The BMC on Saturday demolished the illegal 'Wok Hei' restaurant opposite Lower Parel's Phoenix Mills after the Supreme Court ordered it to do so. The action was undertaken by the BMC's G/south ward.
According to a statement released by the civic body, the restaurant was running illegally on Senapati Bapat road for many years. After the BMC issued it a notice, the owner of the restaurant challenged it in court. The matter eventually went up to the Supreme Court which ruled against the restaurant in the matter.
Following the ruling, the court had given the restaurant owner 4 weeks to demolish the structure. The owner had submitted an affidavit promising the same. But, after he failed to do so until Friday, when one month was complete, the BMC demolished the restaurant on Saturday. Around 4 JCBs, 8 dumpers and 40 labourers were used for the action.
