2015-03-31MNS expels three corporators in Thane - Business S
MNS expels three corporators in Thane Press Trust of India | Thane March 31, 2015 Last Updated at 18:48 IST After Congress sacked two of its leaders including the city-unit president for anti-party activities during the election of co-opted members of Thane Municipal Corporation, the MNS today followed the suit and expelled three members. One of them is chairman of the standing committee Sudha Chavan, who is due to quit the office today. MNS chief Raj Thackeray had reportedly cleared the name of corporator Shailesh Patil for the membership of standing committee, but the local leaders sprang a surprise at the last minute by pushing through the candidature of Rajashri Naik. This annoyed the party leadership, sources said. State secretary of MNS Shirish Sawant today announced, within hours of election, that Thackeray had expelled the corporators Sudha Chavan, Tejaswini Chavan and Rajashri Naik from the party. A total of eight members were today elected/nominated to the standing committee: Madhukar Pawshe, Ekta Bhoir, Balaji Kakade and Anita Birje (all Shiv sena), Yougesh Jankar and Najib Mulla (NCP), Manoj Shinde (Congress) and Rajashri Naik (MNS).
2015-03-31Thane girl gets a pacemaker 20 minutes after birth
Thane girl gets a pacemaker 20 minutes after birth Malathy Iyer | TNN | Apr 1, 2015, 01.41 AM IST MUMBAI: When baby Sunita's parents were told that she might need a pacemaker in her heart soon after birth, her Thane-based parents were initially not convinced about the need for the operation so soon. "In the two years that Jupiter Hospital's pediatric heart unit has been operational, I have found foetal heart abnormality in 10 cases, but only two parents followed it through. The others just dropped out," paediatric cardiologist Dr Srinivas L said. Twenty minutes after her birth in a Thane hospital on March 5, baby Sunita literally got a refurbished heart. A permanent pacemaker, weighing 12.8gm, was fitted into her tiny 1.5kg-frame to help her heart beat normally. Sunita was born six weeks prematurely to a Thane couple who were initially not convinced that their child needed an operation right at birth. "She is the world's smallest baby to receive a permanent heart pacemaker," said pediatric heart surgeon Dr Asutosh Singh who operated on Sunita (not her real name) at Jupiter Hospital in Thane. He added that this case is possibly the second-fastest instance in the world of a neonate getting a pacemaker. In 2012, a Stanford University's doctors fitted a pacemaker in a 1.58kg baby within 15 minutes of her birth. Sunita's case highlights how better technology and health practices can save lives. Pediatric cardiologist Dr Srinivas L diagnosed the heart anomaly during a fetal scan he performed during her mother's 28th week of pregnancy. "As the heart rate was far below normal, we counselled the parents over the next few months on the possibility that their child would need a pacemaker immediately at birth," he added. The doctors were not too sure the parents would listen. "In the two years that the Jupiter Hospital's pediatric heart unit has been operational, I have found fetal heart abnormality in 10 cases, but only two parents followed it through. The others just dropped out," said Dr Srinivas. In Sunita's case, her mother had an autoimmune disease called Sjogren's Syndrome, a condition in which the body produces antibodies that damage tissues. "During pregnancy, these antibodies cross over to the fetal circulation and damage the unborn child's conduction system, causing the heart to beat slower than normal," said the doctors. READ ALSO: Micropacemaker to treat foetus with heart block At 4.57pm on March 5, Jupiter Hospital's team was in a state of readiness to transport the baby at the slightest hint of distress to the neighbouring operation theatre. "Her heart beat was 55 at birth (against 140-150 which is normal) but within a few minutes it plummeted to 27, indicating that she needed a pacemaker," said Dr Singh. Sunita's father said, "It was a difficult moment for us. She was tinier than usual and doctors wanted to operate on her, but I also realized that she was in danger." Dr Swati Gharekar, pediatric cardiologist with Fortis Hospital in Mulund, said it is great that heart problems are being picked up antenatally. "It shows a great team work," she added. Pediatric cardiac surgeon Dr Suresh Rao said, "Pacemaker operations are now routine even in newborn children. The time that it is fittedwhether in the 20th minute after birth, the next day or in the seventh year of lifeis a matter of the medical team's clinical judgement." Dr NO Bansal, who heads the cardiology department of state government-run JJ Hospital in Byculla, said, "This child would have needed a pacemaker some time in life. As it was in distress right at birth, it's good that it got a pacemaker at the right time." READ ALSO: Cost of pacemaker surgeries to go down by 5-10% As for Sunita, she was discharged on March 20. "She has been gaining weight and doctors are satisfied with her progress," said her father. Her surgeon Dr Singh said unlike other children who undergo two procedures, one to fix a temporary pacemaker and a permanent one 10 days later, Sunita directly got the latter. "This takes away the parental concern of the child undergoing two operations within a span of 10 days," he added.

2015-03-29243 Thane auto drivers fined for refusing fares &
243 Thane auto drivers fined for refusing fares & riding without documents Sanjeev Shivadekar | TNN | Mar 30, 2015, 12.00 AM IST THANE: As many as 243 auto drivers have been penalized in the past five days for not having valid documents or for refusing fare during a special drive conducted by Thane RTO and traffic police. Cops said that they, on an average, booked 48 drivers everyday. "Within Thane 154 drivers were penalized during special check conducted at day time as against 89 cases registered at night," said an RTO official. This was for the first time in the past few years that RTO and traffic police jointly conducted special check. The drive comes close on the heels of two incidentsone where two girls jumped out of a moving auto rickshaw to escape molestation bid and secondly a 24-year-old techie suffering major injuries when she jumped out of the auto while she was being kidnapped. While traffic and transport authorities claim that they are doing best to nab eraant auto drivers, citizens believe that that 48 cases a day is not good enough. "Despite the drive the cases of refusals have not decreased. This clearly indicates that auto drivers do not fear the law enforcing agency. What needed is not number of cases, but fear of law enforcing agency among the auto driver fraternity. Or else such drive will not fetch any purpose," Swapnil Patil, Thane based resident said. Meanwhile, Rashmi Karandikar, DCP traffic (Thane) has urged citizens to come forward and complain. "The department will continue to take action against those flouting the norms. But without participation of citizens the desired goal will not be achieved."
2015-03-29Maharashtra government to probe 4G tower installat
Maharashtra government to probe 4G tower installation, road digging in Thane Shares 6 SHAILENDRA PARANJPE | Sun, 29 Mar 2015-06:30am , DNA The state government will conduct an Anti Corruption Bureau inquiry into the alleged financial irregularities in the road-digging work for 4G network, and another probe by a high-level secretary committee into the installation of towers within Thane city limits. NCP MLC Niranjan Davkhare had raised the issue through a calling attention motion in the legislative council. He alleged that irregularities and corruption marked the road-digging and cable-laying work, because of which the cost rose multifold. Davkhare pointed out that the rate agreed upon, Rs72 per square metre, was raised to Rs1,500 per square metre, and the subject of the rate hike was introduced in a Thane Municipal Corporation meeting at the eleventh hour which was questionable. He said the then commissioner took the decision and informed Reliance company which was given the work of digging in connection with laying optical fibre cable for 4G connectivity. Davkhare also raised the issue of radiation from 4G towers in nearby areas. He pointed out that elected representatives had written to TMC objecting to the installation of towers, citing health-related impacts. Minister of state (urban development) Ranjit Patil said the agreements for shifting the utilities were made in conformance with the practice in the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) and said the government would take action against officials found guilty. Deputy chairman Vasant Davkhare, who was presiding over the proceedings, intervened and ordered the government to conduct an anti-corruption inquiry, saying that being a resident of the area, he knows there are financial irregularities. He said he had raised the issue through letters to the authorties more than a year back. He then ordered the government to conduct an ACB inquiry into the alleged irregularities in the rates for digging work. Patil said another inquiry into the tower installation would be held by a high-level committee headed by a secretary. He told the house that he was aware of health related impact in some of the societies in Thane and the committee would comprehensively inquire into all details by surveying all 765 mobile towers in Thane district. Patil said that for the 765 mobile towers, proposals relating to only 28 that have been submitted. He further said that 18 towers have been verified and cleared, and the rest are yet to be checked.

2015-03-29Thane rural police busted sex racket in Kashimira
Thane rural police busted sex racket in Kashimira area, arrested a woman and rescued three including a minor girl B B Nayak | TNN | Mar 29, 2015, 12.33 PM IST THANE: A sex racket was busted with the arrest of a woman from an apartment in Kashmira on Thursday night. The Thane rural police rescued three girls, including a minor. The sleuths of the anti-human trafficking wing, along with their counterparts in Kashmira, received a tip off from an NGO about the illegal activities that were going on in the apartment. The NGO told the police that the girls came from poor financial backgrounds and were being forced into prostitution. One of the police officials then contacted the woman, who was the pimp, and identified himself as Naushad Shaikh. Once the deal was struck, a team, led by senior police inspector Anil Kadam and assistant police inspector Sachin Gavas, laid a trap in the area. An official posed as a customer and met the pimp. ''Our official was paying the woman Rs 5,000 when our sleuths caught her red handed,'' said Gavas.

2015-03-29Thinking differently: 84-yr-old Thane citizen's in
Thinking differently: 84-yr-old Thane citizens invention makes reading a Comfor-Table task Freny Fernandes | TNN | Mar 30, 2015, 12.00 AM IST THANE: Instead of spending time relaxing at home or playing with his grandchildren like many of his peers, 84-year-old Sharad Nadgauda has been engrossed in inventing a unique adjustable bedside reading table called Comfor-Table. After six years of trial and error, the Thane resident has created this gadget that can benefit anyone. The height of the table can be adjusted from 32 inches to 44 inches. The compartment that holds the reading material can be adjusted to any angle as well. Nadgauda has also included a table lamp. He got this idea eight years ago when he fell ill and was advised bed rest. "I love reading. When I was in bed, holding books and papers became a hassle. I felt that there was a need for a gadget like this. I brushed aside the idea as I had no technical knowledge. But a few months later I decided to work on it and gift it to my sister who was to turn 88. I started hunting for welders and those who worked in electronic stores," Nadgauda said. He travelled to many places seeking help. "I went to welders in Thane, Igatpuri, Kolhapur, Pune, Satara, etc. I spent over Rs 5 lakh in travelling and buying the required material," Nadgauda said. After an article about this technology was posted in a magazine of an NGO for senior citizens in 2008, Nadgauda received a plethora of phone calls. "That was when I decided to get a patent for my gadget." Till he received a patent in February 2015, he had been refining the model. "I approached IIT for assistance and the government's department of science and technology in Delhi. I presented my model and cleared their interview. They suggested I collaborate with the Artificial Limbs Manufacturing Corporation (a government of India undertaking) in Kanpur. Here, they refined my model. But since their manufacturing rates were high, I collaborated with a small association in Thane," said Nadgauda, who has plans to better his creation further. "My Comfor-Table works on electricity and has a remote to adjust its height and the light switch. I am planning to make a cordless remote," he said.

