A children play park and walking track will also be developed along the ground. The turf will have food court, parking facilities and seating arrangements for people to watch the game,” he added. The turf will be developed by a private agency though the water, electricity, land and minor civic works will be provided by the corporation. The agency will give twenty percent of the profit earned to the corporation. The entry to this turf will be charged. The turf will be open for general public from 12.00 pm to 4.00 pm everyday.

According to the Naupada police, the deceased, Sandhya Jadhav, was a resident of Panchpakhadi in Thane, close to the lake. She used to go for a morning walk at the lake every day. Her brother, Vinayak Kharat, said he received a call from his wife on Monday, telling him that Sandhya, who usually returned from her walk in 30 to 45 minutes, had not come back even after two hours. “I reached the lake to try and find her, and saw a crowd had gathered at the lake as a body was floating in the water. I recognised the body as my sister,” Mr. Kharat said. Thane Municipal Corporation officials said they received a call around 8:45 a.m. and sent a fire brigade team, which removed the body from the water. The Naupada police, who were informed by Mr. Kharat, also sent a team to the spot. The police rushed Sandhya to the Thane Civil Hospital, where she was declared dead before admission. “Sandhya’s family members have told us that she had been sick for the last few days and was under heavy medication, which is likely to have taken a toll on her mental health. The lake is surrounded by high walls, and it is impossible for anyone to fall into the water by accident,” said Senior Police Inspector Sanjay Dhumal. Sandhya worked as a peon in a school in Thane and used to stay with her husband, who delivers newspapers for a living, and two teenaged children who study in the Thane Municipal School. She had been admitted to the Kaushalya medical centre in Panchpakhadi for five days last week due to high fever, Mr. Kharat said. Sandhya’s body was handed over to her family after a postmortem examination, and she was cremated on Monday evening. The police have filed an accidental death report in the case. Kacharali lake and nearby recreational areas were closed for the rest of the day. Post a Comment Receive the best of The Hindu delivered to your inbox everyday! GO Please enter a valid email address.

The new-born baby was stolen from the maternity ward of the Thane Civil Hospital early morning yesterday, a few hours after a tribal woman gave birth to him. A crime branch team led by inspector Nitin Thackre raided a house at Pisavali in Kalyan tehsil of the district this morning, and arrested Gudiya Sonu Rajbhar (35), her husband Sonu Rajbhar (40) and Vijay Kailas Srivastava (55). Apart from the stolen infant, they found five other children there. One of them was a two-month-old girl. Others were three girls who are eleven-year-old , nine-year-old, five-year-old respectively and a three-year-old boy. They were apparently not related to the accused, police said. A woman approached her and asked to hand over the boy saying `your mother wants to see him'. Taking the baby, the woman fled. Thane police commissioner Madhukar Pandey said that police started a massive search operation from Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj Terminus in south Mumbai to Kalyan. CCTV footage at the hospital and railway stations led the police team to Pisavali village. The three accused were arrested under section 363 (kidnapping) of the IPC. The commissioner said police were probing if the other five rescued children too had been stolen, and whether any organised child-trafficking gang was involved.   Continue FREE with Ads Pay Rs. 1 to Read Without Ads READ MORE IN: Outlook Web Bureau Thane Children National Reportage Post a Comment You are not logged in, To comment please Login / Register or use Next Story : Extortion Case: Gangster Abu Salem Claims Lack of Evidence Against Him Download the Outlook ?Magazines App. Six magazines, wherever you go!

Shiv Sena, NCP join hands to capture power in Thane Zilla ParishadShiv Sena, NCP join hands to capture power in Thane Zilla ParishadThe Shiv Sena and the NCP have joined hands and captured power at the Thane Zilla Parishad (ZP) keeping the BJP out.PTI | Jan 15, 2018, 23:40 IST THANE: The Shiv Sena and the NCP have joined hands and captured power at the Thane Zilla Parishad (ZP) keeping the BJP out. While Sena nominee Majusha Jadhav was on Monday elected unopposed as ZP president, NCP candidate Subash Pawar was elected unopposed as the vice-president. BJP candidates withdrew their nomination forms at the eleventh hour paving way for smooth sailing of the Shiv Sena and NCP combine. The elections to the 53-member Thane ZP were held last month in which Shiv Sena bagged 26 seats, NCP 10, BJP 16 and 1 seat was won by an independent candidate. Senior Shiv Sena leader and Thane Guardian Minister Eknath Shinde told reporters "the arrangement of going with the NCP was a local one." Shinde said "the tie up in Thane ZP was based on the discussions between Sena chief Uddhav Thackeray and NCP supremo Sharad Pawar." "On the development issues, we are together," he said. Shinde, however, did not comment on the future of the possible tie up with the NCP in the other elections.

A bench headed by Justice B R Gavai directed that a senior officer from the Thane police department file the reply by January 17, responding to the allegations made in the petition. The plea was filed by Pushpa Jagtap, a resident of Thane district near here. In her petition, Jagtap claimed that her son Mitesh was arrested by officials of Titwala police station in Thane district on August 21, 2017, on the charge of stealing a motorcycle. The petitioner claimed that the police beat her son in the custody and abused him even though he was innocent. She said some police officials refused to return her son's mobile phone when he was released from their custody on August 22. "They (police officials) threatened to incriminate him in other cases and asked us for money in return for the phone.When my son told them he didn't want his phone back since we had no money to give, they threatened they would ensure that I was publicly shamed," Jagtap said in her plea. "My son couldn't bear this humiliation and constant harassment at the hands of the police and hanged himself in the house on August 23," she said. Jagtap demanded that the police officials concerned be booked on the charge of abetment of suicide. PTI AYA NSK SMN .This is unedited, unformatted feed from the Press Trust of India wire.

2018-01-15Baby abducted from Thane hospital traced in 24 hours - Times of India
Baby abducted from Thane hospital traced in 24 hoursBaby abducted from Thane hospital traced in 24 hoursShrutika SukhiSwift and meticulous police action, backed by extensive CCTV coverage across Thane and Mumbai, helped rescue in 24 hours a newborn kidnapped from Thane civil hospital early on Sunday. | TNN | Updated: Jan 16, 2018, 01:33 IST THANE: Swift and meticulous police action, backed by extensive CCTV coverage across Thane and Mumbai, helped rescue in 24 hours a newborn kidnapped from Thane civil hospital early on Sunday. Three persons were arrested from Kalyan. The baby, which went missing around 3am on Sunday, was reunited with his mother Mohini Bhovar, 19, on Monday morning. Gudiya Rajbhar, 35, her husband Sonu, 40, and their relative Vijay Srivastava, 55, were held in the slums of Pisavli village around 11am. Besides the baby, six children-between two months and 12 years-were found in the house. The Rajbhar couple claimed them as their own. Police plan to conduct DNA tests. The newborn, swathed in a blanket, was returned in the hospital to his mother, who had spent a day crying, refusing her prescribed diet, and cursing herself and the people around for the loss of her baby five hours after a normal delivery late on Saturday. Madhukar Pandey, joint commissioner of police, Thane, said CCTV footage from the hospital had shown a woman in a pink saree taking away Bhovar's child from the labour ward in the early hours of Sunday. "She could be seen fleeing with a 12-year-old girl and Srivastav. The trio boarded an autorickshaw and went to Thane station," added Pandey. They boarded the 4:30am Ambernath-CSMT train and took the same train back to Kalyan. "It was the first train they saw in the station and boarded so as not to evoke suspicion. When they reached CSMT, they did not get off. The rake had become a Titwala-bound local, and they continued on it. We sent eight officers and 25 police officials to various stations, from CSMT to Titwala. After going through the CCTV footage, we saw the three alighting at Kalyan. After inquiries, we found that Gudiya stayed with her husband Sonu and Srivastav in Pisavli," said Nitin Thakre, a senior inspector from crime branch unit-1, who raided their house. On Monday morning, the cops arrived at the small two-room house. In one room, were the six children. "When we asked for the abducted infant, Gudiya claimed there wasn't any. We started searching and found a bunker, made of sacks and covered with newspapers. The baby was kept inside," said an officer. The police said they do not suspect the involvement of any hospital staff. Also, going by the condition of the six children, they assume they had been abducted for begging. When TOI spoke to the children, they seemed to have been tutored. They claimed they were siblings, but could not recall each other's birthdays. The eldest 12-year-old girl claimed she helped her "mother" with household chores. The children also claimed they attended a nearby Hindi medium school, which the cops said they will verify. They have been sent to a children's home.

