Mumbai: May 22, 2012

Rajasthan Police on Tuesday served a summon on Kolkata Knight Riders co-owner Shahrukh Khan to appear in a Jaipur court following the complaint against the actor for smoking at Jaipur`s Sawai Man Singh stadium in April.

According to report in Zeenews, the complainant, Anand Singh Rathore, had moved court on April 9, a day after the IPL match. Rathore is the director of a private cricket academy in Jaipur. He alleged that despite a ban on smoking in public, the actor, co-owner of Kolkata Knight Riders, puffed away in front of thousands of cricket fans.

The court took note of the complaint and asked the actor to be present for hearing on Saturday next, May 26.

Recently, SRK was issued a five-year ban from entering Wankhede stadium after an alleged scuffle and exchange of expletives with the stadium staff and officials of the Mumbai Cricket Association (MCA).
