The Andheri court on Wednesday directed police to file FIR against the popular stand up comedian and actor Kapil Sharma in a case related to environment protection act and MRTP act for destroying mangroves in Versova, Mumbai.
FIR is filled under section 187 of the Indian Penal code for alleged violation of the Environment Act.
Kapil Sharma allegedly dumped the debris near mangroves behind his bungalow in suburban Versova.
Earlier Sharma had kicked up a controversy last month by alleging that he had been asked to pay a bribe of Rs 5 lakh by an official of BMC which, in turn, claimed that the actor had flouted norms not only in his Versova office building but also at his apartment in suburban Goregaon.
