Here is a big relief for Sunny Deol and Karisma Kapoor as the actors who were charged for pulling a train’s chain in 1997 while shooting for a film Bajrang has been acquitted by Jaipur court.
Judge Pawan Kumar on Friday argued that the railway court held the duo guilty under sections which have been nullified by Sessions Court in 2010. Also, the case lacks adequate proof against the two.
Sunny Deol and Karisma Kapoor acquitted
Reportedly, the actors were accused of illegally pulling the chain of train 2413-A Uplink Express, which delayed the train by 25 minutes.
Then assistant station master Sitaram Malakar of Narena had lodged a complaint at the General Railway Police, following which the actors were accused of violating Section 141 (needlessly interfering with the means of communication in a train), Section 145 (drunkenness or nuisance), Section 146 (obstructing a railway servant in his duties) and Section 147 (trespass and refusal to desist from trespass) of the Railways Act.
Apart from Sunny Deol and Karisma Kapoor, stuntman Tinu Verma and Satish Shah were also accused in the case but they had not challenged the charges against them in the sessions court in 2010.
