After the investigation, it was discovered that no cognisable offence had taken place,” said a police report filed in the court lately.

A local activist had filed a private complaint in the court here regarding the incident, seeking action against Khan for mistreating security personnel of the stadium. Authorities said in the report they recorded the actor’s statement, and the claims were denied by him. Khan told the authorities that after his team Kolkata Knight Riderswon the match that day, his kids and their pals entered the security and the ground guard Vikas Dalvi requested them to leave.

According to Khan, he only told Dalvi that the children were with him, and they should not be touched by anybody. The kids were then taken by his company manager out of the arena. The actor told police that he got upset when someone talked to him in indecent language. The complainant, Amit Maru, had earlier filed a request against him in the High Court in 2008, but the court’s verdict went in Shah Rukh’s favour, the actor said in the statement to the police, alleging that Maru may have filed the present charge only for publicity.

Following the event, the Mumbai Cricket Association had demanded a five-year prohibition on Shah Rukh that was lifted last year. Shah Rukh Khan had even took to Twitter thanking: “My gentle father in law made me realise how little it matters who was right or who was wrong. What issues is grace. Thanks MCA for your graciousness.”
