FIR against Kapil Sharma

India's renowned comedian Kapil Sharma has now landed in trouble with law. Sharma has been booked for allegedly dumping the debris near mangroves behind his bungalow in suburban Versova and also making illegal construction near it.

Reportedly, an FIR was filed on Wednesday by a social worker Aabha Singh. The complaint has been lodged under environment protection act and MRTP act for destroying mangroves in Mumbai’s Versova area.






The comedian in September this year had kicked up a controversy by alleging that he had been asked to pay a bribe of Rs 5 lakh by an official of BMC. The BMC, however, alleged that Sharma had flouted norms not only in his Versova office building but also at his apartment in suburban Goregaon.

He had also tagged Prime Minister Narendra Modi in a tweet posted on September 9.

“I am paying Rs 15 cr income tax from last 5 year n still i have to pay Rs 5 lakhs bribe to BMC office for making my office @narendramodi (sic),” Kapil had said in the tweet.



Aabha Singh alleged that Kapil sharma hadn't given the name of persona asking for bribe and therefore, he should also be charged under IPC 187. Under this he can be jailed for 1 to 6 months. She further alleged that not only Kapil, but also others who are involved in illegal construction should be charged.
