Psychiatrist Dr Harish Shetty said: “This seems like a major form of mental illness. The incident seems to be planned and committed by someone who was not well. Several social factors including stress, property dispute, relationships and poverty have to be considered to understand what exactly transpired.” Read more:  Thane murders: Bodies were lying in a pool of blood, says neighbour Shetty added that a proper psychological autopsy of the sequence of events and the family history is a must. Psychologists said there are thousands of citizens facing mental stress and violent incidents are preventable if the signs are noticed at an early stage. “The bizarre act was a result of ignoring the early signs of poor mental health and the stigma associated with it,” said Shetty, adding that there is a need to increase awareness on mental health issues. Clinical psychologist and psychotherapist Gauri Raut said: “It may be possible he was under the influence of drugs or alcohol. Normally, a person would buy time between the killings and then realise the nature of the offence.” Raut, who has been practising for more than 15 years, said there would have been subtle signs of depression which Hasnain Warekar’s family may have missed. “There are lots of signs to identify poor mental health but many a times these are subtle and can be missed. In depression, the way a person talks is different; he would make statements like ‘I want to give up everything’,” added Raut. Psychological experts said one of the common symptoms is material detachment. For instance, a person starts giving up his belongings to others. A person also withdraws from activities he once loved. Criminologist Vijay Raghavan said, “There are so many crimes committed in a fit of rage. There may be a long-pending dispute or stress. Unless we know what triggered and the circumstances, it won’t be possible to comment.” Tags Thane Hasnain Harish Shetty Gauri Raut Share Share Share Share Read more from Livemint also read In Rajkot, college students ensure no open defecation Live Budget 2016: Rs 35,984 cr for agriculture, farmers’ welfare Rape accused MLA Raj Ballav Yadav’s properties attached Police arrest 2 juveniles for gangraping tribal girl, filming act Show comments top news Budget highlights: Organic farming gets push, cooking gas for BPL Leonardo DiCaprio wins the Oscar but Spotlight’s on Priyanka Chopra Nationalism debate: Fight over Smriti Irani may escalate in Parliament most popular Stay focused ahead of board exams: Modi, Sachin, Anand tell students How Sidharth Malhotra answered KRK’s crass tweet on Alia Bhatt One year after #TheDress, a new illusion: What colour is this jacket? video Watch | Priyanka Chopra stuns Oscars 2016 red carpet Watch | Which actress will dress to impress at Oscars 2016?

(Source: Twitter/@ANI) The Thane police on Monday showed weapon used by the man who killed 14 members of his family in Thane who later committed suicide. The man, last week, had allegedly slit the throats of his family members, including his wife, parents, sisters, and seven children, apart from his own three-month-old daughter, before hanging himself. The police, yet to ascertain the motive behind the gruesome act of 35-year-old Hasnain Warekar, said they would also seek the help of psychiatrists.

According to the neighbours, he said, Hasnain and his family enjoyed a good reputation, and nobody thought he “would even harm an ant”. As to property dispute being a possible trigger, Dumbre said police hadn’t yet come across any evidence of the family owning huge assets, but the probe was on. In July 2012, the accused, his wife and their elder daughter were admitted in Thane’s Titan hospital for food poisoning after taking medicines given by some `hakim’, Dumbre said, adding the police would check the record related to this incident too. The investigators were waiting for the autopsy reports of the victims to find out if they had been sedated before the murder, said Dumbre. The reports were expected in a couple of days. Police learnt from the neighbours that Hasnain used to kill goats for the ritual `kurbani’ (sacrifice), and therefore knew how to use butcher’s knife, the weapon used in the macabre crime.

2016-02-29Thane mass murders stir PETA to write to Rajnath Singh - Times of India
Thane mass murders stir PETA to write to Rajnath Singh Updated: Feb 29, 2016, 16:05 IST MUMBAI: The CEO of People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA), India, Poorva Joshipura, has urged Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh to take steps to ensure police officials across the country take cases of cruelty to animals seriously to help prevent violence against humans, as has now been reported from Thane where 14 members of a family were killed by a man who used to regularly slaughter goats in the locality. In her letter to the home minister, Joshipura referred to the news of 35-year-old man in Thane, Hasnin Warekar, who killed 14 members of his family with a butcher's knife and then hanging himself. According to news reports, the man was known for his skill in killing goats with a sharp weapon. A police officer was also quoted by the media, comparing the family's slaying to the killing of goats. The officer had stated in TOI, "The killings of his family members was similar. The carotid artery was cut, leaving the victims bleeding and dead in just minutes." Joshipura explains it could essentially be said the killer practiced the murder of his family, by first butchering goats. In her letter Joshipura also informs the minister that acts of cruelty to animals are indicative of a deep mental disturbance. Research in psychology and criminology shows that people who commit acts of cruelty to animals often don't just stop there -- many of them move on to hurting other animals, children, women or other people. Joshipura says the police can help protect people at large, by taking cases of cruelty to animals seriously. Joshipura's full letter to Rajnath Singh is as follows. Respected Minister, I am writing from People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) India on behalf of our over 400,000 members and supporters to request you to use your power to ensure police officials across the country take cases of cruelty to animals seriouslyan action that would help protect people at large. As you would be aware, a 35 year old man in Thane, Maharashtra recently slaughtered 14 members of his family with a butcher's knife and then hung himself. According to news reports, the man was known for his skill in killing goats with sharp weapon. Today's Times of India paper quotes a police officer as comparing the family's slaying to the killing of goats. The officer said, "The killings of his family members were similar. The carotid artery was cut, leaving the victims bleeding and dead in just minutes." It could essentially be said the killer practised the murder of his family, by first butchering goats.Acts of cruelty to animals are indicative of a deep mental disturbance. Research in psychology and criminology shows that people who commit acts of cruelty to animals often don't just stop theremany of them move on to hurting other animals, children, women or other people. While such records are not usually kept in India, the US Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) has found that a history of cruelty to animals is one of the traits that regularly appear in its computer records of serial rapists and murderers. And in a study of battered women, nearly 60% said they had partners who had harmed or killed their dogs or other animals. In India too, Veerappan was a serial killer and poacher, and the infamous killings of children in Noida took place at the home of Moninder Singh Pandher who was fond of hunting. There are numerous news articles about cruelty to animals being on the rise in India. We urge you to immediately consider sending a directive to the Home Secretaries of all states and union territories asking that police departments seriously tackle abuses of animals. There is enough evidence to understand that people who are cruel to defenseless animals can also be a potential risk to women, children and the society at large. Police should please be instructed to file FIRs where required and take immediate steps to nab the criminal or criminals before they hurt another animal, child or person.I hope you will agree abuse of any living being including animals is unacceptable and endangers everyone and must be stopped before the culprit or culprits act again. We therefore respectfully urge you to look act on this on an urgent basis. I look forward to your action and response. Thank you in advance for your attention to this important matter. Poorva Joshipura.
2016-02-29Thane massacre: Victims may have been sedated before being butchered - Mid-Day
Thane Massacre: Victims May Have Been Sedated Before Being Butchered Feb 29, 2016, 14:20 IST Blood and viscera samples of victims sent to Kalina forensic lab for analysis; doctors treating survivor Sobiya Bharmal say she is stable, and survived due to timely treatment The lone survivor of the Thane family massacre, Sobiya Bharmal, is currently undergoing treatment at the Titan Hospital. Doctors treating Bharmal said she survived due to timely treatment.Dr Abrar Khan said, We had to put 25 stitches to stop the bleeding. The patient was brought to the hospital in a semi-conscious state. We had to immediately suture the gash across her throat. Though stable, she is in a state of shock. Doctors added her voice box is intact and though Bharmal is unable to talk right now, she will be able to record her complete statement soon. Being the lone witness to the massacre, her statement is of utmost importance. Sedated before slaughter? Medical experts treating Bharmal as well as those who performed autopsy on the deceased at the Thane and Kalwa Civil Hospitals claimed there was a possibility that the victims were sedated before being butchered. Prima facie, Bharmal looked sedated. However, blood loss could be the reason. We have sent her blood samples for testing. Presence of sedatives in the blood will be ascertained only when the reports are out, said a doctor from Titan Hospital. Seconding this opinion, Dr Kempi Patil, civil surgeon at Thane Civil Hospital, also spoke about the possibility of the victims being administered sedatives or poison. He ascertained deep wounds across throats of the deceased as the cause of death. He added that blood and viscera samples were sent to the forensic lab in Kalina for analysis. Well be able to ascertain whether the victims were sedated or not, and the kind of drug used for the same, once the reports are out. All the victims had similar deep and straight slits across their throats, which is the primary cause of their deaths. However, reports will ascertain if they were poisoned before being butchered. Even Hasnains blood and viscera samples were sent to the forensic lab, said Patil. While all the 15 bodies were initially brought to Thane Civil Hospital, seven were later despatched to Kalwa Civil Hospital so that the autopsies could be conducted at the earliest. A team of eight doctors performed autopsies here, Patil said.

Expresphoto by Deepak Joshi IN A WhatsApp text message he sent a day before he is believed to have killed 14 members of his family in the span of 30-40 minutes in the wee hours of Sunday, Hasnain Warekar, 35, told his brother-in-law that he had a surprise for him. Shaukat Khan, who lost his wife Sabina, their daughter and two sons, told The Indian Express on Monday that there was no reason to view the message with any suspicion. “I wish I had known this is what he was talking about,” Shaukat said, in between sobs, outside his residence in Khairna village in Navi Mumbai. Police have now been told Hasnain had taken a loan that Shaukat was aware of. “He had told me about seven months ago that he was initiating an export business for which he was collecting capital. He was an earnest man who anybody could have trusted. He had taken a loan from a few people and when he could not repay it, he had to hand his business decisions to one of them. I do not know who this person is but I have urged the police to check Hasnain’s call data records and also his bank transactions,” Shaukat said. Only on Friday, Hasnain had told Shaukat that an investor had promised a cheque of Rs 25 lakh. “We discussed that the money would come into his account by Tuesday, after which he could repay loans,” said Shaukat.

According to Shaukat, who is in his late-thirties and runs a small business, he spoke to his wife on Saturday evening when Sabina called to inform him that she was almost at the Kasarwadavli home. Around 11.26 pm, he again called her on her cellphone number but she did not answer and he called Hasnain instead. “He picked up the phone and told me they were having dinner. He liked to cook for his family. It was a normal conversation, with no sign of any tension in his voice. He gave the phone to my wife and we spoke for a few minutes. I could hear the children playing and making a lot of noise in the background. They seemed to be having fun like any family does during a get-together,” Shaukat said. He added that he went to bed around 1 am and woke up when a relative called him at 3.45 am, asking him to rush to Thane. “My uncle told me that one of my youngest sisters-in-law (Subia, the sole survivor) had been found in an injured state in the Thane home. I thought there may have been a robbery attempt at the house,” he said. Shaukat said he had known Hasnain as a calm man who loved his sisters immensely and doted on his nephews and nieces. “My children would always be excited about going to their mamu’s home. Even this time, though my daughter had her exams, she insisted on going along. In my 15 years of marriage to his sister, never once had I seen Hasnain lose his cool, nor had my wife told me about him threatening them, not even in playful banter,” he added. In the very next lane, Sabina’s younger sister Mariya Fakki’s husband Arfan sits surrounded by relatives. “He is in no position to talk. He has lost everything,” said his elder brother Ashfaq. “Their family get-togethers were usual. The usual practice was that the sisters went a day before, on Saturdays,” Ashfaq said. On Saturday evening, Sabina Khan and Mariya Fakki left for Thane with their five children in an autorickshaw. Police said Hasnain worked at a company, called Excelsior, in Mulund in 2012, followed by Atlantic Corporation in Thane. “It was a gradual progression and he moved companies after getting a promotion from accountant to senior accountant. After a brief period of unemployment, he started working at an accountancy firm in Vashi where he was earning Rs 25,000 per month,” said Ashutosh Dumbare, Joint Commissioner of Police, Thane. A senior officer said the police are consulting psychiatrists on whether Hasnain was suffering from a psychological disorder. An officer added that they are also trying to check if Hasnain was “under somebody’s influence”. Eight teams, some of which are fanning out beyond the city, have been formed. The police are looking for babas who Hasnain might have consulted. “We are waiting for the forensic report that will prove if there were sedatives in the food,” Dumbare said. An officer also said it appeared that only Hasnain’s father Anwar managed to put up a fight. His’ is the only body with ‘defence wounds’ in the form of cuts on his fingers. The others may have been killed when unconscious, for there are no signs of resistance.

2016-02-28Thane massacre could be rage or response to past injustice: Experts - Times of India
Thane massacre could be rage or response to past injustice: ExpertsMental health experts said the incident in Thane, where a 35-year-old man murdered 14 of his family members before hanging himself, was devoid of explanation and can best be dubbed as “psychotic”.TNN | Feb 28, 2016, 11.02 PM ISTMumbai: Mental health experts said the incident in Thane, where a 35-year-old man murdered 14 of his family members before hanging himself, was devoid of explanation and can best be dubbed as "psychotic". Doctors believe there should be a psychological autopsy in the case to gauge if the attacker had a deep-seated mental illness and to understand circumstances leading to the killings. "In psychiatry, there is something called running amok, but this incident is not so. It was a well-planned and calculated event, where family members were invited, sedated and killed. The reasons for this could be many," said psychiatrist, Dr Harish Shetty, who consults at L H Hiranandani Hospital in Powai. "It could be a deep-seated delusion that all family members are against him. It could also be bizarre vision where he believed the world is not good for his loved ones," said Shetty. "But, at the root, there has to be a mental illness that probably never got diagnosed," he added. Doctors say that studies into minds of killers who have survived after committing mass murders have failed to shed enough light. "The underlying reason could be rage. The attack could also be in response to any past injustice," said Santacruz-based psychiatrist, Dr Milind Joshi. "It could also be pent-up frustration of years that has been triggered by a recent incident. In fact, those who commit such crimes in an agitated state of depression, are actually sufferers from long time," he added. Shetty observed there was a gradual increase in suicide pacts or mass killings followed by acts of killing oneself. "This is a rare incident of mental illness, probably a result of vulnerability, stress or other reasons. But overall there is an increase in such incidents," he said. There is a slow but steady rise in suicide pacts in metros and small towns, according to the National Crime Records Bureau ; 679 people killed themselves under 318 suicide pacts in 2014, including 11 from Maharashtra.

2016-02-28Thane mass murder: He hit us all with a cleaver, says sole survivor - The Indian Express
Thane mass murder: He hit us all with a cleaver, says sole survivor Written by Mohamed Thaver Sadaf Modak Mumbai Updated: Mar 3, 2016, 11:22 Police and experts at the spot where Hasnain murdered 7 kids, 6 sisters including wife, one man from his family committed suicide in jurisdiction of Kasarvadavli police station at Thane at 3 am on Sunday. Throughout Sunday afternoon and later, officers of Thane police fumbled every time Subia Bharmar, 21, the sole survivor of the Kasarwadavli murders, asked for her six-month-old daughter Arsiya. Subia has not been told yet that not just Arsiya but 15 other family members including her parents, sisters, nieces and nephews are dead. The sole survivor of the incident whose account is critical for investigators to piece together what exactly transpired in Hasnain Warekar's bungalow in the wee hours of Sunday, is out of danger but still to recover from the shock. An officer said, She just keeps saying that her brother attacked the family. She still does not know that the family has in fact been wiped out. Doctors fear the trauma might hinder her recovery and hence have told her that the rest of the family members are recuperating in different wards. A woman police constable recorded Subia's preliminary statement on Sunday in which she has confirmed that her brother Hasnain was behind the attack on her family members. Bhai ne sab ko maara. Qurbani ke chhure se mara (Hasnain hit us all with the cleaver used to sacrifice goats), Subia said in her statement. Subia said she woke up just before he attacked her and managed to push him out of the ground floor bedroom and locked herself in. I then shouted for help, Bhai mar raha hain, sab ko mar raha hain, koi bachao mujhe (my brother is attacking everyone, please save me), she said in her statement. Subia's cries for help fell on a woman in the neighbourhood. She then woke her son up who managed to help Subia get out of the house through the window. In her statement, the woman said that there was no property dispute or any fight during dinner that may have led to the incident. It just happened all of a sudden, said an officer privy to the investigation. The semi-conscious Subia was then rushed to Titan Hospital where her statement was recorded later in the day. Subia was married to Sojeph Bharmar two years ago. She had a daughter, Arsiya, five months back who is among the victims. Sisters, children given quiet burial Residents of Khairna village in Navi Mumbai, near Koparkhairne town, the locality where two sisters of Hasnain Warekar lived, were in shock. Shabina Khan and Mariya Fakki, two of Hasnain's four sisters, lived just a lane away from each other. The women and their five children were given a quiet burial on Sunday evening. Relatives recalled how the sisters were simple women with no dispute with their brother or their parents. They would often go to their parents home on weekends. They were close-knit, said a relative. Another relative Waseem said they do not believe Hasnain could have killed the family. We were told that a bloodied knife was found in his hand when he was found hanging from the ceiling fan. How is that possible? He managed to tie more than five knots to the noose with a knife in one hand? Waseem wondered. Waseem said the sisters husbands were too shocked and not in a position to even think about a possible motive for the murder. He said two untoward incidents involving the family had occurred in the past. In the first, the entire family was found poisoned but they were saved after being rushed to the hospital. A police case was registered but the baba who gave the liquid that put them to sleep was never found, he said. The second was an attempt to kill Anwar, Hasnain's father, last year, Waseem said. He worked as a property dealer. He was going on a bike with his friend when he was attacked with a chopper on his back and head by unknown motorbike-borne assailants, he said. Waseem said he suspected there could be outsiders who killed the family for some vested interest nobody is aware of. He said the case needs to be probed from another angle, even though a younger sister had said that bhaijaan had killed the family. Although he admitted that Subia had said it was Hasnain who committed the crime, Waseem believed further investigations should be conducted. Another relative said, Anwar bhai had once told me that he owned a lot of property in Thane village where they had been living for generations. He once told me that he was to earn some big profit from all the land that was taken over by builders.

Express Photo by Deepak Joshi In the wee hours of Sunday, a 35-year-old chartered accountant from Thane allegedly murdered 14 of his family members with a knife and then hung himself to death. The deceased include eight children, his wife, his three sisters, and his parents. The accused has been identified as Hansil Warekar, who resides with his family in a single storied bungalow in Ghodbadar road, police said. According to the police, there was a party organised at the Warekars residence on Saturday night, post which, most of his relatives stayed over. Ashutosh Dumbare, joint commissioner of Thane Police said that the incident is believed to have taken place between 2-2.30 am. “Prima facie evidence suggests that the accused bolted all the doors of the house and murdered his family while they were asleep with a knife that we found near his body. The accused then hung himself after killing his family. There were three rooms in the house, while he was in a room with his wife and two daughters on the first floor, his parents and sisters were in separate rooms on the ground floor,” Dumbare said. According to Dumbare the police was made aware of the matter when one of Hansil’s sisters – Subia Bharmar – had shouted out for help. “Hansil slit the upper part of this victim’s throat, she survived the attack and screamed for help. The survivor’s in-laws, who were in the neighbouring house heard her cries and tried opening the door, but it was locked. The in-laws broke open the grill of a window on the ground floor and entered the house. It was then that the police was alerted of the incident,” Dumbare said. The sole survivor of the attacks has been admitted to Thane’s Titan hospital, where she is undergoing treatment for her injuries. “We have recorded the survivor’s statement. However, the exact cause that triggered her brother to kill her family and himself is still unclear. Our investigation is still underway,” said Dumbare. The police said that the Hansil worked with a private company as a chartered accountant handling their finances. “The family appears to be well known in the area. Initial inquiry does not suggest that there was any trouble within the family to coerce Hansil to take this extreme step,” said a senior Thane Police officer. Kaasarwadvali police are investigating the case.

