An attempt has been made to study the multiplicity, angular and pseudo rapidity distributions of relativistic charged particles emerging from the interactions between sulphur and nuclear emulsion nuclei at 200 GeV/nucleon. The distributions from 200 AGeV are compared to the corresponding distributions from the predictions of Monte Carlo code FRITIOF samples. The pseudo rapidity distributions in different Nh-intervals translate to the target fragmentation region with increasing target mass. Finally, the scaling of multiplicity distributions of shower particles successfully describes the consequences of KNO scaling.
