As a part of the promotional strategy for Raees, Shah Rukh Khan was a part of a train journey from Mumbai to New Delhi on August Kranti Rajdhani Express. It was a unique promotional strategy but no one had a clue that it would result in a mess later on. Considering SRK is a superstar, fans wanted to see him and many gathered at railway stations just to get a glimpse of the actor. When the train briefly stopped at the Kota railway station on January 24, 2017, SRK threw gifts at his fans and one of the gifts landed at a vendor’s trolley and destroyed all the food. In the stampede, his money was stolen. 

A case against the Dilwale actor was registered by railway vendor Vikram Singh, whose trolley was broken, under various sections of the Indian Penal Code (IPC) including 147: rioting, 149: unlawful assembly, 160: affray, 427: mischief causing damage, 120B: criminal conspiracy, Section 3 of prevention of damage of public property, 145: drunkenness and nuisance and 146: obstructing railway employees from their duties of the Railways Act 1989. Now, according to reports, the complainant wants to withdraw the case and is no longer interested in pursuing it any further. 

But Public Prosecutor Sher Singh Mehla said the petitioner could not decide the case because it involved public property loss. The next hearing is on May 28. What do you have to say about it? Let us know in the comments below!
