Mumbai, February 2: The Mumbai police have started to probe regarding the alterations notice sent by BMC to actors Kapil Sharma and Irfan Khan along with four others, including a developer, as part of the investigation into the claims of illegal alterations in their apartments at DLH Enclave in Oshiwara.
A FIR was filed by the Oshiwara police last year against the accused under Section 53(7) of the Maharashtra Regional Town Planning (MRTP) Act.
An officer from Oshiwara Police Station said a charge sheet will soon be submitted before the court. The officer also said that "large-scale violations" were found during inspections of the apartments.
The police sources said an inspection of Sharma's apartment revealed the walls were pulled down to make the rooms bigger. "In the original building plan, the kitchen was next to the entrance of the apartment. However, we found it next to a bedroom, which itself was made bigger by pulling down a wall. A major portion of refuge area too was taken over," a police source said.
Irfan and Sharma who is looking to sell off the flat while blaming the DLH developer for alterations - were not available for comment.
Sharma's troubles started in September last year, when Kapil Sharma has created conspiracy by his famous tweet, "Yeh hain aapke acche din?" to Prime Minister Narendra Modi, blaming the BMC officials had demanded Rs 5 lakh bribe to allow the set up of his office (at his Versova bungalow).
Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis assured him of action but soon enough, the popular comedian found himself in deep trouble after the BMC accused him to illegal constructions and defying environmental norms.
