Mumbai, March 29: The Bombay High Court on Tuesday disposed off a petition after the Maharashtra government today informed the court that it has withdrawn the demolition order issued for the bungalow of union minister Narayan Rane situated in Juhu area of the city’s suburb. Arguing before the Division bench consisting of Justice AA Sayed and MS Karnik, state advocate general Ashutosh Kumbhakoni informed the court that the state of Maharashtra has withdrawn the demolition order against the bungalow belonging to union Minister Narayan Rane. He also said that “reserving its right to take requisite action in future, the Maharashtra government had decided to withdraw the March 21 communication, or order” on demolition of parts of Rane’s Juhu bungalow. Kumbhkoni made the statement in response to a petition filed by Rane seeking quashing of the Bombay Municipal Corporation notice under Section 488 of Mumbai Municipal Corporation (MMC) Act, 1888, directing the members of Rane family to remove alleged illegal constructions in their Adish Bungalow or the same would be demolished by the authorities. The statement was recorded by the bench and later the court disposed the plea.
