After the famous controversy happened earlier with Indian Actress Kangana Ranaut The Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation has filed FIR against India’s hero Sonu Sood for allegedly converting a six-storey residential building in Juhu into a hotel without receiving permission from the civic body.
The BMC has filed a police complaint against Sood on January 4, in which it said he had converted a residential building named Shakti Sagar on Juhu’s AB Nair Road into a hotel without change of user permissions.
According to the report, the Mumbai civic body has asked the Juhu police to take cognizance of the offence committed by the actor under the Maharashtra Region and town Planning (MRTP) Act citing unauthorized additions, alterations and change of user.
The actor has however, said that there are no irregulations. He had BMC permissions for change of user and was only waiting for a clearance from the Maharashtra Coastal Zone Management Authority.
In October 2020, Sonu Sood moved the city civil court against a notice sent by the BMC, but he did not get any interim relief, the report stated citing officials. The court had given Sood three weeks’ time to appeal in high court. The time passed but he did not restore the alterations and additions as per the approved plan, a civic official told. Therefore, the BMC has filed a police complaint to register an FIR under the MRTP Act, the official added.
