2017-05-23The Barbaric Torture Of Two Boys In Ulhasnagar Is A New Low Even For India - Huffington Post India
The Barbaric Torture Of Two Boys In Ulhasnagar Is A New Low Even For India 23/05/2017 5:34 PM IST It could have been a scene from a sentimental Bollywood tearjerker from a few decades ago. Except that it was it happening in the 21st century, on the streets of the world's largest democracy. A couple of kids are caught stealing food from a roadside stall. They are apprehended and humiliated by a group of adults, who give them a sound thrashing to teach them a lesson. At this point in the cinematic version, a hero, usually an angry young man, comes to their rescue. The bad guys are beaten black and blue, the little ones go home shedding tears of relief and contrition. All is well with the world. Cut to the reality: a similar, or rather much worse, scene unfolded in an Indian city on Monday. And no, there wasn't any knight in shining armour around to save the two little boys at the receiving end of the barbaric rage of a mob. The victims, aged 8 and 9, had allegedly stolen a piece of chakli, a local snack, from a shop in Ulhasnagar, Thane, where they live with their mothers. One report claimed they had fed the item, which costs ?2, to a stray dog. But the price of their mistake was immeasurable. It deprived them of their dignity and crushed their innocence forever. Who knows if the treatment they received at the hands of the adults also planted the germ of revenge in their young minds? Too often, injustice begets injustice, rather than forgiveness or large-heartedness. Hell broke loose as soon as the boys were caught red-handed. The shopkeeper and his sons descended on them in their full fury, tonsured them, made a garland of their footwear and put it around their necks, hit them mercilessly, and paraded them naked in public. That was not all. The entire spectacle was recorded on a cell-phone camera and uploaded on social media, presumably for the benefit of those who weren't around to partake of the fun and games; perhaps also as a cautionary tale for future transgressors. It's a harrowing few seconds to watch till the end — even for those hardcore WhatsApp addicts used to consuming casual brutalities circulated on the platform every day. Later, the boys' mothers, who are daily wage-earners bringing them up on their own, complained to the police, following which the three accused were booked for assault, voluntarily causing hurt, and also under the Protection of Children from Sexual Offences Act. Since the boys belong to a backward community, the police may file another case based on sections of the Scheduled Castes and Tribes (Prevention of Atrocities Act). The only silver lining in this unremittingly gloomy episode is perhaps the prompt action taken by the police. It's not often in this country that victims from socially disadvantaged backgrounds muster the courage to go to the police. For such a 'bold' step usually adds to their miseries instead of alleviating them. It's even rarer for the law-enforcers to act so expediently on a complaint lodged by a such 'persons of no importance'. But the demographic diversity of the area may have influenced the police's quick response. They perhaps acted in order to forestall any major communal flare up. According to a report, in Ulhasnagar, the slums are divided along religious lines, with houses painted indigo and green. A line runs between the communities that coexist in an atmosphere fraught with tension. While it's possible to assume that the atrocities perpetrated on these children were sparked by moral outrage and a need to set a harsh example, it's hard not to link it with the social strata from which they came. It's easy to hurt those who are weaker than us: in this case, the victims were doubly weaker, in terms of their station in life as well as age and biology. The barbarity that unfolded in Ulhasnagar is of a piece with the current mood of wild justice, dispensed by a rampaging mob that seems to have a free hand. The bloodier the retribution, the louder the roar of the public's approval: case in point, the waves of celebration around the upholding of the death penalty in the Nirbhaya verdict. Nothing but the scent of blood pleases the crowds. Examples abound. What individuals consume in the privacy of their homes is everyone's business now. A group of thugs may well barge into your kitchen, sniff around for contraband meat in your fridge, and bludgeon you to death, should their suspicions are aroused. A dairy farmer ferrying cattle in a van may be stopped on the way and lynched by vigilantes, claiming to be avowed protectors of the bovine species. Dalits, who make a living by disposing the carcass of cattle, may be tied up and assaulted in broad daylight — again, on the suspicion of being cow-slaughterers. What the boys in Ulhasnagar have faced only adds to this inglorious parade of monstrosities, one that only the most self-centred government would choose to ignore at grave peril to its stability.