We are investigating the matter to nab the accused.” The mother Mohini Bhovar, 19, had come to the hospital on Saturday evening and was immediately taken into the operation theatre for delivery. The stolen baby’s family resides in Bhiwandi and the father of the child works in a power loom factory there.“My wife was alone when a woman came and took the child away. It was later when we could not find the child that we contacted the hospital and realised that the child was missing,” said Mohan Bhovar, 24, father of the child.Dr Sangita Makode, additional civil surgeon at Thane civil hospital, said Mohini Bhovar had given birth to her son around 10.30 pm on Saturday in a normal delivery. “The CCTV footage of the labour room shows that the infant was abducted around 3am by an unidentified woman,” said Dr Makode.She said there were two nurses and a doctor in the labour ward when the incident occurred but they were attending a patient who had gone into labour. “It’s been around four months that we have given an application to the deputy director of health services to sanction around 50 people for security. We are hoping that it would be sanctioned soon,” she said. more from mumbai Women may not have obtain permission from HC for aborting foetuses having serious abnormalities Jan 14, 2018 23:02 IST Maharashtra unlikely to deliver relief promised to cotton farmers hit by pest attack, say officials Jan 14, 2018 22:41 IST Help 10-year-old Nisha fight thalassemia and go back to school Promotional Feature Recommended for you Read more You may be able to buy smaller packs of medicines instead of entire strips in Mumbai soon Mumbai to get first government-run burns hospital by 2020 IndiaWorldBusinessEducationAutosReal estate OpinionAnalysisColumnsEditorialsAuthors CitiesDelhiGurgaonNoidaMumbaiBhopalChandigarhDehradunIndoreJaipurKolkataLucknowPatnaRanchiPune SportsCricketFootballTennisOthers EntertainmentMovie reviewsBollywoodHollywoodRegional moviesWorld cinemaTVMusicTabloid LifestyleSex & relationshipFitnessFashion & trendsArt & cultureTravelBooksBrunch TechTech ReviewsGadgets PhotosVideosEpaperinteractivesPunjab LivemintLivehindustanShineHTcampusDesimartiniStudymateEnglishmateHTsyndicationbridge school Follow us on: Newsletter Register with Hindustan Times to get best news and articles Copyright © HT Media Limited All rights reserved.

Kite making, sketching a hit at Happy StreetsKite making, sketching a hit at Happy Streetstnn | Jan 14, 2018, 22:17 IST Thane: Twelve-year-old Gandhi Nagar resident Ajay Shah, who was accompanied by his friends, rejoiced Happy Streets Sunday for the first time after jostling to find a space to try hand on making a kite of his own creation from varied materials. Vijay Group and Suraksha Realty made the desire of Shah and several others being fulfilled while providing a platform through kite making session at Happy Streets. "We came to participate in zumba dance but as the show was yet to start we made it a point to make kites. It was quite amazing experience. Literally, we got to learn the art of making kite with ease," said Shah. Makar Sankranti was celebrated at the Vijay-Suraksha Art Zone. "It's a beautiful and well thought concept to convert the motorable road into non-vehicular for 3 hours. Traffic department should use this event to create awareness of road safety," said Anil Rao, a Vasant Vihar resident. Street paining was yet another hit event in the show where hundreds of kids settled down quite comfortably on the road and turn it into a large canvas while putting their views on various topics. Happy Streets, is an initiative of Thane traffic police, TMC, Vijay Group and Suraksha Realty and supported by TOI where people come up with new ideas and concepts to create wider awareness in the society. Dance fitness, Bollywood and Zumba, Bokwa were some of the major attractions at the main stage. Young kids could not hold their rhythm and tried to learn a lesson of musical instrument at Drum Circle which was open to all age groups. People across all age groups took part in special yoga with fun session at Patanjali stage. Snehashish Dance Academy students performed much to the delight of audience. They too attracted many elderly participants at its dance workshop which so far trained 500 Happy Streets regulars in basics.

Four robbers held in Thane for stealing gold in AkolaFour robbers held in Thane for stealing gold in AkolaNishikant Karlikar | TNN | Jan 13, 2018, 13:00 IST THANE: The city crime branch arrested as many as four robbers involved in two cases of thefts wherein they had fled with 4.75 kg gold worth Rs 1.50 crore from Akola and were absconding since then. The police said that the four accused are involved in the theft of gold which is transported by the private secret carriers to and from Mumbai to Akola. The kingpin of the gang is Bhagirath Kharagyal 30, Birju Chahade 27, Vinay Bhoyar, 32 and Laxman Patil 38 all resident of Nagpur. IT was in a robbery case, Kharagyal and three other absconding accused had snatched a bag of gold jewellery as well as gold biscutis from Akola railway station. Nearly 2500 grams of gold worth Rs 75 lakh was stolen and a case was registered at Ramdas peth police station in Akola. Later again in 2017, the gang with Kharagyal and his accomplice again snatched the bag similarly which had a total of 2225 grams of gold worth Rs 67.50 lakh. The Akola police had failed to detect both the cases and clueless on the whereabouts. The crime branch unit-1 senior inspector Nitin Thakre, through the network of informers learnt that the accused would be coming to Thane. Hence they laid a trap and arrested the accused. Thakre informed that they shall be handed over to the Akola police for further probe and no recovery is made from them. The police said that Kharagyal is also accused in a murder case of his father-in-law and had killed him a day after their wedding. "It is likely that they may be involved in other robberies as well, further probe may reveal it," said Aviraj Kurhade, assistant inspector.

2018-01-13Thane railway overbridge to be ready by July - Hindustan Times

The rail overbridge is slated to be completed by July this year. The bridge will close down the railway fhatak used by people to cross tracks between east and west side of Kalwa, which has led to a number of deaths in the past.On the other hand, though the Thane Municipal Corporation (TMC) has started preliminary ROB work, it has now proposed to appoint a consultant to design the ROB, a month after starting the work. The TMC’s proposal states that over Rs50 lakh will be spent on the consultant. The budget of the project is Rs27 crore.The residents of Kalwa have to cross the track from this railway crossing owing to the lack of a bridge in this area. On an average, 30 people die every year while crossing the tracks at the Kharegaon crossing. Vehicles, too, have to wait a long time to cross the railway line. The ROB was proposed over a decade ago, but was delayed owing to various reasons. The ROB is to be constructed by the railways and the TMC together. While the railways had completed work on the ROB in the section that falls in its jurisdiction, the TMC has only just begun the work.A civic engineer requesting anonymity said, “The work on the ROB was supposed to start last year. However, we were awaiting the appointment of a consultant. Despite repeated tenders, we did not get any response. This delayed the work further. Finally, in October, we got response from three agencies and have now proposed to appoint one of them as a consultant.”The corporation, however, did not wait for the consultation and has begun the work. “We started the work almost a month ago, as we did not want to delay it further. We began the regular piling and foundation work at present and will take up the core work after the report of the consultant,” the engineer said. “We do not have sufficient engineers to manage and design the entire project, so we have to appoint a consultant for the same. Once the consultant is finalised, we will be able to finish the bridge by July,” he added. more from mumbai A ‘Multani’ Lohri: How a niche community is keeping its culture alive Jan 14, 2018 01:14 IST Expect Mumbai to stay cloudy till Monday, say weathermen Jan 14, 2018 01:12 IST Help 10-year-old Nisha fight thalassemia and go back to school Promotional Feature Recommended for you IndiaWorldBusinessEducationAutosReal estate OpinionAnalysisColumnsEditorialsAuthors CitiesDelhiGurgaonNoidaMumbaiBhopalChandigarhDehradunIndoreJaipurKolkataLucknowPatnaRanchiPune SportsCricketFootballTennisOthers EntertainmentMovie reviewsBollywoodHollywoodRegional moviesWorld cinemaTVMusicTabloid LifestyleSex & relationshipFitnessFashion & trendsArt & cultureTravelBooksBrunch TechTech ReviewsGadgets PhotosVideosEpaperinteractivesPunjab LivemintLivehindustanShineHTcampusDesimartiniStudymateEnglishmateHTsyndicationbridge school Follow us on: Newsletter Register with Hindustan Times to get best news and articles Copyright © HT Media Limited All rights reserved.

It is learnt that Athaval's body was fished out from the Nhava Sheva area early September. As the body was decomposed and beyond recognition, the Uran police decided to conduct a DNA test. Balwant Singh, relative of the deceased said, "On September 11, we got a call from Shreenagar police station asking us to visit a hospital in Vashi to identify a body. The next day we went to the hospital. Ajay's mother and elder brother were called to give their blood samples. We kept inquiring with the officials but in vain." On Thursday, the results of the DNA test were revealed which showed that it matched with that of Athaval's 70-yearold mother. A civic official said, "There was another family from Panvel who claimed that the body belonged to them. So the DNA reports took time. The body was handed over to the family on Friday for the last rites." It is believed that Athaval, known as Meenu by his loved ones, slipped and fell into an adjoining nullah near his slum tenement at Ramnagar when he went to help his neighbours during the deluge. Athaval is survived by his mother, Khushboo, his wife and three daughters of aged eight, three and one.

