A First Information Report (FIR) was registered here against BJP MLA Ashish Shelar late Wednesday night over his allegedly objectionable remarks against Mumbai Mayor Kishori Pednekar, a police official said.

A case under sections 354 A (4) (making sexually coloured remark), and 509 (words or gestures insulting woman's modesty) of the IPC was registered against the BJP leader, the official said, adding that police will conduct further probe.
