Say hello to the crorepati police constable from Thane By Vinay Dalvi |Posted 4 hours Three flats, a shop, two expensive SUVs, four bikes, Rs 16 lakh in cash — this is what the Thane Anti- Corruption Bureau found in Head Constable Prem Singh Rajput’s name, when they raided his house after arresting him for taking a bribe of Rs 50000 The Thane Anti-Corruption Bureau (ACB) may have as well been playing popular game show Kaun Banega Crorepati, after a raid on a constable’s house revealed that he had assets and cash running into crores of rupees well beyond the legal reach of a head constable. Prem Singh Rajput The rich haul came in the wake of the arrest of Senior Police Inspector Shahaji Jadhav and three constables under him Head constable Prem Singh Rajput, and constables Uday Kore and Suresh Patil all from Unit V of the Thane Crime Branch. Illustrations/Amit Bandre These cops had had been caught while taking a bribe of Rs 50,000 from the owner of a chemical factory in Wada. ACB said these policemen had allegedly found some men adulterating phenyl with kerosene, and had arrested two workers from the factory, and had also taken possession of a four-wheeler owned by the factory owner. The cops demanded money from the owner to let the workers and the car go, after which the owner approached the ACB. “In order to free them, these cops had struck a deal of R2 lakh with the owner, of which Rs 50,000 was the first instalment,” said a Thane ACB official. Under the guidance of Director General of ACB Praveen Dixit, the four cops were arrested on Wednesday after having been caught red-handed. Millionaire copIn course of investigations, the ACB began conducting searches in their houses. While they didn’t find anything in the houses of Kore and Patil, the ACB were in for a big shock when they landed at Rajput’s flat in Shivai Nagar in Thane. Rajput had three flats, a shop, two expensive cars, and four bikes in his and his family members’ names. They also found Rs 16 lakh in cash. “We found Rs 16,36,500 cash at his residence. We also learnt that he was staying in a 650 sq ft flat in Shivai Nagar, which was in his name. He has a 672 sq ft flat in Panchpakhadi also in his name, and another 670 sq ft flat in Samarth Housing Society in Shivai Nagar, this one in his and his wife’s names. Apart from this, he owns a 250 sq ft shop in the same area,” said Dattatray Karale, superintendent of police, Thane ACB. The total worth of his property will definitely run into crores. It doesn’t end here. There is a Toyota Innova in his wife’s name, a Toyota Fortuner registered with his brother, Gopal Singh Rajput. In the list of two-wheelers is a TVS Scooty Pep in his wife’s name, a Hero Honda Splendor, Hero Passion Pro, and KTM Duke 200 registered with his sister, who stays with him. His son, though, uses the high-speed Duke worth Rs 1.85 lakh. Furthermore, there is a bank locker with Thane Bharat Co-operative Bank in Gandhinagar, Thane. “We are going to open the bank locker tomorrow after taking necessary permissions from the bank,” said Dixit. Police expect more riches to be revealed with the locker and are also convinced that Rajput, who is being questioned, will be unable to account for a legal source of his income to afford such assets.

The new, spiral building will come up at the south-end of the railway station, next to platform number one, where a pay-and-park bay currently stands. According to railway officials, the new building will accommodate more than 2,000 vehicles, which will go a long way in decongesting the western side of the railway station, where two-wheelers are currently parked. Thane station sees more than 3 lakh commuters daily. "Currently, there are a few railway offices at the proposed building site, and those will be shifted. Tenders for a ground-plus-one structure will be floated within a few days and the project is expected to be ready by December," divisional railway manager Mukesh Nigam said. The primary cost of project is estimated to be Rs 10 crore, the railway officials said. To streamline traffic in the vicinity of the station, the Thane Municipal Corporation (TMC) has created a station area transport improvement scheme (SATIS), and the railway has been building additional foot-over bridges to cater to the increasing commuter traffic.

Urdu Daily Editor Arrested in Thane for Reprinting Charlie Hebdo Cartoon By Neha Singh January 29, 2015 12:18 IST Share on linkedin An Urdu newspaper editor was arrested by the Mumbra police in Thane on Wednesday for reprinting a cartoon of Prophet Muhammad that was originally printed in French satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo.   Charlie Hebdo Twitter Charlie Hebdo Twitter Shireen Dalvi of the daily Awadhnama was arrested on the basis of a complaint lodged against her by Nusrat Ali at the Mumbra police station 15 days ago, after which the police registered cases against Dalvi under various provisions of the Indian Penal Code. "We arrested the woman on Wednesday and she was produced in a Thane court and released on bail," Hindustan Times quoted a senior police officer from Mumbra police station as saying. The delay in arrest had created tension. When no action was taken days after registering the complaint, Ali and members of the Rashtriya Ulema Council submitted another complaint to the Mumbra police station four days ago. They threatened to stage a protest right in the vicinity of the police station if Dalvi was not arrested immediately.  Charlie Hebdo office was attacked on 7 January 2015 by two masked gunmen who shot down two policemen and 10 journalists, including four famous cartoonists of the magazine and its editor Stéphane "Charb" Charbonnier. The attack led to protests in Paris and several other parts of the world while religious unrest was witnessed in many other parts of the world.  People in Pakistan staged anti-Charlie Hebdo protests outside the French consulate in Karachi on 16 January, leaving several injured, including a photographer of Agence France-Presse.

Further probe is on.

Caller sends Thane cops on SIMI hunt, turns out to be false alarm By Sailee Dhayalkar |Posted 4 hours A man had called Thane police saying the accused who escaped Khandwa Jail were seen at Mulund station where they took a Badlapur train and were headed for Kalyan On Saturday around 10.45 pm, a man called Thane police control room, saying he had seen five Students Islamic Movement of India (SIMI) members, who had escaped from  Khandwa jail in Madhya Pradesh on October 1, 2013. A poster by Thane police about the five men, (from left) Sheikh Mohammed, Amjad Khan, Aslam Mohammed, Mohammed Aizazuddin and Zakir Hussain. They are members of Students Islamic Movement of India (SIMI) involved in three major robberies. They also planted a bomb on a Chennai train and are accused of carrying out a blast in Bijnor.The man claimed that he saw them at Mulund station and they took a Badlapur local and going towards Kalyan. After the call, Thane Railway police went in search of the five men.They checked Thane, Dombivli and Kalyan stations. They also checked the Badlapur local in which the men allegedly entered. But the accused were not found.According to a source, “As they were not seen, it was declared to be a case of mistaken identity. Photos of all the five are displayed at stations saying if they are seen anywhere, police should be informed. The informer’s identity will be kept under wraps. We suspect that after seeing this poster, the man called us.”Vijay Kamble, Thane police commissioner said, “We get these kind of calls on a daily basis but it is our duty to investigate them. Regarding this case, we have checked the CCTV footage but no such people were seen.”

Thane: 14-year-old girl addicted to drugs kills herself Sunday, 25 January 2015 - 6:15am IST Updated: Sunday, 25 January 2015 - 7:59am IST | Agency: dna Arvind Walmiki 20Shares Facebook Twitter Google+ Reddit Comments On Thursday (Jan 22), between 12 and 1.30pm, a 14-year-old, class eight girl, who had been on drugs for the past two months, committed suicide at her residence in Vartak Nagar, Thane. On Thursday (Jan 22), between 12 and 1.30pm, a 14-year-old, class eight girl, who had been on drugs for the past two months, committed suicide at her residence in Vartak Nagar, Thane by hanging herself from the ceiling with a bed sheet. The girl's parents have confirmed she was under the influence of drugs, but refused to believe she was suicidal. The victim was alone in the house. She must have climbed onto the fridge in the kitchen, tied the bed sheet to the ceiling fan and hanged herself. Around 2pm, neighbors knocked on the door and when there was no response, they broke open the front door. Her elder sister who went into the room found her hanging from the ceiling. Though she was brought down and rushed to Thane civil hospital, she was declared 'dead on admission'. According to the victim's mother who had gone out for some work, the girl had not gone to school. Her other daughters were in school and her husband was at work. "Around 2pm I got a call from a neighbor who told me that my daughter was unconscious, and I rushed to the civil hospital, but was told she had died. I was shocked. When I checked with her friends, they said they weren't aware she had some problem," the mother said. She added: "My girl hated being called her girl's name. She would quarrel when anyone in the family did that. She was our favourite and we used to treat her like a boy. She had many male friends. I have doubts about a few, as I believe they are drug addicts. In the past two weeks she had stopped sharing things with us. When I asked the reason, she did not respond. I have scolded her for being in boys' company, but she used to hate being with girls. We will now see if we can donate her organs." The deceased's younger sister said: "I want to punish those who diverted my sister's mind. In the last one week, whenever she was alone in the house, she used to scratch her face and on and off the lights and fans, and keep the door closed. And, she had started behaving like a girl – wash clothes and utensil, etc. She added: "I want to stop the drug problem in our area. My sister used to go to the jungle area in Nulpada along with her friends everyday around 9.30pm and return after 10pm. There were dark circles under her eyes; she used to skip meals and had stopped sleeping at night. When she went to school, she used to carry her frock in her bag and used to wear it when she left school. Once I even went to the spot and asked my sister not to take drugs and also scolded her friends, but she slapped me and asked me to go home." According to a source in the police, the girl was sniffing whitener and one day her father scolded her. She was angry and the next day she committed suicide. Investigation officer Sandip Patil of Vartak Nagar station said: "We have registered an ADR (accidental death) case. The girl's parents have said they believed her friends had provoked her into committing suicide. We are investigating." 20Shares Facebook Twitter Google+ Reddit Comments committing suicidedeathdrug addictsDrugssuicide case

All five cops belonged to the Special Branch (Kalyan), the state’s intelligence gathering unit and it has been learnt that they had bunked the entire day at work, attending a wedding in the first half of the day and then partying in the evening. Onlookers gather as a rescue team attempts to find the body of head constable Bhaskar Harad from Panzar talao The incident happened around 5 pm, while the group was in Shahapur. Ravindra Deshmukh, Rajaram Kesarakar, Jaywant Gawde, Ravindra Pawar accompanied head constable Bhaskar Harad, who was supposed to meet a prospective groom for his daughter there. However, as they had reached early, they decided to party and drink alcohol. In that inebriated state, Harad decided to take a dip in a nearby lake, Panzar talao. When Harad did not emerge from the water, his colleagues got worried. “The five had gone for some personal work, after which one of them drowned. Harad entered the water but never returned, and when the other constables realised that the water was deep, they immediately informed the police and fire brigade,” said M V Sakale, police inspector of Shahapur police station. The police are still trying to fish Harad’s body from the lake, and will initiate an enquiry against the errant constables. If the investigations confirm that they indeed missed work and were drinking on duty, action would be taken against them, said the police.

