MCA files police complaint against SRK, bans him for life

Bollywood actor had an altercation with the security and officials of the association

The Mumbai Cricket Association officials have lodged a police complaint against Kolkata Knight Riders franchise team co-owner for his alleged misbehaviour last night at the Wankhede Stadium and decided to ban him for life from entering the premises.

"We have lodged a complaint against him at the Marine Drive Police station (for his alleged misbehaviour against MCA officials)," informed MCA secretary Nitin Dalal.

The Bollywood actor had an altercation with the security and officials of the association after the Knight Riders had swamped Mumbai Indians, according to MCA treasurer Ravi Savant.

"He misbehaved and abused the MCA security personnel as well as MCA officials, including our president Vilasrao Deshmukh, after the IPL match (between KKR and Mumbai Indians). We have decided to ban him for life from entering the stadium in future," said Savant, who alleged that the actor was in a totally inebriated state.

Giving the background to what happened after the KKR's 32-run rout of MI in the last IPL game of the season at the Wankhede stadium, Savant said that Shah Rukh and his posse of bodyguards had gone up to the teams' dressing room and then come down and started to step on to the ground.

"The MCA security personnel told them they cannot do so as the match was over which led to Shah Rukh abusing them as well as the MCA officials. There was manhandling too by his people. We have decided to ban him from all future matches at the stadium. We are also going to lodge a police complaint against him," said Savant.

Savant also said that one of the members of the MCA's managing committee who is also a top police official, Iqbal Sheikh, tired to intervene and pacify the actor but could not do so as he was in no mood to listen to anyone.

Asked whether MCA would lodge a complaint with the BCCI over one of the IPL team's owner's behaviour, Savant said all the altercation had taken place in the presence of IPL CEO Sundar Raman and BCCI's media manager Devendra Prabhudesai.

"Of course we will lodge a complaint with the BCCI also," said Savant.

Dalal said the MCA is scheduled to have a managing committee meeting next week and would discuss the scandal.

The controversy vis-a-vis Shah Rukh has come a few days after the cash-rich T20 league was rocked by a sting carried out by a private TV channel in which five players were caught allegedly in trying to indulge in corrupt practices.
