Bombay HC allows Sanjay Raut to be added as party in Kangana Ranaut’s Case

Bombay HC Sanjay Raut Kangana Ranaut

Parts of actress Kangana Ranaut’s office- cum-bungalow were demolished by Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation in her absence.

She, on September 9, filed a petition in Bombay High Court alleging to add Rajya Sabha MP and Shiv Sena spokesperson, Sanjay Raut, as a party to the proceedings of her plea, which challenges the demolition of her house.

Kangana claimed that the demolition was mala fide as she had an argument with Sanjay Raut and he took the matter politically. There was also a video clip wherein Raut abused Kangana. She believed that the demolition was made just to intimidate her.

AGP Jyoti Chavan took the stand for state and argued that the state has nothing to do with this case and was called before the court as a party through the Home Department. 

The Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation argued that the petition of Kangana should not be entertained as she made “illegal alterations” to the property without the permission of civic bodies and claimed that she should be asked to pay extra costs.

After hearing both the pleas, Justice Kathawalla asked both the parties to address the court.

The court put a stay on the demolition process and said that the civic body had no right to enter any property when the owner was not present. It also allowed Rajya Sabha MP, Shiv Sena Chief Spokesperson Sanjay Raut, and Bhagyawant Late Designated Officer, H West Ward to be added as a party in the case.

The court left the matter to be heard on September 23, 2020, at 11:30 am.