The boy fell and died in Fortis hospital in Kalyan. They were driving rashly after they saw the constable,” said Arvind Kumar Shukla, principal of the secondary section of Jaslok High School.

Thane rural cops bust sex racket in spaThe author has posted comments on this articleB B Nayak, TNN | Jan 24, 2015, 02.11AM ISTShare on LinkedinPage 1 of 4THANE: The Anti-Human Trafficking wing of the Thane rural police busted a high profile sex racket that was running as a massage parlour in Mira Road on Thursday. While three women have been rescued by the team, the manager of the parlour has been arrested. Acting on a tip off about flesh trade activities being carried out at a 'massage parlour' in Rasaaz Multiplex and Shopping Mall in Mira Road, the cops, under the instructions of senior police inspector Dhanaji Kshirsagar, sent a decoy customer to ascertain the activities late on Thursday. "Soon after the decoy gave a go-ahead, our team swooped down on Aqua Asia Kerala Ayurvedic Spa and caught the manager, Sanjay Bodhi Yadav. We rescued women aged between 22 and 25 years," said Kshirsagar. The rescued women have been sent to the rehabilitation centre.

TMT has said that the passenger response was lukewarm and the route was not financially viable. Devidas Tekale, transport manager, TMT, said, “While there were passengers travelling from Thane to Dadar, the bus would be empty while returning. This was causing a loss to TMT.” The number of passengers using AC buses on this route in the afternoons was almost nil. TMT will continue to ply AC Volvo buses on the Thane-Borivali route since there is a good response from passengers. AC buses on the Thane-Dadar route will be discontinued shortly. Mrunali Pawar, 29, a resident of Thane, said that she prefers railway over the bus as it is less time-consuming. She added, “When you take the train, you know how much time your travel will take. However, if you take a bus then you could get stuck in traffic.

2015-01-239-year-old Thane girl bags second degree black bel
9-year-old Thane girl bags second degree black belt at karate examThe author has posted comments on this articleFreny Fernandes, TNN | Jan 24, 2015, 02.16AM ISTShare on LinkedinPage 1 of 4THANE: When it comes to sports, be it chess, tennis or karate, Thaneites have always proved their mettle. At the recently-held martial arts exam in Gujarat, Thane's Khushi Punj (9) won the second degree black belt. The exam was conducted by Japan Shotokan Karate-do Kanninjuku Organisation (JSKKO). An official from JSKKO, said, that with this win, Punj became the youngest second degree black belt female winner in the country. ''In 2013, Punj was the youngest female black belt holder in Maharashtra and second youngest in the country. She was also awarded the Thane Mayor award for her performance,'' the official said. The nine-year-old took up marital arts in order to build her stamina and improve her health. ''Khushi has been suffering from asthma since a very young age. We had enrolled her for karate so that the regular exercise would help boost her stamina. Her stamina has improved and her asthma is also under control,'' said Khushi's father Ankur Punj. While Khushi's stamina has improved, her love for the sport, too, has increased. ''She loves karate and is passionate about it. Her coach, too, encourages her,'' her father added. Shihan Paramjeet Singh, chief instructor and examiner of JSKKO, India, said, ''We are proud of Khushi. She took up karate when she was just three-and-a-half years. And she has already scaled huge heights. By the time she grows up, the sport will, hopefully, be considered in Olympics. If it does, then Khushi will surely win laurels for India.'' Khushi is also academically good. Her school provides her full support and encouragement. ''We encourage all our students to take up self defence. It is very necessary in today's time. Khushi has not only excelled in karate, but also set an example for others to follow suit,'' said principal of Holy Cross Convent, Louiza D'Souza.

The Thane Municipal Corporation's (TMC) fire department confirmed that a fire tender cannot attend to an emergency situation as it is not possible for them to enter the station through Satis from either side - B Cabin, ST stand or Shivaji Chowk. In case of an emergency, the fire engine will have to take the wrong side from the exit of the flyover at Talaopali signal, blocking movement of public buses. Civil experts said that Satis is built at such a low height that fire tenders cannot reach the station. A retired bridge expert said, "This was wrong planning and the TMC failed to rectify the initial fault of not foreseeing that fire tenders cannot enter the station due to the faulty construction plan. Now there is no way of taking a corrective action. The station area is also heavily encroached upon." Meanwhile, the fire department has declared that the standard safety norms have been violated at Satis. In the RTI reply, the fire officials mentioned that the fire engine cannot reach the station from any side as the B-Cabin, ST stand, post office and Shivaji Chowk access are encroached upon by vehicles.

Bombay HC junks PIL challenging bifurcation of Thane district Tuesday, 20 January 2015 - 9:34pm IST | Place: Mumbai | Agency: PTI 11Shares Facebook Twitter Google+ Reddit Comments The Bombay High Court today disposed of a public interest litigation (PIL) challenging Maharashtra government's decision to split neighbouring Thane district and carve out a new district with headquarters at Palghar. The Bombay High Court today disposed of a public interest litigation (PIL) challenging Maharashtra government's decision to split neighbouring Thane district and carve out a new district with headquarters at Palghar. The HC suggested that the petitioners can make a representation to the government regarding their prayer in the PIL of declaring a separate autonomous district for tribals. The PIL had demanded to "quash and set aside the said political decision of the government." A total of 33 persons, including CPI(M) MLA Raja Nathu Ozare (from Jawhar), NCP state unit secretary Rajaram Mukne, ex-MLA and MP from CPI(M) Lahanu Shidwa Kom, Vikramgadh BJP president Sudhakar Patil and Adiwasi Ekta Parishad president Kaluram Dodhade had filed the PIL against the creation of Palghar district which was carved out on August 1 last year. The PIL alleged that the decision to have new district headquarters at Palghar was a political one and taken by the "insensitive" government under pressure of administration only for the convenience of the administrative staff of the newly-created district and is in violation of the norms which are required to be followed for the same. "The decision to have proposed headquarters at Palghar was discriminatory and violative of fundamental rights guaranteed under Articles 14 and 19 of the Constitution for tribal and backward class people of the region. Their (government's) decision is arbitrary, malafide, contrary to public opinion and views of all the five panchayat samitis, MLAs and MPs of area," the PIL alleged. Having the district headquarters at Palghar, more than 150-200 kms away from most of the predominantly tribal areas under it, is the negation of the right to live and right to have a dignified life as guaranteed by Article 21 of the Constitution, the PIL contended. "The decision is also violative of the directive principles of the state policy and the object of Articles 243 to 243(o) of the Constitution are thereby defeated. The decision to have headquarters at Palghar is violative of constitutional rights of tribal and backward class people and the other poor people of the region," the petition had argued.   11Shares Facebook Twitter Google+ Reddit Comments

Call for car bomb attack during Obama visit, NIA blames Thane ‘IS man’ Comments Email Print PM Narendra Modi with US President Barack Obama. (Source: Reuters photo) Written by Sagnik Chowdhury | New Delhi | Posted: January 21, 2015 3:41 am | Updated: January 21, 2015 3:42 am Days ahead of Barack Obama’s visit to India, one of the youths from Thane who went to Iraq to join the Islamic State (IS) has reportedly called for a car bomb attack targeting the US President. Late on Monday night, a tweet from a pro-IS Twitter handle stated, “Heard that enemy of Allah, Obama is coming to India soon. And Indian Muslims are good in chemicals, so a chemical car bomb will be a good idea.” NIA sources confirmed to The Indian Express that the agency suspects the Twitter handle is being operated by one of the youths from Thane who went to Iraq. “A close watch is being kept on the Twitter handle as it is believed to be operated by one of the youths from Thane who joined the IS. The latest tweet on the Obama visit has been taken note of and appropriate action will be taken. The US authorities will be approached for details of the handle under an emergency disclosure request,” said a source. When contacted, Delhi Police Commissioner D S Bassi said, “All necessary precautions are being taken ahead of the US President’s visit.” Four youths — civil engineering student Areeb Majeed, Saheem Tanki, Amaan Tandel and Fahad Shaikh — left their homes in Thane and went to Iraq to join the IS last year. Majeed returned to India nearly two months ago, after reportedly sustaining combat injuries near Mosul, and is now in the NIA’s custody. He was earlier reported to have been killed in fighting. On Saturday night, images surfaced online purporting to show Tanki shortly before he reportedly launched a “suicide bombing” in the northeastern Syrian city of al-Hasaka earlier this month. The images were released on multiple platforms linked to the IS. Tanki’s family members had told the NIA earlier this month that they had received a phone call from an unknown Iraqi number informing them of his death. The family has not communicated with Tanki for over two months, police sources said. NIA sources, however, said they had not yet arrived at any conclusions about Tanki’s whereabouts or status.

