According to reports, RTI activist SC Agarwal filed a complaint with the Home Ministry demanding that the actor be stripped of the award which he received in 2010.
Agarwal said that Khan still had a case where he got into a scuffle in a restaurant against him. A mumbai court had framed charges against him for alleged scuffle in a restaurant.
The Ministry later replied saying that they were 'examining' the matter.
Alongwith Khan two others were also charged under Section 325 and 34 of the Indian Penal Code. It is alleged that Khan punched a South African- based businessman and his father-in-law.
Khan was conferred with the Padma Shri in 2010 for his contribution in the field of art.

My take on the Saif Ali Khan 'controversy': "The LORD gave and the LORD has taken away; may the name of the LORD be praised.”
