Trouble mounts for Kapil Sharma; MNS files Police complaint

Kapil Sharma cancels shoot again; Ajay Devgan storms out of the sets

Continuing the row of comedian Kapil Sharma’s bribe tweet, Raj Thackeray-led MNS on Monday filed a complaint against the artist for keeping quiet on his allegation that he was asked for a bribe by the civic officials, and violation of building norms by him.

Sharma had kicked up a controversy last week by claiming that he had been asked to pay a bribe of Rs 5 lakh by an official of BMC which, in turn, claimed that the actor had flouted measures not only in his Versova office building but also at his apartment in suburban Goregaon.

MNS group leader in Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC), Sandeep Deshpande today registered the complaint against Sharma at Versova police station. He demanded that the complaint must be turned into a FIR and an investigation to be ordered into the matter.

“Yes, I filed a complaint with Versova police through my advocate against the comedian under the section 176 of IPC as he kept mum on the alleged bribery issue and did not file a complaint nor brought this to the notice of the concerned authorities,” Deshpande said.

Deshpande also added “In this case, Sharma did not act as a responsible citizen and failed to live up to his duty. Therefore, I have demanded the police officials to go into the merits of my complaint, convert it into an FIR and call him for further investigation,”.

Meanwhile, MNS general secretary Shalini Thackeray today visited the tehsildar office in suburban Andheri along with her supporters and demanded the concerned officials to register an FIR against Sharma for allegedly destroying the mangroves.

“We have filed complaints against the comedian with tehsildar as well as with Versova police station to investigate the matter thoroughly. This is really very unfortunate that celebrities are given special treatment and they often take law into their own hands,” Thackeray said.

She also added “Owing to our persistent demands, the concerned officials are going to do ‘panchnama’ and forward their report to Versova police. We are going to take up this issue up to its logical end,”

The opposition Congress had used the matter to target BJP and Shiv Sena, who together control BMC. However, the Shiv Sena had dared Kapil to name the bribe-seeker.

BJP MLA Ram Kadam had already filed a complaint with the cyber cell of Mumbai police and asked to forward it to the Anti-Corruption Bureau to investigate into Sharma’s allegations.

Kapil had on Friday tweeted his anguish saying that he has been asked to pay the bribe of Rs 5 Lakhs by a BMC official for his office. Since he tagged the Prime Minister Narendra Modi, the tweet generated sharp reactions from all major political parties, with an eye on the forthcoming civic elections.

It also sparkled an immediate response from Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis, who requested Sharma to provide every information and the name of the official in order to punish the culprit.

Later, in an apparent effort to cap the controversy from increasing, Sharma said he did not seek to blame any political party.
