Mumbai: Antilla is in trouble. The 27-storey building that Mukesh Ambani erected for his personal use may be probed by the government on alleged irregularities in the sale of the land.

The house costing around $1 billion is one of the most expensive one in the world.

It is alleged that the land on which the luxurious residence stands is built on Wakf property.

According to reports, senior members of the state Wakf board and a Minorities minister have alleged that the plot was reserved for the education of Muslim children.

The land was sold to the chairman of the Reliance Industries by the Currimbhoy Ebrahim Khoja Orphanage Trust for Rs.21.5 crore ($4.77 million) in 2002.

The deal was finalised without the approval of the Wakf board.

The Maharashtra State Wakf Board, which oversees the maintenance and administration of Wakf property and land.
