Salman Khan seems to have landed in further legal bother over an environmental issue relating to his plush farmhouse in Panvel.
India Today reports that as many as 11 of the constructions in Wajapur belong to Khan. Out of the 11, two were raised before 2003 in an area described as an eco-sensitive zone. However, the others were erected after the notice that banned construction of new buildings in the zone.
Maharashtra’s forest department sent a legal notice to Salman Khan’s father, Salim Khan, on 9th June this year, seeking a reply on the same. “As per an earlier notice dated November 21, 2017, an offence was registered for violating the Forest Act for cement/concrete construction on your Arpita farms. After this office checked the documents, it appears that you have done such illegal constructions repeatedly. It is seen that these offences have taken place at Arpita farms,” the letter in Marathi reads.
“Within seven days of the receipt of this letter, what you have to say in the matter be tendered to the undersigned. If you do not give any explanation in the matter within the said time, then it would be presumed, that you have got nothing to say in the matter and legal action shall be taken against your family, which you may note,” the notice warned.
Salim Khan told India Today, “Right now, it’s an allegation. We will speak at the right time. I have nothing more to say.”
