This follows BMC demolishing Kapil Sharma’s illegal construction atop and adjacent to his bungalow in Versova. BMC has also said that it will recover the cost of demolishing the illegal constructions from the stand-up comedian.
Kapil Sharma had earlier 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 the 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.In March last year, the BMC had also recovered the demolition cost of Rs 1.93 lakh from actor Shah Rukh Khan. The civic body had demolished an illegal ramp constructed outside his bungalow Mannat and issued him a notice to pay the cost of demolition.