Thane Massacre: Survivor Clueless About Brother's Intension for Killing 14 of Her Family Members By ANI Published: 28th February 2016 04:22 PM Last Updated: 28th February 2016 04:22 PM First name Surname Receiver's email Email 1 THANE: A woman who survived the massacre by her brother, where he murdered 14 of his family members here on Sunday, told the police that she has no idea as to what spurred her brother to go on the horrific killing spree.Special branch constable Meera Madhurkar, who took a statement from the survivor, told ANI that the victim was clueless about her brother’s intention behind the murders as he seemed to have no qualms with the family.“In her statement she said that her brother had called the entire family for a special dinner. There had been no conflict that night. He was exhibiting normal behaviour towards his parents and his wife. She said that she had no idea why her brother massacred them all. I could not ask her much as she is still traumatised and has 25 stitches on her neck, where she suffered the most injuries,” Madhurkar said.Earlier today, 35-year-old Hansil Warekar, a chartered accountant from Thane murdered 14 of his family members with a knife and then hung himself to death.The deceased include eight children, his wife, his three sisters, and his parents.The bizarre factor here is that the murderer, according to his neighbours, was a cheerful and smart person who showed absolutely no signs of any psychological disorder."It is a sad incident as the man was a very nice person. He was well qualified and worked in a good company. He was calm and composed. It is going to be really hard to figure out the real reason as to why this happened because none of the neighbours, or anyone for that matter was aware of any family dispute," a neighbour told.Kaasarwadvali police are investigating the case.

(ANI Photo) Share Share Share Share A 35-year-old man allegedly killed 14 members of his family, including seven children, by slitting their throats before killing himself in Maharashtra’s Thane, police said on Sunday. The accused, named Hasnain Warekar, may have sedated his parents, wife, sisters and others during dinner and killed them with a knife when they were asleep around 2am, police sources said. The only person who survived, Warekar’s 22-year-old sister Sabiya, reportedly told police he was the culprit. She is undergoing treatment in a Thane hospital and police said they were yet to record her detailed statement as she was in a state of shock. “Sabiya said that all of them were killed by Hasnain with a knife. After that, he hanged himself,” said V Chandan Shive, deputy commissioner of police, Thane. On preliminary examination, police found no traces of sedatives and have sent food samples for further analysis. Warekar used to work at a private company in Navi Mumbai and lived in Kasarvadavli village at Ghodbunder Road in Thane. He had two children, whom he also killed. A neighbour, 40-year-old Saleem Patel, said he heard Sabiya screaming and rushed to their house. “We managed to pull Sabiya out from a window and rushed her to a private hospital and called the police. When police opened the door, we saw bodies lying in a pool of blood. Hasnain was found hanging,” he said. Police are yet to ascertain the exact reason for the murders but are looking at family dispute being a possible trigger for the crime. The Kasarvadavli police are in the process of filing a First Information Report and taking statements and collecting evidence from the scene of the crime. Those who died: Warekar, his wife Jabeen (28), his daughter Mubatishira (6), his daughter Umera (3 months), his father Anwar (55), his mother Asagji (50), his sister Sabina (35), his niece Aanas (12), his niece Sadiya (16), his nephew Ali Hassan (5), his sister Batul (30), his sister Mariya (28), his nephew Umeer (7), his nephew Yusuf (4), his niece Arasiya (5 months).

2016-02-28Thane man butchers 14 of his family, kills himself - Deccan Chronicle
Thane man butchers 14 of his family, kills himself DECCAN CHRONICLE. | ANAMIKA GHARAT AND ASHITA DADHEECHPublished Feb 29, 2016, 12:31 am ISTUpdated Feb 29, 2016, 8:35 am IST Killer Husnain Warerkar’s body was found hanging, with a knife still in his hand.  The eight children murdered by Husnain included his three-month-old daughter Umera. One of his sisters, Subina Bharmal, 22, is the only survivor. Husnain Warerkar (inset) Mumbai: A 35-year-old Thane resident allegedly killed 14 members of his family — including his parents, wife, two daughters, three sisters and their children — at his Thane house before committing suicide in the early hours of Sunday. According to the police, Husnain Warerkar, a commerce graduate who used to prepare Income Tax-related documents for a CA firm in Navi Mumbai, first sedated his family members and then slit their throats with a butcher’s knife. When the police reached the incident spot, they found 14 bodies with throats slit on the ground and first floor of the house. Husnain’s body was found hanging, with a knife still in his hand. Among the seven children murdered by Husnain, was his three month-old daughter, Umera. One of his sisters, Subina Bharmal (22), is the only survivor of the ghastly incident. Though the police has recorded Subina’s statement, the motive is still not clear. According to Thane police source, the angle of black magic has cropped up in the case as Husnain used to visit the dargah and was in touch with a godman since his family was poisoned in 2012. All the members were admitted to Titan Hospital at the time, but later case was dissolved. According to the police, Husnain lived with his parents, wife, two daughters and an unmarried sister. On Saturday, he had invited his three other married sisters and their children for a family get-together. Joint commissioner of police Ashutosh Dhumbre said that they suspect that Husnain offered them drinks laced with sedatives, following which he slit their throats. Husnain offered prayers at around 3 am at a mosque near his house, said the police after speaking to some of his neighbours. It is suspected that after returning home, he slit the throats of his family members one-by-one and then committed suicide by hanging himself. At around 5.30 am, lone survivor Subina shouted for help from the window of the house, following which neighbours gathered there and broke open the window grill. They pulled the injured woman out and admitted her to a hospital. They also alerted the police. While some neighbours took Subina to the hospital, a few of them went to Kasarwadawli police station. DCP V.B. Chandanshive, while talking to The Asian Age, said, “We got a call and reached the spot within 10 minutes. We saw all the bodies lying in a pool of blood and Husnain hanging from a hook on the slab near the staircase of the house. He had a knife in his hand. He has killed everyone in the same way by slitting their throats. The bodies of two of his daughters were found near the staircase. The murders are terrifying. We are investigating the reason behind his sudden act. We suspect that he had given them food mixed with sedatives, but it will be confirmed only after forensic reports.” The police has recorded statements of neighbours. Some of them told the police that they saw Husnain sharpening a butcher’s knife. “Husnain used to sacrifice a goat on Id on behalf of his family. When we questioned him about the knife, he did not reply and simply smiled,” a neighbour told the police. Joint CP Dhumbre said that Husnain’s cellphone and laptop have been seized to get clues about the murders. “Prima facie evidence suggests that the accused bolted all the doors of the house and murdered his family with a knife while they were asleep. The accused then hanged himself after killing his family members. There were three rooms in the house. While he was in a room with his wife and two daughters on the first floor, his parents and sisters were in separate rooms on the ground floor,” he said. While property dispute is suspected to be the reason behind the murders, the police officer said at this stage the motive could not be stated with certainty. The deceased have been identified as Zabin Husnain Warerkar (28, wife of Husnain), Mushadshera Husnain Warerkar (6) and Umera Husnain Warerkar (3 months, both his daughters), Anwar Warerkar (55, father), Azgadi Anwar Warerkar (50, mother), Rabina Shaukat Khan (35), Batul Anwar Warerkar (30), Maria Irfan Fakki (28, all three sisters). The deceased also include children of the three sisters — Anas Shaukat Khan (12), Sabiya Shaukat Khan (16), Ali Hasan Shaukat Khan (5), Umer Irfan Fakki (7), Yusuf Irfan Fakki (4) and Asriya Sojef Burmal (5 months), they said. Thane civil surgeon Dr B.C. Kempi Patil carried out post-mortem of bodies and some were also sent to the civic-run Chhatrapati Shivaji Hospital to speed up the autopsy process.

2016-02-28Thane Man Hangs Himself After Killing 14 Family Members, Sister Clueless About Motive - The New Indian Express
Thane Man Hangs Himself After Killing 14 Family Members, Sister Clueless About Motive By IANS Published: 28th February 2016 09:52 PM Last Updated: 29th February 2016 12:05 AM First name Surname Receiver's email Email 1 THANE: A 32-year old man killed 14 members of his family, including seven children, and later hanged himself in a house here on Sunday, police said.The gory incident took place in the city's Kasarvadavli area when assailant Hasnain Anwar Warekar slit the victims' throats with a large knife one after the other around 1.00 a.m. after lacing their food with drugs.Though the motive behind the massacre is unclear, preliminary inquiries point towards a family dispute over some property matters. Those killed were identified as: Anwar Warekar (father, 65), Asgari (mother, 56), Jabin (wife, 28), Mubatshira, 6, and Umera, three months old, both daughters, Shabina Shaukat Khan, 35, Maria Irfan Fakki, 28, and Batul, 30 (sisters), Anas Shaukat Khan, 12, Sadiya Shaukat Khan, 16, and Arsiya Yusuf Bharmal, five-month old (nieces), Alihasan Shaukat Khan, 5, Umer Irgan Fakki, 7, and Yusuf Irfan Khan (nephews).The lone woman survivor, identified as his sister, Sabia Yusuf Bharmal (22), was rushed to a local hospital where her condition is described as "critical"."Prima facie, evidence suggests that the accused bolted all the doors and windows of the house and killed his family while they slept. Later, he hung himself near a staircase in the bungalow and the knife he used was found near his body," Thane Joint Police Commissioner Ashutosh Dumbare said.Sabia's screams prompted some youths in the locality to break open the doors and windows of the house and rescue her, he said.The knife used for the murder has been seized and a forensic team has been summoned to the crime scene while the bodies have been sent for an autopsy, Dumbare added.Warekar worked as an income tax consultant. Neighbours described him as a quiet, non-controversial and helpful person and there were no complaints of any kind against the family which enjoyed a good reputation in the locality.Locals claimed that a couple of years ago, Warekar had allegedly attempted to poison his family and six members were rushed to a hospital. They fortunately survived.Traumatised survivor cluelessA woman who survived the massacre by her brother, where he murdered 14 of his family members here on Sunday, told the police that she has no idea as to what spurred her brother to go on the horrific killing spree.Special branch constable Meera Madhurkar, who took a statement from the survivor, told ANI that the victim was clueless about her brother’s intention behind the murders as he seemed to have no qualms with the family.“In her statement she said that her brother had called the entire family for a special dinner. There had been no conflict that night. He was exhibiting normal behaviour towards his parents and his wife. She said that she had no idea why her brother massacred them all. I could not ask her much as she is still traumatised and has 25 stitches on her neck, where she suffered the most injuries,” Madhurkar said.The bizarre factor here is that the murderer, according to his neighbours, was a cheerful and smart person who showed absolutely no signs of any psychological disorder."It is a sad incident as the man was a very nice person. He was well qualified and worked in a good company. He was calm and composed. It is going to be really hard to figure out the real reason as to why this happened because none of the neighbours, or anyone for that matter was aware of any family dispute," a neighbour told ANI. (With inputs from ANI) Movies Leo and Kate: A Heart-warming Tale of True Hollywood Devotion Travel 3 Indian Beaches in Asian Top Ten.

2016-02-26National Disaster Response Force to set up a camp in Thane - Times of India
National Disaster Response Force to set up a camp in ThaneManoj BadgeriThe Thane Municipal Corporation (TMC) has allocated space for the National Disaster Response Force (NDRF) to set up a camp at Pokhran-2 to provide prompt response to any emergency situation reported in the Thane district. | TNN | Feb 26, 2016, 10.15 PM IST Thane: The Thane Municipal Corporation (TMC) has allocated space for the National Disaster Response Force (NDRF) to set up a camp at Pokhran-2 to provide prompt response to any emergency situation reported in the Thane district. The facility will come up on a 10,000 sq feet amenity plot at Urwi Park on Pokhran-2 road. A provision for the same has been made in the municipal budget for the next fiscal where the center comprising of training centres, residential facilities and adequate parking space for their vehicles and storage for their equipment will be provided. The request for a NDRF centre in Thane was proposed by the district administration last year following two back-to-back incidents of building collapse at Thakurli and Thane. Currently, the team is put at the Andheri sports complex and it takes a long time to reach the district. Last year, after the force was summoned to help the local relief teams, it took over an hour to access the spots, thanks to the distance. Initially, a proposal to allot space for the force at Dadoji Konddev stadium was being considered, but was later modified to the amenity plot in Pokhran 2. ''We have asked for a squad to be deployed here in Thane,'' said a top district official. When contacted, a NDRF official said they were unaware of any such development as the decision to set up a camp is taken by the ministry of home affairs. Sachidanand Gawde, chief of NDRF operations in Mumbai said they had received a request from the Thane Municipal Commissioner, but are yet to be notified of any plans to relocate.

2016-02-26Thane man acquitted in murder case on benefit of doubt - Mid-Day
Thane man acquitted in murder case on benefit of doubt By PTI |Posted 26-Feb-2016 Thane: A local court in Thane has acquitted a 24-year -old man in a 2014 murder case giving him the benefit of doubt. District Principal Judge SK Kotwal in his judgement, pronounced recently, observed that the prosecution failed to prove the case under IPC section 302 (murder) beyond reasonable doubt, and hence, gave the benefit of doubt to accused Mohammad Jiyaullah alias Ansari. Ansari, who worked at a textile factory in Bhiwandi here, was accused of killing his colleague Rehman Ansari, aged 25 at the time of incident, on September 1, 2014. Public prosecutor Sangita Phad in her submission told the court that accused and the victim knew each other well. On the night of the incident, the accused called up Rehman and took him to a place in Hanuman Tekdi and forced him to have a drink. He was found dead the next day in Koni village in Bhiwandi. The prosecution also said that the victim spoke to his brother over phone on the day of incident. Nizampura police station lodged a case of murder in connection with the incident against unidentified person. Defense counsel PS Mahimkar contested the case and said the prosecution had failed to prove the motive behind the killing. The last seen theory with the accused has not been substantiated at all and the accused cannot be convicted only on circumstantial evidence, the counsel argued. The court, after the submissions of the prosecution and defense, concluded that the accused be given the benefit of doubt and acquitted him of all the charges levelled against him.

Caught On Camera: Shiv Sena Man Allegedly Assaults Woman Constable In ThaneOthers | Agencies | Updated: February 27, 2016 00:41 ISTEMAILPRINTCOMMENTSThe incident occurred around 11 a.m. on Thursday at the busy Nitin Chowk on the Eastern Express Highway in Thane.Mumbai:  A Shiv Sena member was arrested today for allegedly assaulting a worker a woman traffic constable in full public view in Thane. Yuva Sena chief Aditya Thackeray today said accused Shashikant Kalgude, arrested on the charge of attacking an on-duty woman police officer on Thursday, was no longer associated with the party.Distancing itself from the incident, the party it "had nothing to do" with the attack. "Absolutely nothing to do with the party at all, (it) doesn't endorse (the assault)," Mr Thackeray said. "Office bearer or not, doesn't endorse the shameful act," Mr Thackeray tweeted about the incident. The brutal assault on the woman traffic cop - whose identity has been withheld by the police - was captured on a CCTV installed nearby. Shocked people from across the state bombarded the Shiv Sena leaders with tweets and messages. The incident occurred around 11 a.m. on Thursday at the busy Nitin Chowk on the Eastern Express Highway in Thane when the 29-year-old constable noticed the accused talking on his mobile phone while driving. Mr Kalgude ignored the constable's signal to stop and attempted to drive his sport utility vehicle past her but she jumped in front, forcing him to stop. She demanded to see his driving licence and vehicle documents, but he allegedly abused her, came out of the SUV and slapped and punched her viciously, as stunned pedestrians and other drivers looked on. As the constable bled profusely from her nose, a lawyer Pratik Pawar passing by on a bike tried to catch him but was also slapped and jostled in return. But Pawar held on to the accused and asked an onlooker to summon the police. Mr Kalgude was taken to the Naupada police station and booked for assault and use of criminal force to deter a public servant from discharge of duty and molestation. State Women's Commission chief Chitra Wagh condemned the assault, as Thane Police decided to recommend suspension of Kalgude's driving licence. Congress' leader of opposition Radhakrishna Vikhe-Patil, meanwhile, condemned the assault.   Story First Published:February 27, 2016 00:31 ISTTrendingMovies: Rajesh Khanna's Iconic Bungalow Aashirwad Demolished by New OwnerOffbeat: How New York Reacted to Man, 65, With His 12-Year-Old 'Bride'Profit: Economic Survey 2016: Here Are 10 Must-Know PointsRelatedShiv Sena Taunts PM Modi Over 'Conspiracy' RemarkMake In India Week: Shiv Sena Takes A Dig At BJP Over MOUs SignedJNU Row: Shiv Sena Criticises Congress, Samajwadi PartyMedical College Professor Arrested On Sexual Assault Charges In CuttackShare this story onALSO READEconomic Survey: Watch Analysis With Arvind Subramanian And Prannoy RoyShiv SenaShiv Sena manwoman cop assaulted................................

According to data from the air quality monitoring station located at Marathon Chowk, Teen Haath Naka, levels of particulate matter (PM10) — soot and dust particles smaller than 10 microns in size which can be inhaled into the body causing respiratory ailments — more than four times the permissible limits. On February 23, PM10 levels were 426 microgrammes per cubic metre (ug/m3) as against a safety limit of 100ug/m3. The station started collecting data from February 11 and citizens will be able to access the data by month-end. System for Air Quality Weather Forecasting and Research (SAFAR) began their real-time pollution monitoring at 10 locations in the city from June. “We observed that the major source of air pollution in Thane is from vehicles, followed by construction. There are four pollutants that are being measured — PM10, oxides of nitrogen (NOX), sulphur dioxide (SO2) and ozone (O3). We get real-time updates every hour of the rise and fall of pollutants and at the end of the day, a 24-hour average of the four pollutants establishes the pollution level for the day,” said Manisha Pradhan, pollution control officer, TMC.

2016-02-25Sena man slaps, rains punches on female traffic cop in Thane - Times of India
Sena man slaps, rains punches on female traffic cop in ThaneNishikant KarlikarA Shiv Sena functionary has been arrested for allegedly assaulting a female traffic constable after she pulled him up for talking on the phone while driving at a busy junction in Thane on Thursday morning | Feb 26, 2016, 01.45 AM IST(Representative image) THANE: A Shiv Sena functionary has been arrested for allegedly assaulting a female traffic constable after she pulled him up for talking on the phone while driving at a busy junction in Thane on Thursday morning. While motorists and passersby stood mute as he slapped and rained punches on her, an alert advocate intervened and took the accused to police station. Around 11am, the 29-year-old constable (name withheld), who was stationed under the Eastern Express Highway flyover at Nitin Junction, noticed Shashikant Kalgude (44) driving his SUV while chatting on his mobile phone. She signalled him to stop his car, but he ignored her and tried to drive past another vehicle. However, Kalgude was forced to apply the brakes when she came in front of his SUV. "When the constable asked him to show his his driving licence and vehicle documents, Kalgude started abusing her. He then slapped and punched her so hard that her nose started bleeding," said an officer from the Naupada police station. Lawyer Pratik Pawar told TOI that he was passing by the junction on his bike when he saw a huge crowd and stopped. He said that he saw Kalgude hold the female constable by the collar and slap her repeatedly while hurling abuses. "People were just watching the assault; no one went to her aid. When I intervened, the accused slapped and pushed me too," Pawar told TOI. "But I was determined to nab the man who was wearing a locket of Shivaji Maharaj and beating a slim, hapless woman. So, I held on to him and told an onlooker to call the police. Later, I took him to the Naupada police station where the female traffic constable, who was bleeding profusely, registered a case and the accused was arrested." Kalgude has been booked under sections 353 (assault or criminal force to deter public servant from discharge of his duty) and 354 (molestation) of the Indian Penal Code. He was later produced in a magistrate court and remanded in police custody for a day.

