The police on Thursday registered a non-cognisable case against actor Shah Rukh Khan and three others in connection with the scuffle at Wankhede Stadium on Wednesday night.
The police said Khan was in an inebriated condition when he abused the security guard, Vikas Dalvi, following which the Mumbai Cricket Association (MCA) officials approached the Marine Drive police station and submitted a written complaint.
The application, submitted by MCA treasurer Ravi Sawant and other officials, claimed that the actor had used foul language. It also alleged that he hit the watchman as he did not allow Khan to enter the ground.
The letter claimed that the team owner threatened each and every official present there in a ‘fully’ drunk state. The police have asked the MCA officials for the CCTV footage of the fight.
Iqbal Shaikh, assistant commissioner of police, Colaba division commissioner, said he had to intervene in the fight. “The priority was to diffuse the situation. I took Khan away from there and escorted him out. He was smelling of alcohol and he continued to abuse MCA officials while on his way out.”
The police said that the actor had also abused a girl. “We are trying to trace her.” The police said the actor had come to the venue after the award ceremony. He had allegedly consumed liquor before reaching there.
An officer from Marine Drive police station said, “Even though he did not drink at the stadium, we will probe if he had a permit.”
“An NC was registered under Sections 323 (voluntarily causing hurt) and 504 (intentional insult with intent to provoke breach of the peace) of the Indian Penal Code. Statements of the guard and the joint secretary of MCA, Nitin Dalal, were taken,” said inspector Avinash Shingate.
