Lawyer Nem Singh Rathore who filed the complaint on behalf of Anand Singh Rathore, the director of the Jaipur Cricket Academy said that smoking in public has been banned in Rajasthan since 2010 and SRK had been caught puffing away in front of thousands of spectators. His act was even broadcast live on the TV channel which was airing the match.(Yahoo)

Nem Singh further added that spectators were being allowed into the stadium only after frisking. "The police was confiscating any objectionable items including cigarettes while frisking. However, it seems Shah Rukh was allowed to carry the cigarette packet into the stadium which is negligence on part of the police,” he said in his complaint.(Bing)
