Sonu Sood has moved the Supreme Court against the Bombay High Court order in which it denied giving him relief against the BMC notice on illegal construction at his building.
Sonu Sood has moved Supreme Court seeking a stay on the notice issued under the MRTP Act.
In a plea filed through advocates Ujjwal Anand Sharma and D Kumanan, Sonu Sood has claimed that the construction on his bungalow was granted partial approval by the BMC commissioner and is awaiting clearance from the Mumbai coastal regulation zone authority.
Sonu Sood has argued that since partial clearances have been granted, the notice should not have been issued. The high court had earlier rejected his arguments.
Sood’s lawyer had sought 10 weeks to comply with the notice issued by the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) in October last year, and requested Bombay High Court to direct the civic body not to initiate demolition action.
The high court, however, refused and said Sonu Sood had ample opportunity in the past and if required, he could approach the civic body.
Sonu Sood had approached the high court earlier this month challenging an order of a city civil court at Dindoshi that had dismissed his suit against the BMC’s notice issued over the alleged illegal construction carried out by him.
The actor in the high court interim application had sought an order restraining the BMC from taking any coercive action against his residential property in Juhu area.
