Thane: 601 fell ill after release of chemical waste Thane(Maha), Nov 30, 2014 (PTI) 16:57 IST As many as 601 residents of Ulhasnagar area here were hospitalised after they experienced breathing problems following release of a hazardous chemical in a water stream apparently after a chemical tanker was cleaned there, a senior official said today. "A total of 601 people were admitted in five hospitals yesterday and except a few, all others have been discharged," Ulhasnagar Municipal Corporation Commissioner Balaji Khatgaonkar told PTI today over phone. The affected people, after they complained of breathing problems, burning sensation in the eyes and giddiness problems yesterday, were admitted to the Central hospital, Kamgar hospital, Trimurti hospital, Sadanand hospital and Shivneri hospital. As of now, 23 people are admitted in Kamgar hospital and 11 in Central hospital. They will be discharged by today evening, he said. The hazardous material first got mixed in a stream in neighbouring Ambernath. When this polluted water while flowing reached Ulhasnagar, the people living near Waldhuni river started experiencing some side-effects yesterday like giddiness and burning sensation in the eyes, he said. "Ulhasnagar Municipal Corporation, police personnel and officials of the Maharashtra Pollution Control Board sprung into action as soon as we got information of this toxic material which, on mixing with water had turned into a poisonous gas and created panic among the people living in the periphery of the water body," he said. Efforts were made to ensure that those affected were given medical aid immediately, he added. Ambernath police had yesterday registered a case against unidentified persons under sections 277 (fouling water of reservoir or public spring) and 278 (making atmosphere noxious to health) of the IPC. Empty chemical tankers are usually cleaned at the spot from where the hazardous waste is suspected to have entered the river, police had earlier said. Ulhasnagar tehsildar Varsha Pawar demanded a ban on cleaning of the chemical tankers near the river and also to stop release of chemical waste from industrial areas of Ambernath into the water body.

Poisonous Gas Puts 500 Lives In Danger In Ulhasnagar Nov 30, 2014, 05:20 IST 500 Ulhasnagar Residents Complain Of Nausea And Respiratory Problems After Alleged Dumping Of Chemicals In The Ulhas River; Cops Have Filed An FIR Against The Unknown Accused On Saturday morning, Ulhasnagar residents woke up feeling nauseous, giddy, and suffering from severe headache, vomiting, respiratory problems and indigestion.The cause? Tankers had allegedly dumped poisonous chemicals in the Ulhas River around 2.30 am. The Ulhasnagar Central Hospital and four other hospitals had a hectic morning as they had to deal with a constant inflow of patients. A team of four specialists from JJ Hospital were also dispatched to attend to the patients. Ambarnath police, under whose jurisdiction the area falls, have already filed a First Incident Report (FIR) against unknown individuals, since the accused are yet to be identified. Poisonous vapours One of the patients, Deepak Nupe, kept under observation at Ulhasnagar Central Hospital said, “I was on my way to work when I saw two people from my neighbourhood pass out. Till the time I could reach out to help, it became difficult for me to breath and I, too, fainted. Next thing I remember is waking up in the hospital.” At the last count, more than 500 people had received treatment at various hospitals. Dr Ashok Nandapurkar, civil surgeon at Ulhasnagar Central Hospital, said they had enough resources to tackle the situation. “All the patients narrated similar complications. We admitted 25 patients as their condition was serious, while the rest were sent home after primary treatment.” However, Nandapurkar added that had the patients not reached on time, the situation would’ve turned much more serious. Nothing new When sunday mid-day visited the bank of the river, we saw a huge crater, allegedly formed due to constant release of the chemical content in the river. Local residents confirmed that around five trucks have been making visits every alternate day to the spot in order to dump the chemicals.This is nothing new for us, it’s been going on since a year. The frequency of the tanker visits has reduced, but one can still spot them on alternate days,” said Ishwar Singh, owner of Sara engineering, a bus-building factory that is located right opposite the alleged chemical release point. “Our employees have complained about the issue multiple times. We have even sent letters to the Deputy Commissioner of Police, but till date no action has been taken against this illegal activity, he added. Even the authorities at Maharashtra Pollution Control Board had no clue about the incident. An official from MPCB who rushed to inspect the point of chemical release said, “The content of the chemical can only be known after the inspection is completed after 48 hours.”

Residents of OT Section, Lassi Compound and Samrat Ashok Nagar woke up with breathing trouble, headache, stomach ache and dizziness and were rushed to hospitals. Maharashtra Pollution Control Board officials collected water samples that have been sent for tests to ascertain which chemicals were dumped. A case against unidentified people has been registered at the Central police station in Ulhasnagar. Officials said they suspected it was the handiwork of a gang. "Only tests will provide some answers. Primary inspection showed that some hazardous chemical is present in the river water," said MPCB official B P Salunkhe from the Kalyan division. "Initially, I did not understand why I was feeling uneasy but when I came out of my house, I found others with similar problems," said Nanda Sawant (50) who lives in Samrat Ashok Nagar.

They developed drowsiness, body pain and breathing difficulty around 4 am, an hour or so after the chemical release. Naina Asrani (25), a resident of Valdhuni village, said seven members of his family complained of these symptoms one by one. "Around 5am, my mother complained of headache and vomited. Since she had acidity, I gave her some medicine. Soon, her entire body started paining and I felt something's wrong. "When I came out of the house, I saw many of my neighbours, too, complaining of the same symptoms. I saw an ambulance and I went back home to bring my mother. Once at home, my bother and his wife, too, told of the same symptoms," he said. Dr Ashok Nandapurkar of Ulhasnagar central hospital said about 330 patients came to the with the same complaint. "They were exposed to some chemical agent. Around 35 people have been admitted and 301 people were administered first aid. We have shifted some patients to KEM hospital.

Officials from Ulhasnagar Municipal Corporation, Kalyan Pollution Control Board and the police have taken air and water samples from the spot. The samples have been sent to the forensic lab in Kalina. The Ambernath police have registered a case against the unknown tanker driver and charged him under Sections 277,288, 284 and 236 of the Indian Penal Code. " We are in search of the tanker which released the chemical," an official said. A fire department official said when the brigade reached the spot, people were looking very scared. "We sprayed water into the Valdhuni river to neutralise the effect of the chemical," he said. Nitin Shinde, sub regional officer, MPCB, Kalyan said: "Residents of the area told us that unknown tankers come and release chemicals into the river very often. We have registered a case against the tanker driver as releasing chemicals into rivers without permission is illegal". Sachin Nagpal, another resident of Valdhuni village, said: "Last night, some two to three tankers discharged chemicals into the river. There was a thick layer of smog and the air was polluted. Unknown tankers come here and drop chemicals very often. We are helpless. If we object, they will argue with us." Ulhasnagar Municipal Corporation Commissioner Balaji Khatgaonkar, "Some industrial waste was discharged into the Ulhas river near the Ambernath end of MIDC. We immediately evacuated people from the area. We have filed a case in the Ambernath police station and are awaiting reports from forensic lab."

