HC raps BMC, orders compensation for demolition at Kangana's bungalow

kangana-ranaut

MUMBAI: A division bench comprising Justices S J Kathawalla and R I Chagla said that Kangana Ranaut can take steps to get regularised her property and make it habitable. The court directed that if Ranaut makes an application for getting her building plans approved, it would be decided within four weeks.

Reserving its order on the quantum of compensation payable to the actress, the court appointed a valuer to decide on the compensation amount.

The court said that the BMC proceeded on "wrongful grounds" in the case that was against the citizens' rights, a malice in law and reactionary in nature.

Mumbai Mayor Kishori Pednekar said that she would comment after consulting the BMC Legal Department but declined to say whether it would challenge the High Court ruling in the Supreme Court.

The opposition Bharatiya Janata Party leaders like Kirit Somaiya and Ram Kadam welcomed the court verdict and slammed the BMC, Municipal Commissioner IS Chahal, Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray and Maha Vikas Aghadi government, saying it was a big blow to them and demanded the Mayor's resignation.

A BMC team had undertaken partial demolition at Ranaut's bungalow on September 9, which sparked off massive political furore after which she moved the Bombay HC to challenge the civic body's move, terming it vendetta.