2015-01-20HC disposes of PIL challenging bifurcation of Than
HC disposes of PIL challenging bifurcation of Thane into two districts Comments Email Print By: Express News Service | Mumbai | Posted: January 21, 2015 2:01 am A public interest litigation (PIL) opposing the state government’s decision to bifurcate Thane district and create a new district, with its headquarters at Palghar, was disposed of by the Bombay High Court Tuesday. The PIL, filed by local political leaders and social activists, had sought “quashing and setting aside the said political decision of the government”. Thirty-five people, including CPI(M) MLA Raja Nathu Ozare (from Jawhar), NCP state unit secretary Rajaram Mukne, ex-MLA and MP from CPI(M) Lahanu Shidwa Kom, Vikramgadh BJP president Sudhakar Patil and Adiwasi Ekta Parishad president Kaluram Dodhade, had filed the PIL against the creation of the new district, which was done last year. The petitioners were represented by V A Gangal. Chief Justice Mohit Shah and Justice B P Colabawala, however, allowed the petitioners to make a representation to the government with regards to not moving the additional collector’s post from Jawhar taluka to Palghar, so that tribals benefiting from government schemes are not affected by this move. The court also asked the state government to consider the representation made in the petition. The post of additional collector was created according to a Government Resolution issued in 1993, but after the bifurcation, while the post remained, the officers were moved to Palghar. “The decision to have proposed headquarters at Palghar is discriminatory and violative of fundamental rights, guaranteed under Articles 14 and 19 of the Constitution for tribal and backward class people of the region. Having a headquarter of a district more than 150-200 km from most of the predominantly tribal areas of the proposed district Palghar is a negation of the right to live and right to have a dignified life as guaranteed by Article 21 of the Constitution of India,” the PIL had alleged. On August 1, 2014, the state government announced the formation of the 36th district of Maharashtra (Palghar district), which was carved out of the Thane district. Meanwhile, the government defended its stand by stating that more land was available for building staff quarters and other infrastructure in Palghar. Comments

Builder shot dead in Thane Builder shot dead in Thane — By Agencies | Jan 19, 2015 04:32 pm Thane: A builder was shot dead in Diva township of Thane this morning, police said. Builder Sandeep Patil (35) was walking on a road on his way to the office in Diva at around 10 AM when he was apprehended by three men who shot him at point-blank range, killing him on the spot, Mumbra police station inspector S M Mundhe said. The assailants also attacked him with swords, he said. The motive behind the killing was not immediately known, but it was suspected to be the fallout of a property dispute, he said.

2015-01-19The 24th Annual New York Jewish Film Festival Retu
The 24th Annual New York Jewish Film Festival Returns Posted: 01/19/2015 3:43 pm EST Updated: 01/19/2015 3:59 pm EST Share Tweet Email Comment tumblr stumble reddit Manhattan is an island awash in film festivals. If there are new movies with a thematic niche, chances are there's a film festival with a clever lineup of screenings -- and film junkies lining up outside -- somewhere the city.Over the next few weeks one of the better film festivals will be premiering at Lincoln Center with its rich blend of cinematic excellence and cultural relevance. The 24th Annual New York Jewish Film Festival, co-produced by the Film Society of Lincoln Center and the Jewish Museum, runs from January 14-29, 2015 with 47 features and short films from 11 countries. Nearly half the screenings are either world, United States or New York premiers, culminating in the closing night's selection, Maxime Giroux's, Felix and Maira, a forbidden romance set in Montreal between a married Orthodox Jewish woman and a middle-aged atheist.In addition to its showcase of films, this year's festival also includes a few offerings "off the screen," such as a presentation by the artist Keren Cytter, looping trailers from film noirs and an exhibit of posters from antiwar movies. The Jewish Film Festival nimbly shows off its toprocks and head spins with a special midnight screening of the 1980s break-dancing hit, Breakin' -- inspired by a documentary about the Israeli cousins who became B-movie kings, Menachem Golan and Yoram Globus, The Go-Go Boys, who made movie stars out of Chuck Norris and Jean-Claude Van Damme. The recent death of director Mike Nichols (and Robin Williams) may have inspired a screening of Nichols' 1996 comedy, Birdcage. And there will be a panel discussion following the world premier of the documentary The Zionist Idea (disclosure, I was a consultant on the film), co-directed by Joseph Dorman and Oren Rudavsky.What the Jewish Film Festival demonstrates each year is the rich diversity and worldwide storytelling possibilities of the Jewish experience--whether it is grounded in the old world of the Diaspora or in modern day Europe and Israel; and whether it involves the destruction and displacement of the Holocaust or the way in which Jews perfected the American delicatessen or, for that matter, B-movies.Israel's entry for this year's Foreign Language Oscar (and it was also a Golden Globe nominee) will be screened. The film, Ronit and Shlomi Elkabetz's, Gett: The Trial of Viviane Amsalem, is adapted from a true story about an orthodox Jewish woman who spent five years engaged in legal warfare that rivaled The War of the Roses, trying to obtain a religiously-ordained divorce, which required the consent of her husband.Films dealing with the Holocaust and it aftermath always seem to make it into the lineup, and this year's entry is an excellent one: Director Michael Verhoeven's, Let's Go! Verhoeven, best known for The Nasty Girl (1990), returns to a familiar theme: postwar Germany and the moral burden it uncomfortably bears. Here he adapts Laura Waco's autobiographical novel about a daughter of Holocaust survivors who, after her father dies, reflects on why her parents decided to settle in Germany, the very scene of the crime.Another Holocaust-themed film is Amos Gital's Tsilli, adapted from Aharon Appelfeld's novel about a young Jewish woman hiding in the forests south of Czernowitz, her family lost forever, and how she seeks to find meaning after the war among the ruins and silent witnesses.Finally, Erik Greenberg Anjou's Deli Man, a documentary about Ziggy Gruber, a Texan and third-generation delicatessen man who operates Kenny and Ziggy's in Houston, one of America's finest Jewish delis. The film is a commentary on immigration, upward mobility, and food--three things Jews know something about. Larry King and Jerry Stiller are featured, and yes, they are funny.There's much more.

Monday, 19 January 2015 - 3:07pm IST | dna | Edited by: Disha Shetty Tweet If the proposed waterfront project over Thane creek gets a green signal, the commute time from Mumbai to Thane and the costs involved will be reduced by 50%.   File photo/dna The much talked about waterfront project over the Thane creek could soon be a reality with the central government is taking keen interest in it. This project, once completed, will not only reduce the travel time by 50%, but also bring down the cost of travelling and shipment of cargo by 40%. Till 1893, Thane creek was used to ferry passengers and cargo. The government now is keen to revive this safe and eco-friendly mode of transport. “If this happens, then the cost and time of travelling from Kalyan/Vasai to Thane/Mumbai will come down significantly,” says KD Lala, city engineer, TMC who along with Thane MP Rajan Vichare and Kalyan MP Shrikant Shinde made a presentation to Nitin Gadkari, union minister of road transport and highways, last month. The proposed project will make it possible for those living in Mira-Bhayander area to travel to Mumbai or Vashi via Thane creek. Since cargo will also be transported easily, this would reduce the entry of trucks into the city and decongest roads. “Trucks coming to Mumbai from Ahmedabad highway can be diverted to the Thane creek and cargo can be shipped accordingly,” he added. This would also keep roads free at night for repairs. Hurdles to the project The implementation needs a strong political will as there are multiple stakeholders, limited funding as well as environmental clearance that will be needed. The project is expected to take a year, once construction begins. - Naveeta Singh/dna Monday, 19 January 2015 - 3:07pm IST | dna | Edited by: Disha Shetty #Thane #Mumbai #Vasai #Kalyan #ProposedWaterfrontProject #RajanVichare #NitinGadkari #UnionTransportMinister X What's happening in your neighbourhood?

All the photographs were taken just ahead of the launch of a suicide bombing by him in the north-eastern Syrian city of al-Hasaka earlier this month.The images were released on Saturday late night at multiple social media platforms linked to the Islamic State.Islamic State supporters, in their online messages, have also recorded what they claim was Tanki’s last statement. The messages also contain Tanki’s last wish before his suicide mission -- ‘Tell my mother to come on correct creed so we can meet in jannah (paradise).’Islamic State supporters further claimed that no video was made of the operation in which Tanki is believed to be killed and that the decision of suicide bombing was made at his own request.Tanki’s family members had earlier told the National Investigation Agency (NIA) that they had received a phone call from an unknown Iraqi number informing them of his death.NIA, however, said that they are yet to arrive at any conclusions about Tanki’s whereabouts or status.The family has not communicated with Tanki for over two months.Reports have emerged that four Muslim boys identified as Aarif Majid, Fahad Shaikh, Amaan Tandel and Saheem Tanki, hailing from Kalyan district in Thane, on 25 May last year, left along with 40 others by an Etihad flight to Baghdad on a pilgrimage. On May 31st, they called for a private taxi which dropped them at Mosul. Then they went missing.Majid returned home to India nearly two months ago after sustaining combat injuries near Mosul in Iraq, and is now in the custody of the NIA. Related

