A case has been filed against Shah Rukh Khan for allegedly damaging property and rioting at Kota Railway Station while he promoted his last film Raees. The case has been filed by a vendor at the Kota station. For the uninitiated, Shah Rukh Khan travelled by August Kranti train from Mumbai to New Delhi, promoting Raees in January, 2017.
The case was registered against the actor last night by the GRP on the direction of a railway court, which heard a plea of a vendor at Kota railway station. Goes by the name of Vikram Singh, the vendor alleged that Shah Rukh Khan was responsible for creating ruckus at the station.”In his complaint, Vikram Singh alleged that on January 23, when Khan arrived at Kota railway station during promotion of Raees, ruckus was created by his fans,” the SHO of GRP police station said.
Vikram Singh also alleged that Shah Rukh, while standing at the gate of the coach of August Kranti Rajdhani Express train threw something at the public and they rushed to grab it, and in the scuffle, his trolley overturned and items on it were damaged and he also got injured. On the vendor’s complaint, the case was registered against Shah Rukh Khan under sections 427 (mischief causing damage to the amount of Rs 50), 120(b) (criminal conspiracy), 147 (rioting), 149 (every member of unlawful assembly guilty of offence committed) and 160 (committing affray) of IPC.
Under sections 145 (nuisance) and 146 (obstructing railway servant in his duties) of Railway Act, and section 3 (mischief causing damage to public property) of the Prevention of Damage to Public Property Act, he said.
Investigation into the matter has been initiated.
Well now if the case has been filed against the super star, another case should also be filed against the Ministry of Railways, as they were responsible for the safety and security of the fans, vendors and passengers, in the train and at the station. True, Shah Rukh Khan was promoting his film Raees, Ministry of Railways too were promoting their Railways through the star power of Shah Rukh Khan. They even shared his pictures while he was travelling, through their official Twitter account.
Well, irony just died a painful death.
