Car dealer lied to me, Kalani tells cops Updated: Nov 25, 2018, 08:59 IST Omie Kalani filed the case against the dealer at Ulhasnagar police station after Mirror’s report on Friday. Files cheating case, saying he bought Range Rover after the dealer claimed its registration included his favourite combination 7777. Politician Omie Kalani, whose well-known preference for the combination ‘7777’ has landed him in a fake number-plate controversy, on Friday night accused his car dealer of selling him a Range Rover with a bogus registration. Omie filed a complaint of cheating against the dealer at the Ulhasnagar police station after Mirror reported on Friday morning that the plate number, MH04 GE 7777, had been actually allotted to a Mercedes Benz owned by a developer. The fact came to light after an activist spotted Omie’s white Range Rover speeding on Kalyan-Shilphata road on November 3 and looked up the vehicle’s details on Vahan app. Omie, son of politicians Jyoti and Pappu Kalani, has now told cops that he had no idea that the registration number belonged to another vehicle owner. He alleges that Ulhasnagar car dealer Amit Panjwani persuaded him to buy the Range Rover about four months ago by lying that 7777 was part of the registration number.

Silence Can Sometimes Be A Win-Win Situation Nov 23, 2018, 07:16 IST The report detailed how Ulhasnagar residents used to be disturbed during 43 days at this time of the year, jarred out of their sleep by the sound of bhajans blaring from loudspeakers This paper carried a heart warming report of a community in Ulhasnagar which has switched to wearing headphones for bhajans. The report detailed how Ulhasnagar residents used to be disturbed during 43 days at this time of the year, jarred out of their sleep by the sound of bhajans blaring from loudspeakers. This year, organisers of a Trust which used to hold the bhajan-kirtan meet took into account the residents' woes and have provided every person attending the meet a pair of headphones on which to listen to the bhajans. The Trust says they are handing out headphones gratis to the almost 15,000 devotees that congregate at a maidan in the locality. These are to be returned daily. This is the correct response by organisers of a religious Trust. We must respect the sentiments of the larger populace and think of implementing a solution that works for all. It is a win-win situation for everybody. It is a stellar example of how to co-exist and not be whipped into a frenzy of umbrage and outrage when there is any kind of question raised over an issue with a religious aspect. Troublemakers often try to stir the communal pot; because it is easy to rile people claiming somebody is disrespecting a religion or shouting about discrimination. Logic then goes out of the window and people's minds become like putty, amenable to manipulation. This is exactly what politicians at all levels, designed to create and benefit from rifts do. What we can do is look through these attempts, and simply blow them away. Respect the other, and see reason in their demands if they warrant it. Like this Trust and its devotees have done. There is strength in silence and in this case, it is the strength of unity and oneness.

2018-11-23Decomposing body of an infant found on terrace of Nalasopara building - Times Now
Decomposing body of an infant found on terrace of Nalasopara building Updated Nov 23, 2018 In a gut-wrenching incident reported from Nalasopara, a new-born baby was killed, body was wrapped in a plastic bag and thrown on a terrace. A flat was being repaired in the building, hence, terrace was open. Vasai: In a gut-wrenching incident reported from Nalasopara, a new-born baby was killed, his body was wrapped in a plastic bag and thrown on a terrace. The lack of a CCTV in the building in Ranjanpada locality made it tougher for the police to nab the perpetrator of the crime. Subsequently, a police team has been mobilised to nab the accused at the earliest and they are combing through the entire area for the same. Operators at the Tulinj police station got information that an infant's body was thrown in a plastic bag on the terrace of Sakshi Building in Ranjanpada, Nalasopara east. Police immediately reached the spot and found the body of the infants and initial probe suggested that the body was decomposing since the past two days. A flat was being repaired in the building, hence, the terrace was opened but it was not frequented by the residents. Eye on Maternity Homes The police sent the body for post-mortem and a report would be obtained in two days. Since there were no CCTV cameras in the building, there are obstacles in the investigation. However, the accused would be found out, police said. Another possible lead in the case can come from the Maternity Homes in Ranjanpada. Deceased infant found near school in Ulhasnagar Earlier, a new-born baby girl was found near New Ira School in Ulhasnagar. The body was discovered when a resident, Rakesh Rajaudiya, was crossing the area and his dog stopped near the school gate. When Rakesh went to rescue the dog, he found the dead infant. He informed the police about this and a case has been registered in the Central Police Station.