CM Fadnavis orders probe into mismanagement at Thane Civil Hospital By: Press Trust of India Thane | Published:March 28, 2015 1:47 pm Maharashtra Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis has ordered an inquiry into the alleged mismanagement at Thane Civil Hospital where a 24-year-old woman from Bhiwandi died due to medical negligence this week after being left unattended for hours. Fadnavis announced the enquiry order while speaking to newsmen last night after Chaitra Navaratra Utsav. According to police, Usha Pawar, from Rohini of Kawad Gram Panchayat, was admitted to Indira Gandhi Memorial (IGM) Hospital in Bhiwandi near Thane where she delivered a child through normal procedure around 1.45 pm on March 24. However, she developed post-delivery complications and was then transferred to Thane Civil Hospital where the doctors, who attended to her after 4 pm declared her brought dead while being taken to the ICU, the police complaint by victims husband Dharmendra Vishnu Pawar said. Pawar has alleged that his wife, who was suffering from excessive bleeding, was left unattended for hours even after several pleas to doctors at the hospital. The woman kept lying in an ambulance in the Civil Hospital premises for about two hours which worsened her condition leading to her death, he further alleged. The family has also accused the hospital of hastily conducting her postmortem in the wee hours around 2 am, as against the normal practice of autopsy during day hours. Following the incident, relatives of the victim and MNS activists took to the streets the next day (March 25) and finally the body of the victim was sent to JJ Hospital for a second post-mortem. Hospital Civil Surgeon Dr Gauri Rathod and ACS Dr RI Rathod had to face the ire of agitators that day when they refused to take the womans body and demanded action againstthe errant doctors and other medical staff. In a related development, Deputy Director of Health Mumbai Division, Dr Ratna Ravkhande also carried out an independent investigation into the episode and her report has been submitted to the government, it is learnt. Earlier talking to PTI, Ravkhande had said that she was awaiting other reports like sonography of the victim, post-mortem report of JJ Hospital and the CCTV footage after which a final decision as to who was at fault can be arrived. Sr PI Dilip Borste of Thane Nagar police station said that an offence under Section 304A of the IPC had been registered against unnamed doctors of the Civil Hospital based on the complaint by the womans husband.

2015-03-28Thane: 8-hr surgery performed on kids whose mother
Thane: 8-hr surgery performed on kids whose mother slit their wrists By Sadaguru Pandit | Posted 28-Mar-2015 A domestic feud led to far more serious consequences than a broken heart for a Thane-based woman, who now faces an attempt to murder charge after she slashed her two young childrens wrists and necks with a kitchen knife, finally slitting her own wrists as well. Also read: After fight with husband, woman slits toddlers' and her wrists Doctors had to perform a marathon 8-hour surgery to save the trio, who are still in a critical condition. mid-day had reported the incident, which took place around 7 pm on Thursday, in Naupada, Thane, where 28-year-old Shalaka Paranjpe resided with her husband and son Tanmay (3) and daughter Riya (7). After a squabble with her husband, Shalaka put a kitchen knife to her childrens wrists and necks and then cut her own wrists as well (After fight with husband, woman slits toddlers and her wrists, March 27). Her husband walked into the room just as she had finished, and found the three sitting still conscious in a pool of blood. They were first rushed to a local hospital, but as their condition was serious, they were shifted to Jupiter Hospital, where doctors began surgery at 9.30 pm, finally finishing the next morning at 5.30 am. According to the specialist treating the family, Dr Parag Lad (consultant orthopaedic, hand and reconstructive microsurgeon at Jupiter Hospital), the surgeries were successful but all three patients are critical and will remain for 48 hours. The children are on ventilator support and the little boys condition is particularly serious since the cuts on his neck slightly damaged his trachea or windpipe. While the mother was not in a state to give us the actual account of the incident, the injuries sustained by all three of them were severe. We used two bottles of blood for each of them, since there was heavy blood loss. All three of them are in the ICU; the condition of the 3-year-old boy is a little more critical since he had slashes around his neck which slightly damaged his trachea. The girl too sustained neck injuries, but no vital nerve or artery was harmed, said Lad. Doctors said that recovery will take a long time, as the deep gashes on the wrists have damaged radial arteries and the median and ulnar nerves, as well as flexor tendons of all three patients. The Naupada police station, has filed a case against Shalaka under Section 307 of IPC (attempt to murder) for putting the lives of her children in danger.

The 72-inch cast iron over-the-ground water mains which transports water from the Tansa lake to Mumbai was installed more t than 100 years back. Experts were unable to definately declare if the break was due to corrosion, the age of the pipeline or any other man-made cause. The civic administration and the disaster management team rushed to the spot to evacuate the residents who were caught unawares as water flooded their homes in minutes leaving little time to bring out their belongings. One person Ashok Yadav (40), a resident of the shanties here, was sleeping and before he could make a hasty exit the water had reaced waist-deep virtuallyn drowning him in his house. He was later pulled out to safety by the residents but water had entered his lungs and he was rushed to the Thane civil hospital. ``At abour 4 pm or so I heard a loud noise and commotion in the lane. As I looked out from my house I saw water gushing on the streets and rushing into the homes in the area. The women and the elderly were seen running out with their children as some tried to bring out the TV sets, clothes and cooking vessels,'' said Anandibai, a resident of the Kisan Nagar slums. Thane guardian minister Eknath Shinde rushed to the spot and waded through waist-deep water personally asking people to come out of their homes and not to bother about their TV sets or other belongings. The rescue operations were hampered as the fire brigade personnel could not get acess into the narrow bylanes and were later found struggling to install high-powered electric motors to flush out the water from the flooded homes. Meanwhile, the BMC has announced a 20 per cent water cut in the state capital for the next two days as thousands of litres of potable water was wasted.

The pipeline burst around 2:30 pm. The civic body immediately began repair work. We had to stop supply from the Tansa main to carry out repairs. The 20% water cut has been imposed with immediate effect. We hope repairs will get completed by Sunday night and we can restore normal supply. It appears the old pipeline was damaged by wear and tear. We have sent a team of eight personnel to the spot to fix the leak, said Ramesh Bambale, hydraulic engineer, BMC. He appealed to citizens to cooperate with the BMC and use water judiciously. Nearly 15 houses collapsed and several other structures were flooded following the burst.

Nearly 18 people were admitted to various hospitals, including a woman Sonabai Dukle, who has been admitted for trauma. Guardian Minister and Thane MLA Eknath Shinde was among the first to reach the spot and took part in the rescue operation. Affected people have been provided shelters in MMRDA tenements and a few injured people have been admitted in private hospitals IT park.

Maharashtra to probe 4G tower installation, road digging in Thane SHAILENDRA PARANJPE | Fri, 27 Mar 2015-06:14am , DNA The state government will conduct an Anti Corruption Bureau inquiry into the alleged financial irregularities in the road-digging work for 4G network, and another probe by a high-level secretary committee into the installation of towers within Thane city limits. NCP MLC Niranjan Davkhare had raised the issue through a calling attention motion in the legislative council. He alleged that irregularities and corruption marked the road-digging and cable-laying work, because of which the cost rose multifold. Davkhare pointed out that the rate agreed upon, Rs72 per square metre, was raised to Rs1,500 per square metre, and the subject of the rate hike was introduced in a Thane Municipal Corporation meeting at the eleventh hour which was questionable. He said the then commissioner took the decision and informed Reliance company which was given the work of digging in connection with laying optical fibre cable for 4G connectivity. Davkhare also raised the issue of radiation from 4G towers in nearby areas. He pointed out that elected representatives had written to TMC objecting to the installation of towers, citing health-related impacts. Minister of state (urban development) Ranjit Patil said the agreements for shifting the utilities were made in conformance with the practice in the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) and said the government would take action against officials found guilty. Deputy chairman Vasant Davkhare, who was presiding over the proceedings, intervened and ordered the government to conduct an anti-corruption inquiry, saying that being a resident of the area, he knows there are financial irregularities. He said he had raised the issue through letters to the authorties more than a year back. He then ordered the government to conduct an ACB inquiry into the alleged irregularities in the rates for digging work. Patil said another inquiry into the tower installation would be held by a high-level committee headed by a secretary. He told the house that he was aware of health related impact in some of the societies in Thane and the committee would comprehensively inquire into all details by surveying all 765 mobile towers in Thane district. Patil said that for the 765 mobile towers, proposals relating to only 28 that have been submitted. He further said that 18 towers have been verified and cleared, and the rest are yet to be checked.
2015-03-27Thane doctors develop app to monitor heart conditi
Thane doctors develop app to monitor heart condition at any given time Mar, 27 2015 16:03:49 IST Thane: A team of doctors here have developed a mobile application through which the health status of heart could be monitored at any time of the day by calculating the risks and giving recommendations on how to avert heart conditions in future. The mobile application, named 'Heart Health Meter' (HHM App), was launched at a function here last evening by a team of doctors and IT experts from Madhavbaug - organisation of multidisciplinary cardiac care clinics and hospitals - on its 50th anniversary. Explaining the modalities of the app, Rohit Sane, trustee and MD of Vaidya Sane Trust (the parent organisation of Madhavbaug), said through 'HHM App' one can know the current health status of his heart. "With increasing age, conditions like diabetes, excess weight, smoking, high blood pressure and high cholesterol levels damage our blood vessels and the heart, increasing our risk of getting a heart attack," he said. The 'Heart Health Meter' calculates this risk and also gives you recommendations and tips on how to reduce or manage the risk, he said. "Taking treatment early for these risk factors reduces chances of developing a major heart condition and getting a heart attack. The HHM can be downloaded and heart health calculated easily with it," Sane said. The app was released in the presence of Thane Mayor Sanjay More, Shiv Sena MPs Rajan Vichare (Thane) and Shrikant Shinde (Kalyan), Kuldip Rai Kohli, Director, Department of AYUSH, Maharashtra, and medical experts. The app, currently available free of cost on Google Playstore running on Android Operating System, was developed by the experts after extensive study, researches and taking inputs from various doctors, patients and medical consultants, and has been successfully tested on the hospital's web portal. "Our aim was to make this utility available to masses. The app was developed keeping in mind that nowadays mobile technology is becoming the most popular, powerful and suitable medium to reach people," Sane said. The app would soon be made available on Windows and IOS Platforms as well, he said. This will help in raising awareness among people about the heart diseases, as knowing your heart's health is the first step towards taking care of this vital body organ, Sane added. Madhavbaug is an ISO certified private cardiac rehab centre (hospital), having branches across Maharashtra, that treats heart disease using Ayurveda.

Maharashtra: Oppn demands answers on illegal land deal in Thane MUMBAI Updated: Mar 27, 2015 22:21 IST The opposition on Friday cornered the Maharashtra government, accusing it of shielding a heavy-weight builder who had allegedly illegally acquired land from a farmer in Thane for two high rises. When the question about forgery and misappropriation in a land deal in Majiwade, Thane for two high rises came up, speaker Haribhau Bagde told the house it cannot debate the matter, as it was sub judice. Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) leaders Ajit Pawar and Jayant Patil objected to this and demanded the government comes clean, as the issue questioned the credibility of the house. Patil said the developer had constructed the high rises on land fraudulently taken by imposing the thumb impression of a farmer who had died years ago. He alleged the police and revenue officers were working with the builder, which is why he has not been named in the FIR. Patil claimed the documents related to the land were forged. When the opposition objected to the speakers stand of not discussing the matter, revenue minister Eknath Khadse said he did not have details, including the name of the developer or the people against whom the case was registered, but promised to table the information in the house in due time. Ajit Pawar demanded the developers name is revealed, and asked for the question to be withheld until the government got the additional information.