Sweet shop shock: children 'stripped, heads shaved' Three arrested after pair were allegedly paraded naked for stealing snack By ASIA TIMES STAFF MAY 23, 2017 12:01 AM (UTC+8) Two children aged eight and nine were allegedly stripped, tonsured and paraded wearing a string of slippers, after being accused of stealing a food item from a shop in a community near Mumbai on Sunday. The shopkeeper recorded the episode in Ulhasnagar on a mobile phone. Mehmood Pathan, 69, the shop owner, and his two sons, Irfan, 25, and Tavakkal, 20, were arrested and remanded in police custody until May 23, after a complaint was filed by the mother of one of the boys. According to the Times of India, the incident took place when the boys were playing near their home in the Prem Nagar area of Ulhasnagar. They walked up to the neighborhood sweet shop owned by Mehmood and allegedly took a packet of chaklis, a pretzel-like snack made of rice flour, and ate it. “As the children’s mother was away, to quench their hunger, they took two chaklis, which were barely worth Rs2, from a jar in the shop and ate them. When Mehmood came to know about it, he was furious and slapped them. He also called his sons to teach the children a lesson,” an officer from Hill Line police station was quoted as saying. The Hindustan Times reported that the trio then took the children to a nearby barber’s shop and had their heads shaved, stripped them naked and assaulted them. They made the children wear a string of shoes and paraded them in Ulhasnagar camp no.5. A huge crowd gathered but no one intervened, media reports said. The three have been booked under Indian Penal Code sections 355 for assault, 500 for defamation and 323 for injury, and also under the Protection of Children from Sexual Offences Act.

2017-05-22Boys tonsured, stripped, paraded in Ulhasnagar: It was all in fun, why did they go to police, says Accused's kin - The Indian Express
Boys tonsured, stripped, paraded in Ulhasnagar: It was all in fun, why did they go to police, says Accused’s kin Mumbai | Published:May 23, 2017 2:00 am Pleading innocence of her husband and sons, the wife of Mehmood Pathan, the shopkeeper arrested with his two sons for tonsuring, stripping and parading two boys in Ulhasnagar on Sunday, said they committed the act in good humour. “Humne toh masti-mazaak mein kiya tha. Police mein jaane ki kya zaroorat thi (It was all in fun. Why did they have to go to the police)?” said Pathan’s wife, who did not wish to be named. She said had the mothers of the boys approached them instead of the police, the matter would have been amicably resolved. “These kids often came to the store and picked up something or the other. We all live harmoniously, I don’t know why my family is being targeted,” she said. Pathan and his sons Irfan and Tawakkal were arrested on Sunday and booked under sections of the IPC and Protection of Children from Sexual Offences (POCSO) Act. Senior inspector Mohan Waghmare said in addition to POCSO and IPC sections, they have added sections of the atrocities Act. The accused were remanded in police custody until Tuesday, said officers attached to the Hill Line police station. Divided along religious lines, the slums in Prem Nagar, Ulhasnagar, were quieter than usual, a day after the video of the boys, stripped, garlanded with slippers and paraded, went viral. On Monday, there were no children playing around a massive water-storage container, where most of them are seen everyday. With increased police presence, local residents said it had become difficult to get an auto-rickshaw to their houses from the Ulhasnagar railway station. The houses in the slums are coloured either indigo or green. A line runs right between the slums, cautiously dividing the residents . It has been this way for decades, locals say. However, tension has never run higher, according to some residents. At a time like this, each side alleged discrimination on the grounds of religion and caste. “Our family has been targeted because of our caste. The witnesses in the case are all from the same caste as the complainants and they are making false statements about my family,” Pathan’s wife said. The three accused had “punished” the boys for allegedly stealing a chakli costing Rs 2 from their grocery shop and feeding it to a stray dog. The shop has been closed since the incident. The mothers of the two boys, aged eight and nine, however, said Pathan and his family had gone too far. “We have been here for more than 25 years,” said one of them. “Kids are kids, they make mistakes. We have all shoplifted, but this is inhumane. I am glad nobody’s daughter was involved, otherwise who knows what they would have done to her?” said the mother of the nine-year-old. Both the boys are being raised by single mothers working as domestic helps. They were out at work when the incident occurred. “I had stepped out to buy groceries, when I saw the kids undressed and getting shaved,” said an eyewitness, who is a neighbour. “I ran to call one of their mothers, but by the time we reached Pathan’s shop, the kids were already being paraded around,” the woman said. The two boys remained quiet and by the side of their mothers on Monday. Otherwise cheerful, the children shied away even from their neighbours and familiar faces. While the nine-year-old had fever, the other one kept scratching at the scab on his forehead. “Both of them used to be very playful, but have completely changed since the event,” said the older boy’s mother. Both of them have stepped out of their 30 sq-ft room only once since they were subjected to the humiliation. Both have visible scars from the tonsuring, which, according to the police, was carried out using a blunt blade. The mothers of the boys want to see Pathan and his sons punished for their acts. “We hope they are brought to book for their crimes and this serves as a deterrent to anyone even thinking of such actions in the future,” said the nine-year-old’s mother.