Dombivli BJP corporatorDombivli BJP corporator’s anticipatory bail plea rejectedNishikant KarlikarThe Kalyan sessions court has rejected the anticipatory bail application of BJP corporator Mahesh Patil, who has been accused of announcing a contract to eliminate another BJP corporator, Kunal Patil. | TNN | Jan 14, 2018, 02:53 IST(Representative Image) THANE: The Kalyan sessions court has rejected the anticipatory bail application of BJP corporator Mahesh Patil, who has been accused of announcing a contract to eliminate another BJP corporator, Kunal Patil. Investigation officer, R V Kothmire pointed out the criminal antecedents of Mahesh and said that there were over 15 cases of serious offences registered against him. The officer also added that if Mahesh was granted bail, it could be easier for him to tamper with the witnesses not just in this case but also the previous ones he is accused of being involved in. Kothmire said that the case was serious in nature and that the other accused arrested had deadly firearms, which did not belong to Mahesh. "In fact, after their henchmen were arrested, Mahesh and his aides had posted several objectionable posts on social media openly threatening to eliminate the opponents. Under such circumstances they should not be given an anticipatory bail," he pointed out. After hearing both the sides, the judge rejected the anticipatory bail plea paving way for the arrest of Mahesh, said Kothmire. Mahesh and Kunal, both from Dombivli, have been locked in a bitter battle since the past couple of years for an alleged one-upmanship triggering a war-like situation which even lead to murders on either sides. It is also learnt that both the parties were involved in scuffles at the Kalyan- Dombivli Municipal Corporation general body meetings. Interestingly, Kunal was arrested for allegedly awarding a Rs 1 crore contract to kill Mahesh a few years ago.

While there has been a growing level of awareness among citizens about the need for keeping the environment in mind while celebrating any festival over the past few years resulting in minimal bird injuries during festivals like Makar Sankranti, wildlife rescuers are afraid that this awareness level is dying in various pockets of the city. "Last year, we came across only one incident, wherein a pigeon fell prey to a kite string cut. However, this year, we have already seen a number of these bird injury cases, days before the festival. The worst case was that of a bat found entangled in a mesh of kite thread last week. It is now in a critical condition and is to be operated," said Nilesh Bhanage, founder of animal NGO PAWS. The groups have been spreading awareness through discussions, educational institutions and social media to sensitise the youths about the brutality animals and birds have been facing due to the glass-coated kite strings. "It is impossible to ask people not to fly kites during the festive season. We are reaching out to citizens through social media and mobile applications asking them not to use glass coated strings which injure birds greatly. Our volunteers and three ambulances will be taking rounds of the city today to cater to any injured wildlife. We will also be closely monitoring the kite festival in Kalyan to prevent any wildlife casualties," said Bhanage. Aditi Nair, chairperson of Pal NGO in Thane, said, "As wildlife rescuers cannot be everywhere, citizens can play a huge role in rescuing injured birds. They should first pick the bird with a cloth and cover it to prevent it from going into a shock and suffering a cardiac arrest. They should then put it in a ventilated cardboard box and take it to the nearest veterinary clinic. These injured birds should not be fed any food or water."

Mumbai Metro 4 will now reach Thane’s Ghodbunder Road The 2.7-km extension from Kasarvadavli to Gaimukh, which was approved in the 144th meeting of the Mumbai Metropolitan Region Development Authority (MMRDA), will provide connectivity to additional 1.5 lakh passengers on the route. mumbai Updated: Jan 12, 2018 22:12 IST HT Correspondent Hindustan Times The 2.7-km extension from Kasarvadavli to Gaimukh, which was approved in the 144th meeting of the Mumbai Metropolitan Region Development Authority (MMRDA), will provide connectivity to additional 1.5 lakh passengers on the route. (FILE) Chief minister Devendra Fadnavis on Friday approved the extension of the Wadala-Ghatkopar-Thane-Kasarvadavli Metro-4 corridor to Ghodbunder Road. The 2.7-km extension from Kasarvadavli to Gaimukh, which was approved in the 144th meeting of the Mumbai Metropolitan Region Development Authority (MMRDA), will provide connectivity to additional 1.5 lakh passengers on the route. The Ghodbunder Road stretch till Gaimukh, which is the border of the Thane Municipal Corporation, has seen substantial growth in population in the past three to four years, with several new residential and commercial projects. The extension is aimed to provide better connectivity with Mumbai and development of the region. “We have approved the extension to the Wadala-Kasarvadavli Metro-4 corridor up to Gaimukh. We are also bringing another Metro corridor – Thane-Bhiwandi-Kalyan Metro-5 – to the metropolitan region. We will make every effort to make everyone’s commute easy and comfortable,” Fadnavis said. The MMRDA, which is executing the 32-km Metro-4 corridor, is currently in the process of bidding for the Metro line that would connect central Mumbai to the eastern suburbs of Mumbai. The Kasarvadavli-Gaimukh extension of the Metro line is expected to be completed by March 2022, MMRDA officials said. “The two-station extension will add about 1.5 lakh riders to the 8.7 lakh commuters that will be carried by the Wadala-Kasarvadavli Metro-4 corridor,” UPS Madan, metropolitan commissioner, MMRDA, said. The authority also sanctioned Rs949 crore for the project and will be taken up for execution once the state cabinet gives its nod. Senior MMRDA officials said the project will be partly funded by the Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank (AIIB), while the MMRDA will spend Rs449 crore on civil works of the project. The chief minister also approved the revised cost of the proposed Bhayander-Vasai sea link on Friday and directed the MMRDA to commence work by July. The 5.5-km bridge that was proposed in 2013 will now cost Rs1,500crore. Pegged at Rs875 crore, the cost escalated due to delay, officials working on the project said. CM Devendra Fadnavis approved the revised fares for the monorail corridor, which will come into effect once the phase 2 of the project is commissioned. The Wadala-Jacob Circle of the Monorail is expected to start by mid-year. “The fare structure approved is on the lines of the Metro fares—Rs10-20-30-40, but with a bigger km margin. We want to keep parity [in fare] in modes of transports,” said Madan. The current fare on the Chembur-Wadala arm of the Monorail is between Rs 5 and Rs 11. more from mumbai Five months after man drowned in Mumbai floods, body handed over to family Jan 13, 2018 00:48 IST Your complaint ignored?

Ladies special: 50 Tejaswini buses to hit Thane roads by March The state, in its budget for 2016-17, had dedicated 300 Tejaswini buses for women commuters and had made a provision for Rs50 crore for it. mumbai Updated: Jan 13, 2018 00:36 IST Megha Pol Hindustan Times TMT has been asked to start operating all-women buses by March, or else the funds provided will lapse. (Praful Gangurde/HT ) The Thane Municipal Corporation (TMC) has said it will begin plying special buses for women by March. The city will get 50 ‘Tejaswini’ buses from the state government. The TMC will not float fresh tenders for the buses and they will be bought from the same company providing buses under the Jawaharlal Nehru National Urban Renewal Mission (JNNURM) nscheme.The state, in its budget for 2016-17, had dedicated 300 Tejaswini buses for women commuters and had made a provision for Rs50 crore for it. The 300 buses were for six municipal corporations including Kalyan-Dombivli, Navi Mumbai, Pune, Nagpur, Mumbai and Thane. Sandeep Malvi, Thane Municipal Transport (TMT) manager, said, “We are planning to buy the buses by March and start the operations before March-end. We have received around Rs6 crore in the first slab from the state government, of the total budget of Rs14.62 crore required to operate the buses.”The women-special buses will be midi-buses with 27 to 30 seats and with a floor height of 900mm.The state will decide the colour and other features of the buses. The TMC has formed a committee to implement the project as per the state guidelines. The committee includes the civic commissioner, additional commissioner, chief accounts and finance officer and TMT manager. The committee was supposed to decide the model of the buses, the number of buses and also if the buses will be air-conditioned or not.“The state has asked to float tenders . If we carry out the tender process, more than eight to ten months will be lost and we have been asked to start the operation of these buses by March or the funds provided will lapse. Instead, during tendering of midi-buses under the JNNURM scheme, we had stated that the authority has the right to increase 25% buses. The agency is already providing 190 midi-buses under the JNNURM scheme and is ready to provide 25% more, which is, around 50 midi-buses as per the contract. These buses will be used as the Tejaswini buses,” said Malvi.The municipal corporation will also have to construct separate depots to park the buses as the existing depots do not have enough space. more from mumbai Five months after man drowned in Mumbai floods, body handed over to family Jan 13, 2018 00:48 IST Your complaint ignored?

According to the activist, despite a stay order from the Bombay High Court and the green tribunal’s order against the Thane Municipal Corporation, there has been mindless cutting of trees. The Thane civic body has been organising the tree exhibition, Vrukshavalli, at Raymond’s gate in Vartak Nagar, to improve the city’s green cover. However, on the first day of the exhibition, activists from the Thane Matdata Jagran Manch (TMJM) spotted some men cutting off branches of a Banyan tree, said the complaint to the Thane police. “Our volunteer Dilip Aloni saw the men chopping off the branches and clicked pictures before approaching them to get their identities. He was told they were TMC workers and even the vehicle had the TMC sticker,” alleged Rohit Joshi, an activist of TMJM. However, when Aloni asked them for a written permission, they were unable to show it and left after finishing only half the work. “The tree anyway belongs to the Ficus family, which are not to be destructed under a 2006 order of the High Court. Then there is a stay by the High Court to cut trees in Thane without permission from the tree authority. The TMC has already been rebuked by the green tribunal, on my plea, but they don’t seem to learn their lessons,” said Pradeep Indulkar, another activist who had filed a case against the civic body before the green tribunal over hapless cutting of trees. He said: “It is ironical that on one hand the corporation is encouraging and exhibiting young plants, and on other hand destructing the old, tall and strong trees. The intention of the body and the authorities are questionable.” TMC spokesperson Sandeep Malwi said: “I will have to check with Kedar Patil from the tree authority to understand the situation.” For all the latest Mumbai News, download Indian Express App More Top News India vs South Africa 1st Test: South Africa beat India by 72 runs Section 377: Supreme Court will revisit its order banning gay sex; societal morality changes with time No Comments.

