The municipal corporation, on Monday, demolished a structure erected by Congress Member of Legislative Assembly Jagannath Shetty, inside a plot marked as a playground.

Officials from the local civic ward demolished an under-construction podium in Dalvi ground near Jain Society in Sion.

The civic officials said that Shetty, had last week, sought permission for the construction of the podium. However, the ward office denied it saying that the plot was a playground and any construction on it is not permissible.

The Bombay high court has asked the civic body to demolish all illegal structures across the city. The municipal commissioner, too, had said the same last week.

Sanjay Kurhade, assistant municipal commissioner, F-North ward said, “The construction had just begun and we found some materials kept there.”

Local children play on the ground and a school in the vicinity also uses it for its activities. Shetty denied knowledge of the incident. “I do not know anything about this,” he said and disconnected the phone.

Meanwhile, six residential structures and one ground plus one chawl in Pascalwadi and Patelwadi in Madh-Marve area of Malad were demolished on Tuesday.

These structures were in the No-Development Zone and were razed using civic machinery.

Three engineers, supervisory and the local police were roped in for the drive. The structures were occupying more than 2,000 sq ft areas.