"While surfing the portal, Abhilash saw an advertisement for hotel staff. He applied, and within a few days he got call that he had been selected. A man called up Abhilash and told him to deposit Rs 31,250 for documentation and medical tests," said an officer. Abhilash deposited the amount in an account and waited for several days, only to realise that he had been duped. He then lodged a police complaint. Police found that the mobile number through which the person had called Abhilash was registered in the name of Shabnam Ahmed. But he was unaware of any sim card in his name. Police then found the account in which the complainant deposited the money belonged to Ramchandani, who posed as Kishore Melwani. Police said Ramchandani was among many Indians who helped Nigerians in the scam. Police came across several other bank transactions worth more than Rs 1 crore, indicating they have cheated many more.

Not stopping at that, they allegedly stripped the minors, made them wear garlands of slippers and paraded them on the street as punishment. Annoyed over the humiliation and mistreatment of the children, their parents, who reside in the same locality, lodged a complaint with the Hill Line police. Based on the complaint, Mehmood and his sons Irfan (26) and Salim (22) were arrested around midnight, police said. The trio was booked under IPC Sections 355 (assault or criminal force with intent to dishonour person), 500 (defamation) and 323 (voluntarily causing hurt), and also under the Protection of Children from Sexual Offences Act, they added.

2017-05-18Mumbai: Nalasopara couple battle rape case, pregnancy; now fight for kid - Mid-Day
Mumbai: Nalasopara couple first battle rape case, pregnancy; now fight to get kid back By Samiullah Khan Posted 1 hour Boyfriend booked for rape and girl who got pregnant just before 18th b'day battle to get child from orphanage The couple, after getting married in Bandra court on May 15, is now fighting for the custody of their boy, who is with the CWC. In love with each other since their teens, this Nalasopara couple has gone through it all parental opposition over their inter-faith union, elopement, pregnancy, birth of the love child, kidnapping and rape case against the youth, and eventual separation. But they fought it all and got married a few days ago, as the girl turned 18 in April. And yet, a happy ending eludes them. They are now fighting to be reunited with their child, who was taken from them and given to the Child Welfare Committee when the two were separated and sent off to different ashrams. The Nalasopara couple has been running from pillar to post to get custody of their baby boy, who is in the care of the Child Welfare Committee (CWC) in Ulhasnagar, visiting the Tulinj police station almost daily, only to be disappointed everyday. Childhood sweethearts: The girl, who turned 18 in April this year, and the youth (23), a mechanic, have been in love since she was 14. In June last year, the two eloped, after which her family lodged a case of kidnapping against the youth, as she was still a minor then. The Tulinj police nabbed them after 20 days, sending the girl to her parents and putting the youth behind bars. The two were also sent for a medical check-up, which revealed that the girl was four months pregnant. The police then added the charge of rape and other relevant sections under the POCSO Act against the youth. After 15 days of incarceration, the youth managed to get bail. The girl's parents, however, did everything in their power to keep her home and not allow them to reunite. In December last year, she gave birth to a boy. Worried about her running away again and things going out of their hands over the fact that she would be considered an adult, the girl's parents sent her off to an ashram in Valiv, Vasai (East), as soon as she turned 18 in April. They also took the police's help in sending the youth off to a different ashram in Ulhasnagar, while the infant was handed over to the CWC. On May 13, the girl got out of the correction home, and the two got married in Bandra family court on May 15. And now, with everything in order legally, they say, they have been running around to get their boy back. Not without their son"The Tulinj police misled me. On the pretext of getting a DNA test done, they called me and took my signature on a piece of paper, and then, sent me off to the ashram. I was already a major then. They have given my child to the CWC, which is wrong," she alleged. "Now, the CWC is refusing to give my boy back. We have gone and met the officials several times, but they are not ready to listen to anything." The youth said, "We did court marriage. Now, we just want to live together peacefully. We just want our boy back. We have been to the Tulinj police station many times, but they aren't helping either." "There is a procedure to get the child back. I am helping the couple," said advocate Anjali Patil, who helped to get the youth out after he was arrested. The couple has been running around to get the custody of their baby boy. Officialspeak: When contacted, CWC chairperson Meenal Thakur said, "It is a very sensitive issue. The accused married the victim while out on bail. What is the guarantee that he is not doing all this just to get a discharge from the rape case registered against him? Also, there is no assurance that he won't divorce her later." CWC officials said that if the youth abandoned the girl, the child would end up on the streets, and hence, it was in the baby's best interests if he were kept in their custody.

