Share Via Email Published: 15th September 2019 02:17 PM  |   Last Updated: 15th September 2019 02:17 PM   |  A+A A- For representational purposes By PTI THANE: A court here in Maharashtra has awarded seven years' rigorous imprisonment to a 76-year-old man for sodomising a minor boy in 2017. Special POCSO court judge S B Bahalkar, in his order issued on September 9, also imposed a fine of Rs 3,000 on the accused, Kisan Ingale, a jobless man living on a footpath in Vashi area of neighbouring Navi Mumbai. Additional public prosecutor Varsha Chandane told the court that on January 18, 2017, the accused called the boy, then aged six, who was playing with his friends in their building complex, to a secluded place in the area where he sodomised him. When the boy returned home, his mother found him uneasy. When she inquired with him, the child informed her about the incident. The boy's parents later found the accused on a footpath nearby and took him to police. The accused was subsequently arrested and booked under Indian Penal Code Section 377 (unnatural offences) and relevant provisions of the Protection of Children from Sexual Offences (POCSO) Act. The judge, after hearing both the sides, said, "On examination of the evidence, I am satisfied that the prosecution has proved the offence against the accused". While it is the defence of the accused that he has been falsely implicated in the case, "I find no reason to disbelieve the evidence of the victim". "Hence, the accused is liable to be convicted," the judge said in his order.

Kennedy Jr. Thinks Thane Eugene Cesar Killed His Father And Is Out To Prove It like us on facebook If you 'like' us, we'll LOVE you!Photo: GettyRebecca Jane StokesBlogger Entertainment And News September 15, 2019Was he the real assassin?The Kennedy family is an American dynasty. Some might say that they are one of the closest things we have to a royal family. But all their fame and prestige has not saved them from serious heartache. First, there was the tragic assassination of John F. Kennedy, and then, the assassination of Robert F. Kennedy, and that was only the beginning. While Robert has been dead for years, he has not been forgotten. Who is Thane Eugene Cesar? He's the security guard who stood behind RFK when he was killed, and if you believe RFK's son, he is the man who truly killed his father. 1. Who Is Thane Eugene Cesar? On the day when Robert F. Kennedy, brother to JFK and aspiring presidential candidate was assassinated in Los Angeles, California, a man named Sirhan Sirhan was arrested. Sirhan was tried and convicted of the crime, but now RFK's son Robert F. Kennedy Jr. is speaking out because he doesn't believe it was Sirhan at all. Instead, Kennedy believes it was the security guard, Thane Eugene Cesar, who was standing behind his father when the bullet struck. Kennedy shared this news on September 11th, 2019 literally minutes after he learned that Cesar died, sharing what he believed to be the truth on Instagram. RELATED: New Details About Robert F. Kennedy's Assassin Sirhan Sirhan Stabbed In Prison2. The Assassination of RFKWhen RFK was shot, it was a terrible tragedy for the country. In addition to being a prominent politician with a serious shot at the presidency, Kennedy was already a former Attorney General who made the fight against poverty for Americans one of his guiding principles. For the Kennedy family, RFK represented a chance to keep the sun shining on their dynasty. His loss was one more blow to the family. Robert F. Kennedy Jr. recently went to visit Sirhan Sirhan in prison, apparently curious and unsatisfied with the man's conviction. His own unease with how the case was solved has people looking back at the case once more. RFK Jr. exposes his father’s assassin as Lockheed Employee Thane Eugene Caesar...! #RFK https://t.co/Oog8en4XY7— Dark Journalist (@darkjournalist) September 12, 20193. Why It MattersWhile the theories behind his brother's assassination are more than well-known, fewer people are familiar with the various theories put forward in the case of the assassination of Robert Kennedy. For decades conspiracy theorists have implied that Cesar may have been more involved than anyone knew, but now with the victim's own son adding his voice to their questions, Cesar's involvement seems more plausible. In a curious twist, Sirhan Sirhan was recently in the news on his own after he was stabbed in prison by another inmate, a crime unconnected to the death Kennedy.  RELATED: How Did Lee Radziwill Die? New Details About How Jackie O's Younger Sister Died4. What's The Evidence?Conspiracy theories aside, in order for RFK Jr.'s allegations to stick he's got to actually have evidence proving Cesar's involvement in the murder of his father or his claims are all for naught. It's going to be tricky since Sirhan Sirhan was actually arrested at the scene of the crime. In order for Kennedy's theory to be correct, you have to believe that there was a second shooting. Multiple witnesses who were there when Kennedy was shot claim that they saw Cesar raise his gun when Sirhan fired at Kennedy. Could Cesar's gun have discharged, accidentally killing Kennedy in the process? Ppl have no idea of what really goes on. All these years later credible evidence emerges about the murder of RFK. Sounds to me like this Thanes was involved https://t.co/5EC6OiTU63— stopdnsanity (@stopdnsanity) September 13, 20195. How Sirhan Sirhan Fits InAs far as the law is concerned, Sirhan Sirhan is Kennedy's killer. He was convicted of the murder. He admitted to doing it at his trial. However, there are those who will argue that he only did this as part of his lawyer's strategy to argue for his diminished mental capacity. Sirhan's comments about the murder have been wildly inconsistent to say the least. At times he has even claimed not to have any memory of the actual assassination at all. That said, the eye witness accounts and the diary entries where he wrote "RFK must die" prior to the assassination are pretty damning. RELATED: Jackie O's Lovers: Brando, Bobby Kennedy?6. The Questions Remaining While some might argue that the case of who killed RFK has been solved, there are still niggling bits of evidence that have some people, including it would seem RFK Jr., still unpacking serious questions. According to the San Francisco Chronicle, the chief questions are the facts that “the coroner reported that the fatal shot was fired less than one inch from Kennedy’s head behind his right ear. Four shots came from the rear but Sirhan fired a .22 from a few feet in front of Kennedy. The revolver held eight rounds, but a radio reporter’s tape recording of the shooting has sounds of what one audio expert describes as 13 shots and double shots."Rebecca Jane Stokes is a writer living in Brooklyn, New York with her cats, Batman and Margot.

2019-09-15Thane: Baby born on train, cord cut with broken bangle - Times of India
Thane: Baby born on train, cord cut with broken bangle Updated: Sep 15, 2019, 6:06 IST : THANE: A pregnant woman on her way to hospital delivered a boy on a moving train around 8 pm on Saturday. Her mother and mother-in-law who were chaperoning her helped deliver the baby. They cut the umbilical cord using a broken bangle. The woman from Ghansoli, Mangal Kale, then travelled back towards home in a crowded train for nearly 40 minutes with the newborn when commuters alerted railway authorities at Thane. Initially, while on their way to a hospital in Worli for Mangal's delivery, the three women got into a general compartment of a slow train at Thane when Mangal went into labour and the baby started crowning. Her mother and mother-in-law helped deliver the newborn as the train reached Matunga. After cutting the umbilical cord using a broken bangle, they clamped the cord with cloth to stop the blood flow, said Dr Rahul Ghule of the Re 1 clinic at Thane. They then headed back home to Ghansoli instead of going to a hospital. As Mangal felt ill, women commuters on the train helped her alight at Thane and took her to the medical room at the station.

2019-09-14First phase of Thane waterfront project to be ready in December - Hindustan Times
First phase of Thane waterfront project to be ready in December Updated: Sep 15, 2019 04:17 IST : With the Bombay high court recently giving its nod for the development of eight waterfronts in Thane, the civic commissioner is pushing to complete the first phase of the project before December this year. In the first phase, Thane Municipal Corporation (TMC)?plans to develop stretches of 300 to 500 metres along each waterfront. Promenades, walkways, gazebos, ghats and seating arrangement will be built. The project was stalled due to a petition filed by environmentalists, opposing the project. Last week, the Bombay high court asked TMC to go ahead with the waterfront project provided it has all permissions and also complies to all the 12 Maharashtra Coastal Zonal Management Authority’s (MCZMA) conditions. The court had also given directives to the MCZMA to supervise the work and visit the site every six months to check if the norms are followed. TMC assured the court that all permissions have been taken and not a single tree would be affected in the project. The petition was filed by activist Rohit Joshi along with NGO Vanashakti, claiming that the reclamation of land for Gaimukh chowpatty had led to flooding at Gaimukh during heavy rain. The petitioners also claimed that mangroves were destroyed as TMC dumped debris. They also alleged that TMC?had no permission for the waterfront project. A TMC official requesting anonymity said, “The court has asked us to go ahead with the project after ensuring the project does not affect the environment. The project aims at conserving, protecting and beautifying creek fronts in the city. The project is undertaken under the Smart City Limited which has approved the plan of all the eight waterfronts. MCZMA also had given its approval for the project in March.” The court had stayed the project for more than a year after the petition was filed. “We had filed a petition in the court, seeking permission to start work on August 9. The court approved our petition on September 9. Civic commissioner Sanjeev Jaiswal met officials to chalk out the plan. Information on all permissions will be displayed at all waterfronts. He also gave directives to complete the first phase in December.” TMC has completed the first phase of Gaimukh chowpatty while the work of Retibunder chowpatty is underway.
2019-09-1453 tonnes of floral waste collected during Ganeshotsav in Thane - Hindustan Times
53 tonnes of floral waste collected during Ganeshotsav in Thane Updated: Sep 15, 2019 04:22 IST : Around 53 tonnes of floral waste was collected during Ganeshotsav— an increase of 6 tonnes from last year. There was around 80% decrease in plastic waste and thermocol was not used in decorations this year. Officials and activists attributed this to increased awareness among devotees. The Thane Municipal Corporation (TMC) along with an NGO, Samarth Bharat Vyaspeeth, collected floral waste generated during the festival to convert them into fertilisers at a unit set up in Kopri. Scouts and guides from Little Flower High School conducted a clean-up drive in Thane on Friday. Students collected 30 bags of floral waste in three hours. The waste was handed over to the TMC. “Our teachers explained to us how waste management will help beautify the city,” said Rashi Parab, a student of Class 7 at Little Flower High School. A TMC official said, “A notable decrease in usage of plastic and thermocol was seen this year during the Ganpati festival.” “The usage of plastic among the floral waste had reduced by 80% this year,” he added. Bhatu Sawant, CEO, Samarth Bharat Vyaspeeth, said, “In the last 10 days, around 53 tonnes of floral waste was collected. Last year, 47 tonnes were collected. Increased social awareness could be the reason for the increase in amount of floral waste.” Volunteers from Nanasaheb Dharmadhikari Sangh collected floral waste from Railadevi lake.

Grabbing a byte? Robot servers chip inGrabbing a byte? Robot servers chip inSharmila Ganesan Ram | TNN | Updated: Sep 15, 2019, 3:10 ISTHighlightsThe trend of robot-themed restaurants began when an Indo-Thai restaurant, named for its robot attraction, opened on the outskirts of Chennai with sari-clad Android robots India has since sprouted a rash of mechanical waitresses over the last two yearsAndroids Arya, Ramya, Zoey, Alice & Sansa serve in Bengaluru’s first robot restaurantNEW DELHI: Excuse me. You are in my way. Would you please make a room for me? Thank you.” With that sentence, a scarf-sporting waitress at a vegetarian restaurant in Thane has been “making room” for herself in selfies, birthday videos and the attention spans of restless kids for close to a year now. Though officially nameless, Baby Doll was how Shailendra and Poonam Maurya, the restaurant owners, secretly referred to this made-in-Japan, Android-based robot waitress worth about Rs 10 lakh while testing it in their shuttered premises before introducing it in November last year. Very soon, Baby Doll was gliding across the restaurant’s grey floor to various tables, lulling hyperactive kids into hypnotic silence, delivering birthday cakes on cue and drawing in patrons from as far as Dahisar. Today, there are scratches on its blue-and-white exterior from where chairs accidentally elbowed it, its tray has come loose on one side after a kid decided to dangle from its forearm and it doesn’t serve much, except the bill, since a soup spillage episode temporarily shut it down. Its allure, like its item-girl nickname, is now slightly jaded, but elsewhere in the country, Baby Doll’s newly minted Android sisters are living it up. Awash in the glow of recent media attention are Guwahati’s traditionally dressed, locally assembled Palki, Bengaluru’s shiny, imported Arya, Ramya, Zoey, Alice, Sansa and Kannur’s Aleena, Helen and Jane, who spout greetings in English and regional languages. The trend of robot-themed restaurants began when an Indo-Thai restaurant, named for its robot attraction, opened on the outskirts of Chennai with sari-clad Android robots. India has since sprouted a rash of mechanical waitresses over the last two years, including Natasha, a fully functional humanoid robot sculpted by an 18-year-old restaurant owner in Delhi. Operated by tablets, these Android-based robots — which run 24 hours after charging — are programmed to bring orders to the right tables and are a hit with the family crowd. And they are not here to steal jobs, promise restaurateurs. “In fact, they increase the need for manpower as we have a crew of operators and technicians to fix them,” said Kailash Sunderrajan, general manager of the restaurant. His team members underwent training in China on operating robots and troubleshooting. “Come for the robots, stay for the food,” seems to be the invisible tagline of these restaurateurs. Sunderrajan recalls the team toying with many themes before zeroing in on robots for their “wow factor”. Thanks to specialised utensils such as flatter soup bowls, these robots are able to deliver even gravy-based dishes while their “more intelligent” receptionist counterparts startle first-time patrons by guiding them to tables and selfie-points. Curiosity brings in people from as far as Kashmir, says Sunderrajan, adding that their 120-seat outlet in Bengaluru, which came up last month, is struggling to accommodate 1,200 customers a day. The Chennai and Coimbatore outlets too have similar problems with the robotic synapses of their Android receptionists, who are capable of recognising faces, lighting up often at the names of repeat customers. In fact, so popular is the theme that one robot-themed restaurant in south India, we are told, has even indulged in some clandestine poaching of manpower. Six months ago, it was to lure spicy-food-preferring youngsters to his bland-food-serving ethnic establishment that Guwahati-based S N Farid decided to enlist the services of his plumber, electrician and other earthy technicians. Together, this motley crew configured the long-haired Assamese Android waitress, Palki, that welcomes customers with a “nomoskar” and herbal juice. While Palki has increased Farid’s average footfalls “by 50% a day” and tricked children into tucking into his healthy delicacies, such as a sour elephant-fruit-based dish, Farid, who is “not a technical guy but a simple person”, shrivels away from getting into the details of the robot’s various technical stumbles so far. The managers of the Thane restaurant, though, have no qualms admitting to teething troubles. The impact of the robots goes beyond gimmick. “People, especially the elderly, even develop an emotional connect with the robots,” says Sunderrajan, recalling guests whose orders come suffixed with requests such as: “I want to be served by Aisha.” As a tradition, his restaurant places a bowl in which patrons can drop in suggestions for names — chits that have included the gamut ranging from Harini to Alexa. For customers, the robot is as much an attraction as it is a welcome distraction. When Thane’s Amit Saha first took his nephews, 12-year-old Aukun and 8-year-old Rejaul, to the restaurant, they kept running behind the robot so Saha and his brother didn’t have to worry about keeping them entertained while sampling the fusion starters. Today, Saha says the little “Terminator” fans keep insisting on going back to the “robot restaurant”. Though all owners universally dismiss fears of artificial intelligence triumphing over humans, India can rely on its own incompetency for the answer. On a recent lean evening, Baby Doll’s gait was especially slow. She seemed to be ambling instead of gliding. When asked why, the manager explained: “WiFi is down.” more from times of india newsLatest NewsBreaking newsUS NewsPakistan NewsEurope NewsChina NewsSouth Asia NewsWorld NewsNarendra ModiTrending TopicsIndia vs South Africa T20Virat KohliHamza bin LadenPakistan NewsAmit ShahTejas Fighter JetArticle 370Saudi Aramco Drone AttackNirmala SitharamanHSSC Clerk Admit CardLATEST VIDEOSTop VideosWatch: Pak Army raises white flag at LoC to recover bodies of dead soldiers Samsung Galaxy M30s Presents Monster Trail with Amit Sadh Trending VideosWatch: Bhojpuri song 'Aab Ka Mannba Ae Rajaji' Ft.

