The Bombay High Court on Friday asked an engineer working with Municipal Corporation of Greater Mumbai (MCGM) to remain present in the court and produce documents pertaining to construction carried out by actor Shahrukh Khan.
Khan has built a six-storey building behind his bungalow Mannat at Bandra seafront.
A Public Interest Litigation (PIL) filed by city-based NGO Bhrashtachar Nirmulan Sanghatana has alleged that it encroaches on proposed road in the development plan.
MCGM, as well as Khan's wife Gauri have denied these allegations.
However, as per the petitioner Manav Joshi, the balcony of the building extends over the road. The road itself is too narrow to allow fire tenders to pass, Joshi stated in an affidavit on Friday.
Therefore, division bench of Chief Justice Swatanter Kumar and Justice J P Devadhar on Friday directed the engineer of the Building Proposal department of the corporation to remain present on February 27 with the relevant documents.
