After Daler Mehndi, now Bollywood singer Mika in legal row

Mika Singh
Chandigarh, March 29: After famous Punjabi pop star Daler Mehndi, now his younger brother and Bollywood singer Mika has landed in a legal soup.

Gurgaon district administration on Thursday, March 28 sealed several illegal farmhouses among which one farmhouse in village Roz Ka Gujjar owned by the Bollywood singer.

Following reports that several farmhouses in the region were illegally running small tourism and other commercial activities, the state government issued notice to seal the places.

A state government spokesperson was quoted as saying, "As per the orders of Deputy Commissioner PC Meena, a team of local officers, including SDM (sub-divisional magistrate), Gurgaon South, Vivek Kalia, District Town Planner Anil Dabas, Divisional Forest Officer Ranjeeta, officials of the revenue department and Haryana State Pollution Control Board (HSPCB) with the help of police inspected the farm houses. On finding commercial activities there, these farm houses were sealed."

According to sources, the deputy commissioner also had asked the district officials to inspect the Roz ka Gujjar village area in Sohna tehsil of the district to clarify reports of illegal activities by the farmhouses.

Objection to run commercial activities in the area was aised by the National Green Tribunal as 75 percent of the region falls under forest area.

Earlier in Feb 2013, the district authorities had recovered 10 acres of land from Mika's elder brother singer Daler Mehndi.

The court of the SDM at Sohna in Haryana had served Daler a 15-day notice for another 100 acres of land in his possession.

The court restored the possession of 10 acres land under occupation of the singer to the Sohna town municipal committee.

Speaking about the legal notice served to the owners of the farmhouses, a spokesperson said, "In the light of tourism activities going on in the area, which is a non-forestry activity, notices were issued and the owners were asked to stop commercial activities."
