Vadodara railway station stampede case: Shah rukh should be booked, police tells court

Seems fresh trouble for Shahrukh Khan in the Vadodara railway station stampede case. Railway police have submitted a report in court that states that Shah Rukh Khan and film distributor Excel Entertainment Pvt Ltd ignored safety and security guidelines, and threw T-shirts and balls towards the people on the platform, resulting in a stampede-like situation. The report says they should be booked for the death of one person and injuries to several others at Vadodara railway station on January 23, 2017.

Shahrukh Khan had traveled by August Kranti Rajdhani Express train as part of the promotion of the movie ‘Raees’. The train halted at Vadodara railway station for 10 minutes, and Shah Rukh Khan came out of the train for almost 20 seconds and stood at the coach’s door.

SRK threw T-shirts and balls towards the public which resulted in a stampede-like situation, which endangered the lives of people. One person died and two police officers lost consciousness in the stampede.

“If Shah Rukh Khan had not thrown T-shirts, balls and other things towards the public, then such an incident would not have occurred, thus owner of Excel Entertainment Pvt Ltd Mumbai and film actor Shah Rukh Khan should be booked under the IPC sections 279 (rash and negligent act), 336 (act endangering life or personal safety of others), 337 (causing hurt by act endangering life or personal safety of others), 338 (causing grievous hurt by act endangering life or personal safety of others), 304a2 (causing death by negligence) and sections of Railway Act 145,152,175 and 179,” stated the report, which was shared by the lawyer of Jitendra Solanki, who had lodged a complaint.