2015-03-26Divide & rule plan on cards for Thane cops - Times
Divide & rule plan on cards for Thane cops Nishikant Karlikar | TNN | Mar 26, 2015, 11.33 AM IST THANE: Police commissioner Parambir Singh is said to be giving a final push to the long-pending proposal to split the Thane commissionerate by appointing two additional commissioner-rank officials for Bhiwandi and Kalyan. Plans have also been drawn up to carve out two more zones to be headed by an official of the rank of deputy police commissioner, besides introducing new police stations. Thane has seen a massive rise in population in the last decade resulting in a proportionate increase in incidents of crime. However, the police strength has not multiplied at the same pace, which has not only resulted in poor detection of crime. A senior police officer said the jurisdiction of Thane police is peculiar geographically. In certain parts there is an amalgamation of rural and cosmopolitan culture. Now, even many hilly areas Wagle Estate, Kalwa, Mumbra, Kalyan, Dombivli, Bhivandi and Ulhasnagar have been captured by the migrant population. At present, Thane has five zones Kalwa-Mumbra, Bhiwandi, Kalyan-Dombivli, Ulhasnagar and Wagle Estate. A senior police officer said, "We have sent a proposal with the requirement of 10-15 more new police stations to be added within the police commissionerate. Two additional zones will be carved out at Wagle Estate and Bhiwandi. Two new posts of deputy commissioner of police will also be added." The proposal further added that there was a dire need of at least two more additional commissioners of police (crime) to tackle crime separately in the Bhiwandi and Kalyan-Dombivli zone. "Now, there is one post each of additional commissioner of police (crime) and administration. If there are separate officers, then it will be easy to keep a check on the growing crime rate," said a police officer. There is a dire need of decentralization of even the police headquarters as presently the staff is reeling under tremendous pressure. As a result, the police have even devised a plan to add two more mini-headquarters in Kalyan and Bhiwandi. A consolidated proposal has also been sent to the state government in which the Thane police have asked for an additional manpower of nearly 6,000 to 8,000 across various rankings.

The deputy chairman of the legislative council, who was in the chair on Thursday, instructed the state government to initiate the inquiry into the grant of permission by the Thane Municipal Corporation (TMC) to Reliance Jio Infocomm to dig trenches for its network. After several objections that Rs 72 per sq m was too low, the rate was increased to Rs 1,500 per sq m. The issue came up with a calling attention motion by NCP MLC Niranjan Davkhare. MoS urban development Dr Ranjeet Patil replied to it. Davkhare said the TMC had granted permission with the rate fixed at Rs 72 per sq m in February 2013 and increased it to Rs 1,500 per sq m this February. "On what basis was Rs 72 per sq m finalized and then increased to Rs 1,500?" Davkhare said. "The state should initiate an ACB probe." In reply, Patil said that the earlier rate had been finalized by the TMC general body. Deputy chairman of the council Vasant Davkhare expressed dissatisfaction over the reply and instructed the government to initiate an ACB inquiry. Patil also said that the government would form a committee headed by an officer of the level of secretary or deputy secretary to go into matters of mobile networks and towers and their radiation risks.

State government steps in Following furore over the case, state health minister Dr Deepak Sawant said, We will conduct an inquiry in the case and the guilty will be punished. Dilip Burasate, senior inspector of the Thane police station assured that a complaint had been filed and the case will be investigated. Hospital denies negligence charge Facing allegations of negligence, authorities at the Civil Hospital denied allegations made by the family members of Pawar. Raghavendra Rathod, medical superintendent of the hospital said, What the family members are saying is false. We are conducting an inquiry. Two medical officers Dr Siddartha Shah and Dr Sangeeta Jadhav were present when the woman was brought in. We know that our doctors are not at fault but if they are found guilty then we will take action against them." Post-mortem done without family's consent Dharmendra has also alleged that the post mortem was carried out without informing him. He said, We had gone to the Thane police station and by the time we returned we were told that the post-mortem was over. This was very shocking. The family alleges that this was an attempt by the hospital to hide their fault. Dean of JJ hospital Dr Tatyasaheb Lahane informed that Civil Hospitals cannot carry out the post-mortem during the night. Even if they have been directed to do so, they first need the consent of the deceaseds family as well as the police. Pawars mother-in-law Kusum, battling a flood of tears said, They were married in May last year. I do not have the courage to fight as I now have to look after a new born baby. Pawar delivered a baby boy on Tuesday afternoon at the Indira Gandhi Hospital in Bhiwandi. She was bleeding profusely due to a complication during delivery and was referred to the Thane Civil Hospital. When she was brought to the hospital the was left unattended for over an hour during which she bled to death.

2015-03-24U Soe Thane urges the long-term view - Myanmar Tim
U Soe Thane urges the long-term view By Jeremy Mullins | Tuesday, 24 March 2015The economic improvements to the country since the 2011 transition to civilian government are obvious, but reforms must be continued by subsequent governments, according to Coordinating Minister for Economic Development and Minister for the Presidents Office U Soe Thane. Although the current course struck by the government has generated improvements in certain areas, progress has been slow in others, he said during a keynote speech at yesterdays ASEAN-Myanmar Forum, organised by the Singapore Institute of International Affairs. If we look from the optimistic point of view, we can definitely witness the positive improvement in the general condition of our people, he said. However, there still remains a lot of hot issues drawing our attention. U Soe Thane said many of the improvements are easy to spot. He pointed to the large and growing number of tall new buildings that had taken root in Yangon over the past decade as well as the increase in international products on the street as evidence Myanmars transition is moving in the right direction. Everyone is complaining about the traffic jam in almost all of the citys streets at all times of the day. Why? One main reason is because the number of private vehicles has skyrocked in the past four or five years, he said. Look at the smartphones in the hands of the public. Every other person has his own mobile. Some have even three or four [because of] the not so perfect connections throughout the country It is very common to see workers at the construction site playing with the smartphone during their short rest time. In the countryside, roads and electrification is improving, while there are over 50 newspapers and journals for people to choose from, he said. However, U Soe Thane acknowledged not all the improvements are coming as quickly as many would like. He added that often expectations are too high, while there is often a capacity gap, not only for the government but for all segments of society. He said it is important that the succeeding government must continue the march toward a democratic society. Our government has successfully laid down the necessary foundation The next, next governments have to take up and march forward, he said. From one government to another, the march to democracy has to go on by all means. It is very rare that a nation can transform into a democratic one during the tenure of one government. It is indeed a very complicated process and usually takes three or four governments to really capture the democratic goal, he said. U Soe Thane also said that for economic reform, there must be more focus on private-sector development. He pointed to businesses and businesspeople such as U Sein Maung from First Private Bank, Kanbawza, and prominent entrepreneur Serge Pun as leading examples of enterprise that is only now taking off. Businesspeople are not satisfied yet, but he said that the economic progress is gradually moving forward. Inch by inch, foot by foot, we have to move. We have to try our best, he said. Every government [transitioning] from the military to democracy has the same problems. In a follow-up interview, the minister discussed US investment into the country, which some say has been underwhelming. U Soe Thane said it is now better than the past three to five years, adding that the amount is not important, but the fact that any at all is coming is a positive sign, as there is a political angle. He added that there is growth in exports to other markets like China, India and Europe. U Soe Thane also discussed the garment industry, which has been affected by recent strikes. He claimed employee capacity is currently low, so workers must not reach too high with their demands. The workers want to get salary at the level of ASEAN standard, but their skill is low, he said. U Soe Thane gave an example where Thai workers may produce 10 shirts a day, but in Myanmar workers produce much less. We have a lack of skilled workers We need more awareness from the people, he said. If the owners are able to generate more income, than workers will receive higher salaries, but if demands are too high, then factories will close and head elsewhere. We need time, he said.
2015-03-24Young mother dies in Thane after 'waiting an hour
YOUNG MOTHER DIES IN THANE AFTER WAITING AN HOUR FOR HOSPITAL TROLLEY By Lata Mishra, Mumbai Mirror | Updated: Mar 25, 2015, 10.16 AM IST A 23-year-old woman, who was suffering from post-delivery complications, died outside Thane Civil Hospital on Tuesday afternoon after waiting for nearly an hour for the staff to wheel her in, her husband said. The staff apparently cited a shortage of trolleys to keep Usha Pawar waiting in an ambulance. The state-run hospital, however, denied that there had been a delay in admitting her and said doctors attended to her promptly. Usha, from a small village outside Bhiwandi, gave birth to her first child at Indira Gandhi Memorial Hospital in Bhiwandi at 1.30 pm on Tuesday. The baby boy was healthy, but doctors could not stop Usha from bleeding, a condition described as postpartum haemorrhage. Doctors told Usha's husband, Dharmendra, that she would have to be shifted to Thane Civil Hospital. Usha was taken there in an ambulance at 3.30 pm, but the staff at the new facility did not immediately wheel her in. A ward boy allegedly told Dharmendra that the hospital did not have enough trolleys and the two available ones were being used to transfer accident victims. By the time Usha was finally admitted, she had died. This is the second incident in the past three weeks where the alleged indifference of the staff at public hospitals has claimed the life of either the mother or the newborn. On March 11, a pregnant woman was driven out of a Kalwa municipal hospital as she couldn't pay Rs 800 for blood tests, and had to deliver her child on a street. The prematurely born boy died a few hours later as his poor parents, Sharada and Gangaram Ghode, desperately waited outside the Mantralaya to seek help from legislators for hospital admission. An inquiry against the hospital is under way. Dharmendra, a labourer from Annagao village, said that he and Usha were thrilled about their first child. "But we never imagined that this would happen. No one cares for the poor," he said. According to Dharmendra, a severely bleeding Usha needed urgent admission in the intensive care unit. "We reached Thane Civil Hospital in an ambulance around 3.30 pm. The ambulance driver and I both requested the hospital staff to admit her. A ward boy, however, told me that we would have to wait as no trolleys were available," he claimed. "I told the staff that my wife was dying and begged them to take her in, but no one was bothered. The doctors were busy attending to an accident case." The ambulance driver, Sameer Sheikh, said that he, too, requested the staff to attend to Usha. "The ward boy told me that three trolleys were not working and the two others were engaged," he said. Usha was finally wheeled in around 4.30 pm. "There was a delay in starting her treatment and she was declared dead in the casualty ward," Dharmendra said. The medical Superintend of the Bhiwandi hospital said Usha was referred to the facility by a primary health centre in Annagao. "After the delivery, both the mother and the baby were stable. But 30 minutes later, she developed complications. We tried our best to stop the bleeding. We finally decided to shift her to the Thane Hospital," the official said. Varsha Rathod, civil surgeon of Thane Civil Hospital, rejected the allegations that there was a shortage of trolleys at the facility and there had been a delay in treating Usha. "These are baseless allegations. We have enough trolleys, and we provided one to the patient immediately," Rathod said. "But since it's a maternal death, we have begun an inquiry."

