Salman Khan and his family have been fighting a legal battle with the Forest Department over the disputed property of their Panvel farm house for a while now.

For those who are unaware, the Khan family was faced with the risk of losing their Panvel property due to a Bombay High Court ruling which upheld the state government’s contention that the Khan family were encroachers on property that belonged to the Forest Department.

However, in a Supreme Court ruling dated January 30, 2014, the bench directed the Maharashtra Government to remove the tag ‘private forest’ that had been attached the family’s 35 acre property.
