The Bombay High Court has extended the hearing date of Sonu’s interest appeal against the notice of the Brihannumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC). Earlier, the hearing was scheduled for Monday. But now the court will hold a hearing on January 13. On Monday, a single bench of Justice Prithviraj Chandan directed BMC not to take any action against the interest till January 13.
Sonu is accused of building a residential hotel
BMC has accused Sonu of converting a 6-storey residential building into a hotel. A complaint has also been lodged with the Juhu police station in this regard. Singh, counsel for Sonu, said, “The applicant (interest) has not made any changes in the building seeking the permission of the BMC. Only these changes have been approved under the Maharashtra Regional and Town Planning (MRTP) Act.”
BMC alleges that the actor turned the Shakti Sagar building on Mumbai’s AB Nair Road into an unlicensed hotel. Energy Sea is a residential building and cannot be used commercially. The actor has been accused of enlarging parts of the building, making changes to the map and usage. According to the complaint, Sonu continued to build illegally even after giving interest notice.
This application was made last week
According to BMC officials, Sonu had applied to the Mumbai court against the interest notice, but from there he could not get interim relief. The court granted him three weeks to appeal to the High Court. He had approached the High Court last week through his lawyer DP Singh. In his plea, he said no illegal or unauthorized construction work had been done on the six-storey Shakti Sagar building.