The two have turned drivers who pick up and drop children to BSM secondary school and junior college in Naupada, a job that few women took up so far.Pratibha Suryavanshi, a resident of Thane’s Dnyaneshwar Nagar was the first one to take up the profession. Fondly called ‘kaaki’ by the children whom she ferries, she says her profession gives her peace. Suryavanshi adds, “I am not very well educated. I was looking for a job that would allow me to spend time with my family along with providing financial support. I decided to join a motor training school and learnt to drive, following which I brought a second hand car.”Changing mindsetsShe says that the school authorities were initially not very confident about her driving skills. “My brother-in-law accompanied me for the first six months to give me moral support,”Suryavanshi explained.Taking inspiration from her is none other than her sister Lalita and brother-in-law Ramesh Suryavanshi. Lalita says, “After watching my sister, I was also motivated to learn driving and enter the profession.” Ramesh adds, “I was a carpenter but was advised to change my profession following a surgery.”Taking up challengesVaishali Renose, who has been driving for three years now narrates her experience. “I used to drop my children to school on a two-wheeler. I thought about driving a four-wheeler and dropping other students to school as well. I went ahead, learnt driving and purchased a four-wheeler vehicle.” While at first she drove only two children, now she ferries many more.Both women agree that the job provides them satisfaction and they miss the students during their summer vacation. Inspiring othersYashwant Wani, coordinator at BSM school said, “They are an inspiration to others. I understand that driving when there is so much traffic is a challenging task but they manage well.”Snehal Khamkar, 35, one of the parents says, “They watch over all the children that they ferry like their own kids. I am free from worry when my children are with them.” Tuesday, 24 March 2015 - 5:11pm IST | Simran Manyar | Edited by: Disha Shetty

2015-03-23Thane police in soup after fleeing suspect drowns
THANE POLICE IN SOUP AFTER FLEEING SUSPECT DROWNS DURING COVERT COMBING OPERATIONS By Nazia Sayed, Mumbai Mirror | Updated: Mar 23, 2015, 08.22 AM IST A massive combing operation to weed out history-sheeters from the Ambivali area has landed the Thane police in a soup following the death of one of the suspects. Last Wednesday, a team of 400 policemen in plainclothes descended on the Kalyan locality and started combing the area for known chainsnatchers and conmen who cheated people posing as cops. As the suspects tried to escape, some of them jumped into a nearby river. On Saturday, the body of one of them - Haider Jaani - was fished out. His family is now blaming the police for his death, claiming he had no criminal record. The police, however, said Jaani was wanted for crimes in Gulbarga and that he had taken shelter in Ambivali to evade arrest. The newly appointed Thane Police Commissioner Parambir Singh said several men jumped into the river during their raid and the police even managed to save quite a few of them. "We had conducted a joint operation involving both the Thane city and rural police," Singh told Mirror. "A few people jumped into a nearby river to evade arrest. Our men saved many of these, but one of them drowned." Jaani's family, however, said there were injury and burn marks on his body. "When Haider's body was fished out, it was half-burned with wounds all over. We are not going to let the police get away easily. We will take them to court," said Feroz Irani, Hiader's relative. Singh rubbished the allegations, saying they are false and baseless. "The post mortem report clearly says the death was due to drowning and there are no injury marks on the body. The Kalyan police have registered a case of accidental death and investigations are on," he said. Sources added Jaani's mother is wanted in MCOCA cases for organised crime. Ambivali is home to the Baluchi community, considered to be the most ancient Iranians who migrated to the subcontinent. The police calls members of the community Irani or Afghani. On Wednesday, the policemen split into two teams and arrived on two trains to ensure that the suspects were not alerted by informants who lay in wait for policemen. As the teams started their combing operations, some suspects started running towards the river. "Till now no police team was ever successful in raiding this place and getting out unhurt," said an officer, adding that there have been instances in the past when raiding policemen have even been assaulted. In the current raid, we have managed to arrest six chain snatchers from the area," said an officer involved in the operation. Jaani's family said the police caught three others who were running with him. They said these people even they requested the police to help when they saw Jaani was drowning, adding that the cops did nothing. "Haider had no police record and was not a criminal, yet he lost his life in their combing operation," said Advocate Ganesh Iyer. "We are filing a writ petition against the Thane rural police and will meet the CM to initiate a probe into the matter. Thane Rural Superintendent of Police Suez Haque said the police had warrants against some of the accused and the top brass was aware of the raid. "We had certain instructions and also warrants. Yes, there was this incident during the raid but I wouldn't be the right person to comment on it."

Over 50 groups come together in Thane to support social causes on Gudi Padwa Monday, 23 March 2015 - 3:05pm IST | Simran Manyar | Edited by: Disha Shetty Over 50 groups in Thane came together on occasion of Gudi Padwa on Saturday morning to participate in a procession called Shobha yatra.

2015-03-23Parishioners, historian stumble upon 17th-century
PARISHIONERS, HISTORIAN STUMBLE UPON 17TH-CENTURY TREASURE IN THANE CHURCH By Jyoti Shelar, Mumbai Mirror | Updated: Mar 23, 2015, 11.57 PM IST On Saturday, a group of parishioners and a historian stumbled upon the goldwashed remains of a sculpture among the ruins of the 17th century-old Our Lady of Mercy church in Thane. They were conducting a survey of the church. The broken part, resembling the palm of an infant Jesus held by Mother Mary, is 6 cm tall and 5 cm wide, and appears to have been a part of a bigger statue. The parishioners have demanded complete excavation of the 9.5-acre site in the hope that it will yield many such historical nuggets. Archeologist and historian Mayur Thakare, who found the piece, said: "After the discovery, I cleaned up the sculpture and handed it over to the parishioners. We are planning to display it in a parish museum or gallery that is being planned." He said the church is not a Centre- or state-protected monument, and the discovery was not a part of any official activity. Parishioner Kasber Augustine said that further excavation of the premises is essential. "The small piece that was found tells us that many such valuables of historical importance may be lying underneath," said Augustine. However, the process of obtaining an excavation license from the Archaeological Survey of India is a long one. Around 6,000 parishioners have been trying to get a heritage tag for these remains for a long time. They had written to the Directorate of Archeology and Museums and the authorities have requested the Thane Municipal Corporation and the district collector to include the structure in the heritage list. In its letter, the Directorate of Archeology and Museums in clearly stated: "The church is a representative specimen of the Indo-Portuguese art and architecture and is a living testimony to the rich history and heritage of Thane." Despite that, Augustine said, "nothing has moved forward so far."

2015-03-22New Thane eatery offers comfort food for all - Mid
New Thane eatery offers comfort food for all By Anu Prabhakar | Posted 22-Mar-2015 It's not often that we eat street food and are assured of its hygiene. But what if you are, for once? The thought entices me and my fellow diner to head to Street Foods by Punjab Grill at Viviana Mall in Thane. The nearly three-month-old eatery functions on the concept of 'fun dining', as is reflected in the menu. Street Foods offers tikkas, biryanis, pao and rotis among many other dishes. As we enter the eatery, we are taken in by the dcor, done up with brightly-coloured walls, colourful cushion covers and table mats. We look up at the ceiling and cannot help but grin at the overhead hanging lights outlined with tyres. We order the classic Mojito (Rs 140) and Masala soda (Rs 100). While the Mojito turns out to be a tad sweet, the Masala Soda instantly refreshes us. For starters, we order the Paneer Tikka with Salad (Rs 240) and Chicken Tikka with Salad (Rs 240) and end up liking our first round of orders. The paneer, cooked in grounded mustard to perfection, is deliciously soft and creamy. The chicken pieces in the latter, after being cooked in the eatery's in-house garam masala, are soft, tender and flavoursome. The main course arrives and we take in the plates of Tawa Soya Keema with Pao (Rs 210), Tawa Keema Chicken with Pao (Rs 280) and Khameeri Roti (Rs 40). The first two dishes are rustled up at the eatery's live counter. My fellow diner and I watch as liberal doses of butter, soya chunks/chicken pieces, cashewnut paste, cinnamon, cloves, red cabbage and onions (for the crunch) garam masala and other spices sizzle on the large tawa. The chef squashes the soya chunks (and, later, chicken pieces) with his ladle with flourish, before carefully squeezing a small lime over it and topping it with slices of raw onion. At the table, we are served the dishes with buttered pao. Not used to so much butter in our food, our first thought is that the dishes are a tad too rich for our taste. But once we get past the first few morsels, we begin to enjoy them. The soya (and the chicken in the non vegetarian dish) mingles with the spices, chillies, lime juice and butter to deliver all out winners. The soya is soft (and that's saying a lot for something like soya) while the chicken is wonderfully cooked. The fluffy Khameeri Roti, made with fermented yeast, is soft and the perfect accompaniment to our main course. We end the meal with Kulfi Rabri Falooda (s 140) and are delighted with our choice. The rich, thick and creamy dessert, made with reduced milk, sugar and falooda, is not overtly sweet. Street Foods aims to serve diners no-frills food they might have enjoyed as a kid like kheema pao. On that front, full marks to the eatery.

The jam stretched from Kalwa bridge to Mukand junction on both Thane and Belapur-bound carriageways. The procession brought the traffic flow to a complete standstill for over two hours in the afternoon peak hours. The Rabodi traffic cops had a tough time trying to streamline the traffic. "The procession started when our men were about to take their shift after lunch. We were not prepared to divert the traffic flow," said a traffic cop. Many motorists complained that some tried to sneak on the wrong side, adding to the chaos. "It was a nightmare to navigate through the procession. Unruly motorists sneaked in the wrong side and this only added to our woes," said a motorist Sushant Yadav. Many were going to visit their friends and families on the occasion of New Year, but were forced to sweat it out in the heat due to the snarls.

Thane based organisation conducts self defence classes for women Friday, 20 March 2015 - 6:36pm IST | Simran Manyar | Edited by: Disha Shetty With more and more women venturing out of their homes, self defence classes are finding favour with many. Thane based organisation Bhagini Nivedita Mandal is organising self-defence sessions for women everyday between 7-9.30 pm. The classes are held at Shriram Vyayam Shala near Talaopali in Thane (W). Around 30 women come to attend these sessions on a regular basis for free. Dr. Ashwini Bapat, one of the members of the organisation said, Self defence has become important for women considering the rising number of incidents of crimes against women. Women in the age group of 16-74 come here to be trained. We teach them to use pocket sized knife to defend themselves. While the pocket knife is unlikely to cause too much harm to the offender, it can help distract him, buying time for the women to act. The women will also participate in a rally to spread awareness about the importance of learning self defence on the occasion of Gudi Padwa. Priya Dhawale, one of the participants at the workshop said, I have learnt many techniques to protect myself. More importantly the training has given me more confidence to face any unwanted situation.

