Kalinga Sena withdraws threat to throw ink at Shah Rukh Khan
The Kalinga Sena on Monday withdrew its threat of throwing ink at Bollywood star Shah Rukh Khan during his visit to Odisha for participating in the opening ceremony of the Men’s Hockey World Cup on Tuesday. The fringe outfit took the decision following an appeal from Hockey India president Mohammed Mushtaque Ahmad.
“We have decided to withdraw our pledge following the request by Hockey India President. Since it is an international event and Shah Rukh Khan is a promoter, we don’t want to protest, as that would give a bad name to Odisha,” Kalinga Sena chief Hemant Rath said.
