Mumbai, 21/1 (AO Bureau): The Bombay High Court has refused to grant relief to actor Sonu Sood over the alleged illegal construction case in Mumbai. Hearing the petition of Sonu Sood, Justice Prithviraj Chavan said, “The ball is now in the court of Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC).” Only BMC will take a decision in this matter. Please tell that Sonu Sood had asked the court for a time of at least 10 weeks on the basis of BMC’s order, on which the court commented – You are too late. You had enough time for all this. The law also helps those who are hardworking.
Explain that during the hearing on 13 January, BMC had described Sood as a “habitual criminal”. The municipality had said in court that Sonu Sood has been continuously breaking the rules in the case of illegal construction. In fact, during the lockdown, Sonu Sood allegedly made a structural change in the residential building in suburban Juhu without permission. After this, BMC has issued a notice to them. Sonu filed a petition in the Bombay High Court against BMC’s notice. Sonu Sood, in his petition filed last week through lawyer DP Singh, said that he has not done any illegal construction in the six-story Shakti Sagar building.