Maharashtra: Three arrested by Ulhasnagar police for stealing a truck full of eggs Updated: Nov 23, 2018, 06:50 AM IST Egg thieves who stole a truck loaded with eggs worth Rs 5 lacs near Ambernath were arrested by Ulhasnagar police within 72 hours. The accused and his three accomplices committed this robbery as the former was under heavy debt and was trying to make up for it through this loot. On Thursday, Ulhasnagar crime branch arrested Saadat Ansari, a resident of Bhiwandi, for stealing a truck and kidnapping the driver and his son. The incident took place on November 19 around 3.15am when Mohammed Nabi Shaikh was driving a truck loaded with 1.48 lakh eggs worth Rs 5 lacs on Ambernath Badlapur road. The eggs were bought from Hyderabad to be delivered to Maharashtra Eggs Centre at Woollen Chawl, Ambernath. When the truck reached T-circle near Green city a four-wheeler stopped in front of it. Four men got down from the car and threatened Shaikh and his son at knifepoint. "They blindfolded the duo a cloth and put them in their car while one of the accused took away the truck with him," says a police official from Ulhasnagar crime branch. The thieves then took Shaikh and Muzammil to a jungle in Titwala's Rayte area and took away their mobile phone and Rs 2000 cash. Then they dumped them in the jungle and escaped from the spot. The driver and his son managed to reach the police the next morning and lodged a police complaint. Based on their description of the thieves and about the areas where the thieves took them while being blindfolded, the cops managed to trace the prime accused Saadat. "We caught Saadat from Bhiwandi's Mahapoli village. He confessed that he was under heavy debt and hence, committed the crime to pay the money he owed to others," says the cop. The cops also recovered the truck, the eggs and the car that was used to commit the crime. While the other three accused in the case are absconding, Saadat will be produced in Kalyan court on Friday for further custody.

2018-11-23What's 007? Omie Kalani has 7777 - Mumbai Mirror
What’s 007? Omie Kalani has 7777 Updated: Nov 23, 2018, 09:49 IST The political family is so superstitious that his wife, Ulhasnagar mayor, started a garbage helpline no. ending with 7777. Fondness for a four-digit number may spell trouble for politician Pappu Kalani’s son Omie Kalani. A social activist had filed a police complaint that Omie is illegally using registration numbers ending in ‘7777’ of other vehicles on two of his luxury SUVs. Omie is known to have a penchant for the 7777 combination. Sources said all of his vehicles end in these four digits. Even a civic helpline for garbage collection— 9858337777—that his wife and Ulhasnagar Mayor Pancham Kalani launched recently found no escape. On November 3, Binu Varghese, an activist from Thane, spotted a Range Rover (MH04 GE7777) with tinted windows speeding on the Kalyan-Shilphata road. He quickly fired up the Vahan app of the regional transport department (RTO) and found that the registration number belonged to a Mercedes Benz of Director of Ashar Developers Ajay Pratap Ashar. He then alerted the Thane traffic police control room. “I found it suspicious that a vehicle of a different make was listed on the app,” said Varghese. The Range Rover was intercepted in Mumbra, and the police found Omie himself inside. “He asked the personnel to let him off, saying he could send the registration papers to them later,” said a police official. The documents never turned up. Varghese decided to do some more digging, and found that another Range Rover belonging to the politically powerful Kalani family— Omie’s mother Jyoti Kalani is an NCP MLA from Ulhasnagar and Pappu was a four-time MLA from the same constituency—bears the registration number of a Toyota Innova Crysta (MH05 DH7777). “I took it up with the authorities, suspecting that a fake registration number scam was afoot. It’s possible that Omie Kalani was cheated, too,” said Varghese. He cautioned that in case of an accident involving vehicles with false registration numbers, the real owners could get in trouble. He alleged that the Thane police have been sitting on his complaint and are yet to fire an FIR. “We have put on paper the facts and have sent aletter to the Daighar police for further inquiry,” said Sambhaji Jadhav, senior inspector of police, Mumbra traffic division, which had intercepted the first Range Rover. Amit Kale, deputy commissioner of police (traffic), Thane, said he is cognisant of the issue. “We will write to the RTO, seeking details of the vehicles.” Another Thane police official said the delay in registering an FIR is owing to confusion over whether sections of the Motor Vehicles Act or of the Indian Penal Code would be invoked in this case. Omie claimed that his penchant for the ‘7777’ combination has been exploited and that he has been a victim of “mischief”. “I keep buying and selling vehicles as I am a partner with an automobile dealer. I use some of the vehicles from the showroom till they are sold. I suspect that the agent through whom I purchased the two cars used these numbers to lure me to buy them.”