2019-09-14Real-time traffic signal plan in Thane backfires - Hindustan Times
Real-time traffic signal plan in Thane backfires Updated: Sep 15, 2019 04:30 IST : The Thane Municipal Corporation (TMC)?and traffic department’s experiment of installing signals that worked based on real-time traffic monitoring at two important junctions has been stopped within 10 days of being set up. This is because the real-time traffic monitoring worsened congestion instead of resolving it. The real-time traffic monitoring system was installed at the Nitin Company and Teen Haath Naka junctions on a trial basis on September 4. Officials pulled it down on Friday. “In the coming week, civic officials and traffic department will discuss the issue and decide whether the real-time traffic system should continue or not,” said Amit Kale, deputy commissioner of police, Thane traffic department. “The system was supposed to give the signal depending on the traffic on the particular lane near the junction. However, the signal took more time than usual to release traffic in each lane,” said a traffic official from Thane. According to traffic officials, a normal signal takes 40 to 50 seconds to clear each lane of the junction. However, as the real-time traffic system works depending on the number of vehicles in each lane at a particular time, this could increase the waiting time to above 80 seconds. The congestion at Nitin Company junction affected other routes as well as it is connected to the main highway, another TMC official said. It also affected other internal routes in the city, which have bus stops along the way, he said. “Every half an hour, the traffic police had to stop the system to ease traffic,” the official said.

2019-09-14Underpass on Thane-Belapur Road ready, but residents cannot use it till January - Hindustan Times
Underpass on Thane-Belapur Road ready, but residents cannot use it till January Updated: Sep 15, 2019 04:06 IST : The Navi Mumbai Municipal Corporation (NMMC) completed work on an underpass on Thane-Belapur road at Airoli in June. However, the civic body officials have said it will take another four months — till January — to throw it open to the public as a small road connecting the subway and an arterial road going towards the MIDC corridor, has not been built yet. The underpass, which connects the T-junction of the Mulund-Airoli link road to the MIDC corridor, was approved by the general body last year. A budget of Rs 11 crore was set aside for it. A senior official of NMMC on condition of anonymity said, “There were no delays in starting work on the underpass and we completed it in the first week of June. A road to reach the underpass from the residential areas of Airoli and Rabale is already there. But we will have to build a small road of around 300 metres to connect the other end of the underpass to an arterial road in the MIDC area. ..we will be able to open the underpass to the public only in December or in January next year.” When asked why the work on the road was not started earlier, the official said, “It was not possible to concentrate both on the underpass and the road at the same time. It’s troublesome to dig and level the area for developing the road during heavy rainfall.” Siddharth Mane, 38, an activist from Airoli, said, “Hundreds of people from Airoli like us get stuck in traffic jam while crossing that junction. At times, it takes 15-20 minutes just to cross the junction. The civic body should not have taken so much time to complete the road and the underpass.” Manish Pandey, 43, an Airoli resident, said, “The road to connect the underpass and the MIDC road was already in the planning of NMMC. If it’s not possible to do such work during rain, they should have done it before the onset of monsoon.”

Activist wants action against traffic dept over signboards nailed on trees in Thane Updated: Sep 14, 2019 01:03 IST : A Thane-based activist has claimed that the traffic department has violated the Tree Act by nailing ‘No parking’ signboards on trees at several spots in the city. Activist Rajiv Dutta has written to the Thane police commissioner and other agencies demanding action be taken over harming the trees. “I have written to the officials about authorities nailing signboards on trees. I have mentioned in the letter that the traffic department’s action is a violation of the Tree Act, National Green Tribunal rulings and High Court orders,” said Dutta. Thane Municipal Corporation (TMC) confirmed it has received a letter from the activist on the issue. “We received the letter by the activist about nailing signboards on trees. The matter will be forwarded to the tree department and accordingly action will be taken,” said a senior official from the TMC. Despite repeated attempts, traffic officers were unavailable for comment. Dutta has taken photos of signboards on trees and forwarded them with the letters as proof. “One signboard has been nailed on trees near Thane Police School, Mahagiri. I have submitted the photos with my letter as proof,” said Dutta. “Around 12 to 15 trees in the city have such signboards nailed on them. By law, the civic body is supposed to take action by filing an FIR against violators of the Tree Act. However, I have not received a reply to my letters,” he added. Meanwhile, the signboards have been ignored by residents, who continue to violate rules by parking vehicles just below the signboards.
2019-09-13Thane has more potholes this year: Survey - Hindustan Times
Thane has more potholes this year:?Survey Updated: Sep 14, 2019 03:15 IST : More than 3,000 potholes have surfaced after heavy downpour this month, as per a recent survey of potholes released by the Thane Municipal Corporation (TMC). The civic body claimed to have filled more than 2,911 potholes since the start of Ganeshotsav while the work of filling remaining potholes is underway. The survey says the city has only 226 potholes. After receiving lot of flak for potholed roads, Thane Municipal Corporation has started filling potholes work after August 20, during a dry spell. Most potholes re-appeared just before the festive season, when heavy rain lashed the city. On September 11, TMC carried out a survey of potholes across all wards. A TMC official said, “As per the survey, there were 3,137 potholes across the city on an area of 5,636 square metre. In the last 10 days, despite heavy rains, we have tried to fill as many potholes as possible to ensure a smooth Ganeshotsav. Around 2,911 potholes were filled in the festive season. The work of repairing the roads is in process and we will try to fill all potholes.” As per the survey, the worst affected ward was the Majiwada Manpada ward with 642 potholes followed by 524 potholes at Uthalsar and 501 potholes in Diva. The official added, “Most of the Majiwada-Manpada area has posh residential societies and witnesses heavy traffic. We recently dug up the service road for sewage work and so there are many potholes on the service road. We plan to concretise most of the roads after monsoon using the UTWT technique.” The condition of roads has worsened this year, which the corporation blames on the heavy downpour. Compared to the previous years when potholes numbered around 1,500, it has risen to more than 3,000 potholes this year. City engineer Ravindra Khadtale said, “We had been filling potholes throughout Ganeshotsav. The work of filling the potholes was going on throughout the night on September 11 and 12, especially on the roads leading to immersion ghats. All officials were told to be on the roads to supervise repair work on the last two days.” Residents said they still commuter on bumpy roads. Shekhar Das, 55, resident of Ghodbunder, said, “There is no point in filling potholes during rain. Instead, efforts should be taken throughout the year to ensure roads are repaired. After monsoon, everything is forgotten. TMC undertakes road repair work only in May, just before monsoon. It should be an on-going work. Moreover, the corporation should blacklist contractors who have repaired roads using substandard materials.” Some of the busy areas riddled with potholes are Court Naka junction, Castle Mill junction, Ghodbunder service Road, Teen Hath Naka and the road near Police School in Kharkar Alley.

Kennedy and Thane Eugene Cesar. Thane Cesar is the security guard who was standing behind Robert F. Kennedy when the presidential candidate was assassinated in Los Angeles, a crime for which Sirhan Sirhan was convicted. For years, Cesar lived a relatively quiet life, building a family in the Philippines. However, just hours after Cesar died – on September 11, 2019 – Kennedy’s son, Robert F. Kennedy Jr., took to Instagram to build the case that Cesar may have “murdered my father.”It’s one of the most important events in American history, the assassination of a presidential brother, aspiring presidential candidate, former Attorney General and poverty crusader, who embodied the hopes of the Kennedy dynasty and more. RFK Jr. – who met with the man convicted of being his dad’s assassin, Sirhan Sirhan, in prison a year ago – has publicly raised questions before about a question that some thought was already closed but researchers have been raising for years: Who killed RFK at the Ambassador Hotel in Los Angeles?Cesar’s name is not a new one to people who study the RFK assassination, but the theories in that death are not as well known as those that have taken root around the murder of his brother, President John F. Kennedy. In this case, though, you have the victim’s son raising the question. (Incidentally, Sirhan Sirhan was recently stabbed in prison but survived the attack; officials said the suspect was another inmate. California prison officials have still not released the name of that inmate or the motive; asked for it by Heavy, Dana Simas, Corrections Press Secretary in that state, responded on September 9, 2019, “the incident that occurred on Friday, Aug. 30th in which an inmate was assaulted is still under investigation and has not yet been referred to the county district attorney’s office.” She did not release the name.)But what is RFK Jr.’s evidence that Thane Cesar – also known as Thane Eugene Cesar – killed his dad? After all, Sirhan Sirhan was literally captured at the scene. It’s not that people think Sirhan Sirhan played no role; it’s that questions remain about whether there was a second gunman and whether someone else was behind the role he played. Multiple witnesses saw Thane Eugene Cesar draw his gun when Sirhan Sirhan fired toward Kennedy. You can read RFK Jr.’s full post later in this article.Sirhan Sirhan was convicted of murdering Kennedy. He admitted it at his trial, but that was strategic because his lawyers pursued a diminished capacity argument. He’s also claimed he has no memory of the assassination. Some believe he was a pawn in a bigger plot. It’s clear that Sirhan Sirhan was there at the scene, and probably that he opened fire (even RFK Jr. says Sirhan Sirhan was shooting toward RFK). Sirhan Sirhan was captured at the scene and seen firing at Kennedy by multiple witnesses. He also wrote about killing RFK in journals. He wrote “RFK must die” in his diary and authorities thought that the date of the assassination tied into the “one year anniversary of the Six-Day War.” Here is Sirhan Sirhan's journal.He writes in the months leading to Robert F Kennedy's assassination: 'RFK must die' pic.twitter.com/w4VPIUmdNi — Professor Frank McDonough (@FXMC1957) June 3, 2013 Whether he killed RFK or the candidate was felled by a second gunman’s bullet is the core question. The San Francisco Chronicle, back in 2008, wrote about questions in the death, noting the fact that the coroner “reported that the fatal shot was fired less than one inch from Kennedy’s head behind his right ear.” Four shots came from the rear but Sirhan fired a .22 “from a few feet in front of Kennedy.” The revolver held eight rounds, but “a radio reporter’s tape recording of the shooting has sounds of what one audio expert describes as 13 shots” and “double shots,” reported The Chronicle, summing up the main concerns.Cesar also has defenders, most notably the author Dan Moldea, who confirmed on Facebook that Cesar has died (as did Cesar’s daughter in the Philippines). He published a lengthy rebuttal of arguments that Cesar murdered Robert F. Kennedy, which you can also read later in this article.Heavy reached out to Cesar through his daughter in the Philippines, where he lived. However, she said that he is not granting interviews anymore. That was months before he died. Several days before he died, the daughter, who is from Pasay City, Philippines, wrote the Heavy reporter that she had seen the article but did not respond to further requests for comment.She has been posting about Cesar’s death on Facebook. “I will miss you so much. Today, my heart is broken in thousand pieces. 💔 I love you daddy,” Cesar’s daughter wrote on September 11, 2019.Here’s what you need to know:1.

Kennedy Jr. (@robertfkennedyjr) on Sep 11, 2019 at 10:05pm PDT Bobby Kennedy’s namesake son first went public with his doubts that Sirhan Sirhan was a lone assassin a year before Cesar’s death. In fact, in his Instagram post, Bobby states that he wanted to meet with Thane Cesar in the Philippines but the meeting didn’t happen. According to an article in The Washington Post by Tom Jackson, published on May 26, 2018, Bobby Kennedy’s own son, Robert F. Kennedy Jr., came to the belief back then that his father was not killed by Sirhan Sirhan and met with him in a California prison. When the meeting was over (which Kennedy did not detail to the Post), “he joined those who believe there was a second gunman, and that it was not Sirhan who killed his father,” the story reported.“I was disturbed that the wrong person might have been convicted of killing my father,” Kennedy said, joining calls for a new investigation already made by Paul Schrade, who was also shot that day on June 5, 1968 at the Ambassador Hotel in Los Angeles. Sirhan Sirhan, charged with the assassination of Senator Robert Kennedy during a campaign stop in California. In his Instagram post, RFK Jr. wrote that Cesar was “directly behind my dad” when RFK was shot.Thane Eugene Cesar died today in the Philippines.

