A vendor at Kota railway station, who had filed complaints with government railway police (GRP) against actor Shah Rukh Khan for rioting and damaging public property while promoting Raees on board a train at the station on January 24, has said that he wants to withdraw the charges.
Vikram Singh, 33, who runs a fruit juice stall at the station had lodged the complaint with the additional chief judicial magistrate railway court in Kota, who had forwarded the complaint to the GRP for investigation.
Singh had earlier complained that Khan waived to his fans from the door of the coach and it created a stampede-like situation. Singh said that he had fallen down and the gate of the VIP entrance had been damaged in the incident.
GRP Kota on February 14 had lodged cases of rioting, unlawful assembly, mischief causing damage, criminal conspiracy of the IPC and relevant sections of the Prevention of Damage to Public Property Act, 1984, and the Railway Act.
Singh said that he doesn’t want to pursue the case as he is poor and doesn’t want to involved in any dispute. “I have sent an application and said that I do not want any action in the case,” he said. He said he will consult his lawyer for withdrawing the case.
However, some contradictions emerged in the case. Singh admitted that on night of the incident he was at his stall where he works with his father. He said he had gone to the spot without his trolley where Khan was promoting his film. Singh is clueless how the accusation of trolley damage appeared in the FIR.
Circle inspector, GRP, Kota, Gangasahay Sharma said Singh had stated that his trolley had got damaged.
