Mumbai, Nov 24: The Bombay High Court on Thursday extended temporary relief to comedian actor Kapil Sharma by ordering status quo till next date over the issue of alleged illegal construction in his flat.
Oshiwara Police here in September registered an FIR against him for alleged unauthorised construction at his flat in suburban Goregaon.
In the complaint, Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC)
sub-engineer Abhay Jagtap
had alleged that Sharma, who owns a flat in DLH Enclave on New Link Road in Goregaon, had violated norms and carried out illegal construction in the flat, a senior police official said.
Sharma had kicked up a controversy in the same month by alleging that he had been asked to pay a bribe of Rs five lakh by an official of BMC which, in turn, claimed that the actor had flouted norms in his Versova office building and his apartment in suburban Goregaon.