The 2.7km-long extension called as the Metro-4A corridor, will add two more stations - Gowniwada and Gaimukh - to the 32km-long Wadala-Ghatkopar-Mulund-Thane-Kasarvadavali Metro-4 corridor. The authority also sanctioned Rs 949 crore for the project and recommended the same to the state government for its approval. "The dividing line between Mumbai and its metropolitan region is getting thinner. We have approved the DPR for the Gaimukh extension of the Wadala- Kasarwadavli route and are also bringing another metro corridor - Thane-Bhiwandi-Kalyan Metro-5 - to the metropolitan region," said Fadnavis. Metropolitan commissioner UPS Madan said the two-station extension will add about 1.5 lakh riders to the 8.7 lakh commuters that will be carried by the Wadala-Kasarvadavali Metro-4 corridor. It may be recalled that TOI was the first to report about the MMRDA plans to develop Gaimukh into a transport hub as the MMRDA has plans to connect the area with Bhayander and Kalyan from the stretch in the near future. Officials said the demand for a direct link between Dahisar, Bhayander and Kalyan or Thane was always being discussed considering the heavy passenger density here that presently relies only on road connectivity. The proposed extension of the metro lines till Gaimukh has revived the discussions with officials who are now busy sketching the feasibility for converting a metro hub at Gaimukh. Residents from the Western suburbs or Thane, Bhiwandi, Kalyan and suburbs can alight at Gaimukh station and access the corresponding line to reach their respective destinations without even having to switch over to another mode. The hub could be similar to the existing Thane, Kurla or Dadar railway stations wherein commuters get the option to switch over from the Central line to the transharbour, harbour routes or western line and viceversa. The chief minister had announced plans to extend the Dahisar metro till Gaimukh passing through Mira-Bhayender coinciding with the simultaneous plans to extend the Wadala Kasarwadavli metro 4 line in July last year.

Guardian minister Eknath Shinde chaired a meeting of officals from the state PWD, MMRDA and the TMC in Mantralaya on Thursday to clear administrative obstacles which lead to adding two lanes on each side, making it a seamless eight-lane bridge at Kopri. Thorny issues on the costs, the tendering process etc were ironed out before the commencement of this multi-crore project starts next month, the minister said. "We have received four tenders for this project and we will finalise it in a week or two. While the first phase of the project will be the actual construction of the four lanes, parallel to the existing rail-over- bridge, it will be followed by the repair work of the existing bridge. We are also going to build a subway near Dnyansadhana college to ease the traffic congestion. While the project will start before the first week of February, it should be completed in two-and-a-half to three years," Shinde told TOI. Over the past few years, the Kopri area has witnessed mega traffic jams as vehicles speeding on the eight lane Eastern Express Highway have to converge at the narrow four-lane Kopri ROB causing tremendous traffic congestion and wastage of commuter's time at morning and evening peak hours. Often this traffic jam spills over to the nearby bottlenecks including the Teen Hath Naka junction and the Anand Nagar Toll naka, thus adding to the congestion and delay there. Shinde also announced the detailed plan for Wadala-Ghatkopar-Kasarvadawli Metro should be finalised soon.

2018-01-11Thane duo invent machine which converts plastic into energy - Free Press Journal
Thane duo invent machine which converts plastic into energy Thane duo invent machine which converts plastic into energy — By Akash Sakaria | Jan 11, 2018 08:30 am FOLLOW US: Mumbai: Thane residents have come up with a unique machine that produces fuel from plastic and biogas from wet waste which can further generate electricity. These can be used to meet your small-time fuel needs like oiling machine, power generator, etc. A strong urge in zero garbage led the Thane residents Vikal Chaurasiya and Melwyn Fernandes to invent a machine which can be beneficial for the environment as well as reduce the burden on the municipal body. The idea of making such a machine struck them two years ago, and the duo has been working on it since then.  “You will hardly find a house without plastic wastes, be it water bottles or plastic bags or empty cans. It is extremely difficult to decompose plastic. So we together thought of chipping in for the environment and people,” said Melwyn Fernandes, 47, who is a mechanical engineer and also a parishioner. The Thane inhabitants claim the machine uses plastic wastes to make fuel which has a component similar to diesel. The machine available in the market weighs around two tons, but they made it in such a way that every society would be able to utilise it. “The machine is capable of converting five kilos of plastic into fuel daily. It can be used by housing societies to process their plastic waste. This diesel-like fuel can be used to oil other machines – as fuel in generators or even burn funeral pyres,” Vikal Chaurasiya, founder of Urja Setu, said. Chaurasiya also added that it is the first machine which focuses on converting dry wastes into something useful. “While handling wet wastes, people forget that they have to take care of dry wastes as well. Many equipments are available for wet waste treatment, so we decided to make the machine which would convert dry wastes, plastic in particular, as well,” he said. Thane city generates over 700 metric tonnes of garbage daily. There are over 700 big housing complexes in Thane and dumping garbage becomes a big issue. “Time and again, (Bombay) High court has asked officials to look into ways of solid waste management. But at the same time, people should also step up and do their bit for the environment,” added Chaurasiya.

2018-01-11Thane: Man acquitted of charges of raping four-year-old girl - Free Press Journal
Thane: Man acquitted of charges of raping four-year-old girl Thane: Man acquitted of charges of raping four-year-old girl — By PTI | Jan 11, 2018 11:31 am FOLLOW US: Thane: A special court acquitted a 40-year-old powerloom worker in Bhiwandi township here of charges of raping a four-year-old girl. R N Bawankar, the judge of the special court for hearing cases under the Protection of Children from Sexual Offences (POCSO) Act, observed that the prosecution failed to prove the charges against the accused. The man, a resident of Khadipur locality in Bhiwandi, was booked under section 376 of the Indian Penal Code (rape) and provisions of the POCSO Act for allegedly sexually assaulting the girl when she was playing outside her home in his neighbourhood on November 22, 2016. The victim’s mother later filed a complaint at the Nizampura Police Station following which he was arrested. Three eyewitnesses deposed in the court but did not support the prosecution’s theory. After hearing both the sides, Judge Bawankar, in a recent order, acquitted the man while observing that since the eyewitnesses did not support the case, the evidence submitted on record by the investigating officer was not sufficient to prove the charges levelled beyond reasonable doubt.

The auditors, in their report, questioned the spending of a massive Rs 1.65 crore by the department in 2014-2015 reportedly utilised for demolishing old and illegal structures in the city. The report (a copy is with this newspaper) shows that the department apparently made the expenditure on conducting the drives, it apparently failed to recover the same from the owner in some cases as is mandated. The department undertook various drives in the Vartak nagar, Uthalsar, Majiwada, Wagle estate, Rayladevi, Kalwa and Mumbra wards in that period. However, the local ward offices that conduct the drives reportedly failed to maintain the records leading the auditors to point fingers at this apparent discrepancy. An official from the corporation informed that the administration is empowered to demolish structures that are either illegal or are in dilapidated condition after an approval from the civic commissioner. However, the cost of the demolition and removal of the debris is to be recovered from the tenants or the owner of the structure, as is mandated in the sections 260 (2) and 264 (4) of the Maharashtra municipal Corporation Act. Further as per a July 2007 approval of the TMC general body, a cost of not more than Rs 50 per sqfeet is to be recovered from the owners of these structures, he said. "The auditors have pointed out that while the amount was spent there is no such record of the particulars of the expenditure in that specific ward. They had asked the department to furnish details of the expenditure and also recover the amount from the structure owners. In other words, the administration has apparently failed to recover the amount spent for the demolition drives from the owners of such structures or even of it has done so, it has failed to present details of the same before the panel of auditors," informed a civic official. Meanwhile, activists have questioned lenient approach of the administration towards the poor recovery of the department from the owners whose structures were demolished or pulled down. A RTI query filed by a city-based activist had revealed that nearly Rs 14crore had been spent by the administration over the last nine years in demolishing structures within the limits. "The corporation has spent a considerable amount of the taxpayers money on the demolition drives but seems to have failed to recover them. The administration must pull up its socks and show the same alertness in recovery as it does when dealing with the common man," lamented activist Sanjeev Datta.

