The Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) on Friday filed a reply in the Bombay High Court (HC) to a petition by Bollywood Actress Kangana Ranaut seeking damages worth ₹2 crores. 

Kangana Ranaut recently amended her petition before the Bombay HC and sought to claim ₹2 crores as damages from BMC for demolition a portion of her office in Pali Hill, Bandra. 

The amended plea calls the act of demolition as “illegal” and says that the civic body demolished 40 per cent of the office including valuable property. It sought urgent relief from the court to make the property “capable of use” after the demolition. 

However, the BMC has filed an affidavit opposition Kangana’s plea challenging the demolition of her office and seeking damages worth ₹2 crores. Labelling the petition as “abuse of the process of law”, the civic body said that Kangana’s petition should be dismissed with costs. 

On September 9, Kangana had filed a petition through her lawyer Rizwan Siddiqui seeking a stay on the BMC’s notice. The BMC had demolished Kangana’s office citing illegal structure violations. However, the Bombay HC had stayed the demolition process. 

However, the affidavit filed by the BMC says that the plaintiff wasn’t liable for any relief. “The plaintiff approached the court with unclean hands and has suppressed true facts,” the civic body said. 

The BMC also alleged that Ranaut had not taken permission before making alterations to her property. The next hearing of the case will be on September 22.