Ironically, Moldea penned a meticulous and compelling indictment of Cesar in a 1995 book and then suddenly exculpated him by fiat in a bizarre and nonsensical final chapter. Police have never seriously investigated Cesar’s role in my father’s killing.These are not new arguments, although RFK Jr.’s voice lends a powerful advocate for the theories that there was a second gunman. Whether that gunman was Thane Cesar is a theory that even some of Sirhan’s own lawyers have challenged at times.In 2012, UPI reported that Sirhan’s lawyers “say a second gunman fired the fatal shot.” However, they “ruled out a security guard long suspected of playing a role in the slaying,” UPI reported. The lawyers were trying to get a new trial for Sirhan, and they said in court filings that Cesar was not the killer. However, they wanted an evidentiary hearing.One of the driving forces behind the belief that there was a second gunman is the testimony, as RFK Jr. notes, of famed Los Angeles County Coroner Thomas Noguchi, who maintained from the start that Kennedy was shot from behind and at a closer range than witnesses say Sirhan got to the candidate. Bobby Kennedy told the Post this argument was persuasive to him, saying, “The people that were closest to [Sirhan], the people that disarmed him all said he never got near my father.”The Los Angeles Times reported in 2005 of Los Angeles County Coroner Noguchi’s findings: “Eyewitnesses put Sirhan no closer than 18 inches from Kennedy, but Noguchi testified that when the fatal wound was inflicted the gun was 1 inch to 1 1/2 inches from Kennedy’s ear. His testimony fed conspiracy theories that Sirhan had not acted alone.”Here’s part of a Noguchi radio interview, in which the coroner essentially repeats that point:“Based solely on the examination of the remains and the scene afterwards, I came to the conclusion that the Senator Bobby Kennedy was shot by a small caliber gun from the right side of the back of the head,” he said during the above interview. Noguchi said the fatal wound came at such close range that it was “perhaps three inches from the back of the ear. Might even be one inch.” He said that he understood that witnesses produced by the prosecution had not been able to find any witness to say that Sirhan was that close. However, he said, “everyone was in a panicky situation.”Noguchi found other curious details when he studied the body. Noguchi also “found powder burns on the senator’s jacket and on his hair, indicating shots fired at close range,” The Post reported. The Post reported that Schrade believes Sirhan did fire and wound others but did not kill Kennedy.“According to the autopsy report, the coroner concluded that the senator’s body and clothing were struck from behind, at right rear, by four bullets fired at upward angles and at point-blank range. Yet witnesses said Sirhan fired somewhat downward, almost horizontally, from several feet in front of Kennedy, and witnesses did not report the senator’s back as ever being exposed to Sirhan or his gun,” CNN reported.2.

Thane Eugene Cesar was well aware of the plethora of researchers who raised his name as a suspect over the years. “There were dozens of articles that have come out saying that I carried a second gun, and that I possibly could’ve been the person who shot Bobby Kennedy – because the bullet entered the back of his head,” Cesar acknowledged to author Moldea, who has written that he doesn’t believe that Cesar killed Kennedy. Cesar denied firing his gun in an interview with Moldea. Cesar’s daughter posted a lengthy defense the author Moldea wrote about Cesar, writing on Facebook, “I am the proud daughter of Thane Eugene Cesar. Thank you Dan E. Moldea for this ❤️.”This is Moldea’s post in full: 12:30 PM. . . . Thane Eugene Cesar—the security guard still falsely accused of killing Senator Robert Kennedy in June 1968—died an hour ago at a Manila hospital in the Philippines after a long illness. He was 77 years old. . . . When I first entered the RFK murder investigation in 1987, I, too, believed that Cesar—who was standing next to Senator Kennedy with a gun in his hand and powder burns on his face—was a possible second gunman. However, I continued to investigate and was able to find and repeatedly interview Gene, whom the Los Angeles District Attorney’s Office, as well as the LAPD, believed to be dead. After spending over forty hours with him, I wanted some test or measurement to determine how much time and money I needed to continue pursuing him. Marvin Rudnick, a trusted friend who was a former federal prosecutor in LA, suggested that I arrange for Cesar to take a polygraph test. . . . Thus, if he failed, I would never stop coming after him. If he passed, I would treat him as another eyewitness to the killing. Cesar agreed to take the lie-detector test—personally conducted by Edward Gelb in LA, then the president of the American Polygraph Association. Cesar passed with flying colors and no room for doubt. In short, Gene Cesar was an innocent man, wrongly accused of murdering one of the greatest crimefighters in American history. And I was proud to proclaim his innocence in my 1995 book about the murder of Senator Kennedy. Four years later, Cesar invited me to be the godfather of his newborn son, and he asked me to handle all media inquiries for him, giving me his legal power of attorney, which I still retain. Attached is a 1:28-minute excerpt of my twelfth and final recorded interview with Cesar which took place on June 4, 1994, the day before my third and final face-to-face interview with Sirhan Sirhan, whom I concluded in my 1995 book committed the murder and acted alone. BTW: I am the only person in the world, living or dead, who has interviewed both Cesar and Sirhan. God bless Gene Cesar, a tragic character in a footnote of American history, who will sadly continue to be defamed long after his death.Moldea also wrote a comment to Cesar’s daughter on Facebook, saying, “Your dad was an innocent man, wrongly accused. I was proud to exonerate him with overwhelming evidence–although I fully realize that the reckless and malicious charges against him will not stop. . . . Trust me, I will continue to defend him. . . . God bless Gene, Ellie, you, and your family.”You can watch the post Moldea posted on Facebook here.Moldea recounts how Cesar was allegedly a last-minute addition to the Kennedy security detail and didn’t want to go. He described him as 26, and working as a plumber at Lockheed Aircraft. He’d been married to Joyce for five years, and the marriage was troubled, Moldea writes. He worked part-time as a security guard, and his boss, the manager of Ace Guard Service, where he worked, called and asked him to help with security at the Kennedy event.He was carrying a .38 Rohm revolver (Kennedy was shot by a .22, which Sirhan had. Cesar acknowledged that he also owned a .22 but said he didn’t have it with him that fateful day. However, his comments on that weapon provoked more controversy). At the Ambassador, Thane Cesar reported to “Fred Murphy, the Ace commander and a former LAPD lieutenant, and William Gardner, the hotel’s chief of security,” Moldea writes. “I’m on the right side of him,” Cesar told the author. “And what I’m doing is taking my hand and pushing people back, because Kennedy was having a hard time walking forward.” He saw flashes and reached for his gun, the author wrote in The Killing of Robert F. Kennedy: An Investigation of Motive, Means, and Opportunity.Cesar told the LAPD that Kennedy was two feet from Sirhan’s gun, the book reports. According to Moldea’s book, several witnesses saw Cesar with the gun in his hand. One said he was “pointing it down in Kennedy’s general direction” and another expressed relief that Cesar had not fired at Sirhan.Cesar was interviewed within minutes of the shooting by John Marshall, a radio reporter, and said, “I was there holding his arm when they shot him” and “As he (Kennedy) walked up, the guy pulled a gun and shot him.” He said he was on Kennedy’s right side. He said he reached for his gun but “it was too late.” Police at the scene did not examine Cesar’s gun.One curious aspect of the case is what happened to Cesar’s tie during the assassination, as some say it can be seen lying on the ground next to RFK in one of the most iconic shots of the Senator dying on the floor.Online property records a year before his death showed Thane E. Cesar with a P.O. box and address in Simi Valley, California, but there was no record trail since 2009. Heavy picked up his trail in the Philippines, where family members posted about him on Facebook with great affection. Defense investigator Bob Kaiser said of the guard, “he was innocent; there was no doubt in my mind.”Thane Cesar was standing directly behind Kennedy, gave “different versions of his movements” and about when he drew his gun, was a “supporter of 1968 American Independent Party presidential candidate George Wallace and made no secret of his hatred of the politics of both John and Robert Kennedy,” the Moldea book says. However, he also offered to surrender his gun to authorities (although they didn’t take him up on it at the time of the assassination), volunteered that he owned a .22, and agreed to take a polygraph.The 1987 interview the author conducted occurred when Cesar was 45 and living in Simi Valley. He is English, French, and German in descent and the son of a housewife and air freight dispatcher. He played football in high school and studied police science. He was rejected by the LAPD and became a plumber, the book says. He had two children and was divorced from his first wife. He married a second time in 1969. At one point, he filed for bankruptcy. He was a former Democrat turned Reagan supporter at the time of Moldea’s interview. He said he was raised prejudiced and was “probably prejudiced today.”He also allegedly called the Kennedy family the “biggest bunch of crooks that ever walked the earth,” the book says. Cesar allegedly added, “I had no use for the Kennedy family.” But he said that didn’t make him guilty. “Just because I don’t like Democrats don’t mean I go around shooting them,” he allegedly told the author. In an interview, though, Cesar “denied every having held extreme right-wing views on racial issues, ever having canvassed for George Wallace, or ever having professed hatred for the Kennedys,” Moldea wrote.According to the book, Cesar said another Ace Guard said he “wouldn’t be a bit surprised if somebody didn’t try to knock Bpbby off.” He was guarding the pantry but didn’t see Sirhan. He said he had “powder burns in his eyes.” The police didn’t seem interested in interviewing him thoroughly or checking his gun.3. Witnesses Disagreed on Whether Cesar Fired His Weapon That Day or Was Just Holding ItWhat do eyewitnesses say? Kennedy was killed in a crowded room. Thus, there were many people in a position to explain what they saw, and, so they did, but as is often true in the case of eyewitnesses, they diverge.Multiple witnesses saw Thane Cesar pull out his gun, but only one accused him of firing it, which Cesar has denied over the years. The key witness cited by many believers of the second gunman theory is a man named Don Schulman, who was then a runner for KNXT-TV.He gave an interview at the scene to a local television reporter. “Well, I was standing directly behind him. I saw a man pull out a gun. It looked like he pulled it out of his pocket. He shot three times. I saw all three shots hit the senator. Then, I saw the senator fall and was picked up and carried away. I also saw the security men pull out their weapons. After that, it was very fuzzy. The next thing I knew, there were several shots fired. I saw a woman with blood come out of her temple… I saw the security police grab someone… the crowd was very panicky.”The site RFKProject says Schuman appears in this video at 2:42, confirming he was there that day. The police report on Schulman’s statement doesn’t mention the security guard angle.Schulman later grew more confident about what he says he saw when speaking to Ted Charach for a controversial documentary Charach made putting forth the second gunman theory. He said he was “following the senator….we were packed in there like sardines….another man stepped out and he shot. Just then the guard who was standing behind Kennedy, he took out his gun, and he fired also.” He said that Sirhan Sirhan was about 3 to 6 feet behind Kennedy, but that the guard was standing on the right hand side, directly and behind Kennedy. He said he told the story to several police authorities. He added, “The guard definitely pulled out his gun and fired.”Schulman alsosaid, “A Caucasian gentleman stepped out and fired. The security guard hit Kennedy all three times. Kennedy slumped to the floor. The security guard fired back…” One Schulman statement was taken by a reporter named Jeff Brent. He later alleged to Charach, a researcher, “… a guard definitely pulled out his gun and fired… He wasn’t very far from Kennedy.” Again, Schulman’s account is unproven, other witnesses did not allege the same, and Cesar denies firing his gun, which he says was a different caliber from the .22 that took Kennedy’s life.The Guardian reported in 2006, “Witnesses place Sirhan’s gun several feet in front of Kennedy, but the fatal bullet is fired from one inch behind.”In 2012, CNN reported on a federal court hearing into Sirhan’s lawyers challenges against his conviction and a witness named Nina Rhodes-Hughes. “What has to come out is that there was another shooter to my right,” Rhodes-Hughes said to CNN. “The truth has got to be told. No more cover-ups.”At trial, Sirhan testified he murdered Kennedy “with 20 years of malice aforethought,” but later recanted, CNN reported. He received the death penalty but in 1972 this was changed to life in prison. A 2016 appeal in the case was rejected. U.S. Magistrate Judge Andrew Wistrich wrote that Sirhan would be liable “as an aider and abettor” even if someone else killed Kennedy, the Post story reported, adding, that the idea of a second gunmen shooting Kennedy “at close range with the same type of gun and ammunition as [Sirhan] was using, but managed to escape the crowded room without notice of almost any of the roomful of witnesses, lacks any evidentiary support.”4. Thane Cesar Gave Shifting Stories About His .22 Revolver & Later Moved to the Philippines 50 years ago today, New York Times reports on RFK funeral and arrest of suspect in MLK assassination: pic.twitter.com/JbAmPAV1zq — Michael Beschloss (@BeschlossDC) June 9, 2018 Part of the case against Cesar involves his .22.It’s been alleged that Cesar owned an H&R .22 revolver and sold it later to Jim Yoder, a friend of his in Arkansas. He allegedly told police he sold the .22 before the murder when he actually sold it after the murder. Moldea’s book says that Charach, the documentarian, learned that Cesar sold his .22 revolver to Yoder three months after the assassination, and that Yoder provided a receipt. The book adds that Yoder allegedly told Charach the gun was stolen in a burglary.In 1971, Cesar was interviewed by the LAPD on the .22. According to Moldea, Cesar denied he owned the gun on the night Kennedy was assassinated and instead said he sold it to Yoder before Kennedy was murdered. Moldea notes that Cesar had sold the gun to Yoder after the assassination and had shown it to a sergeant on June 24, 1968. “But law enforcement authorities accepted Cesar’s account,” he wrote.Cesar filed for bankruptcy in 1994. He filed an unsuccessful Employment Discrimination suit against Anheuser Busch “and subsequently moved to the Philippines. It doesn’t sound like the profile of an assassin on a CIA pension,” wrote author Shane O’Sullivan in the book Who Killed Bobby? The Unsolved Murder of Robert F. Kennedy.However, some people believe questions still remain.“It’s clear that Cesar’s position behind and to the right of Kennedy matched the shooting position described in the autopsy,” the book reports. He had advance notice Kennedy was coming through and was “possibly seen talking to Sirhan.” He “has repeatedly changed his story on when he drew his gun, and his movements after the shooting…Questions remain as to who pulled his tie off.”Cesar “told the LAPD that he ducked and was knocked down at the first shot,” according to The Assassinations: Probe Magazine on JFK, MLK, RFK, and Malcolm X.Eara Marchman told the LAPD that she saw a man arguing with a “uniformed guard who was standing by swinging kitchen door,” The Probe Magazine book asserts. Cesar denied seeing Sirhan before the shooting. Cesar “was only hired in May of 1968, just days before the assassination,” the book says.5. Key Evidence for a Second Gunman Revolves Around the Number of Shots Fired That Day RFK Jr. One of the strongest arguments for a second gunman is that there were simply too many shots fired that day for them to have been fired by Sirhan Sirhan’s weapon.Sirhan Sirhan was carrying a .22 that only held eight bullets and didn’t reload, but some witnesses (and audio experts) allege that more than eight shots rang out. Rhodes-Hughes told CNN she heard more than eight shots. “There were too many bullets,” Robert Kennedy Jr. said to The Post in 2018. “You can’t fire 13 shots out of an eight-shot gun.”CNN reported that at least four other witnesses told authorities they may have heard more than eight shots. They are Jesse Unruh, Frank Mankiewicz, Estelyn Duffy LaHive, and Booker Griffin. Furthermore, there is an audio recording of the assassination that was captured by a freelance journalist named Stanislaw Pruszynski. Some experts say the audio recording captured the sound of 13 shots.An acoustic expert named Philip van Praag examined the audio, which the Polish journalist did not realize he was recording at the time. “…there are two pairs of double shots that occurred so close together it is inconceivable that Sirhan could have fired them all. The third and fourth shots and the seventh and eighth were separated by 122 and 149 milliseconds respectively,” Spartacus Educational alleges. “One witness said that those shots came so close together that he could scarcely believe they were fired from one gun,” and another witness said the shots sounded like they came from a machine gun, legendary news anchor Walter Conkrite said in one of the news broadcasts from the time, which you can watch below.According to CNN, “The Los Angeles County coroner determined that three bullets struck Kennedy’s body and a fourth passed harmlessly through his clothing.”The Post noted that a ballistics expert testified at trial that a bullet in Kennedy’s body matched Sirhan’s gun, but other experts found that bullets at the scene were from different guns. Some also argue that possible bullet holes in door frames show there had to be a second gunman. United States News: Prosecutors, attorneys argue: Was there a second gunman in RFK's assassination? pic.twitter.com/kq46IjM7 — United States (@theintlwireus) February 13, 2012 In 2008, The San Francisco Chronicle ran an article on the Robert Kennedy assassination. Of Sirhan, it reports that he was “ Palestinian who was raised in the Middle East until he was 12, when his family settled in Southern California.” He “held a series of menial jobs” and once wanted to be a jockey, the newspaper reported.