Under the revised amnesty scheme, the Thane Municipal Corporation (TMC) has squashed the penalty charges by several folds. The clauses for getting OC have been eased so that large number of buildings in the city can benefit. The TMC has given six months to the buildings to apply for OC under the scheme. More than 80 per cent buildings in the city do not have occupation certificate. Out of these, most of them are illegal and not eligible for one. There are more than a thousand legal buildings across the city which do not have OC owing to rules flouted by the builder or architect. Such residents are forced to pay 1.5% additional property tax as they are tagged illegal. Thus, the amnesty scheme was introduced in March 2015. Under the scheme, even individual flat owners can get an OC by paying a fine as it was given to an entire building and not individuals.A TMC official requesting anonymity said, “We have amended the scheme and reduced the rates. As per the old amnesty scheme, the OC was given to those buildings wherein the plans were sanctioned and the certificate was not given because of some minor violations by the builder or architect. However, in most cases there were additional constructions or alterations in the building or individual flats which we did not consider in old scheme. In the new scheme, we will give OC to buildings if the alterations adhere to the legal framework and do not affect the structural stability.”He added that the societies can purchase additional FSI or TDR from them to regularise the structures and get OC. The municipal corporation claimed that there are more than 150 applicants which did not get OC in the previous scheme due to its tedious clauses. The official said, “The problem with the earlier scheme was the high penalty — Rs25,000 for flats up to 40 sqm area and Rs50,000 for 60 sqm.”The penalty was calculated for each day from the day of possession. In the new rate, the fine will be Rs5,000 for 30 sqm, Rs10,000 for 40sqm and Rs25,000 up to 60sqm. “Even middle and lower income group families can take advantage of the scheme,” he said.The application for the amnesty scheme will be accepted till June 30. Residents can submit the application in the town planning department between 3pm and 5pm on any working day. more from mumbai Spark in AC?unit started fire that killed 4 in Marol, say fire officials Jan 11, 2018 00:51 IST Saki Naka fire: Mumbai civic chief suspends sanitary inspector  Jan 11, 2018 00:29 IST Where it all began: Learning innovations through history Promotional Feature Recommended for you IndiaWorldBusinessEducationAutosReal estate OpinionAnalysisColumnsEditorialsAuthors CitiesDelhiGurgaonNoidaMumbaiBhopalChandigarhDehradunIndoreJaipurKolkataLucknowPatnaRanchiPune SportsCricketFootballTennisOthers EntertainmentMovie reviewsBollywoodHollywoodRegional moviesWorld cinemaTVMusicTabloid LifestyleSex & relationshipFitnessFashion & trendsArt & cultureTravelBooksBrunch TechTech ReviewsGadgets PhotosVideosEpaperinteractivesPunjab LivemintLivehindustanShineHTcampusDesimartiniStudymateEnglishmateHTsyndicationbridge school Follow us on: Newsletter Register with Hindustan Times to get best news and articles Copyright © HT Media Limited All rights reserved.

Ever busy Ghodbunder Road in Thane was once a route for Arabian horses Ever busy Ghodbunder Road in Thane was once a route for Arabian horses Mangala Kamble (48) residing near the Hiranandani Estate for 15 years, said, “Over the past decade there has been increased connectivity. While it is true the area has become crowded, we now have buses every minute and travel has become much better.” Written by Mohamed Thaver | Mumbai | Published: January 11, 2018 4:34 am The GB Road connects Thane to the northern suburbs of Mumbai. Janak Rathod Top News FIR against Tribune reporter over Aadhaar data breach storyPadmavati becomes 'Padmavat', set to clash with Akshay Kumar's PadMan on January 25Photos: Anushka Sharma back on the sets of Shah Rukh Khan's Zero after dreamy weddingIT IS a road that once played a crucial role in Indo-Arab trade and later the Portuguese used it to monopolise sea routes in the Arabian Sea. The humble Ghodbunder Road, the state highway 42 or as shops on the road refer to it, GB Road, that now connects Thane to the northern suburbs of Mumbai like Borivali, at one point acted as a bridge between distant cultures. At present, the pothole-ridden road, dreaded by motorists and surrounded by housing societies, is a far cry from what was once a road flanked by lush green fields and a rich flora and fauna. Thane-based historian Sadashiv Tetvilkar, who has authored 10 books including those on forts of Thane, talks about how Ghodbunder was called ‘Ghodegaon’. “There were several empires that fought wars. Horses, especially strong ones, were a precious commodity in the backdrop of these wars. The Persian horses came from Arab countries and landed at the port (bunder) at the west end of this road. Hence, it initially came to be known as ‘Ghodegaon’ (horse village). It was around the time of Chhatrapati Shivaji in the later centuries that the road got named after the port, and was called Ghodbunder Road,” Tetvilkar told The Indian Express. In fact, such was the premium on horses then that when traveller Marco Polo visited India, he wrote about how the kings ruling Thane had a pact with pirates that they should not attack any ships carrying horses. Tetvilkar adds, “After a point, only ships carrying horses were harboured at the port. Given the importance of the Ghodbunder port, several merchants had divided their ships into three parts, with the lowest sections being used to keep horses. Horses that would land at Ghodbunder would then be sent to Kalyan, Vasai, Naneghat among other places. It was the central point for trading horses.” The Ghodbunder fort located at Ghodbunder village at the west end of the approximately 20 km road that links both the Eastern Express and the Western Express Highways came much later during the Portuguese period. After the Portuguese came to Thane in 1530, they constructed the Ghodbunder fort. The fort was ready in 1730 and the Portuguese, historians say, greatly benefited by it. “They would demand ships passing from the spot to pay Octroi. As a result of the Portuguese conquest of the coast, the Arab trade with India through this port almost stopped,” Tetvilkar said. The Marathas under Chimaji Appa later besieged the fort and took it from the Portuguese in 1737, he added. Horse trade at the port stopped soon after. Locals say that till 1950, it was only a kuchcha road with residents of centuries old villages like Waghbil, Majhiwada, Patlipada, Ghodbunder, Kolshet and Kasarwadavli using bullock carts for transport. “The area also had considerable plants like cashew, mangoes that were brought in by the Portuguese. There were also snakes and scorpions. The area was rich in flora and fauna,” the historian adds. Tetvilkar says that a pucca road was laid in 1950. “The Corporation was established in 1983 until when Thane only comprised of the railway station to the Castle Mill junction on the west end and Kalwa to the north end. However, later Ghodbunder road too was included in Thane and there were parcels of land ready for sale,” he says. Mangala Kamble (48) residing near the Hiranandani Estate for 15 years, said, “Over the past decade there has been increased connectivity. While it is true the area has become crowded, we now have buses every minute and travel has become much better.” Subrot Sikdar (30), a Mira Road resident who drives down the Ghodbunder road often, said, “Heavy vehicles use the Ghodbunder road. There are some sharp turns where the heavy vehicles cause a lot of traffic. Also, at the Mira Road end of the Ghodbunder road, a bridge is being constructed since a long time. As a result of that, they shut traffic on one side, at times for over 15 minutes, that leads to traffic jams.” For all the latest Mumbai News, download Indian Express App More Top News India vs South Africa 1st Test: South Africa beat India by 72 runs Section 377: Supreme Court will revisit its order banning gay sex; societal morality changes with time No Comments.

2018-01-09458 hotels in Thane get 15-day ultimatum - The Hindu
458 hotels in Thane get 15-day ultimatum JANUARY 10, 2018 00:22 IST UPDATED: JANUARY 10, 2018 00:22 IST Thane: The Thane Municipal Corporation (TMC) has issued a 15-day ultimatum to 458 hotels to obtain a no objection certificate from the fire department, failing which their licence will be cancelled. Sunil Chavan, TMC Commissioner, said following the Kamla Mills fire, the civic body started checking the fire compliance at hotels. “The 458 hotels have been issued a notice along with a checklist.” Chief Fire Officer Shashikant Kale said, “The checklist has standard instructions like no heavy construction above the kitchen, stocking of cylinders depending on the space and structures, and proper emergency exits along with radium strips leading to them.” Mr. Chavan said the TMC was approached by hotel associations requesting for time to adhere to the fire safety norms. “We decided to give them time, as shutting them down immediately would lead to losses,” he said. Meanwhile, Sandeep Pachange, MNS chief for Thane region, in a letter to the TMC Commissioner, has demanded that the 15-day compliance period be done away with and action be initiated immediately. “I agree that hoteliers have to earn their livelihood and run their households, but they can’t be playing with the lives of customers, and of course their own lives are at stake. I have mentioned in the letter that instead of shutting them down, they can just close the serving side, and allow only the takeaway facilities until the end of 15 days,” he said.

