Comedian Kapil Sharma, who was recently accused of unauthorised construction at his flat in suburban Goregaon, is likely to face more heat as the forest officials visited his Versva office on Tuesday.
The officials surveyed the premises of Sharma’s office in Versova and the surroundings areas to check the violation by house owners and developers in the vicinity.
Assistant Forest Conservator Makarand Ghodke, while taking to a leading daily, revealed that not only Sharma but 50-60 flat-owners in the area have also violated the norms. The occupants have reportedly harmed the mangroves during the constructions and have made alteration.
Further, he told that they have recorded the GPS readings and will prepare the report within two days. It will be then submitted to the collector who will take a final decision on the issue.
The comedian stirred a controversy last week when he tweeted to PM Modi alleging that he was asked to pay Rs 5 lakhs by an official of BMC (Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation) to build office.
However, the allegations backfired on Kapil Sharma when the BMC official (sub engineer) Abhay Jagtap lodged a complaint against Sharma in this regard at Oshiwara police station. He, in the complaint, had alleged that the comedian has carried illegal construction around his flat at DLH Enclave on New Link Road in Goregaon.
Following this the forest department swung into action and conducted the survey at Sharma’s office.