As temperature in Thane soars, docs stress on the need to be hydrated Thursday, 19 March 2015 - 7:25pm IST | Rupali Shinde | Edited by: Disha Shetty Rising temperatures in Thane city is causing discomfort to the residents. The second week of March saw temperatures go as high as 40 degree celsius. The night time temperature have been hovering around 24 degrees celsius. Thane Municipal Corporations pollution control department which releases the details of the temperatures recorded in the city every Monday revealed that the mercury had touched 41 degree celsius on March 12. As citizens struggle to cope with the sudden rise in temperatures, doctors stress on the need to remain hydrated. Dr Umesh Alegaokar, MD, who runs Sampada hospital at Charai said, During the summer many suffer from dizziness and viral fever. As humidity increases, it is important to increase the water intake or it could lead to fluctuations in blood pressure. With the city witnessing a boom in construction, the green cover has reduced over the years. This is also leading to the rise in temperatures as concrete absorbs a lot of heat. Ashutosh Joshi, 30, a resident of Thane said, I make sure to carry a cap and a bottle of water along with me as the heat is unbearable. I am dreading the month of May already. 27-year-old Reshma Paranjape added that she avoids going out in the afternoons and ensures that she remains hydrated.

Engineering students from Thane create a device to reduce drunk driving accidents Wednesday, 18 March 2015 - 3:10pm IST | Simran Manyar | Edited by: Disha Shetty Engineering students are encouraged to be innovative while working on their college projects. Four students of VPMs Polytechnic College in Thane not just took it seriously, they developed a contraption called the 'alcohol and sleep warning system' that can be used in cars to control road accidents caused by drunk driving. The device was developed by 18-year-olds Roshani Kavishwar, Pradnya Sawant, Pooja More and Sayali Kamble, 19 who are pursuing their Diploma in Computer Engineering. The sensor of the gadget that the four teenagers developed will be attached to the cars steering wheel. It will be able to detect alcohol on the drivers breath as soon as he enters the car. If the driver is drunk, the cars ignition will not turn on. The second safety measure is a headband that the driver will be required to wear. In case that the driver is falling asleep, his head will jerk, activating a buzzer in the car. This will wake the driver up and alert the other passengers in the car. Talking about their innovative project Kavishwar said, "We have to work on a compulsory project, so we thought we should create something that can have a social impact. That is when we thought of making something that can control car accidents. More added, We read many newspapers to get an idea of the different issues to which we can find solutions to. We came across several reports about the increasing number of car accidents. Suhasini Shukla, Head of the Department of computer engineering at the College said, "The project has also won a first prize at project competition held at Ramarao Adik Institute of Technology. Some experts have also advised us to contact Regional Transport Officials to create awareness among the drivers about the gadget. The innovative solution could be available at just Rs. 5000 and can be retrofitted in existing cars too. While the students have created a working module for academic purpose, their mentors believe that it can be used for cars available in the market with just a few modifications.

2015-03-17No water supply, no wedding bells in rural Thane -
No water supply, no wedding bells in rural Thane PADMJA SINHA | Tue, 17 Mar 2015-09:01am , DNA Besides being the elixir of life, water has also become the elixir of love in Thane district. The erratic supply and lack of potable water is a big problem in Thane district, so much so, that it is giving prospective grooms many sleepless nights. Prashant Ambulkar, a social activist, says, "I have been working here for the past many years. Many have shared that they would only let their daughter marry into a family which has uninterrupted potable water supply at their home. People first inquire about water supply with the groom's family, and later about property and other aspects. Many prefer to get their daughters married to grooms living in the city where water problems are not so bad." With water supply now being a deciding factor for marriages, parents also find it difficult to choose grooms from tanker-fed and non-tanker fed villages as both of them have their own inherited problems. Suresh Sondkar from NGO Jaggar Foundation says, "Water has always been a basic necessity of life and widespread pollution and depletion of the water table has made it a precious commodity. In urban areas, the corporation ensures water supply, but rural ones are neglected. The women of the house have to travel long distances to get water, which affects their education and attendance in school." Talking about the Ghorbade family, Ambulkar says, "The parents are looking for a suitable match for their 25-year-old daughter for the past six months, but can't find a suitable groom as nobody fulfills their criteria of uninterrupted water supply." Life has been difficult for villagers as every summer, their ponds, wells and even lakes dry up. The authorities don't bother to help them, and amidst all these crises, the parents worry about the marriage of their children. Now, more than looking for a well-to-do family, they are looking for a groom who has this basic commodity at his house.. This year again, the Thane Municipal Corporation (TMC), along with the district collectorate, has made a Rs 32 crore plan to ensure water supply in all parts of the district. However, the project might take some time to get started.

Sisters from Thane guard auto rickshaws at night to earn a living Tuesday, 17 March 2015 - 3:49pm IST | Simran Manyar | Edited by: Disha Shetty Auto rickshaw drivers in Thanes Savarkar Nagar sleep soundly with the knowledge that their vehicles are being guarded even in the dead of the night. Sisters Sushma Shirsat, 40 and Mahananda Jagtap, 35, patrol the auto stands, where almost 90 auto rickshaws are parked, with chilli powder and a stick in their hand. Guarding each auto rickshaw at road number 33 in the area earns them Rs 10 per day for one vehicle, a job they have been doing since their brother died nine months ago. Sushma says, "Our brother was first employed by the drivers but we took over after his death in July 2014 to earn our bread and butter as well as to educate my son who goes to school. The sisters say that taking up another job was not feasible as they are also care givers to their 70-year-old mother Rahibai. Our mother also helps us. She sits inside an auto rickshaw with a stick in her hand, keeping a tight vigil. It was not that the sisters were fearless. They too had moments riddled with self-doubt. Mahananda says, When we first started working, we would literally shiver. Now we are confident of facing any danger. Our main aim is to save the auto rickshaws from the robbers. The sisters start patrolling at 5 pm in the evening and continue till 6.30 am in the morning the next day. Mahananda adds, We even keep a watch over the auto rickshaws whose owners do not pay us as all the vehicles are parked at the same spot. The auto rickshaw drivers too seem to be very happy about this arrangement. Subedar Yadav, 34, a driver, says, They are doing a wonderful job. Thanks to their assistance we are free of worries as we know that they stay awake throughout the night to care for our vehicles.

Thane woman arrested for blackmailing engineer By Sagar Rajput | Posted 15-Mar-2015 The Navghar police have arrested a bar girl for threatening and extorting money from a 49-year-old BMC engineer with whom she was allegedly having an affair. According to the police, the ordeal started a ago back when she demanded a sum of Rs 20 lakh from the engineer and threatened to tell the his wife about the affair if he refused to pay up. The 40-year-old woman, identified as Neelam Chauhan, a divorcee who stays in Bhayandar with her two sons. An officer from Navghar police station revealed: The engineer, along with his friends, had been to a farmhouse in Alibaug on a trip.

The officer added that the engineer had helped her financially for her sons education and she also started a shop in Kandivli with his help. But things turned ugly post January when Neelam took to alcohol and started demanding more money from him. When he eventually put his foot down, she allegedly started stalking him. She even managed to acquire his Call Data Records (CDR) and trace him to Lonavala, where he was vacationing with his family, and threatened to harm his wife. This scared the engineer, who confessed everything to his wife and the couple then registered a case against her at Navghar police station. A police officer then called Neelam through the engineer and on the pretext of handing over the money, arrested her from Mulund East on Wednesday.

Corporators like Dhruvkishore Patil and former mayor Cathleen Periera had been in talks with MGL to get the pipeline to Bhayander. Residents of Bhayander (east) are also awaiting PNG lines. The major hurdle has been the passing of the pipeline from underneath the railway tracks. Residents have been complaining about the delay in procuring LPG cylinders. An LPG cylinder, they alleged, takes a week or more after placing the order.

2015-03-12Action Stations: Thane thoughts - Mid-Day
Action Stations: Thane Thoughts Mar 12, 2015, 08:24 IST | Maleeva Rebello It is the busiest railway station in Mumbai according to a survey conducted by the Indian Railways in 2013, but that after Andheri and Kalyan. Thane station, like all major stops is a hub of activity. With 10 platforms, Thane sees more than 1,000 local trains and 140 outstation trains stop every day. Despite the heavy human and rail traffic, Thane is a clean station with the station swept at regular intervals, according to regular commuter Nitin Shetty.Shetty, a gym instructor says, Compared to other stations on the Central Railway, Thane is very clean and well maintained. I have seen sweepers cleaning the platforms at regular intervals. Yet, dustbins are scarce.If there were more dustbins, which were placed at regular intervals it would really help. When I have to dispose of litter, I have often found myself searching for a dustbin, so accessibility is key. Better sanitation The platforms may be cleaned regularly but Sharon Noronha, college student says, The washrooms are very dirty. Even though I desperately want to use the washroom sometimes, I avoid it because of the lack of hygiene.I prefer to not use them and fall ill instead. The toilets on platforms 2-3 from where the locals generally leave are frequently locked, so this is a huge problem because the few times they have been open, I have noticed that they are cleaner than the others.ven though the station is cleaned regularly, Karan Umesh, an architect says the station is not really that clean. The Ghatkopar resident says, I get very angry when I see people throwing wrappers, spitting paan and littering almost immediately after the platform has been swept. Civic sense is greatly lacking in people, there is a need for awareness about cleanliness in public places. This will ensure that commuters behave well. Thane resident, Anisha Hasija suggests training for cleanliness marshals at the station. She says, There are many cleaners but they do not do a good job. Even after they have cleaned the place, there is a lot of trash still there. Maybe the railways should have a supervisor or better training, so that these people do a good job. Booking bane Trader Pankaj Voralia who commutes from Thane daily says even though there are many coupon and smart card machines, not all of them work. He says, I have had my money get deducted and not got a ticket on a number of occasions. These type of faulty machines are plain troublesome. There was also a time when the coupon machine had the wrong time and date, I was caught by a ticket checker (TC) and forced to pay a fine. These incidents end up spoiling my day." Nitish Naik, a researcher finds the multiple ticket counters at Thane very helpful. He says, "Thane is the best place to book my monthly pass as there are many counters open. This makes it easier for me to get my ticket without hassles. The staff is also very helpful and friendly. The experience wasnt so good for Huma Pheroze, a teacher who was forced to wait for 20 minutes because she did not give change when buying her ticket. The Seawood resident says, I needed a ticket back to Seawood and I had an Rs 500 note. The ticket counter attendant shouted at me for not giving change. I tried to explain to him that the Automated Teller Machine (ATM) did not give me change, but he would not listen. He made me wait till he got the change from commuters after me, even though I pleaded that I needed to get home and requested him to ask the next window attendant for change. Security issues Dheeraj Rathod, a banker says, I leave early and return late, so I observe the station at odd hours. The security is very low post-10 pm and pre-6 am. These are actually the times when the station needs maximum security as many outstation trains ply at those times. There are a number of robberies that happen and no police to complain to. A few days ago there was a man roaming naked on Thane station at 4 pm when I was returning from work. I was shocked and went to complain to the policemen who were sitting and not doing anything. The police told me that the man is a beggar and they cannot do anything. This incident was scary though, says Hasija. Jasmeet Kaur, a physiotherapist says, I was returning home at 10 pm when a few men passed some lewd remarks about me. I went and complained to the railway police who told me that I should not make such a hue and cry as they did not touch me. Thane station is unsafe and in this case, the police did not do anything. which is more problematic. Thane station was the first to have escalators installed on two of its platforms on the Mumbai Railway network. This reduces the stress on the staircase, but many people run and push on these which makes it unsafe. Perhaps some escalator etiquette would do some good. There is need for more security at the station with some women reporting molestation at various times. The lighting is good, with the station having a nice waiting room. The toilets need more sanitation and the ones on platform 2-3 need to be open more often. The coupon, smartcard and ticket counter work well. However, a board saying that the coupon or smartcard machine isnt working would be helpful as many commuters claim that several machines at the station are faulty. Overall, Thane proves a mixed bag, but a focus to retain the positives and maintain quality is needed. The negatives need attention and action. This is part of our ongoing series on railway stations seen through the lens of locals.