2016-02-252 college kids from Thane drown in dam during picnic - Mid-Day
2 college kids from Thane drown in dam during picnic By Faisal Tandel |Posted 2 hours The duo ventured deeper into the Pise dam, where a group of nine had gone for a picnic; it took 4 hours to fish out their bodies  A Fun-filled outing for nine friends ended in tragedy after two of them drowned while swimming in the Pise dam on Tuesday afternoon. The deceased were identified as Ankit Singh (17) and Ashutosh Chavan (17), both residents of Bhiwandi. Both the teenagers were students of Laxman Devram Sonavane College of Arts and Commerce in Kalyan. Ankit Singh and Ashutosh Chavan, both residents of Bhiwandi, were the students of L D Sonavane College Their seven friends were identified as Shubham Verma and Avesh Khan from Sonavane college, Pratik Chaturvedi from R K Talreja College, Jaiyanti Chaudhary and Yash Vaite from Agarwal College and Shreya Londhe and Samati Tompe from Birla College. Speaking to mid-day, Shubham Verma said it was a collective decision to go for a picnic to Khandeshwari Mandir followed by Pise dam. “We left at 1 pm from our homes and had lunch together after visiting the mandir. We then decided to go for a swim at the dam. We had been planning this picnic for quite some time, but kept deferring it due to cash crunch.” He added that all the boys entered the dam for a swim at around 2.30 pm. “Our friends, who were outside, clicked our pictures. Ashutosh and Ankit ventured further into the dam and failed to gauge its depth. Unable to swim back, they started screaming for help. We could see them moving their arms frantically,” Verma said. Upon realising that the water was too deep for any of them to swim over and help the duo, all seven friends started shouting for help. “A villager rushed to our aid. He did jump into the water, but couldn’t save them,” said Verma. Vijay Patil, the villager who rushed to help the teenagers, said, “I jumped into the water hoping to save the boys, but to no avail.” CopspeakConstable Anil Rathod from Titwala police station said a local called and informed the police about the accident. “We immediately informed the fire brigade. Even the firemen came out empty-handed. Finally, we handed over underwater breathing apparatus to the locals so that they could search deeper. It took four hours to pull the boys out of the water, following which they were rushed to Rukmani Bai hospital in Kalyan. However, doctors declared them dead on arrival and ascertained drowning as the cause of death,” he added. Recent tragedyOn February 1, 14 students of Pune's Maharashtra Cosmopolitan Education Society's Abeda Inamdar College lost their lives at Murd beach after they were swept away by a huge wave while they were busy clicking selfies. A total of 116 students from First, Second and Third-year BSc (Computer Science), along with 11 faculty members, had gone to Murud for a picnic.

Sapke is a resident of Barrage road in Badlapur (west) where he owns a construction firm.The incident Speaking to mid-day, VC Dolas, senior police inspector, Vitthalwadi police station said, "In his statement he claimed that he was sitting in the drivers seat waiting for his wife, when the two accused Shankar Suresh Vasita (30) and Suraj Abhang (20) approached the car from the left.

Seeing that the revolver had fallen inside, Shankar and Suraj started running," said CN Khupse, police sub-inspector, Vitthalwadi police station. "I was waiting for my wife as she was coming with my daughter and we were heading to Sanjeevni Hospital. Had I been approached five minutes later, my daughter and wife would have also been targeted in the incident," said Sapke.The chase begins Khupse added, "Sapke, taking advantage of the situation, picked up the revolver and started running behind them.

"We found that both are notorious criminals who have been booked across Thane and Pune for jewellery theft and other crimes. Both are from the same gang. Since the last few months, they were having an argument over some issue that lead to a dispute among them. Later, they began defaming each other in public. Hence, Shankar decided to kill Sapke," added Dolas. Cops launch operation After the unsuccessful chase, Sapke contacted NT Kadam, senior police inspector, anti extortion cell and informed him about the incident. He then approached the Vitthalwadi police station, where he registered a case under Sections 307 (attempt to murder) and 34 (common intention) of the Indian Penal Code (IPC) and different sections of the arms act. After this, the Vithhalwadi police conducted a search operation and arrested Shankar and Suraj. Khapse said, "Both of them were arrested on Tuesday and have confessed to the crime. They said they committed the crime to take revenge as they belonged to the same gang. They have been remanded in police custody till February 29."Sapke's criminal past Sapke used numerous aliases. He was allegedly a henchman in Chhota Rajans gang. He was a close aide of Mudaliar, an active member of Chhota Rajan gang, and a sharpshooter.

2016-02-25Now, bouncers to protect Thane Municipal Commissioner - Mid-Day
Now, bouncers to protect Thane Municipal Commissioner By Faisal Tandel |Posted 25-Feb-2016 For security reasons, the Thane Municipal Corporation (TMC) has decided to appoint private bouncers to protect Thane Municipal Commissioner Sanjeev Jaiswal from March 1 Thanekars don’t be surprised to see Thane Municipal Commissioner Sanjeev Jaiswal accompanied with five bouncers as security from March 1. For security reasons, the Thane Municipal Corporation (TMC) has decided to appoint private bouncers for the TMC commissioner. The Thane civic body which will be paying for the security guards has sanctioned monthly expenses of Rs 2.92 lakh for the bouncers. Representational Pic The issue of security is a sore issue for the Municipal Commissioner with last week seeing a RTI activist attacking Deputy Municipal Commissioner and Public relation officer of TMC, Sandeep Malvi. Subhash Thombre, 49, the accused, who claimed to be a Shiv Sena leader and a social activist, was subsequently arrested. The incident took place when additional municipal commissioner Ashok Rankhamb and DMC Sandeep Malvi were hearing Thombre regarding a right to information isssue. Thombre allegedly lost his cool during the hearing and started absuding Malvi before assaulting him, the complaint said. On January 18, a Hindu Sena activist blackened Jaiswal's nameplate at the TMC headquarters to protest demolition of a temple at Pokharan Road No1. The incident which allegedly took place in the presence of more than 50 policemen and TMC security guards left Jaiswal reportedly very upset. “After nameplate incident we have decided on bouncers. Now, the Commissioner has started a road widening project, many structures have been removed, so there is need for security. In December 2015, the Commissioner was busy with projects on Ghodbunder Road, one person approached him directly and started abusing him. Such incidents have increased so we have decided to go for private protection,” said a senior TMC officer who was processing the process. “We have called for tenders the third time and finally got a response. Five bouncers (security guards) will be appointed during office time on a 11-month agreement. And TMC will pay Rs 2.92 lakh per month for five private security guards. New guards may join duty from March 1,” said the officer on condition of anonymity. Last week in a general body meeting, corporators also raised the issue of poor security at TMC headquarters. Shiv Sena Corporator Ashok Vaity has suggested deploying security guards for officers also.

2016-02-24Promises made by rlys to link int'l airport-Thane, Kalwa-Airoli empty - Times of India
Promises made by rlys to link int’l airport-Thane, Kalwa-Airoli emptyManoj BadgeriPending Projects Run Over Hopes | TNN | Feb 25, 2016, 01.07 AM IST Thane:The railway administration has failed to live up to its promises made to suburban commuters in the previous budget as none of the big-ticket projects announced by minister Suresh Prabhu here has seen the light of the day. The 2015-16 budget saw a slew of projects lined up for the suburbs. Projects such as the Navi Mumbai airport-Thane rail link, a 24-km Panvel-Karjat-Khopoli line doubling, adding the 5th and 6th lines between Thane and Diva among others find a mention in the budget speech of the minister. The extended suburbs of Thane and beyond are the highest revenue grossers on the Central Railway. The 2015 figures reveal that Dombivli earned the highest daily revenue from ticket sales at Rs 14.94 lakh. This was followed by Thane at Rs 13.84 lakh and Kalyan at Rs 12.55 lakh. The density of passengers here has also shot up. "Passenger growth and revenue has shifted to Thane and beyond in the last five years. The previous budget mentioned few projects which could change and ease commuting on the suburban network. Sadly, none of the projects have seen the light of the day this year," said a railway official. Projects like the 2-km Kalwa-Airoli link saw some initial surveys undertaken but not further. Activists claimed that though the canvas of this project was comparatively small, the results could have been huge as a notable volume of passengers travelling to Thane for boarding Vashi locals would have been reduced. Even basic issues like curbing track deaths by erecting fencing between the lines didn't gather momentum as several people continued to lose lives. A group of passenger activists had requested the railways to remove ramps at platform ends as they observed these slopes were giving commuters' easy access to reach the tracks in turn risking their lives. "Stations such as Diva see fatal mishaps because of track crossing. If these slopes are sealed, commuters will not be able to access tracks," said Adesh Bhagat, an activist from Diva. The issue of making Diva into a terminus for local trains has also been sidelined. The issue of easing traffic density at Thane station by developing an extended platform has also remained only on paper. Passengers travelling to Konkan were also assured of halts of Duronto Express at Thane but that too is yet to be implemented. Apart from a few increase in services on the Trans-Harbour link, there hasn't been any capacity augmentation.

The residents are complaining that since last 1-2 years, noise pollution has increased so much that it causes major inconvenience. "There's Vedant hospital in our locality and even patients get disturbed by the noise. Instead of having that ground used for marriages and events, it should be converted into a sports club or should have games for kids where it will be widely used by residents," said Avinash Bhide, Chairman Vedant Complex.Parimal Kulkarni, Chairman of Dosti Vihar agrees with Avinash’s opinion adding that the Thane Municipal Corporation (TMC) should take action against people who cross the permissible limits of music. "Along with noise pollution, vehicles are also parked illegally on the roads. We are planning to write a letter to TMC Commissioner to look into the matter and we are hoping a positive response," he added. Chairman of Kores Nakshatra Complex Association, Sandeep Patil also suggested converting the ground into a sports club for children as well as elders.The ward committee of Vartak Nagar has put up a board also outside the ground stating that noise level should not exceed above 55 decibel but it often goes beyond 70 decibels. Also, eco-friendly crackers which produce less noise should be used but event managers violate this rule which causes noise and air pollution. When Iamin spoke to Chhaya Mankar, Assistant Commissioner of Vartak Nagar ward committee, she said that if the TMC commissioner gives a green signal, they will take action against the rule breakers.   Wednesday, 24 February 2016 - 5:50pm IST | Rupali Shinde | Edited by: Samiya Latief

The court had earlier granted bail to another corporator, Najeeb Mulla of the NCP. All four corporators are accused to abetting the suicide after Parmar named them in his suicide note and had been arrested. Special public prosecutor Raja Thakre contested bail, saying the state has moved a higher court against the bail given to Mulla, who walked out of Thane jail on February 19. After the three got bail, he said the state would move against them in the higher court too. "This is a sensitive case and taking into account the larger interest of society (there has been an outcry over the suicide), the court should not grant bail to the three corporators," Thakre told the court. The four corporators cannot be absolved only by arguing that there are other names mentioned in Parmar's suicide note. "The suicide note of deceased Parmar is to be seen in a larger perspective... it is almost a dying declaration," he said. At one point, the special public prosecutor pointed out the irregularities committed in a residential project by the construction company managed by Jagdale. "These so-called guardians of the city were raising issues of illegalities about other projects when they themselves are indulging in illegal activities," he said. Defence lawyer Gajanan Chavan retorted that the disputes had been settled by Jagdale, and argued that this was not the point of discussion presently, it was whether the applicant was eligible for bail or not. Thakre argued that investigators had enough evidence to prove the case against the corporators prima facie, and told the court there were monetary transactions between Sudhakar Chavan and Parmar, a claim contested by Chavan's lawyer Hemant Sawant. Sawant said these charges were a calculated attempt to defame the corporators before the civic elections in 2017. Parmar's side started making allegations against the corporators after they found out that Parmar, who got preferential treatment in the civic corridors, wanted his projects to be saved from the proposed Metro route and had approached officials, Sawant claimed.

2016-02-23Thane: Police constable's son among seven held for dacoity - Mid-Day
Thane: Police constable's son among seven held for dacoity By Faisal Tandel |Posted 23-Feb-2016 A 23-year-old son of a head police constable, attached to the Protection branch of Mumbai Police, was among the seven people arrested recently by Kalyan crime branch for attempting dacoity. The accused were about to loot a petrol pump, when the Kalyan crime branch sleuths laid a trap and arrested all seven. After the arrest, the accused confessed to two dacoities they committed in the past. Cops have recovered cash, mobiles, a fridge and LCD TV they purchased from the cash. They mostly keep a watch on people moving with cash and accordingly plan and rob them. Representational pic The seven arrested accused are Gopinath Survase alias Gopya 29, Bhimsingh Kevat alias Ajay 26, Shailesh Raosaheb Rathod 23, Sushant Jadhav 20, Balraj alias Bali Suryavanshi 24, Pankaj Patil 25 and Ananta maruti Mhatre 30. All are residents of Kalyan. Shailesh is the son of Raosaheb Rathod, a head constable attached to the protection branch of Mumbai Police. The police had recovered around Rs 1.84 lakh cash and a motorcycle from Rathod. The Kalyan crime branch officials received information on February 13 that around 9 accused are going to commit a dacoity. “We received information that some nine people are going to commit dacoity at Indian Oil petrol pump situated at Gharvali village on Kalyan Shil Road between 9:30pm to 10pm, where they were going to rob cash from the counter. We prepared a squad on the basis of information provided by a secret informant, and found that they were sitting at Malhar Dhaba, where they had gathered to plan the daicoty. We laid a trap outside the dhaba and found the nine people, among whom, four people came on two different motorcycle and five people in a car. Our informant pointed out the accused and we arrested around seven people, while two people ran away from the spot,” said Shailendra Nagarkar, Senior Police Inspector, Kalyan crime branch. The police, after the arrest of the seven, have seized two country-made pistols, one revolver, 9 cartridges, mirchi powder, a nylon rope and wooden stick. “We have seized the two vehicles and the Swift car from them and accordingly a case was registered against them under Sections 399 and 402 of the Indian Penal Code and sections of the Arms act,” informed Suganda Bagul, Assistant Police Inspector, Kalyan crime branch. The police, on further interrogation of the accused, learnt about two dacoities they committed in Manpada and Narpoli. “During interrogation, they confessed that on February 4, they looted Rakesh Patel 28, the manager with Angadiya courier limited. Patel came for collection at different shops in Bhiwandi. After collecting the amount, he was returning back to his main office in Malad, when he was spotted by four people on two motorcycles and was looted for Rs 7.90 lakh. A case was registered for the same at Narpoli police station. “The second incident was of Manpada, where Darshan Gaikar 22 was heading to deposit cash of Rs 4.27 lakh at nationalized bank based in Dombivli. On November 2, at 1 pm, four people came on two motorcycles and robbed the cash he kept in the bag,” added Nagarkar. After the accused confess about the two crimes, the Kalyan crime branch was successful in recovering cash and valuables from the past dacoities. “In the Narpoli case, among the Rs 7.90 lakh cash, we have recovered Rs 2.78 lakh, which is inclusive of a fridge and a mobile phone. Similarly, in the Manpada case, from the Rs 4.27 lakh, we have recovered Rs 84,000 cash, a mobile and an LCD TV. They have been handed over to Manpada police station, who are further investigating the matter,” concluded Nagarkar.

Thane engineer suspended on corruption charges reinstatedThe state government has reinstated a suspended official who is being probed by the anti-corruption bureau (ACB) for over a year. Sources said he will retire in MayTNN | Feb 23, 2016, 11.06 PM ISTMumbai: The state government has reinstated a suspended official who is being probed by the anti-corruption bureau (ACB) for over a year. Sources said he will retire in May. The ACB in Pune had registered an FIR against then superintendent engineer (Thane irrigation circle), R D Shinde, under the Prevention of Corruption Act in August 2015. He was suspended in December 2014. Shinde had been charged with holding disproportionate assets worth Rs 59 lakh and multiple land holdings in Solapur district and Ratnagiri. Irrigation minister Girish Mahajan told TOI, "He was not arrested by the ACB and being suspended, he was receiving half of the salary every month. Instead of paying him for sitting at home, it will be better to reinstate him. So we reinstated him on January 18 at another place." Shinde has been reinstated as superintendent engineer with the command area developing authority, Pune. Mahajan added that the probe will continue. He said two other officials who were arrested are still under suspension.

Known as an avid reptile lover in Thane, this 20-year-old has been trying to spread awareness on the conservation of snakes and rescuing the ones caught in man–animal conflict. After having rescued 3,500 snakes, Parab recently joined an NGO, Wildlife Welfare Association, to better help these reptiles.It was human apathy and cruelty towards snakes that drove Parab to rescue them. Considered venomous, snakes when spotted are killed, even if they are non-poisonous. It was one such incident – when a mob stood by as a snake was killed in the middle of the road – that led to Parab, who then was a school-going student, to take an interest in reptiles.“I decided to study up on snakes, type of species and their habitat. I read a lot of books and by Class X I was able to differentiate snakes according to their species and types. When I was in Class XII, a friend who used to rescue snakes taught me to hold them right and help them,” added Parab.For the first time, he rescued a wolf snake which found its way into a hostel room of his college during his first year. After this, word spread and he received rescue calls.During such rescue calls, Parab would address questions regarding snakes. "Some of these questions were very innocent yet funny. People asked me 'Do you have the naagmani?', 'Where is your musical instrument to make snakes obey?' and many others. There is a need to work on eradicating these superstitions," he said.Mostly, people attack a snake in the open believing it to be venomous, though areas around Thane have only five to six venomous species. "While rescuing snakes, I started educating people about the type of snakes around the area. It is important to inform them that not all snakes pose a threat to humans," said Parab. With the help of other volunteers of Wildlife Welfare Association, Parab held presentations to increase awareness."We do have shortage of equipments in WWA but the members are a dedicated lot," Parab said about the activities of WWA that he has been a member of since June 2015. The 28-member NGO works across Mumbai, Thane and Pune rescuing animals in distress.While bringing home a snake was not much welcomed by his family, Parab struggled initially to convince his parents. "As per rules we can keep a rescued snake for 48 hours only, but when I took the first snake home my mother refused to have anything to do with it. This is when I had to convince her a lot. She would get scared when I suffered bites during rescue operations, but luckily they were all non-venomous," Parab said. After three years of seeing him rescue thousands of snakes, his parents are a proud lot today. Monday, 22 February 2016 - 7:22pm IST | Anvi Mehta | Edited by: Sree Sen

With water levels going down in the Baravi and Andhale dams, which provide water to TMC, there will be more water cuts in future. “The total area of Thane Municipal Corporation requires daily 470 MLD water. A water cut of 30 per cent has started since level has dropped in two dams,” added Khadtale. Malvi further appealed that Thanekars go for water-harvesting plants. “The Municipal Corporation had already asked residential societies to go ahead with water harvesting plants in their societies,” added Malvi.

2016-02-21Monkey dies after being doused with acid in the forest in Thane - Metro
Monkey dies after being doused with acid Jen Mills for Metro.co.ukSunday 21 Feb 2016 2:35 pm It suffered devastating injuries (Picture: RAWW) A monkey died after being doused in acid all over its face and chest. Rescuers tried to treat the poor animal, but when they finally caught it they found maggots already infesting its wounds and scabs covering its body. ‘The type of injuries the monkey had indicated that some sort of acid or chemical had been thrown on it as its chest was completely burnt,’ vet Deepa Katyal said. Croydon cat killer could be keeping victim’s heads and tails as trophies‘Moreover, since the injury was old, maggots had eaten most of the flesh. It had burns on its face and hands as well, which were completely scabbed. The animal was completely dehydrated and in a lot of agony,’ Dr Katyal told local press. It finally died yesterday after spending four agonising days in the Indian forest in Thane near Mumbai. Vets tried to help the animal (Picture:  RAWW As well as being outraged by the attack itself, animal lovers claim the monkey could have been saved if the Thane Forest Control Room had acted on advice that they would need specialist equipment earlier, DNA reported. ‘We saw fresh wounds on the monkey but since it was still extremely active and agile, it was difficult to rescue it and we immediately told the control room that we needed experts to rescue it,’ Pawan Sharma, president of Resqink Association for Wildlife Welfare, said. It was in terrible pain (Picture: RAWW) The monkey was eventually rescued when it was so badly hurt it could no longer move. Pawan Sharma said the forest department should invest in equipment to be able to rescue monkeys. ‘The human-monkey conflict is only set to increase, but no one seems to be taking this seriously at the moment,’ he said.

