<!– /11440465/Dna_Article_Middle_300x250_BTF –>The Mumbai police have won their case against Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC), which had allotted space outside the police staff quarters, on Mohammed Ali road, to a social group for constructing a public toilet. The Bombay High Court has directed the corporation to allot a different place to the group to build the toilet block.A division bench of Justice Vasanti Naik and Justice Riyaz Chagla said, “We direct the Corporation to permit the petitioner to construct a toilet facility at an appropriate site where toilet facility would not be easily available for the commuters and least inconvenience would be caused to the residents in the locality.”The court gave the direction while disposing of the petition filed by Lok Seva welfare association, which had sought directions to restrain senior police inspector Pydhonie, Deputy Commissioner of Police of the zone, from stopping the construction of the toilets on the footpath. The civic body had on November 5, 2015, granted permission to the petition to construct the toilet. However, the police had been opposing the same.
