Sonu Sood who was long stuck in a legal battle with Bruhat Bengaluru Mahanagara Palike (BMC) has finally got relief from SC after it allowed the actor to withdraw plea in the illegal construction case. Sonu took to Twitter to share the news in which he wrote, “‘Peace is not the absence of war but the presence of justice’ – Harrison Ford. The hon’ble Supreme Court has finally given me a breath of fresh air and time to take corrective measures. The structure was always legal, despite it being coloured otherwise. I feel vindicated since I have always had utmost and complete faith in the judiciary, and have always strived to abide by the law. My sole endeavour has been to conduct my business in a fair manner, with all the requisite permissions and clearances as may be required in law.”
He added that he had been targeted by people with malignant intentions. The actor wrote, “Unfortunately, I have had to suffer at the hands of certain persons with nefarious designs, who were out to malign my image. My request to everyone is to not give in to the demands of such people, who masquerade as social activists, but are essentially not. May better sense prevail upon them. My special thanks goes out to the team at Lawmen & White. Its partners, Adv. Ujjawal Anand Sharma, Adv. Prashant Sivarajan & adv. D.Kumanan, have been a constant source of support. In the end, as always, justice prevails.”
Last year, the Dabangg star came under the radar of BMC over converting his six storey building in Juhu to a hotel without taking the requisite permission. However, Sood quashed the claims and challenged the decision in the court. The Messiah of migrants had offered this very building to be turned into a quarantine centre for health care workers.
