A sessions court here on Friday discharged Gurdaspur MP Sunny Deol and film actor Karisma Kapoor in a 22-year-old case of alleged chain pulling in a train at the Naraina railway station in Rajasthan during the shooting of a film. The two actors had challenged the framing of charges against them by a railway court through a revision petition.
Mr. Deol and Ms. Kapoor, along with stuntman Tinu Verma and actor Satish Shah, were accused of entering the Naraina railway station, near Phulera Junction, in 1997 and stopping the 2413-A Uplink Express by pulling its chain, which delayed the train by 25 minutes.
The Assistant Station Master said in his complaint that a few persons from Mumbai shooting for a movie in a nearby village had illegally stopped the train.
Allowing the revision petition, Additional District & Sessions Judge Pawan Kumar held that there was â€œno prosecutable evidenceâ€ against the two actors.
