Bombay High Court resumes hearing of Kangana Ranaut's plea against BMC's demolition drive

Kangana Ranaut had approached the Bombay High Court after the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation carried out a demolition drive at her Pali Hill office on September 9. The High Court resumed the hearing today, wherein the Bench stated, “In our first order itself we have said if they acted with such swiftness Bombay would be a better place.” Citing ‘illegal construction’ in their notice to the actress, the BMC had razed down parts of her property and the actress is now claiming damages for the same.

Due to the demolition, Kangana reportedly faced damage of valuables for which she is seeking compensation. In her plea, Kangana had urged the court to declare the BMC’s action as ‘illegal’ and that the civic body should pay her Rs 2 crore in damages.