2019-09-12Aarey protest fallout? Thane green zone spared, Metro 4 yard relocated - Times of India
Aarey protest fallout? Thane green zone spared, Metro 4 yard relocated Updated: Sep 12, 2019, 9:16 IST : THANE: As protests mount over tree-cutting in Aarey, the Mumbai Metropolitan Region Development Authority (MMRDA) has shelved a plan to build the Metro 4 yard and allied facilities in a green zone in Owale in Thane. A notification, issued on August 30, says the yard and the allied facilities will now come up in Mogharpada across Ghodbunder Road. The decision means that 40 hectares of green cover can breathe easy. The MMRDA, however, has maintained acquisition hurdles in the green zone as the reasons for relocation. A source, however, said MMRDA was not keen on attracting the ire of green activists over the possible cutting of trees in Owale for Metro 4 between Kasarwadavli and Wadala. MMRDA commissioner R A Rajeev said, “The Owale land is under private ownership. We are shifting to government land in Mogharpada.” Officials said MMRDA had sought over 40 hectares in Owale for the Metro facilities and the Thane Municipal Corporation (TMC) had given an approval to modify green and residential zone there. A state government approval was sought in 2017. However, financial constraints and a possibility of opposition from activists prompted the authority to plan relocation, they added. MMRDA then identified a government plot in Mogharpada and sent a recommendation to the state to nullify the Owale proposal. Accordingly, the urban development department, on August 30, issued the notification, which says the MMRDA and TMC have claimed high costs of acquisition in Owale that could prove a deterrent for on-time completion of the project. The deadline for the Metro 4 route is 2023. Also, as MMRDA was dragged to the court in 2012 by some builders over the Owale plan, it had told the HC last month that the Metro facilities will be relocated to Mogharpada. “The builders want to build bungalows in Owale as 0.5 FSI is permitted for construction in green zones,” said a civic official.

2019-09-12Thane: From modaks to mehndi, 15 Japanese students gets taste of Ganeshotsav - Times of India
Thane: From modaks to mehndi, 15 Japanese students gets taste of Ganeshotsav Updated: Sep 12, 2019, 8:21 IST : Thane's Vidya Prasarak Mandal's Polytechnic Institute have found a keen audience: 15 Japanese students sporting Barbie umbrellas and face masks and trying to process India. I saw a donkey here," muses Yasuko Miyagawa, one of the two excursion leaders who seemed to need her hand-fan for relief from the sweaty city as well as its sensory overload. From sampling modaks on a home visit to learning that the crunchy topping on poha is called sev, the Kyoto Sangyo University students-who coincided their culture studies visit with Ganeshotsav-seem well en route to satiating their hunger for knowledge of Indian culture. Since September 1, their days have been a blur of yoga sessions, Hindi classes, English lessons with movie screenings, spicy vegetarian meals and dance showcases. Today, ten days in, though the henna applied on their hands by law college students is fading, the memories of discovering that tiklis are for girls only and incessant honking are still fresh. If Shiena Ishihara demurely confesses her love for achar, Sakura Koyama searches her phone for a picture of samosas while trying to remember what the dish she so relished recently was called. Phir milenge, says Koyama prematurely, while showing off the Hindi she has picked up. While the trip confirmed Ishihara's perception of Indians as intelligent, it also dismantled stereotypes for many others. Some students thought the country was unsafe and unclean and that people cheat you here. But they realised reality is different, said professor of culture studies Kiyokuni Shiga, adding that the team included, besides his own humanities students, a female Math student and a female student learning English in the US whose parents would not have let them visit India on their own. On his tenth visit to India, Shiga, who wears kurtas in Japan while inducting students to his course, finds many spiritual parallels between the two countries including concepts such as guru-shishya parampara and atithi devo bhava. In fact, the latter has an exact Japanese equivalent, he tells us. It's called Omonetashi. Perhaps it's this concept that's fooling guest student Ayano Horiuchi into believing that Indians are warmer and kinder than the Japanese. Indian passengers can become friends with each other on the train, says Horiuchi. You will never see that happening in Japan. Over two days of dancing in the bus and translating on cue, Atharva Deshpande, the only Japanese-conversant mass media student volunteer, says he feels an easy camaraderie with the students. We assumed they would be introverts but we mingled as if we are childhood friends, says Deshpande, who found himself explaining why Indians liked to dance so much. Professor Prashant Dharmadhikari, who has been teaching conversational English in deliberately performative post-lunch sessions, the cultural exchange programme is a consistent reminder of the redundancy of the colonising language he teaches. Japan is the third largest economy despite a majority of the population not knowing English, says Dharmadhikari, who finds his Japanese students to be anti-matter of his talkative Indian students. "They are calm and sensitive, he says.
2019-09-11Godrej fined for promoting project without registration - Mumbai Mirror
Godrej fined for promoting project without registration Updated: Sep 11, 2019, 06:16 IST : Godrej tendered an unconditional apology for its ‘inadvertant error’The Maharashtra Real Estate Regulatory Authority (MahaRERA) imposed a fine of Rs 30 lakh on Godrej Properties for putting up 30 hoardings of their new project in Thane without first registering it. The authority summoned Godrej Properties for a hearing after complainant Aditya Bothra brought the discrepancy to its notice. The developer had unleashed a pre-launch marketing campaign advertising its new project without first registering it as an ongoing real estate project on the MahaRERA online portal. Himanshu Joshi, a Godrej Properties representative, appeared before MahaRERA chairperson Gautam Chartterjee during the hearing recently and accepted that the company had put up 30 billboards at multiple locations in Mumbai and Thane for their real estate projects. Joshi, however, argued that these billboards may not be treated as advertisements violating the law as the billboards also displayed a specific disclaimer. He said the billboards displayed a disclaimer stating that the information on the hoardings is neither an advertisement nor an offer for the sale of any real estate project within the ambit of RERA. "The developer shall launch and sell the flats/units only after obtaining permanent registration number from RERA," the disclaimer said. After examining the evidence, Chatterjee said that such billboards could be misleading since a potential customer like Bothra had received subsequent phone calls and was allegedly told to deposit a booking amount to block flats in the project. The chairperson stressed that such promotions can also disrupt a level playing field for competitors. During the hearing, Joshi accepted that making pre-launch announcements without obtaining MahaRERA registration number was an inadvertent error, and tendered an unconditional apology. He also said that the company would pull down all the billboards and ensure that they will not "solicit, misguide, or engage" in such pre-launch announcement in future. Though the complainant withdrew his complaint at the subsequent hearing, Chatterjee said the Authority "cannot be oblivious" to the non-compliant behaviour of the promoter company. The registration application will be approved only after this penalty is paid, Chatterjee had said in his order dated August 27.

Ramdas Athawale may get snared by noise norms Updated: Sep 11, 2019, 9:15 IST : Ramdas AthawaleUnion minister Ramdas Athawale may get into trouble for violating noise pollution norms. On Monday night, he gave a speech at 10.23pm at an RPI rally in Ulhasnagar, going against the Supreme Court's 10pm restriction. Firecrackers too were lit at the event. Athawale, who heads RPI and is junior minister for social justice and empowerment in the Modi government, was scheduled to reach Ulhasnagar earlier in the evening, but reached after 10pm. A local corporator, Bhagwan Bhalerao, who had organised the RPI rally, urged Athawale to deliver a speech, saying party workers had waited for him for around four hours. Following the incident, the police registered a case against Bhalerao and sound system operator Pramod Thorat under section 188 (disobedience to order duly promulgated by public servant) of the Indian Penal code. But an anti-noise pollution activist, Sarita Khanchandani, said she will move high court against police's inaction on Athawale. As for Bhalerao, she said he also ought to have been booked for violating noise rules. Incidentally, Bhalerao, RPI's Ulhasnagar chief, had organized the event expecting an RPI ticket to fight the state assembly polls. To his disappointment, Athawale didn't declare his candidacy directly during the short four-minute speech, only saying that he will try to get a ticket for Bhalerao after discussions with ally BJP. Asked about rule violations, Athawale told journalists that the event's organiser told him permission had been obtained for a late speech. DCP (zone 3, Thane) Pramod Shewale said that if required, action in the case will be taken against others too.

A meeting was held at Matoshree on Tuesday in presence of Thane’s guardian minister Eknath Shinde, mayor, civic chief and few other Sena leaders to end the face-off. Thackeray said the ruling party and Jaiswal need to work together for the development of the city. A Shiv Sena party man, on condition of anonymity, said, “With elections just around the corner, inaugurations of developmental works were stalled owing to the spar between the corporators and the administration. Thackeray decided to mediate and asked both parties to amicably resolve the issue. In the meeting, the Sena corporators and the commissioner agreed to cooperate with each other.” Civic officials claimed as the civic chief may be transferred after the polls, he does not want to leave on a bitter note and hence agreed with Thackeray.

2019-09-10Eight Thane waterfront projects finally get HC nod - Mumbai Mirror
Eight Thane waterfront projects finally get HC nod Updated: Sep 10, 2019, 06:00 IST : The Bombay High Court on Monday cleared the decks for the development of eight waterfront areas across Thane, a pet project of the city’s municipal corporation. The court passed the order after the Thane Municipal Corporation (TMC) and Smart City Limited filed a petition that sought its approval and stated that they had secured the requisite permissions for the project. Smart City Limited is the company engaged to develop most of the waterfront projects. The TMC’s waterfront beautification project extends up to 10.58 km and covers an area of 7,22,000 sq meters. The waterfronts may include promenades, jogging tracks, walkways, playgrounds, cycle tracks, open gymnasium, food courts and benches. The court, on Monday, ordered the TMC and the company to strictly comply with all 12 of the Maharashtra Coastal Zonal Management Authority’s (MCZMA) conditions, based on which permission was granted to the project on March 1. “We direct that MCZMA, or a committee constituted by it, periodically supervise the execution of the work and at least once every six months visit the area to ensure that the 12 conditions imposed in the permission are not violated,” the court observed. The TMC and Smart City Limited told the division bench of Chief Justice Pradeep Nandrajog and Justice Bharati Dangre that not a single tree would be felled for the development of these water fronts. Senior Counsel Ram Apte, who appeared for the TMC, told Mirror that the project undertaken for the “protection, conservation and improvement of trees” will cost an estimated Rs 260 crore. The counsel said the MCZMA, State Environment Impact Assessment Authority, the forest department’s mangroves cell and the Maritime Board had granted permission to the projects over a span of three years. Their petition follows a separate plea by environmental activist Rohit Joshi and NGO Vanshakti in the Bombay High court against the project. The petition had claimed that reclamation of land for the project near Gaimukh along the Ghodbunder road had led to flooding in the area. Based on the NGO’s plea, the court had then asked the civic body to stop reclaiming land and dumping debris in mangrove areas on creek fronts at Saket, Kopri, Mumbra and Gaimukh till requisite permissions were obtained The Thane Municipal Corporation had proposed the waterfront development project in 2010, and work on the same commenced in 2017. The Parsik-Retibunder, Gaimukh, Kolshet, Kavesar-Waghbil, Kalwa-Sashtrinagar, Saket-Balkum, Nagla bunder and Kopri waterfronts will be beautified under the project. Smart City Limited will develop seven waterfronts and the Maharashtra Maritime Board will undertake the Gaimukh project.

