Kangana's office demolition case: Bombay HC's judgment on November 27
The Bombay High Court will give its verdict on Bollywood actor Kangana Ranaut's office demolition case against the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) on November 27, according to reports. Kangana's office was demolished in September. The High Court had last month reserved its order in the matter. Here are more details on this.
In September, BMC razed a part of Kangana's newly-built office in Pali Hill citing illegal constructions. The move came when the actor was involved in a war-of-words with the Shiv Sena and the Maharashtra government. The demolition was stopped after she approached the court. The Bombay HC had earlier reserved its order in the matter on October 5.
Kangana has been critical of the Maharashtra government and Mumbai Police over their handling of actor Sushant Singh Rajput's death case. The rift further escalated after the actor compared Mumbai with the Pakistan-occupied Kashmir region. Shiv Sena leaders like Sanjay Raut and others slammed her for it. However, she was provided Y-level security by the Home Ministry.
Days after her office was demolished by the BMC, the 33-year-old actor met Maharashtra Governor BS Koshyari and told him about the "unjust treatment" she had received. "I met Governor Koshyari and told him about unjust treatment I have received. I hope justice will be given to me so that the faith of all citizens including young girls, is restored."
Kangana has been involved in a number of legal disputes this year. Last month, an FIR was filed against the actor and her sister Rangoli Chandel in Mumbai by casting director Munawwar Ali Sayyed. Both have been asked thrice by the police to appear for interrogation, but they failed to appear. They recently asked the Bombay HC to cancel the FIR filed against them.
