
Fernandez, who stays near the place where the mishap occurred, had come to the spot after hearing the commotion that followed the accident.

The very next moment, Fernandez asked him to leave as he feared the mob, armed with rods and stones, might get violent and hit him.

However, in his statement under Section 313 of CrPC earlier, Khan denied that he ran away and told the court that he had instructed his driver Ashok Singh, who was driving the car at the relevant time, to inform police and take the injured to hospital.
