The murder has left residents of Thane Rural, the jurisdiction under which Kalyan and Bhiwandi fall, shocked as the area has witnessed a spate of crimes during festive period when the police should increase patrolling.
Aavesh’s neighbour, Afroj Ansari, was nabbed from the spot in Bhiwandi and handed over to the police while his two aides were arrested later.
The incident took place when Aavesh, a tempo driver by profession, and his family were returning from a nearby market on their bike. The family was expecting some guests at home and had gone to buy some things. The police said when the family was returning, the accused rammed the auto they were travelling in into Aavesh’s bike. When Aavesh, his wife and son fell down, the accused got off and stabbed him to death.
The police said there has been a property dispute between Afroz and Aavesh and that could have led to the killing. The dispute has gone to the court, said an officer. Zoya, Aavesh’s wife, claimed that three days ago Afroz had threatened her husband over the dispute and assaulted him but the police refused to file a complaint saying it is “a civil case”. “If they would have acted at that time, this incident could been averted,” she said, adding that Congress corporator Mastloob Sardar too is involved in the case.
DC P (zone 2, Thane) Ankit Goel said, “We have got a complaint from the victim’s wife about the involvement of some people including a corporator. We are probing the allegations.”
Zoya has alleged that Afroz and the others were trying to grab their land for illegal construction and Aavesh had been opposing it. “He was threatened several times,” she said.
The murder, however, has raised questions on law and order in Thane district. Out of the eight cases in the last 11 days, three have been in Bhiwandi, three in Kalyan while two in Ulhasnagar. Citizens said it is not only murders, street crime too has increased in these areas. There has also been a murmur of how Thane police commissioner Vivek Phansalkar, who recently took charge, has not been visiting crime scenes like his predecessor, and that it is sending a wrong message to his juniors. Phansalkar was not available for a comment.
Citizens’ groups questioned how during festive season, when police personnel are supposed to increase vigil, so many crimes are happening. They demanded that patrolling in the belt be increased. An police officer said, “We have already been told to increase patrolling on roads and in the coming days, results will be visible.”
The number of murders in Mumbai came down in 2016 from 169 in 2015 to 147.

Abandoned Years Ago on Rly Station, Love Story of These Orphans is Better Than Any Film!
When Abdul’s family was trying to find a match for him, it seemed that his union with Naima was preordained.
November 12, 2018, 2:38 pm
Very often, life is bittersweet.
The story of Abdul Rashid Shaikh and Naima Niyaz Shaikh will show you exactly why that’s true.
When Abdul was all of five, he was found abandoned at the Pune railway station. He was rescued and went on to spend the next six years of his life at a remand home for children.
When he turned 11, he was sent to a home for destitute children in Thane’s Ulhasnagar. A true fighter, this young boy completed his class 10 examinations and secured admission in Bedekar College.
It was here that he met Principal Suchitra Naik, who helped shape his life. Going way beyond her duty, Suchitra decided to provide him with a roof and brought him home.
Speaking to the Mumbai Mirror, Suchitra said, “We brought him to our home in Dosti Acres, Wadala, and raised him as our own son. Now we had three kids. Initially, my children were hesitant to accept Abdul, but slowly, they drew close to him. They realised we desperately wanted them to support him and accepted him.”
Abdul did everyone proud by topping his college. He is currently employed with the General Post Office, in the postal-sorting department.
Naima, on the other hand, was rescued from a Mumbai railway station almost 19 years ago, when she was merely three-years-old. She was then sent to the Anjuman-i-Islam’s AD Bawla Female Orphanage in Mumbai’s Versova, where she stayed on and completed her education.
Speaking to the publication, Naima said, “My sister and I were abandoned to die on a railway platform. Today, we are alive because of Anjuman-i-Islam. They cared for us like children.”
When Abdul’s family was trying to find a match for him, it seemed that his union with Naima was preordained.

Zaheer Qazi, President, Anjuman-I- Islam, said, “Naima and her older sister were three and five respectively, and were found at a station in Mumbai. They were sent to a children’s home and later brought to the Anjuman to study. Right now, we have 200 girls, some pursuing MBA, some engineering, some nursing. When Abdul’s proposal came, we saw (that) he was settled and from the same community. We found out the story of how the Naiks had brought him up and were so happy.”
These stories will give you hope that while life can be harsh, there is always someone who will pick you up and help you move forward. Let’s all try and be that person to someone who needs it.