2015-01-18Images surface online of 'Thane jihadist' before '
Images surface online of ‘Thane jihadist’ before ‘suicide bombing’ Comments Email Print Saheem Tanki’s family members had told the NIA earlier this month that they had received a phone call, from an unknown Iraqi number, informing them of his death. Written by Praveen Swami | New Delhi | Posted: January 19, 2015 2:56 am | Updated: January 19, 2015 3:01 am Images have surfaced online purporting to show Indian call centre employee-turned-Islamic State jihadist Saheem Tanki shortly before he reportedly launched a “suicide bombing” in the northeastern Syrian city of al-Hasaka earlier this month. The images were released on multiple platforms linked to Islamic State and appeared online late on Saturday night. Tanki’s family members had told the National Investigation Agency (NIA) earlier this month that they had received a phone call, from an unknown Iraqi number, informing them of his death. The family has not communicated with Tanki for over two months, police sources said. The photographs appear to resemble earlier images of Tanki but there is no means of corroborating their authenticity. NIA sources familiar with the case said they had not yet arrived at any conclusions about Tanki’s whereabouts or status. In their online messages, Islamic State supporters have also recorded what they claim was Tanki’s last testament: an attack on Indian theologians for teaching Islam as a faith of “no jihad, only sabr (patience)”. Teachings such as these, Tanki’s purported testimony states, “are making our youth chocolate boys”. The messages also contain Tanki’s last wish before his suicide mission: “Tell my mother to come on correct creed so we can meet in jannah (paradise; sic).” The reference may be to the resentment Tanki and the three Thane men who travelled with him to join the Islamic State last year—Amaan Tandel, Fahad Shaikh, Areeb Majeed—appeared to have felt for their families. The Indian Express had first reported on July 14, 2014 about their departure and a letter believed to have been written on their behalf and left behind by Majeed in which he decried their relatives for “sinning, smoking cigarettes, taking interest in watching TV, illegal sexual intercourse, living luxurious lives, intermingling of sexes, not praying, not growing beards”. Majeed returned home to India nearly two months ago after sustaining combat injuries near Mosul, in Iraq, and is now in the custody of the NIA. He had earlier been reported to have been killed in fighting. Islamic State supporters on Twitter have said that no video was made of the operation in which Tanki is said to have been killed. The decision, they claimed, was made at his own request. No date for the operation was provided, either. However, intense fighting has been underway in al-Hasakah for several months, with the anti-Islamic State western coalition bombing jihadist positions around the town — a key transit point for cadre and logistics making their way through the porous Turkish border to Syria. Fighting between Syrian government troops, Kurdish People’s Protection Force fighters and the Islamic State has also continued… Comments Single Page Format 1 2

Thane girl found murdered in Gujarat: Accused arrested Sunday, 18 January 2015 - 7:00am IST | Agency: dna Arvind Walmiki 2Shares Facebook Twitter Google+ Reddit Comments It has been confirmed that the 30-year-old woman found dead at Surendranagar area in Gujarat last month was Sangeeta Lal (name changed), who used to stay in Sawarkar Nagar in Vartak Nagar, Thane. It has been confirmed that the 30-year-old woman found dead at Surendranagar area in Gujarat last month was Sangeeta Lal (name changed), who used to stay in Sawarkar Nagar in Vartak Nagar, Thane. The body was found with its neck twisted and Surendranagar police registered a murder case under section 302 of Indian Penal Code. In mid-August last year, Vartak Nagar police registered woman-missing case under section 363 IPC after she had gone missing from the area. Vartak Nagar police have now arrested one Gulshan Rai (name changed), 35, from Gujarat as the accused in the case. He was produced in a Thane court which remanded him in police custody till Jan 19. A police official in Thane commissionerate said: "We had a complaint about the deceased having gone missing. After a few months we came to know the girl was in Gujarat with a man. When we reached the spot, the accused denied knowing the girl. After our officials came back, we came to know that the woman had been murdered. Once our informers gave us the required information, we went there and nabbed him." He added: "After we arrested and interrogated him, the accused told us that the girl was with his friend. When we went to his friend's place, he denied knowing her. Then we took the accused into custody and brought him to Thane." The accused revealed that the woman and he had been in a relationship and that they had run away to Gujarat. He said the woman had demanded Rs 50,000 from him. A heated argument ensued. The accused then told the woman that they would go to a temple the next day and get married. But the accused took the woman to some remote area and killed her, twisting her neck. She died on the spot and the accused threw her body into some bush and fled. Surendranagar police which found the body, lodged a murder case against unknown person. Vartak Nagar police will soon handover the accused to Surendranagar police. 2Shares Facebook Twitter Google+ Reddit Comments Gujaratmissing casemurder caseThane

2015-01-182000 Koparkhairane trees moved to Thane-Belapur st
2000 Koparkhairane trees moved to Thane-Belapur stretch By Ankoor Anvekar |Posted 2 hours NMMC has taken the step in order to widen the roads As part of the road-widening project in MIDC, Koparkhairane, the Navi Mumbai Municipal Corporation (NMMC) has transplanted over 2,000 trees on the Thane-Belapur stretch.  According to NMMC officials from the garden department, the cost of transplanting each tree ranges from R3,000 to R5,500 depending upon its size taking the total cost to R60 lakh. The transplanted trees Rishi Agarwal , a social and environmental activist, however, points out, that planting a new sapling, which costs around R1,000 each, would have been a cheaper and more effective alternative. “The process of transplanting a tree is a waste of resources as the success rate is very poor. It obstructs their growth and is a costly affair compared to planting new saplings. A new plant would grow faster and would also save tax payer’s money,” says Agarwal. Defending NMMC’s stance, Chandrakant Tayade, administrative officer of NMMC garden department, claimed that transplanting of trees does not harm their growth. “Earlier, we have carried out similar processes successfully at the open space of Koparkhairane sewage treatment plant. We have planted the trees at a distance of three metres from each other and have almost finished the transplanting process,” he adds. NMMC officials further claimed that they conduct a medication process on the trees 10-15 days before and after the uprooting process to reduce loss during transplanting Meanwhile, Agarwal pointed out that the ideal distance between two trees should not be less than 30 metres. The season, too, is not suitable, points Agarwal. “The civic body will have to invest more resources as this is not the right time to transplant trees. Monsoon is the ideal time for replanting trees. With the summer approaching, more water will be required to grow these trees,” he stressed.

Garbage agony piles on streets of old Thane cityThe author has posted comments on this articleNishikant Karlikar, TNN | Jan 17, 2015, 02.48PM ISTShare on LinkedinPage 1 of 4 THANE: Old timers, here, recollect how the city streets used to be washed with water often to ensure cleanliness and that indiscriminate littering on the roads was a complete anathema. Today, as one marches out on either side of the Thane station area, they are greeted with discarded plastic bags, crushed bottles and pieces of soiled newspaper that lie scattered all over the streets. The absence of garbage bins is all evident. The streets in the old city areas of Naupada, Kopri and Charai have now metamorphosed into illegal dumping black spots. Amidst the cluster of residential homes, markets, schools, hospitals and eating joints, the old city boroughs appear to have been neglected by the civic administration. On the west side of the station, almost all shop owners and hawkers have kept their personal plastic bins to make sure that garbage is thrown at the right place. Hawkers alleged that they are fined by the civic officials if they see garbage strewn around. However, for pedestrians, the absence of dustbins is one compelling reason to dump garbage on the roads. Vishal Kharpude, a Dada Patilwadi resident, said, "Sweepers often clean the roads early in the morning and we residents have to collect the filth and dump it in the garbage van that arrives at a specific time of the day. But once the van leaves, within minutes the place is littered, as there are no dedicated garbage bins." The scenario is no different on the east side as barring three garbage bins outside Gaondevi temple not even a single bin is spotted within a one-and-half kilometre stretch. It's the same at Thane station near the entry and exit points. An eatery owner at the east side of the station said though it's been years, the civic body has still not provided them with bins. ''To avoid the filth spreading, we sweep our surroundings on our own," he said. On the west, only three garbage bins were spotted near B-Cabin Road and those, too, were overflowing. Besides this, not a single bin was spotted on the entire stretch of Ram Maruti Road, Gokhale Road, Hari Niwas Circle or near the TMC headquarters towards Charai. At Aradhana chowk, garbage was seen piled up, leading to a stench. Even the wholesale vegetable market at Jambhli Naka was filthy. Filth was scattered even on a road leading to the Asthavinayak chowk from Thane station. Papers, plastic and other residue were strewn all over lying unattended on the road near the Borivali bus stop. Ahead of the chowk on a road leading towards K C Engineering College, heaps of garbage was spotted on an open plot. The college students alleged that the garbage is left unattended most of the time which again raised a stink on their pathway. The plush officer's residential colony at Bara-Bangla in Thane east, too, has only one trash can. Interestingly, at the entrance of the bungalow of A B Gaikwad, the superintendent engineer of Public Works Department, a culvert is filled with papers, dry leaves, vegetable residue, etc. A person sweeping in the garden told TOI that, as there is no bin and they have to gather the filth in plastic sheets, it is left on the other side of the road for the garbage vans to pick it up. A little ahead of the conservator of forest office, the whole road is found partially clean. However, the tree fencing is used by the people to dump garbage. At the corner of this road, garbage is scattered outside a public toilet near Shanti Nagar and is left unattended. However, only three green bins were spotted at the Kopri circle besides the bus-stops in which one was broken on the side of Bara-Bangla.

