Bombay High Court has dismissed actor Sonu Sood's petition challenging BMC notice on illegal construction at his residence, reported ANI.

Bollywood actor Sonu Sood had approached the Bombay High Court, challenging a notice issued against him by the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) for allegedly carrying out structural changes to a residential building in suburban Juhu without permission.

The petition has sought that the court quashes and set aside the notice issued by the BMC in October last year, and an interim relief of no coercive action to be initiated against the actor.

Last year, after receiving the notice from the BMC, the actor approached a civil court but failed to get relief following which he filed an appeal in the high court.

The BMC in December had filed a complaint at the Juhu police station, seeking an FIR to be lodged against Sood for allegedly converting the residential building into a hotel without permission.

The complaint letter was sent to the police after the BMC inspected the building and found that Sood had allegedly not complied with the requisitions and was continuing unauthorised construction even after the notice was served to him in October last year.

Sood, who is known for his roles in films like "Dabangg", "Jodha Akbar" and "Simmba", came into the spotlight last year for his philanthropy work in helping migrants reach their homes during the COVID-19 lockdown.