2019-09-10Con on the cob: Nashik farmers cheated - Mumbai Mirror
Con on the cob: Nashik farmers cheated Updated: Sep 10, 2019, 06:00 IST : At least eight cases have come to light in a year, in which exporters from Mumbai and Thane have cheated farmers from Nashik by promising higher rates for their products. Ajit Patil, 46 Onion cultivator from Deopur Hasn’t been paid Rs 4.61 crorePATIL’S company, Vrindavan Export, was conned by the owners of a Sion Koliwada firm called Sreenathji Food Agro Pvt Ltd of Rs 4.61 crore. Patil’s company has been shut, he’s fallen into debt trap, and worse, the wife of Sreenathji Food’s owner has filed a police complaint against him alleging molestation. Gopi Shaikh, 48 Onion cultivator from Pimpalgaon Hasn’t been paid Rs 18 lakh SHAIKH was keen to expand business. He got into a deal with a Mumbai firm called Noor Imports and Exports, which owes him Rs 18 lakh. Shaikh filed a police complaint in August after the cheques issued by Noor bounced. Noor has filed a complaint against Shaikh at Azad Maidan Police Station saying Shaikh kidnapped him. Kisan Jadhav, 29 Grape farmer from Pimpalgaon Is a part of the group that hasn’t been paid Rs 30 lakh JADHAV, along with fellow grape cultivator Vaibhav Patil and 18 others were approached by a Thane-based exporter, Ravi Sharma, to sell their produce abroad a few months ago. Soon the payments stopped coming in and the dues mounted to Rs 30 lakh. After the farmers filed a police complaint, the cops found nobody at the address provided by the farmers. Mumbai’s conmen have found a new target: gullible farmers of Nashik. Over the past one year, eight cases have been registered with the police at Pimpalgaon, a town an hour’s drive from Nashik known for onion traders’ market. All eight cases involve farmers growing either onions or grapes and who were cheated by exporters based out of Mumbai and Thane. In all eight cases the exporters offered to buy the farmers’ produce for rates much higher than what they would get locally. While initial payments were made, cheques began bouncing subsequently. After chasing them for payments for months – making multiple visits to their offices and residences in Mumbai – when the cheated farmers filed police complaints, the businessmen filed counter-complaints of kidnapping, assault and even molestation against them in Mumbai and Nashik. Now the farmers are caught between making round of police stations and courts to recover the lost money on the one hand, and on the other defending themselves against trumped up charges. Some of these farmers dreamt of bettering their lot and floated their own companies. They acquired trading licences and started out on their own, but because they lacked both business expertise and experience, they were sitting ducks for the rogue traders. Ajit Patil, a 46-year-old onion farmer from Deopur village in Nashik’s Niphad tehsil, along with his six brothers launched a company named Vrindavan Export around seven years ago. Patil and his brothers initially conducted business without any outside help and did well for themselves. In 2014, four people from Sion Koliwada approached Patil with a deal to sell his produce at good prices abroad. They introduced themselves as executives of a company named Sreenathji Food Agro Pvt Ltd. Over the next four years, Patil not only sent his produce over to Sreenathji Food, he also collected grapes and onions from farmers around Pimpalgaon and handed these over to the company. It was all smooth for a few months, after which the payments stopped. Last year, Patil filed a police complaint against Sreenathji Food saying he hasn’t been paid Rs 4.61 crore. Patil’s company has been shut, he’s fallen into debt trap, and worse, the wife of Sreenathji Food’s owner has filed a police complaint against him alleging molestation. “I’m ruined,” says Patil, “Rajan Munni, who owns Sreenathji Food, is nowhere to be found. My complaint is pending since August last year and I am battling charges of molesting Munni’s wife. And I have to answer the creditors.” Interestingly, Munni was recently booked by the Bhoiwada police for allegedly cheating a 75-year-old Customs official of Rs 8.17 crore through a Ponzi scheme. Another farmer doing the rounds of a Mumbai police station is 48-yearold Gopi Shaikh from Pimpalgaon, who says a Mumbai exporter owes him Rs 18 lakh. Soon after the cheques issued by the exporter bounced, Shaikh filed a police complaint on August 17. He was in for a shock when he received a call a few days later from the Azad Maidan Police Station, where the exporter filed a cross-complaint saying Shaikh had ‘kidnapped’ him and forced him to sign on the cheques. Shaikh travels to Mumbai all the way from Pimpalgaon every time the police summons him. Shaikh, an onion farmer, says he “rues” the day he met the exporter, Maqbool Noor, who runs a firm called Noor Imports and Exports, and who sold him the idea to export his produce to Dubai. Shaikh had secured his trading licence in 2016 in the name of his firm Al-Umar Fruit and Vegetable Suppliers and was keen to expand his business. “Noor said that he had contacts in the Middle East and he could help me export my produce there. Between January 2018 and May this year, I supplied 29,000-kg onions, worth Rs 30 lakh, and got paid only Rs 12 lakh,” Shaikh says. He says that his is a fledgling company, launched with the help of a partner, and a loss of Rs 18 lakh is a death knell to his business. “Because a majority of our business is conducted on trust, I did not insist on documentation. Once the payments stopped coming, I made several trips to his office at Fort but couldn’t get a penny out of him because there was nothing on paper,” he says. The market in Pimpalgaon, near Nashik, where the farmers sell their produce On June 16 at the Pimpalgaon market, the two men had an altercation in full public view which landed at the police station. “Noor issued post-dated cheques of Rs 18 lakh in front of the cops at Pimpalgaon. All the cheques bounced and now there is a case against me saying I had kidnapped him and obtained the cheques forcefully,” Shaikh says. Noor’s son Ahmad claims that it was Shaikh’s intention to extort from his father. “Not only did he threaten my father, he went on to kidnap him during his visit to Pimpalgaon. He’s now playing the victim, but we have filed a case against him at Azad Maidan Police Station,” Ahmad says. Officers at both Azad Maidan and Pimpalgaon police stations would only say that all documents have been submitted before the court. Even as the law says that the accused in the cheque-bouncing cases will have to be immediately arrested and produced in court under the Negotiable Instruments Act, the complainant doesn’t get the money back immediately. In the cases where the farmers have filed a police complaint, the accused have managed to get bail. The farmers’ cases are also weakened by the fact that the business of agriculture in Maharashtra is run on trust, and there’s rarely anything on paper. Senior Inspector Sanjay Mahajan from Pimpalgaon Police Station stresses on this problem and says the farmers are vulnerable to frauds largely because trust has always been the backbone of the business of agriculture. “No agreements exist. The farmers don’t even know the names of the companies they are dealing with, leave alone their addresses,” he says. Mahajan says the police have launched a drive at all 18 villages near the Pimpalgaon market to make the farmers aware of such frauds. “We are stressing on the need to possess legal documents before entering into any deal.” Even then, the numbers of those cheated could be much larger than what the police complaints reflect. For instance, several farmers in Pimpalgaon and the nearby villages who have been similarly cheated haven’t approached the police fearing countercomplaints. They call it a double whammy: pay the lawyers to fight the case filed by them and pay another set of lawyers in Mumbai to defend them in cases filed by the exporters or their kin. Two such examples are onion cultivators Asif Shaikh and Shivaji Deore. Shaikh says he’s yet to receive Rs 19 lakh from a Mumbai-based trading company while Deore is waiting for an exporter to clear his dues amounting to Rs 24 lakh. Both haven’t approached the police; instead they are hoping for some sort of divine intervention or a miracle. In Deore’s case, he hasn’t received money for exports to Pakistan in the wake of the troubles between the two countries. Deore says the rogue exporters know how to “bully” the farmers. “The exporter in Mumbai who has to pay me issued the cheques, but brazenly told me that they’ll bounce. He said that I had a choice to wait or battle it out in the court. He says he’ll pay me once he receives the payments from other parties and I’m hoping he sticks to his word,” Deore told this newspaper. Can’t trace defaulters Another stumbling block for the farmers – and this goes back to the lack of documentation while doing the deal – is they are rarely able to provide the police with the defaulters’ addresses. In the case of Ajit Patil, all he knew was that Sreenathji Food Agro Pvt Ltd was operating out of a few buildings in Sion Koliwada. When the police reached the address, they found nobody. Similarly, grape cultivator Vaibhav Patil, who along with 20 other farmers was allegedly duped by a Thane-based exporter named Ravi Sharma of Rs 30 lakh, realised the addresses and contact details of Sharma could be fake when he found nobody at the address provided. “The police have informed us that the address we provided doesn’t exist. There is no sign of the exporter who owes us money,” Patil says.

Updated: Sep 11, 2019 03:38 IST : When eight-year-old Kartiki Chavan saw her father Kirankumar Chavan helping various organisations pack utilities for areas affected by the recent floods in Kolhapur and Sangli, she grew curious. When she asked her mother, Pratiksha, about it, she was told it was to help people affected by the floods who were struggling to return to normalcy. “I had some pocket money I had saved from the amount my parents gave me to buy snack items. I had also taken part in various competitions held for kids in our housing society during Ganeshotsav and won cash prizes. I had saved Rs 2,000 and I gave this money to my parents,” said Chavan. “My parents told me that because of the floods the families have lost all their belongings.

2019-09-09Skies Clear Up Over Mumbai; Heavy Rain to Persist in Kolhapur, Thane, Pune - The Weather Channel
Skies Clear Up Over Mumbai; Heavy Rain to Persist in Kolhapur, Thane, Pune After getting healthy rainfall of 54 mm on Monday, Mumbai’s suburbs are predicted to get only light to moderate rains on Tuesday. However, heavy rains are expected to continue in isolated parts of neighbouring Thane district, which got nearly 68 mm rainfall yesterday. For Tuesday, the IMD has predicted heavy rain (60-100 mm) at isolated places in the Konkan and Madhya Maharashtra subdivisions. Within Konkan, the heavy rainfall is predicted for Thane, Raigad, Ratnagiri and Sindhudurg districts, and within Madhya Maharashtra for Pune, Kolhapur and Satara. Authorities will be keeping a close eye on the situation in Kolhapur, where 800 people had been evacuated on Sunday following fears of the Panchganga river flooding its banks due to heavy rain in the catchment areas. A similar situation was also anticipated in Sangli, where the water level in the Krishna river had risen on Sunday. On September 6, National Disaster Response Force (NDRF) teams had been dispatched to evacuate residents from these districts as a precautionary measure. However, both Kolhapur and Sangli received only light rain on Monday. According to IMD data, Kolhapur received 4.3 mm rain on Monday (up to Tuesday morning 8.30 am), and Sangli merely 1 mm. The reduction in rain since Sunday would have come as a relief to people in those regions. However, major dams like the Koyna, Radhanagari and Warna were still discharging water on Monday, so things are not yet fully back to 'normal' for residents of Sangli and Kolhapur yet. In other parts of Madhya Maharashtra, Pune received just over 3 mm rainfall on Monday, while Satara recorded around 2 mm. Both Konkan/Goa and Madhya Maharashtra have received over 50% surplus rain this monsoon (as on September 9, 2019), while Marathwada as a subdivision faces a 19% shortfall. Vidarbha has received 4% more rain over the average for this period.
2019-09-09Three held by Thane police for writing railway test by remote access to computer - Times of India
Three held by Thane police for writing railway test by remote access to computer Updated: Sep 9, 2019, 10:27 IST : The Thane police have arrested three persons in a case wherein a remote access device was attached to a computer used for an exam of the Railway Recruitment Board (RRB). The exam was an online test. The police suspect this could be the tip of the iceberg, and a nationwide web exists for using such illegal means of helping exam candidates. An officer said the running cost for such “help” could be Rs 8-10 lakh per candidate. The modus operandi is that once the remote access device is connected to the examinee’s terminal, someone else takes the exam, the police said. The arrested men are Shivprakash Yadav, 24, a resident of Allahabad, Gopiram Singh, 25, manager of the examination centre Career Height, and candidate Jitin Sagar 24, a resident of Moradabad. The police are looking for another person, Ashish Shaw, who oversees the exam centre and lives in Kolkata. Based on a complaint, Kasarwadavali police started investigating the matter. A Computer-Based Test of RRB for the railway posts of junior engineer, depot material superintendent (DMS), chemical metallurgical assistant (CMA) was held on August 28. Earlier, a prelim was held, and the August 28 exam was the second stage test. Career Heights, based in Thane, was the exam control agency, which was also in coordination with a Chennai-based IT solution firm, said an officer. On that day, out of 300 listed candidates, 273 appeared for the exam. “Things got grim, when the controlling agency at Chennai found that there was some issue with system number 11 of the exam centre, as the candidate’s roll number was found on a leaked question paper that went viral on social media,” said senior inspector Kishor Khairnar. Another inspector, Vaibhav Dhumal, zeroed in on Sagar during the probe. The police checked CCTV footage, finding that Yadav, an office helper, was carrying the CPU concerned just an hour before the start of the exam. Upon being questioned, he revealed Sagar’s name, among other details. Another accused, Singh, told the police it was Shaw who told Singh to help Sagar with the necessary installations, said Khairnar. “While Sagar pretended to be busy during the exam, another person actually solved the paper using remote access.”