Highlighting the need for a mechanism for integrated parking lots for Mumbai and Thane, chief minister Devendra Fadnavis on Wednesday asked the municipal corporations of both these cities to explore options. For instance, he suggested creating parking lots at open spaces without hampering the prevailing policy on open spaces. Fadnavis also reviewed traffic-related issues in Mumbai and Thane during a meeting with the officials. Minister of state Dr Ranjit Patil, additional chief secretary for transports Gautam Chatterji, BMC commissioner Sitaram Kunte, MMRDA commissioner UPS Madan, secretary to the home department Vinit Agrawal, BEST general manager Jagdish Patil, transport commissioner Mahesh Zagade, Thane police chief Vijay Kamble and Mumbai joint police chief Dr BK Upadhyay attended the meeting. Former cricketer Sanjay Manjrekar was the special invitee. Expressing the need to harness the state-of-the-art technologies for traffic management, Fadnavis said the CCTV network will be installed in Mumbai. According to him, it could be harnessed for better traffic management. The CM informed that special cameras would be installed at important points in Mumbai so that signal jumping, parking the vehicle ahead of stop line and over-speeding can be monitored and offenders punished. Fadnavis expressed the need for creating awareness about observing traffic rules in addition to installing state-of-the-art technology. He informed that the state government would try to provide infrastructure along with strengthening the public transport system. Chatterji demanded that parking for taxis and autos should be considered in the parking policy of the corporation. A presentation by BMC, which included area traffic control system, master plan for the Mumbai roads, coastal road project, Goregaon-Mulund Link Road, establishing truck terminal, comprehensive mobility plan, was shown during the meeting. Dr Upadhyay informed that Mumbai – which had 6.28 vehicles in 1991 – has 24.75 lakh vehicles as per records on September 2014. He said in addition to vehicles registered in Mumbai, there are 1.5 lakh vehicles which enter Greater Mumbai on daily basis.

Thane lawyer receives lewd messages from West Bengal Friday, 16 January 2015 - 7:13am IST Updated: Friday, 16 January 2015 - 7:15am IST | Place: Thane (Maharashtra) | Agency: dna Arvind Walmiki 4Shares Facebook Twitter Google+ Reddit Comments A 39-year-old woman, lawyer by profession, from Thane has been receiving lewd messages from the past few months. Representational Image dna Research & Archives A 39-year-old woman, lawyer by profession, from Thane has been receiving lewd messages from the past few months. However, the victim had lodged a complaint with the Thane cyber cell department, from where, the case was transferred to Thane Nagar police station for further investigation. No one is arrested in the case as of now, as the phone number of the accused is switched off but traced at West Bengal. The police has sent a letter to get the call detail record (CDR) for both the numbers. The victim has not identified the accused yet. A case has been registered under section 509 (word, gesture or act intended to insult the modesty of a woman) and section 66 A of the IT Act of the IPC. D Boreste, senior police inspector said, "We have registered a case and the victim is an advocate. The victim had first approached the cyber cell and after which, it was transferred to us. We will go through the call details but no arrest has been made yet." Another police officer said, "The accused had two numbers registered against his name. We are going through the details and it is suspected that the number belongs to West Bengal. The accused started to send messages in the month of September." 4Shares Facebook Twitter Google+ Reddit Comments lawyerSexual harassmentCrimes against womenSection 66(A)Social MediaIndian Penal Code (IPC)

Will work on Thane Municipal Corporation's financial policy says Sanjeev Jaiswal Friday, 16 January 2015 - 5:49am IST | Place: Thane | Agency: dna Padmaja Sinha 5Shares Facebook Twitter Google+ Reddit Comments Sanjeev Jaiswal took over as the Thane Municipal Corporation (TMC) chief at a time when the corporation has been facing huge financial crisis. But it seems that he has some plan in place with which he aims at bringing in some cash for cash-strapped corporation. This will also ensure regular payment to all the employees. Sanjeev Jaiswal took over as the Thane Municipal Corporation (TMC) chief at a time when the corporation has been facing huge financial crisis. But it seems that he has some plan in place with which he aims at bringing in some cash for cash-strapped corporation. This will also ensure regular payment to all the employees. Jaiswal has launched a new method for a complete makeover which includes quick approvals for stranded projects and maintaining pothole-free roads. Last year, Rs700 crore was spent towards maintaining roads in Thane, Kalwa and Mumbra, but the situation still remains the same. Jaiswal said, "Deferred payment for road contractors does not work in this situation and there would be some reworked required." Under the deferred payment plan, TMC would not make any payment to the contractor and would not be charged interest for the first six months after the work was awarded. But once the time limit was over, a staggered payment would be made at a higher interest rate until the project was completed. In the present situation, with less money in its coffers, this system is not feasible. Jaiswal added, "Though roads need to be undertaken, the amount of interest paid to the contractor needs to be reworked. The economic recovery for last year has not been good with many pending taxes, so we need to careful about every penny we spend." Jaiswal said, "I cannot increase the financial burden on corporation's economy and this would be my priority. New loans with new policy should be designed properly or methods of removing deferred payment would be initiated." 5Shares Facebook Twitter Google+ Reddit Comments MumbraKalwaThaneThane Municipal Corporation (TMC)

Focus on improving infrastructure than awareness drives say Thane activists Friday, 16 January 2015 - 7:52am IST | Place: Thane | Agency: dna 1Shares Facebook Twitter Google+ Reddit Comments The traffic and police department organise various awareness programmes throughout the year, residents and activists are of the opinion that focus should be on improving city's infrastructure. The traffic and police department organise various awareness programmes throughout the year, residents and activists are of the opinion that focus should be on improving city's infrastructure. Highlighting the various improvements, activist Nilesh Ambekar shared, "The traffic department should see that defunct signals are removed and those which are functional should be operative 24X7. The height of the signals should be visible enough for all and the speed breakers and lanes should be demarcated properly so that driving at night becomes easy." Ambekar said though much has been done, however, there are many things that still needs attention. "In recent times, more traffic signals and police chowkis are required for better management because population has increased manifold. The services also needs to be improved along with the awareness programmes," Ambedkar said. People demand that monthly review of the system should be done and whatever has become obsolete should be removed. The commuters opine that the officials should invite suggestions and implement the changes. Kalpesh Hadkar, a resident, shared, "During the road safety week, we are asked to follow traffic rules and cops say we can approach them, but zebra crossing and traffic signals are missing at many places and when we complain we are made to run from pillar to post." Hadkar added that though the police say they are approachable, the fact remains that at times it's difficult to get even a case registered. Activist Rajeev Datta said, "Pople should cooperate with the police and traffic department. Being a responsible citizen, we have the right to criticize and complain, but at the same time, we should appreciate any good initiative." Commenting on improving the services, Rashmi Karandikar, DCP (traffic) said they have taken an initiative for safe ride within the city and will gradually focus on improving other aspects too. "We have listed the crowded areas and have reviewed the changes to be made at certain signals. We are trying to improve the situation and have asked the cops to be more friendly. We want people to trust us," Karandikar added. When asked problems that residents face while registering complaints, the officla said if anybody denies to register a case, then disciplinary action is taken, followed by a complain against the said official. 1Shares Facebook Twitter Google+ Reddit Comments

Thane youth films sex video with hidden spycam, blackmails lover By Shirish Vaktania |Posted 4 hours Accused allegedly planted a spy cam in the bedroom and filmed survivor without her knowledge while they had sex; he threatened to make the video public if she didn't give him money The Kashimira police arrested a 26-year-old yesterday, after he allegedly filmed a sex video of his girlfriend and then used it to blackmail her for money. According to the police, the accused and two of his friends had planted a spy camera in the bedroom of a Mira Road flat, and then filmed a video of him and the survivor while they were having sex. Sanu Khan had promised the survivor he would marry her, and had even introduced her to his friends, with whose help he later blackmailed her The prime accused in the case, Sanu Khan (26) had met the survivor in October, when she had visited the aquarium store where he worked. She had gone there to buy a fish tank, and when she met Khan, the two struck up a friendship. Over time, the friendship turned into a love affair, and in the same month, Sanu took the survivor to the Grand Hotel in Bhayander, where they had sex. A few days later, the he then called her to friend’s flat at Mira Road. Unbeknownst to her, Sanu and his friends — Javed Khan (the flat’s owner) and Faiyaz Khan — had already planted a hidden camera in the room, which captured a video and photographs of the couple as they were engaged in sexual acts. Since the past month, Sanu and his friends had been threatening to post the video and pictures on the Internet, the survivor told the police. The trio blackmailed her into giving them R2.8 lakh. But when they began demanding another R30 lakh, she told her parents about it and a police complaint was lodged yesterday. The survivor also told the police that Sanu had promised to marry her and had introduced her to his friends, Javed and Faiyaz as well. The police apprehended Sanu at the Mira Road flat, but his friends are currently on the run. Sanu has been charged for rape and extortion under the Indian Penal Code, as well as under relevant sections of the IT Act.

For Thane police dept vehicles, pollution norms dont apply? Manoj Badgeri | TNN | Jan 14, 2015, 10.12 PM IST THANE: It seems the proverb 'example is better than precept' fits the bill perfectly for the Thane police department. The department that expects residents to observe rules has itself failed to comply by the norms. None of the 697 vehicles owned by the department has got their pollution levels checked. Replying to a query filed by RTI activist Suyash Pradhan, Thane police said they have no Pollution Under Control (PUC) certificates implying that none of its vehicle has undergone the mandatory test. In November 2014, Pradhan had made a query about the number of vehicles registered with the Thane police and if all of them undergo regular pollution checks. In response, the transport department of the Thane police said there are 697 vehicles of different makes registered with them and they didn't have any record of pollution checks done on the vehicles. Activist Pradhan said he has even written to Thane police commissioner Vijay Kamble about the issue, but to no avail. In another instance of flouting norms blatantly, activist Satyajit Shah from Thane said he has also regularly noticed policemen riding without helmets. "I have written to the police higher ups and even the chief minister about this violation," he said. A transport official said they will look into the issue. "Every vehicle has to carry the PUC certificate. Defaulters can be penalized Rs 1,000 as per section 190 of the Motor Vehicles Act," said Hemangi Patil, deputy regional transport official.

