Actor Shah Rukh Khan had to pay Rs 1.93 lakh to Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) as demolition charges in a case dating back to March 2015.
According to a Right to Information (RTI) reply petitioned by activist Anil Galgali, the actor was asked to pay for the illegal ramp demolished by the BMC outside his house Mannat in 2015. Last year, the residents in the surrounding area had accused the actor of encroaching public space, as the ramp obstructed movement to the Mount Mary Basilica during the annual Bandra fair.
The actor allegedly used the ramp for parking his vanity van. On February 14, 2015, BMC officials brought down the ramp amid heavy police protection.
Following the demolition, on March 5, the actor was asked to foot the bill of Rs 1.93 lakh within seven days or face action under the Mumbai Municipal Corporation Act (MMC), 1888, Galgali said.
BMC received the payment from the actor on March 11, the RTI query reveals.
