Mumbai, Feb 6: Days after BJP MP Poonam Mahajan's letter, Municipal Commissioner Sitaram Kunte on Thursday, Feb 5 issued an order to serve notice to Shahrukh Khan (SRK) in connection with the controversial ramp adjacent to his bungalow Mannat at Bandra, Mumbai.
According to sources, Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) will serve the notice to the Bollywood superstar under Section 299 of the MCGM Act, 1888. BMC will also give a 7-day deadline to demolish the ramp.
Speaking to media, a senior officer was quoted as saying, "In case of non-compliance, BMC will undertake the demolition."
The BMC's decision of sending notice to Khan came as an aftereffect of a letter sent by Mahajan, the MP from Mumbai North Central.
Mahajan recently asked BMC to take action against the ramp which is used to park the vanity van of the actor. In her letter to BMC, the MP mentioned about complaints by residents who face trouble for the ramp. [Mumbai: Now BJP MP Poonam Mahajan holds bat against Shahrukh Khan]
Shahrukh Khan has been accused of constructing the ramp illegally. Mahajan in her letter mentioned that an illegal ramp has been constructed by a bungalow owner in Bandra, hence, refrained from taking the names of Khan or Mannat.
According to sources, several residents, who face problem for the ramp, met Mahajan and submitted documents which proved the road belongs to the government and should be handed over to the public for use. [Mumbai Shocker: Shahrukh Khan gets kicked over his Mannat, faces protest]
Earlier many people protested outside Mannat in 2014. The protesters had raised demand to demolish the controversial ramp which barred people to enter a church.
Residents allege that the controversial ramp stands on public property and blocks access to the stairs that lead to Mount Mary Church from Bandstand.
