The Khar police recently registered FIR against actor Rishi Kapoor for trimming a tree more than what was permitted and chopping off its branches, based on a Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) complaint. The Zonal DCP confirmed that the actor was first handed an NC and was warned to respond to the NC, failing that they would have to register an FIR against him.
The police have also registered an FIR against the contractor, appointed by Rishi Kapoor, under Section 8, read with Section 21, of the Maharashtra Protection and Prevention of Tree Act.
Bur Rishi Kapoor’s manager informs, “There is nothing, these stories are baseless. We have all the permissions, but yes we trimmed a tree a little too much, but we were unaware. It is the contractor’s mistake. We are taking care of the legalities, it is not a serious crime.”
