BMC officials said Sood had moved the city’s civil court against the notice sent by BMC in October last year, although he did not get any interim relief from the court.
Officials said the court gave Sood three weeks to appeal in the High Court. Three weeks have passed from the court, but they have not removed the unauthorized construction so far, so we lodged a complaint with the police under the MRTP Act.
