Raees controversy: SRK charged for rioting and damaging railway property

Following the ruckus caused during the Raees by Rail promotion activity on January 23, Shah Rukh Khan has been booked for “rioting” and “damaging railway property” at Kota railway station.

The case was registered against the actor on the direction of a railway court by the GRP on Monday after hearing a plea by a vendor, Vikram Singh.

According to the SHO of GRP police, the vendor in his complaint has alleged that the chaos was created by the actor's fans when he arrived at the Kota railway station.

He went on to say that the things got worse when the star threw something at his fans while he was standing at the gate of the coach leading the supporters to burst into a frenzy in a  bid to grab it, thereby overturning his trolley and physically hurting him.

SRK has now been charged under sections 146 (obstructing railway servant in his duties of Railway act) and 145 (nuisance), section 3 (mischief causing damage to public property of the Prevention of Damage to Public Property Act) 427 (mischief causing damage to the amount of Rs 50), 120(b) (criminal conspiracy), 149 (rioting every member of unlawful assembly guilty of offence committed), 147 (rioting) and 160 (committing affray) of IPC.

The rail promotions of Raees also led to another grave situation at Vadodara railway station, causing the death of one and leaving another critically injured.

Meanwhile, Raees over the third weekend has witnessed a drop in its box office earnings and has collected Rs 1.75 crore, making it to a total of Rs 128 crore in the country. However, overseas the flick has crossed the $10 million mark and has collected $ 13.50 million.

Oh God. Why? He took necessary permission.

Looks like they want a selfie with SRK! This is nonsense.

This movie is jinxed...

SRK too the permission to be there and the police said yes along with the officials. It is not his issue if they didn't deliver.

That was a bad plan to start with and someone should bear the consequences of a persons death!!!! Srk should learn a lesson here

Raees team, did you think of consequences of platform dimensions and overcrowding when you decided to take to the trains for promotion? That is the question that diehard SRK fans cannot force to go away

These celebrities cause so much inconvenience to people just to sell their films and make money. SRK and others should stop promoting films in busy areas and causing commotion.

Throw him in jail

just leave SRK alone for once! Zzz..

Kidding right! Don't we have better things to do! Where the heck SRK damaged anything! The man took permission to be there. The one who damaged it should be cases not him! This is so stupid.
