In a statement, Kangana Ranaut compared Mumbai to Pakistan-occupied Kashmir. Then the whole debate started.
- On Monday, the High Court accepted the submissions of both the parties.
- On September 9, the BMC looted Kangna’s office
The controversy in the Bombay High Court in the case of vandalism of the office of the Greater Mumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) Kangana Ranaut has come to an end. On Monday, a bench of Justice SJ Kathawala and Justice RI Chagla accepted the written plea of both the parties. After hearing the arguments, the court reserved its verdict.
What is the appeal of Kangana Ranaut?
Kangana Ranaut’s lawyer Birendra Saraf alleged in the petition that BMC had vandalized the system in his bungalow. He said that Kangana had made remarks against the Mumbai police, after which the Shiv Sena government in Maharashtra took action against him.
The actress had requested the court to declare the demolition of a part of her building illegal and ordered BMC to pay Rs two crore as her loss.
What did BMC say in defense?
The BMC has denied the move in a written affidavit of hatred and personal revenge. BMC further said that Kangana’s demand for compensation of Rs 200 crore from BMC for partially demolishing the bungalow was not considered.
The bungalow was 40 percent demolished
On September 6, BMC pasted the notice at Kangna’s office and asked for a reply within 24 hours regarding the illegal construction. But the day after Kangana arrived in Mumbai, a crackdown started in her office.
The actress’ lawyer had approached the High Court to stop the move. However, 40 percent of the bungalows had already been demolished by the time the court order came. It has many valuable resources including chandeliers, sofas and rare patterns.