2014-11-29Tribunal's warning against sewage goes unheeded -
Tribunal’s warning against sewage goes unheeded Nov 30, 2014, 03.07 AM IST MUMBAI: The National Green Tribunal (NGT) had directed the Ulhasnagar municipal corporation to stop dumping untreated effluents into the Waldhuni river, which is the drinking water source of the entire Kalyan-Dombivli area, but no heed seems to have been paid to the warning. Despite the Pune bench of the tribunal threatening to direct the urban development department secretary to take over the corporation if it did not clean up its act, a tanker discarded some chemicals into the river on Saturday, following which more than 350 residents were taken ill. The tribunal's warning came after NGO Vanashakti filed a petition to clean up the Ulhas, seeking criminal proceedings against the civic heads of Badlapur and Ulhasnagar for endangering human life and polluting the river. The Waldhuni flows into the Ulhas and then the water flows through the Ulhas creek into the sea. In its affidavit, Vanashakti had pointed out that at Gauripada and Bandarpada, where the Waldhuni met the Ulhas, large tracts of agricultural land were being irrigated with water contaminated with toxic effluents. The affidavit claimed that industrial units in the Dombivli MIDC discharged untreated effluents into the stormwater drains and open spaces. Similar is the scene at NRC bund Shahad where the Khemani drain, carrying untreated sewage from Ulhasnagar, empties into the drinking water pumping zone. "The stench of the chemicals here is so strong that it is almost impossible to stand. I am apprehensive about the poisoning of the food chain as a result of these actions and pray that the practice be immediately stopped and alternate water sources provided to farmers," said D Stalin, director of Vanashakti, in the affidavit. In the next hearing in August, the tribunal had also directed the Maharashtra Pollution Control Board (MPCB) to shut all polluting industrial units along the Ulhas. "Units, which did not even have the MPCB consent to operate, obtained a stay order from the Bombay high court against the closing in August by concealing the NGT orders against them. A similar thing happened in units along the Mithi. The MPCB is the facilitator in all these cases as it keeps silent when matters come up in the high court," Stalin said.
2014-11-29Effluent in Ambernath nullah, 400 taken ill - Indi
Effluent in Ambernath nullah, 400 taken ill 2 residents critical Untreated chemical waste released by unidentified tanker; CCTV cameras have captured ‘numberplate’ Published: November 30, 2014 1:20 am More than 400 Ambernath residents took ill after they inhaled a poisonous gas that was released into a nullah near Maharashtra Industrial Development Corporation (MIDC) on Saturday morning. The gas reportedly emanated from untreated chemical waste released into the nullah by an unidentified tanker belonging to a chemical company. “People started coming to the hospital from 5 am. They complained of breathlessness, severe chest pain and headache,” said Dr Ashok Nandapurkar, medical superintendent, Central Hospital. Officials said over 130 patients were subsequently sent to various hospitals in the Ambernath – Ulhasnagar belt for treatment. Central Hospital authorities said 30 patients were admitted to the hospital. “We have sent blood samples of the patients for chemical analysis. There are a few serious cases where the patients have been constantly vomiting. Two patients are in critical condition. The others were discharged after being administered first aid,” Nandapurkar added. As a matter of precaution, civic-run Sion hospital and state-run JJ Hospital were also notified in case of an emergency but no patient required transfer till evening. Residents alleged that companies dealing in hazardous chemicals often released toxic waste into nullahs, a claim supported by officials of the Maharashtra Pollution Control Board (MPCB). “We all know that companies discharge their waste into the nullah. I have been living in the area for the past 34 years but have never faced such a situation,” said Vasudev Bhatia (53), who also fell ill along with his wife and son. The Bhatia family visited the hospital at 8 am and were discharged around 3 pm after they were given first-aid. Meenakshi Dubey, another resident, said, “My son Ansh, who is a month-old, started breathing irregularly, following which we brought him to the hospital. The doctors have placed him under observation for a day.” The MPCB has filed an FIR against unknown people “for disposing hazardous waste into the nullah”. Zonal Deputy Commissioner of Police Vasant Jadhav said the police had collected samples of water from the nullah and sent them to the Maharashtra Pollution Control Board for further analysis. According to Amar Supate, Principle Scientific Officer, persons from unidentified illegal tankers discharged “hazardous chemicals” into the drains. “These chemical mixed with water and produced hazardous vapours. By the time we reached the spot, the accused had fled with the tankers,” he said. “Nearby CCTV cameras have captured the number plate of the tanker believed to have released the waste into the nullah. We are conducting further inquiries to nab the accused,” said Jadhav. rohit.alok@expressindia.com / tabassum.barnagarwala@expressindia.com

2014-11-29500 take ill after inhaling toxic fumes - Calcutta
500 take ill after inhaling toxic fumes OUR SPECIAL CORRESPONDENT Mumbai, Nov. 29: Over 500 people took ill in a Maharashtra town this morning after inhaling toxic fumes emanating from effluents dumped in a river by a tanker in the middle of the night. By noon, over 300 people in Ulhasnagar, about 37km from Mumbai, were in serious enough condition to be rushed to hospital. Many complained of breathlessness, others of burning eyes, headache and dizziness. Many others began vomiting, unable to tolerate the pervading stench. By evening however, all but 10 had been discharged after treatment and those under observation in hospital were reported to be stable. The scare in Ulhasnagar, a grubby and crowded town, came three days before the 30th anniversary of the Bhopal gas leak. Ulhasnagar is said to be one of the largest jeans manufacturing hubs in the world and is home to many Sindhis who migrated to India after Partition.Residents said around 3am on Saturday a tanker dumped effluents in river Valganga, which flows between Ulhasnagar and Ambernath, a semi-rural area in Thane district that has seen rampant industrialisation of late. “Every night tankers from all over come and dump effluents in the river — there is absolutely no enforcement of regulation here. The local NCP MLA, Jyoti Kalani, is the wife of a well-known don-turned-politician who is in and out of jail. Nobody raises his voice against this rampant pollution because everyone is afraid,” said Seema Lulla, a housewife from Ulhasnagar who lives close to the river. Police said a disaster had been averted because people immediately left the area. “We did not have to evacuate, people themselves left. Hospital ambulances also speeded things up,” said senior inspector B. Wagh of Ulhasnagar Central police station. He said the registration number of the tanker was MH43E 1336. Two FIRs have been lodged against unknown persons. A Maharashtra pollution control board team from Kalyan has collected samples of the effluents.

