SRK in spat with MCA officials, confusion over ban

Mumbai, May 17 (PTI) Kolkata Knight Riders' co-owner and Bollywood superstar Shah Rukh Khan was today banned for life from Wankhede Stadium after getting into an alleged scuffle with Mumbai Cricket Association officials as the IPL continued to be dogged by controversies. Within days of a TV sting operation that implicated five players in spot-fixing, the IPL was hit by another furore during KKR's match against Mumbai Indians here last night with one of its franchise owners in the spotlight. The MCA officials have lodged a police complaint against Khan for his alleged misbehaviour at the 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 star 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. But there was confusion over whether the actor has actually been banned with IPL Chairman Rajiv Shukla saying a final decision on the matter would only be taken after getting the version of all the involved parties. "I will take the version of the MCA, Shah Rukh Khan and the police before talking about the issue," he told reporters in New Delhi. "The decision on ban is taken by the Working Committee so I will speak to MCA President Vilasrao Deshmukh on this. I have to take the version of all the parties involved and then speak," Shukla added. MORE
