New Delhi: A section of the property, which belongs to former Indian cricketer Sachin Tendulkar’s friend, in Mussoorie’s Landour Cantonment area has been demolished by Cantonment Board for illegal construction, reports ANI.
It was earlier reported that, Tendulkar owned some part of the property. However, Tendulkar had already denied that and stated it belongs to his friend and hotelier Sanjay Narang.
Last year it was reported that Tendulkar met the then defence minister Manohar Parrikar regarding the property dispute. Tendulkar later denied the speculation of being the owner and said he attended a meeting only to seek help for a friend.
Earlier in September, the Supreme Court had rejected Sanjay Narang’s plea against the demolition and the Cantonment Board to get rid of the illegal structure.
“We have received orders from the apex court to demolish the 28,000 square foot property in two weeks. We have given orders for the bungalow to be vacated and for the owner to move all his belongings before that,” Dehradun Cantonment Board CEO Jakir Hussain had told the Times of India.
Now as per ANI, some section of the lavish property has been demolished thus putting an end to a six-year-long legal battle.