2016-02-20Thane: Acid attack claims life of monkey from SGNP - Mid-Day
Thane: Acid attack claims life of monkey from SGNP By Ranjeet Jadhav |Posted 20-Feb-2016 In a shocking incident, a monkey from Sanjay Gandhi National Park, which had strayed into an area outside the park boundary, was allegedly attacked with acid by an unidentified person. The incident occurred in Bhandup west and the monkey, sadly, succumbed to injuries at the Thane SPCA hospital on Saturday morning, where it was undergoing treatment. It is said that the animal was rescued on February 16. Pic credit RAWWTwo days back, the Territorial Range of Thane Forest Department was informed about this incident by the locals on their control room. They were told the monkey was causing trouble to local residents staying on the eastern periphery of the park between Bhandup and Mulund. The forest department (FD) immediately conveyed the same to Mumbai-based NGO RAWW (Resqink Association for Wildlife Welfare), after which a team of volunteers including the founder of RAWW, Pawan Sharma, reached the area to safely rescue the monkey. “There have been incidents in the past when monkeys died because of electrocution. This is what we thought when we saw the monkey (rhesus macaque) on February 16 as the burn injuries on its body were visible. We were able to rescue the monkey, and it was immediately taken to Thane SPCA for treatment. The doctors tried their level best to save the animal, but it succumbed to the injuries on Saturday morning,” informed Sharma from RAWWThe shocking incident might have taken place more than a week back as the doctors also found maggots on the injured part of the body.NGO RAWW now plans to approach the local police station and the FD, requesting authorities to investigate the matter and take strict action against those involved in the inhuman act. The Rhesus macaque (monkey) is protected under schedule-2 of the Wildlife Protection Act, 1972.

2016-02-20Thane, Kalwa to reduce by a day - Times of India
Thane, Kalwa to reduce by a dayManoj BadgeriThe Thane Municipal Corporation (TMC) has revised its water distribution plans across various parts of the city during the shutdown days | TNN | Feb 21, 2016, 12.40 AM IST THANE: The Thane Municipal Corporation (TMC) has revised its water distribution plans across various parts of the city during the shutdown days. However, the plan to reduce inconvenience on some sectors seems discriminative as residents of Mumbra and Diva will get no respite while Thane, Kalwa would continue to get uninterrupted water supply. The corporation is presently working out a supply management scheme with STEM following which the water cut to the city will be reduced by a day. Presently, Thane witnesses two days of water cuts while the rest of suburbs face three day cuts. As per the plans TMC has requested the STEM to adjust its two day water cut schedule as mandated by the irrigation department on Tuesday and Wednesday while the TMC network also faces a complete shutdown on Wednesday. Accordingly, as per the arrangement, there would be no water on Wednesdays in Thane, rest of the days, as the TMC would continue supplying from its own resources. However, the pressure is likely to be low, but will not inconvenience the residents, said civic officials. Kalwa that otherwise is scheduled for 60-hour water cuts will get a respite as the TMC supply will be made available on Thursdays.

MIDC pipeline rupture may see water crisis in Thane, Navi Mumbai and Mira-BhayenderManoj Badgeriarts of Thane, Navi Mumbai and Mira-Bhayender will not get water for a major part of Sunday following a rupture reported in the MIDC pipeline near Dombivli on Saturday evening. | TNN | Feb 20, 2016, 10.42 PM ISTTHANE: Parts of Thane, Navi Mumbai and Mira-Bhayender will not get water for a major part of Sunday following a rupture reported in the MIDC pipeline near Dombivli on Saturday evening. The rupture was reported in the 6-feet wide pipeline around 5:30 pm near the Khidkali temple after the normal supply was restored following a maintenance work. The line supplies water to Kalwa, Mumbra and Diva in TMC areas and also to stretches between Airoli and Ghansoli in Navi Mumbai in addition to Mira-Bhayender. Following the leak, the entire stretch was inundated with water within minutes forcing traffic on the Kalyan-Shil highway to come to a complete standstill. MIDC engineers rushed to the spot and managed to shut the supply from the nearby valve. The rupture will take a long time to be repaired till when the supply will also remain shut, informed a MIDC official. Meanwhile, lakhs of precious water went down the drain due to the leak just as the district is facing a cuts of around 40% due to inadequate supply in the reservoirs supplying water to the district. Already several areas of TMC are facing a water crisis with certain areas getting no water for over four days thanks to faults in the distribution network.

2016-02-20Water cut to reduce by a day in Thane, Kalwa - Times of India
Water cut to reduce by a day in Thane, KalwaManoj BadgeriThe Thane Municipal Corporation (TMC) has revised its water distribution plans across various parts of the city during the shutdown days | TNN | Feb 21, 2016, 12.46 AM IST THANE: The Thane Municipal Corporation (TMC) has revised its water distribution plans across various parts of the city during the shutdown days. However, the plan to reduce inconvenience on some sectors seems discriminative as residents of Mumbra and Diva will get no respite while Thane, Kalwa would continue to get uninterrupted water supply. The corporation is presently working out a supply management scheme with STEM following which the water cut to the city will be reduced by a day. Presently, Thane witnesses two days of water cuts while the rest of suburbs face three day cuts. As per the plans TMC has requested the STEM to adjust its two day water cut schedule as mandated by the irrigation department on Tuesday and Wednesday while the TMC network also faces a complete shutdown on Wednesday. Accordingly, as per the arrangement, there would be no water on Wednesdays in Thane, rest of the days, as the TMC would continue supplying from its own resources. However, the pressure is likely to be low, but will not inconvenience the residents, said civic officials. Kalwa that otherwise is scheduled for 60-hour water cuts will get a respite as the TMC supply will be made available on Thursdays.

2016-02-20Thane preferred area in Mhada lottery - The Asian Age
Thane preferred area in Mhada lottery Feb 21, 2016 - Mehul R. Thakkar | mumbai Share According to the Maharashtra Housing and Area Development Authority’s (Mhada) Konkan Board lottery, Thane is said to be the most preferred location for purchasing a house. The demand ratio for a single apartment in Thane is 1:442, which means 442 buyers for a single apartment, followed by 1:207 in Mira Road and 1:21 in Vengurla. Virar has received the lowest demand in the lottery this year. The demand ratio for Virar is 1:3. “The price of apartments in Virar is comparatively higher than other locations due to which we believe that Virar has got very low response. One of the reasons for the apartments in Virar being costlier than compared to a Thane and Mira Road is because the buildings in Virar were developed via turnkey basis. However, we have got applications from almost 1.34 lakh home buyers which is more than the demand made in the Mumbai Board lottery of 2015,” said Vijay Lahane, chief executive officer, Konkan Board. ‘Turnkey’ is when one pays the fees and the consultancy researches on the particular project and delivers it after completion. “Another reason for Thane having more applications than the others is because it has apartments in the Economic Weaker Segment (EWS) under which apartments measuring 250 square feet were available for Rs 5 lakh to Rs 10 lakh,” added Mr Lahane. The prices of the homes in EWS segment are from Rs 5 lakh to Rs 10 lakh depending on the area. For the Low Income Group (LIG) segment, the price of a house is Rs 22 lakh, for the Middle Income Group (MIG) segment it is Rs 40 lakh and for the High Income Group (HIG) segment the cost is Rs 28 lakh as the six apartments in this segment are constructed in Vengurla, where the prices are low. Mhada announced a lottery of 4,275 affordable homes for the Konkan region and it is scheduled on February 24. “Thane being a cosmopolitan city is naturally the preference of every other individual and also the upcoming infrastructure projects for Thane will naturally boost the public as well as the private housing market in Thane,” said Ajay Chaturvedi, real estate expert.  Share Tweet MostRead MostCommented MostEmailed Amazon launches Now app for grocery delivery in Bengaluru Leopard enters Bengaluru school, tranquilised The entire corpus of allegations stem from a loser’s plot: Oommen Chandy Bengaluru: Railway policemen ‘strip, thrash’ man for cycle ‘Ishrat part of failed India module’ The notion of nation The golden harvest No Articles Found No hurdle too big Valentine valour High-dose statin treatment can help restore sight: study 3-day Art of Living culture event under National Green Tribunal scanner PF may be withdrawn online from August: EPFO official Labour ministry seeks nod for Wage Code Bill Karnataka: In blow to CM Siddaramaiah, BJP wins 2 seats Columnists   Ultra-nationalists make light of patriotism Lawrence Liang Definitions, American poet Toni Morrison once wrote, belong to the definer not the defined.Abdicating RoleDr R.

2016-02-19Thane: Bus stop demolished to make way for sweet shop - Mid-Day
Thane: Bus stop demolished to make way for sweet shop By Faisal Tandel |Posted 4 hours A few days after this, a new bus stop turned up just a few feet away; local resident alleges the sweet shop owners did it to improve store’s visibility A few days ago, residents of a Mumbra neighbourhood woke up to find the local bus stop had been demolished and two trees had been brutally trimmed. Yesterday, a new bus stop turned up just a few feet away from the spot and only one thing had changed – it was no longer standing in front of a sweet shop. The shop belongs to the well-known chain called Ajwa Sweets, and will be launched in a week. The old bus stop was partially obscuring the soon-to-be launched sweet shop, but a few days later, it was replaced by a new bus stop just a few feet away blocking the way of a residential building. Pic/Sameer Markande One of the local residents has alleged that it was the shop owners who had the Thane Municipal Transport bus stop demolished and the trees trimmed because they were obscuring the store. He alleged that he had complained several times to the authorities but they had turned a deaf ear to him. The sweet shop is situated on the ground floor of Nausheen Plaza in Kausa and the stop used to stand right in front of it. When mid-day visited the spot, a brand new bus stop had been installed just a few feet away, where it now stands in front of an alleyway, blocking the path of residents of Nausheen Plaza residential society. Parvez Farmer (42), who has been residing in Kausa since his childhood claims that the bus stop was over three decades old and he had tried to warn the authorities about the demolition.“The bus stop was installed when Thane Municipal Transport started services in Mumbra. I had heard that a new sweet shop was going to be opened behind the bus stop and that they were going to demolish it. I complained to the municipal authorities, but they ignored me,” he said. He added, “Three days ago, the shop owners demolished the stop and also trimmed two trees at night. I tried to stop them, but they told me they had permission from the authorities. The next day, a PWD official visited the spot and told them it was illegal, but he too left without taking any action.” Farmer said he intends to file a Right to Information application for more details about the demolition. “I will ask the authorities whether the scrap from the bus stop was handed over to them or sold. I also want to know whether there was permission for the demolition work,” he added. This reporter met Faiyaz Sahibole, a relative of one of the sweet shop’s owners, as he was outside the store, supervising the work there. However, when he was asked about the demolition, he refused to comment. Repeated efforts to talk to the owners of the store did not meet any response. OfficialspeakInspite of repeated calls to Assistant Municipal Commissioner (Kausa division) Dayanand Gore, he was unavailable for comment, but NCP corporator (ward 63) Siraj Dongare confirmed said, “I am aware that someone has complained about the demolition of the bus stop. I was busy in the standing committee meeting for the last two days. I will have a look into the matter,” he said. Sandeep Malvi, Deputy Municipal Commissioner of Mumbra and PRO for Thane Municipal Corporation said, “We are preparing a new model for bus stops and installed the new bus stop on a temporary basis.”

Neglected garden raises a stink outside Thane CollegeFreny FernandesFrom a once-scenic children’s park and a popular hangout place for young and the elderly, the Thane Municipal Corporation-managed Anand Dighe Udyan in Khartan Road is presently a picture of squalor with stagnant water pools and stench turning it into a no-man’s land and a breeding ground for diseases. | TNN | Feb 19, 2016, 09.46 PM IST Thane: From a once-scenic children's park and a popular hangout place for young and the elderly, the Thane Municipal Corporation-managed Anand Dighe Udyan in Khartan Road is presently a picture of squalor with stagnant water pools and stench turning it into a no-man's land and a breeding ground for diseases. This 900sq mt garden outside Thane College, built to provide an open space for recreation is now frequented by beggars. The green grass and tiles remain camouflaged in a layer of muck. The only unbroken game, the monkey bar, is unused as its lower portion remains submerged in the drain water. Aniket Chavan, a third year senior college student, who regularly spent time at the park a few years ago said, "This was one of our hangout spots during junior college. There used to be kids playing here too. However, we don't step into the garden anymore. It not only smells like a drain, but also has a lot of rats and mosquitos." The unsanitary atmosphere here has resulted in a number of Thane College staffers falling prey to illnesses such as malaria, fever etc. The situation, which aggravates during monsoon, has affected people for over two years despite several complaints being registered with the local authorities. "We have 19 security guards who work in the cabin right next to the garden-turned-drain. Every few days some of them falls sick. Incidents of illnesses like headaches, fever and cough have become very common. Many staffers have also suffered from malaria," said Swapnil Mayekar, campus security in charge at the college. The situation resulted in a massive traffic jam on Thursday as parents of HSC students who came to drop off their wards had to stay outside the fowl smelling garden for hours. "Earlier parents would wait in the garden while their children wrote their paper. This time, however, they had to wait out on the street because of the overflowing drain. This resulted in a huge crowd outside college, which ended up causing jams," Mayekar added. Speaking about the issue, additional municipal commissioner Sunil Chavan said, "This garden and the entire are around it is a low-lying. Also, the Thane creek is nearby and there is a huge drain flowing through one side. During high tide, this water tends to overflow. I will personally visit the area and find a solution to the issue."

Volvo has signed a MoU with Thane Municipal Corporation where Volvo will check the mobility of the high-end buses in Thane keeping in mind the roads and transport facilities and will introduce hybrid buses which runs on alternate fuel- CNG and diesel.According to sources from TMC’s transport department, the electrical buses will reduce the maintenance cost and will help in reducing noise as well as air pollution in the city. "In the wake of rising pollution, these buses will do wonders and will definitely ease travelling experience. As these will run on battery or motor, it will save diesel to a great extent. However saying this, Volvo will also do mobility survey and will later decide what kind of extra transportation system will be brought into the city, "said an official from the civic body.Thane citizens have welcomed the concept of electrical buses and are also waiting for hybrid buses to take over the diesel buses. "Forty years ago, when I shifted to Thane from Prabhadevi , my relatives used to say that I am moving to nothing but wilderness. And now, Thane is getting smart with the novel initiatives. Electrical as well as hybrid buses will hopefully replace all the existing buses," said Rema Menon, a resident of Thane. Like-wise, another local, Pravin Agrawal is eagerly waiting for the buses to be deployed. "These electrical hybrid buses will run on battery or motor and will definitely decrease air and noise pollution".   Friday, 19 February 2016 - 5:22pm IST | Rupali Shinde | Edited by: Anesha George
2016-02-19Pet taxes to be hiked in Thane - Times of India
Pet taxes to be hiked in ThaneManoj BadgeriThe TMC has proposed a fivefold increase in the taxes for those who own dogs citing a rather bizarre justification that the civic conservancy workers have to put in extra efforts to clear the pet poop off roads daily. | TNN | Feb 19, 2016, 07.47 PM IST THANE: The TMC has proposed a five-fold increase in the taxes for those who own dogs citing a rather bizarre justification that the civic conservancy workers have to put in extra efforts to clear the pet poop off roads daily. As per plans, the existing license fees, refundable deposit and license booklet fees will be increased in the proposal that has been put up for approval before the general body on Saturday. While the annual license that presently costs Rs 100 will see an increase to Rs 400, the deposit for the same is proposed to be increased to Rs 2000. The license booklet will also see a ten-fold rise to Rs 100 from the present Rs 10. "The civic conservancy staff deployed on the streets has to put in extra efforts to clear the poop left behind by these pets while their owners take them out for strolls. As this waste cannot be dumped with the regular waste, they have to be disposed off separately," said a civic official. However, animal lovers from the city are shocked by this proposal and termed it unreasonable taxing on pet lovers. They have questioned the move as the TMC has hardly any facilities like vaccination centres, crematoriums or dedicated veterinarians for pets.

A departmental action has been proposed against Sachin Patil, DCP (zone I) Thane, after he allegedly assaulted Suman Rawat, a 2010 batch IAS officer of Maharashtra cadre, on September 5 last year. The incident had created ripples in the bureaucracy as Patil had assaulted her in the home of her IAS batchmate, Uday Chaudhari. The fight between Patil and Rawat had escalated to the point that senior officers and bureaucrats had to intervene. The matter died down for a bit but after Rawat married Abhishek Chandra -- a 2003 batch IAS officer of Manipur-Tripura cadre currently deputed to the Central government as Deputy Secretary, Ministry of Shipping - she filed a complaint with the home ministry asking for disciplinary action against Patil. The Maharashtra government appointed Pradnya Sarvade, chief vigilance officer of CIDCO and a 1989 batch IPS officer, as the investigating officer of the case. When Mirror contacted her, she said that she had submitted her report to the government. Patil and Rawat have a bit of history with Patil claiming that the two were in love. Patil, a divorcee, was the superintendent of Osmanabad district when Rawat got posted there as the CEO of the Zila Parishad. Patil claims that he has several photographs to prove that the two had hit it off famously. In August 2014, Patil got posted to Thane. Rawat, who had hardly put in six months in her Osmanabad posting, allegedly petitioned her superiors for a transfer to Mumbai, which was granted in September 2015; she was posted as CEO of Maharashtra State Rural Livelihoods Mission, with its offices in Navi Mumbai. After she took up her new assignment in Navi Mumbai, Rawat moved into the Thane residence of her 2010 IAS batchmate Uday Chaudhari as she had not been allotted a house. Chaudhari was living with his parents at that time. Things came to a head between Patil and Rawat in September last year when the latter allegedly told him that she was going to Dehradun for five days. However, she stayed back at Chaudhari's house and when Patil got to know of it, he stormed into the house in the afternoon and confronted Rawat. Things got out of hand when he assaulted her; Rawat's orderlies came to her aid and scuffle ensued. Senior officers then had to be called in to pacify the warring sides and news of the fight reached Mantralaya. Things cooled off for a bit but Rawat lodged a complaint after her wedding. Sources say that her husband egged her on to pursue the case against Patil. Patil, however, says that it was he who was wronged. "I had asked my superiors for an inquiry into the matter. I have so much evidence against her which I collected over the past two years and that will prove my side of the story. She was the one who abused me several times. She also sent threatening messages to my father and also abused them. She assaulted me several times and I have got all this recorded on camera. "I just remember Gandhiji's teachings that if someone does injustice to you then you should not take it lying down. Even I will not tolerate this anymore. I will also approach the judiciary as I have been wronged in this case. My mother passed away a month back and it is all due to this stress. What else can I say? This woman attempted suicide twice but no medico legal case was registered. She just wanted to harass me. I have already submitted all the proof which proves my point. Let her do what she wants to. I will fight for what is right," he told this newspaper. Rawat refused to comment on the matter.

