Goa's infamous Curlies restaurant, where BJP leader Sonali Phogat, was murdered is going to be demolished after a National Green Tribunal order. The restaurant on Goa's famous Anjuna beach, where Haryana BJP leader Sonali Phogat had visited before coming back to her hotel and complaining of uneasiness, was in the limelight 14 years ago when a British teenager had died. The BJP leader too died in this hotel on August 22.
The restaurant in Goa is said to have allegedly flouted the coastal zone regulations. Hence, the National Green Tribunal, or NGT, upheld the Goa Coastal Zone Management Authority's earlier order to demolish the iconic shack.
