A city-based man approached a local court on Monday seeking its directions to Railway Police to file a case against actor Shah Rukh Khan in connection with the death of a person following a stampede during the superstar’s train promotion campaign for his film “Raees” last month.
Farid Khan Pathan had died of cardiac arrest as crowd went berserk after Shah Rukh arrived by August Kranti Rajdhani Express at the Vadodara railway station on the night of January 23. Solanki approached the court of Judicial Magistrate First Class here seeking its directions to railway police at Vadodara to register a case against actor Shah Rukh Khan.
Solanki’s lawyer Juned L Saiyed said his client has demanded registration of cases against actor and others under IPC 304 (a) (causing death by negligence), 427 (mischief causing damage to the amount of fifty rupees), 336 (act endangering life or personal safety of others) and 147 (punishment for rioting).
SRK had boarded the train from Mumbai Central for Delhi as part of his promotional campaign ‘Raees by Rail’.