Kalyan RPF busts flesh trade racket, one arrested
Updated: Nov 11, 2018, 08:44 IST
Two constables sighted a woman in distress, who led the RPF to the accused.
The Central Railway RPF busted a flesh trade racket on Saturday after two constables – Shakila Sheikh and Sandya Rade – spotted a woman in distress on platform number 1 of Kalyan station.
Identified as a 34-year-old native of Bangladesh, the woman opened up to a Bengali-speaking woman constable and pointed to a man who was roaming on the platform, keeping an eye on her. According to the victim, she had been forced into flesh trade and had come to meet the man, Rahim Rafiq Sheikh, 35, to get her passport back. Rahim Sheikh was arrested immediately by the Kalyan RPF. When contacted, senior divisional security commissioner of Central Railway Sachin Bhalode confirmed the development and said a flesh trade racket was busted by the Kalyan RPF.
According to the victim, she was brought on November 7 to Mumbai from Bangladesh by a man named Aakash on the pretext of finding a job. She was, however, handed over to Raju Rafiq Sheikh, 40, who sold her for sex a couple of times, before sending her alone to Kalyan to meet Rahim Sheikh, a resident of Ulhasnagar.
“Primary interrogation has revealed that Rahim Rafik Sheikh has confessed to being involved in sextrafficking and pushing the victim into prostitution,” a senior RPF official told Mirror, adding that Raju Rafiz Sheikh, who sold the victim for sex at a hotel in Ulhasnagar and then at Grant Road on November 9, is on the run. The accused Rahim Sheikh has confessed to forcing four other women into flesh trade.
He was handed over to GRP Kalyan for further action. According to railway sources, there were chances of further arrests and rescue operations last night.

Hit by Diwali crackers, Thane boy loses right eye, Ulhasnagar girl suffers from partial vision
Updated: Nov 11, 2018, 13:19 IST
Dr Lahane of JJ hospital says both kids suffered corneal tear after foreign particles entered eyes during bursting of crackers; in Vinay’s case, crucial time was wasted as he was brought to hospital three days later.
A 13-year-old boy has lost his right eye while a girl of same age has suffered partial vision loss in her left eye after sustaining serious injuries during bursting of crackers on Diwali.
The two — Vinay Keni from Thane and Reshma Khaire from Ulhasnagar —are among the 12 children who were rushed to JJ hospital in the last three days with eye injuries caused by firecrackers.
According to Dr TP Lahane, senior ophthalmologist at JJ, both Vinay and Reshma suffered corneal tear as foreign particles entered their eyes. But in Vinay’s case, the damages were severe, costing him his eye.
Sadly enough, the child wasn’t even bursting crackers, but was watching his friend doing it.
“Vinay was brought to the hospital on Saturday — three days after he sustained the injury. Blood and puss had accumulated in his right eye. The cornea was severely damaged. We are suspecting that a stone chip hit his eye, tearing the cornea. The cracker must have been tied to a stone,” Dr Lahane told Mirror.
He rued that they couldn’t save Vinay’s eye despite giving their best. “The damage had been done by the time he was rushed here. He was not provided proper treatment by local doctors in the initial hours after sustaining the injury. Crucial time got wasted. We first tried replacing his damaged cornea with an artificial one, which didn’t work. We then went for donated cornea transplant but that too failed. His eye ball had been badly damaged due to infection. Vinay has lost 100 per cent vision in his right eye,” Dr Lahane added.
Fortunately, Reshma was brought to the hospital on time. “She too suffered corneal tear but not that serious like Vinay. We sutured the tear, thus managing to save her vision, but in such injuries, patients will not get back 100 per cent vision. I am sad to say that she will have partial vision in her left eye for life,” he added.
According to her mother, the girl was bursting crackers with her sister. But she couldn’t say how she sustained the injury.
As for the other children brought to the hospital, Dr Lahane said that they had suffered minor injuries like bleeding, burns around eyes and small particles lodged in eyes. They were released after first aid. “Every year, we get three to four cases of children turning partially blind due to cracker injuries. I would advise parents to be more cautious and monitor their children while they are bursting crackers or watching it,” he added.