Thane court rejects Kaskar’s plea for homemade food THANE, JANUARY 09, 2018 12:34 IST UPDATED: JANUARY 09, 2018 12:50 IST The jailed brother of Dawood Ibrahim made the request owing to his ailments A special Maharashtra Control of Organised Crime Act (MCOCA) court here has rejected the plea of fugitive don Dawood Ibrahim’s brother Iqbal Kaskar, arrested in an extortion case, to allow him to have homemade food in jail due to his various ailments. Special Judge (MCOCA) A.S. Bhaisare observed that Kaskar’s doctor had not prescribed any special diet for him, therefore, his application was liable to be rejected. He said Kaskar, lodged at present in the Thane District Central Jail, had not made any special ground to grant his application. “One cannot act as per his own wish and choice or desire,” the judge said in a recent order. Kaskar, in his application, had requested the court to allow him to have the facility of homemade food in judicial custody on the ground that he was suffering from diabetes, blood pressure and giddiness, and undergoing treatment. He said he was required to have home cooked food to maintain better health. The convict also argued that previously, when he was in custody in a case at the Central Prison in Mumbai from 2003 to 2007, he was provided with the facility (of home food) and that he never misused the liberty granted to him. The prosecution opposed his application saying there were all facilities of food and medicines on the jail premises. The Crime Branch of the Thane Police had arrested Kaskar along with others on September 18 last year for allegedly threatening a city-based builder in the name of Dawood Ibrahim and extorting money as well as taking over four flats. A case was filed under IPC Sections 384 (punishment for extortion), 386 (extortion by putting a person in fear of death or grievous hurt) and 34 (acts done by several persons in furtherance of common intention) at the Kasarvadavali police station. He was also booked under the stringent anti-organised crime law MCOCA. Kaskar, who was deported from the United Arab Emirates in 2003, is said to be operating his brother’s real estate business in Mumbai.

The officer said the matter came to light after the woman, who claimed to be the wife of the constable and currently working as a nurse in Ambernath, approached higher officials against her husband. During the inquiry, police found that the constable first married in 1986 and subsequently in 1992, 1993, 1995, 1998, 2007 and in 2014, the officer said. He said the woman who approached the police claimed that the policeman married her in 1992 and has cheated her by marrying other women. Police found that two out of seven 'wives' of the constable had died over a period of time. According to the officer, the women the constable married were all residents of Thane or adjoining areas. Police are now trying to find out the reason behind the constable 'marrying' multiple times and how he managed to keep the marriages a secret.

2018-01-08Centre announces Rs 1000 cr for inland water transport in Thane - Daily News & Analysis
Centre announces Rs 1,000 cr for inland water transport in Thane An inland water transport system may soon be a reality in Thane region as the Centre has announced funds of Rs 1,000 crore for the same. The amount will be disbursed in phases and the first installment of Rs 500 crore is likely to be approved in February. This may resolve the commute woes of Thanekars who often travel in over-crowded public transport. In an important development, the union transport minister announced funds for inland water transport (IWT) in Thane. "Nitin Gadkari informed us that Rs 500 crore of the total Rs 1,000 crore has been allotted for IWT in Thane," said Rajan Vichare, member of parliament from Thane. The first installment of the funds will be used to develop the first phase of the 52.5-km of IWT. This will cover the route of Vasai-Mira Bhayandar-Thane-Nagla Bunder-Kolshet-Kasheli-Anjurdiva-Parsik-Dombivli (Thakurli). The proposal for this IWT was presented to the minister by Vichare and TMC Commissioner Sanjeev Jaiswal almost a year ago. It has finally taken shape due to the efforts of Jaiswal and Vichare. "This makes Thane the first municipal corporation to propose IWT and make use of the creek to connect all the other corporations like Dombivli, Kalyan, Mira Bhayandar," says Vichare. "Yes, there has been this announcement for IWT from the Center and the amount will be approved next month," confirmed Jaiswal. The ambitious IWT project will lessen the hardships of citizens residing in Thane, Dombivli, Kalyan and Mira Bhayandar who currently depend on the congested railway network. They often risk their lives and commute using the railways to reach their destination. This is also expected to reduce their travel time by 40 per cent while commuting to and from these places. "If I have to commute from Thane to Mira Road by bus or auto rickshaw, it takes me almost one to one-and-a-half hours. But I have read that IWT will easily lessen my commute time," says Vinayak Jadhav from Naupada, Thane.

2018-01-08Monkey chokes to death on wires atop building terrace - Times of India
Monkey chokes to death on wires atop building terrace Jan 8, 2018, 23:50 IST THANE: An adult monkey which strayed from the Yeoor Forest onto the terrace of a housing society in Thane's Lokmanya Nagar area on Friday afternoon allegedly got its neck entangled in the wires at the top of the terrace and choked to death. The tragic incident came to light late Friday afternoon, when the Thane forest helpline received a call from the residents of the Shree Siddhivinayak Park Society, informing about a monkey seen dangling from some wires and ropes at the top of their building. "When we rushed to the spot, we saw an adult monkey hanging a little below the terrace of the four-storey building with wires and roped entangled around its neck. Our team went to the terrace and carefully detangled the mesh and freed the monkey. However, the monkey was already dead by then. We then took it to the Sanjay Gandhi National Park for an autopsy," said range forest officer, Dilip Deshmukh to TOI. While the forest officials, on the basis of the autopsy report and preliminary investigation, have pointed out that this death was an accidental case, wildlife rescuers here believe that timely vigilance could have got the monkey the required help. Meanwhile, Aditya Patil, from wildlife NGO, said, "In the time when the monkey was fighting for its life, it must have screamed out. If the residents in the vicinity were vigilant and informed a nearby NGO or the TMC or the forest department and sought help for its rescue then, it could have survived."

2018-01-08Court rejects Iqbal Kaskar's plea for home food - Times of India
Court rejects Iqbal Kaskar’s plea for home food Updated: Jan 9, 2018, 00:15 IST THANE: The special MCOCA court on Monday rejected Iqbal Kaskar's plea to allow him to savour home food on the grounds that he is a patient of blood pressure and also a diabetic. Kaskar, arrested in an extortion racket, is the younger brother of gangster Dawood Ibrahim and is lodged in the Thane central jail. Special MCOCA judge AS Bhaisare observed the doctor treating Kaskar had not prescribed any special diet to the accused so there was no question of granting his request of home food.Kaskar in his application claimed that due to his ailments, home cooked food is advisable to keep him healthy. He also submitted that previously, when he was in custody in earlier case at Mumbai, Central Prison in 2003 to 2007, he was provided with the facility of home food and has never misused the liberty granted to him. The prosecution, however, vehemently objected the plea and pointed out that the edible food is provided in the jail, besides there are other facilities like canteen and bakery foods which are available inside. The prosecutor said they have visited the jail premises and tasted the food during inspection. After hearing both the prosecution and defence, the judge in his order pointed, " At the most, attempt to reduce the gravity of choice of food of individual can be made," the judge pointed out in the order. Also, accused nowhere stated about the quality of the food. On the contrary, as per advise of medical officer prisoners are provided with milk, eggs considering his health health problems, the judge said. Moreover, Kaskar said he is suffering from diabetes, blood pressure and giddiness and is undergoing treatment and doctors have prescribed medicine but had not prescribed any special diet and has not made out any special ground to grant his application.

2018-01-08Thane cop, who married 7 women, suspended - Mumbai Mirror
THANE COP, WHO MARRIED 7 WOMEN, SUSPENDED Updated: Jan 9, 2018, 05.15 AM IST The matter came to light when his second wife registered a complaint against him at the Manpada police station. A constable attached with Manpada police station has been suspended by the Thane Police. The reason? Polygamy. Constable Suryakant Kadam married seven women over three decades. The matter recently came to light when his second wife, Prachita, who is still married to him, filed a complaint against Kadam. Four of his other wives gave statements supporting Prachita’s claim, said the Thane Police According to the police, Kadam’s first marriage – a short-lived affair -- was to a lady named Swati, in 1986, in Kalyan. The Ratnagiri native met Prachita in 1991 while investigating a break-in at her home in Kalyan.“Suryakant had visited our home to carry out a panchnama,” said Prachita. “We fell in love and as he had already divorced his first wife, we decided to get married.” At the time Prachita, a mother of two children, was also a divorcee, like Kadam. The couple got married in December 1992, but a year later, Prachita said she learnt of her husband’s third marriage. “He got married to a person named Kantabai in December 1993,” said Prachita. Over the next 25-odd years, Kadam, said senior Thane police officials, tied the knot with Sushma (1995, after Kantabai passed away), Swapnali (1998, after Sushma’s death), Hemlata (2007) and Vanita (2014). Most of the women he got married belonged to Kalyan, Ambernath and Dombivali, places where he was posted. The police said that they did not find anything suspicious about the deaths of his two wives. Prachita, who filed the complaint in late 2016, told Mirror that she decided to act after coming to know about his seventh marriage. “I have gone through a lot. I warned him several times but he never listened to me. He still comes to my house and assaults me, and has been especially angry over the last year because I complained to his superiors. I don’t want him to lose his job, but the way he is behaving with women, I thought enough is enough.” A senior police official from Manpada police station told Mirror that most of Kadam’s relationships were with women who were estranged from their husbands or divorced. “He has brought them property in the area. In a way, he has kept his promise since he would tell them that he would ensure they were well looked after if they married him.” “We will soon be carrying out a detailed investigation into the whole matter. His wife’s (Prachita’s) preliminary complaint is substantiated by documents and we have suspended him,” said Dr Sanjay Shinde, deputy commissioner of police, Kalyan Division. When Mirror got in touch with Kadam, he said that people were spreading lies about him. “All the allegations against me are untrue,” he said.