Kin of four 2011 triple bomb blast victims paid compensation, collector tells Bombay high court The collector of Mumbai informed the Bombay high court on Thursday that kin of the four victims of the July 2011 triple bomb blast case, who had not been paid compensation, were recently handed over cheques for the statutory amount with interest for delayed payment, as directed by the court. Collector Shaila A filed an affidavit stating that cheques had been sent to the kin of the victims and the government had received the acknowledgment receipts. They had also been paid interest as directed. A division bench of justices Anoop Mohta and NM Jamdar accepted the affidavit and directed the state to file details of those victims of other blasts/Naxal attacks in the state who were yet to be compensated. The directive came during the hearing of a PIL filed by Prakash Seth, according to which four people in Thane and Ulhasnagar hadn't received compensation to date. The PIL has sought disbursal of the compensation amount as well as an increase in the amount. According to Rahul Kadam, the petitioner's advocate, Himmatbhai Gadia, Baburam Das and Bhupatbhai Navadia of Thane, and Lalchand Ahuja of Ulhasnagar hadn't received the compensation. Apart from these four, there are others victims too who hadn't been given the compensation amount, said Kadam. Kadam said the central government had made necessary amendments to the 'central scheme for assistance to civilian victims/family of victims of terrorist/communal and Naxal violence', and given collector the authority to disburse Rs3 lakh. Another PIL, by advocate Rajeshwar Panchal, has sought that the families of those killed in bomb blasts be paid just and fair amount. Panchal has demanded that the income of the deceased, social status of the family, and the number of dependents should be taken into consideration while deciding the compensation amount. He has pointed out that the Motor Vehicles Act and the Workmen's Compensation Act had laid down a formula to work out such a compensation.

Lives at risk, but unauthorised buildings find political support Nov 27, 2014, 12.48 AM IST PUNE: Even before the government takes a call on legalising illegal constructions, word is out in the fringe realty market. "You buy a flat and we assure you that it will get regularised. The state government is going to make all these buildings legal," assured Ramnath, trying to sell flats for the construction firm he works for in Katraj. Property agents like Ramnath have a simple logic for pinning their hopes on politicians. "There is nothing illegal about our buildings in Mangdewadi and Ambegaon. There are thousands of buildings that have come up without permission. Will the government demolish all these buildings? Is it possible? Will our leaders allow this to happen? So don't worry, all buildings will have legal stamp soon, and then you will get all the property papers and also the entitlement to amenities," Ramnath said. Developers are only too aware that the buildings they have constructed may have weak foundations, but would survive on the strength of political support. Political pressure is already mounting on new chief minister Devendra Fadnavis to legalise such constructions across Maharashtra. The expectation is that the government would turn a blind eye to the risk these buildings pose to the lives of people who stay in them, and put the legal stamp on them. Developers claim the expectation is not off the mark and will be met. "The government regularised all illegal buildings in Ulhasnagar and will do so for our buildings too," said A K Patil, a property dealer in Katraj, who promises flats at "best price", with no expenditure on stamp paper and VAT. Patil's is sure the government won't disappoint. "People's voice and votes matter," he said. On the city's fringes, developers routinely cite the Ulhasnagar example to convince potential customers. In 2006, when the state government had approved a special bill to regularise illegal constructions in Ulhasnagar, the powers that be had assured the move would not set a precedent. Eight years on, the 'Ulhasnagar model' is widely showcased to get illegal constructions legalised in the state. "Structural stability is a must for regularising. The Ulhasnagar model cannot be followed. What would happen if the buildings cave in even after they are stamped as legal," said a state government official. But such concerns do not figure on the politicians' radar. The 14-member committee constituted to prepare a new law to stop illegal structures has been flooded with suggestions seeking protection of the buildings and the people living in them. With many petitions by civic organizations and individuals pending in courts seeking action against illegal structures, MLAs have asked the state government to convene a session of the state assembly to pass a new law on illegal structures. The Bombay High Court has already issued eviction notices to 66,324 illegal structures in Pimpri and Chinchwad areas and has asked the municipal corporation to carry out a demolition drive. But local MLAs, MPs and corporators have put their strength behind these illegal structures. The Pune district administration had recently identified more than 8,700 illegal constructions on the city's fringes, but its drive against them stopped even before it took off. Among the politicians leading the chorus to save these structures are the eight BJP MLAs in the city and an MP, who have "vouched" to stand for "common people". "We need a practical solution to this problem. Where will these people go if their houses are demolished," asked BJP MLA Yogesh Tilekar. "The government should make a special law and legalise these structures. Necessary steps could be taken to ensure stability of these structures once they are legalised," he said. During the election campaign, he had promised to protect illegal constructions on hill tops and hill slopes in his constituency, Hadapsar. Senior BJP MLA Girish Bapat suggested people be penalised before their buildings get the legal stamp. MLA Vijay Kale blamed the 'babu-developer' nexus for these illegal constructions, but went on to say, "It has become difficult for a common citizen to find an affordable house. So we have to consider that before we take a call on this issue." The Congress and NCP government had earlier extended the slum regularisation cut-off date from January 1, 1995, to January 1, 2000, making slums on hill tops, hill slopes and on water bodies legal. "What happened to slums could happen to illegal constructions and this vicious cycle will continue. If the government is going to legalise all illegal structures, it should first check the structural stability of each and every building and legalise only the stable ones," said Vivek Velankar of Sajag Nagri Manch, adding that those responsible should be punished, which would act as a deterrent. Prithviraj Chavan, who faced immense pressure on this issue in the last leg of his term as CM, had lamented the lack of strong urban governance machinery in the state and had admitted that regularising illegal structures was a "moral hazard" and that the need of the hour was to find a middle path.

11-yr-old fakes kidnap, reunited with parentsThe author has posted comments on this articleNishikant Karlikar, TNN | Nov 22, 2014, 02.40AM ISTShare on LinkedinPage 1 of 4THANE: The Child Protection Unit (CPU) of Thane police helped an 11-year-old runaway boy from Aurangabad to reunite with his parents after he was found crying near Ulhasnagar railway station on Thursday. Madan Ballal, senior police officer of the unit said that Prem Gude, a Std VI student, reached Kurla by an express train with his school mate to visit Mumbai. He did not inform his parents about his trip. "As the two boys were loitering at Kurla station, a GRP constable asked him what they were up to. Rattled, the two started running helter-skelter and got separated," said sub-inspector Kamaluddin Shaikh. Gude reached Ulhasnagar railway station where a constable of the CPU spotted and intercepted him. Gude cooked up a fake kidnap story, which the cops did not buy. Later, he confessed that he came up with a fake kidnap story after watching a crime daily soap on television. Gude was then sent to Bhiwandi remand home. Meanwhile, Gude's worried parents registered a kidnapping case at Mukundwadi police station in Aurangabad. The boy was finally reunited with his parents after he confessed that he came to Mumbai to witness its glamour and was lured by his friend, said the police.

