The Supreme Court on Friday has allowed Actor Sonu Sood's plea for withdrawal of his petition as also the civil suit being L.C. Suit No.1368 of 2020 pending before Bombay City Civil Court at Borivili Division, Dindoshi, Bombay, in view of the application for regularisation filed pursuant to the notice dated 2 24.10.2020 under Section 44 of the Maharashtra Regulation and Town Planning Act, 1966.

The bench headed by CJ S. A. Bobde was hearing the plea by Sood challenging the Bombay High Court's recent order dismissing his appeal against Civil Court's rejection in granting temporary injunction against the Greater Mumbai Municipal Corporation.

"Your Lordships, I have withdrawn both the SLP as well as the suit in the trial court. Your Lordships may record this...pursuant to the notice (for illegal construction) which was issued to me under the MRTP Act, I have filed an application for regularisation. I am praying that the authorities may decide my application by a speaking order", Senior Advocate Mukul Rohatgi, for Sood, told the bench.

"We don't want to seem sarcastic, but this appears to be the rare occasion when, by way of correct advice, we see litigation getting resolved", remarked the CJ.

"The petitioner is a Bollywood actor. He has no knowledge about all this. He was misguided", Mr. Rohatgi urged.

"No, no, we don't mean any disrespect to anyone. We are only saying that your advice was absolutely right. It is not very often that we see a matter getting resolved by advice", said the CJ.

"My learned brother is saying that his (Sood's) script has been written well!", he added.

The bench proceeded to record that pursuant to the October, 2020 notice of illegal construction under section 53(1) of the MRTP Act, the petitioner has filed the application for regularisation filed under section 44 of the Act and that in view of the same, the SLP is allowed to be withdrawn.

We direct the concerned Authorities to consider and decide the said application on its own merits and in accordance with law. Accordingly, the special leave petition and the civil suit being L.C. Suit No.1368 of 2020 are dismissed as withdrawn. 

The special leave petition had been filed by AOR D.Kumanan and drawn by Prashant Sivrajan & Ujjawal Anand Sharma.
