MUMBAI: Embroiled in Wankhade Stadium controversy in 2012, Bollywood superstar Shah Rukh Khan is set to face trouble as police has been ordered to file an FIR against him.
The Maharashtra State Commission for Child Rights (MSCCR) has asked police to file an FIR against King Khan for using foul language in the presence of children after an IPL match at Wankhade Stadium in Mumbai two years ago.
Activist-lawyer Abha Singh pursuing the matter while speaking to a portal said, “A.N. Tripathi, Secretary, MSCCR issued the orders two days ago (March 18) to investigate the matter after registering an FIR under relevant provisions of the Indian Penal Code and Juvenile Justice (Care and Protection) Act 2000 (as amended 2006), Sec. 23 and submit a copy to the Commission.”
“An enquiry has also been ordered for not registering the FIR in the matter,” she added.
The lawyer explained that in view of the orders from the commission, the police would now have to register an FIR against SRK for throwing dirty abuses in public, threats, assault public servants on-duty and illegal assembly.
Singh added that the apart from this, the state home departments must immediately share a detailed probe on why the FIR was not filed in the case so far.
The ‘Badshaah’ of B-town got involved into an ugly spat with officials of the Mumbai Cricket Association (MCA) after an IPL match between Mumbai Indians and Kolkata Knight Riders in Mumbai on May 16, 2012.
MCA officials alleged that the ‘Happy New Year’ actor engaged in fisticuffs with some security staff and as they intervened, the superstar threatened them as well. Shah Rukh Khan was also using filthy language in presence of small kids, they further accused.
The actor was banned from entering the MCA premises for five years by a panel headed by late union minister Vilasrao Deshmukh after Mumbai Police registered a non-cognizable offence against him earlier.