School in Thane walks the talk, installs bio-gas plant Wednesday, 11 March 2015 - 7:47pm IST With an aim to teach their students the value of cleanliness and reusing garbage, Anand Vishwa Gurukul School in Thanes Raghunath Nagar has installed a bio-gas plant. Fertilisers are being produced using the bio-gas plant in which waste is fed after it is segregated into wet and dry categories. Authorities say that they are also developing marketing skills of the children by asking them to devise strategies to sell the fertilisers at nominal rates. Pradeep Dhawal, secretary of Sharda Education Society that runs the school, said, The bio-gas plant has been installed in the premises of the canteen. Waste generated in the canteen is fed into the bio-gas plant. Students will be able to understand the concepts better when they see it in practise. Dhawal says once the fertilisers are manufactured, the students will be asked to sell them to those known to them. This is not the first initiative taken by the school to make the students environment conscious. Vaidehi Kolambkar, principal of the schools primary section, said, We ran a project called happy surroundings for a year as a part of which the students went to nearby residential areas to spread awareness about cleanliness. They go back to the societies once in every two months to inspect whether cleanliness is being maintained or not.

State de-registers 3 Thane hospitals from RGJAY for not treating poor Mumbai | Published:March 11, 2015 1:45 am In the last six months, following a round of surprise checks at various hospitals, the state health department has de-empaneled three private Thane-based hospitals enlisted under the Rajiv Gandhi Jeevandayee Arogya Yojana (RGJAY). While one requested for de-registration, the other two were taken off the list as they remained inactive and treated no economically backward class patient under the scheme. The two inactive hospitals, Riddhi Siddhi Hospital Private Limited and New Way Hospital, were served a notice in October 2014 to start admitting poor patients for surgeries. But in the absence of any admission for over three months, a decision to de-register them was taken. The RGJAY, initiated in 2012, is a state-government run scheme, which provides free selected surgeries to yellow and orange card holders. Hospitals enlisted under the scheme are refunded by the state government for the medical procedures once the surgery is completed and documents are presented. Across the state, 14 hospitals have been de-empaneled since September last year, in Ahmadnagar, Latur, Beed, Nagpur, Sangli, Pune, Satara, Chandrapur and Jalgaon. Of these, eight were inactive, five requested for de-empanelment and one Ahmadnagar-based hospital (Saisuman Hrudralaya) was involved in fraudulent activities. Twice every month, the performance of hospitals across districts is gauged. Some hospitals that empanel for publicity, but admit no poor patients are shortlisted and put under observation. If their performance does not improve, the RGJAY committee can decide to cancel their registration, said the schemes chief operating officer, Piyush Singh. Currently, RGJAY provides free treatment for 971 medical procedures in 52 registered hospitals in Mumbai. Across Maharashtra, 459 hospitals are empaneled. The Saisuman Hrudralaya hospital had been conducting hysterectomy (removal of uterus) of patients, but was wrongly presenting it as caesarean hysterectomy to extract additional funds . During our checks, we caught hold of their activity and decided to de-empanel them, Singh said.

A total of 27 arrests were made, of which, 18 were aged between 19 and 30 years, the police said. April 2014 was the cyber cells best month, with 13 cases registered, six detected and four arrests made. Inspector Sanju John, who heads the cyber cell, said that there were a number of factors to explain the detection rate. A major hurdle is that the servers of e-mail service providers like Gmail are not located in India. When we write seeking details of suspect account-holders, we do not receive any response, he said. John added that in many cases, arrests were not possible even after the Internet Protocol addresses of the perpetrators of the crimes had been identified. The accused in many crimes live in countries with which India does not either have friendly ties or an extradition treaty. Perpetrators of cyber crimes have also been using sophisticated software to mask their IP addresses. This makes it difficult to find the exact location of the accused, John added. Banking fraud comprises a majority of cases registered by the Thane cyber cell in 2014. Last year, we received many complaints of money being siphoned off from bank accounts by callers posing to be representatives of banks. They dupe their victims into parting with their details of debit or credit cards. Over the years, there has been a huge increase in these cases, he said. 450 calls were made to residents of Thane in 2014 to commit banking fraud. All of these were made using SIM cards registered in Bihar and Jharkhand,

2015-03-09Illustrator Thane Benson on the Art of Drawing Com
Illustrator Thane Benson on the Art of Drawing Comics in a Digital Age MONDAY, MARCH 9, 2015 AT 8:32 A.M. Thane Benson studied illustration at Syracuse University before computers ruled the world. It was there that he honed his drawing technique and learned basic pen-and-paper skills that have helped him stand out in a digital era. After college, Benson grew disenchanted while working in the coloring department at a toy company. (Yes, the coloring department thats a real thing.) Benson was coloring prototypes of toys before they were tested and mass-produced overseas, and while it was fun to have a behind-the-scenes view of toy production, working for the man in an environment where people werent always treated well didnt jive with Benson. Ever since the toy company job, Ive had a long string of odd jobs from construction to substitute teaching to milking cows, Benson says. (Yes. Milking cows.) While toiling away in various fields, Benson decided to take ownership of his art. I wanted it to be my own expression, not just art for the sake of a paycheck, he explains. In addition to drawing, Benson always liked stories. Hed also been interested in comics though mostly as a reader, not a writer. But that changed when he starting writing and illustrating his own stuff in an effort to combine two passions: art and storytelling. After gaining traction with web comics, Bensons career took off when an artist friend introduced him to Kickstarter. The crowdfunding phenomenon opened a whole lot of doors, he says, and allowed him to start publishing his artwork in the physical world, too. Benson now has graphic novels in Kilgore Used Books & Comics. Theyre really great there; theyre very supportive of local artists, he says. As far as hes concerned, making comics is all about finding elements that are fun to draw. Benson is currently wrapping up the third volume of a mini-series, Quick, the Clockwork Knight. That started with me making a list of all the things I like to draw: monsters, knights, robots, dragons and monsters, he says, adding that it got him thinking: What if I made a knight thats also a robot and he fights monsters? The result has definitely been fun to draw. Im not very good at keeping my comics in boxes, continues Benson. I do lots of little drawings that are all over the place, then scan them into the computer, put boxes around them and shrink or stretch them to get them to fit. After that, its a combination of handwork and computer work: Benson prints his prototypes, draws over the printing in pencil, pen or marker (sometimes it takes several tries to get it right). Then the page goes back into the computer, where Benson draws over it once again, this time using a tablet. Drawing on the computer is a little odd, but it saves time, he says. For me, the big advantage of the computer is the undo button. In his comics, Benson strikes the perfect balance between dark and, well, comic. While many of the plot lines delve into the nature of existence and the meaning of life, Benson says, its also silly and cartoony and doesnt take itself too seriously. His favorite thing is when readers bring their own take: Ive had a lot of religiously-minded people read my work and tell me its very interesting theologically, and others have read and thought there was a political metaphor. Benson recently completed his master of library and information science degree, and he currently works for the Denver Public Library, where a few of his pieces were recently displayed in the staff art show at the Central branch. I've been able to use a lot of my creative talents for the library, Benson says, explaining that hes done poster illustrations to promote events such as Banned Book Week. Hes also had an opportunity to write and perform his own original stories for preschool storytimes, and to illustrate his own interpretation of classic stories via the Quick Draw Storytime video series released on YouTube last year.
2015-03-09Parts of Thane creek a step closer to wildlife san
Parts of Thane creek a step closer to wildlife sanctuary tag Mumbai | Published:March 10, 2015 12:18 am The state forest department is one step closer to declaring parts of the Thane creek as a wildlife sanctuary. The states wildlife wing in Nagpur has recommended the proposal to the state government this week. The 1690.52-hectare wildlife sanctuary will include mangrove forests and adjoining mudflats along the western part of the Thane creek. It excludes the main part of the creek and falls between the Vashi and Airoli bridges. Called the Thane Creek Sanctuary, the protected area will mainly include the mangrove forests and wetlands of Mulund, Vikhroli, Bhandup, Kanjurmarg and Mandale. We have recommended the proposal of the mangrove cell to notify parts of the Thane creek as a wildlife sanctuary and sent it to the forest secretary. Once the sanctuary is notified, rights have to be established, which may take some time, said a senior forest official who did not wish to be named. Newsline had first reported about the mangrove cells proposal in March last year. The proposed sanctuary area is home to more than 25,000 flamingos and various bird species such as painted storks, ospreys, terns and little herons, ibis, white-bellied sea eagle and plovers. According to N Vasudevan, chief conservator of forest, mangrove cell, this area is where thousands of flamingos congregate and people are not even aware of it and believe flamingos are mainly seen at Sewri. Declaring the area a wildlife sanctuary will facilitate regulated tourism in the area. Currently, it is very expensive to reach this untouched stretch from the Gateway of India and no tourist boats go to the area. Once its declared a sanctuary, the marine interpretation centre of the mangrove cell at Airoli will be the gateway to this sanctuary, he said. Joint secretary of forests, U M Farooqui, said Monday that his department was yet to get the proposal. Thane creek will be the second marine sanctuary in the state, after Malvan. Notifying this stretch as a protected area was an environmental impact mitigation condition for the Navi Mumbai International Airport and Mumbai Trans Harbour Link projects. Traditional fishing and related activities will not be hampered as the protected areas do not include the main creek where fishing takes place, assured forest officials.

2015-03-09Thane man held for assaulting traffic cop - Mumbai
THANE MAN HELD FOR ASSAULTING TRAFFIC COP Updated: Mar 10, 2015, 12.08 AM A 25-year-old man from Thane was arrested on Sunday for assaulting a traffic constable who had stopped the man's car for tinted windshields. The accused, Nishant Khona, son of ENT specialist Dr Dhanraj Khona, was arrested under the Indian Penal Code sections 353 (rash and negligent driving), 353 (stopping a public servant from discharging his duty), 323, and 504 (threatening an on duty public servant). He was released on bail on Monday. According to the complaint, Khona was stopped by Constable Anand Rokde on the Upwan Road in Thane, while he was driving with a female friend. Rokde said in his complaint that Khona abused him, and told him that he "should have known whose vehicle it was" before stopping him. The complaint said when Rokde demanded that Khona surrender his driving licence and pay a fine for using tinted windshields, the latter caught hold of the constable's shirt collar, tore off the buttons and also pulled out the name tag from his uniform. While Khona and his father Dhanraj remained unavailable for comment, Inspector S Patole from Vartak Nagar police station confirmed the ruckus. "The accused was arrested and released on bail. This incident should be taken as alesson for those who misbehave with the police and take the law in their hands. Investigation into the constable's complaint is on," Patole said. Traffic police sources said that Khona's medical reports were awaited to ascertain whether he was drunk at the time of the incident.

