    SRK blocks road, neighbours angry

    Residents irked at King Khan for allegedly restricting entry to an access road; cops claim that they put up the barricades only for Bandra Fair

    Shah Rukh Khan, may have a fewer fans after citizens who reside in and around Mount Mary Church and Bandstand, are angry at him for allegedly blocking the cement road behind his bungalow at Bandstand.
    According to the residents, security guards employed by the actor have blocked the lane adjacent to Mannat, the road behind his bungalow and restrained access to the cement road lane.

    Angry residents
    Residents complained that barricades had been *****ed at the entrance leading to the lane and the security guards and police authorities did not allow residents to use the road, even though the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) maintains the road.

    "The police say that they have *****ed the barricades for the Bandra fair, but even on other days, access to the road is restricted by Khan's security guards," said Khalid Qureshi, president of the NCP Bandra Taluka.

The restrictions have been imposed keeping in view the benefits of the pedestrians and also the motorists, who approach the church from the main road and the road from Meh**** studios. People have a habit of using a short cut from the Caine Road via this road adjacent to Shah Rukh's bungalow Mannat."

    Despite several attempts and messages to Shah Rukh Khan and his secretary Karuna, they were unavailable for comment.

    A concrete ramp like structure has come alongside Mannat on the restricted road. According to Qureshi, NCP workers from the area had taken up the matter with NCP city president Narendra Verma, who had promised to pursue the matter with the authorities, if there were any irregularities in the ma
