Justice Prithviraj Chavan observed that in the past two years, the couple continued carrying out “illegal additions and alterations” to the six-storey building they intended to convert into a residential hotel, and instead re-erected portions demolished by the BMC. The court was particularly peeved by the manner in which an earlier demolition order issued by the civic body was concealed from the court. “It can be seen that nothing has been disclosed by the appellants(Sood) in the plaint which, in normal course, they ought to have disclosed all the facts in respect of the suit building and the earlier notice, their reply as well as conclusion drawn by the Authority and an order which came to be passed in accordance with section 354 (A) of the M.M.C Act. Since the order dated 4th February, 2020(of demolition) has not been challenged, it has attained finality.” The Court noted how Sood, apprehended action from the BMC in 2018, and therefore, in a “deceitful manner,” informed them about his application for change of user- from residential to commercial- a month in advance. “This itself is sufficient to refuse the relief of temporary injunction, since the appellants have not approached the Court with clean hands and it is apparent that their intention was mala fide. The respondents had demolished the offending structure on 12th November, 2018 for the first time.” Justice Chavan rejected Sood’s defence taken under section 43 of the MRTP Act that he did not require permission for repairs especially since it is an admitted fact that the couple wanted to convert the building into a residential hotel. “It is pertinent to note that the appellants cannot take aid of section 43 by contending that no such permission is necessary for the simple reason that the proviso to section 43 contemplates that such permission is not necessary for carrying out a work of maintenance/ improvement… This is significant in the light of the fact that the appellants themselves have come with a case that they want to convert the offending structure into a residential hotel.” The couple has now approached the Supreme Court against the Bombay High Court’s order dated January 21, 2021. The notice was issued in October, 2020 under section 53 of the MRTP Act, with regard to alterations made to a six- storey residential building named Shakti Sagar, in Juhu. In a suit filed in the City Civil Court, in November 2020, Sood challenged the notice and sought temporary relief from demolition. The actor was denied interim relief by the Court. Sood then approached the Bombay High Court which also denied relief via the above order.

Many thanks to @PennDOTNews @PAStatePolice @PANationalGuard and local Fire & Rescue #jonasblizzard pic.twitter.com/m3MGaGWYyQ— Franciscan U (@FranciscanU) January 24, 2016State Police leaders at the scene relayed some incredible stories of individual and collective bravery and service. From their perspective and mine, those troopers on the scene went above and beyond the call of duty – just like they have time and again.Some troopers were outside of their vehicles for over 17 hours – even as the temperature dropped to well-below zero at times. One trooper took it upon himself to commandeer a front end loader and directed the operator to make a path through the backlog so they could get to passenger vehicles, work with the National Guard to dig them out and push them out and onto the road to [email protected] @PA_Turnpike @PAStatePolice @PennDOTNews @PANationalGuard Thank you from a NE Mom for helping our kids on MM 127 #MFL2016— SteveLisaMiller (@slkmbhusker) January 24, 2016Along the backlog, troopers carried pets and even a baby out of cars, through snow and over barriers, to get them into warm buses and to a shelter. Another trooper heard there was a driver with a diabetic condition in the backlog. The trooper gave them his lunch he packed earlier in the day before work. He then put a flare out and marked the driver’s location so they could be checked on throughout the incident.Shoutout to Trooper Hophey of @PAStatePolice for going out of his way to help us out of the snow near New Baltimore on the PA turnpike— Joshua Herman (@TheHermanator91) January 23, 2016The Captain of the local troop said that in his more than 26 years with the department, these were the worst conditions he ever witnessed his members having to work in, especially for so long. He said he never heard one complaint about the cold or long hours, and his troopers never slowed down.I know he is proud of his troopers and I could not be more proud myself. The State Police’s Call to Honor, includes the promise:“It is also my duty to be of service to anyone who may be in danger or distress, and at all times so conduct myself that the honor of the force may be upheld.”In situations like we saw on the Turnpike and across Pennsylvania during this blizzard, this call was tested and our troopers passed that test with the highest marks and I thank them for their selflessness and commitment to service.
