HC hears PIL against Shahrukh bungalow

Posted by jahanzaibmemon on December 23, 2007

Mumbai, Dec 20: The Municipal Corporation of Greater Mumbai (MCGM) today told the Bombay High Court that there has been no deletion of the proposed road, bordering actor Shahrukh Khan’s bungalow at Bandra waterfront here, from its plan.

Shahrukh had built a six-storey building behind his bungalow ‘Mannat’. A PIL filed by city-based NGO, Bhrashtachar Nirmulan Sanghatana, has alleged that it encroaches on the proposed road in the development plan.

The road, as per the development plan, should be 9.15 metres wide, but the petitioners’ lawyer Shakuntala Joshi said it has shrunk to six metres.

To facilitate this, changes were made in the plan without following proper procedure, she alleged.

The MCGM, in its affidavit, said there was a proposal to delete the ‘roadline’ and added that though it has been approved by the department concerned, the corporation has not given its sanction as yet.

The affidavit states the “roadline is still existing and is not deleted.” Outside the court Joshi said the affidavit runs contrary to the situation on the ground. “Earlier, affidavit filed by Gauri Khan, Shahrukh’s wife, too states that roadline has been changed. We will point out the contradiction at the next hearing,” she said.

A division bench of Chief Justice Swatanter Kumar and Justice J P Deodhar adjourned the hearing till January 10. (Agencies)
