Mumbai police registers case against Kapil Sharma and Irrfan Khan!

Mumbai police has registered case against comedian Kapil Sharma as well as the Piku actor Irrfan Khan under MRTP Act for illegal extension.

“The case has been registered by BMC officials who have found the two Bollywood personalities in violation of the rules under MRTP Act. During the course of the probe the two will be called in for questioning,” an official said.

The FIR, registered by P-South ward sub engineer Abhay Jagtap, books the named flat owners and the builder under section 53 (7) of the Maharashtra Regional Town Planning Act (MRTP), 1966. This section deals with prosecuting flat owners for not complying with notices against unauthorized constructions. Conviction under the section invites a jail term varying from one month to three years, and a fine of Rs 2,000-5,000.

The BMC has found major violations in 15 flats in the Goregaon high-rise. It has found that unauthorized work was carried out on the 9th floor of the building, where Kapil has a flat. It has listed unauthorized merger of elevation features, ducts, voids, common passage and part podium for parking. Irrfan Khan owns a flat on the fifth floor of the building. The alterations were carried out contrary to the full occupation certificate issued by the P-South ward office in November 2013.

On Friday morning, Sharma tagged Prime Minister Narendra Modi to a Twitter post claiming that a BMC official had demanded a bribe of Rs 5 lakh for the construction of his office.

Sharma was at the receiving end of activists and political parties as the civic body’s records indicated that the K (West) ward office had carried out demolition of illegal extensions atop and adjacent to his bungalow in Versova. Officials claimed these extensions had led to a portion of mangroves abutting the bungalow being destroyed.
