Shah Rukh Khan booked for rioting after railway stall owner’s complaint
Jaipur The Kota government railway police on Monday registered a case against actor Shah Rukh Khan for rioting, unlawful assembly, damaging public property and obstructing a railway official during the promotion of his film on board a train.
The actor travelled on the August Kranti Express from Mumbai to Delhi to promote his latest film Raees.
The case was registered following a complaint lodged by Vikram Singh, 32, who runs a stall on platform No. 1 at the Kota railway station.
In his complaint, Singh said when the train arrived at the station around 5am on January 24, a large number of fans thronged the carriage. “Khan did not deboard the train but waved at his fans from the door to the coach, and threw gifts and footballs at the waiting crowd. This caused a stampede-like situation on the platform,” the complainant said.
The vendor said in the melee, public property and his stall were damaged. The crowd also robbed cash from his stall, he said.
Singh lodged the complaint in the court of the additional chief judicial magistrate, railway court, which forwarded it to the Kota GRP police station for investigation.