But a teenager in the city may as well be the youngest ever person to have had a heart attack, owing to his habit of chewing tobacco and smoking beedis since the age of 11. Luckily, he survived. On November 20, Ashok Kumar (16) went to a public toilet in Ghatkopar (East) to answer nature’s call. Ashok is currently recovering in the ICCU of Rajawadi Hospital. This picture has been taken with the permission of the patient and the doctor. Pics/Suresh KK As he came out, he started sweating profusely and collapsed to the ground in full view of everybody. Instead of taking him to the hospital, people there asked for a relative’s contact number to make a phone call. In acute pain, Ashok produced his diary and the emergency was conveyed to a relative, who came to his rescue and took him to Rajawadi Hospital. Ashok’s family says they will ask him to return to their village, so that he doesn’t revert to his smoking ways. The picture has been taken with the permission of Ashok and the doctor Veteran smokerDr Sachin Payannavar, ICCU medical officer at Rajawadi Hospital, said, “The boy was brought in with complaints of chest pain, perspiration and pain radiating to the left upper limb (see box). An ECG revealed that he was having an acute myocardial infarction (the medical term for an event commonly known as a heart attack). He was immediately put on life-saving drugs and his ECG was monitored, thereafter, continuously. By evening, his ECG reports showed signs of improvement.” “We get an average of 30-40 cases of heart attacks a month in elderly patients at our hospital, but this was the first case involving a juvenile,” explained Dr Payannavar. Ashok has been chewing tobacco, and puffing beedis and cigarettes since he was 11. A resident of Basti district in Uttar Pradesh, he had come to Mumbai to earn a living. He told doctors that he was addicted to tobacco, and sometimes even smoked ganja. He also drank occasionally. A dropout of Std V, he started loitering with his friends in his village and began by smoking one cigarette or beedi a day, which went up to 6-7 daily. He then graduated to ganja and alcohol. Ashok told mid-day, “All I remember is that the chest pain was unbearable and I thought I wouldn’t survive. My relative put me in an ambulance, and when I opened my eyes I was in the hospital. I am feeling better now and want to go to my parents.” Dr Payannavar added, “Since the boy was addicted to such intoxicants for the last five years, he was already in the high-risk bracket of cardiovascular diseases. He was lucky to survive a major heart attack, and any delay could have been fatal. We have advised him to quit his addictions immediately, or else he could endanger his life. We will require an angiography, for which he will be referred to Sion or KEM soon, where we may need financial assistance from an NGO for treatment.” Dr Anil Chopde, deputy medical superintendent at the hospital, stated, “In the 27 years of my career, this is the first case where a young boy of 16 years has been brought in with a heart attack. One of the factors is tobacco addiction at an early age.” Ashok started working at the age of 14 with his fellow villagers in different parts of the country, doing odd jobs like masonry and carpentry. In August 2014, he was in Hyderabad working in an apartment, when he fell unconscious and was admitted to a hospital. Doctors had then advised him to keep away from smoking and his addictions, but he ignored them. Ashok has been staying away from his family, who have no idea of his addictions. His father, Ram Nayan (55), said, “Nobody in our family has heart-related ailments. Ashok is the eldest of four children and is a school dropout. He has never smoked in our presence, but we are not aware of what he does outside the house.” Ram Nayan himself is a smoker, and confessed to puffing 6-7 beedis a day and drinking occasionally. A fisherman by profession, Ram Nayan is the sole breadwinner for his family, earning Rs 100 to Rs 150 a day. Ashok was working in Ulhasnagar, for Rs 250 per day. “Ashok, in the last five months, has only sent home a money order of Rs 2,000. We received it just two days before we learnt about his hospitalisation,” his father recalled. However, Ram Nayan refuses to come to Mumbai, citing financial strain. But, once his son recovers he will be ordered to come home, where he would be under strict vigil to ensure he doesn’t smoke or drink again. “He will help me in my regular work. I won’t send him to Mumbai again,” Ram Nayan stated. Attacking the young Cases of heart attacks among teenagers have been seen around the world. >> A 13-year-old boy from Lukut, Malaysia, collapsed and died at his tuition centre in June 2008, reported Sin Chew Daily. The deceased, Zhen Siong, was nearly six feet tall. He had complained of chest pain at a camping trip earlier, but the family never suspected it to be serious. >> In October 2012, an Indian teenager living in Abu Dhabi, Nazneen Nasser, died of a heart attack after a party at a relative’s place, ironically on the eve of World Heart Day, Emirates 24/7 reported. The 17-year-old’s parents said she never had any serious problems. >> In UK, a girl of 13 died due to heart attack after suffering severe mosquito bites on a holiday. She collapsed to the ground eleven days after returning. Medical reports later revealed she had had an attack that went undetected earlier. Expert speak Dr Prafulla KerkarProfessor and HOD Cardiology dept, KEM HospitalI have seen lifestyle diseases like diabetes and hypertension in 16-year-olds, but this is the first case of heart attack I’ve heard of. This particular case will need to be evaluated from all possible angles, including any lipid disorders. One may understand that any sort of tobacco addiction is dangerous and could lead to cardiovascular problems. Dr Robin PintoSenior cardiologistUnlike traditional blockages in the heart due to age, this is a very rare case and is possible in case of smoking and cocaine addiction, which leads to spasm of the arteries without underlying blockages. The boy will have to undergo an angiography and will have to be monitored closely. He will have to give up his addiction and be on medication for life. Dr K VenugopalPresident, Cardiology Society of India“Unless there are genetic abnormalities which manifest a problem in coronary arteries in the first two decades of birth, cases of heart attacks, otherwise, in children are rare. In this case, the patient probably might have some cholesterol metabolism issue and his addiction aggravated the problem, leading to a higher risk of getting a heart attack.

