Kangana filed a petition in September 2020
In September 2020, when Kangana came into controversy after comparing Mumbai to Pakistan-occupied Kashmir (POK), the Brihanmumbai Metropolitan Municipality (BMC) ransacked her office claiming illegal construction. After this, the actress had filed a petition in the civil court, denouncing the vandalism done by the civic body and demanded a ban on such action.
What did the civil court say in its decision
Judge LS Chavan said in his judgment that Kangana has merged 3 flats on the fifth floor of the 16-storey building. During this time, he has converted the floor space area index (FSI) into habitable space by covering the compact area, duct area and common passage. This is a violation of the rules of the building plan.
Kangana has 6 weeks
The court also said in its judgment that no further investigation is needed in this case. Also, giving 6 weeks time to Kangana has said that if she wants, she can knock the door of Bombay High Court against this order.
