Adding to the woes of stand-up comedian and television personality Kapil Sharma, who raised allegations of corruption against Mumbai’s civic body on Twitter last week, activist Santosh Daundkar filed a criminal case against him in the metropolitan magistrate’s court in Andheri Wednesday. Apart from destruction of mangroves, Daundkar has accused Sharma of withholding information about the civic official who allegedly demanded a bribe from him.

While Sharma took to Twitter last week to express his frustration, the tide has since turned against the actor after documents revealed that he had constructed unauthorised extensions in his single-storey bungalow in Versova. Apart from being criticised by most political parties, including the Congress, the MNS, the Samajwadi Party and even the BJP, blows continued to rain on Sharma after a site inspection carried out by forest department officials on Monday revealed that mangroves behind his house in Versova had also been destroyed.

The charges include Section 187 of IPC, which pertains to failure to assist a public servant. Other charges include Section 15 of Environment Protection Act 1986, raising allegations of destruction of mangroves, as well as Section 52 of the Maharashtra Regional and Town Planning Act for changing land use. Despite several attempts, Sharma couldn’t be reached for comment.

      Typical revenge politics by BJP. By this, one is not turning a blind eye to Sharma's irregularity.

        This is ridiculous!lt;br/gt;Kapil sharma did right thing in wrong way. If he pay more bribe these officials will allow him to use more land. Kapil can easily do this; but he raised his hands against corruption. Shame on the people who are agaist him.
