Law Minister Salman Khurshid today said the Wankhede brawl involving actor Shah Rukh Khan was “sad” but it is not right for the government to interfere in every matter.

“These are very sad developments in our society. Clashes between citizens and authorities are always very sad things,” he told reporters outside Parliament.

The Mumbai Cricket Association has banned Kolkata Knight Riders co-owner and Bollywood actor Shah Rukh Khan from entering the Wankhede Stadium for five years for misbehaving with its officials and violating its rules.

On whether government should interfere in the matter, Mr. Khurshid said, “It is not right that government should interfere on every matter. I cannot comment on Shahrukh incident because the authorities concerned should do something about it. The matter is not before us when it will come we will definitely take it seriously.”