2019-09-09Cook who set wife ablaze in Maha 12 years ago held in B’luru - Times of India
Cook who set wife ablaze in Maha 12 years ago held in B’luru Updated: Sep 10, 2019, 4:52 IST : Bengaluru: On the run for 12 years, a 42-year-old man, who had allegedly murdered his wife in Maharashtra, was on Friday arrested in Bengaluru in an inter-state police operation. Thane special crime branch personnel and Jayanagar police arrested Suresh Sanjeev Shetty from a godown. He was working as a cook in Jayanagar 7th Block for five years. On March 20, 2007, Suresh had set his wife Meena, 30, ablaze under the influence of alcohol over a domestic fight. Later, he fled from Maharashtra and travelled to many places to avoid arrest. Meena, who sustained grievous injuries, gave a police statement before dying in the hospital that Suresh had set her afire. Kapurbawdi police in Thane had registered a case and probed the matter, but could not make any headway as they could not find anything about his antecedents. After the special crime branch of Thane police took over the case, constable Praveen went undercover and found out that Suresh was from Kundapura in Udupi district. Earlier this year, police visited Kundapura and discovered that Suresh left the village, where he had settled down after fleeing from Maharashtra. He had married another woman and shifted to Bengaluru. The team also collected his mobile phone number and traced him to Jayanagar 7th Block. On Friday morning, Thane sleuths, who arrived in the city, arrested Suresh in a joint operation with Jayanagar police and produced him before Banashankari police to obtain his body warrant. Probe revealed Suresh worked as a cook in ASG caterers owned by Satish Shetty. Suresh had worked as a cook in several hotels before joining the firm and used to stay in its godown. Police said Satish was not aware that Suresh had killed his first wife. Jayanagar police said while Suresh argued that his first wife had set herself ablaze, Thane sleuths confronted him with Meena’s statement in which she had blamed her husband for setting her on fire.
2019-09-09Mumbai: Heavy Rain Forecast on Monday - The Weather Channel
Heavy Rains Forecast in Mumbai, Thane on Monday; Conditions May Ease Afterwards Mumbai experienced a wet weekend, and more rains are expected on Monday. However, conditions are likely to ease from Tuesday onward, the IMD has indicated. According to the IMD's forecast issued Sunday afternoon, Mumbai is likely to get heavy rain at isolated places on Monday, while Thane and Palghar may get 'heavy to very heavy' rainfall at isolated places. At 3265.7 mm, suburban Mumbai has received 64% excess rainfall this season. The situation is similar in Thane and Palghar: at 3588.6 mm and 3377 mm respectively, the rain these regions received is 62% and 61% over the long-term average. From Tuesday, the IMD has forecast light to moderate rains up to Thursday. In 2010, Mumbai had received 3327.9 mm rainfall. It remains to be seen whether this limit will be breached before the end of September, but 2019 has certainly come extremely close. The city's average yearly rainfall of 2514 mm has already been crossed. On Sunday, the weather office had noted that the monsoon was active over Konkan-Goa (including Mumbai), south Madhya Maharashtra, and Saurashtra and Kutch in Gujarat. A cyclonic circulation associated with a low-pressure area near Madhya Pradesh is causing moisture-laden winds from the Arabian Sea to converge over Western and Central India. The system is expected to maintain its intensity for a couple of days more. On Sunday, the IMD's Santacruz observatory (the marker for rain in the suburbs) recorded 25.6 mm rain, and Colaba (Mumbai city) 13.6 mm. The previous day, the suburbs had recorded 119 mm and and Colaba 66.4 mm. Dahanu in Palghar district, around 110 km from Mumbai, recorded 146 mm rainfall on Saturday.

Six people were killed in rain-related incidents in Mumbai, Thane and Palghar last Wednesday. At least 1300 people on the banks of the Mithi river were evacuated after torrential downpours caused the river to flood its banks and inundate nearby low-lying areas.

2019-09-08Thane: Little boy fights stray dogs, his family to save rabbit from death - Times of India
Thane: Little boy fights stray dogs, his family to save rabbit from death Updated: Sep 8, 2019, 6:01 IST : THANE: A large heart is all you need to save a distressed soul! And a village kid has proved this by saving a helpless rabbit from certain death on two occasions. The little boy, about 10 or 12, hails from Kachner, a remote village in Aurangabad district. He remains anonymous as his folks were not too happy about his love for animals. TOI's attempts to contact the boy were futile. Only recently did he chance upon the rabbit which had become the target of a pack of stray dogs in his village, said Aditi Nair, founder of PAL, an animal rescue organisation from Thane which got the rabbit from the village and has now offered it refuge. The dogs were circling around the timid creature, abandoned by its master. They had bitten half of the rabbit's right ear off when the boy bundled him up away to safety. But the ordeal did not end there. As he chaperoned the it home, he was in for a rude shock as his family members wanted the rabbit out. They wanted the kid to get rid of the unwanted guest at once, said Nair who was unable to meet the child, much as he wished to. All I know that the kid's surname is Kakde. Eventually, elders in the family decided to give the rabbit away to a meat shop. Petrified at the thought, he smuggled his father's cellphone and got in touch with the rescue group from Thane, 350 km away from his village, with a prayer to save the rabbit's life. He secretly sent messages from his father's social media accounts. In his messages, he even promised the animal welfare group that he would repay them for the rabbit's expenses once he grew up. Initially, we thought it was a prank. But when he sent the rabbit's pictures, we were convinced, said Nair. When Nair reached the village home, his father and grandfather handed the rabbit over in a polythene bag, said Nair. Unfazed by the cold attitude of the elders, she is all praise for the boy. We have grown-ups who torture and kill animals. And then we have guardian angels like this boy, said Nair. We are looking for a home for the rabbit. Someone just like that little angel from Kachner village.

Devotees in Thane opt for green Ganpati celebrations Updated: Sep 08, 2019 01:26 IST : After the first five days of Ganeshotsav, around 17 tonnes of nirmalya or flower waste was collected from various locations across Thane. Thane Municipal Corporation (TMC) along with NGO Samarth Bharat Vyaspeeth collects floral waste to convert them into fertilisers at a Kopri unit. The civic body had placed nirmalya bins at various points near immersion ghats. “Last year, we collected only 15 tonnes of flower waste from nirmalya bins. This time, it has increased. There is an increased awareness among residents about discarding floral waste in nirmalya bins only,” said Bhatu Sawant, CEO of Samarth Bharat Vyaspeeth. The floral waste is sorted and converted into compost in 12 days. The compost manufactured from the waste is used as soil conditioner and helps retain the moisture and also adds nutrients to the soil. Residents said there was no respite in noise pollution. Many tweeted about it since the start of Ganeshotsav. The highest decibel level was recorded at 90db on the fifth day of immersion. Thane-based activist Mahesh Bedekar said, “The number of people using DJ or dhol tasha dipped by 30 per cent to 40 per cent this year. Ram Maruti Road saw decibel levels at 85db to 90db with some processions having a DJ and dhol tasha.” He said noise levels at 9pm on Friday touched 85dB at Gokhale Road, near a private hospital, as the immersion procession was playing banjo and dhol tasha. Although noise level dipped because many preferred the traditional dhol tasha, the ones who had opted for sound amplifiers added to the noise pollution.

2019-09-07Repaired potholes in Thane last till next downpour - Hindustan Times
Repaired potholes in Thane last till next downpour Updated: Sep 08, 2019 00:47 IST : The Thane Municipal Corporation’s (TMC)?promise of providing good roads for the 10-day Ganeshotsav festival has been washed down the drain with the heavy downpour this week. Brace for a roller coaster ride as most recently filled potholes and many new ones have resurfaced. The corporation has not conducted a survey of the number of potholes on roads, nor the number of potholes that were repaired in the last two weeks. Civic officials claimed that work of filling potholes is being undertaken at a war footing so that the roads will be smoother. The civic commissioner has also given orders to fill the potholes by Sunday. However, a status check has revealed that the potholes are filled with loose gravels, paver blocks and sand, which come off soon after being filled. The city has witnessed over 200mm of rainfall since September 3. Most roads in the city this year have caved in due to the pressure of heavy rainfall. The pothole situation is worse than the previous year, as hardly any area is free of them. The ongoing metro work combined with these potholes has led to massive peak hour congestion across the city. Anjali Sonawane, 33, a resident of Kalwa, said, “Most roads, including the Ghodbunder service road and Eastern Express service road are riddled with potholes. Potholes have surfaced on internal roads in Charai, Naupada, Wagale Estate, Brahmand, Kolshet and Khopat areas. The situation is the same in Kalwa, where the entire road from Kharegaon to Kalwa Naka is riddled with potholes.” The corporation has spent more than ?70 lakh in the monsoon to fill potholes. Crores are spent every year in concretising and developing new road networks in the city, but there is no relief for commuters. Swapnil Sinalkar, 35, a resident of Thane, said, “Every year, the corporation used to conduct a survey of potholes. This year, they have not surveyed the potholes nor have they given a data on how many potholes are filled. Potholes are filled using loose stones, soil or paver blocks, which come out immediately. The problem will not arise if the road work is of good quality.” The corporation said though they have surveyed the potholes, the numbers keep changing with every downpour or pothole filling work. Ravindra Khadtale, city engineer of TMC, said, “The work of filling potholes is continuously going on. We had filled most of the potholes since August 25. However, the potholes reappeared after heavy downpour this week. The civic commissioner has given orders to fill all potholes by Sunday. We have accordingly started the work to ensure that people immersing Ganesh idols on the seventh and tenth day of immersion do not suffer due to bad roads.”

47-year-old Thane woman gets life sentence for killing man who refused to marry her Updated: 07th September 2019 08:37 PM : THANE: A 47-year-old woman has been sentenced to life imprisonment by the Thane district court in Maharashtra for a 2013 murder. District judge P P Jadhav also imposed a fine of Rs 25,000 on the convict, Geeta Jaiswal, in the ruling earlier this week. Another convict, Soti alias Malkar Chetti Yadav, 48, died at the government-run JJ Hospital in Mumbai last month before the verdict was pronounced. Jaiswal, a married woman with two daughters, worked as a scrap segregator for a scrap trader in Wagle Estate area here. Rampal Bhagwat Gupta, 40, the victim, worked as a driver for her employer. According to the prosecution, Jaiswal had arranged a loan of Rs 10,000 for Gupta from another woman, and she had been badgering him to return the money for some time. She also wanted to marry him, to which Gupta was not ready, the police said. On October 11, 2013, she took Gupta to Navi Mumbai in the auto-rickshaw of Soti, an acquaintance. She and Soti killed Gupta by hitting him with a stone at an isolated spot, the police told the court. During the trial, Jaiswal, who is married, pleaded for leniency, saying she had two daughters to look after. The judge convicted her for murder under IPC section 302, holding that "chain of circumstances" showing her culpability was established by the prosecution. However, it was not a "rarest of rare case" to attract death penalty, so she was being sentenced to life imprisonment, the judge said.

The girl approached the police on Friday and told them that the accused had also offered her Rs 10 lakh in lieu of registering a false case. At the time of going to press, the police was still recording the girl's statements. The girl and her parents told mediapersons before going to the police that on July 10, she had gone to one Dr Kamlesh Sharma's clinic where the medico used a sedative to make her unconscious. She said that when she woke up, she found herself locked in a room. The girl told TOI: "For 10 days, the abductors threatened me and said I have to file a false case against Kalani and his associates Pankaj Tilokani and Roshan Makhija. They said they would kill my parents." When the girl finally agreed, she was let off, she said. Her father told the media that he filed a complaint with the police when his daughter went missing but when she returned after 10 days and told us what had happened, we decided to not file a false case. The family alleged that when a false case was not filed, BJP leader Amit Wadhwa started threatening her again. Fed up with the harassment, the family decided to approach the police. They told the media they have been making rounds of the police station for a week and the cops agreed to take down their statements only on Friday. Wadhwa said, "Kalani is trying to implicate me. In a 2017 attempt to murder case too, he tried to malign my image." Kalani told TOI: "My opponents are trying to file a false case but luckily, the girl and her parents stood with the truth."

2019-09-06These fibre flowers ‘planted’ in Thane cost ?6,236 each - Hindustan Times
These fibre flowers ‘planted’ in Thane cost ?6,236 each Updated: Sep 07, 2019 01:22 IST : After the exorbitant cost of murals in Old Thane New Thane park hit the headlines, another overpriced project of the Thane Municipal Corporation has come to light. The corporation has spent more than ?15 lakh on installing around 245 fibre flowers below the Kapurbawdi flyover, claimed BJP corporator Milind Patankar on Thursday. This means that a one-foot artificial flower costs ?6,236. The ruling party has also alleged that the proposal for installing the flowers along with other beautification works was tabled under the 5 (2) (2) clause of the Mumbai Municipal Corporation Act, which only pertains to emergency works. Patankar, in a letter to the state government, has alleged that not just this project, but the corporation has also approved the installation of four sculptures along four lakes in the city under emergency provision. Each sculpture costs around ?7 lakh. As per the 5 (2) (2) clause, there is no need to call tenders or quotations for any emergency work, it can be given to any agency of choice to speed up the work. Patankar said, “The corporation gave the contract of beautification of the garden below the flyover to a private company in March. The proposal said around 245 aesthetic sculptures will be installed in the seven small lawns below the flyover in half a square feet area. No tenders for the work were floated and the work was undertaken under emergency head. The work does not qualify as emergency work. It could have being done in eight months instead of eight days by following a proper procedure.” Patankar said the flowers, which cost ?6,236 each, might not even cost ?100 in the market. “The corporation has paid ?15.28 lakh for the flowers. There should be an inquiry into who decided the cost of the flowers. I have written to the state chief secretary to initiate an inquiry into this. Also, four sculptures worth ?7.28 lakh have been installed along four lakes. The corporation has undertaken beautification works worth ?29 lakh under emergency projects.” A TMC official said, “We have not yet cleared the bill of the agency which installed the flowers. We will check the sculptures and then clear the bill. In case of emergency proposals, the corporation had signed a Memorandum of Understanding with few agencies under the Mahaparivartan Scheme of the chief minister. The beautification works were carried out under the scheme, so no tenders were floated.”

