Bombay HC stays FIR against Kapil Sharma, directs BMC to resolve dispute

Mumbai (Maharashtra) [India], Mar. 23 (ANI): The Bombay High Court on Thursday stayed the FIR against comedian Kapil Sharma over an alleged illegal construction in his flat in suburban Goregaon.

The High Court has also directed the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) to give a personal hearing to Sharma and resolve the dispute.

The BMC told the High Court that it has withdrawn all litigations against Sharma.

Earlier this month, Sharma stormed a controversy with his tweet alleging that he had been asked to pay a bribe of Rs. five lakh by an official of the BMC.

The BMC later claimed that Sharma had flouted norms not only in his Versova office building but also at his apartment in suburban Goregaon. (ANI)