Thane set for tryst with kites, sweets & other traditional delights on Makar Sankranti Freny Fernandes | TNN | Jan 14, 2015, 10.20 PM IST THANE: Come Thursday, the bright, blue skies will be adorned with colourful kites. Shops across the city have already started selling manjas and kites of various shapes and sizes. But the festivities are incomplete without some good food and traditional sweets. Til gul laddoos, a simple but delicious mix of sesame seeds and jaggery, are prepared in most Maharashtrian households, which are later exchanged among family and friends. Earlier, kite flying was rampant only in Gujarat. But off late, the festival is celebrated with great gusto in the lake city as well. Ila Tanna, a resident of Kharker lane, misses her hometown in Gujarat, but she is trying to make up for it by preparing some traditional delicacies at home. ''I will be preparing til chikki and laddoos. What's unique is that we insert five rupee coins in the mixture. This is called gupt daan or secret gift. We also prepare a delicacy called khichda, which is made out of nine types of daals. Other than this, I also make the Gujarati special, undhyo,'' Tanna said. The multi-cultural diaspora of the lake city has turned Thane into one gastronomic centre during the festivities. The delicacies of Maharashtra are some what similar to its neighbouring Gujarat. ''We, too, prepare a mixed vegetable dish called bhogi bhaji. This dish is offered to the lord a day before Sankranti and the main ingredient of the dish is til,'' said Kameshwari Kulkarni, a Vartak Nagar resident. ''We also prepare til gul laddoos and til vadi. Some households also make gulachi poli, which is basically a roti stuffed with jaggery, til and gram flour and fried in pure ghee,'' she added. Bengalis celebrate Makar Sankranti with traditional sweets like paatishaapta (a kind of pancake stuffed with khoya, coconut and nolen gurer or date palm jaggery) and puli pitha, which is a sweet dumpling dipped in milk mixed with spices. Different states have their own traditions and delicacies for Sankranti. While its Makar Sankranti for those in the west and north, down south they celebrate Pongal on this day. ''A traditional dish like pongal, a rice and jaggery, dish is prepared as it is our New Year. We prepare all sweets on this day as we want to start the New Year on a sweet note,'' said Bharat Nadar. Some also join classes to learn til gul laddoos and other Sankrant delicacies. Priti Doke held a class for those who wanted to learn some goodies. ''I had a special class for women who wanted to learn the traditional method of making Sankranti sweets. I taught my class how to prepare til gul laddoos, gulachi polis, rewari, til pitha and other dishes,'' Doke said.

"We are sure of sweeping the upcoming ZP polls. I don't think either of our opponents (Congress and NCP) stands a chance against us. BJP will have an alliance with Shiv Sena. If it doesn't happen now, it is bound to happen later," BJP MLA Vishnu Savara, who represents Vikramgadh seat in neighbouring Palghar district, told reporters here. He said BJP has asked its local leaders to finalise intricacies of the proposed alliance. The polls for newly-created ZP in Palghar, and for Thane ZP will be held on January 28. Both ZPs will have 57 members each. Meanwhile, a BJP leader said on the condition of anonymity that Congress leader and former minister Rajendra Gavit is in talks with BJP to switch over ahead of polls. "(Rajendra) Gavit is in talks with our party as he seems to be dissatisfied with the Congress leadership. But the moot question is whether our party is ready to induct him," he said. Gavit had lost 2013 state Assembly elections from Palghar by a slender margin. Congress, which is still smarting under the double- whammy of defeat in Lok Sabha and Assembly elections, has lost many of its office-bearers to BJP.

2015-01-12This Sankranti, make your own kite & fly it too -
This Sankranti, make your own kite & fly it too Freny Fernandes | TNN | Jan 13, 2015, 02.49 AM IST THANE: In today's age, everyone craves to be different and wants to own unique things. Be it gadgets, pens or even kites, being a class apart is the new mantra for kids and youth, alike. While one may think making a kite may be too much of a hassle, 52-year-old Ashok Shah clears this notion. ''It just takes 15 minutes and all you need is 10 items and seven steps to prepare unique kites,'' said Shah, a resident of Dahanu. Be it 3-D, LED, neon, train or plane, all these kites can be easily made from the comfort of your home, he added. The artist and designer stumbled upon this idea in 1996 while designing a Spiderman kite for his son. ''My children were keen on having a kite that only they had. I searched every market in Mumbai, Surat and Ahmadabad, but in vain. My wife then suggested I try making them myself since I was good at art and had some basic knowledge of kite making," he said, who started Ashok Designer Kites (ADK). Shah, who used to make traditional Indian fighter kites as a child, never knew that his passion would turn into a profession some day. ''Many people started appreciating my work. I also started getting order for my unique designs. They used to just tell me what they wanted and I would make it for them. Designing a kite at home is much cheaper than buying it from a store,'' he added. Although the usual kites sold in the market are for Rs 10 to Rs 20, kids opt for cartoon characters and trendy designs which are not available in stores. And if they are, they will cost a lot of money, Shah said. Shah has been organizing workshops for almost a decade on kite making. On Monday, Shah had organized a workshop for a group of 20 physically challenged children at a well-known hotel in Powai. ''I thought the kids to make kites of various sizes, colours and shapes, which they flew later in the day,'' Shah said. ''Anyone can make a kite. The physically challenged kids had a blast while making their own kites. It a lot more fun to fly the kites made by you,'' he added. Shah has represented Maharashtra at the International Kite Festival in Gujarat that was held in 1996. He has also been invited to Daman, Punjab and other places across the country to celebrate Makar Sankranti and share his passion for kite making and kite flying. Speaking about his dream, Shah said, "I want to represent our country at International Kite Competitions held across the world and win laurels for India. I want to spread the joy of kite flying and kite making all over the world."

2015-01-10Cong-NCP To Tie Knot In Thane-Palghar ZP Polls? -
Cong-NCP To Tie Knot In Thane-Palghar ZP Polls? Cong-NCP To Tie Knot In Thane-Palghar ZP Polls? — By FPJ Political Bureau | Jan 10, 2015 12:13 am Mumbai : ith elections to four seats of Maharashtra Legislative Council and two Zilla Parishads later this month, the Congress and the Nationalist Congress Party appear to be planning to join hands again. The two parties ran the Democratic Front government together for 15 years – but broke off before the Legislative Assembly elections. The two ZPs going to polls are Thane and Palghar. Thirteen Panchayat Samitis (PSs) within the two districts are also going to polls. The PSs in Thane district are Bhiwandi, Shahpur, Kalyan, Ambernath and Murbad while the PSs in Palghar are Vasai, Talasari, Dahanu, Vikramgad, Jawahar, Mokhada, Wada and Palghar. It is to be mentioned here that last year the new district of Palghar was created after being carved out of Thane. Both Maharashtra Congress chief Manikrao Thakre and his NCP counterpart Sunil Tatkare have taken a stand that they have left it to the local bodies to take a final call on the issue and if they feel they can ally with like-minded parties. But, that appears to be a temporary stand and both the parties would eventually come together, political analysts are saying. Both the NCP and the Congress would be able to pose some challenge to the BJP-Shiv Sena combine only if they join hands, analysts say. The NCP had gained strength in the urban area of the districts in past few years while the Congress had been holding the rural part of the districts for a long. They would complement each other if they came together, analysts say. When the district was not bifurcated, the NCP-Congress and the Sena-BJP had a close finish in the ZP polls in 2012. The DF combine won 27 seats while the saffron allies bagged 26 in the 66-seat Thane ZP. The MNS won two seats, while the Vasai Jan Andolan Samiti and the CPM had three and four seats respectively. The NCP got the backing of the splinter groups –and assumed the dominant position. The elections are scheduled for January 28 and the last date of filing of nominations is January 13. As far as the MLC elections are concerned, the elections are to be held for four seats. Three MLCs – Prithviraj Chavan of the Congress and Vinod Tawde and Ashish Shelar of BJP won the elections to Maharashtra Legislative Assembly while Vinayak Mete was disqualified after he switched sides without resigning. The MLC polls are scheduled for January 30 and the last date of filing nominations is January 20. The electoral college comprises of 288-member Maharashtra Legislative Assembly, in which the BJP-Shiv Sena has a dominant position.

Sneha R Mirchandani, around 38 years of age, ended her life by hanging herself to the ceiling with a dupatta' at home, Kapurbawdi police station inspector Sushil Kadam said.

Shut Level Crossings Between Thane And Kalyan, Says CR Jan 08, 2015, 08:28 IST | Shashank Rao Authorities Are Pushing For The Closure, At Least In Peak Hours, Of Three Level Crossings Due To Which Train Schedules Go Haywire; Thane Traffic Cops, However, Say This Will Cause Huge Traffic Jams On The Road Close on the heels of the recent violence seen in Diva, the Central Railway (CR) authorities want the level crossings on the Thane-Kalyan stretch closed in order to reduce delays in train schedules.This, however, is set to throw traffic out of gear, since these gates are the only way to travel between east and west of the suburbs. The three level crossings one each at Thakurli, Diva and Kalwa open over 40 times a day, due to which trains running on the Main line of Central Railway run late, said a CR official on condition of anonymity. Whenever a level crossing opens it eats into 10 minutes of the trains running time each gate is opened for at least three minutes each time, for vehicles to cross from east to west and vice versa. There is another level crossing at Chunabhatti on the Harbour line, and the four gates delay 105 services on CR. CR officials said these level crossings should be shut at least during morning and evening peak hours - between 8 am and 11am, and from 6 pm to 9 pm respectively. However the Thane Traffic police are aghast at this possibility. There is no alternative route if these level crossings are closed. Even if they are shut during peak hours, traffic will pile up for kilometres together, and this will further anger the crowds, said an officer from Thane Traffic police. To make matters worse, construction of road over bridges (ROBs) at Kalwa and Thakurli is proceeding at snails pace. Indian Railways recently signed a Memorandum of Understanding with the Ministry of Road Transport for construction of ROBs and road under bridges. Key meeting today Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis and senior railway board officials, led by Union Railway Minister Suresh Prabhu, will meet today to discuss railway-state government disputes on various aspects. One of the foremost issues on the agenda is the closure, or at least temporary shutdown, of level crossings during peak hours. Apart from this, they will also discuss land acquisition for the upcoming Metro lines, construction of ROBs on the proposed Churchgate-Virar and CST-Panvel elevated fast corridors, and the much-anticipated Mumbai-Ahmedabad high-speed corridor.

