Yash's mother asked to clear rent dues: High Court

Bengaluru: The High Court on Wednesday directed Sandalwood actor Yash’s mother A Pushpa to pay unpaid house rent amounting Rs 23 lakh to the owner of the house at Kathriguppe in Banashankari 3rd Stage.

If she fails to pay the rent, she will have to vacate the house by December 31, the High court directed.

A division bench comprising Justice A S Bopanna and Justice Sreenivas Harish Kumar was hearing a petition filed by Pushpa who had moved the court challenging the amount directed to be paid by the sessions court. “The court permitted Pushpa to live in the rented house till March 31, 2019 if she pays up Rs 23.27 lakh by December 31, 2018. Otherwise, she has to vacate the house by December 31. The amount includes the arrears of rent, interest and the damages,” said M T Nanaiah.

Pushpa had claimed that she had spent Rs 12.50 lakh towards construction of compound wall, sump and overhead tank, rooftop flooring, etc., and installing electrical fittings. The owners had promised her that the amount will be adjusted towards the rent. But owners failed to do so, she claimed while justifying that she has paid the rent regularly to the owners.