Thane NGO reunites 15 runaway kids with kin Freny Fernandes | TNN | Mar 9, 2015, 12.00 AM IST THANE: After four months of living on platforms across the city, 15-year-old Sagar Wimali could barely keep his tears in control as he hugged his parents on Sunday. Sagar, who ran away from his home in Karnataka to meet movie stars in Mumbai, spent two months begging on platforms before he met the volunteers of Samatol Foundation, a Thane-based NGO, which works for rehabilitation of runaway children. "We still have no idea why he ran away. All I remember is that we came home from his school and spoke about his good grades over dinner. Before we woke up the next day, he was not at home," said Shivanand Wimali, Sagar's father. Just like Samatol found Sagar's parents, they also rescued 26 other runaway children. Fifteen families from places as far off as Uttar Pradesh and Andhra Pradesh, among others came to the city to pick up their children. Samatol volunteers will take the other boys home in the next few days. "Every eight minutes, a child goes missing in the country. Everyday, there are around 200 children who enter Mumbai and Thane though numerous railway terminuses, especially Dadar, CST, Thane, Vasai and Kurla. It is difficult for the Child Welfare Committee to handle such large numbers and we are here to help," said Vijay Jadhav, founder, Samatol Foundation. As these children undergo a metal trauma and are exposed to vices such as sniffing boot polish and whiteners, Samatol holds a one-and-a-half month rehabilitation and counselling for them. This group of 27 boys were part of their 23rd such camp.
2015-03-08Dropout rate among girls in Thane dips - Times of
Dropout rate among girls in Thane dips Manoj Badgeri | TNN | Mar 9, 2015, 12.00 AM IST Thane: There has been a rise in the volume of girls completing primary school education in the district over the last four years. Though experts have lauded the numbers, they have called for far more initiatives to promote education among female students and ensure zero dropouts. The district education data reveals that 22.74% girl students from class IV and 17.99% from class VII dropped out of schools in 2010. In 2013, the volume fell drastically to just 2.49% and 1.23% for class IV and VII, respectively, implying that more girls continued with their education. (See Box) Prashant Redij of the Maharashtra Principal's Association said, "The aim should be for 100% literacy. There could be various reasons like parent's migration to another city for a student discontinuing education. But the onus should be on the schools to ensure that each and every child completes primary education." Experts said more girls continuing education would also help better the male-female literacy ratio in the district. Activists said that the government should create awareness among people in rural belts and low-income groups informing them about the ill-effects of girls dropping out of schools. Education activist Surendra Dighe from Thane said, "Many girls attend my weekend camps where I impart education to children of ragpickers and urchins. There is less awareness about the importance of a girl child's education among the lower rung of the society, which needs to improve
2015-03-08Thane Schools not providing data on autistic kids:
Thane Schools not providing data on autistic kids: cops Nishikant Karlikar | TNN | Mar 9, 2015, 12.00 AM IST THANE: The first-of-its-kind exercise of collecting data on autistic schoolkids received a lukewarm response due to reluctance of schools in furnishing the details, said sources from Child Protection Unit (Thane police). The initiative was started in November after parents turned to cops for help. This was in the wake of an incident where a 19-year-old autistic boy went missing from Kandivli and came back three days later. Though a team of CPU and parents went to collect the data, only four out of 10 schools provided the information, said sources. Only 50 kids could be added to their database. Some schools reportedly did not provide data as they were concerned if giving out the information to cops would be safe. "After the Kandivli incident, we pulled up our socks to avert any such cases in future," said Madan Ballal, police inspector, CPU. After the data base is created, a constable will interact with a child so that they can get familiar with him and tell their likes and dislikes, said cops.

2015-03-07TMC seeks ideas from residents to develop Thane's
TMC seeks ideas from residents to develop Thanes waterfront Manoj Badgeri | TNN | Mar 8, 2015, 02.38 AM IST THANE: The Thane Municipal Corporation (TMC) is seeking ideas from residents to develop the waterfront project proposed to come up along the city's shorelines. The TMC is presently fine-tuning its plans and incorporating changes in the project to make it commercially viable as well as compliant to environmental rules. "We have prepared a rough plan for this project and want it to be remembered as a pet project of the residents. Many residents have travelled extensively and visited waterfront sites abroad and in other cities. We want them to share their inputs with us," said a senior civic official associated with the project. According to the plans, the around 31.5kms of shoreline skirting the city will be developed as a recreation area. Also, there are plans to start water transport connecting various parts of the city and adjoining towns using this mode. Officials said that the development can also cut down the present massive load on road and railways. The civic body plans to implement the project in phases and will take up a small stretch between Thane railway bridge and Saket first, which will serve as a template for the other stretches to be developed, said officials. The TMC had appointed a panel of experts from Belgium to carry out a study for waterfront and developing the area along the waterfront. The project was presented before the surface ministry and the environment department informally recently. Though the ministries reportedly lauded the concept, the TMC won't be getting any monetary push from either of them, said an official. Accordingly, the cash-strapped TMC is streamlining plans for this project so that they can attract investors in the project. "We recently gave a separate presentation to the central surface transport and environment ministries. Though, we got a positive response for our efforts, we aren't expecting any monetary assistance. So we are presently working on making the project more finically viable. We will start off with a small stretch preferably a kilometer-long one along the Thane creekside. After gauging the response and expenses, we will work out modalities to take it further," said another senior civic official.

Additional public prosecutor and assistant government pleader Buleshwar Hinge slapped a notice to CIDCO under section 80 of CPC (Civil procedure code) last week for non-payment of his fees in various land acquisition cases where he appeared on behalf of CIDCO. In the notice, Hinge said that he appeared in several land references, including land acquisition matters of CIDCO, that dated from 1986 to 1988. On October 31, 2009, Special Land acquisition officer of Thane had directed CIDCO to pay a fee of Rs 20,58,640 to Hinge. However, Hinge till date has received no payment from CIDCO, despite a reminder being sent to the corporation in November 2013. "I have appeared for CIDCO in many land acquisition related cases. My fee is due since October 2009. Despite sending the letter of Thane deputy collector and special land acquisition officer, CIDCO did not respond. Hence, I have to send a notice to them," Hinge told PTI. He alleged that CIDCO was indifferent towards those who work with them and in the interest of the body.

FIR against Thane leader for cheating bizman of Rs 26 croreBy Sunil BaghelSunil Baghel, Mumbai Mirror | Mar 7, 2015, 01.48 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 articlesAccused Ravindra PhatakThe Mumbai Police have registered a first information report (FIR) for cheating, criminal breach of trust and criminal conspiracy worth over Rs 26 crore in a real estate project against Narayan Rane's former aide Ravindra Phatak, his wife and a few others. Phatak, himself a well known politician from Thane, left the Shiv Sena with Rane to join Congress but returned to the Sena fold a few months ago. The complainant is one Prem Sarogi, who has interests in mining business in Konkan as well as Vidarbha. The interesting fact about the way police registered the case is that though Sarogi had made the complaint in September last year and the police recorded his statement in December, they converted that into an FIR only a few days ago. This happened a few days after the sessions court rejected Phatak's anticipatory bail application. Complainant's statement Interestingly, the anticipatory bail application is supposed to be filed on the basis of FIR, but Phatak approached the court simply on the basis of Sarogi's statement recorded by the police in December 2014. "The accused has no right to procure the statement of the complainant till an FIR is registered. But, in this case, the accused could attach the copy of our client's statement to his application well before the police registered the FIR and without approaching us for the details, this is clearly questionable," said advocate Zulfiquar Memon of MZM Legal, indicating towards a leak from the police. However, Additional Sessions Judge V K Shewale rejected Phatak's anticipatory bail application making observations against him. Phatak's contention before the sessions court was that he was innocent and that "the allegations were based on fantasy of the complainant." He contended that the allegations were being made only to tarnish his reputation and that the transaction was purely civil in nature. Land deal gone wrong The complaint lodged by Sarogi against Phatak, his wife and four others pertains to a land deal in Majiwada, Thane. According to the complaint, Phatak allured Sarogi into investing into the land parcel "saying that it was free from any encumbrances" which turned out to be false. There were number of encroachments on the land, says the complaint. "Several plans and agreements/title documents were shown to me by the accused, which I now believe were all fabricated and forged to induce me to invest large amounts into the project," reads Sarogi's complaint. According to Sarogi, till this point he had paid Rs 13 crore, but after he raised the issue of encroachments with Phatak and others, they asked him to pay another Rs 13.95 crore in the name of getting the land cleared. It adds that after Phatak was warned of legal action, he started using abusive language and threatened Sarogi of dire consequences. Phatak has now approached the Bombay High Court for anticipatory bail, which is likely to be heard on March 9.
2015-03-05Thane: Throwing water balloons from building will
Thane: Throwing water balloons from building will get society office bearers booked By Vinay Dalvi |Posted 4 hours Thane police have started sending notices to societies, asking them to not throw water balloons from the premises on Holi or risk getting the chairman and secretary of the society arrested; Mumbai cops may follow suit Throwing water balloons from your housing society in Thane could get you and the office bearers of your society arrested. The Thane police have started sending notices to societies in the run-up to Holi, asking them to warn residents to refrain from the practice or risk being booked. The notices have asked society office bearers to call together a meeting to inform them not to throw water balloons from the premises, onto the streets. If people are found doing so, its chairman and secretary are also likely to be booked, along with the culprit in question. Police said throwing water balloons is a common practice by mischief-mongers on Holi. Children usually throw water balloons or spray water on people walking or driving on the road. “Due to the speed at which the balloon is thrown from the terrace, bikers get serious injuries due to the fall,” said a police officer. Police have also instructed societies to lock the terraces. “We have started sending notices to societies,” confirmed V V Laxminarayan, joint commissioner of police, Thane police. Cops will act against society officer bearers under Sections 336 (act endangering life or personal safety of others), 337 (causing hurt by act endangering life or personal safety of others) and 338 (causing grievous hurt by act endangering life or personal safety of others) of Indian Penal Code (IPC). Mumbai too?Mumbai police, too, are mulling action on similar lines and have had several meetings with office bearers of residential societies to make them aware of the consequences of throwing balloons. Local police stations have also been asked to convene meetings regarding the same issue. “We have started organising meetings of societies and informing them about the precautions to take on Holi,” said Dattatray Bargude, senior police inspector, Khar police station. Police have also started conducting raids on colour vendors to check if they are selling colours which can have toxic effects or cause colour poisoning. “We are making sure that no shops are selling waters balloons that can damage people and are also acting against colour sellers with the help of the Food and Drug Administration (FDA),” said Dhananjay Kulkarni, deputy commissioner of police, Mumbai. The police have cancelled all leaves of policemen from Holi (today) to Dhulivandan (tomorrow). Communally sensitive areas will be strengthened with additional police force, so that throwing of colours by mischief-makers on other communities doesn’t result in communal tension. “We will also keep more policemen near beaches,” added Kulkarni. Government Railway Police (GRP) has also started creating awareness among slum dwellers near railway tracks. “Last year, there wasn’t a single incident of throwing of water balloons on people in running trains. This year, too, we will make sure such incidents don’t take place. We are deploying police constables on railway tracks in Dharavi, Kanjurmarg, on the Harbour line and parts of Western Line,” said Dr Ravindra Singhal, GRP commissioner.

