Abhay Dinkar Jagtap, a sub-engineer from the BMC’s P-South Ward office, is the complainant in the case. Sharma and Khan, who own flats in the DLH Enclave in Goregaon, have been served notices for illegal constructions within the building. The BMC has found violations in 15 flats in the building.
After levelling allegations against a BMC official, Sharma was at the receiving end of activists and political parties as the civic body’s records indicated that the K West ward office had carried out demolition of illegal extensions atop and adjacent to his bungalow in Versova. Officials claimed these extensions had led to a portion of mangroves abutting the bungalow being destroyed.
