“We have called a joint meeting of the BMC, MHADA, police officials and the state’s mangrove cell next week, to get a status update on the work done by the concerned departments after we filed the FIR. The police will be asked if the chargesheet has been filed in the case. Also, the future steps that need to be taken on illegal constructions will be discussed,” Kushwah said.
Meanwhile, social activist Abdul Choudhary, who had earlier written to the Maharashtra Coastal Zone Management Authority (MCZMA), asking it to initiate steps to demolish the structures, said that he has shared detailed evidence of the illegal constructions and extensions in Aram Nagar area (of Versova). “If the demolition action is not started soon, we will approach the Bombay High Court for justice,” Choudhary said.
