Bombay High Court has stayed BMC’s demolition at actress Kangana Ranaut’s property, and has asked the civic body to file reply on actor’s petition. The hearing of the matter will continue tomorrow
Ranaut approached the Bombay High Court challenging the notice issued by the Mumbai civic body for ‘illegal construction’ at her bungalow here, and sought a stay on the demolition process.
The Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation had demolished “illegal alterations” at the Bandra bungalow of Ranaut, a civic official said. Ranaut’s recent remark comparing Mumbai to Pakistan- occupied-Kashmir (PoK) has drawn the ire of the ruling Shiv Sena which also controls the BMC.
The 33-year-old actor, who is scheduled to reach here later in the day, has alleged that the Maharashtra government is targeting her because of her fight with the Shiv Sena. The BMC on Tuesday pasted a stop-work notice at the actor’s bungalow at Pali Hill in suburban Bandra.
Tell Kangana to keep the faith. We are with her in this struggle.
