The Bombay High Court today dismissed an appeal and an interim application filed by Bollywood actor Sonu Sood against a BMC notice over alleged illegal construction carried out by him at his residential building in Juhu area of Mumbai.
Justice Prithviraj Chavan, while dismissing the actor's appeal and application, said, "Law helps only those who are diligent." Mr Sood's lawyer Amogh Singh sought a time of 10 weeks to comply with the notice issued by the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) in October last year, and requested the high court to direct the civic body to not initiate demolition action. The court, however, refused and said the actor had ample opportunity in the past and if required, he could approach the civic body. "The ball is now in the office of the BMC...you (Sonu Sood) may approach them," Justice Chavan said. "You (Sonu Sood) are too late. You had ample opportunity," the judge added.