2016-02-18Thane cops recruit 1350 transgenders as crime fighting volunteers - Times of India
Thane cops recruit 1,350 transgenders as crime fighting volunteersRam ParmarAn initiative in Mira-Bhayander aims to increase societal inclusion of the third gender by identifying and training them as Police Mitra. | Mumbai Mirror | Feb 18, 2016, 10.14 AM ISTTransgenders showing their Police Mitra IDs.An initiative in Mira-Bhayander aims to increase societal inclusion of the third gender by identifying and training them as Police Mitra. Saira Banu Shaikh, a transgender who heads the Hijra Samaj in Virar has often been mocked and insulted in her neighbourhood, but she's ready to turn the other cheek lend a helping hand. The Thane rural police is encouraging her active participation in society via a progressive initiative, wherein 1,350 transgenders who live in the twin cities of Mira and Bhayander have been designated 'Police Mitra' (Friends of the Police). Their ID cards give them the authority to help the police in fighting crime, and they've all undergone physical training as well as a medical screening to ensure they're up for the demanding job. A small function was held in Bhayander on Monday, to induct them as friends of the force. Banu Shaikh said, "After 96 transgenders were given voter ID card in March 2014, after the EC identified us as eligible voters, we have been accepted. And now with the Police Mitra card, even the Thane Police have identified our potential, and we will do our best to help." Rajesh Pradhan, Superintendent of Police (SP), Thane said that the Thane Rural police's step to take the help of the transgender community was positive. "We want to change the image of the transgender community, so this is a unique method on our part," said Pradhan. He recognises that transgenders are often regarded as a nuisance, harassing the public for money, and he says that the volunteers have been selected on the basis of their motivation and their fitness for the task at hand. Pradhan identified several ways that the 1,350 volunteers could be effectively deployed; as crowd control during large public gatherings, especially during major festival celebrations when chain snatchers and pickpockets operate; also, for traffic control at busy or dangerous intersections; as well as whistle blowers for crime. Though the campaign was okayed by the Inspector General of Police (IG) Konkan Division Prashant Burdhe in December, it took time to identify the transgender members to be enrolled as Police Mitra, Pradhan said to Mirror. One of the selection crieria is that they should be healthy, as it involves chasing criminals, and other miscreants. "We have so far identified 1,350 eunuchs to be enrolled and all of them were medically and physically screened at our Thane centre," he said. The programme is being rolled out in Mira and Bhayander as the twin cities have seen a marked increase in crime, especially in the Naya Nagar area. "If the campaign is a success, we will also take their help elsewhere in the Thane Police District," said Pradhan. The Police Mitra programme is not restricted to the third gender, it aims to gather people from all sections of society. The plan is to enroll 10,000 members in all, including one from each of the estimated 8,000 societies in the area. "With the chaddi banian gang growing, the volunteers would be of great help to catch criminals," said Pradhan. Suhas Bavche, Deputy Superintendent of Police, Mira Road said, "This is the first such attempt made by the Maharashtra Police. With their help, we could tackle crime to some extent." Hasina, another transgender enrolled in the program said, "For years, we were praying to be accepted by the society, and now our prayers have been accepted by God." POLICE MITRA DUTIES ♦ Watchdogs for petty crime, when they're out and about on the streets ♦ Whistle blowers when they're privy to information and tips from locals ♦ Crowd controllers especially during festivals such as Ganesh Chaturthi and Diwali ♦ Trackers for chain snatchers and pickpockets, other crimes targeting women ♦ Traffic controllers at busy intersections in the area RELATEDFrom around the webMore from The Times of IndiaRecommended By Colombia From Around the WebMore From The Times of IndiaRecommended By Colombia CommentsCharacters Remaining: 3000OR PROCEED WITHOUT REGISTRATIONShare on FacebookShare on TwitterSIGN IN WITHFacebookGoogleEmailRefrain from posting comments that are obscene, defamatory or inflammatory, and do not indulge in personal attacks, name calling or inciting hatred against any community.

2016-02-18Suburbs get a small pie from Thane's 2016-17 civic budget - Times of India
Suburbs get a small pie from Thane’s 2016-17 civic budgetManoj BadgeriThe development-starved belts of Kalwa-Mumbra-Diva have once again been neglected as majority of the city improvement projects lined up for execution in the 2016-17 budget are along the Thane’s GB Road. | TNN | Feb 18, 2016, 10.54 PM IST Thane: The development-starved belts of Kalwa-Mumbra-Diva have once again been neglected as majority of the city improvement projects lined up for execution in the 2016-17 budget are along the Thane's GB Road. A glance through the 2016-17 budget by civic chief Sanjeev Jaiswal reveals that apart from some road widening projects and water network boosting plans, these adjoining suburbs seem to have got nothing as the thrust of the Rs 2,549 crore civic budget clearly is towards bolstering amenities along the tail end of Thane city. The wait for around eight lakh residents of these suburbs seems to have extended as spare for some basics, there isn't anything much in store for them the following fiscal. While the lake city has around 20 road widening and development projects lined up for the next fiscal, these suburbs have had to be content with just four projects. Transport has always been a problem for Diva residents as the roads are narrow and not developed properly. Commuting problems within the city and especially crossing over to the other side seems will remain for a while as there is no mention of developing any bridge over the tracks or improving connectivity to Thane, laments an activist. The soft mobility concept that is being introduced and implemented in five stretches within Thane city also doesn't find any mention here. Likewise, five FoBs will be built along the GB road while an equally dense highway cutting through Kalwa and Mumbra haven been reportedly ignored. "Residents from the suburbs have to go to Mumbai despite having a scenic waterfront at Retibunder and Kalwa. The spots here need to be developed instead," says Mumbra residents Israar Sayyed. Basic necessities like improving drinking water facility still seems like a distant dream for many residents in these extended stretches of the lake city. Around Rs 20 crore have been allotted for improving the water distribution network at Kalwa, but the woes of those staying in Diva still requires to be addressed, complain residents. When contacted, civic commissioner Sanjeev Jaiswal said the civic budget has allocated projects around Rs 200 crore for overall development of the suburbs. "The focus and growth in the city is towards GB Road, but that doesn't mean we are overlooking the suburbs. All the development along the GB Road is being funded using private reserves while the administration has diverted revenue from its pockets towards these areas," he said.

2016-02-18Scheme to give agricultural tools on subsidy launched in Thane - Mid-Day
Scheme to give agricultural tools on subsidy launched in Thane By PTI |Posted 18-Feb-2016 Thane: Thane guardian minister Eknath Shinde has lauded district Zilla Parishad's unique scheme - Avzar Bank (tool bank) - of lending agricultural tools to Self Help Groups (SHGs) at a subsidised rate and said it should be replicated across Maharashtra. Under the scheme, run by Thane ZP, SHGs are given agricultural tools up to worth Rs 7 lakh at 90 per cent subsidy. Representational Pic The scheme was started as a pilot project in June last year and was formally launched yesterday in presence of Khadse, Kalyan MP Dr Srikant Shinde, Murbad MLA Kisan Kathore and other officials. Speaking at the function, Khadse said, "The scheme is for the benefit of farmers and has proved to be successful. It should be replicated in other districts as well." District agriculture development officer, Dr Prafulla Bansode giving details of the scheme said, tools like power tiller, mini tractor, pump-set, grass cutter, spray pump, plastic crates, paddy trimming machine, paddy sowing machine are available with the bank.

2016-02-18For Thane to move up Swachh chart, citizens need to pick up the broom - Times of India
For Thane to move up Swachh chart, citizens need to pick up the broomFreny FernandesHundreds of Thaneites—from students to teachers, activists and civic officials—came on to the streets with gloves, brooms and paint this year to not just be part of the Swachh Bharat Mission but also to do their bit for the city’s beautification. | TNN | Feb 18, 2016, 10.53 PM IST Thane: Hundreds of Thaneites—from students to teachers, activists and civic officials—came on to the streets with gloves, brooms and paint this year to not just be part of the Swachh Bharat Mission but also to do their bit for the city's beautification. However, these efforts did not help Thane clinch a place among the top 10 clean cities of the country. The city's streets are often seen strewn with plastic and paper. Heaps of discarded garbage overshadow the beauty of the Thane creek. Parsik Hills and many other places have become spots for open defecation, thanks to public toilets being in a pitiable state. This situation, which seems to have risen from citizen's wavering participation and complete dependence on the authorities coupled with lack of civic sanitation facilities can only change with the more citizen-corporation participation and change in mindset, say citizen activists. Brahmand Society's Rajesh Kumar who has led a year-long cleanliness drive said, "When we started the drive we observed that people stuck to the campaign for a day or two but went back to littering, claiming that picking up waste was the government's job." "We have placed eight bins in the area and monitor them every week to ensure that they have not been damaged and that people don't litter. Having a one-time drive is pointless. People need to be reminded that it is their city and thus their responsibility to keep it tidy," he added. Kores resident Lata Ghanshamnan who has set up a compost pit in her society and in her neighbourhood said, "Not many believed that there could be a change. However, over the year more and more people have been approaching the corporation for guidance on how to manage their waste, but this too has gone in vain." While the civic chief announced a slew of initiatives on Tuesday to bring Thane among the top ten clean cities in the country, activists believe this aim can be achieved with simple initiatives like sharing responsibility with citizen groups like ALMs. Architect and activist P K Das said, "Mumbai has had various unpleasant experiences with PPP projects as these can be shut down any time in case of the company going bankrupt, or even on losing interest in the initiative. However, if the TMC develops a rapport with citizen groups, encouraging them to take up the responsibility, this will be the first step towards a smart city. If citizens become watchdogs, every initiative has 100% chance of attaining success."

2016-02-18Thane Sena corporator, six aides get life in 2011 murder - Times of India
Thane Sena corporator, six aides get life in 2011 murderNishikant KarlikarA gangster-turned-corporator and six others were sentenced to life imprisonment by the district court on Friday in the sensational murder of another gangster Dipak Patil in 2011 near Vitawa Bridge | TNN | Feb 18, 2016, 11.24 PM IST Thane: A gangster-turned-corporator and six others were sentenced to life imprisonment by the district court on Friday in the sensational murder of another gangster Dipak Patil in 2011 near Vitawa Bridge. Additional Sessions Judge A S Bhaisare pronounced the order and the convicts were taken into custody in the open courtroom, which was packed to capacity. Rajesh alias Raja Gawari is a sitting Thane Municipal Corporation (TMC) corporator, who was elected on a Congress ticket in the 2011 civic elections. In July 2014, Gawari switched loyalties to Shiv Sena along with corporator Ravindra Phatak, who had led the defection with six others. Gawri was allegedly the mastermind in the crime. The others convicted include Atul aka Batli Deshmukh (29) Ravichand aka Raja Thakur (26), Jaideep Salvi (30), Sujit Sutar (30), Sujit aka Batrya Nyaynirgune (29) and Nitin Vaity (30). One other accused, Bunty Mishra, is still at large. Additional public prosecutor Hemlata Deshmukh examined a total of two dozen witnesses in the case. Deshmukh told the court that the deceased, Dipak Patil, was a gangster-turned-building materials supplier, who had been released from jail on parole. Patil was the prime accused in Navi Mumbai corporator Devidas Chowgule's 2007 murder case. On January 04, 2011, at 1.10pm, Patil was returning from the Thane sessions court after attending a hearing and travelling in his SUV to his Airoli residence with his aides, when the crime was committed. As his car neared the Vitawa subway, Thakur, who was driving another SUV, intercepted Patil's vehicle. Salvi and others attacked Patil's SUV and started breaking its windscreen with rods and sharp weapons. As Patil began to run for his life, Deshmukh fired a round at him, hitting his waist. As Patil collapsed, Deshmukh and Sutar fired at his head at point-blank range. The prosecution told the court that a long-pending professional enmity was the motive behind the brutal killing. They all worked for different gangs led by Sujit Sutar and Raja Gawari.Friends-turned-foes Sutar and Patil were partners in a building material supply business. All the convicts have serious criminal records, including murder.

2016-02-17Thane tickets elude Rajya Rani Express commuters - Times of India
Thane tickets elude Rajya Rani Express commutersCommuters from Nashik planning to travel by the Rajya Rani Express to Thane were denied tickets on the ground that no such halt was registered on the system.TNN | Feb 17, 2016, 11.03 AM ISTNashik: Commuters from Nashik planning to travel by the Rajya Rani Express to Thane were denied tickets on the ground that no such halt was registered on the system. The commuters, under such circumstances, have to pay for the journey all the way up to Chhatrapati Shivaji Terminus instead of Thane. The Rajya Rani Express is to start its one-minute stop at Thane on Wednesday, which has been a long-pending demand of Nashik commuters. Satish Rane, a regular commuter who too wants a stop at Thane, sought to book the tickets for the February 20 travel, but the railway reservation site popped up a message 'You have searched for trains from NK (Nashik) to TNA (Thane). But your are booking in a train between NK and CSTM (Chhatrapati Shivaji Terminus). Do you want to continue with the same train?' "This is ridiculous. One day the railways announce that the Rajya Rani Express starting from Nashik Road will terminate at Lokmanya Tilak Terminus instead of Chhatrapati Shivaji Terminus. Now it has announced the halt at Thane station, but it denies us tickets," said Rane. "We have spoken to the local member of parliament as well as the elected representatives demanding halt for the train at Thane. Now that the train will halt, but the ticket will however be charged till CSTM. It is not a big amount, but question is why are Nashikites being forced to bear this cost?" Ragini Gatkal, another resident of Nashik said. The situation is no different went ot comes to booking a return journey. Commuters cannot book tickets from Thane to Nashik but instead have to book their tickets from CSTM to Nashik. "We are unable to understand the logic behind this booking system," Ragini added. The member of parliament from Nashik, Hemant Godse, who announced the 'halt' for the train at Thane for the Nashikites was unawares of the issue. "I was told only about the halt, but not about these conditions. I was, however, informed that the temporary halt will be converted into a permanent halt within a week's time," Godse said. The Railway officials from the Bhusawal division have clarified that there were no orders about booking tickets for the train up to Thane. The bookings would either be up to Kalyan or up to CSTM. "There are no orders about issuing a booking destination - current or reservation - up to Thane for the train considering it is an operational halt. The halt has been announced keeping in mind that there could be some projects likely to be carried out in Mumbai division. This is not announced as commercial halt which means that the tickets can not be issued for the same," the senior official official from Bhusawal division said on the condition of anonymity. "But given the communications between the elected representatives and the officials we are under the impression that the halt will be declared as a commercial one within a week's time. Since the operational halt has been announced and can be executed, it is likely that the halt will be made permanent," the official added.

From a variety of exquisite parks and gardens to a newfound nesting ground for the various species of birds Thane will soon have parks across the city. "If everything goes as per the plan then the lake city will soon have a central park at Balkum, a community park at Pokhran Road 2, a Southern Park at Hiranandani Estate, a Northern Park at Brahmand, a Fountain Park on Ghodbunder Road, a Bio-Diversity Park along the creek and a Bollywood theme park at Runwal Plaza," said a civic official. These parks will to be developed with the assistance of non-corporation parties through the Public-private partnership (PPP) model or corporate social responsibility (CSR) initiatives. All these parks will have a variety of trees, nature trails, butterfly gardens, skate parks, amphitheatres, jogging tracks and many more amenities to boost recreational activities. In addition to this, the civic body has also dedicated a budget of Rs 6 crore for planting new trees in areas of Kausa, Shil, Daighar, Diva, Dattivali and Desai. Instead of chopping off the dead trees they will be beautified with colourful art. This initiative will also safeguard the homes of birds and insects living in the trees. In addition to this, Rs 20 lakh from the municipal corporation's kitty will be used for planting mangroves along the creek. The corporation has also initiated a unique artificial nesting project, wherein they will plant a variety of trees and place wooden boxes with seeds and water to attract the birds that have driven away due to the increasing concretisation. A total of Rs 1 crore will be spent on replanting the trees that have to be uprooted for infrastructural projects like widening of roads, etc. The corporation has also vowed to strictly follow geo-tagging project on all community, government and private trees to strike out the possibility of double counting.

2016-02-17Thane cops recruit 1350 transgenders as crime fighting volunteers - Mumbai Mirror
Thane cops recruit 1,350 transgenders as crime fighting volunteersBy Ram ParmarRam Parmar, Mumbai Mirror | Feb 18, 2016, 12.35 AM ISTTweetShare on Linkedin CommentsMoreGoogle BookmarksNewsvineLive BookmarksTechnoratiYahoo BookmarksBlogmarksDel.icio.usApnaCircleEmail this articlePrint this articleAReduce font sizeAIncrease font sizecommentsTweetShare MoreEmail this articlePrint this articleAReduce font sizeAIncrease font sizeURL copied to clipboardGoogle BookmarksNewsvineLive BookmarksTechnoratiYahoo BookmarksBlogmarksDel.icio.usApnaCircleMy Saved articlesAn initiative in Mira-Bhayander aims to increase societal inclusion of the third gender by identifying and training them as Police Mitra. Saira Banu Shaikh, a transgender who heads the Hijra Samaj in Virar has often been mocked and insulted in her neighbourhood, but she's ready to turn the other cheek lend a helping hand. The Thane rural police is encouraging her active participation in society via a progressive initiative, wherein 1,350 transgenders who live in the twin cities of Mira and Bhayander have been designated 'Police Mitra' (Friends of the Police). Their ID cards give them the authority to help the police in fighting crime, and they've all undergone physical training as well as a medical screening to ensure they're up for the demanding job. A small function was held in Bhayander on Monday, to induct them as friends of the force. Banu Shaikh said, "After 96 transgenders were given voter ID card in March 2014, after the EC identified us as eligible voters, we have been accepted. And now with the Police Mitra card, even the Thane Police have identified our potential, and we will do our best to help." Rajesh Pradhan, Superintendent of Police (SP), Thane said that the Thane Rural police's step to take the help of the transgender community was positive. "We want to change the image of the transgender community, so this is a unique method on our part," said Pradhan. He recognises that transgenders are often regarded as a nuisance, harassing the public for money, and he says that the volunteers have been selected on the basis of their motivation and their fitness for the task at hand. Pradhan identified several ways that the 1,350 volunteers could be effectively deployed; as crowd control during large public gatherings, especially during major festival celebrations when chain snatchers and pickpockets operate; also, for traffic control at busy or dangerous intersections; as well as whistle blowers for crime. Though the campaign was okayed by the Inspector General of Police (IG) Konkan Division Prashant Burdhe in December, it took time to identify the transgender members to be enrolled as Police Mitra, Pradhan said to Mirror. One of the selection crieria is that they should be healthy, as it involves chasing criminals, and other miscreants. "We have so far identified 1,350 eunuchs to be enrolled and all of them were medically and physically screened at our Thane centre," he said. The programme is being rolled out in Mira and Bhayander as the twin cities have seen a marked increase in crime, especially in the Naya Nagar area. "If the campaign is a success, we will also take their help elsewhere in the Thane Police District," said Pradhan. The Police Mitra programme is not restricted to the third gender, it aims to gather people from all sections of society. The plan is to enroll 10,000 members in all, including one from each of the estimated 8,000 societies in the area. "With the chaddi banian gang growing, the volunteers would be of great help to catch criminals," said Pradhan. Suhas Bavche, Deputy Superintendent of Police, Mira Road said, "This is the first such attempt made by the Maharashtra Police. With their help, we could tackle crime to some extent." Hasina, another transgender enrolled in the program said, "For years, we were praying to be accepted by the society, and now our prayers have been accepted by God." POLICE MITRA DUTIES ♦ Watchdogs for petty crime, when they're out and about on the streets ♦ Whistle blowers when they're privy to information and tips from locals ♦ Crowd controllers especially during festivals such as Ganesh Chaturthi and Diwali ♦ Trackers for chain snatchers and pickpockets, other crimes targeting women ♦ Traffic controllers at busy intersections in the area You Might Also LikeRecommended By Colombia From around the webMore from Mumbai MirrorRecommended By Colombia

