The

was
registered
for
allegedly

of
others
after
a
man
suffered
a
heart

promotion
event.
He
was
rushed

the

Shah Rukh Khan And Sanya Malhotra Shoot An Intense Action Stunt For Atlee's Next: ReportShah

An

Action

Report

One
Farheed
Khan
Pathan,
a
local
politician,
had
suffered
a
heart
attack
at
the
Vadodara
railway
station
on
January
23,
2017,
during
the
stampede
caused
by
the
people
eager
to
catch
a
glimpse
of
the
superstar
who
had
arrived
on
a
train.
A
few
others
were
injured
in
the
incident.

Khan
was
travelling
from
Mumbai
to
Delhi
on
August
Kranti
Rajdhani
Express
to
promote
his
movie,
‘Raees’,
and
when
the
train
pulled
into
Vadodara
railway
station,
hundreds
of
his
fans
rushed
to
the
platform
to
catch
his
glimpse.
The
superstar
threw
‘smiley
balls’
and
‘t-shirts’
at
the
crowd,
causing
a
scuffle.

One
Jitendra
Solanki
had
moved
the
Vadodara
court
seeking
the
initiation
of
criminal
proceedings
against
Khan
after
the
police
refused
to
take
his
complaint
and
register
an
FIR
against
the
superstar.

The
complainant
raised
the
issue
of
“criminal
negligence
and
recklessness” on
part
of
Khan
by
throwing
gifts
at
his
fans
which
caused
the
stampede
and
subsequent
death
of
a
person.

The
victim’s
relative
had
opposed
Khan’s
plea
in
the
high
court,
saying
that
the
actor
caused
chaos
at
the
railway
station
by
throwing
balls
and
t-shirts
at
the
crowd
of
his
fans
on
the
platform.
Khan’s
“irresponsible
behaviour”
caused
the
death
of
his
fan
and
injuries
to
others.

Khan’s
lawyer
Mihir
Thakore
argued
that
throwing
‘smiley
balls’ and
t-shirts
cannot
be
considered
to
be
rash
or
negligent
either
endangering
human
life
or
personal
safety
by
any
stretch
of
the
imagination.

In
its
order,
the
high
court
observed
that
the
complaint
against
Khan
was
filed
by
a
person
who
had
no
direct
connection
with
the
incident
in
question.

The
HC
also
observed
that
it
is
required
to
consider
if
it
would
be
fair
and
justifiable
to
allow
a
trial
against
Khan
in
Vadodara
and
inconvenience
ordinary
citizens
of
the
city.