2014-11-20Former MLA booked for cheating - The Asian Age
Former MLA booked for cheating Nov 21, 2014 - PARTH SATAM | mumbai Share Sitaldas Harchandani Accused allegedly secured govt aid of Rs 4.5L with forged documents A former MLA from the BJP has been booked by the Thane police for allegedly cheating the state government to the tune of Rs 4.5 lakh by forging documentation to secure government aided rent for a school for mentally challenged children run by his trust. Five others members from the trust’s committee have also been named as accused in the case. The former MLA however refuted the allegations, saying the complainant in the case had “ulterior” motives. The complaint has been filed by Zilla Parishad’s District Social Welfare Officer (DSWO) Bhanudas Sankhe. According to his statement, the ex-MLA Sitaldas Harchandani, chairman of the Sai Baba Education Trust in Ulhasnagar, is required to pay an annual rent of Rs 90,500 for the school’s building. Such institutions are however eligible for government funding as per current policies for the benefit of differently-abled persons. He availed of the scheme where to receive the government grant, the trust is supposed to submit a certificate from the public works department (PWD), which surveys the structure in which the institution is located. “However according to the complainant, Harchandani forged such certificates of the PWD and submitted it to the social welfare department against which he received the funding of Rs 4.52 lakh between 2006 to 2011. We are, however, yet to make any arrests and will only do so if the need arises after recording the statement of the accused and carrying out a detailed enquiry,” said senior PI Dilip Boraste of Thane Nagar police station. The police is likely to communicate with the PWD and other government offices to check if the documents were forged. Harchandani was a three-time MLA from the area winning the elections in 1975, 1980 and 1985 before losing to rival Pappu Kalani in in the 1990 Assembly polls. When contacted, Harchandani said, “The case against me is baseless. The complainant was a member of our trust and was removed for various reasons. He is now trying to exact revenge,” he said.

A swim with his dog proved disastrous for 26-year-old Omkar Baviskar, a resident of Ulhasnagar, who drowned in the GIP lake dam at Ambernath on Sunday. Swimming is prohibited in the lake and his body could be recovered only after 30 hours, due to lack of equipment and divers. The biggest shock to his two sisters came when they were told that there was no way to search for or rescue him. "His sister Veena tried in vain to get the authorities to start the rescue operation but they simply kept saying they did not have any equipment. The fire brigade came later but all were helpless," said a relative. Omkar had lost both his parents earlier. According to a family friend, Omkar was a good swimmer and had gone to the lake because of his dog. "The dog was diagnosed with some problem in its legs so the veterinarian asked it to be taken for swimming. On Sunday afternoon, Omkar returned with the dog after swimming but then told some of his friends that he wanted to take one last dip. He went back and simply disappeared," said Lalit Dakhane, a family friend, who added that Omkar was an engineer and worked at Vikhroli. The lake belongs to the Central Railways and the dam was built under the British empire. The waters powered thousands of steam locomotives at that time. Early this year, the Indian Railway Catering and Tourism corporation (IRCTC) had set-up a drinking water bottling plant there. Local MLA Dr Balaji Kinikar, who went to the spot, said, "I am still shocked as to how he could drown. His friends told me he swam for more than an hour with the dog. The municipal council had very basic equipment and the officials tried to do what they could. They tried to contact divers as well but it was too late," he said. "I have spoken to the CEO and requested him to take up the matter with railways and get boards and barb wires put up in the area," added Kinikar. DROWNING A PUBLIC HEATH CONCERN: WHO Thirty thousand people in India died due to drowning in 2013, of which a majority were children below 5 years of age, said aglobal report by the World Health Organisation released on Monday. With over 3.72 lakh drowning deaths in a year globally, the report urges countries, especially those covered with several water bodies, to wake up to this public health concern. "It is a very big number and worse is that more than half of these deaths are in the age group of below 25 years," said Dr David Meddings, scientist, department of violence and injury prevention, WHO. The report states that there has been a 9% increase in the number of drowning cases as compared to 2012 in India. The report was triggered after scientists realised that drowning was the second largest killer in children after road traffic accidents.
2014-11-16Coco broom sales boom riding on Swachh Bharat Abhi
Coco broom sales boom riding on Swachh Bharat Abhiyan Sunday, 16 November 2014 - 5:50am IST | Agency: DNA Padmja Sinha 1Shares Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Google+ Share on Reddit Apparently everyone is keen on being involved in Swachh Bharat Abhiyan kick-started by prime minister Narendra Modi some months back. The drive has not only ensured cleanliness, but also created employment opportunities for many people in cottage industry with demand for coco brooms shooting up. Coco broom gained popularity and became a symbol against corruption after AAP's Arvind Kejriwal adopted it as the party symbol. And it has been in demand ever since. PM Modi redefined it and made it more popular through Swachh Bharat Abhiyan. Housing societies, schools, municipal bodies and even corporates have been latching on to the PM initiative and buying coco brooms in bulk for cleaning public places and schools. Nawab Patel, a broom manufacturer in Gol Maidan, Ulhasnagar, says: "For the past two months the demand for cocoa brooms has gone up and vendors have been demanding more brooms." "We have stocked a good number of coco brooms in our shops as one never knows when a nearby society or school decides to take up the drive. Hence, we are ready with ample number of brooms," said Sridhar Ram of Swastika general stores at Pokharann Road No. 2. Retailers in the city too are happy as everyday they get bulk order from some society, NGO or corporate office. In fact, weekends see heavy demand as most drives are organized then. Subhrat Deo, a retailer in Jambhli Naka, said: "This week we have an order for 50 coco brooms from Brahmin Society at Naupada. According him, bulk order benefits both the parties, as retailers get good sales and people get good discount." The recently held cleanliness drive at Vasant Vihar, Runwal Estate and other societies across Thane, saw shops in the vicinity making a killing. Nawab Patel said the drive had given an extra push to the cottage industry as well with employment opportunities increasing. With coco brooms thus becoming popular, the day seems not far off when they would be sponsored by big companies for Swachch Bharat Abhiyan. Sales boom Average cost of a broom: Rs 45 to 50. Average sales 2 months ago: 40 a month. No. of brooms sold now: 300 a month. 1Shares Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Google+ Share on Reddit CleaningcleanlinessPrime MinisterNarendra ModiSchoolsSwatchh Bharat Mission