Gang that turned wine to wealth stopped in its tracks
UPDATED: NOVEMBER 09, 2018 23:55 IST
Robbers would target wine shop collection agents in Kalyan-Ulhasnagar; kingpin was a historysheeter who worked as an agent while on bail
The few droplets he earned as a collection agent for a wine shop did little to slake Haresh Goswami’s thirst. He collected a few people and formed a gang to rob liquor wholesalers’ collection agents on their way back with the day’s earnings in the Kalyan-Ulhasnagar area.
It helped that Mr. Goswami was not new to the business of crime. He has several offences, including a murder case, registered against him in the Thane Police commissionerate, said Thane Crime Branch officers.
Around a year ago, after securing bail in the latest case against him, he went to work as a collection agent for a wine shop in Kalyan. He used the time to study his potential victims and made mental notes. His employer, he observed, would make lakhs of rupees every day from the various bars in the Kalyan-Ulhasnagar area.
On the other hand, Mr. Goswami would travel with no security whatsoever and pass through several secluded areas on his way back to the shop, an officer with the Unit III of the Thane Crime Branch said.
Mr. Goswami got in touch with some of his old associates and formed a gang. They struck gold in January this year, robbing a collection agent of ₹6.5 lakh near RR Hospital in Kalyan.
Executed with care
The crime was executed with care; the idea was to confuse the collection agent. Senior Police Inspector Sanju John said, “Two vehicles with four men in it were driving ahead of the agent, while a third vehicle was following him. The robbers were all in touch with each other through their cell phones. At the pre-decided spot, one of the two vehicles in front of the target, which had Mr. Goswami in it, blocked his path. Mr. Goswami and his aide got off and hit the agent on the head with an iron rod, rendering him unconscious. The robbers in the car behind took his bag and the accused fled the scene. When the agent regained consciousness and approached the police, he said only two men had robbed him.”
On October 31 this year, a similar robbery took place at the same spot, where another collection agent was robbed, again of ₹6.5 lakh. As the area is secluded, identifying the accused was a challenge for the police.
Mr. John said, “We traced the victim’s movements through the CCTV cameras at the spots he visited, and identified two men who were seen following him. With the help of informants, we identified two of them as Mr. Goswami and Ganesh Sonawane, who were arrested over the past three days, along with four other accomplices. Three others are wanted in the case.”
The accused have been charged with dacoity under the Indian Penal Code, and have been remanded in police custody till Saturday.

Describing the modus operandi of the gang, police said that they used to waylay the wine shop employees, who were on way to deposit the collection of cash for the day at the head office in the night, and beat them up before fleeing from the spot with the stolen cash.

Firecracker deadline violated but noise levels plummet in Mumbai and Thane
Police phone lines were constantly busy as troubled citizens made calls to complain about deadline violations in their areas
November 8, 2018
UPDATED: November 8, 2018 21:24 IST
Many people in Mumbai did not obey the Supreme Court order on bursting firecrackers only between 8 pm and 10 pm as they continued their festive celebrations even after midnight on Thursday.
Police were busy attending to calls from citizens who were complaining of loud noises in their area. Even social media feeds were full of complaints from citizens about firecrackers being burst well past midnight.
Mumbai Police spokesperson Manjunath Shinge maintained that Mumbai Police did its best to enforce the Supreme Court order. He added that data collation from all 94 police stations in Mumbai will take some time and number of complaints attended will be clear after that.
The situation in Thane city and district was somewhat similar to that of Mumbai.
Sarita Khanchandani, a resident of Ulhasnagar in Thane, said she contacted police control room and requested then to stop people who were bursting firecrackers near her residence after the deadline.
"My house is about 3 to 4 minutes' distance away from the police station, I kept requesting them to send someone. But the policeman told me that they are short staffed," she said.
She said that loud noises stopped only around 2 am.
Khanchandani runs a group called Hirali Foundation. When she measured noise level from inside her house, she found that it was over 100 decibels.
She added that people were bursting firecrackers in areas in Ulhasnagar like Jhulelal Mandir till 4 am in the morning. Noise levels there was between 93 and 114 decibels.
Dr Mahesh Bedekar, a resident of Thane city who had filed a PIL about the same issue in Bombay High Court, has been monitoring noise levels in the city for the last five years. He said that although noise levels came down this year, there was a sudden surge between 7 pm and 10 pm when the levels touched 110 decibels. He also observed that though firecrackers were indeed being burst after 10 pm the number of such instances was low this time around.
"We cannot expect police to reach everywhere. It is the responsibility of each citizen," said Bedekar.
Awaaz Foundation, the organisation which measures noise levels in different parts of Mumbai, noted that the city was comparatively less noisy this year, but only just.
Sanjay Salunkhe from the foundation said that police took action against those bursting firecrackers at Mumbai's Marine Drive after 10 pm deadline on Wednesday. He said that the noise levels there were around 114.1 decibels, slightly lower than 117.8 decibels last year.
Awaaz Foundation also found that none of the firecrackers they tested were 'green firecrackers', the use of which was made compulsory by the Supreme Court. Foundation's own reports say that there are high levels of toxic chemicals in these firecrackers.