2018-11-22Ulhasnagar Sikhs show the way with headphones bhajan - Mid-Day
Ulhasnagar Sikhs Show The Way With Headphones Bhajan Nov 22, 2018, 07:54 IST Devotees wear headphones for 3 am satsang during the 43-day period to observe Guru Nanak Jayanti; local residents welcome move Residents living around Gol Maidan in Ulhasnagar used to dread the 43 days in November and December, when they would be jarred out of their sleep at 3 am every day by the sound of bhajans blaring from loudspeakers. This year, however, the organisers have decided to be mindful of the residents' woes and have provided every person attending the meet a pair of headphones on which to listen to the bhajans. Every year, the Amritvela Trust of Ulhasnagar organises a 43-day bhajan-kirtan meet on the occasion of Guru Nanak Jayanti that falls on November 23. Around 10,000 to 15,000 people attend this meet every year from Mumbai and Thane. This year, the meet started on November 11. The residents have local resident and social activist Sarita Khanchandani to thank for this development. Khanchandani had filed a petition in Bombay High Court last year against the Amritvela Group for causing noise pollution early in the morning. She said, "They earlier used to conduct these bhajan meets on a small scale, but from 2015 their followers increased and they started using the huge Gol Maidan in Ulhasnagar. The sound caused during this meet made it impossible for people to get a good night's sleep for a month-and-a-half. Most people have to go to work the next day and need their sleep." She added, "While we respect all religions, observing it should not inconvenience others. After my petition in 2017, the group has started using headphones to listen to their bhajans." An Amritvela Group member, Bobby Arora, said, "We decided to use headphones keeping in mind the inconvenience caused to residents living nearby. Last year, we had tried this as a pilot and this year the almost 15,000 people who will join us will have headphones with which to listen to bhajans. It is free of cost." He added, "Our trust hands out the headphones at the entrance and everyone hands them back at the end of the session. People have liked this new idea very much. Many government officials, too, have appreciated our initiative as there are no more complaints from citizens like there used to be every year." The headphones have been bought with the donations that the trust receives, Arora said, adding that the trust was a very big name in Punjab. Aarti Jaiswal, a resident of the Ulhasnagar area where this meet is held, said, "It is good to be tolerant and inclusive, considering how many religions we have in our county. But, being jolted out of our sleep at 3am for 45 days is expecting too much from us. We are extremely happy to hear about the devotees being given headphones. The meet is now conducted peacefully to everyone's satisfaction. An Amritvela group member told us that they started using headphones so that residents did not have to suffer anymore. Now, I, too, would like to join them at least one day this year." Pratik Mulchandani, another resident, said, "It is such a huge relief. Handling the loud sound every morning for 45 days used to be very hard. We have suffered for years because of this. I am very happy to see that they have come up with a fantastic solution to ensure everyone is happy."

