New Delhi: After the Kapil Sharma-BMC fiasco which ended in the comedian being slapped with accusation of illegal activities pertaining to the acquisition of land, another Bollywood personality, Irrfan Khan, was dragged out by the municipal corporation for alleged unauthorised constructions at his fifth-floor flat in the actor’s Goregaon building.
But the peculiar thing is that the building in which the two actors reside, the DLH Enclave, has been a constant pickle for the municipality from 2014 when complaints were registered regarding unauthorised constructions. The BMC had issued a notice in November 2014 under Section 351 of the Mumbai Municipal Corporation Act. It was only after the developer of the building approached the city civil court that an interim relief was granted in December 2014.
The BMC has served notice to Kapil Sharma for his ninth-floor and Irrfan Khan for his fifth floor construction of illegal structures atop the flat.
“A report with regards to unauthorized constructions at the building was submitted to municipal commissioner Ajoy Mehta on September 9. Further action is likely to be taken after Ganeshotsav,” a senior civic official said.
Not only the two actors, but several other residents inside the building have been served notice by the corporation.
The issue of illegal construction sprang into national spotlight when comedian Kapil Sharma shared through his Twitter account that he had been paying bribes on top of income tax to the state.
