Complaint against SRK in MP court

A private criminal complaint was on Tuesday filed in a local court against actor Shahrukh Khan for his alleged involvement in the fracas at Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai last month.

The complaint was filed by a local lawyer cum activist Indrajeet Singh Bhatia under section 200 of CrPc [examination of complainant] in the court of Judicial Magistrate [First Class] Sangeeta Tiwari.

Admitting the complaint, the court posted the matter to 9 July. The Mumbai Police on 17 May had registered a non-cognisable offence against Shah Rukh and three others in connection with the May 16 incident involving them and the officials of the Mumbai Cricket Association at Wankhede Stadium.

Bhatia urged the court to book Shahrukh under sections 294 [obscene acts and songs], 323 (punishment for voluntarily causing hurt), 353 [assault or criminal force to deter public servant from discharge of his duty] and section 499 [defamation] of the Indian Penal Code.

Stating that the actor is ‘not above the law’, Bhatia moved another application as istgaasa [complaint] before the same court under section 156 [liability of agent of owner of occupier for whose benefit riot is committed] of IPC to enable him to lodge an FIR against Shahrukh who is also the co-owner of the Kolkata Knight Riders [KKR] franchise.
