Sharma’s flat on the ninth floor of the building had unauthorisedly merged common passage.

Bombay High Court has stayed the FIR lodged against Comedian Kapil Sharma over unauthorised structures allegedly constructed by him at his flat in suburban Goregaon,Mumbai and has directed BMC to resolve the dispute within five weeks.

High Court’s Division Bench comprising of Justice N H Patil and Justice M S Karnik was hearing petitions filed by Kapil Sharma and Bollywood actor Irrfan Khan challenging notices issued to them by Civic body in April and September 2016 directing them to demolish the illegal alterations made by them in their flats in ‘DLH Enclave’, a 18-storeyed residential building in Goregaon without requisite permissions.

BMC informed the High Court that after consultation with the legal experts, it has decided to withdraw the notices.

Following this, HC stayed the FIR lodged against Sharma (in the Goregaon illegal construction case) by the BMC in September last year.

As per Civic body, Sharma’s flat on ninth floor of the building had unauthorisedly merged elevation features, ducts, common passage and part of parking podium into the flat.

The High Court also disposed of petitions filed by Sharma, Khan and Developer.

Bench directed Civic body to grant Sharma and others a personal hearing in the case and resolve dispute within five weeks.


Last year, Comedian had kicked up a controversy 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 Actor had flouted norms not only in his Versova office building but also at his apartment in the suburban Goregaon.
