Kapil Sharma approaches Bombay HC, challenges BMC's order to raze Versova office

Sharma, who has been in the eye of the storm ever since he alleged that BMC officials had asked him for a bribe in exchange for regularising his office space, is facing a slew of police complaints and cases for carrying out unauthorised additions to his Versova and Oshiwara properties in Mumbai, 'destroying' mangroves and for refusing to name the civic employees who had asked for the bribe. A portion of the illegal constructions at his Versova bungalow have already been demolished by the BMC.

The BMC's K (West) ward's assistant municipal commissioner Parag Masurkar had told Times Of India, that the comedian was issued a stop work notice as he had built an additional second floor and also an extension to the ground floor of the bungalow, earlier this year. "The stop work notice was given for the unauthorised horizontal extension to the existing ground plus one storied structure. On 4 August, after receiving no reply from Sharma the same was demolished," Masurkar was quoted by TOI as saying.