Drivers, conductors caught dancing, riding bikes after claiming severe disabilities
Updated: Nov 6, 2018, 10:07 IST
While they submitted certificates citing over 40 per cent disability to claim ‘lighter duty’, videos expose the lies.
Sting operations conducted by Brihanmumbai Electric Supply and Transport (BEST) on its own employees have revealed how some drivers and conductors have been faking disabilities to get lighter duties. After three employees were caught on video faking their injuries, BEST has started investigations on 400 bus drivers and conductors who are currently on ‘lighter duty’ claiming over 40 per cent disability.
Videos accessed by Mumbai Mirror of a BEST conductor and a driver who had submitted certificates claiming over 40 per cent permanent disability reveal their lies.
Jeevan Lagas, 44, a bus driver posted at Dharavi bus depot, had joined BEST in September 2011. In 2016, he went on leave claiming that he had suffered a stroke, due to which he was paralysed on the left side. When he came back, he applied for lighter duty and produced a certificate issued by the additional civil surgeon of state-run Central hospital in Ulhasnagar which said that he suffered from hemiparesis, or unilateral paresis, which is weakness of one side of the body.
However, the BEST’s medical board was not convinced and asked him to produce MRI or CT scan report to establish his claim.
The board also examined him and found him to be fit and refused to give him lighter duty.
“His claims are all a lie. There was no record of his admission or treatment in the Ulhasnagar hospital,” said an officer of the vigilance team.
As the team wanted solid proof of their suspicions, they called Lagas to come to their Colaba headquarters and submit a few reports on June 6, 2018. Cameras were placed to capture his movements, said the investigating officer.

Mumbai: Policeman beaten up over petty parking row in Naigaon
Updated Nov 06, 2018
Police constable Suraj Kamble, on driver’s duty for Assistant Commissioner of Police (ACP), Arvind Khandenkar, at Naigaon Police headquarters was whipped by miscreants after a verbal spat.
Mumbai: In an unabashed case of violence that reared its head in Naigaon over a petty issue, a police constable was beaten up over parking of his two-wheeler. Police constable Suraj Kamble, on driver’s duty for Assistant Commissioner of Police (ACP), Arvind Khandenkar, at Naigaon Police headquarters was whipped by miscreants after a verbal spat.
Taking cognisance of the matter, Bhoiwada police have registered a case against the three people who resorted to violence. On the evening of November 2, Suraj Kamble, a resident of Worli, had gone out for shopping with his friend Pravin Kamble. They parked their two-wheeler at the Ugaayana Lok Seva Sangh High School in Naigaon.
Meanwhile, a stranger asked them to remove the vehicle but when Kamble was taking the bike out, the stranger used abusive words for the constable and his friend.
What ensued was a verbal spat between the two parties and as matters escalated, the stranger started beating up Kamble and soon after, two more people came and they also beat up Kamble.