NCP workers, led by corporator Amit Saraiya, went to the Thane mayor’s office in the afternoon yesterday, and left him a beer crate as a gift. Pic/Sameer Markande The party men were miffed that the mayor had adjourned a general body meeting last week in order to meet representatives of the city’s restaurant and bar association, and left a symbolic ‘gift’ for him. The demonstration was led by NCP corporator Amit Saraiya, who, along with his party workers, clamoured outside the mayor’s office in Thane yesterday. According to the corporator, the mayor had called a general body meeting of legislators from the Thane Municipal Corporation on December 28. Halfway through the meeting, Sanjay More, who is from the Shiv Sena, allegedly wrapped it up to meet representatives of the Restaurant and Bar Association from the city. Saraiya said, “On December 28, we had a general body meeting, but our mayor seemed to be least interested in addressing issues related to the public. That is why he adjourned the meeting in a hurry to meet the people from the restaurant and bar association. There were 50 subjects on our agenda for discussion, but the mayor passed all those matters in a hurry. As a mark of protest, I, along with my other party workers, gave the mayor a box of beer cans as a gift.” Though the mayor was not in his office in the afternoon when the group had gone there, they left him their ‘present’. One of the workers even cracked open a can on the spot. In a press conference yesterday, NCP’s MLA from Kalwa, Jitendra Awhad also condemned the way in which the mayor had postponed the meeting.

I have also lodged a complaint with the Naupada police station.” Police sources said a case has been registered against 30 people, including Saraiya, under Sections 353, 143 and 147 of the IPC, along with other relevant charges.

Thane familys bag stolen in Duranto train TNN | Jan 5, 2015, 11.23 PM IST MUMBAI: A Thane family's handbag was stolen near Igatpuri station while they were travelling by the Allahabad-LTT Duranto on Sunday. The Kurla GRP has registered a case of theft after the family alighted at LTT. The complainant, Akhilesh Pandey, was returning from his hometown in UP with his wife, son and two relatives. "Duranto is a non-stop train so we thought we could relax without anyone disturbing us. Around noon on Sunday, we went off to sleep," said Pandey, a chartered accountant. The train was running late and had an unscheduled halt at Igatpuri station when several vendors got in to sell their wares. "I had last spotted the handbag when I fished out my mobilephone power bank from it. We had our lunch. Later, when I went to put the power bank back into the bag, it had disappeared. It contained a 4 tola gold mangalsutra, a silver glass, my wallet with Rs 7,000 in cash, a driving licence, a cellphone, debit cards, credit cards and PAN cards," added Pandey. The family suspects the vendors who got into their coach may have been involved with the theft. Kurla GRP would transfer the case to a railway police station near Igatpuri for further investigations.

Vasudev Bhoir stated that several illegal structures had come up in the village especially between 1999 and 2005. The PIL urged for the demolition of these illegal buildings. He also stated that authorities keep shifting onus and responsibility to take down these illegal structures and therefore heprays for the general directions of the court. No action has been taken by any authorities with regard to the illegal structures in this area. The MMRDA, village gram panchayat and zilla should meet and work out an appropriate action plan in this matter against illegal structures in Dawadi in four weeks., said the Judges. Advocate Kiran Bagalia representing MMRDA stated that MMRDA has been appointed by the state only for special planning after 2005 and that they dont have power of demolition under the Maharashtra Regional Town Planning Act (MRTP), 1966. Bagalia further added, MMRDA will step in to demolish once they are given sufficient machinery and police protection to do so. The court has asked that the petition be amended so that the zilla parishad can be made a respondent to the PIL.

Lower back pain reported by 88% of nurses in Mumbai and Thane: Study TNN | Jan 6, 2015, 04.41 AM IST MUMBAI: In a rare study conducted on the health status of nurses, it has been found that an overwhelming majority of them suffer from musculoskeletal problems. An interview-based survey of 244 nurses from 21 nursing homes in the city and Thane revealed that 88.7% of them suffered from lower back pain of varying degree. The study, which included a BMC-run nursing home too, showed how little thought was being spared to ensure nurses do not sustain injuries while supporting or lifting a patient. "While lifting a patient, they would often stand in non-linear positions, which invariably caused overloading of the spine. Barring two nursing homes in Thane, none of the rest had patient lifting devices. Even for the two nursing homes, the devices were kept in store rooms," said principal investigator and ergonomist Roopa Rao from Nirmala Niketan College of Home Science. She added that at least 44% of them suffered from lower back pain thrice a week. Around 41% also said they suffered from pain in the right wrist. Rao said during the course of study she found out how nurses had no resting time or space though their work schedules often exceedednine hours. "At least 9% said that empty beds became their pantries, while another 17% said they rested on the passage ways," she said. "The main motivators are salary and benefits to support their homes. They however have limited access to claims and compensation for occupational hazards," she said.

A pair of 'robotic sandals', capable of generating high voltage at just few taps, by young students at CTC has been chosen for presentation at the Indian Science Congress (ISC) under 'Women Empowerment through information computer technology' hosted by the Mumbai University. The project will be showcased before an audience of more than 15,000 scientists at the varsity's Kalina campus by CTC mentor Purshotam Pachpande and Dr Shraddha Ingle, visiting scientist to the Bhabha Atomic Research Center, on behalf of the students.

It has received overwhelming response from everyone and was a big inspiration for our kids who made many gadgets after that." The not-so-ordinary footwear has a 'black box' which records all incidents at a particular spot. If an user taps her foot two to three times, the electric circuit get activated and generates high current. It can then be used as a powerful weapon against an attacker.

2015-01-04Thane MP failed to improve rail services: resident
Thane MP failed to improve rail services: residents A day after a train's pantograph broke at Diva station and the resultant delay in services sparked off a rail roko and acts of vandalism by local commuters, Diva residents spoke of being disappointed with their local parliamentarian Rajan Vichare. The MP's promises of ensuring improved rail services for Diva and neighbouring towns have as yet stayed on paper, residents said. In the past seven months, Thane MP Rajan Vichare made six visits to various railway stations for following up on commuter complaints. But the chronic breakdown of services shows that his interventions have failed, residents said. The central line is plagued with technical failures such as pantograph breakages, overhead equipment (OHE) failures and problems with the rail-tracks. Commuters told dna it is high time that the central line is cured of its endemic problems. Sujata Patil, a commuter said, "We can understand about minor issues. But I feel that there is some major problem with the central line which has not been addressed for long, even after the area's MP made many promises in this connection." More than 134 services on central railways were cancelled on 2nd January, leading to complete chaos and anarchy. "We are not bothered about how many visits you (MP Vichare) make to the railway station," said Abhijeet Jaiswal, a commuter. He added, "We only demand improved and better services but services have been worsening in the past few months." Jaiswal said angrily, "The MP's visits are more about seeking a photo opportunity rather than doing actual work." Vishal Rai, another commuter said, "Better services are not only about adding more coupon vending machines (CVM), or automated ticket vending machines (ATVM) and more ticket counters. There is a need to improve infrastructure and maintain it better. Rai added that lakhs of commuters travel on the central line, but the line has has not received upgrades for a long time. That is why, he said, it keeps breaking down, resulting in disruption of services. Commuters and residents said that they voted for their local representatives in the hope that matters would change for the better, but they have worsened instead. Residents said they felt cheated at the hands of their local representatives. dna tried to call up MP Vichare, but he was not available for comment.

2015-01-03CR breakdown: Thane GRP book 12000 people for riot
CR breakdown: Thane GRP book 12,000 people for rioting The Thane GRP have registered a case against around 12,000 people for rioting and damaging government and railway property, after the CR sustained losses of Rs 18 lakh because of protests by commuters. MUMBAI Updated: Jan 03, 2015 21:02 IST The Thane government railway police (GRP) have registered a case against around 12,000 people for rioting and damaging government and railway property, after the Central Railway sustained losses of Rs 18 lakh because of protests by commuters. The Mumbra police have also arrested around 18 people for stone-pelting and vandalising public property. The police claim the extent of damage suggests commuters were joined by local mischief-makers, and are scanning footage from CCTV cameras at Diva station to trace the culprits. If people have any recordings of the violence, we appeal to them to share them with us. We suspect goons were involved in damaging property and in burning vehicles., said VV Lakshminarayan, joint commissioner of police, Thane. The Kalyan and Dombivli GRP also registered cases against unidentified men. Two police vans belonging to the Thane GRP one of the Mumbra police station were set ablaze outside Diva railway station, while two vans were vandalised by people pelting stones. Meanwhile, the damage is not limited to the railways and police alone. When the Mumbra police caught a man who had smashed a motormans cabin glass, they found a hammer and a pomphret in his bag. He told us he and other people had stolen the fish left behind by vendors, said a Mumbra police officer. While NCP leader Jitendra Awhad has said he will demand a judicial inquiry into the lathi charge by the police on the agitating commuters, residents said the violence was begun by a local. Around 8.30am, commuters were sitting on the tracks, when a leader of an auto rickshaw union snatched lathis from policemen and beat them up, trying to get the tracks cleared. This sparked off the violence, which the police had to use lathi charge to control, said residents.

