Shah Rukh was drunk, but that's not a crime: Mumbai ACP
"Shah Rukh was drunk. He was smelling of alcohol but he was not drinking at the Wankhede stadium. It is not an offence. He was also abusing and threatening the MCA (Mumbai Cricket Association) and BCCI (Board of Control for Cricket in India) officials," said Sheikh, who had to intervene on Wednesday night to prevent the incident from turning ugly.
Shah Rukh got into a brawl with MCA and BCCI officials after his team defeated Mumbai Indians in an Indian Premier League (IPL) match Wednesday night. Shah Rukh and his entourage, comprising Morani brothers, wanted to celebrate after the presentation ceremony but he was not allowed to do so. What irked Shah Rukh was that MCA officials switched off the flood lights.
Sheikh, who is also member of the MCA managing committee, was present at the ground on match duty and had to rush to prevent the situation from turning ugly.
"I took him out and separated him because the incident was turning ugly. While being taken away he was showering abuses on MCA and BCCI officials. We are investigating the matter," said Sheikh.
Asked if Shah Rukh was provoked by MCA officials, Sheikh said, "We are not concerned about the provocation. We are only concerned about the act."
The MCA is reportedly considering slapping a life ban on Shah Rukh Khan.
