Mumbai: The Andheri court on Wednesday directed Versova police to register an FIR against popular stand-up Comedian Kapil Sharma under section 187 of the Indian Penal code for alleged violation of the Environment Act.

The Versova police will book the actor under Environment and MRTP act too.

Sharma allegedly dumped the debris near mangroves behind his bungalow in suburban Versova.

A controversy erupted after Sharma alleged that he had been asked to pay a bribe of Rs 5 lakh by an official of the civic body

Kapil had levelled the bribe allegation in tweets in which he tagged Prime Minister Narendra Modi, asking if this was the “achche din” he had promised.

Section 187(Omission to assist public servant when bound by law to give assistance) of the Indian Penal code would be registered against Sharma.

“The allegations that BMC official demanded bribe should be named by Kapil and if he fails to do so which means he is protecting the corrupt person”, said Abha Singh, Advocate and social activist.

“Also the case under MRTP and Environment act would be registered against Kapil for destroying mangroves and illegal constructions”, said Singh.
