BMC lodges police complaint against Sonu Sood for converting residential building into a hotel
Bhubaneswar: Actor Sonu Sood, who was known to help the needy during the lockdown, has landed in trouble as Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) lodged a complaint against them at Juhu Police Station on charges of converting a 6-storey residential building into a hotel.
As per the reports, the actor failed to take the civic body’s permission to run the residential building as a commercial hotel. The building is located in the city’s plush suburban area Juhu.
In the complaint given by BMC, it has been said that Sonu Sood has converted the Shakti Sagar Building on AB Nair Road in Mumbai into a hotel without permission. Shakti Sagar is a residential building and cannot be used commercially. It is punishable under section 7 of the Maharashtra Region and Town Planning Act. The BMC has accused Sonu Sood of increasing the portion of the building, changing the map and changing the usage.
Sonu Sood has also reacted to this matter. He said that permission was taken from BMC for user change of land and now waiting for approval from Maharashtra Coastal Zone Management Authority. He has denied BMC’s charge of ignoring the rules.
Sonu Sood became a social media hero in 2020 after the actor came forward and helped thousands of migrants reach back home.
