Yesterday, Shah Rukh Khan left for Delhi on a train, August Kranti Rajdhani Express along with his Raees team and a few media personnel. The move was to promote his film everywhere. The crew reached the Capital this morning. It definitely was a big promotional blitzkrieg but an unfortunate incident turned the whole experience tragic.
A man died of cardiac arrest at the platform where he had come to catch a glimpse of Shah Rukh Khan. Turns a few people were injured too at the Vadodara station, where the incident took place. Now Railway Minister Suresh Prabhu has ordered a probe into the matter.
Taking to Twitter, Prabhu tweeted a story of the mishap and wrote, “Directed DG RPF to investigate the matter and take stern action against any lapse.” Farid Khan Pathan, a social activist and a resident of Vadodara was amongst thousands of fans who gathered at the station to catch a glimpse of SRK. Sadly, a heart patient Mr Pathan lost his life due to all the chaos at the station.
Shah Rukh Khan issued a statement today about the incident saying, “One of our colleagues was travelling with us. Her uncle came down to see her at Baroda. He suffered from a cardiac arrest. It was really unfortunate. We started the journey thinking we all will travel, spend time with each other when one of your own loses someone one trip like this, it saddens us all.
On behalf of everyone, our prayers and blessings with the whole family. She has reached there. I just spoke to her. I think the burial is in an hour or half hour. We have some of our people with the family members there. Hopefully God will bless her soon.” He also called it unfortunate.