CAT exam begins Sunday, aspirants complain about far-off centres HT Correspondent, Hindustan Times  Mumbai, November 15, 2014 First Published: 20:57 IST(15/11/2014) | Last Updated: 21:29 IST(15/11/2014) Email print Font Size A | A+ | A- Subscribe Breaking News Alert Comments After months of preparation, 1.96 lakh students will from Sunday attempt to bell the CAT – Common Admission Test, the entry examination for Indian Institutes of Management (IIMs) and top business schools in the country. The exam is scheduled to be held in four sessions on November 16 and 22. Last year, around 1.94 lakh students appeared for the test, which was conducted in 40 sessions across 20 days. This year, a common complaint among students in Mumbai is that though the number of examination centres has increased, they are often located far away from their homes. “Allotment of exam centres is a major problem this year. Most students have got centres which are very far from their home,” said Jaimin Shah, a CAT aspirant from Kandivli. “I have got a centre is Ulhasnagar, which is hours away from where I stay. Similarly, a few of my friends staying in the western suburbs have got exam centres in Vashi or Shahapur.” Several students from the city have opted out of the CAT exam as they have to appear for their final year university exams in the coming week. The university exams had been postponed owing to the state assembly elections in October. “Third year B.Com exams are coinciding with CAT. Initially, I was sure about appearing for CAT. However, when the TYBCom exams were postponed, I had to choose varsity exams over CAT,” said another aspirant. Engineering students affiliated to University of Mumbai have to contend with another problem this year. Many have opted out of CAT after the number of examination sessions was reduced. Semester 7 exams for engineering students are scheduled to start from November 21. Moreover, several changes in the format of the mock exams, which IIMs started offering online from October 31,  left aspirants confused. Candidates claimed that in the mock tests, marks allotted to individual questions were not specified. Also, some questions had five options, instead of four in previous years’ tests. "This time, during mock tests, many questions had five options. We also had no idea about how many marks each question carried,” said Kevin Dogra, an aspirant from the city.

2014-11-11Bike of man who killed wife found - Times of India
Bike of man who killed wife found TNN | Nov 12, 2014, 12.29 AM IST MUMBAI: Three months after a travel operator, Gyanchand Meghrajani (34), stabbed his wife to death and fled their Ulhasnagar house, the police have found his motorcycle. Before fleeing, Meghrajani had written in blood on one of the walls in the house that if he lives, he would kill another person. The bike was found near Kalyan creek three days after the murder by Bazarpeth police and Ulhasnagar cops came to know of it only last week. On August 10, Meghrajani killed his wife Kavita (32) and left the message on the wall. The police, during investigation, found that Kavita had an extra-marital affair and are fearing the accused might attack her paramour. But they have been unable to trace Meghrajani as well as the paramour. As the bike was found near Kalyan creek, cops are suspecting Meghrajani might have committed suicide.—
2014-11-11Maharashtra: Slogans rent the assembly air as MLAs
Maharashtra: Slogans rent the assembly air as MLAs take oath Tuesday, 11 November 2014 - 6:00am IST | Agency: DNA Dhaval Kulkarni 2Shares Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Google+ Share on Reddit Ex-CM Prithviraj Chavan, NCP’s Sunil Tatkare and Chhagan Bhujbal, and Congress’s Kalidas Kolambkar and Nitesh Rane Oath of office being taken in Sanskrit, Ahirani and Sindhi, slogans of Jai Sri Ram, Jai Maharashtra, Jai Vidarbha, Jai Khandesh and Sat Sri Akal, invocations to legendary warrior-king Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj, Goddess Tulja Bhavani, Mahatma Gandhi and even prime minister Narendra Modi and Shiv Sena president Uddhav Thackeray and his son Aaditya. These were some glimpses of the swearing in ceremony for newly elected legislators presided over by pro-term speaker Jiva Pandu Gavit of the Communist Party of India (Marxist) at the state legislature on Monday. While most legislators took oath on the name of God and Allah (in case of Muslim MLAs), some, such as assembly's senior-most MLA and PWP leader Ganpatrao Deshmukh, outgoing chief minister Prithviraj Chavan, former ministers Chhagan Bhujbal, Ajit Pawar and Varsha Gaikwad, preferred to "solemnly affirm". A few chose to use both, the name of God and solemn affirmation, while education minister Vinod Tawde used the names of his parents Sridhar and Vijaya while taking oath. Shiv Sena and BJP may be drifting apart, but chief minister Devendra Fadnavis and minister Sudhir Mungantiwar chose to reach out to saffron turban-wearing Sena legislators by greeting them personally after getting down from the lectern. Mungantiwar and Sanjay Rathod (Sena) removed their chappals before taking oath, while Raj Purohit (BJP) walked to the lectern without his footwear. Veteran BJP MLAs Girish Mahajan, Girish Bapat and its tribal face and tribal development minister Vishnu Sawra took oath in Sanskrit, while another party legislator Jaykumar Rawal used the Ahirani dialect spoken in Khandesh, and appended his oath with a "Jai Khandesh" slogan. NCP MLA from the Sindhi enclave of Ulhasnagar Jyoti Kalani took oath in Sindhi and gave the "Jai Jhulelal" slogan afterwards. Non-Maharashtrian MLAs Prakash Mehta, Vidya Thakur, Mangalprabhat Lodha, Nasim Khan and Aslam Shaikh took oath in Marathi. Varsha Gaikwad appended her oath with "Jai Bhim", a salutation to Dalit icon Dr Babasaheb Ambedkar, Sena legislators Dadaji Bhuse and Subhash Sabane said the party's Jai Maharashtra slogan, while Bharatseth Gogawale and Dnyaraj Chougule paid their respects to Shivaji Maharaj. Former Congress minister Siddharam Mhetre took oath in the name of Saint Swami Samarth of Akkalkot, while Sardar Tara Singh (BJP) invoked Guru Nanak and Guru Govind Singh before saying "Bole so nihaal, Sat sri Akal". Congressman DP Sawant paid respects to former union home minister Shankarrao Chavan, while Hanmant Dolas did so for former legislator and co-operative doyen Shankarrao Mohite Patil. Ram Kadam and Amit Zanak remembered their parents, while BJP's Govardhan Sharma used the Sangh Parivar's favourite slogan of Jai Sri Ram. Samajwadi Party's Abu Asim Azmi, who was roughed up on the floor of the House five years ago by MNS legislators for taking oath in Hindi, used the national language again, while BJP MLAs Dr Anil Bonde, Vikas Kumbhare and Sudhir Parwe chose to make a strong statement through the "Jai Vidarbha" slogan. BJP MLA Baburao Pacharne said NaMo, NaMo to show his loyalty to Modi, while Sena's Rajesh Kshirsagar did the same for Uddhav and Aaditya. Rahul Bondre from Chikhali used the "Jai Jagat" slogan coined by Gandhian and social worker Acharya Vinoba Bhave. A newly elected woman legislator was seen clicking photos in the House enthusiastically. The loudest claps were reserved for Ganpatrao Deshmukh, 88, who carries respect across party lines. Deshmukh had to be helped on to the lectern by staff. 2Shares Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Google+ Share on Reddit AssemblyBJPCommunist Party of India (Marxist)CongressMinistersMLAsPrime MinisterNarendra ModioathShiv Senaslogan

