It was on Monday when Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) made a decision to demolish the second floor of Warsi's bungalow. Since the bungalow was locked during officials' visit, the BMC carried out only symbolic demolition. Arshad Warsi received notice on Saturday by BMC for the illegal construction of bungalow No. 10 in Air India Co-operative Society (Shantiniketan).

However, with no response from Arshad, BMC demolished a portion of it on Monday, according to The Times of India. This move comes four years after the alleged illegality came under the BMC scanner.

When TOI sent a text message to the actor after the demolition, seeking his version, he replied saying, "It's true". An additional floor was added to the building by the actor illegally. The BMC also examined other bungalows in the vicinity and found out that many others have carried out such illegal constructions. And recently when the court lifted the stay order, the demolition took place.

The officials, however, have said that they will be issuing another notice to the actor and his wife Maria Goretti, asking them to allow the officials to enter their premises and remove the second floor.

Bollywood actor Arshad Warsi has fallen into a legal trouble as his residence at Versova, Mumbai has been noticed for illegal construction.