But two towers in Thane, one residential and the other commercial, have managed to come close enough. Kores residential tower in Thane’s Vartak Nagar and Beauty arcade in Khopat have been using the waste generated in their premises to produce vermicompost. "It is all about give and take. You must give back to nature, what you take from it," says Dr Lata Ghanshyamani who introduced the idea of vermicomposting to her neighbours in Kores towers two years back. The bio-fertiliser generated is sold under the brand name Nisarg Organic vermicompost.Dr Ghanshyamani, who owns a clinic at Beauty Arcade, convinced other shop owners to give the initiative of zero waste a shot. For two months now, the residents have not given any waste to the garbage collection van. The building generates around 10 kg of garbage in a single day. “Waste is divided into wet, dry, electronic-waste and floral waste. It takes one and half months to convert waste into fertiliser. The dry waste is sold to a scrap dealer while the rest is used to create vermicompost. Sanitary napkins too are collected in a separate bin installed by cannon,” said Dr Ghanshyamani.  While the initial investment came from Dr Ghanshyamani and her friend Shaila Kamat, the residents pitched in after nine months after the results started showing. "If there are 150 flats in a society, the members will have to shell out Rs 45,000 as an initial investment. They would then have to incur an additional expense of Rs 2-3 thousand every month.” Dr Ghanshyamani believes that every society must aspire to generate zero waste.The fertilisers and vermicompost produced are now sold, after a Chennai based laboratory certified its quality. Aarti Shetty, resident of Kores tower shares, “In the beginning I did not understand how it would work, but I liked the initiative a lot. Now we do not throw our floral waste in the lakes like we used to.” Advocate Milind Sathye who is the secretary of Kores tower, said "We have formed a green committee which is overlooked by Dr Ghanshyamani and her friend Shaila Kamat. We will not say that we have no use of the garbage van at all, but the quantity of waste generated has reduced drastically and we are happy about it.”  Thursday, 05 March 2015 - 5:20pm IST | Rupali Shinde | Edited by: Disha Shetty #Thane #Vartak Nagar #Khopat #Nisarg Organic vermicompost #Milind Sathye #Shaila Kamat #Dr Lata Ghanshyamani #Vermicomposting #Kores towers #Beauty Arcade #garbage #residential society #commercial building #doctor #Organic #fertiliser #zero waste X What's happening in your neighbourhood?

As a part of its awareness campaign, the NGO organised several workshops to train residents to make organic colours.Bhagyashree Grampurohit, project co-ordinator, said, "Using chemical colours might lead to eye infections, asthma, skin problems and even learning disability in long run. So, we thought of arranging sessions to teach people to prepare colours using natural products like vegetables and fruits. Dry as well as wet colours could be prepared from flowers like marigold, flame of forest as well as green leafy vegetables, beet root and turmeric powder."While the wet colours can be prepared within 24 hours by grinding and making a paste out of vegetables, the dry ones take longer. Vegetables and fruits are first dried for over a month in room temperature to make the dry colours.Lata Patkar, one of the members of the NGO said, "We are asking residents to not harm any trees to light the bonfire on Holi. We are encouraging them to use dry leaves that have fallen off the trees.” Thursday, 05 March 2015 - 9:27pm IST | Simran Manyar | Edited by: Disha Shetty #Thane #Holi #colours #organic colours #vegetables #flowers #synthetic colours #Awareness campaign #Paryavaran Dakshata Manch #NGO X What's happening in your neighbourhood?

2015-03-02Harassed by driver, two young women jump off auto
Harassed by driver, two young women jump off auto in Thane Faisal Tandel, Hindustan Times, Mumbai | Updated: Mar 03, 2015 01:12 IST Two women sustained injuries after jumping off an autorickshaw, after the driver started making obscene gestures at them on Sunday night. They were travelling from Malhar to Kapurbawadi. Following investigations, Phoolchand Gupta, 43, an auto driver was arrested from his residence in Dhokali, Manpada, by the Naupada police. He was identified with the help of a sketch that the women helped the police prepare. The auto was also seized. According to the police, the two women, aged 22 and 17, are residents of Ratnagiri. They had come to attend a seminar in Kalwa.  They  were living with an acquaintance, M Kanniya, near Malhar talkies in Naupada. After attending the seminar on Sunday, they decided to visit an uncle in Bhiwandi. Kanniya helped them board an auto around 8.30pm. “After boarding the rickshaw, the two women noticed that the driver was making vulgar gestures at the rear view mirror, so they could see him. He also kept adjusting the mirror so he could leer at them. On the Cadbury flyover, the driver sped up, ignoring the women’s protests. The two then decided to make a jump to safety. The 22-year-old woman leapt off the left side. The shocked driver slowed down, allowing the teenager to jump off. “After the girls jumped off, a woman took them to Jupiter hospital, where the staff informed the police. Both suffered minor injuries on their faces and hands. They were treated and discharged on Monday morning. “The girls helped us prepare a sketch of the accused” said VD Chandanshive, DCP, Wagle Estate Division, Zone 5. A case has been registered against Gupta under sections 354 (A), 509 and 366 of the IPC and section 12 of the Protection of Children from Sexual Offences Act. “The man denies having harassed the women, but admitted that he was the driver who was taking the two women from Malhar,” said a police officer from Naupada police station.  TagsMumbai   also readUnseasonal rain leads to Rs1,000 crore crop loss in state ‘DP one part of jigsaw puzzle to change city’ Suspected H1N1 patient commits suicide State govt says next 15 days are critical, extends help to hospitals blog comments powered by Disqus top news Terror has no religion, says BJP; condemns PDP MLAs' demand for...AAP leaders Yadav, Bhushan may be asked to step down from key panelSelling girls a business in Jharkhand, everybody has a share in the... most Popular IS executioner Jihadi John was a ‘hardworking student and a model...Boom Boom Afridi out for duck, Twitter ridicules him on his b'dayWorld Cup 2015: Take a look at viral tweets from Pak v Zim match don't miss Monetary framework targets price controlGovt open to divesting over 51% in PSUs as part of 'strategic sale'Fiscal deficit at Rs. 5.68 lakh crore, breaches budget estimatesCab service Ola buys TaxiForSure in $200-million dealRBI may cut interest rates as early as this week: Analysts photos Prince William visits China Lily James, Richard Madden are fairytale-come-true at Cinderella...

2015-03-01What work looks like with Shane and Thane Witt - S
What work looks like with Shane and Thane Witt March 01, 2015 by toughie McTuff Thane Witt, all muscled up, looking to drain the trey as Sports Instigator, Rich Winter looks on. By Rich WinterTake a good look at the photo above of St. Francis sophomore, Thane Witt.Look at the expression of confidence on this young man's face. Look at the bulging bi-ceps and the barrel chest - Clearly this man has put some time in the weight room, and it shows. It's kinda funny, these two identical twins. When I moved back to the Rosebud in Jan. of 2013, I attended a junior-high game at TCMS. I knew I knew those twins, but I just couldn't quite place them.So, I asked around.They were the twins from Rosebud, and then it dawned on me, the FAT little kids that always rand the 800 and the mile.Oh, these two were headed down a difficult path. They were into athletics, but they didn't eat very well and exercise during the off-season, well, that wasn't in their vocabulary.Yet, as I watched them play 8th grade ball, they were thin and active and running around. It took me a minute to piece it all together, but the fat twins started eating better and started exercising and started a journey from nowhere to somewhere. Shane Witt dishes another assist to a St. Francis teammate. So, I know these guys a little. I tease Thane because he thinks Duke's Jahlil Okafor is weak...(WHAT?). I was teasing Shane the other night about being 5-foot-2 and he bristled a bit and said, I'm 5-foot-9, maybe 5-foot-8 and up to 180 lbs.I love it.Facebook and other social media are so odd sometimes. The way the younger generation was talking trash this summer I thought the Witt's were has-beens or never were kind guys. Seems like there was banter floating around about how they never worked on their games and did the same things up at the gym but weren't getting any better.Huh?As I scrolled through their Facebook photos this morning, looking for the fat-guy photos, all I saw was pictures of these guys working out and working on their games. Work, work, work Work, work, work, work, work It's interesting this bucket of crabs thing we all have to deal with. Someone always has to be saying something, but the proof is in the pictures, the bodies and the improvement of two of the best young ballers on the Rosebud.I mentioned to Kernit Grimshaw that the Witt's are only sophomores after he and I went over to Red Cloud the other day.REALLY, he replied - Which is equal to an 18-year old boy saying, DAYUM!Oh, these two are tough! It's fun watching them play because the work they put in just makes them tough on the court. They don't get tired, they always get back in transition, they play tough D and they share the ball. I've not seen either snap off five-treys in a row, but I'm guessing after watching them in pre-game, that this will soon be part of their arsenal.It's so refreshing to see youngsters out there working on what they love!And the good sportsmanship award goes to Dru Espinoza... The gym at Red Cloud was packed the other night, so I was thrilled when Dru Espinoza HAD to sit next to me.I kinda mentioned that with all the upsets in the girls tournament that the top seeds in the boys ranks are probably a tad nervous.I then mentioned that I thought Todd County might have a good shot at going to state next year...He replied, "Next year? We're going this year."Love the confidence as this Todd County boys team suddenly looks like a threat.Dru played at St. Francis last year before transferring to Todd County this year so I expected some boos and maybe some trash-talking against his former teammates.I heard none of that!Instead I watched as a polite, young basketball stud, clapped for his former teammates. He shouted words of encouragement to the team and he urged St. Francis to play hard and keep going as the Warriors walked to the locker-room at halftime and then out of it to start the second half.I liked that a lot.Maybe all the garbage that floats around Facebook isn't true or isn't what we make it out to be cuz I saw some hella good sportsmanship from a former Warrior.So revved for the playoffs this week and the NCAA tournament and the NBA playoffs.Don't shoot me cuz I'm about to enter an over-load of basketball goodness.WHEEEEEEOWWWW!Rich Winter personal pet peeve.....I can't tell the twins apart....someone where a head-band or something cuz I can't tell unti the shooting hand comes up...and even then, sometimes not.  It takes two to make a thing go right, it takes two to make it outa sight //   home //   about //   gallery //   contact find us elsewhere The Writers toughie McTuff OWNER view all writers top categories Tags twitter Links Contact the writers of panicbutton.sportsblog.com Send a message to the writers of panicbutton.sportsblog.com requesting to become a writer.
