New Delhi:Acting on a High Court directive, the Municipal Corporation of Delhi (MCD) today (April 29, 2005) sealed a property belonging to former cricketer Kapil Dev's wife Romi in a posh South Delhi area for allegedly putting it to commercial use illegally.

The property at B-41, Greater Kailash Part-I, was sealed by officials of the civic body who were accompanied by policemen.

The former Indian captain claimed he had not been informed beforehand by the authorities about the sealing and was yet to get a copy of the order.

"We only got to hear through the media about this, we don't even know why it is being sealed," Dev said.

He said he was talking to his lawyers about the matter.

The Delhi High Court had yesterday (April 28, 2005) ordered MCD to sealthe property on an affidavit by MCD executive engineer (building), South Zone R B S Bansal's affidavit that Romi Dev, proprietor of M/s This N That (readymade garments), occupied the rear side of the property without getting the completion/occupancy certificate.

MCD counsel Ashok Bhasin said the court had on December 17 last directed the MCD and police to ensure that 16 properties including B-41 were not occupied or put to use till the civic body certified that "the constructed is completed strictly in conformity with the sanctioned building plan".

The court had also directed that no commercial activity would commence in any of the 16 properties listed in the December 17 order.