Nine women will perform in the play titled "Sakhi ga Sakhi" at the event.The Prarambh Kala Academy in Thane was started in 2002 by Arundhati Bhalerao, who belongs to a small village of Wardha in Nagpur. Arundhati who has done her bachelors and masters in theatre, came to Thane to teach theatre so that people come to know that it is more than just acting. Arundhati, Director, Prarambh Kala Academy while talking about the academy said, “My parents were professors but they were into theatre as well. They used to run Kala Saurabh Arts Institute at Wardha,Nagpur where my father used to direct and act and my mother was a theatre actor. It was then that I developed taste for theatre and began acting and participating in plays in my school and colleges at Nagpur. I had never thought that I will be able to bring a change in the attitude of women. When I came to Thane, I was new to the city but had determination to do something for theatre. Then I started the acting classes for children in which my motto was to groom the children through medium of theatre. And it worked, as women who used to come to drop their children at my classes saw the difference. They asked me to do the same for them as they were shy but wanted to have their own identity. Today, I am happy and proud that many of my students who are anywhere between 30-60 years of age, are into theatre." Arundhati didn't stop with the acting classes. She also started Mahila Mohatsav (women festival) where women get to do much more than just acting like playing games, interacting with famous personalities for motivation. “We started Mahila Mohatsav around four years back and it gained momentum within no time. We have one act plays, games for women and we also call famous and successful women personalities to motivate women that brings out their confidence," she added.Manisha Acharya, 49, who now works for Pararambh Kala Academy used to be a shy but is a completely changed woman now says, "I used to drop my son to Arundhati's acting class, and I saw that my son was getting confident day by day. So, I also started attending the classes and today I compere shows of this academy and also participate in plays."   Wednesday, 17 February 2016 - 7:37pm IST | Rupali Shinde | Edited by: Samiya Latief

Rajya Rani Express to halt at Thane from tomorrowThe Central Railways on Monday announced that the Rajya Rani Express will take an 'operational halt of one minute' at Thane station in either direction from Wednesday.TNN | Feb 16, 2016, 09.31 AM ISTNashik: The Central Railways on Monday announced that the Rajya Rani Express will take an 'operational halt of one minute' at Thane station in either direction from Wednesday. The move comes following agitations and continuous demands by passengers to the railway authorities seeking a halt at the Thana railway station. "Nashikites have been demanding an operational halt for the Manmad-Chhatrapati Shivaji Terminus Rajya Rani Express at Thane since long. The railway authorities have finally yielded to our demand. Although the halt has been announced as a temporary basis, we are confident it will be made permanent," Member of Parliament from Nashik Hemant Godse said. The Central Railways on February 15 signed an order saying that the train will be halted from February 17 at Thane in both directions. The train that starts from Manmad at 5.25am reaches Nashik Road railway station at 6.15am. From Wednesday, it will arrive and halt at Thane station at 9.21am to reach the Chhatrapati Shivaji Terminus at its designated time of 10.07 am. Similarly, in the return journey, the train will start from Chhatrapati Shivaji Terminus at 6.50pm and halt at Thane station at 7.30pm. The train will arrive at Nashik Road Railway station at 10.15 pm before reaching destination at 11.25 pm. The Central Railway authorities have pointed out that there will be no changes in the timings of the train at point of origin or destination, the required time for halt will have be managed when the train is in Bhusawal division (between Manmad and Ghoti railway stations - before Igatpuri railway station). "Only Rajya Rani Express runs till Lokmanya Tilak Terminus, instead of terminating at CST Mumbai. Passengers had no chocie but to vacate the train at Kalyan, Thane," said Rajesh Fokne, the divisional railway users' consultative committee, Bhusawal division. "The train will now halt at Thane, which will help us take the Metro from Ghatkopar to the western side. It has eased our commute to work," said Ankit Rane, a resident of Nashik Road who works in Andheri, Mumbai. "Staying in Mumbai or even suburbs is not possible. Better to catch train at Devlali Railway station in the morning and reach the office in time," Ankit said.

2016-02-15This Man From Thane Donated Rs 6 Lakh He Had Saved For His Daughter's Wedding To Drought-Hit Farmers - MensXP.com
This Man From Thane Donated Rs 6 Lakh He Had Saved For His Daughter's Wedding To Drought-Hit Farmers By TNN, Monday, 15 Feb 2016 The country's commercial capital does have a heart after all. Responding to the plight of the state's distressed farmers, the Vadkes from Thane downsized their daughter's wedding and donated Rs 6 lakh to two villages in Jalna and Nanded. Besides, a railway engineer from Parel, Biman Biswas, has been donating almost 40% of his salary every month to farmers who live more than 700 km away. The Vadke family is one example of how, despite their comfortable life, people from the city are responding to the severe drought in the state. Vivek Vadke (59) a chemical engineer has set an example for others to follow, by cutting down expenses on his daughter's wedding and donating the amount to two drought-affected villages in Marathwada. This region is the most-affected area in the state, with just 8% water stocks remaining. © Reuters The family has donated to Padali village in Jalna and Dapshed village in Nanded. Vivek and his wife Vasanti have always been very active socially and connected with the Gram Vikas wing of the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh. They decided to not spend money on decorations and other unimportant things and saved Rs 6 lakh, which was then donated to two villages. The money will be used to desilt and widen rivers that run along these villages so that they are ready to accommodate more water during the monsoon. "We were quite aware of the situation in the state and did not want to spend money on things that are not too important like decorations," said Vivek. Their daughter, Jaai, a bio-informatics graduate, married Tejas, a fighter pilot on December 24 after which the sum was personally handed over to the villagers. "After visiting the villages, we realized that the best way to use the money would be to help deepen and widen the water resources in these villages to increase their capacity for the monsoon," said Vadke. © Reuters As for Biman Biswas, a senior section engineer working with the Central Railway, he has been donating almost 40% of his salary to support at least 10 farmers and their families in Marathwada. His philanthropy started out with supporting two farmers. When he realized that his donations were saving families, he increased the number of people he would reach. "All my leaves were used to travel to villages in Yavatmal and Beed. The issue of farmer suicide is beyond drought, fair prices, cultivation practices are all related," said Biswas, who is due to retire in six months and will be spending his post-retirement time to work with farmers. Biswas was very emotional while talking about his experience with the farmers and their families. He said that Rs 5,000 is all that it takes to keep a farmer from committing suicide. "It's a matter of small donations and we can save them. More and more people should start adopting families of farmers who are in need."

The marathon, which is recognised by the Athletics Federation of India, received overwhelming response with more than 11,500 runners participating. The HTHM is the second biggest marathon in Mumbai, which witnesses participation from national and international athletes. In a short span of time, it has managed to establish itself as one of the premier half marathons in India. This year the net amount collected through registrations will be utilised in building sanitation facilities in and around Thane. This year the race also encouraged runners to raise money for a particular cause through a charity raising platform. The cause that was chosen this year will focus on the drought hit farmers of Maharashtra. The net amount collected through this platform was donated to an NGO working for this cause. The total prize money was over Rs 11 lakhs, with the half marathon winner (both male and female) getting Rs 1,50,000 and senior (both male and female) getting Rs 1,00,000 each. The 10 kms winner received Rs 50,000. World-class race day arrangements ensured that the event was a success as happy participants went home with certificates and medals.

Law instructor Edward Egan (left) and philosophy professor Thane Naberhaus (right) have been reinstated at Mount St Mary's University just five days after being firedThey announced the 87-to-3 vote on Friday evening despite Newman's afternoon announcement about the reinstatement.

Outrage as New York art teacher is removed from classroom... Share this article Share Egan and Naberhaus were fired on Monday and the school's provost was demoted after a Board of Trustees investigation into the student newspaper's report that Newman had likened struggling freshman to baby rabbits that should be killed. University president Simon Newman announced the decision on Friday despite other faculty members voting overwhelmingly for his resignationEgan told the Frederick News-Post that he believed he was fired in retaliation for his role as student newspaper adviser. Newman told Naberhaus in a letter that he had violated a 'duty of loyalty' to the university, the News-Post reported.The investigation occurred after The Mountain Echo student newspaper reported January 19 that Newman told a faculty member opposed to the so-called student-retention plan, 'This is hard for you because you think of the students as cuddly bunnies, but you can't. You just have to drown the bunnies... put a Glock to their heads'.The proposal sparked major backlash among some faculty members who argued it could mean talented and potentially successful students were kicked out as it was impossible to tell who would be likely to make it based on just a few weeks performance.Egan told CBS news that it wasn't just the words Newman used that were outrageous, but his whole plan.'It not just the words, but it's the plan the words described,' Egan said. 'Weeding out students because we think they might not do well in order to make the numbers look better? That's not Mount St Mary's.'Egan said he was punished for accurate but embarrassing reporting done by students at the paper, where he is an adviser. He said he did not tell the students what to write. Staff and students at the Emmitsburg university have been in uproar since plans were unveiled to weed out struggling freshmen by offering them refunds on their tuition if they dropped out'I did not, no. Anybody on campus who knows the students knows that nobody would manipulate these students,' Egan told CBS. 'They are independent, strong, bright people.'Egan said a school sent him a letter that said he was 'not welcome to visit the university's campus' because he violated his 'duty of loyalty' to the school.Newman has apologized for his earlier comment. He said he's committed to mending his relationship with the faculty and wants to 'make a new beginning as a unified team'.Mount St. Mary's, the second-oldest Catholic university in the country, has about 2,300 students.  Read more: ​Catholic college reinstates 2 fired professors after scandal goes national - CBS News Share or comment on this article 28shares MOST WATCHED NEWS VIDEOS Previous 1 2 3 Next Shocking video shows teacher shaming first-grader in class Shocking moment teen gunman is run down by robbery victim Carrier tells 1,400 employees about move from US to Mexico Adorable little girl walks up and hugs strangers in...

2016-02-12This Thane-woman quit her job to help other women in her community earn their livelihood - I am in dna of India
This Thane-woman quit her job to help other women in her community earn their livelihood Trending News Friday, 12 February 2016 - 6:54pm IST | Anvi Mehta | Edited by: Archana Iyer Pooja Hindole with the women in her community at a gathering. Surrounded by the lush greens on all the sides, theres a road winding towards Yeoor village in the midst of Sanjay Gandhi National Park, towards Thane. Enter the village, away from the city's bustle, one can spot a few pucca houses but mostly huts. This is home to 30-year-old Pooja Hindole who despite her meagre family income and a post-graduation degree chose to let go of her job, to help the women in her community exercise their rights. Pooja spearheaded 14 self-help groups, also known as bachat ghats, and ensured that every government policy applicable to the underprivileged was made available to the women of the Yeoor village in Thane. Self-help groups: A way to bring women together Living in the Patil Pada of Yeoor village for over two decades, the first one in the hamlet of seven Padas, Pooja got married after completing her HSC. However, Pooja's desire to study led her to pursue a degree in Bachelor in Education (BEd) and later Doctor in Education (DEd) with the support of her husband. Even though I taught in a school for some time, my aim was to help other women in the village. Most of them aren't educated and work for daily wages. Moreover, most men in the family being alcoholics, the women are left to earn the bread and butter for the family, says Pooja.With a population of a few thousands, where 60-70% fall in the below poverty line section Pooja started bachat ghats in 2006 in Patil pada, to bring the women in the community together and earn a living. As years passed, she started two self-help groups in each pada amounting to a total of 14. Enabling women to exercise their rights Although the government has issued policies like the Prime Minister's Jan Dhan Yojna, the tribal sections living in this area were unaware of the same, Hindole took up the responsibility of spreading awareness of such policies and making them available for all. There are policies for women who lost their husbands and have daughters, reimbursements for women who lost their husbands in accidents, insurance policies started under the Prime Minister's many initiatives and many such schemes are there to help these women and their families. Its sad that many have no knowledge or access to these facilities, informed Hindole. She started spreading awareness on these policies, filled forms on behalf of these women and submitted them in the Thane Municipal Corporation. With the help of local corporator, Hindole is successfully organized for camps on Aadhar Card, Voters ID, Caste Certificate and other documents required. Providing livelihoods and education Now, Pooja dreams to start a centre to provide basic education for the women in the area, enabling them to apply for skill-based jobs and training. The people here have realised the importance of education and they want their kids to study. But, I want these women to learn and be able to read and write as well. I have started with asking the women to sign their names on forms instead of using thumb prints, she further said.Currently, the women in tribal groups work as house help or workers in small factories in the in the nearby areas. Hindole wishes to find better working opportunities for these women, enough for them to meet their basic requirements. I am looking for jobs like chapatti making, candle making or vegetable cleaning and cutting work which could be done at home. I hope people approach us for the same and help these women. They do not want to beg, they want to work and earn she added.

2016-02-11Thane: Cops convince boy who fled home after failing exams to return - Mid-Day
Thane: Cops convince boy who fled home after failing exams to return By Faisal Tandel |Posted 2 hours The 16-year-old junior college student from Thane had fled to Thiruvananthapuram after failing in five of six subjects The efforts of Thane Crime Branch’s child protection unit proved successful when a 16-year-old Std XI student, who had fled to Thiruvananthapuram two weeks ago after failing five subjects, returned home on Monday night. Joyal Kochik Edigula and his mother Sossama (centre) with the child protection officers who persuaded him to return Joyal Kochik Edigula, who lives in Thane’s Balkum area with his parents and is an FYJC (Science) student at Baptist High School and Junior College, had fled to the Kerala capital, which is close to their native village, on January 25. Cops identified his location by tracking his mobile phone but had trouble contacting him as he used to switch it off often. When they finally got through, they counselled him and told him that he won’t be scolded or beaten for his academic failure and asked him to return home. The child protection officers — Assistant Sub-Inspector A A Shaikh and Police Constable Ajay Farate — counselled the minor. “We counselled him to come back and take help from psychiatrists. We helped him understand that this was the first time he had failed in five subjects and he hasn’t lost the year. He can study well for the upcoming final exams and achieve good marks. We also assured him that his parents will not shout at him but encourage him,” said Farate. When he went 'missing'On January 25, Joyal left home to go to college at 1 pm as usual, but when he hadn’t come back by 9.30 pm, his parents informed the police. “He told his mother that he was going to college and would return by 7 pm, like every day. But when he got late and wasn’t reachable on his phone, his parents enquired about him in the neighbourhood and then approached the Kapurbawadi police station on January 26 to register a kidnapping case,” said Police Sub-Inspector Rajeev More, child protection unit, Thane Crime Branch. A case under Section 363 (kidnapping) of the Indian Penal Code was registered. Joyal boarded a train from Thane railway station to Thiruvananthapuram without a ticket.

Gorakhnath also gave him a clay-pot filled with ashes along with flowers and told him to keep it inside his shop so that within few days he will earn business of Rs 21 crore, the officer added. The duo also convinced him that his fate will change once they conduct three rituals in his name that will require cash and gold.

Then he registered a case with Kapurbawdi police who swung into action and arrested the accused a few days back. "Our team has gone to Rajasthan to recover the booty. They shall be back in a day or two. There is a possibility that the tantrik might have duped many such people. We are investigating that," Jadhav told TOI.

Thane: 4 cops suspended after their rifles were 'stolen' as they snoozed By Faisal Tandel |Posted 4 hours They were among the 17 SRPF cops who were responsible for guarding the weapons. Four State Reserve Police Force (SRPF) men who were found sleeping on duty in Kalyan are likely suffering sleepless nights now after they were suspended. These four are among 17 personnel who caused the SRPF great embarrassment after all their rifles were stolen from under their nose as they snoozed through their night duty at the communally sensitive Durgadi Fort. In a front-page report, mid-day had highlighted how the local police stole the rifles to teach the platoon a lesson after Senior Police Inspector Dilip Suryawanshi saw the SRPF men had fallen asleep and left the rifles unprotected in the security cabin napping SRPF, steals entire platoon's rifles, February 5. It was even more shocking that this happened just two days after the area DCP caught them napping and gave them a warning. When mid-day contacted SRPF Commandant Nisar Tamboli, he confirmed the suspension and said the four had been suspended as it was their responsibility to look after the rifles. A department inquiry was carried out by the Bazarpeth police station, which sent us a report of the negligence by our personnel. Accordingly, we took action against those found guilty, he added. All four have been sent back to the force's training centre, while the remaining men have received yet another warning to stay alert. Officials refused to reveal the names of those suspended.

Thane Naberhaus: 5 Fast Facts You Need to Know Published 2:24 am EST, February 11, 2016 Updated 8:09 am EST, February 11, 2016 Comment By Stephanie Dube Dwilson 1.1k Share Tweet Share Email Follow Adam Kauffman, a Catholic high school teacher, shared this photo of him and Thane Naberhaus as he shared his support. (Facebook) Thane Naberhaus, a tenured professor of philosophy at Mount St. Mary’s University in Maryland, was fired after openly questioning the policies of the University president, Simon Newman. Many students and professors are up in arms about the decision. Ed Egan, a law professor and school newspaper adviser, was also let go. 1. Thane Naberhaus, a Tenured Professor, Was Fired Without Severance Naberhaus’s profile on Mount St. Mary University’s website, now removed. (Mount St. Mary) Thane Naberhaus and Ed Egan were fired without severance, effective immediately, The Washington Post reported. The firing was allegedly due to their reactions to an unpopular retention policy that University President Simon Newman was proposing. They were fired without faculty review or advance notice, Inside Higher Ed reported. Naberhaus was an associate professor of philosophy. He was accused of disloyalty when he was fired, as expressed in his dismissal letter, The New York Times reported: As an employee of Mount St. Mary’s University, you owe a duty of loyalty to this university and to act in a manner consistent with the duty. However, your recent actions, in my opinion and that of others, have violated that duty and clearly justify your termination.” According to his bio, which has since been removed from the university’s website, Naberhaus has a Ph.D. from Georgetown, an M.A. from the University of Memphis, and a BA from Rice. He joined Mount St. Mary’s in 2004 as a visiting assistant professor and became a full member of the philosophy department the next year. He was also the former director of the university’s honors program, The Washington Post reported. Simon Newman: 5 Fast Facts You Need to KnowSimon Newman is president of Mount St. Mary's.

Naberhaus was a tenured professor. When asked to attend a meeting with the administration, he refused without permission to have an attorney present because his tenure is a contract, Frederick News-Post reported.

(Facebook) Naberhaus wasn’t shy about openly disagreeing with Newman’s new policies. Newman had an ambitious plan to double enrollment at the university while increasing retention by 4 to 5 percent, through removing 20 to 25 people from the freshmen class. Unfortunately, he wanted to do so by aggressively targeting freshmen who had only been at the university for a few weeks, The Washington Post Reported. This was allegedly so that the freshmen could be removed before the deadline for submitting enrollment data to the government, which might improve the school’s federal retention rate. Professors were concerned about Newman’s retention policy because it included sending out a survey that would help determine which students wouldn’t last. According to The Washington Post, the survey included troublesome questions such as whether the students felt depressed, couldn’t shake the blues, or felt that their life was a failure. The Mountain Echo, the student newspaper, reported that the survey would be presented to students as a tool to help them discover more about themselves. Students would be encouraged to answer honestly because “there are no wrong answers.” Ed Egan: 5 Fast Facts You Need to KnowEd Egan was a professor at Mount St. Mary's who was fired without a faculty review after his student newspaper wrote an article criticizing President Simon Newman's policies.

The Mountain Echo reported that Newman told professors: “This is hard for you because you think of the students as cuddly bunnies, but you can’t.  You just have to drown the bunnies…put a Glock to their heads.” Newman later apologized for using an inappropriate metaphor in what he expected was a private conversation with a faculty member, CBS News reported.  The university’s board chairman said that Newman’s quote was an unfortunate metaphor, but he supported Newman’s plans. Ultimately, the survey wasn’t used.

