SRK booked for vandalism, it was ‘gareeb’ vendor’s complaint against ‘Raees’ superstar

Last month, a person had died and many commuters had to face inconvenience as Bollywood superstar Shah Rukh Khan (SRK) had undertaken a train journey from Mumbai to Delhi to promote his movie Raees.

Many people had back then wondered if SRK had taken prior permission from Railways and whether this promotional event was charged for by the railways. One activist even demanded an FIR against SRK and Railway officials for breaking rules.

While there is no official word from Indian Railways yet, a complaint has been registered against SRK accusing him of “rioting” (legal term for any force or violence used by a group of persons) and as per reports, an FIR has been filed.

And this complaint has not been filed by any activist but a 32-year-old man who runs a food stall at platform no. 1 of Kota Railway station. This man, named Vikram Singh, claims that SRK and his fans caused physical injury and monetary losses to him.

As per Vikram, SRK waved at the crowd and threw gifts like football among them, which caused a stampede like station at the platform as his fans rushed to collect the souvenirs thrown by the superstar.

In the ensuing pandemonium, Vikram’s stall was overturned and goods were trampled upon by the crowd. Not only it caused damage to the goods and physical injuries to him, Vikram claims that someone in the crowd even stole money from his cashbox while he was trying to save his stall and himself.

Since the incident happened on a railway station and Railways didn’t appear to be one of the complainants, Vikram had to file a complaint with the GRP (Government Railway Police) himself. He first filed the complaint in the railway court, which in turn forwarded it to the Kota GRP police station.

The police have now registered the case and have started investigations. It now remains to be seen if the case will drag on and on for years or if SRK could reach out to Vikram and settle this outside court.
