Managing committee to decide ban on SRK: Vilasrao Deshmukh

Mumbai/New Delhi, May 17 (ANI): Mumbai Cricket Association (MCA) president Vilasrao Deshmukh on Thursday said that the MCA managing committee will take final call on banning Kolkata Knight Riders co-owner Shah Rukh Khan or not.

Talking to media here a day after Khan reportedly misbehaved with security personnel and MCA officials, Deshmukh said: "The managing committee has suggested ban on SRK. Managing Committee will decide what action to take on SRK brawl."

"I was not present when the alleged incident occurred. However, MCA officials complained about SRK's behaviour," he added.

BCCI Chief Administrative Officer Ratnakar Shetty said: "An unprovoked incident took place. I am in MCA and BCCI as well. We can speak only after getting complete information on this."

"Definitely the BCCI will look at whatever MCA has to say, because we don't know what actually transpired there. At this point, it won't be possible for the BCCI to comment," he added.

On the ban on Khan, Shetty said, "I was not in Mumbai yesterday, so it won't be right if I speak on this incident. I really don't know the other details of what action has been taken by the MCA. Once the matter comes to BCCI, things will be looked into.

Meanwhile, refusing to comment on the issue, Royal Challengers Bangalore owner Vijay Mallya said: "I think it's not correct for me to comment. I have only seen on television. I know Shah Rukh very well. He is very passionate about his team. Those who are able to investigate will investigate."

Earlier, Indian Premier League (IPL) Governing Council chairman Rajiv Shukla said no final decision has been taken on banning Khan from the Wankhede Stadium.

"I will take the version of the MCA, Shah Rukh Khan and the police before talking about the issue," Shukla said.

"The decision of a ban is taken by the Working Committee (of the BCCI). So, I will speak to MCA President Vilasrao Deshmukh on this. I have to take the version of all parties involved and then speak," Shukla added.

The scuffle happened last night when the actor and his entourage were stopped from going on to the ground after the match, which the Kolkata Knight Riders won.

The cricket association has lodged a police complaint and said it will also complain to the BCCI.

"He (Khan) 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," MCA treasurer Ravi Sawant said.

"He was dead drunk, our security tried to stop him but he pushed him and abused in such filthy language that I cannot use it here. Our officials tried to pacify him but he started abusing them, he abused MCA, BCCI and used the f word and said whatever you want to do you do it...," Sawant added. (ANI)