Thane: 1 held for fleeing with truck loaded with 1.40 lakh eggs Updated: Nov 23, 2018, 00:01 IST THANE: The city crime branch solved the 1.40 lakh egg robbery case with the arrest of one person along Ambernath-Badlapur highway recently. However, three others managed to give the cops the slip. Eggs worth Rs 4.70 lakh were seized by the cops. On Sunday, at 3.15am, the truck loaded with 1.40 lakh eggs was being transported from Hyderabad and was heading towards Ambernath-Badlapur highway. Suddenly, a speeding car stopped the truck and attacked the driver, Nabi Shaikh, and his 17-year-old son. The accused then blindfolded them and took them to a jungle in Titwala and left them there.

They sold nearly 22,000 eggs in the market. A case was then registered with the Ambernath police under Sections 394, 341, 363 and 34 of the Indian Penal Code. The Ulhasnagar crime branch unit was carrying out a parallel probe and took the victims to the crime scene. Based on a tip-off, the police laid a trap and arrested one of the accused, identified as Sadat. The cops recovered 1.16 lakh eggs. During the probe, he told investigators that he was suffering huge losses and was debt ridden.

Guru Nanak Jayanti 2018: This gurudwara in Ulhasnagar uses headphones to keep chaliya hushed Updated: Nov 23, 2018, 08:22 AM IST Those resisting the government's efforts to curb noise pollution caused by religious celebrations could do with a page out of Amritvela Gurudwara's book. To not disturb the neighbourhood with its 'chaliya', the gurudwara in Ulhasnagar, near Mumbai, will be conducting the programme using bluetooth heaphones. Sikhs congregate to sing devotional songs in the wee hours of morning in the Chaliya, which begins 40 days before Guru Nanak Dev's birthday. The Amritvela Gurudwara holds the programme, called Sikh Bhakti Sangeet, in Gole Maidan between 3 am and 5 am, and close to 10,000 people take part in it. As many as two lakh devotees participate in the congregations that span the entire period by the chaliya, which ends with a big celebration. For the past two years, they have been distributing bluetooth headphones so that devotees are free to move around, and yet listen to the Gurbani and sermons. "Earlier, we used to conduct the satsang over loudspeakers," says Hoshiar Singh Labana of the Amritvela Pariwar, "This would disturb the residents, as the locality is densly populated. So we introduced headphones and now people come to see this novel practice. We also use instruments that make a softer sound." Devotees also welcome the innovation. "We enjoy the same experience we would get through a loudspeaker. We are happy with the use of technology," a disciple says. "The effort has helped notably in reducing noise pollution and its definitely an example to others," says another devotee.