2019-09-05Low-lying areas in Thane, Bhiwandi inundated, water enters homes - Yahoo India News
Low-lying areas in Thane, Bhiwandi inundated, water enters homes 5 September 2019 : Thane: Heavy rain caused waterlogging in many low-lying areas of Bhiwandi and Thane on Wednesday morning. As a result, Vrindavan Road in Thane had to be closed for two hours and was reopened later, when the intensity of the rain diminished. At Gaimukh Naka on Ghodbunder Road, Thane, heavy rain put the brakes on the movement of Volvo buses on the Thane-Borivli route. Services were resumed only when the rain slowed down, informed officials of the regional disaster management cell (RDMC). Improper cleaning of the nullah in the Shelar gram panchayat area of Bhiwandi rural, led to drainage water accumulation at Nadi Naka, Durga Apartment, Latif Compound and Aatarpada. Water began entering houses in Nadi Naka in Bhiwandi, with as much as 3-4 feet accumulation in some homes, causing anxiety and inconvenience to the residents.Munna Gaud from Shelar village said, “This situation happens every year as the nullah is low-lying and has not been properly cleaned, which causes water­logging. No Shelar gram pan­chayat authority is taking the matter seriously.” Cars, trucks and two-wheelers were seen stuck for over 30 minutes at the Nadi Naka Shelar village, which is connected to the Gujarat highway. But there was no traffic authority to manage the situation. Vehicles were seen moving with their tyres completely submerged in water.

2019-09-05Waste management: Thane civic body will assist residents to set up compost pits - Hindustan Times
Waste management:?Thane civic body will assist residents to set up compost pits Updated: Sep 06, 2019 02:59 IST : After a first failed attempt to make residential societies treat their own waste, the Thane Municipal Corporation (TMC) is now giving it a second shot. It will be a much softer approach at convincing bulk generators to treat their own waste. The solid waste department has claimed they will try to understand the issues of the people and find solutions so that societies can install the system. The assistant sanitation inspector of every area will visit the residential societies and tell them of the importance of waste treatment plants. The corporation has also posted on their website a list of vendors, who can assist the societies in setting up the plant. With Assembly elections approaching, the stand of the ruling party, which had earlier opposed to compulsion imposed on societies, will also play a role in its implementation. The non co-operation from the societies to treat their solid waste was also one of the prime reasons for the corporation losing points in the Swachh Survekshan rankings this year. An official from solid waste department said, “As per the solid waste management rules of 2016, it is compulsory for societies which generate more than 100 kg of waste to treat their own waste.” “Although we had faced opposition from the societies and the politicians the first time, societies should understand that these are the rules of the Central government and they need to be followed. All societies will have to treat their waste. We have decided to start a dialogue with the societies this time,” he said. The corporation had sent out notices to the residential societies to compulsorily treat their waste in November 2017. It had made it mandatory for the societies to treat the waste and said that if they didn’t do so, the garbage of such societies would not be picked up. The ultimatum received lot of opposition for the corporation from the societies and the ruling party. “We have to pick up garbage as it will create hygiene issues in the city. We have decided that inspectors from different areas will visit the societies in their areas and convince them to compost the waste. Our employees will also help resolve the issues related to availability of space and different methods to adopt. The societies can start with a small pit. The project can be taken on a large scale after the result.” He said the first target will be commercial establishments, following which, the housing societies will be targeted. Around 50 societies started composting their waste after the notice, while a few were already doing it before the notices were sent out. The societies said the corporation should provide them expertise and they do not want to deal with vendors. Kasber Augustine, the founder of Thane Citizens’ Foundation (TCF), said, “We are not against waste management, but we want our issues to be addressed.” “We had demanded that the corporation provide a land for several societies for composting in each ward. The corporation can provide us expertise and we are ready to pay a nominal fees to them,” he said. “However, we do not want to deal with any vendor who might vanish in few months, leaving us in the lurch. We will put in 50% efforts while the corporation should put in the remaining 50% to resolve the problem,” he added. ‘Give us tax rebate’ Kasber Augustine, founder of Thane Citizen’s Foundation, sought tax rebate for composting waste. An official from the solid waste dept said, “The rebate at present is not applicable for those societies who compulsorily have to treat their waste. Those societies, who are not bound to compost their waste, but are still composting will get a rebate.” The ruling party has claimed that since the TMC has just put the notice online and not made it mandatory, they will not be taking a stand at present. Naresh Mhaske of Shiv Sena, leader of the TMC house, said, “We will oppose the project if the societies have any problems implementing it.”

2019-09-04Thane mayor, civic chief at loggerheads - The Indian Express
Thane mayor, civic chief at loggerheads Published: September 5, 2019 2:45:15 am : The Thane mayor and municipal commissioner are once again at loggerheads. Mayor Minakshi Shinde wrote a mail to the chief minister complaining about the civic chief on Tuesday. The official complaint letter demanding action was sent on Wednesday, sources said. Following the tussle in General Body Meeting (GBM) of the House where opposition leaders brought up the condition of the Chhatrapati Shivaji hospital in Kalwa, commissioner Sanjeev Jaiswal is said to have asked for time to look into the matter before the next sitting of the GBM. However, his request was denied, which led to municipal officials boycotting the meeting. “In that meeting, some corporators demanded that a no-confidence motion be passed against the commissioner. While that is in process, I wrote to the CM regarding his behaviour and attitude towards the elected members,” Shinde said. “He has been disrespectful, doesn’t attend meetings and has come only once for the celebration of Independence Day and Republic Day in my five-year tenure,” she added. The mayor also complained that the commissioner had disrespected the elected members whenever they have been critical of him or his staff. “Not attending meetings and not listening to the corporators doesn’t behove an IAS officer. I have brought all of this to the CM’s notice,” she said. Jaiswal did not respond to calls or messages from the The Indian Express. According to sources, he had written a confidential letter to the mayor last week listing his achievements and claiming that he was working for the development of the people of Thane. In the letter, Jaiswal claimed he was “hurt” by the attitude of corporators who were trying to oppose and malign the municipal administration, sources said. In the past, the commissioner and the mayor have been at loggerheads over various administration decisions. In 2018, the commissioner had taken out a press release claiming the mayor had thwarted supply of funds intended for his projects and had not approved of a trip he was to take to UK for a project he had proposed. The civic chief’s happiness index projects meant for the city have also gone in vain due to lack of approval in the past.

The IMD has issued an “Orange Alert” for Mumbai, Thane and Raigad districts for Wednesday, 4 September. The state government has declared a holiday in all schools across Mumbai, Thane and Konkan.In view of ongoing rains & forecast, holiday is declared for today for all schools in Mumbai, Thane and Konkan region. District collectors of other parts of Maharashtra will decide on school holiday, depending on the local rainfall situation. #MumbaiRainsLiveUpdates— ashish shelar (@ShelarAshish) September 4, 2019The IMD has four levels of warnings: Green (No Warning: no action); Yellow (Watch: be updated); Orange (Alert: Be prepared); Red (Warning: take action).Mumbai rain forecastMumbai is likely to get very heavy rain all through Wednesday, particularly in the second half. Rain may abate for a few hours on Thursday morning but is likely to pick up again later in the day and continue all the way till the end of Friday, at least.To those asking this rainy spell in Mumbai will continue throughout this week. Next 36-48 hours rains will be at its heaviest after that intensity will decrease once UAC over North Konkan/South Gujarat weakens. Short breaks in rains key to avoid severe waterlogging. #MumbaiRains pic.twitter.com/56ZoytL9lI— Mumbai Weather (@IndiaWeatherMan) September 4, 2019Mumbai high tideMumbai will sea high tide at 3.17pm on Wednesday; and on Thursday at 4.05am, 10.07am and 4.00pm. Typically, flooding and water-logging is exacerbated if the city sees heavy rain around the same time the tide comes in.But the worst hit of this spell of rain will be taken by the Konkan coast. If you’re planning to drive along the Mumbai-Goa highway, you may want to take a rain-check. Heavy to very heavy rain is forecast for the next 3 days, and this could severely affect visibility and driving conditions. Konkan Railway trains are running on schedule so far, but these could get affected too.

2019-09-04Mumbai: Thane mayor writes to CM about civic chief's insubordination - India Today
Mumbai: Thane mayor writes to CM about civic chief's insubordination UPDATED: September 4, 2019 12:16 IST : Thane Mayor Meenakshi Shinde has complained to Maharashtra Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis against the city civic commissioner Sanjeev Jaiswal over his alleged insubordination. Shinde, in her letter written to Fadnavis on Tuesday, claimed Jaiswal did not give much importance to the Thane Municipal Corporation's (TMC) general body meetings and also asked his officials not to attend them. "He attends specific meetings with vested interest. He also failed to attend the TMC's flag hoisting functions on January 26 and August 15," she said in the letter. She requested Fadnavis to direct Jaiswal to attend TMC's general body meetings and desist from abusing the elected representatives and making allegations against them. Notably, some members of the TMC's general body last week proposed a no-confidence motion against Jaiswal and requested the mayor to call a special meeting for it. The general body expressed unhappiness over some of the proposals of the civic administration, alleging irregularities in them. Earlier, Jaiswal, who has completed over four years in office, in a letter written to the mayor last Saturday, listed his achievements and said he was working for the development of the city and its citizens. In the letter, marked as confidential but leaked on social media, he said the corporators were opposing proposals of the administration and levelling allegations against it. Jaiswal said he was "hurt" by such an attitude of the corporators. He asked the mayor to call a meeting and let the TMC's general body decide on the proposed no-confidence motion against him before the announcement of the model code of conduct for the upcoming state Assembly elections.

Thane: Woman who killed ‘alcoholic’ husband gets life sentence Updated: Sep 4, 2019, 5:39 IST : THANE: A court has convicted a 38-year-old homemaker for killing her husband and sentenced her to life imprisonment. Chandarakala Bhoir, from Khatkariwadi of Khanivali in Wada taluka, was found guilty by district judge P P Jadhav under section 302 of IPC and fined Rs 5,000. The prosecutor told court the couple was married, with a teenage daughter and Chandrakant Bhoir (35), a farmer, was addicted to alcohol and would often demand money from her. The accused was reluctant to oblige him, which resulted in frequent quarrels. She attacked her husband with a sickle at home around 9.40pm on September 17, 2016. She was also annoyed as he used to repeatedly beat up their daughter, which is why she took the extreme step, the prosecution told court. The defence counsel pointed out several lapses the prosecution’s version. The judge noted, “..though the confession before the police patil cannot be said to be reliable and conclusive proof, the other evidence on record clearly established the involvement of accused in assault upon her husband by means of sickle. From all circumstantial evidence on record and false explanation by the accused, as well as from the medical evidence, the prosecution has proved beyond reasonable doubt that it is the accused who caused the death of her husband Chandrakant by assaulting him by means of sickle”. The judge noted in his order that the prosecution had proved all charges against the accused beyond reasonable doubt, for which the accused had to be convicted and sentenced. The case rested on circumstantial evidence and records placed before court.

2019-09-03Heavy rains lash Konkan, Goa; Thane-Belapur tops with 190mm - Times of India
Heavy rains lash Konkan, Goa; Thane-Belapur tops with 190mm Updated: Sep 4, 2019, 4:23 IST : Pune: A strong revival of the monsoon resulted in heavy to very heavy rains at 23 places in Konkan and Goa over the 24 hours ending 8.30am on Tuesday. Several locations in Konkan recorded triple-digit rains over the period, including Thane-Belapur (190mm), Uran (170mm) and Ratnagiri and Thane (140mm). Rains in isolated parts of the state will continue to be heavy while Pune city will receive moderate showers. The 190mm rain that Thane-Belapur received was the second-highest downpour during the 24-hour period, after Kollur in Karnataka at 210mm. At least 10 locations in the state recorded triple-digit rain during the period. Anupam Kashyapi, head of weather, India Meteorological Department (IMD), Pune, told TOI that a cyclonic circulation has formed over Kutch and its neighbourhood, which was expected to shift to north Maharashtra. “Earlier conditions that activated the monsoon in the state will stay, like the offshore trough from the south Maharashtra coast to the Kerala coast, the monsoon low over northwest Bay of Bengal and adjoining north Odisha-West Bengal coasts, as well as the East-West shear zone tilting southwards,” he said. Kashyapi said that though the monsoon low from Bay of Bengal has a slow movement, it is the combined effect of these factors that made the monsoon active to vigorous not only in Konkan, but in major parts of the state. Kashyapi said there was significant clouding over Maharashtra on Tuesday, as the satellite images were indicating, with strong westerlies coming from the Arabian Sea. “We expect the rainfall activity to reduce from September 5 forenoon in Madhya Maharashtra, Marathwada and Vidarbha, but Konkan would continue to remain on a isolated heavy rain warning till September 6-7,” he said. In the 24-hour period ending 8.30pm on Tuesday, only Gaganbawada in Madhya Maharashtra received triple-digit rains (110mm), while four locations in Vidarbha received heavy rains — Desaiganj, Kurkheda, Umrer and Arjuni Morgaon. On September 4 and 5 too, heavy to very heavy rains are expected at isolated locations in Konkan-Goa and heavy rains at isolated places in Madhya Maharashtra. The ghat areas in Pune and Satara districts will continue to have the “heavy rain at isolated places” warning till September 5. Kolhapur district, meanwhile, is likely to see heavy rain at isolated places in the ghat areas on September 4 only. The IMD expects light to moderate rains over Pune city too on September 4, with spells of intense, moderate rain at times.

The woman’s suicide note blamed her estranged husband and in-laws for physically and mentally assaulting her for many years. She had complained several times against her husband and in-laws in a police station in Kutch and was also fighting a custody battle over her two sons. The Kasarvadavli police have registered a case of abetment to suicide against the woman’s husband, mother-in-law, father-in-law and brother-in-law. The police have also booked a police sub-inspector of Rapar police station in Kutch district, following allegations from the family that he ignored her complaints. A police officer, requesting anonymity, said, “The woman is from Kutch. She shifted to Thane a month ago with her parents and her brother after complaining of harassment by her in-laws. On Sunday, her brother had gone for work and her parents were not at home. She called one of her relatives in Navi Mumbai and said she was ‘leaving’.” He sensed something amiss and alerted her brother. Her brother rushed home but the door was locked from inside. The police officer said, “After he alerted us, we broke the lock and found them dead.” The couple got married in 2011. Her husband works in car service centre in Rapar village of Kutch district. “Since September 2017, she has lodged several complaints of harassment against the husband and in-laws. In February this year, she left her husband’s house. Her husband allegedly took the children back several times after which she filed a custody case. The court ordered the children to stay with her but her husband refused to follow the court order. Few months ago, she filed a case in Ahmedabad high court for the children’s custody.” The woman’s family alleged that the villagers, too, harassed her family. “Few weeks ago, her husband tried to attack the woman’s mother, who was riding her scooter with one of the kids sitting pillion. Tired of the harassment, the family left the village and came to Thane, where they rented an apartment. “We found a suicide note written in Gujarati. She has said her husband and in-laws had been harassing her. She also wrote that her brothers should perform the last rites and not her husband. We have registered a case of abetment against the husband and in-laws,” the police said, adding that a team has gone to Kutch to probe the case.

