The Bombay High Court has stayed the demolition order of the property of actor Kangana Ranaut by Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) for ‘illegal construction’.
The Bombay High Court asked BMC to reply to a petition filed by Kangana Ranaut. The matter will then be heard in court before the bench of justice SJ Kathawalla.
“We filed a petition this morning seeking urgent hearing. We have sought a stay on the demolition process by way of interim relief,” said Kangana Ranaut’s advocate Rizwan Siddiqui.
The Mumbai’s civic body on Wednesday demolished a part of ‘illegal alterations’ at the Bandra residence of Ranaut, said a civic official while speaking to reporters on the matter.
The actor shared photos of the officials from BMC demolishing parts of her Bandra residence and called it the “death of democracy”. “Pakistan…. #deathofdemocracy”, she tweeted.
Sharing another sets on photographs of the demolition on Twitter, Ranaut wrote “Babar and his army.”
Kangana Ranaut is on her way to Mumbai from Manali after she got into a war of words with Shiv Sena leader Sanjay Raut. Raut had warned Kangana against returning to Mumbai after she compared the city to Pakistan Occupied Kashmir.
