MANNAT In Illegal

Shahruk Khan who has been hitting headlines for all the wrong reasons this year seems to have got tangled in yet another controversy. This time it’s no gossip or hearsay, it’s purely legal this time around and concerns his ‘Mannat’.
The Mumbai High Court on Thursday issued a notice to King Khan over the charges of illegal construction in his palatial bungalow Mannat. The court has also asked the state government and the Bombay Municipal Corporation to explain on what grounds did they allow the alleged illegal construction.
This is not the first time that the actor’s house is in trouble. In the past too several complaints have been filed against King Khan’s royal estate.
This time round, however, the house is facing the heat over the construction of a seven-storied building in the backyard. A social worker had filed a filed a PIL last month, before the Bombay High Court against the alleged illegal construction.
The PIL also alleged that the actor has further violated the Coastal Regulation Zone (CRZ) Notification, 1991, by getting his land classified in the relatively liberal CRZI, when, according to the petition, the plot was in the highly restrictive CRZ-II classification.
The work on the bungalow is also said to be in violation with the statutory Heritage Regulations, which regulate that the new building has to be of the same height as that of the old building and that it should have architectural attributes in harmony with the old structure.
