Mumbai: Bollywood actor and philanthropist Sonu Sood has been accused of allegedly converting a residential building into a hotel. The Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) filed a complaint against him with the Mumbai Police on January 4, under the Maharashtra Region and Town Planning (MRTP) Act, Hindustan Times (HT) reported.
Vishwas Mote, the assistant municipal commissioner of BMC’s K west ward, was quoted as saying, “We have filed a complaint against Sonu Sood for converting a residential building into a hotel on January 4. We are coordinating with the Mumbai Police for the investigation.”
BMC had reportedly issued a notice to Sood regarding the matter earlier. Sood, in October, had moved the city civil court against the notice, the report added.
“A First Information Report, however, has not been registered yet. The BMC engineer concerned should personally approach us and point out structural changes or any violations in his for the FIR,” said Assistant Commissioner of Police Suhas Raikar.
Sood’s spokesperson said that an official statement will be issued in the matter soon. Sood was not available for comment, the report added further.
