Mumbai's iconic ice cream parlour, K Rustom, has lost its 22-year-old case against its landlord, the Cricket Club of India (CCI), in the Court of Small Causes.


However, the store has decided to continue its fight till the end. The daughter of K Rustom (name witheld), has filed an appeal at the Court of Small Causes.The CCI approached her on Tuesday to negotiate, but she says talks are difficult as the committee keeps changing every eight years.

K Rustom was the first tenant of the reclaimed land from Marine Drive to Churchgate. He bought the property at the rate of 1 Rs per square yard. The land is owned by the government but upon suggestion from Lord Brabourne, it was decided to use the space for CCI.The CCI told the court that they “need” the space (the entire block).