2018-11-21Breathless in Ambernath - Mumbai Mirror
Breathless in Ambernath Updated: Nov 21, 2018, 10:13 IST As industrial township grows, residents find a dumpyard and manufacturing units have made it unliveable. The first thing Chunilal Jadhav does when I meet him at Ambernath station is buy me a breathing mask. Over the last decade, the middle-aged businessman has seen his quiet and sparsely populated township become unrecognisable. The 2011 census put Ambernath’s population at 2.54 lakh; the current estimate is 6 lakh. Yearning to own a home of their own, Mumbaikars are flocking to Ambernath, lured by the relatively low prices: a one-bedroom flat costs between Rs 20 lakh and Rs 40 lakh. But what the glossy brochures and tempting advertisements on housing portals do not say is that these flats have been allowed to be built in the vicinity of a dumping ground and industrial units, ignoring the lessons of Bhopal 1984. Ambernath has for long been an industrial zone, and is still promoted as one. Chemical, pharmaceutical and engineering plants are densely packed in the three manufacturing units run by the Maharashtra Industrial Development Corporation (MIDC). BMC can now give environmental nod for housingMoEF says all local bodies can give clearance for areas between 20,000 and 50,000 sqm; city builders say it will save them time. The suburb’s dumping ground, spread over 24 acres on the Badlapur pipeline road, was once considered far away from human habitation. Not any longer. Today, residential buildings surround the 40-ft-high mounds of garbage, both dry and wet. Dotted with small fires, it emanates smoke and a foul smell, 24x7. It was to warn potential buyers of these twin sources of pollution that Jadhav and his fellow members of Ambernath Citizens’ Forum (ACF) formed a human chain on Diwali day. The ACF, made up of original Ambernath residents, has been fighting a lone battle, filing complaints with the Maharashtra Pollution Control Board (MPCB), the Ambernath Municipal Council and the police—who have refused to register pollution-related complaints— holding demonstrations and even a no-tax campaign. But on Diwali day, they were joined by newer residents. Some of these live in Nisarg Greens, a new residential project opposite the railway tracks. Barely 100 m behind the tracks lies the Morivali MIDC. On November 5, a chemical plant there caught fire, leaving four workers injured. It took four hours to douse the fire. While memory of the fire will soon fade, what doesn’t go away is the smell of chemicals from MIDC units. It is this smell that prevents Nisarg Greens homemaker Swati Biramne from taking her two-year-old out after 6 pm. He is the reason the family moved from Ulhasnagar, which has no open space. “My husband developed a persistent cough after we shifted,” says Swati’s mother-in-law. “Forget walks, we can’t even open our windows,” says Poonam Talekar, another resident. “We paid extra for a road-facing view and a higher floor.” Even homes facing away from the Morivali MIDC unit, like that of Bhavna Amrute, have their windows closed after 6 pm. Even at 2 pm, when I visit the complex, a faint whiff of chemicals hangs in the air. Bearing its brunt are the watchmen at the entrance. One of them has had to see a doctor six times in the past two years. “There’s nothing like fresh air here,” says the other. Fires have erupted twice in the last two years at the dumping ground. The residents’ anger has prompted the developers to take action. “We have asked residents to send us their complaints so that we can take them up with the Pollution Control Board,” says Nisarg Greens site manager Himanshu Satra. Over the last year, says Satra, 600 flats have been sold in the six completed buildings (28 are planned). While Satra claims that there has been no cancellation or dip in sales, Ulhasnagar businessman Rajesh Gupta says he has dropped his plan to follow his former neighbours, the Biramnes, to their new location. “I spent many evenings there. The air is unbearably polluted,” he says. Nisarg Green residents, however, do not have that choice. So they hope, desperately, that their complaints will spur the authorities to act. “We are not asking for the closure of all chemical plants; that will render many jobless,” says Bhakti Navangul, a local. “But the authorities should close down at least the worst offenders. And they should make them raise the height of their chimneys.”