Dentist blew up 8 lakh stolen by girlfriend on betting TNN | Updated: May 8, 2017, 06.03 AM IST ULHASNAGAR: A 20-year-old BCom student stole Rs 8 lakh worth jewellery and valuables from her home and gave the booty to her Pune-based boyfriend to help him set up a dental clinic. But he blew it up on betting at horse races, police said. Police say the girl had met Vinay Dhoble, a 34-year-old dentist by training, at a wedding in Dombivli a few months ago, after which they became friends on Facebook. Dhoble apparently told the girl he wanted money to set up a dental clinic so that he could be financially independent and marry her. Taken in by his assurances, she started stealing valuables from her home. Dhoble, who comes from a well-off family, had met the girl at least 10 times at Kalyan railway station, where he would ask her to come with valuables. He would sell the valuables to jewellers in Kalyan and spend the money on betting at horse races in Pune, police said. On Saturday, when cops, along with the girl, visited Dhoble's house in Khadaki area in Pune, he was missing. Police said Dhoble's parents were shocked to learn about him cheating his girlfriend. The crime came to light when the girl's parents found valuables missing from home and confronted her. Initially, she told her parents that two armed burglars had broken into their home, tied her up and fled with the valuables a few days earlier. Her father, who runs a garage, filed a complaint with Vithalwadi police. Cops doubted the girl's story and asked her whether she had made it all up. The girl finally admitted the truth, saying she had stolen the valuables to help her boyfriend in his business. The police said their team is still in Pune. They now also suspect that the accused might have cheated others girls too. Mohan Waghmare, senior inspector of Hill Line police, said, "Once we arrest the suspect, we will investigate if he cheated any other girl similarly."

Hotel employee shot at; note blames gangster Updated: May 8, 2017, 05.37 AM IST MUMBAI: The captain of a fine dining restaurant-cum-hotel at Nalasopara, who was manning the reception counter, was shot at on Sunday afternoon. The shooter left behind a handwritten note with 'Gangster Suresh Pujari' scribbled on it. Dilip Varma (26), who works at Galaxy, was hit on the chest. The suspect has been captured on the hotel's closed circuit television (CCTV). The footage shows a man in a white shirt and cap entering a little after 1 pm. Varma, a resident of Kargil Nagar in Virar (E) is at the counter, when the suspect puts his hand in his right trouser pocket and waits. A few men walk in and out of the hotel. Varma's attention is drawn towards the suspect and he offers to help him. Just when he says in Marathi 'Bola (tell me)', the suspect pulls the trigger and throws a white paper with his left hand. The note has Pujari's name scribbled in English in blue ink. The suspect then runs out of the hotel. The 40-second footage has been retrieved by police, who suspect that dropping the fugitive gangster's name may be to mislead them. Pujari, who is believed to be operating from the Middle East, has allegedly been threatening and extorting money from builders in Kalyan-Dombivli and Ulhasnagar. Police are questioning the hotel owners to know if there have been extortion calls from Pujari or any other gangster. Police are also examining CCTV footage of the vicinity for information on whether the suspect came on foot or had used a vehicle. Some people told police that the shooter was seen sitting pillion on a waiting motorbike, indicating that there could have been more than one person. Police have still to record the statement of Varma, who is being treated at Mira Road's Wockhardt hospital.