Law enforcement agencies get an ‘alert’ on fake animal products Comments Email Print Written by Srinath Raghvendra Rao | Mumbai | Posted: November 10, 2014 12:30 pm | Updated: November 10, 2014 12:32 pm The Wildlife Crime Control Bureau (WCCB) has issued a nation-wide alert objecting to law enforcement agencies invoking the Wildlife (Protection) Act, 1972, in cases of trading and possession of fake animal products. The bureau has also issued tips for law enforcement agencies to tell a genuine tiger skin from a fake one. The alert comes after two cases in Thane last month, where nine men were arrested by the police for attempting to sell genuine tiger skins. Both skins later turned out to be fake, the WCCB said. The alert reads, “In the recent past, it has been observed that various enforcement agencies are booking offence cases under the Wildlife (Protection) Act, 1972 for the possession and trade of fake tiger skin and tiger claws, teeth, etc due to wrong identification. Often, cases are booked by other enforcement agencies for having fake animal products and the accused involved in those cases are also produced before the court of law for violation of the Wildlife (Protection) Act.” M. Maranko, Regional Deputy Director, Western Region, WCCB, added, “law enforcement agencies are not always able to tell a real skin from a fake. So we have issued easy tips to help distinguish between the two.” In one such case, in early October, the Shivaji Nagar police station in Ambernath arrested Rahul Lalwani, Amit Dinanathram, Sanket Irmadi and Satish Bhoir for alleged possession of a tiger skin. The men were produced before a judicial magistrate in Ulhasnagar and remanded to police custody. “However, when we examined the skin on October 11, we found that the skin was fake,” Maranko said. Inspector Hemant Shinde of Shivaji Nagar police station said however, the authenticity of the skin would only be established by a chemical analysis at the state forensic laboratory. “We called experts from the Thane Forest Department to examine the skin before handing it over to the forensic laboratory. We are awaiting its report,” he said. However, K. P. Singh, Chief Conservator of Forests and Field Director, Thane Forest Department, said that invoking the Wildlife Protection Act was still valid in cases of fake skins. “Prima facie, both skins looked fake, but we decided to get an opinion from the Wildlife Institute of India,” he said. srinath.rao@expressindia.com Comments

2014-11-04Congress MPs, MLAs play truant - The Asian Age
Congress MPs, MLAs play truant Nov 05, 2014 | Age Correspondent | mumbai Share A joint meeting called by Maharashtra Pradesh Congress Committee (MPCC) and Mumbai Regional Congress Committee (MRCC) failed to galvanise leaders of different levels in the party, and the five MLAs from Mumbai, Naseem Khan, Amin Patel, Aslam Sheikh, Kalidas Kolambkar and Varsha Gaikwad, gave it a miss. The meeting was called to finalise the strategy for the grand celebration of Jawaharlal Nehru’s 125th anniversary. In this meeting, all office bearers from not only Mumbai but from Thane, Bhiwandi, Kalyan, Dombivili, Ulhasnagar were asked to attend the meeting. Office bearers who were invited included former and current MPs, MLAs, district presidents, corporators, block presidents, etc. However, only a few chose to attend. Two Rajya Sabha MPs from Mumbai, Bhalchandra Mungekar and Husain Dalwai, were also absent. When this meeting was being held at MRCC office, senior leader Narayan Rane was having a press conference at the state congress office Gandhi Bhawan. “We have three Muslim MLAs so they may not have attended on account of Muharram. But the absence of the others is definitely not a good sign for us,” a senior party leader said.

Not a single district MLA gets ministerial berth in new govtThe author has posted comments on this articleNitin Yeshwantrao, TNN | Nov 5, 2014, 01.09AM ISTShare on LinkedinPage 1 of 4 Thane: For the first time in the last two decades, Thane district has failed to find any representation in the state ministry, setting off anxiety and criticism in the BJP camp for ignoring the traditional Hindutva bastion. Chief minister Devendra Fadnavis's decision to appoint BJP MLA Vishnu Savra from the tribal town of Vikramgad, is largely seen as a representation to the newly-created Palghar district, while Thane has been given a go-by, at least for now. The Thane-Dombvili-Kalyan-Ulhasnagar-Shahapur townships have traditionally been the secure pockets of Hindutva voters and the Sena-BJP have been in power in the civic bodies in these townships. However, post break-up between the Sena-BJP, voters have shown an inclination towards the BJP which garnered more than 28% votes, winning seven of the 17 seats it contested. The Sena polled close to 30% votes, winning six out of 18 seats it contested. ''We had high hopes that Thane would definitely find a berth in the state ministry in the first round itself. The BJP had fared exceptionally well in Thane city and more importantly it won over the Sena after a very long time. A ministerial berth to either of the seven MLAs would have made it easier for the BJP in the forthcoming polls to the civic body of Kalyan-Dombvili, Navi Mumbai etc,'' said a political observer. He added that in 1995 when the saffron allies stormed into Mantralaya, the Sena and BJP had collectively three MLAs from Thane district in the state ministry. The then chief minister Manohar Joshi had inducted Ganesh Naik, Shabir Shaikh and Jagganath Patil in his ministry. In 1999, the then chief minister Vilasrao Chavan had administered oath to Ganesh Naik from the NCP and he was also appointed as the guardian minister of Thane. ''Subsequently, Thane district was represented by Naik, Vasant Davkhare (appointed as deputy chairperson of the state legislative council), Jitendra Awhad, Pramod Hindurrao (president of CIDCO) and Rajendra Gavit. This time, however, not a single MLA has been sworn in as yet,'' he said. Meanwhile, sources said the district will get its representation in the second round of ministry formation after the successful conclusion of the on-going talks between the Sena and BJP. It is believed that the Sena will nominate its senior leader and three-time MLA from Kopri-Panchpakhadi Eknath Shinde to the cabinet.

According to the health department of the civic body, out of a total of 88 dengue patients registered in the district, areas under the jurisdiction of TMC top the charts with 55 cases. What's even more worrying is the fact that the number of cases has seen a sharp rise despite the civic body's efforts to spread awareness about the vector-borne disease even before the beginning of the rainy season. In order to curb the rising number of cases, TMC has asked its officials to conduct fogging in all the vulnerable areas. "The civic body alone cannot tackle the issue. Public participation for keeping areas clean is required to address the problem," said a civic official. The civic body has advised citizens to ensure that there is no water accumulation near saplings, vessels, tanks and other areas as the dengue causing mosquito and breeds in stagnant water. Such stagnant water could be found in flower vases, old tyres, upturned bottle caps, coconut shells among others. Surprisingly, the number of dengue cases detected in areas under TMC's jurisdiction is much higher than numbers reported from other corporation areas on the outskirts of the lake city. For instance, 15 dengue cases were reported in the Vasai-Virar Municipal Corporation area and seven in the Mira-Bhayander civic body area. Similarly, three dengue patients were found in Kalyan-Dombivli Corporation and two in Bhiwandi civic body's jurisdiction. Not a single case was reported from the Ulhasnagar civic body limits, despite the area being termed as "unhygienic" by many citizens. Even the only dengue death reported in Thane district is from TMC area. "The TMC should take additional measures to address the issue. Besides the corporation, citizens too should take up the responsibility to keep their surroundings clean and help the corporation in tackling the mosquito menace.

