Jayasurya loses legal battle against city corporation

The boat jetty that actor Jayasurya constructed next to his waterfront house at Chilavannur Lake was demolished by authorities on Wednesday.

The officials of the Kochi Corporation demolished the jetty after the actor lost a legal battle over its construction.

The actor had approached the tribunal for local self-government institutions against the notice issued by the local body for demolishing the structure. The civic body initiated legal action based on a complaint that the actor had illegally constructed the boat jetty and the compound wall of his house. Though the boat jetty was demolished on Wednesday, no decision on dismantling the compound wall was taken, said Shiny Mathew, chairperson of the Town Planning Standing Committee of the Kochi Corporation.