Cops finds small cabins used by couples for privacy inside juice bars Mumbai news Mumbai crime Eman Ahmed From outside, the juice centres look innocuous Lovebirds in Ulhasnagar might find themselves deprived of sweet nothings after the Ulhasnagar Municipal Corporation (UMC) took a hammer to their favourite haunts, juice centres that offered more than just a cold drink. Civic authorities carried out demolitions in three centres after finding secret cavities that were meeting spots for couples. This comes just a week after the civic body carried out demolitions at orchestra bars with similar secret rooms, used to hide the waitresses who were employed there. Inside, they offer a private space to couples. All three juice parlours, Rajlaxmi Juice Centre, Suraj Juice Centre and Om Sai Ram Juice Centre are located near the Ulhasnagar station skywalk. Om Sai Ram juice centre is innocuous looking Forbidden loveSources from the UMC said that the secret cabins were used as love nests by young, college-going couples. The exteriors of the centers look innocuous since the cabins are hidden from the view of passers-by. Inside, however, the shops are crammed with at least 10 booths, each of them seat two people at a time. While Suraj juice centre's booths were partially open, the Rajlaxmi and Om Sai Ram parlours offered complete privacy, as the booths also had doors. The secret stalls are even fitted with fans, in case it gets too hot. Inside, it housed cabins cooled off by fans. Officials said a lack of privacy has earlier driven couples to spend alone time on the skywalk. But after the police had cracked down, the juice centres had turned into new hubs. Local residents tipped off municipal commissioner Sudhakar Shinde, who initiated action on Saturday. Officialspeak Yuraj Badane, assistant municipal commissioner and public relations officer for UMC, said, "We received complaints from a few alert residents, after which we conducted the raid and found the claim to be true. On Saturday, we demolished the secret cabins; they can’t be erected again. We have found more than 10 secret cabins at each centre. The price of a glass of juice here is higher than at other centers."

Mumbai: Hotel staffer shot at by man claiming to be Suresh Pujari gang member Sandhya Nair | TNN | Updated: May 7, 2017, 05.21 PM IST MUMBAI: The captain of a fine dining restaurant cum hotel in Nalasopara who was manning the reception counter was shot at by an unidentified person on Sunday afternoon. The shooter left behind a handwritten note with the name of 'Gangster Suresh Pujari' scribbled on it. The victim Dilip Varma (26) who works as a captain at Galaxy family restaurant, bar and hotel was hit on the chest. One shot was fired at him by the suspect who has been captured on the closed circuit television (CCTV) of the hotel. The footage shows a man wearing white shirt and cap entering the hotel little after 1 pm. Varma, a resident of Kargil Nagar in Virar (east) is seen at the reception counter. The suspect is seen putting his hand in his right trouser pocket and waiting near the counter. A few men are seen walking in and out of the hotel. Varma's attention goes towards the suspect and he offers to help him. Just when he says in Marathi 'Bola' (tell me) the suspect pulls the trigger and leaves behind a white paper using his left hand. The note has Pujari's name scribbled with blue ink. The suspect is seen running out of the hotel. The entire 40 seconds footage has been retrieved by the Nalasopara police who suspect that dropping fugitive gangster Pujari's name may be to mislead them. Pujari who is believed to be operating from the Middle East has reportedly been threatening and extorting money from builders in Kalyan-Dombivli and Ulhasnagar. Police is questioning the hotel owners to know if there has been any extortion calls from Pujari or any other gangster. Police are also examining CCTV footages of the vicinity to get information on whether the suspect came on foot or had used a vehicle.

2017-05-06Girl detained for 'stealing' Rs 8 lakh worth valuables from own home - Times of India
Girl detained for 'stealing' Rs 8 lakh worth valuables from own home TNN | May 6, 2017, 11.47 PM IST ULHASNAGAR: A 20-year-old B.Com college student from Ulhasnagar allegedly stole jewellery and other valuables worth Rs 8 lakh from her own home to "help out" her 34-year-old Pune-based boyfriend, whom she had recently befriended on Facebook. She was detained on Friday and a police team left for Pune on Saturday to bring him to the city. The girl fabricated a lie and told her father that a few days ago two burglars had broken into their home, tied her up and fled with the valuables. When her father asked why she had not mentioned the crime, the girl said she could not muster the courage to tell anyone about it. Her father, who runs a garage, immediately filed a police complaint at the local Vithalwadi police station. Cops doubted the girl's story due to contradictions in her statement and asked her point-blank whether she had made it all up. The girl finally admitted to the truth, saying she had stolen the valuables to help her Pune-based boyfriend in his business. Based on her statement, police booked the girl, Shanti, and her boyfriend, Vikas, under Indian Penal Code sections 406 for criminal breach of trust and 34 for common intention. Cops learned that Shanti met Vikas on Facebook two months ago and they got into a relationship. Vikas soon began to ask Shanti for money on the pretext of starting a business and cited financial problems at home. An investigating officer told TOI: "Over the past two months, the accused stole three bracelets, seven gold rings, seven bangles and other valuables and handed them to Vikas." The incident came to light on Friday morning after the girl's father opened the locker at home and found all the valuables gone.