2018-01-08Serial conman held for marital fraud - Times of India
Serial conman held for marital fraud Jan 9, 2018, 00:41 IST THANE: A much-married conman, Abhay Gawat (42), from Sindhudurg was arrested by the Kalwa police for tying a knot with a woman and cheating her and her family of Rs 20 lakh. Gawat had told the woman's family that he was employed with the Maharashtra Housing and Area Development Authority (Mhada). Gawat met the woman on a matrimonial website. "He left his first wife and married a divorcee having two children. He married the woman in Kalwa and but didn't disclose his history. They married in a simple ceremony, but Gawat knocked off Rs 20 lakh from the woman and her relatives," said a police officer. The Kalwa police nabbed him recently from Vasari in Thane district and found that he has cheated several people. "He would identify himself as former chief minister Narayan Rane's son-in-law or Maharashtra minister Pankaja Munde's cousin to his target victims. He told his unsuspecting victims that he owned a oil factory," the officer added. During the probe, it transpired that he had cheated a senior railway officer of Rs 72 lakh on the pretext of starting an shelter for senior citizens. "We are probing the case from all the angles. But a primary probe reveals that the accused met the railway officer and even showed him a plot of land where he was planning to build an old age home. Through his contacts, the officer paid Rs 72 lakh," said the officer. Gawat fled after getting the cash. "We suspect that Gawat has cheated many people and we expect his victims to approach us in the days to come," said a police official.

Use shrouds or bury in Mumbai: Thane church The lack of burial space has once again come to cause inconvenience to the Christian community of Thane. Six parishes in Thane were asked to opt for either shroud burial or shift bodies to Mumbai. St. John the Baptist church on December 27, 2017, issued a notice to six parishes in Thane asking them to stop burying their departed loved ones in coffins. "In view of the non-decomposition of bodies, we strictly recommend you to instruct your parishioners to have shroud burials, otherwise we will have to move the bodies for burials to Mumbai and that will only increase cost and other difficulties," reads the notice by Father Gerry Fernandes, parish priest from St John, Thane. Thane has a Christian population of over 50,000 with only one cemetery at Teen petrol pump. There are only 60 to 70 graves in the cemetery and it takes over 18 months for a body to decompose when buried in a coffin. The order has caused confusion among parishioners. "Last Sunday Father Jerry from St John church told us that there is no place for burials here and we will have to take bodies to Mumbai. This will cause a lot of hardship to our community members. Hope there is some way out," said Fredrick Sequeira, Kalwa. This means that if one has to take a body for burial to Mumbai they need to take police permission from Thane, a no-objection certificate (NOC)) from Mumbai police, permission at the toll naka along with the added cost of travel. Even Melwyn Fernandes, joint secretary, Our Lady of Mercy church, Pokharan road said "Excluding our church, all have been asked to shift burials to Mumbai. How can that be possible? The situation could have been totally different had they made the new cemetery that was promised to us by the TMC." "Coffins made of teakwood and other material take three years to decompose and there is limited space in our cemetery. Moreover we have observed that modern medicine has also delayed the process of decomposition," added Father Jerry. He said that the church is looking at various options so that the deceased get a dignified burial. "We tried injecting the earth with medicines to fasten the process of decomposition but it failed. So now we will try to renew earth in the cemetery to see if it helps. Till then shroud burial is the only available option or people have to take their departed loved ones to Mumbai. In my personal opinion cremation is also another option which is permitted by the church," he adds. This announcement will affect six churches in Thane - Lady of Mercy church, St Thomas church in Vartak Nagar, San Jose church Srinagar, St Lawrence church at D'souzawadi, St Anthony church at Kalwa and Holy Trinity church.

Vasant Davkhare laid to rest in Thane, political leaders pay their respects Updated: Jan 06, 2018 01:20 IST Once a key Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) leader in Thane, Vasant Davkhare’s political future was cut short because of health complications that led to his demise on Thursday night. A close associate of party president Sharad Pawar, Davkhare had close friends across the political spectrum. He also shared cordial relations with former Sena chief, late Bal Thackeray. This was why he was elected the Member of Legislative Council (MLC) from the Thane local constituency for 24 consecutive years, despite the fact that Shiv Sena ruled the municipal corporation. Davkhare passed away on Thursday at Bombay Hospital, after a long battle of around 45 days. He was suffering from renal failure and heart ailments, and had been on ventilator support. He was laid to rest with full state honour at the Jawahar Baugh crematorium in Thane on Friday evening. Senior leaders from various political parties reached Thane to pay their last respects, including chief minister Devendra Fadnavis, NCP chief Sharad Pawar and Sena chief Uddhav Thackeray among others. Davkhare was among the first few leaders who resigned from Congress to join NCP after it was formed in 1999. “Feeling sad as I have lost a loyal and close associate, who has left an imprint in public life with his work. His ideology was beyond controversy and thus, was popular among all the political parties,” Pawar said. Fadnavis said, “Davkhare was a friend to everyone and had no enemies, his loss will be greatly felt. He efficiently handled the proceedings of the legislative council. He never expressed his sorrow and had a permanent smile on his face. I have worked closely with him for many years, and have many fond memories of him.” Coming from a family of vegetable vendors from Shirur in Pune district, Davkhare joined politics in 1986 and was elected as a Congress corporator from Thane Municipal Corporation (TMC). He got elected as the mayor of Thane the very next year, despite the fact that Shiv Sena was in majority. He was then elected as member of the legislative council for the first time from Thane local body constituency in 1992. In 1998, he was elected the deputy chairman of the legislative council, and held the position for 18 years. “It’s a record in the history of the legislative council, that a person held the post of deputy chairman for three consecutive terms,” said Anant Kalse, principal secretary, state legislature. In 2010, he got re-elected unopposed as the deputy chairman of the legislative council, after Shiv Sena withdrew nomination of its candidate Ramesh Jadhav. “His health was not supporting him and although he liked to be proactive, Davkhare was forced to lay low. He has also got a kidney transplant, but because of his frequent travelling, he suffered several infections,” said Munaf Hakim, senior party leader and former chairman of state minorities commission.

2018-01-04No radioactive waste leakage into Thane creek from BARC: Government - Economic Times
No radioactive waste leakage into Thane creek from BARC: Government Jan 04, 2018, 06.26 PM IST NEW DELHI: There is no leakage of radioactive waste into the Thane creek from the Bhabha Atomic Research Centre (BARC) at Trombay, Union minister Jitendra Singh told the Rajya Sabha today. An environmental surveillance programme is carried out regularly at Thane creek for the measurement of various man- made radionuclides in different matrices like water, biota and sediment, the minister of state, who holds multiple portfolios, said in a written reply to a question. "There is no leakage of radioactive waste in Thane Creek from BARC facilities at Trombay. All effluents are treated to bring the discharge levels well below the stringent regulatory limits set by Atomic Energy Regulatory Board (AERB) before they are discharged from the BARC facilities to the Thane Creek," he said. From the analysis, it is observed that the levels of radioactivity in the creek are "particularly the same as that of natural background", he added. "Hence, there is no hazard to the health of general public and to the environment due to discharges from BARC facilities," he said.

2018-01-04Godrej PE arm may buy new Vernon's IT Park at Thane for Rs 400 crore - Economic Times
Godrej PE arm may buy new Vernon’s IT Park at Thane for Rs 400 crore Jan 04, 2018, 11.14 PM IST Godrej Fund Management, the private equity real estate arm of Godrej Group, is in advanced talks with US-based private equity firm New Vernon Capital to buy its IT park at Thane for Rs 400 crore, said two persons familiar with the development. The project G: Corp Tech Park on Ghodbunder Road in Thane was built in 2010 by realty developer G Corp and was later acquired by New Vernon Capital. The project has a total built-up area of around 7.50 lakh sq ft with a floor plate of 70,000 sq ft .Of the total 6 lakh sq ft of leasable space, around 98 per cent is leased and occupied at present. "Both the parties have entered the last lap of the deal conclusion. Currently, the final leg of due diligence is going on and the deal is expected to be closed anytime soon," said one of the persons mentioned above. Currently, monthly lease rentals at this IT park are about Rs 55-55 per sq ft, which takes the annual rentals income to Rs 36 crore to Rs 40 crore. Based on the current rent generation potential of the property and the final consideration amount, the transaction is valued at around 8 per cent capitalization rate. Capitalization rate, or cap rate, is the ratio of net operating income of the property to its asset value. Godrej Fund Management used to be part of Godrej Properties earlier and has recently been shifted under the Godrej Group. Both Godrej Fund Management and New Vernon Capital declined to comment on the story. It may be recalled that more than two years ago, New Vernon Capital had exited Chennai-based IT Park SP Infocity by selling its entire stake to Canada Pension Plan Investment Board for over $220 million. SP Infocity was a joint venture between New Vernon and an affiliate of Shapoorji Pallonji in which the New Jerseybased private equity firm held 49 per cent . Indian real estate is witnessing a robust rise in transactions as both foreign and domestic institutional investors are infusing more funds into the sector.

