HC stays BMC's demolition at Kangana’s property
MUMBAI [Maha Media]: The Bombay High Court on Wednesday stayed the demolition process initiated by the BMC for illegal construction at actor Kangana Ranaut''s bungalow here and sought to know why did the city civic body enter the property when the owner was not present.
Justice S J Kathawalla was hearing a petition filed by Ranaut challenging the notice issued by the BMC for illegal construction at her bungalow. The petition also sought a stay on the demolition process.
The court sought to know from BMC how it entered the premises and directed it to file an affidavit in response to the plea.
The court has posted the matter for hearing on Thursday.
The Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) on Wednesday undertook demolition of the illegal alterations at the Bandra bungalow of Ranaut.
Earlier on Tuesday, the BMC had pasted a notice on the office building at Pali Hill in Bandra.
Reacting to the BMC's action, Ms Ranaut, in a series of tweet, compared the BMC officials as "Babur and his army." "I am never wrong and my enemies prove again and again this is why my Mumbai is PoK now", the actress wrote on twitter.
Ranaut has been severely critical of the Maharashtra government and Mumbai police in handling of the Sushant Singh Rajput death case.