2016-02-10Thane civic body creates student friendly app - Times of India
Thane civic body creates student friendly appFreny FernandesWith the introduction of a new initiative wherein students will be provided with a free education mobile application and civic school teachers will be asked to participate in a new training program, the Thane civic body seems to have taken yet another step towards the concept of smart education. | TNN | Feb 10, 2016, 08.43 PM ISTTHANE: With the introduction of a new initiative wherein students will be provided with a free education mobile application and civic school teachers will be asked to participate in a new training program, the civic body seems to have taken yet another step towards the concept of smart education. The Thane Municipal Corporation, in collaboration with a private education firm, has created a student friendly mobile application called Robomate +, which will provide students with information on any subject, be it class state board syllabus, CA, CMAT or any other competitive exams. This information will be available through videos, quizzes, lessons, question papers and so on. The company, as part of its CSR initiative, has also organised an array of training programs for the civic teachers of classes V to VII. While civic officials believe this to be the next step to a smart education system here and urge more and more companies to join in as part of their CSR programs, many residents have raised questions about the success of the initiative. "While mobile phone penetration has reached corners of cities and slums, not many have smartphone, and if they do it is shared by the entire family. Considering most of the civic school students come from such backgrounds, how are they supposed to download this mobile app and use it with ease?" question a citizen activist here. "Initiative like these will have a trickledown effect and eventually reach every student in every school. Although we try to update our education facilities and infrastructure every year, CSR initiative like these will help quicken the process," stated a senior civic official. The student friendly mobile app was inaugurated at noon on Wednesday at the TMC hall.

What they do have is love for food and a passion for feeding good food.Pradnya Waghule, a journalist and Amit Samant, an ex-army officer, started this venture in Thane last year after quitting their respective professions.Pradnya worked in the media industry for a while before she realised that it was not her calling. Her love for baking began as a hobby, where she used the internet for learning to bake. "I saw videos of baking, followed recipes and food blogs to learn baking pastries, cakes and cupcakes. Everything I know of baking is because of the internet," she says. It was Pradnya who inspired and taught her friend and now partner in the patisserie - Amit Samant to bake.Amit who wanted to serve the nation had joined the army for a short service commission, and returned with a dream to have something of his own. "I served for five years with the army. After coming back to the city, I joined an e-commerce firm but wanted to so something of my own. When I started baking with Pradnya, we were doing it only for friends and family but later we thought of trying out commercially. For this, I also pursued a course in baking to fine tune and hone my techniques," says Amit.With no established stand-alone patisseries in Thane, both Pradnya and Amit initiated with an online presence in December 2014 before starting Fine Sift. They used social media for phone orders, pop-ups at various locations in Thane to distribute free samples - all to understand the demand and taste of people in Thane. "Macaroons were in a lot of demand. When the phone orders and pop-ups became a success we started Fine Sift in September 2015," adds Pradnya.When it came to quitting her job for Fine Sift, Pradnya says it was a point of now or never and the two chose to take a chance. "No background in hotel (f&b) industry and the dynamics here were different but we remained committed to our basic idea to serve good quality desserts to people. We are going well till now and hope to get known to everyone in Thane," says Amit. Wednesday, 10 February 2016 - 6:46pm IST | Anvi Mehta | Edited by: Vinaya Patil

The post-mortem of a 35-year-old woman, who died last Saturday in Thane after falling into a poorly covered ditch dug up for repairing a drain, was carried out by a former railway porter who now drives an ambulance. The shocking disregard for basic medical protocol took place early Sunday morning at the Thane Civil Hospital, when the victim's relatives were waiting to collect her body. The farce of a post-mortem was supervised was Dr Raju Kale, who had earlier refused to touch the body in the absence of a mortuary assistant. Family members on Wednesday told Mirror that the private ambulance driver, identified only as Billa, did such a shoddy job that the body was soaked in blood when it was handed back to them and a deep cut around the neck had been left entirely unstitched. Sources in the hospital said that this was Billa's second post-mortem. The first time round too he had filled in for a missing mortuary assistant. Jamila Khan fell into a ditch in Thane's Saket Road at the site of an under-repair drain. There were no barricades around the ditch and it was covered loosely with mud and pieces of wood and other rubbish. Nobody, including fire brigade personnel, were willing to venture into hole to rescue Khan. Finally, one of her nephews entered the ditch and brought the body out. But that was not the end of the family's ordeal. The doctors at the Thane Civil Hospital refused to conduct the post-mortem because there were no mortuary assistants around to help. Late in the night, as Khan's family grew restive, Billa offered to conduct the post-mortem. The hour-and-a-half procedure was overseen by Dr Raju Kale, who finally signed the papers around 4 am. In mortuaries across the country, bodies are cut by mortuary assistants, who are qualified to assist supervising doctors. They are also trained to stitch up the bodies again before releasing them for the last rites. Autopsies gain significance in accidental deaths like that of Khan. The autopsy findings play a crucial role when accidental death cases are tried in a court of law. Since Khan's family has filed a case of negligence against the contractor responsible for the ditch in which she fell, fire brigade officials, and the area's corporator, the autopsy report will comprise an important submission in the court. Dr Harish Pathak, forensic head of KEM Hospital, said no outsiders are allowed in the post-mortem room when an autopsy is underway. "As per forensic norms, only mortuary attendants can assist a doctor. In fact, even the mortuary attendants are not supposed to touch any internal organs. Their job is to cut the body and then stitch it up once the procedure is over," he said. When Mumbai Mirror spoke with Billa, he disclosed having conducted an autopsy on a 15-year-old boy a year ago. "I was in the hospital campus and called the mortuary assistant several times, but his cell phone was switched off and the victim's relatives were not willing to wait till morning. When Dr Kale sought my help, I agreed," he said. "I don't think I did anything wrong. I often saw badly mauled bodies in railway accidents when I worked as a contract porter," he added. Billa said if he had not helped, the victim's relatives would have beaten up the doctor. When Mumbai Mirror contacted Dr Kale, he refused to comment. Khan's cousin Amir Dalvi said the body was so badly stitched, it was almost falling to pieces. "When we were putting the body in the ambulance, the head almost came off," he added. Thane Civil Hospital's Civil Surgeon Dr Kempi Patil denied any knowledge of the incident. "I don't know about the mortuary attendant, but Dr Raju Kale was present when the post-mortem was conducted," he said.

2016-02-09Thane: Two corporators pass the buck after woman falls into manhole - Mid-Day
Thane: Two corporators pass the buck after woman falls into manhole By Faisal Tandel |Posted 4 hours Shiv Sena, NCP corporators both claim the area where the incident took place is not in their jurisdictions. Two days after a 35-year-old woman in Thane lost her life in a manhole after the lid collapsed, two local corporators are now attempting to pass the buck onto each other, each claiming the incident did not take place in their jurisdiction. Yesterday, this paper had reported that the Thane Nagar police had registered an FIR in the matter against the relevant authorities in the Thane Municipal Corporation (TMC), the fire brigade, the contractor handling the drain and the local corporator. 35-year-old woman drowns after manhole lid gives way in Thane Jameela Khan fell to her death after the manhole cover collapsed under her on Saturday night. It was later learnt that some drainage work was being carried out in the vicinity. The incident took place on Saturday night, as the victim Jameela Khan and her family was heading home past the Thane jail. Jameela stepped onto the manhole lid right behind the prison, and it and a large chunk of the surrounding area caved in under her. She fell 15 feet into the drain below, and was declared dead due to drowning. It was later learnt that some drainage work was being carried out in the vicinity, which may have compromised the strength of the ground and the manhole cover. (Left) Shiv Sena corporator Mahesh Wagh said the spot actually falls in NCP corporator Suhas Desai's area, but Desai denied this A senior official from the Thane Nagar police station claimed that the spot behind the jail wall comes in the jurisdiction of Shiv Sena corporator Mahesh Wagh (ward 41-A). But when mid-day approached, him, he said the spot actually fell in another corporator's area. I am aware of the incident, but the spot where it happened is in the jurisdiction of corporator Suhas Desai. My area is Uthalsar; I checked the jurisdiction in the Thane Municipal Corporation map, and found the spot doesn't fall in my jurisdiction, he said. On the other hand, NCP corporator Desai also claimed the spot doesn't come under his jurisdiction (ward 22, Shivaji Nagar in Rabodi). I am more concerned about the woman who died. She was a resident of Kranti Nagar, which is my area, but the spot where she died is not in my jurisdiction. Anyone found guilty of the negligence should face strict action, whether it is the corporator, contractor, the corporation authorities or fire brigade, he said. Corporator Desai said he had also written to Thane municipal commissioner, Sanjeev Jaiswal, to request that the victim's family receive compensation. The commissioner assured me that the corporation would give them a cheque of R1 lakh. We have also demanded that one of the family members be given a job in the corporation, he added. Family protests Yesterday, the victim's family and other local residents protested the incident outside the corporation, demanding action against negligent officials. We don't want the job or cash from the corporation. We only want the authorities, basically the commissioner, to carry out a proper investigation in the case and punish those found guilty. Due to their negligence, we lost our mother and don't want anyone else to suffer the same, said Mozzam Khan, the deceased's nephew, who had been raised by her after the death of his father. Police probe The police are themselves confused about who the local corporator is. We have written to the corporation and asked for details about the local corporator, the contractor and a detailed report about the work that was going on at the spot. A similar letter regarding the ongoing work has been sent to the Public Works Department and jail authorities, said Senior Police Inspector MV Dharmadhikari, Thane Nagar police station. TMC speak The commissioner has ordered an inquiry in the case and asked additional commissioner Ashok Kumar Rankhamb to investigate. Anyone found guilty will face action, said Sandeep Malvi, public relations officer for Thane Municipal Corporation.

2016-02-09Thane: Trapped between train and platform for half an hour, man dies - Mid-Day
Thane: Trapped between train and platform for half an hour, man dies By Faisal Tandel |Posted 09-Feb-2016 Officials rushed to extricate the man alive, using a hammer and gas torch to break the platform and even gave him oxygen, but he succumbed to his injuries A 43-year-old man met with a gruesome death after he got trapped in the gap between the platform and the footboard of the train he was on. The man fell in the gap as he tried to alight from the still moving train, and a 30-minute rescue operation was launched to extricate him alive on Monday. Also Read: Graphic Video: Woman falls into platform gap at Borivali station, dies In a 30-minute operation to rescue KV Chandran, officials had to break two of the cement sheets.  The Mira Road-resident, KV Chandran, was on a train from Thiruvananthapuram, where he had gone to drop his wife. Upon arriving in the city, Chandran was supposed to resume his duties as the operations manager at Shogan Organic Company in Andheri. According to the police, he was on a Garib Rath Express (Kochuveli-Mumbai LTT), which arrived at Thane railway station at 11:22 am. “Around 11:25 am, we received a call and a few railway officials, along with passengers and railway police, reached the spot at platform number 8 to carry out a rescue operation,” said a senior official from the station manager’s office. Read Story: Death on tracks in Mumbai: Man falls between wheels of moving train In the meanwhile, he was provided an oxygen mask to sustain him Half-hour operationThe bottom half of Chandran’s body was completely under the train and he was dragged about 50 metres before the train came to a halt. As there was very little space to manoeuvre, the officials took a hammer along to break the cement sheets on the platform. “We also called for a gas cutter, which delayed the operation slightly. We broke two cement sheets and rescued the victim. He was shifted to Thane civil hospital at 11:55 am,” said an official. However, Chandran was declared dead 20 minutes later. “He suffered severe injuries on his head and multiple injuries on his body, leading to his death,” said a police officer from the Thane GRP, which registered an accidental death report in the matter. Also Read: Caught on camera: 21-year-old dies after falling from packed rush hour local train During the investigation railway officials found one of his bags near the stairs to the Foot Over Bridge and suspect it rolled there when Chandran fell. They also suspect that he tried to get down without waiting for the train to stop because he had seen the stairs and didn’t want to walk back to them. “He had a bag on his back and a bag in his hand containing a huge jackfruit in it. We suspect he tried to get down when he saw the staircase. He may have got stuck in the gap due to the luggage. We tried our best to save him, we also provided him with an oxygen mask during the rescue operation, but nothing worked,” said another official. The Railway Police Force called Chandran’s colleague, Mangesh Hande to inform him of the incident. “We had some difficulty in contacting his relatives and there was a language barrier as well. With the help of an office boy, we informed his family of the death and his brother took a flight here,” said Mangesh. Chandran’s brother, Prabhat Karan, came from Thiruvananthapuram to claim the body and said Chandran’s wife had not been informed yet. “My brother had gone to drop her to their hometown on February 3 and he left from there on Sunday. We have not informed her about the incident and told her only that he has suffered injuries. We will take the body to Kerala by plane,” said Prabhat.

2016-02-0835-year-old woman drowns after manhole lid gives way in Thane - Mid-Day
35-year-old woman drowns after manhole lid gives way in Thane By Faisal Tandel |Posted 2 hours The police registered a case against the municipal authorities, local corporator and fire officials In a freak accident, Jameela Khan (35) lost her life after a manhole lid, and the surrounding area, caved in the moment she stood on it. The incident occurred around 9.45 pm on Saturday night, behind Thane Central Jail while Khan was on her way home after attending a religious function at Uthalsar, Thane, with her family members. The spot behind Thane jail where Jameela (Insert) met with a tragic end. Pic/Sameer Markande “I was returning home with my aunt Jameela and three cousins in our grandfather Saaed’s auto rickshaw. But one of the tyres punctured midway and we decided to walk,” said Khatija Khan. The incident Khatija said her sister sat inside the auto, while her brothers and grandfather decided to push the vehicle. “Aunt Jameela and I decided to walk alongside. She grabbed my hand on spotting a manhole on the footpath we were walking on. To ensure that the lid was intact, she first placed her right foot, followed by left. However, the moment she stood on the lid, it caved in,” said a teary-eyed Khatija. She claimed despite her screams for help, none of the passers-by rushed to their aid. What made matters worse was the absence of streetlights near the manhole, which made it impossible for them to spot Jameela. Friends indeedTwo locals — Shoeb Khan (26) and Shafiq Khan (22) — jumped into the 15-foot-deep manhole and pulled out Jameela’s body. “Around 10.30 pm, we saw a huge crowd had gathered near the jail. Upon enquiring, we discovered that a woman had fallen into the manhole. Bystanders and the fire brigade officials at the spot were doing nothing to help her,” said Shoeb. He added that he and his friend decided to take matters into their own hands upon discovering that the person who had fallen was his friend, Mozzam Khan’s aunt. “Despite protests from the firemen, we took two of their helmets and entered the manhole. We had to wade through waist-deep water before I found her body, some 20 metres away from the spot she had fallen at. I pulled her towards us with the help of a wooden stick, following which she was pulled out of the manhole,” he said. Jameela was rushed to Thane Civil Hospital around 11 pm, where she was declared dead. Drowning was ascertained as the cause of her death. “Doctors claimed though she had suffered minor injuries, she died due to drowning,” said Mozzam, Khatija’s elder brother. He, along with locals from Rabodi, protested outside the hospital, demanding an FIR against the negligent authorities. “We are two brothers and four sisters. After our father’s death, our mother left us. Aunt Jameela raised us alongside her two children. We’ve lost our mother, not aunt,” said Mozzam. A resident of Rabodi, Jameela is survived by her husband, who works abroad, and two children — Akram (11) and Noman (7). FIR registeredA case has been lodged at the Thane Nagar police station under Sections 304 (culpable homicide not amounting to murder) and 34 (common intention) of the IPC, wherein the cops have booked Thane Municipal Corporation authorities, the local corporator, contractor and fire brigade officials. “A case has been registered against authorities concerned for negligence,” said Senior Inspector M V Dharmadhikari from Thane Nagar police station. Fire department speakAshok Parab, station officer from Jawhar fire brigade unit, said, “We rushed to the spot with the Balkum unit after receiving a call about a wall collapse from the control room at 10.25 pm. The crowd that had gathered at spot refused to make way for us, which hampered the protocol. Our officials Ravi Pawar and Bhavesh Pawar, along with two locals, rescued the woman and rushed her to the hospital. We did our best. We discovered that her relatives called us an hour after the incident. The crowd gathered was so massive that we had to summon the State Reserve Police Force (SRPF) to control it.”

Last of the Chinese families in Thane feels right at home in India Trending News Monday, 08 February 2016 - 7:26pm IST | Anvi Mehta | Edited by: Vinaya Patil The only Chinese family in Thane now, the family has been practicing Dentistry for four generations now, Dr C C Yi's father being the first one. When the Sino-Indian war broke out in 1962, Doctor Chung Chiang Yi and his family from Thane did have a chance to leave the country and opt for either an asylum in Britain or return to China, but it was the love and support from the people around him that Yi decided to stay back. The only Chinese family in Thane now, the family has been practicing Dentistry for four generations now, Dr C C Yi's father being the first one. Born and brought up in then Bombay, C C Yi's grandparents migrated to India from China almost a century ago. Since then, the family has been living in the city. My father was a dentist, I too studied Dentistry in a city college. We used to live in Kalyan earlier, it was a few years ago that we moved to Thane. My son and grandson are dentists too, it is a family tradition now, says C C Yi. Eighty year old C C Yi has had his share of exciting moments in India, right from taking a girl out on a date while living in a rather conservatory family to being under surveillance of the Indian Government, he has experienced it all. Sharing his love story, Yi says, In those days, dating was a big deal even in the Chinese community in India. I took out my girlfriend on dates every Monday. In 1961, Dr C C Yi started practicing dentistry, but the war that broke out between India and China in the very next year gave him a tough time. I had my clinic in Bhiwandi and was instructed not to leave the area by the police officials. It was the love of the people around us that made us stay back even when we had the option of going back to China. Since my father's death when I was just 10, I consider myself more Indian than Chinese, adds C C Yi. Locals did not stop visiting the doctor even during the war days, in fact there were more patients visiting than before. Today, celebrating the Chinese New Year, Yi speaks of the reducing number of Chinese hubs in the city. There was a time when there were stretches of a few kilometers specifically where the Chinese inhabited the area and there were get togethers and celebrations for Chinese New Years. There was a China Town where majority of Chinese families used to live, now there is no particular neighborhood as the families have dispersed across the city. We being the last Chinese family in Thane, celebrate Chinese New Years with a family dinner the previous day and meeting other relatives in different parts of the city on the New Year's Day, he says. Yi also adds that he has been an active participant in most Indian festivals, especially Diwali. He says it is his favourite festival and he visits his Indian friends for Laxmi Pooja. We celebrate Diwali, Ganesh Chaturthi and every other festival in India. Even if there is a fight at the border, there is love amongst people of every country and race, he signs off.

2016-02-07Tragic! Woman dies after falling in pit in Thane - Mid-Day
Tragic! Woman dies after falling in pit in Thane By PTI |Posted 08-Feb-2016 Thane: In a tragic incident, a 35-year-old woman here died after falling into an open pit while she was walking home, following which police registered a case of culpable homicide not amounting to murder against Thane Municipal Corporation (TMC) officials. Jamila Anees Khan was travelling in an auto rickshaw along with her daughter and father-in-law last night. They left the vehicle when it developed a snag near a police canteen close to Kalwa bridge and started walking on the footpath near Thane jail compound. Suddenly, Jamila fell into the pit and slipped about 15-20 feet down. Picture used for representational purpose only The incident took place at around 10 PM, Thane police PRO Gajanan Kabdule said quoting an FIR filed in this regard. The firemen and police, who were immediately informed about the incident, reached the spot and pulled out the woman. They took her to a hospital where doctors declared her brought dead, he said. The woman's father-in-law later filed a complaint with police based on which an FIR was registered under sections 304 and 34 of IPC against unnamed TMC officials, contractor, firemen and a local corporator. According to the FIR, the contractor and civic officials had not taken proper precaution as regards the safety of citizens on the footpath. "The TMC and contractor had not taken any steps to display a sign on the spot where there was a trench over a nullah being constructed by the corporation, resulting in the accident," it mentioned. The complainant also alleged the firemen did not respond to the rescue call immediately. The Thane Nagar police are carrying out further probe, Kabdule said, adding no arrest has been made so far in the matter.