2015-01-03Winter sweets gain popularity in Thane - Times of
Winter sweets gain popularity in Thane Debarati S Sen | TNN | Jan 3, 2015, 12.41 PM IST THANE: Thaneites are enjoying winter. And the fact that this season is also synonymous with a variety of food, makes it all the more popular amongst the numerous food-lovers in the city. Sweets that are winter-special, like the Thal Gajak, Roll Gajak, Rewri, Til Laddoo, Til-gur Patti, Peanut Gajak, Dana Patti, etc have gained popularity over the years in city markets and sweetmeat shops. Shailendra Patil, a resident of Vartak Nagar, who travels to Delhi for business reasons often, says that he is familiar with these sweets. "Earlier these were not too much in demand here and would not be available in Thane. I would bring them from Delhi. Now, most shops have them." These melt-in-the mouth delicacies are said to keep the body warm during this season. Chitra Dongre, a homemaker, says, "These are good for snacking in winter. I have tried making them at home but never get that perfect taste soft-yet-crunchy. Store-bought ones are great." Gajaks are usually set in thin layers or pattis, and have a huge shelf life. "The fact that it can be stored for so long is good. I can give these in my eight-year-old son's tiffin box," states Tahira Singh. Roasted sesame seeds, dried fruits are pounded and then mixed with syrupy jaggery or sometimes even thick sugar syrup to make these sweets. This hammering of the dough helps to release the oils of the seeds and makes it nutritious and tasty.

2015-01-02Thane witnesses commuter rage, arson after suburba
Thane witnesses commuter rage, arson after suburban train services disrupted PTI|Jan 02, 2015, 01.58 PM IST MUMBAI: Suburban Thane witnessed commuter rage today as irate rail passengers indulged in arson, pelted stones at police and staged a 'rasta roko' after train services on Central Railway route were disrupted due to technical failure, prompting police to cane-charge the protestors. The suburban train services on the Harbour line also came to a halt after some motormen were injured in the violence and refused to operate trains due to security issues. Maharashtra Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis reviewed the situation after the outbreak of train commuters' fury and appealed the people to maintain peace. "The Chief Minister has appealed for peace. Police is taking all steps to restore peace," Minister of State for Home Ranjit Patil told reporters here. "The CM is monitoring the situation every five minutes. He has spoken to Railway Minister Suresh Prabhu," he said. Angry rail commuters staged a 'rail roko' at Diva station between Thane and Kalyan, after they were stranded for hours following breakdown of pantographs of a Chhatrapati Shivaji Terminus (CST)-bound train at 6.30 AM near Thakurli station. The protesters also set on fire at least three vehicles, including a police jeep, a Thane civic official said. Three pantographs of a CST-bound train from Badlapur got damaged and the train came to a standstill with huge sparks. Soon after, another Kalyan-CST train also experienced similar technical failure. Thus, the entire slow line towards CST crumbled in the morning peak hours. Even the fast train services got affected as trains were diverted. At around 9.15 AM, commuters staged a rail roko at Diva station and they came on tracks in huge numbers. Many were seen walking on tracks towards Dombivili station. The ticket window at Dombivili station on Central line was broken, and automatic ticket vending machines (ATVM) were thrown on tracks. Police cane-charged the protestors gathered on the tracks. "The commuters occupied all four lines between Diva and Mumbra since 8.30 AM. We are not able to operate the services because of it. There was power supply problem in morning but it was restored," a railway official said. BJP spokesperson Madhav Bhandari said Fadnavis has asked Patil to visit Thane and ascertain the situation. "Prabhu has spoken to railway officials. The CM has spoken to police officials," Bhandari said. "Fadnavis has instructed officials not to use force or cane charge and help restore normalcy," he said. Following the violent protests, the motormen on Harbour and Central line called for a strike, bringing Mumbai's lifeline to a halt. "As these protests turned ugly, some motormen too got injured. Following this, motormen across the Central and Harbour lines decided to go on a strike. However, after an assurance from senior railway authorities, the strike has been called off," a railway PRO told PTI. In the wake of the disruptions, MOS for Home Ranjit Patil has been asked to immediately ensure that law and order is maintained, Fadnavis said. "Discussed the matter with Railway Minister Suresh Prabhu. We will look into the reasons of disruption and work on corrective course for future," he said. State minister Vinod Tawde instructed the Collector of suburbs to personally monitor the situation and asked BEST to run more buses on the affected routes.

Hence, we decided to launch a joint operation with Palghar police to nab the culprits," said a crime branch officer. Officers of Unit 11 received information that one of the members of the gang would be coming to Shantinagar in Wadala to plan another crime. Crime branch officials, on a tip off, arrested three people from Wadala on December 31. On sustained interrogation, they confessed to the crime and revealed that they had sold the stolen car and the booty in Gujarat. "One of the accused has a history of such crimes and has been arrested a number of times. He was currently out on bail," said an officer. "He told us he wanted money for his daughter's wedding and had hence got involved in the crime. We have handed over the accused to Kasa police station in Palghar where they have a registered a case against them."

Mumbai commuters get violent over rail disruption, set ablaze two vehicles in Thane ET Bureau|Updated: Jan 02, 2015, 01.44 PM IST MUMBAI: Angry commuters torched two private vehicles and pelted stones damaging railway property outside Diwa railway station in Thane district near Mumbai to protest against disruption caused in central railway's suburban service during peak hours on Friday morning. Police had to resort to lathi charge to control the situation. According to latest reports, all motormen (train drivers) working on central railway's main & harbor line have launched an agitation to protest against violence by commuters.

2015-01-02Hike in RR rates makes affordable housing a distan
Hike in RR rates makes affordable housing a distant dream in Thane Sanjeev Shivadekar | TNN | Jan 3, 2015, 02.07 AM IST THANE: The New Year doesn't seem to be too good for property buyers in Thane. Affordable housing will continue to be a distant dream for many families as property prices are expected to rise by five to seven per cent in the wake of fresh hike of an average 20 per cent in the ready reckoner (RR) rates by the Maharashtra government, say real estate players. According to the developers, the buyer has to pay nearly 11 per cent as government related charges which include stamp duty, registration fees, taxes (service tax and local body cess). But with rise in the RR, he/she will have to shell out nearly 16 to 18 per cent as taxes while buying a property. While the rate for the residential areas has been increased by 20%, the rates for open space and commercial spaces, the hike is in range of five to 15 per cent. Based on the RR rates of the areas the stamp duty and registration charges are calculated for the property. The RR rates are fixed by the government and no property sale or lease can be executed below the rates fixed by the government. The outgo of higher stamp duty has not gone well with the buyers too. "Flat prices are beyond reach of a 'common man'. The BJP government is talking about making affordable houses available for the needy, but, instead of providing any relief, by hiking RR rates the government is only adding to the buyer's woes," said Dipti Murkar, who is looking to buy a property in Thane. According to the report compiled by a private investment advisory firm in real estate sector, the absorption rate of flats has slipped down to 28 per cent in 2013-14 as against 40 per cent recorded in 2012-13. Hit by sluggish sales of flats in 2014 and anticipating further negative impact on sales with rise in RR, the Thane unit of the Maharashtra Chamber of Housing Industry (MCHI) has decided to air their grievances to the chief minister Devendra Fadnavis. The MCHI association had already written a letter to the state government asking the administration not to hike the RR rate. "If government goes ahead with its decision to hike RR, then the industry is likely to bleed further," Ajay Asher, vice-president, MCHI, Thane, added.

Mumbai-Thane-Raigad trains disrupted, agitating commuters cane-charged January 2, 2015 IANS 0 Comments Thane Police used batons to check mob violence, while Maharashtra Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis and other ministers appealed to angry commuters to keep calm. The services were partially restored hours later. Thousands rushing to work in south Mumbai and other areas were left stranded as the train services were disrupted after an overhead pantograph snapped near the Thakurli railway station in Thane around 6.45 a.m. Many commuters started impromptu protests by squatting on the railway track at the next station, Diva. Police used batons to clear the tracks, prompting violence by commuters who attacked rail officials and injured a motorman. Others threw stones at vehicles parked outside the station. Ten coaches of Central Railway were damaged. Additional security forces were rushed but the crowds damaged around half a dozen private and government vehicles. There were reports of three vehicles being set on fire. The protesters attacked stalls and railway property. Also damaged were railway property including seven Automatic Ticket Vending Machines (ATVMs) besides three booking counters at Diva and a level crossing gate. The protests spread to Dombivali station where six ATVMs were ransacked and two ticket booking counters vandalized. The chaos resulted in a virtual paralysis of the suburban train network the lifeline of Mumbai which ferries over seven million people daily servicing the crucial Mumbai-Thane-Raigad region. After nearly six hours, Central Railway started skeletal services afternoon but the working day was wasted for several thousands of stranded office-goers. Thane Guardian Minister and Shiv Sena leader Eknath Shinde and Minister of State for Home Ranjit Patil rushed to Diva and appealed to commuters to remain peaceful. We are aware of the acute problems the commuters are facing on this section The central government has been apprised of this and steps are being initiated to mitigate the issues, Shinder said. I appeal to commuters to cooperate with the authorities, he said. Furious commuters blasted the state and central governments and the railways for not seriously attending to the complaints of Mumbai commuters who have been at the receiving end for decades. Grandiose schemes are announced, but where is the implementation? asked one irate commuter, A.R. Patil. Even a minor problem like a broken pantograph can derail the entire system. How is this possible? Why is there no alternative? People have to suffer regularly due to the apathy of the railways. The MSRTC, Kalyan-Dombivali Municipal Transport, Thane Municipal Corp and Mumbais BEST deployed additional buses to clear the rush of stranded commuters but most preferred to return home. The trouble hit the departures of at least five long-distance trains including Mumbai-Pune Sinhagad Express, Mumbai-Nagpur Sewagram Express, Mumbai-Gondia Vidarbha Express, Mumbai-Ferozepur Punjab Mail and Mumbai-Howrah Mail. Most were delayed by five-six hours.
