MUMBAI: An FIR was filed against Rishi Kapoor at the Khar police station in Mumbai, for ‘illegally’ cutting a tree, on the basis of a complaint filed by the Brihan mumbai Municipal Corporation.
Kapoor had taken permission from the BMC to trim the tree as it was hindering the construction work at the building he is constructing in place of his Pali Hill Bungalow, that he has demolished.
The FIR has also been filed against the contractor who Kapoor hired for the work. Kapoor had earlier claimed that the he was not aware of about the issues related to the tree-cutting as he had hired the contractor for the work.
Kapoor told, “I had taken all required permission to do so, which I have provided them to see. This is plain harassment from jealous neighbours which was expected.”
The matter will now be investigated by the police and necessary action will be taken according to it.
