Mumbai: Comedian Kapil Sharma has challenged in the Bombay High Court a civic notice to tear down a part of his apartment in Mumbai’s Goregaon.
The BMC or Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation issued a demolition notice to Mr Sharma last month, days after he alleged in tweets tagging Prime Minister Narendra Modi that he had been asked to pay Rs. 5 lakh bribe by a civic official to sanction an office.
“Is it your Acche Din?” the wildly popular comedy host tweeted, leaving the administration in Maharashtra flustered. Both the BMC and Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis hastened to reassure Mr Sharma that action would be taken.
Days later, the civic body said there were irregularities not just in Mr Sharma’s office but also his Goregaon apartment. Portions in his apartment had been built over space designated for parking, officials alleged.
Mr Sharma’s lawyer Pradeep Thorat said: “A similar case in connection with the same flat is already pending in the city civil court.”
The civic body also filed a complaint against Mr Sharma and his builders.