2018-11-20"One Day Amazon Will Fail," Warns CEO Jeff Bezos, If Company Forgets To Focus On Its Customers - India Times
"One Day Amazon Will Fail," Warns CEO Jeff Bezos, If Company Forgets To Focus On Its Customers Updated: Nov 20, 2018, 12:31 PM IST Amazon has been riding a wave of success this past month. It's retail and cloud computing business is booming, their stock is at an all time high, and just this past week they announced their new HQ2 locations. Yet, CEO Jeff Bezos had a dire warning for employees. According to CNBC, at a recent company all-hands meet in Seattle, Bezos predicted that Amazon would one day go bankrupt. "Amazon is not too big to fail," he said, according to audio from the meeting the publication reviewed. "In fact, I predict one day Amazon will fail. Amazon will go bankrupt. If you look at large companies, their lifespans tend to be 30-plus years, not a hundred-plus years." It's a strange admission to make, especially since Amazon just announced that its prestigious HQ2 would be split between New York's Long Island City, and the suburbs of Washington, D.C. The expansion, they claim, will bring 25,000 new jobs in each location. The tech giant has for months been having cities across the US bid for to be the location for the new headquarters. Because of the jobs and money expected to come in thanks to an Amazon expansion, these cities have been throwing subsidies at Amazon as incentive to pick them. At the moment, life couldn't be better for the e-commerce monolith. But all that success is exactly why Bezos is determined to look at the company's distant future, and not just the here and now. He believes that their vigilance will be the only thing to prolong the company's lifespan. "If we start to focus on ourselves, instead of focusing on our customers, that will be the beginning of the end," he said. "We have to try and delay that day for as long as possible."
2018-11-20Ambernath locals take to social media to discourage homebuyers - Daily News & Analysis
Ambernath locals take to social media to discourage homebuyers Updated: Nov 20, 2018, 06:40 AM IST Ambernath locals are worried about their safety after a fire in a chemical factory in the recent past. Residents' concern over security, rising levels of pollution due to close proximity with dumping grounds and the negligence of authorities have resulted in them starting a campaign to dissuade homebuyers from buying houses in Ambernath, Badlapur, Ulhasnagar, and so on. The fire occurred in an Ambernath-based chemical factory on November 5. Soon after the incident, locals took to social media to make prospective homebuyers aware of the deplorable conditions they live in. "Pollution in Ambernath is a daily affair. There is a dumping ground in the middle of the township which causes 80 per cent of the pollution. The pollution further leads to respiratory ailments in people," Dhananjay Moolya, a 43-year-old resident of Navrenagar in Ambernath said. "Due to political influence and initiative of realtors, real estate projects keep coming up in the area. Our lives have already been spoilt but, we do not want others to come here and suffer," he said. Born in Ambernath, Moolya said pollution in the city has doubled over the years with an increase in population and also because of MIDC's presence. "Only last week we learnt that factories in MIDC release effluents into nullahs without treating them. Poisonous gases emitted from these effluents lead to respiratory problems," Moolya said. Satyajit Burman, president of the Ambernath citizens' forum (ACF) and a resident, said that two dumping grounds in the east and the west of the town are always set on fire; this leads to pollution and breathing problems. "People cannot breathe due to the fire at dumping grounds and builders go around calling this smog as fog from Matheran," Burman further said. The residents are tired of complaining to the Maharashtra Pollution Control Board (MPCB) and to local authorities. Hence, the disillusioned residents took to social media to give vent to their anger. "We are making posts on social media accounts of property portals asking people to refrain from buying homes in Ambernath, Badlapur, Ulhasnagar and even in Dombivli or Kalyan,"Moolya said. "We will also go to court if need be," he added. On being contacted, Devidas Pawar, CO (chief officer), Ambernath Municipal Council, assured that the township will be free of pollution in the next six months. "We have bought a 33-acre-plot in Chikhloli to carry out scientific land filling with the state's due approval. We will issue tenders in the next 15 days and scientific waste management will shift to Chikhloli," Pawar said. "I assure that residents will get respite from pollution in the next six months," he said. He also said that guards have been posted outside the current landfill site to ensure that nobody sets garbage on fire.

2018-11-13Biker killed as wife, toddler and passersby watch on busy road - Times of India
Biker killed as wife, toddler and passersby watch on busy road Nov 13, 2018, 05:50 IST MUMBAI: In the eighth reported murder in 11 days in the Kalyan-Bhiwandi-Ulhasnagar belt, a 32-year-old biker, Aavesh Ansari, was murdered by his neighbour and his two aides in front of his wife and three-yearold son on a busy road on Sunday night. 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.

