With everything that’s happening these days, it seems there is a good news for Kapil Sharma. Amidst the Kapil-Sunil Grover fight, the Bombay High Court has given some respite to the actor-producer. The Bombay High Court stayed the FIR against Kapil over the alleged illegal construction in his Goregaon’s flat.
The HC has asked the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) to have a ‘personal hearing’ on Kapil’s demolition notice. A division bench led by Justice NH Patil was hearing the petitions filed by Kapil and Bollywood actor Irrfan Khan. They had challenged the notices issued to them by the BMC in April and September 2016 over illegal construction in their respective flats in DLH Enclave.
The petitioners had challenged the demolition notice issued to them in September, claiming that it was illegal. They said that BMC had already issued them a notice in April, following which, a civic suit was filed in the lower court, and the petitioners were granted an interim relief.
They claimed before the HC that as the civic suit was pending and they had already been granted interim relief, the BMC could not have not issued them the second notice in September over same allegations.
The court’s decision came after the civic body informed the court that it has decided to withdraw all litigation from the lower court against the actors. (Kapil Sharma might be JAILED for THREE years. Did his jibe at PM Modi BACKFIRE?)
While no cases over the two notices are pending in the court anymore, the HC directed the parties to resolve the dispute among themselves within five weeks.
Kapil Sharma kicked up a controversy when he tweeted to PM Narendra Modi about after he was allegedly asked to pay a bribe of Rs 5 lakh by a BMC official.
