Rajasthan High Court dismisses Sunny Deol’s plea

The Rajasthan High Court dismissed an application filed by Bollywood actor Sunny Deol seeking exemption from personal appearance in a local court in connection with a case related to delaying of a train illegally while shooting a film in 1997.

Sunny Deol, actress Karishma Kapoor, stuntman Tinu Verma and another person have been accused of illegally halting a train, when it was starting from Narena railway station in Phulera, while shooting for the film Bajrang.

Stating that the actor is not above the law, the court asked Deol to appear before it as and when required during the trial.

According to the prosecution, the film’s director entered the station with a huge crowd and just when the train was about to leave they pulled the emergency chain, delaying it by 25 minutes.

Following a complaint lodged by the then station master, the ACJM (Railway) court in Jaipur took cognizance of the matter and issued a warrant against the film’s crew.