उल्हासनगर के नेहरू चौक मार्केट में स्थित पटाखे की दुकानों से लोगों में भय व्याप्त है। स्थानीय लोगों का आरोप है कि भीड़भाड़ वाला इलाका होने के बावजूद यहां पटाखे की दुकानें सजी हैं। यहां अगर कोई हादसा हुआ तो कई लोगों की जान जा सकती है।
स्थानीय लोगों की मानें तो यहां कपड़ा मार्केट, इलेक्ट्रॉनिक मार्केट, फर्नीचर मार्केट है और यहां महाराष्ट्र के अन्य इलाकों से भी लोग खरीदारी करने आते हैं। इससे यहां काफी भीड़ रहती है। ट्रैफिक पुलिस ने यहां बड़े वाहनों के प्रवेश पर रोक लगा रखी है। ऐसे में, यहां भीड़ के बीच पटाखों की दुकानों के कारण लोग खुद को असुरक्षित महसूस कर रहे हैं। सूत्रों के अनुसार, इन दुकानदारों के पास महज कुछ पटाखे रखने का लाइसेंस है, लेकिन यहां भारी मात्रा में अवैध तरीके से आतिशबाजी का कारोबार हो रहा है। देर रात तक चलने वाली इन दुकानों पर मनपा और पुलिस प्रशासन भी कोई कार्रवाई नहीं कर रहा है। उल्हासनगर नेहरू चौक पर सैकड़ों दुकानें हैं, जो बिना लाइसेंस के चलती हैं। गजानन मार्केट में सामान लेने आते हैं। इसी रास्ते से गुजरते हैं कभी भी कोई अनहोनी घटना घट सकती है, लेकिन प्रशासन इस पर ध्यान नहीं दे रहा है। इससे पहले कि कोई हादसा हो, प्रशासन को देखना चाहिए कि दुकानदार नियमों का पालन कर रहे हैं या नहीं।
स्थानीय रहिवाशी अनिल ने कहा कि कई बार शिकायतें करने के बावजूद मनपा और पुलिस प्रशासन कोई ऐक्शन नहीं ले रहा, जिससे लगता है कि इन सबकी मिलीभगत से सारा कारोबार चल रहा है।

Ulhasnagar Traders Are Making Fake Order On Amazon, To Invite Ban & Force People To Buy Local
Updated: November 01, 2018
E-commerce sites like Amazon and Flipkart provide some of the best deals you can get, for everything from electronics, to clothes, to groceries.
Which is exactly why brick and mortar store owners don't like them very much for taking all their business.
That sentiment has grown to such an extent in Ulhasnagar, near Mumbai, that local traders are ready to embark on a troll campaign against these companies. They're going to place hundreds of fake orders to Amazon in bulk, in the hopes the ecommerce portal will blacklist the whole town.
The traders are unhappy at the losses they've been facing, despite the Diwali shopping season just around the corner. After all, online portals can offer much heavier discounts than they can. So in a meeting on Monday, as reported by Times of India, they decided to bury Amazon in fake orders. These will be placed in bulk, all with cash on delivery payment, and then cancelled mid way.
"If there a huge number of rejections from a particular area, then online stores will automatically block the area code for sale," one trader told TOI.

2 firemen who died in well tragedy were feted for work

KALYAN: The two firemen —Ananta Shelar (48) and Pramod Waghchaure (44)—who died while trying to save three people from a toxic Kalyan well on Thursday were known and feted for their good work in the department.
Two years ago, KDMC had rewarded Shelar for rescuing a man from a major fire in Ulhasnagar while Waghchaure had once saved former Thane collector Dr Mahendra Kalyankar from Kalyan creek after the boat he was in capsized. Kalyankar was visiting the creek for a water transport project.
Their colleagues said the two always led during any natural calamity—be it drowning, tree fall or fire incidents.
Families and relatives of the two firemen have demanded that they be honoured as martyrs. They have also demanded KDMC jobs for their wives.
Ganesh Shelar, Ananta Shelar’s nephew, said, “We want KDMC to give a job to my aunt Anjali since now she has two bear the responsibility of her two sons. The elder son Jayesh (21) is preparing for his MPSC exam and the younger, Omkar (18), is studying for his HSC.”
Waghchaure is survived by wife Deepali, son Durgesh (7) and daughter Richa (17). Both children are in school. Deepak Sonawane, a relative, said, “Pramod was known for his good work and now his family has lost everything. KDMC should give them a job to compensate for their loss.”
Among the other three victims, the police said deceased labourer Kamlesh Yadav’s family is yet to claim his body.
Gunwant Goswami’s family said before his death, he had twice suffered heart attacks.
The Goswami family has lived in Kalyan for over 100 years and looked after Bhima Shankar Temple as pujaris.
The family has demanded action against KDMC for the deaths. Bhavik, Gunwant’s nephew, said, “We want action against KDMC for delayed nullah work... We had given a contract to a water maintenance company for the cleanup work which had sent Yadav for the job. ”