2019-09-032 FIRs can't be lodged in same offence: Maharashtra court - Times of India
2 FIRs can't be lodged in same offence: Maharashtra court Updated: Sep 3, 2019, 15:44 IST : THANE: More than one FIRs cannot be lodged in the same offence, a Thane court in Maharashtra has said while acquitting 10 people accused in an over 25-year-old case of attempt to murder and rioting. The ultimate objective of every investigation is to find out whether the offence is alleged to have been committed and if so, who committed it, additional sessions judge AS Pandharikar observed in his order issued last Thursday. According to the prosecution, the families of one Tatya Patel and Kesharinath Mhatre, an activist of a political party, were into the business of supplying construction material to developers. On February 10, 1994, members of Patel's family and some others, armed with weapons, came to Mhatre's house at Kashi village in Thane district, and warned him against supplying the construction material to a contractor. They also threw a fireball at Mhatre's house, following which a part of it got damaged. Seventeen people were booked under Indian Penal Code Sections 307 (attempt to murder), 342 (wrongful confinement), 143, 147, 148, 149 (for unlawful assembly and rioting), 436 and 427 (mischief). Of these, three are still absconding, while four died during the course of trial in the case. Judge Pandharikar took recourse to a 2013 Supreme Court ruling, while acquitting the remaining 10 accused. He said on perusal of the prosecution's theory, it is clear two FIRs have been registered for the same incident. Referring to the apex court ruling, he said, The legal position is that there cannot be two FIRs against the same accused in the same case. When there are rival versions of the same episode, they would normally take the shape of two different FIRs and the investigation can be carried out under both of them by the same probing agency, he said. Apart from that, the report submitted to the court by way of subsequent FIR needs to be considered as an information about new discovery made by police during investigation that persons named in the first FIR were the real culprits. In the present case, the complainant (Mhatre's wife) herself does not know the names of all the accused. Then, who is the person who inserted the name of the accused in the complaint? This question remains unanswered, he observed. The ultimate objective of every investigation is to find out whether the offence is alleged to have been committed and if so, who committed it, the judge said. There can be no second FIR for fresh investigation or on receipt of every subsequent information in respect of cognizable offence or of the same occurrence giving rise to one or more cognizable offences. Only the first complaint can be regarded as an FIR, the court said. In view of this observation of the Supreme Court, I am of the view that the prosecution has failed to prove its case beyond all reasonable doubts, he said while acquitting the accused.

2019-09-02Thane: Dholaki makers face poor living conditions, apathy - The Indian Express
Thane: Dholaki makers face poor living conditions, apathy Published: September 2, 2019 7:05:00 am : THE FESTIVAL of Ganesh Chaturthi is unimaginable without the beat of the dholaki, a hand-held percussion instrument, used throughout the day and more so during the aartis. As one of the many traditional instruments, it is a familiar character in festivals and joyous occasions across India. For more than a month, special artisans from across the country move with their families to Kalyan city to make and sell the prized dholakis. The vendors, generally younger men of the families, travel far and wide into Mumbai and its suburbs selling the instruments. Living in crammed and temporary shanties or unfinished buildings, the artisans spend hours making these instruments, fetching a small profit, all for the sake of keeping a tradition alive. But apathy from the civic administration has led artisans to decide that they will not be coming back to the city from next year. According to Hamid Shaikh, one of the oldest of the community, the artisans belong to the same gharana. “We all have shared ancestry and for at least six generations, we have been coming here. My family is from Narela, near New Delhi, but other artisans have come from other parts of the country like Rajasthan, Uttar Pradesh and Gujarat,” says the 60-year-old. The artisans buy the frame of the instrument, hollow cylinders made of materials ranging from plywood to expensive wood like deodar, from factories in UP. “We pool in money and get the frames delivered here. Armed with our bedding, bare essentials and layers of resinous sheets, we come here by train when the month of Muharram starts,” he says. This year, some artisans came in early to start working on the instruments, only to be tormented by rain. Living in an under-construction building inside the APMC Market in Kalyan, they were marooned for a day after the region was flooded due to heavy rain on July 26. “The nearby Kolis came to rescue us in their boats. I thought we were going to die when help came at 2 am in the night,” says Asifa Shaikh (32), the wife of one of the artisans Mohammad Irfan (36). After calculating their losses due to the rain, the artisans say they will make minimum profit from their wares. “Some mandals come to us and buy the dholakis. We also supply our items to several shops and individual customers in Mumbai too. But the numbers are decreasing,” Irfan says. Living in apalling conditions, the 30-odd families share a common ground behind their building as a “toilet”. With dark clouds of flies hovering above them, women cook right where the men shave, polish and cure the wood in making the dholakis. “Our children have no future, most of them fall ill here. It’s time to question why we come here at all,” says Akbar Shaikh (28), one of the artisans. “It has been a yearly phenomenon since our childhood. When old wadas existed in Kalyan, people respected the artisans and their wares were used not only during puja but also in social events,” says historian Akshay Pagare from Kalyan.
2019-09-02Alert Kanjurmarg resident averts major derailment of Thane-bound fast local train - Mumbai Mirror
Alert Kanjurmarg resident averts major derailment of Thane-bound fast local train Updated: Sep 2, 2019, 09:15 IST : The alertness of a Kanjurmarg local helped avert what could have been a major train mishap when, on noticing a crack in the track, the man immediately alerted the motorman of a Thane-bound fast local train around 8.40 am on Sunday. Darshan Chauhan, who cultivates vegetables on the railway’s land and lives beside the track since 1991, was going to answer nature’s call when a damaged part of the rail caught his attention. On seeing a training speeding towards him soon after, Chauhan started swinging his umbrella and gesturing to the motorman to stop the train. According to sources, about five minutes before the incident, a Badlapur-bound local train had passed from the same track. “Motorman DL Pawar of Badlapur-5 local had informed the control room at 8.36 am that his train had suffered a heavy jerk at the said point between Kanjurmarg and Bhandup. On checking, we found a rail fracture measuring 1-1.25 feet,” said a Central Railway (CR) official. “This is a very bad failure of a glued joint which is highly unusual. Such failure in automatic signalling territory can result in bad derailment as no safeguard is available in standard operating procedure,” said Subodh Jain, former CR General Manager. Shivaji Sutar, CR CPRO said, “Services on affected lines were resumed within 75 minutes. Meanwhile, trains were diverted on the down slow line. Technical investigation to ascertain the cause of the fracture is on. The crew and control staff will be suitably rewarded for averting the disaster.”
2019-09-02Central Railway’s AC local may run from Thane to Vashi - Mumbai Mirror
Central Railway's AC local may run from Thane to Vashi Updated: Sep 2, 2019, 09:10 IST: The Goregaon-CSMT route was nixed after CR found that the AC local wouldn’t be able to pass through the low overbridges along the way. The Central Railway (CR) is now likely to run its first air-conditioned local train on the Trans-Harbour Line, on Thane-Vashi and Thane-Panvel routes, according to sources. The CR was earlier considering introducing it on the Harbour Line, between CSMT and Goregaon, or the main suburban line. However, there are British-era bridges on both routes and the train is ‘too tall’ to pass under them – its height is over the permissible limit of 4.270 metres. There are at least three spots – two between Wadala and Sandhurst Road, and another near Chembur – where the decadesold overbridges have reduced the space between the tracks and the overhead equipment. A 4.270-metre train will ensure electrical clearing of 2.50 metres between the roof and the overhead equipment while stationary and 2.70 metres when in motion. “The third AC rake is at least 15 mm above the permissible height of 4.270 metres and will be considered unsafe,” a CR official said on August 23. He said the option of lowering the height of the tracks was also not available as the majority of the tracks were in lowlying areas that get flooded during the rains. There are no such infrastructural issues on the Trans-Harbour Line. Compared to other routes, there are fewer services on this line, so it is possible to introduce new trains. The proposed new airport at Navi Mumbai will also benefit from additional services. Railway Minister Piyush Goyal held a high-level meeting on Sunday, which was attended by officials from Central Railway, Western Railway, Konkan Railway, Mumbai Rail Vikas Corporation, and Dedicated Freight Corridor. “The minister wants to speed up infrastructure-related projects in the Mumbai Metropolitan Region. He also wants a speedy completion of the dedicated freight corridor, which will free up space for more trains on the Mumbai-Delhi route,” a CR official said. On Sunday Goyal also instructed officials to increase train services on the Vasai-Diva-Panvel route, according to the official. Currently, frequency on this route is very low, and passengers have to wait for more than an hour for trains. After the meeting Goyal tweeted: “Reviewed the progress of projects related to passenger amenities, installation of information boards on foot overbridges, increase in air-conditioned coaches in local trains, speedy execution of [Mumbai Urban Transport Project] projects and completion of dedicated freight corridor.”

Alert guard, vendor help avert Thane train accident Updated: Sep 02, 2019 00:43 IST : The accident of a Thane-bound fast local train was averted on Sunday morning, thanks to a railway guard and an unidentified vegetable vendor who allegedly alerted the motorman to halt the train before a rail fracture on the tracks between Kanjurmarg and Bhandup stations. Rail fracture is a crack that develops owing to external causes on the tracks, often leading to derailment of trains. Services resumed on the fast line at 10.04am. While one fast local train was crossing the fracture spot, the guard on-board witnessed a jerk. He informed the Central Railway (CR) control room and the guard of the other fast local train. When the second fast local train was approaching, the vegetable vendor who was working beside the railway track reportedly waved an umbrella on spotting the rail fracture and alerted the motorman to halt the train. The motorman and the guard successfully halted the train seconds before the rail fracture spot. “Information was received from the train guard regarding the rail fracture. The Thane fast local train was stopped. Fast local train services were diverted on the slow local train corridor. The crew of the train and the control official will be awarded for averting any untoward incident,” said Shivaji Sutar, chief public relations officer, CR.

Kalyan duo tries to con bank customers, rams car into cop Updated: Sep 1, 2019, 18:36 IST : KALYAN: Two history-sheeters allegedly tried to kill a policeman by dashing their vehicle against him while fleeing on a busy road here on Friday. Constable Amol Gore is serious in Fortis hospital's ICU. The accused had allegedly come near a bank to loot customers by diverting their attention, when police tried to nab them. Abbas Ukani alias Raju alias Datta Shinde and Mukesh Menon, who have been booked for attempt to murder, are involved in around 50 cases in Maharashtra and Gujarat, of which they were earlier arrested in 30 cases. Police sources said due to a recent rise in cases of gangs targeting bank customers by diverting their attention, an anti-robbery squad was on patrol. They noticed Ukani outside Kotak Bank, going to HDFC Bank, around 50 metres away, while Menon was waiting in a car. An official said, When we went to nab the accused, Ukani fled to the car. He instructed Menon to drive and hit Gore, who had come in front. The accused fled in the car, while other policemen rushed Gore to hospital. Mahatma Phule police have registered an attempt to murder case against the duo and Thane police have formed teams to nab them. Assistant commissioner of police (Kalyan region) Anil Powar said, We have formed teams and we are hopeful of nabbing the accused very soon. Ukani and Menon have been arrested several times by Gujarat, Pune and Thane police. After getting bail, they repeat the crimes and are wanted in around 20 more cases. Police said Ukani uses various identities and carries bogus identity proof to avoid getting caught.

2019-09-01Maharashtra: Ganesha to be greeted by potholes in Kalyan - Times of India
Maharashtra: Ganesha to be greeted by potholes in Kalyan Updated: Sep 1, 2019, 20:26 IST : KALYAN: The civic bodies of Kalyan-Dombivli, Ulhasnagar and Ambernath city promised pothole free roads for Ganeshotsav but with a day left for the Ganesh festival to start the potholes are still not filled at many places. Meanwhile, at some places where potholes were filled they have cropped up again following the showers in the city. The potholes are likely to create major nuisance with the arrival of Ganpati on Monday. The KDMC had assured city citizens that roads would be reinstated well before the arrival of Ganpatis and started filling potholes but failed to complete their promise, as potholes are back in place again. The KDMC blamed the intermittent rains for resurfacing of potholes again on road. Rambaug, Valdhuni, Patripul and Dombivali's Tata Power House road and many internal roads in Kalyan are still left riddled with potholes. Similarly, the Ambernath civic body had claimed to fill potholes at many places ahead of Ganesh festival but in reality many roads still have potholes. Interestingly, some BJP workers protesting against potholes on main Ambernath rail over bridge filled potholes using crushed stones but they did not use bitumen resulting into skidding of vehicles. Founder of Ambernath citizens forum Satyajit Burman said, The Ambernath civic body has failed to repair roads before Ganesh festival as potholes still exists on KB Road, Navre Nagar, Lok Nagari, File Nagar, Shiv Ganga Nagar and Anand Nagar MIDC area. Similarly, Ulhasnagar civic body had assured to fill potholes ahead of Ganesh festival but major roads still have big potholes. The MNS (Maharashtra Navnirman Sena) on Friday even protested against UMC (Ulhasnagar Municipal Corporation) over the issue. Vinod Kene, Public Relations Officer of UMC said, Instructions have been issued at ward levels to repair potholes at the earliest. Majority of potholes filling has already been done,” he said.