Awhad said the commissioner has asked the Additional Commissioner and Inspector (Cybel Cell) to initiate "action as per law and to register and investigate the offence." In the memorandum to the police, Ahwad pointed out that on a Facebook page titled "Fadnavis for Maharashtra", an individual by the name Avadhut Prakashrao Shinde had made "objectionable" remarks about Pawar. "Such comments about a national leader is nothing but an insult to the state.

HC warns Thane civic body against violating waste mgmt rules Published: 04th January 2018 09:16 PM Last Updated: 04th January 2018 09:17 PM Mumbai, Jan 4 (PTI) The Bombay High Court today cautioned the Thane Municipal Corporation (TMC) against violating the Centre's solid waste management rules. It said if the TMC failed to comply with the rules and its previous orders on the issue, it would not hesitate in passing an order prohibiting any new construction in Thane. A bench, headed by Justice A S Oka, reminded the civic body that in March 2016, the court had passed such an order for the city of Mumbai. At that time, the court had banned all new constructions in the city until the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) resolved the problem of rampant dumping of solid waste and construction debris at landfill sites. The bench was hearing a petition filed by some residents of Thane raising objection to dumping of waste by the municipal corporation in non-designated areas, especially in the coastal zones, and mangrove-rich sites near Davale village in Thane, adjoining Mumbai. The petition was filed through their advocate Sandesh Patil. Patil informed the court that there had been no compliance with the new solid waste management rules which were brought into effect in 2016 by the Union government. "Due to non-compliance, we had banned construction in Mumbai. It seems we might have to adopt the same stand (for Thane)," said Justice Oka. The TMC, meanwhile, said it was yet to find suitable and adequate land to set up a waste processing plant. The court, however, said if the civic body required more time to find land to set up the plant, it should file an application. "But it has to be done soon. You can't keep dumping in the mangrove area," the court said. PTI AYA RSY SC .

Thane birders flock to wetlands to take part in water-bird census Updated: Jan 4, 2018, 23:29 IST THANE: Armed with their binoculars, digital SLR cameras and environmental journals, hundreds of avifauna experts, birding enthusiasts and nature photographers across the lake-city are already gearing up to participate in the pan-Asia water-bird census between Jaunary 6 and 21. In an attempt to gauge the population of the local as well as migrant water birds in addition to the most threatened wetland ecosystems which they thrive, the Bombay Natural History Society (BNHS) has organised the Asian Water-birds Census, in coordination with Wetlands International, between January 6 and 21, 2018 this year. As part of this census, participating birding enthusiasts are expected to venture in the wetlands in their areas and monitor the count of the different species of water birds they find, and submit this list as well as details of the condition of the wetland, the source, salinity and pollution levels of the water that passes through it, etc, to the BNHS by the end of the next month.While there has been a growing awareness of the destruction and threat to a few wetlands including the one in the Thane Creek area, the Sewri mudflats, the Bhandup Pumping station area and so on, these pockets are get to find their spot in Ramsar list of wetlands of International importance, and through this initiative, these scientists aim to analyse the data gathered and propose solutions to add these sites to the list, and suggest ways to conserve this highly threatened ecosystem to the government. Dr P Sathiyaselvam, a Scientist at BNHS said, "The Asian Waterbird Count, primarily carried out by amateur and professional ornithologists, government and non-governmental agencies, has been successful in providing substantial information on status of wetlands and distribution of waterbirds over the past years. This data obtained will be valuable not only in conserving waterbirds habitats at the national level but also the wetlands under the Central Asian Flyway at international level." "Monitoring these water-bird numbers and wetlands plays an importance role in understanding the threats they face and the reason for the decline of water-birds around the world. The rapid urbanisation has resulted in the growing pollution of the wetlands here. This is bound to have an impact on the bird species that cannot tolerate such pollutants. Pockets like Uran, Sewri, Thane Creek and Bhandup Pumping station still have a few wetlands that house the greater and lesser flamingos, the Gadwalls, Shelducks and other such water-birds. We need to ensure that they are protected," added another BNHS official. Citizen birders here believe that initiatives like the bird census and eco-drives will help conserve the wetlands an the eco-systems they comprise.

Services are running uninterrupted on Central Railway as of now" says Chief Public Relations Officer (CPRO) Central Railway.Huge security forces have been deployed in Ghatkopar's Ramabai Colony and Eastern Express Highway to keep a check on any case of violence. Violence spilled over to adjoining parts of Maharashtra after clashes broke out between the Dalits and alleged right-wing groups on January 1, during the bicentenary celebration of the Bhima-Koregaon battle near Pune.The right-wing groups were objecting to the observance of 'Victory Day' since they considered it to be an anti-national celebration. Both RSS and BJP are being accused of instigating the violence by opposition leaders. In the battle, which was fought between the British East India Company, containing Dalits in its infantry, and the Peshwas, who were upper-caste Brahmins, at Koregaon Bhima on January 1, 1818, the Marathas ultimately withdrew. Since then, the lower-caste communities have been viewing it as a symbolic victory for themselves. The clashes broke out at Bhima-Koregaon when people were headed towards the war memorial in the village, about 30 km from Pune city, the police had said.Dalit groups were celebrating the bicentenary of the Bhima-Koregaon battle, which the forces of the British East India Company had won over those of the Peshwa. Dalit leaders commemorate the British victory as it is believed that soldiers from the Mahar community -- then considered untouchables -- were part of the East India Company's forces. The Peshwas were Brahmins and the victory was seen as a symbol of assertiveness by Dalits.

Corporators seek CM help claiming administration overriding general body's decisions Updated: Jan 2, 2018, 00:10 IST THANE: Corporators from the Thane municipal corporation are planning to seek intervention of the chief minister to stop the repeated attempts by the administration to override the decisions of the general body. Elected representatives from the BJP and the NCP have cited various instances wherein the administration has reportedly gone ahead with the projects that were initially rejected by the general body. The netas, apparently unable to gain an upper hand in the tussle, now have made an emotional appeal to the chief minister asking him to ensure the democracy in the Thane city governance is retained. The rift between the administration and elected representatives in Thane has been widening since late and out in the open with each of the two sides trying to outwit each other in an apparent bid to gain supremacy. There have been several incidents in the recent past where the rift between the two sides of governance has been locked in a bitter duel of words and action. The hostility between the two parties apparently was fuelled after the administration reportedly decided to purchase bullet bikes for the Thane police even after the House had unanimously rejected the plan. The administration had hinted of going ahead with its plan using the commissioner's discretionary powers to sanction developmental works that further irked the corporators. Observers hint the netas objected to the plan after being wary of the closeness between the police and municipal chief and raised a valid point in the expenditure on the police which comes under the state home department. "What is the need for the civic administration to build police stations and present bikes to the police? Isn't the home department equipped enough to do the same," questioned a BJP corporator.

2018-01-01'Awareness, corrective measures by railways help reduce mishaps' - Times of India
‘Awareness, corrective measures by railways help reduce mishaps’ Updated: Jan 2, 2018, 00:06 IST THANE: Continuous awareness about safe travel and adequate corrective measures taken by the railway and police administration has apparently helped reduce the number of mishaps on the Thane railway network with the figures registering a three year low in 2017. The railway administration has attributed the same to corrective action like sealing access points to the tracks, adding shuttle services and introducing more bridges at stations. While Thane saw nearly 391 mishaps in 2015, the numbers dropped to 323 last year, reveals mishaps statistics uploaded by the Mumbai railway police on the website Shodh. Likewise, the railway police stations in neighboring Kalyan also saw a considerable drop in the numbers from 409 to 367 in two years while that in Kurla which is dubbed as one of the dangerous zones on the Mumbai railway network also saw a reduction in numbers. Railway officials said they have been working on sealing porous points along the tracks, providing fences between tracks, increasing the number of bridges and escalators to discourage those crossing tracks. Also, the number of services have been increased over the years in addition to raising height of platforms as well in addition to making continuous awareness campaigns about safe travel, said officials. "We have been working on introducing more bridges at Thane and Mumbra stations in addition to improving facilities at other suburban stretches as well. We have introduced more shuttle services on the suburban sector between Thane, Kalyan and beyond in the last few months to match the rise in number of commuters," said a senior railway official from Mumbai. Meanwhile, activists say these numbers aren't anything to feel proud of adding that the railways should instead work towards ensuring a zero mishap target. There are several segments like the Thane-Kalwa-Digha stretch where commuters are forced to walk down the tracks while even the Kharegaon and Diva level crossing gates sees several mishaps, lament activists. Deputy commissioner of police, railways, Samadhan Pawar said his department has been actively working to point out and plug access points to curb mishaps. "We have been studying the pattern of mishaps and the spots where maximum track crossing is happening and have recommended corrective action," said Pawar.
