Comedian Kapil Sharma was booked by Mumbai police for allegedly violating green laws on Monday.

Following a complaint by Andheri Tehsil Office, an FIR was filed against Sharma under Environment Act by the Versova Police Station.

The actor had purchased a bungalow on MHADA Colony in the Four Bungalows area of Andheri west on November 7, last year.

According to the complaint, the debris from the repair works were dumped in the mangroves behind his newly purchased home and he is also accused of making illegal constructions near the mangroves.

“We have recorded complaint against the actor under Sp. LAC No.87/16 under section 15(1)(2) of the Environment Act,” police spokesperson DCP Ashok Dudhe said.

This is the second FIR against the actor lodged by a different police station since his controversial tweet to Prime Minister Narendra Modi about graft.

“I am paying Rs 15 crore income tax from last five years and still I have to pay Rs 5 lakh bribe to BMC office (every year) for making my office. Is this your ‘Achhe Din’,” Kapil had asked in a tweet to Modi.
