In the column for immovable assets, Sharma did not declare any assets of his own.
His wife Swikriti owns agricultural land valued Rs 6.21 crore, commercial building worth Rs 12 crore and residential building Rs 2.15 crore, adding up to Rs 20.37 crore in total.
In 2018-19, Sharma showed his income at Rs 9.83 lakh, and his wife's income at Rs 41.63 lakh.
Apart from Sharma, two other former police officers who are in the fray for October 21 polls are Shamsher Khan Pathan and Gautam Gaikwad, both of whom retired as assistant commissioners of police.
Pathan and his spouse's assets are worth Rs 5.17 crore, as per his affidavit. He is contesting from Mumbadevi constituency in Mumbai on the ticket of Prakash Ambedkar-led Vanchit Bahujan Aghadi.
