The petition filed through Vidhii Partners said that around 2020-21, on account of political rivalries with Parab, several false and frivolous complaints and proceedings came to be initiated against Parab in respect of the land.
One such complaint led to the notice dated June 22, 2021 by the sub-divisional officer stating the structure is illegal and contrary to the laws and, hence, ought to be demolished.
The notice was challenged before a civil court which stayed the same.
In July 2021, BJP leader Kirit Somaiya approached the National Green Tribunal (NGT) claiming the commercial project was in violation of Coastal Regulation Zone (CRZ) norm.
He sought its demolition as well as initiation of criminal proceedings against Parab and others and the plea is still pending, it was pointed out.
