Bombay HC dismisses Sonu Sood's appeal against BMC notice over illegal construction

The Bombay High Court on Thursday, 21 January dismissed an appeal and interim application filed by Bollywood actor Sonu Sood against a BMC notice over alleged illegal construction carried out by him at his residential building in suburban Juhu.

Justice Prithviraj Chavan said the court was dismissing the appeal and application.

Sood's lawyer Amogh Singh sought a time of 10 weeks to comply with the notice issued by the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) and requested the court to direct the civic body to not initiate demolition action.

The court, however, refused and said the actor had ample opportunity in the past.

Sood approached the high court earlier this month, challenging an order of a city civil court that dismissed his suit against the BMC's notice over the alleged illegal construction carried out by him.

The actor, in an interim application, had sought an order from the high court restraining the BMC from taking any coercive action against his residential property in Juhu area.

As per the BMC, Sood had carried out structural changes in the six-storey residential building Shakti Sagar and converted it into a hotel without taking requisite permissions.