At least the Thane Police’s top brass thought so, for they have now begun to use the Mumbai Police’s ‘Top 20’ strategy, used earlier to fight the Mumbai underworld, to reduce the incidents of chain-snatching in the satellite town. Back in the 1990s, when the underworld had a significant presence, Mumbai Police would circulate a ‘Top 20’ list bearing the names of 20 gangsters/hitmen who were most active at that point of time and were to be arrested on a priority basis. The Thane Police has followed suit, and a list of the 20 most active chain-snatchers is now issued to police stations every month. When IPS officer Param Bir Singh took over as Thane Police Commissioner in March 2015, it was clear to him that chain snatching was the biggest challenge for crime control here. In the preceding year, there had been 976 instances of chain snatching —nearly three a day. Drawing from his experience in Mumbai, Singh then formed seven teams, one each for the five zones in the city and two teams of Crime Branch men who “gathered intelligence” about chain-snatchers. They referred to CCTV camera footage, questioned arrested chain-snatchers and used old-fashioned informer networks to find out who was currently most active in the ‘circuit’. Every month, these seven teams would meet and draw up a list of Thane’s top 20 chain-snatchers. “They did not have to be chain-snatchers who had the maximum cases against them. They were just the ones who were most active currently,” said Assistant Commissioner of Police Nagesh Lohar. The list would be circulated across departments, with rewards in store for those who managed to arrest any one named in the list. Following a monthly review, the revised list would be circulated afresh. Officers say the Top 20 lists have had a clear impact. In 2015, from January to June, 500 chain snatchings cases were registered. In the next three months, this went down to 300 cases. The first list of Top 20 chain-snatchers was drawn up in July 2015. The same month, three from the list were arrested and an additional three names added. Between July and December 2015, eighteen of Thane’s most active chain-snatchers were arrested and their names struck off the list, to be replaced by others. The early part of 2015 saw women in the satellite city in a panic as reports spread of other women reporting cases where a man zoomed past on a motorbike, hit them on the neck and snatched the chain, an officer said. He called it a “terrorising” crime for women. That sense of panic has been quelled to some extent, with habitual offenders wary of an arrest owing to the spate of arrests in the past six months. Cases of chain snatching continue to be reported in Thane, but the numbers are on the wane, investigators say. And for now, the top-20 lists continue to be circulated. mohamed.thaver@expressindia.com

'Astrologer' couple dupes woman of Rs 1.5 lakh in Thane By PTI |Posted 06-Feb-2016 Thane: A 51-year-old woman, who wanted her separated husband to return home, was allegedly duped of Rs 1.5 lakh in Thane by a couple practising astrology, on a promise that they would unite the two again, police said on Saturday. According to PSI S D Gavte of Wagle Estate police station, the victim ran a shoe shop in Ambika Nagar locality of Wagle Estate.

However, after over a year, when nothing materialised the woman demanded a refund from the duo, following which she was threatened with dire consequences, her police complaint said. Now, the absconding accused have been booked under section 420, 504, 506 rw 34 of the IPC and a hunt was on for them, police said. No arrests have been made in the case so far.

2016-02-06World class eye care in Thane - Times of India
World class eye care in Thane Manoj Badgeri | TNN | Feb 6, 2016, 12.03 PM IST Thane: Lake city residents, especially those from the low income group, could soon get free specialised eye care facility in the city. The TMC has inked a 30 year deal with renowned ophthalmic care specialists Sankara Netralaya from Chennai to set up a hi-tech eye care hospital in the lake city. The two parties signed a memorandum of understanding on Friday. Civic commissioner Sanjeev Jaiswal who was instrumental in bringing the group to the lake city says this is the first facility by the NGO in the state. The move is likely to benefit people from the weaker economic backgrounds as the corporation has ensured that four of every ten operations done at the facility will be free of cost. The centre operated by world renowned NGO has been leased a four acre amenity plot (survey 10-1) in the Dhokali area in Kolshet at a token amount of Re 1 for years. As per the plans, the NGO will set up a hospital in the first phase and will provide free treatment to 40% patients from the economically backward category. The premises will be constructed on an 8400 sq m area and will boast of all modern and hi-tech facilities. The facility is likely to be developed within three years from the bhoomi pujan date. Later stages will include setting up a centre that will impart training to doctors and eye surgeons from the area in the field of ophthalmology. The deal was inked in the presence of president, Dr S S Badrinath of Netralaya. The granting of the land parcel to the NGO had earlier drawn criticism from a select group of elected representatives who had then alleged corruption in the deal. Following criticism, Jaiswal had decided to scrap the deal but later on after seeking favourable response from residents, the plan was revived.

Thane builder suicide: Corporators may face disqualification 06 February 2016, 11:58 AM IST THANE: The administration has reportedly decided to disqualify the four corporators named by builder Suraj Parmar in his suicide note. A source said the government had recommended appropriate action against corporators Najib Mulla, Vikrant Chavan, Sudhakar Chavan and Hanumant Jagdale as per Section 13 of the BPMC Act for their reported role in the Parmar case, said an official. The state can disqualify a corporator on recommendation of the corporation, provided it is satisfied the accused is guilty of misconduct in discharge of his duty. However, experts said disqualification is a long-drawn process and requires a series of approvals. An expert said, "One has to ensure the corporator is given opportunity of showing cause why action should not be taken. Also, an approval from the general body is needed."

2016-02-06'Patient' from adjoining bed steals 2-day-old girl at Thane hospital - Mid-Day
'Patient' from adjoining bed steals 2-day-old girl at Thane hospital By Faisal Tandel |Posted 06-Feb-2016 A two-day old girl was kidnapped on Friday morning, by an unidentified woman from Indira Gandhi Memorial Hospital at Bhiwandi. The Shanti Nagar police have registered a case against the unknown woman. The kidnapping happened around 10 am, but the police found that the CCTVs installed at the hospital gate were not functioning from Thursday 2 pm to Friday 10.45 am. This has left no clues for them to trace her. Shabana and Mohammed Hamid Shaikh, the parents of the baby, suspect the unidentified woman of kidnapping their child. Mohammed Hamid Shaikh, (35), the complainant, owns a milk shop in Bhiwandi. Shaikh has two sons, a six-year-old and a three-year-old, and the baby is his first daughter. His wife Shabana (29), delivered the girl on Wednesday night and was going to be discharged on Friday morning. The kidnapping happened around 10 am. I was resting on my bed, when the woman who was on the adjoining bed, told me that a nurse had called me to sign the discharge papers. I went to meet the nurse, and my daughter was sleeping on the bed. The nurse met me on my way and told me that she would not discharge me then. So I returned within 5 minutes and found my daughter missing. I was shocked to see the woman too missing. She had been admitted and was on the bed next to mine for more than two days, said Shabana, crying as she spoke, as she had been very happy she had a girl after her boys and the family too, wished for a daughter. Shabana said she started searching for her daughter and inquired with the staff and other patients, but no one said anything. I will blame the woman for the kidnapping, as she has gone missing. I had seen her for more than two days. She claimed that her son was admitted and used to get food as other patients. When we asked the hospital staff about her, they claimed that they were unaware about her and don't have any details. When I questioned the hospital authorities, they blamed me for being careless and leaving my daughter alone, added Shabana. Dr Kemi Patil, Civil Surgeon at the hospital, did not answer calls despite repeated attempts to speak to him. Police speak R D Shinde, Senior Police Inspector, Shanti Nagar police station is investigating the case. We have taken the statement of the baby's mother who claims that the woman called herself Amina and said that her son was admitted in the ICU. She was on the adjoining bed for past two days. To get some clues when we checked the CCTV footage of the hospital, we found that it had not recorded anything since 2 pm on Thursday to 10.45 am on Friday. The monitoring system is in the main room and the watchmen switch off all the lights, due to which it was off. A team has been formed to trace the unknown woman, said Shinde.

2016-02-04Thane housing complex geo-tags its trees, conducts green audit - The Hindu
Thane housing complex geo-tags its trees, conducts green audit Satish Nandgaonkar print Setting an example for housing societies in Mumbai and its satellite suburbs, Eden Woods, one of the leafiest housing colonies in Thane's Vasant Vihar, has initiated a green audit which will include a census of its flora and fauna and geo-tagging of trees to map, preserve, and enhance its rich natural environment in a scientific way.TN Raghunatha, secretary, Federation of Eden Woods Co-operative Housing Societies, said, We are a 25-year-old complex constructed on approximately 15 to 16 acres of land. We embarked on this about a year-and-a-half ago when the need arose to prune some trees. We decided to protect the existing greenery and build further on it. The central theme of our green policy is live in the green. The residents brought in expert Dr Pramod Salaskar, who has been involved in the Powai conservation project and runs Sunita Enviro, a non-profit centre for environment promotion. It is important to know our environment, and see what can be naturally sustainable and how we can create a more dense and better managed environment. We found a qualified and capable person in Dr Salaskar, who is expected to submit his report with basic recommendations next month, Mr Kotian said. With active help from residents like Mala Biswas, who has a background in botany, Dr Salaskar and his team started the tree census in July 2015 and mapped nearly 450 trees, over 25 species of birds and butterflies. With GPS equipment, the trees were geo-tagged for their exact location inside the complex. Dr Salaskar, who carried out a similar census at the Hiranandani complexes in Powai and Manpada, Thane, said, Hardly any society does this, but I was pleasantly surprised to see highly-qualified and aware residents in Eden Woods. The complex has a mango orchard and sme trees are nearly 150 years old. Our census found varieties of mango, fishtail palm, jacaranda, custard apple, guava, jambhul, Indian cork tree, African tulip, teak, tamarind, jackfruit, banyan, neem among others. We are still compiling the data. He added that his team found over 25 species of birds including sunbirds, green bee-eaters, red-vented bulbuls, coppersmith barbets or tambat, red bulbul, wagtail, Indian robin or chirak, white-throated kingfisher or khandya, black drongo or kotwal to name a few. Birds and butterflies nest on specific trees and plants, and that's why indigenous trees need to be preserved, Dr Salaskar said. Many societies opt for exotic trees, which often damage soil quality. It is important that indigenous plants and trees are nurtured to sustain the natural food chain, said Dr Salaskar. Nearly 450 trees, over 25 speciesof birds and butterflieswere mapped

Thane forest department to hunt poachers with CCTVs By Ranjeet Jadhav |Posted 4 hours Senior forest officials can access the live footage on their mobile phones using an application; this will help them keep a tab on any illegal activity. The arrest of four poachers with a leopard skin last month had made the Mumbai and Thane forest departments suspect that illegal trade was thriving in the city. Territorial Range of Thane Forest Department is planning on installing CCTV cameras at their check posts. The move is to keep a tab on the vehicles entering the city and arrest poachers as well as smugglers. Police displaying the leopard skin seized in Thane. We plan to install CCTV cameras at six forest department check posts in Mumbai. The reason behind this step is to get real-time updates on vehicles entering and exiting the city. We would be able to keep a tab on the heavy vehicles and identify if forest produce is illegally smuggled out of the city, K P Singh, chief conservator of Thane Forest Department (Territorial), told mid-day. The department would also use the surveillance to keep an eye on the staff deployed at the checkpoints. Senior forest officials can access the live footage on their mobile phones using an application. Already two cameras have been installed at Airoli and Mulund check posts on pilot basis and the rest will be installed by March. ACF Kishor Thakre fromThane Forest Department (Territorial), said, “We have already installed cameras at two check posts and more would be installed at Vashi, Dahisar Naka, Versova (near Ghodbunder Road) and Mulund-LBS Naka. We have started monitoring the situation at the two places. I call the officers posted there and ask them for updates anytime we want. Leopard skin After the department seized a leopard skin in Dombivli and learnt that the same poachers had killed another leopard in the area in Raigad last year, the officials are on alert and are strictly monitoring the vehicles passing through check posts. This would also help senior officials check if the staff that has been deployed there is working properly or not. This might help the department track illegal activities like theft of forest produce like wood etc and poaching, said a forest official.

2016-02-03Thane environmentalists voice the need for wetland conservation on World Wetland Day on Tuesday - Times of India
Thane environmentalists voice the need for wetland conservation on World Wetland Day on Tuesday Freny Fernandes | TNN | Feb 3, 2016, 01.05 PM IST THANE: Although the awareness about the conservation of mangroves has been rampant over the years, issues surrounding wetland areas here remain are often ignored claim city environmentalists. Wetlands are areas of marsh, fen, peat land and water, where the terrestrial and aquatic systems meet. They are covered by shallow water and are life support systems for people living around as they are effective in flood-control, waste water treatment, reducing sediment, recharging of aquifers and natural habitats for variety of birds for shelter and breeding. These salt pans, marshy lands or wetlands are also used for breeding of fish and other aquatic small species. However, chunks of garbage continue to swamp these marshy lands, polluting it and thus killing any hope of survival of plant, bird and fish species that live and breed here. Waste untreated water that is released into the creek further pollutes this area. Builders find these shallow water filled marshy planes easy to reclaim, and later claim to have not destroyed any mangroves in the process. On the occasion of World Wetland Day on February 2, environmental scientists, academicians, students and green activists revived this campaign to save and spread awareness about the issue of disappearing wetlands, in a three day conference organised by the NGO in collaboration with Mumbai University. R. P. Athalye, Vice Principal of Thane's Bandodkar College and Vice President of city based environmental NGO Paryavaran Dakshata Manch, said, "We have been trying to generate awareness about the importance of the conservation of wetlands through our clean creek movement for the past 10 years. While studying the creek over the years, we found that the clay soil bed that houses a variety of fish, plant and bird species is now replaced by silt accumulated over time through garbage dumping, thus destroying the bio-diversity here. In addition to this, the untreated waste water released into the creek over time has reduced the oxygen level of the creek." After a series of presentations, street plays, short films and seminars on these issues as well as the importance of the conservation of these wetlands, the environmentalists discussed an array of solutions to salvage the hazardous situation. "One of the ways to reduce the pollution of these wetlands is to develop a systematic waste management system. For this, it is essential to bring in the participatory rural appraisal system, wherein people, both rural and urban, are made to identify and prioritize the problems in their area, and then come up with solutions for the same," said Mumbai University's Vice Chancellor Sanjay Deshmukh, during the second day of the three-day conference. "Techniques such as planting salinity tolerant species or genes of plants on the wet lands, also known as sea-water farming, can also help conserve the endangered ecological system," he added. Some environmentalists believe that the recent order of the National Green Tribunal which instructed the Union Government's environment and forest department to rethink the CRZ classification of the Kopri Wetlands is the first step towards the growth in awareness of their conservation.

2016-02-03No CT scan facility in Thane district's 2 major govt hosps - Times of India
No CT scan facility in Thane district Shrutika Sukhi | TNN | Feb 4, 2016, 01.33 AM IST THANE: The public health machinery in Thane could best be described as "sick" as the district's two biggest hospitals the state-run civil hospital and the TMC-managed Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj Hospital (CSM) are functioning without a CT scan machine for years, putting at risk lives of several accident victims. The civil hospital, which is the single-point facility for victims of rail accidents between Kopar and Thane, have been regularly expressing their inability to diagnose the extent of the injury in the absence of a scanner machine. They ask the police or those who have brought the patients to take them to JJ Hospital in Mumbai. On Tuesday, as many as five victims of rail accidents were rushed to the civil hospital. A 35-year-old artisan, Shaikh Anwar from Mumbra, who had suffered head injuries after falling from a local train, was also referred to JJ Hospital. "He was admitted around 10am at the civil hospital and after the doctors there threw up their hands we shifted him to the JJ hospital at 2pm. His condition continues to be critical and we have been told to take two CT scans in JJ hospital. This cost him a at least Rs 800,'' a relative of Anwar told TOI on Wednesday. It is learned that many of the patients are referred to private hospitals where they are charged anywhere between Rs 3,500 to Rs 15,000 for the scan. While some nurses and clerks confirmed the absence of a CT scan machine since the past three years, the civil surgeon claimed otherwise. "There is no CT scan machine since October 2015 as the one which we had got spoilt. We were supposed to get a new machine but due to some issues it hasn't happened. So, we sent the machine which we had for repair and it is supposed to arrive soon," said Dr Kempi Patil, civil surgeon of the hospital. Most of the patients face inconveniences as many of them come from a lower-middle class background. The civil hospitals' outpatient department gets around 500-700 patients daily and almost 100 are admitted, also the hospital's bed capacity (278) at times exceeds to 300 beds. At the CSM hospital there around 500 beds and everyday they get around 800 patients and 300-400 patients are admitted. "The tender for a CT scan machine is in process, so we shall soon get one at our hospital. As of now we send the patients to private hospitals for scans where the patients are given around 50% concessions," said Dr C Maitra, dean of CSM hospital.

Moto X Force First Look Video Comments Written by Mohamed Thaver | Mumbai | Published:February 3, 2016 3:16 am AT LEAST two of the four corporators charged with driving builder Suraj Parmar to commit suicide by alleging irregularities in his buildings, were themselves owners of illegal constructions, says a civic body report. This damning report, compiled by the Thane Municipal Corporation (TMC) at the insistence of the Thane Police, is part of the nearly 3042-page chargesheet filed by the Thane Police before Additional Sessions Judge V V Bambarde on Tuesday afternoon. The police have retained the charges of abetment to suicide, public servant taking gratification in respect of an official act and criminal misconduct by public servant present in the FIR. The police investigation in the case will continue and a supplementary chargesheet is likely due in the case soon. Thane-based builder Suraj Parmar had shot himself in a flat in his under-construction project on October 7 and had left behind a 13-page suicide note, in which he had mentioned names of some corporators for allegedly harassing him. He had, however, later scratched the names out saying that those people might harass his family. The letter was sent for forensic analysis, after which NCP corporators Vikrant Chavan and Najeeb Mulla, Congress corporator Hanumant Jagdale and independent corporator Sudhakar Chavan were arrested for abetting Parmar’s suicide. The chargesheet, that has statements of nearly 26 persons, is mostly based on the suicide note left behind. A forensic report that confirms the names struck off by Parmar from the suicide note as those belonging to the four arrested corporators is also attached with the chargesheet. Parmar in his suicide note had also mentioned that while he had earlier paid a bribe to the local corporators but their demands had in the recent past became exhorbitant and he could not afford to pay anymore. Since then, the corporators had started ensuring that work at several of his under construction sites was stopped, he had claimed. “Apart from the suicide note mentioning the four corporators, we have attached evidence of how the four had been harassing the builder. We have the minutes of the meetings at the Thane Municipal Corporation when these corporators would bring up the issue of the buildings owned by Parmar,” said an officer, involved in filing the chargesheet. The corporators would pressurise the administration to issue stop work notice. Besides, one of the corporators had also threatened Parmar with a complaint to the Anti-Corruption Bureau (ACB) against him. The corporator actually gave a written complaint to the ACB against Parmar, said an officer. A total of four officers and an equal number of constables worked on the chargesheet. V V Laxminarayan, the then joint police commissioner of Thane, who has now been promoted as Additional DG, guided the team. Soon after the suicide, the corporators had defended their actions stating that raising the issues of illegalities was part of their work as corporators. The police have however mentioned in the chargesheet several instances where the corporators “worked in an illegal manner” to harass Parmar, said a police officer. When they got a stop work notice from the civic body for one of Parmar’s projects, the builder approached the Bombay High Court and got the notice quashed. This decision was also challenged by the civic body in the Supreme court. “The corporators again initiated a motion for stop work notice against the builder. This was clearly illegal as the HC had already did not find merit in the stop work notice. They were clearly overreaching and going out of their way to harass the builder. We have a strong case against the four, “ said a senior officer. The corporators are currently lodged in the Anda cell in the Thane Central Prison and are likely to move for a bail application now that the chargesheet has been filed.
