Rajasthan High Court gives no relief to Shah Rukh Khan in rioting case
Shah Rukh Khan has been ruling the film industry for more than 2 decades but he has also fallen in legal trouble quite a few times. Well, we are now talking about the case which was filed in connection with the death of a man at Vadodara railway station during the promotion of his film ‘Raees’. The Rajasthan High Court looks in no mood to spare our beloved star.
On Wednesday, the Rajasthan High Court clearly stated that the charges of rioting and endangering the lives of people against Shah Rukh Khan during the promotion of ‘Raees’ will continue even after the petitioner seeking withdrawal of the case.
During the hearing, a complainant named Vikram Singh informed the court that he did not wish to pursue the case further. However, public prosecutor Sher Singh Mehla stated that the petitioner could not decide the case because it involved loss to public property. The prosecutor further added that the GRP found Shah Rukh Khan guilty of rioting and endangering life and personal safety of others in its report. Following this, the Rajasthan HC said that the case against SRK will continue. The next hearing in the case will be on May 28, 2019.
To promote ‘Raees’, SRK had travelled from Mumbai to New Delhi in the August Kranti Rajdhani Express on 24 January 2017. As soon as the train halted at the Kota Railway Station, SRK threw gifts for his fans that created a stampede-like situation thereby causing heavy damage to the public property.
During the course of action, railway vendor Vikram Singh’s trolley was damaged. Therefore, he registered a case against SRK under various sections of the IPC.
