Shahrukh Khan’s Wankhede trouble refuses to die!
Just when we thought Shahrukh Khan had put his Wankhede Stadium controversy to rest after his team Kolkata Knight Riders won the Indian Premier League 5, newer troubles are coming to the fore. Now, lawyer-cum-activist Indrajeet Singh Bhatia has filed a private criminal complaint against SRK at a local court in Indore, Madhya Pradesh, for his alleged involvement in the fracas that occurred last month. Bhatia filed the case on Tuesday under section 200 of CrPc (examination of complainant) in the court of Judicial Magistrate (First Class) Sangeeta Tiwari. He has also levelled additional charges against him 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 499 (defamation) of the Indian Penal Code. Admitting the complaint, the court posted the matter to July 9. This is not the first time a complaint has been registered against Shahrukh after he fought with the officials of the Mumbai Cricket Association on May 16. Immediately after the incident, the Mumbai Police had registered a complaint for a non-cognisable offence against Shahrukh and three others. And now Bhatia has drawn SRK into more legal tangles. We wonder how King Khan will react to this move.
