Mumbai, Apr 6 (PTI) The Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) on Wednesday issued notices to a residential building in suburban Santacruz after it found several illegalities, including alleged unauthorised construction in former Mumbai BJP youth wing president Mohit Kamboj’s flats located there during its inspection last month.
