Sonu Sood, giving a clarification on the same revealed to the daily, “I have taken approval for change of user from the BMC. It was subject to the approval of the Maharashtra Coastal Zone Management Authority. This permission hasn’t come due to COVID-19. There are no irregularities. I always abide by the law. This hotel was used to house COVID -19 warriors during the pandemic. If permissions don’t come, I will restore it back to a residential structure. I am appealing against the BMC’s complaint in the Bombay HC.” Abhishek Trimukhe, DCP, Zone 9, stated after carrying out preliminary investigation by the police, an FIR would later be registered.