WR to have safer platforms by May WR to have safer platforms by May — By FPJ Bureau | Nov 02, 2014 12:10 am Mumbai : Suburban commuters on Western Railway (WR) could expect enhanced safety with the authorities planning to complete raising the height of platforms by May end next year. Railway officials said that these platforms, between Churchgate and Virar, are most dangerous and are being covered in phase I and II. After completion of these phases, WR authorities would take up phase III where platforms having height of less than 920 mm would be taken up. Officials said, “out of 125 platforms on the WR suburban section, authorities had taken up 48 on priority basis.” They further said that the WR has already completed work on 22 platforms and will be completing another 26 platforms by May end. A senior official from WR said, “Nearly 50 percent work has been completed and the remaining work will be over by May.” However, railway officials are waiting for a nod from the Railway Board to start the work on phase III which will include another 96 platforms across the WR division. An official from WR said, “The work for increasing the height of these 96 platforms will cost nearly Rs 30 crore. Nod from the Railway Board and funds are awaited for starting the work.” On the other hand Central Railway (CR) has invited tenders to start the work worth Rs 15 crore on another 24 platforms as part of the second phase. It has already completed work on seven platforms. Stations where the work will be started include Dockyard Road, Sandhurst Road, Reay Road, Sewri, Vadala, Cotton Green, Kalyan, Vithalwadi, Ulhasnagar Ambernath, Badlapur, Byculla, Currey Raod, Matunga, Sion,Nahur, Sandpa, Juinagar, Nashi, Nerul, Kharghar. Belapur,Turbhe and Mankhurd. Both the divisions of railways were asked to raise the height of platforms after the High Court took suo-moto action on media reports regarding accidents of commuters after falling in the gap between the platform and the foot board of local trains. In September, the Bombay High Court slammed WR and CR for delay in the work and asked to expedite increasing height of the platforms. Past instances of mishaps January 11 – 16-year old student Monica More lost both her arms after falling in the gap between the platforms and the footboard of the train at Ghatkopar platform no. 2. February 17 – An officer in the Indian Railway Catering and Tourism Corporation (IRCTC) died after falling in the gap at Andheri railway station while trying to board August-Kranti Rajdhani Express.   emailprint « Previous Article ‘Hugging and kissing to be sign of ‘kiss of love’ protest!

2014-11-01ACB asks public prosecutor to hasten case against
ACB asks public prosecutor to hasten case against tainted engineer Sunil JoshiBy Yogesh SadhwaniYogesh Sadhwani, Mumbai Mirror | Nov 2, 2014, 12.00 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 articlesTop: Sunil JoshiRELATEDIn all, the investigating agency has booked 2,794 cases since 1986 and not one has been heard in court. Four days after tainted engineer Sunil Joshi was reinstated by Kalyan Dombivli Municipal Corporation's commissioner, the Anti-Corruption Bureau (ACB) has submitted letters to the public prosecutor's office requesting that two cases pending against Joshi be heard immediately. Joshi, the assistant director of town planning department in KDMC was suspended in February 2010 after he was caught, allegedly accepting a bribe of Rs 5 lakh. Joshi was reinstalled on Monday. This despite staunch opposition from the ACB, which had a representative present at an administrative committee meeting held on August 16 this year. The officer from the bureau had pointed out that there were two charge sheets pending against him in Kalyan sessions court - for "bribery (2011) and for owning assets disproportionate to his income (2012)". The officer's opposition was noted in the minutes, and months later Sonawane went on to sign Joshi's reinstatement order. Sonawane's justification was that as per Government Resolution of October 10, 2011, "once prosecution has been initiated and if there is no final outcome within two years, the government servant should be reinstated". After Joshi was reinstated, the ACB team in Thane sought legal opinion - they were told there was little that could be done to expedite the hearing. Sources in the ACB revealed that although charge sheets for bribery and disproportionate assets cases were filed in 2011 and 2012 respectively, those cases are yet to be tried. "We cannot approach the court directly. Hence we have taken up the matter with the public prosecutor's office, requesting them to get the trials initiated immediately. Joshi was reinstated despite our opposition on the basis of a Government Resolution (GR) and hence this is the best we can do," said a senior official in ACB Thane. When Mumbai Mirror contacted Jyoti Lohokare, public prosecutor in Kalyan Session court, she said, "The matter is under process. We will take it up with the court over the next few days." 2,794 cases against errant officials Joshi's case is not the only one pending trial. As per official ACB statistics, 2,794 cases have been booked against errant officials since 1986 and not one has been heard by special courts in Maharashtra. Several officers booked by ACB have been reinstated using the state GR. In KDMC alone 16 officers have been reinstated in the past three years pending trial. The most storied case is that of IAS officers Jairaj Pathak and Pradeep Vyas, who were suspended by the state government in March 2012 for their alleged role in the Adarsh scam. They were reinstated in May 2014. Similarly, Ganesh Shimpi, personal assistant to the commissioner of Ulhasnagar Municipal Corporation, was trapped by the ACB in May 2013 for allegedly accepting a bribe of Rs 25,000 from a builder. He resumed office a couple of months ago. The reasoning furnished being: he continued to receive 75 percent of his salary during the time he was suspended, therefore it seemed only appropriate that his abilities as an officer be put to good use in active duty. The problem, according to activists, is two fold - that there is a GR shielding those who have been charged but not convicted two years after initiation of legal proceedings and second, the glacial pace at which such a prosecutorial undertaking proceeds. Right to Information activist and former central information commissioner Shailesh Gandhi cited a study of the Central Bureau of Investigation's anti corruption branch conducted in 2008. The study pertained to cases registered between 1980 and 1984. In the 264 cases recorded, 273 charge sheets were drawn up. The average time for investigation was found to be 13.4 months, while average time for trial was 7 years and 4 months. Of the 273 people against whom charge sheets were prepared, 144 were convicted. However, only four spent more than 20 days in prison. Of the convicted, 96 went into appeal and when the study was under progress in 2008, two decades after the cases had been filed, cases pertaining to 71 were still being heard in higher courts.
