It seems that the legal battle for well-known comedian Kapil Sharma is nowhere near a pause. As per the latest development by Mumbai Police, a fresh FIR has been lodged against comedian Kapil Sharma. As per the FIR Kapil Sharma has been lodged with some serious environmental violations.

The FIR was lodged under various environmental laws like – Environment Protect Act 1986, Maharashtra Regional and Town planning Act 1996 and the Indian Penal Code.
In the FIR it is mentioned that Kapil Sharma’s bungalow which he owns in Oshiwara has an illegal extra floor which permission has not been taken from the authorities. On December 9th only Kapil tweeted to PM saying that he has been asked for a bribe of Rs.50,000 to which Abha Singh has replied that Sharma did not abide by his responsible citizen norms and didn’t inform the anti-corruption bureau.
