Kangana Ranaut Wins Against BMC
Indian High Court Provides Justice To Ranaut
Actress Kangana Ranaut is always in the news for some troublesome news or curveball that life has thrown her.
Recently BMC demolished Kangana Ranaut’s old family home that got a lot of attention. Kangana Ranaut sued BMC for acting without notice or handling the matter legally.
The Indian High Court ruled in Kangana’s favor and slammed BMC with fines and ordered compensation for “Queen” actress Kangana Ranaut.
The high court ruled that BMC acted with malice to demolish Kangana Ranaut bungalow, must pay for damages.
Kangana Ranaut’s legal team thanked the Bombay High Court on Friday as it quashed BMC and ruled an order for BMC, after it demolished her Mumbai bungalow. The HC held that she is entitled to compensation due to malafide action by the BMC.
“We make it clear that we do not approve the loose statements made by Kangana Ranaut. She should have exercised restraint but the subject matter is the demolition not her tweet,” said the Bombay High Court verdict.
“The action by BMC was with malice. The manner in which the demolition was carried out meant that it was sinister attempt to silence Kangana,” the division bench of Justice S J Kathawalla and Justice Riyaz Chagla passed the judgment after careful deliberation of nearly two months.
The court has also said that the damages of the demolition drive should be recovered from BMC and Kangana will apply to BMC for reconstruction of the area. Valuation of damages by an architect has to be completed within three months, said the court.
Kangana demanded Rs 2 crore compensation from BMC for the illegal demolition of her bungalow.
