THE Bombay High Court on Thursday stayed the FIR lodged against comedian Kapil Sharma over unauthorised structures allegedly constructed by him at his flat in suburban Goregaon here and directed the BMC to resolve the dispute within five weeks.

A division bench of Justices N H Patil and M S Karnik was hearing petitions filed by Sharma and Bollywood actor Irrfan Khan challenging notices issued to them by the civic body in April and September 2016 directing them to demolish illegal alterations made by them in their flats in ‘DLH Enclave’, a 18-storeyed residential building at Goregaon without requisite permissions. The BMC on Thursday informed the court that after consultation with legal experts, it has decided to withdraw the notices.