2018-11-12Mumbai: Boy from shelter home undergoes 12-hour surgery for rare spinal defect - The Indian Express
Mumbai: Boy from shelter home undergoes 12-hour surgery for rare spinal defect “The surgery was expensive. Several hospitals had no expertise to conduct the surgery, so we had to drop the plan,” Pratiksha Pratap, superintendent at the Children Shelter Home in Ulhasnagar, said. Published: November 13, 2018 3:35:51 am A DECADE after he went missing and two years after the shelter home he lived in initiated efforts to get him treated, Rajesh Ganesh Shinde, now 16, underwent a 12-hour surgery at GT Hospital last month to correct a congenital spinal bone defect that had forced his spine to bend to 90 degrees. Pratiksha Pratap, superintendent at the Children Shelter Home in Ulhasnagar, said she started looking for treatment options for Rajesh in 2015. “He could not sleep on his back as the spinal bone projected out. He had pain while sitting or getting up,” she said. The home officials first took Rajesh to hospitals in Thane, later to Nair hospital, and then to JJ hospital. “The surgery was expensive. Several hospitals had no expertise to conduct the surgery, so we had to drop the plan,” Pratap said. A student of Class X, Rajesh does not remember his parents’ names. “My father has passed away and I don’t know where my mother is,” he said. Records with shelter home show that police had found him injured in a train accident at Thane station and handed him to the child welfare committee. Rajesh was then shifted to the Ulhasnagar shelter home. Rajesh said the pain worsened after the train accident. This year, following a donation of Rs 80,000 from a private organisation, the shelter home restarted its efforts to treat him. Orthopaedic surgeon Dr Dheeraj Sonawane of GT Hospital said Rajesh suffers from a condition called kyphosis that could be hereditary, or formed during pregnancy. Doctors claimed such deformity can lead to paralysis if the spine, bent at 90 degrees, affects the nerve bundle running through it. On October 8, Rajesh was admitted to GT hospital. He had to miss his half-yearly exams. “It used to pain a lot. I remember spending last several years in pain. So, there was no option but to skip exams,” he said. “There were multiple challenges even during surgery. He could suffer paralysis if the nerves were affected during surgery, or there could be blood loss. We had a very small window to remove the clubbed vertebra in spine and we could not risk touching the cord,” Sonawane said. A MRI, CT scan and 3D X-ray showed two vertebras in his lower back were fused and bent outward creating a ‘V’ shape in spine. For a straight posture, Rajesh had to force the rest of his spine to bend. In a 12-hour surgery starting 9 am on October 26, the clubbed vertebra bone was removed. It was covered with a mesh cage and replaced in the spinal column. Before the surgery, doctors consulted US-based Dr Lawrence G Lenke and Singapore-based Dr Gabriel Liu to understand how to approach the spinal bone. The major challenge was to remove the bone without touching the spinal cord. A neuro-monitor, usually used for brain surgeries, was used and a technician was specially called from Surat to assess whether there was any friction of spinal cord during surgery that could cause paralysis. “He will be discharged in few days now,” Pratap said, adding that while initial cost of operation was beyond a lakh, the surgery became possible after Rajesh was enrolled in Mahatma Jyotiba Phule Jan Arogya Yojana, the state government’s health insurance scheme for the poor.

2018-11-12Abandoned Years Ago on Rly Station, Love Story of These Orphans is Better Than Any Film! - The Better India
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.” 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.

2018-11-11Kalyan RPF busts flesh trade racket, one arrested - Mumbai Mirror
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.

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.

2018-11-06Drivers, conductors caught dancing, riding bikes after claiming severe disabilities - Mumbai Mirror
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.

Updated:Nov 1, 2018, 08:30AM IST 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।
2018-11-01These traders are fighting Flipkart, Amazon by getting their town blacklisted - Gadgets Now
These traders are fighting Flipkart, Amazon by getting their town blacklisted Nov 1, 2018, 01:30 PM IST ULHASNAGAR: The pushback from brick-and-mortar seems to be taking the shape of a cyber war. Feeling the pinch due to huge discounts offered by online stores, traders from Ulhasnagar plan to bombard e-commerce sites with fake orders hoping that it will lead to the companies blocking their town. There have been cases of areas being blocked for delivery by e-stores following huge rejections; the traders aim to make use of this provision for their own benefit. This was decided at a meeting of the traders' association on Monday to plan a strategy for the festival season, as they have have been suffering losses due to the lucrative deals given by online stores. The traders said crores of shopkeepers across the country will continue to suffer if the government does not take steps to rein in the online stores. Explaining the strategy, a trader said they would place huge orders online and reject the items during delivery. "If there are a huge number of rejections from a particular area, then online stores will automatically block the area code for sale," a trader said adding that they also aim to rope in their relatives and staffers. The traders believe some cities in the country are already using the same modus operandi to control online sales in their area. However, when asked about the legality of their plan, a trader said it lies in the grey area so they may not face any action. They said that in future, traders in the neighbouring Kalyan-Dombivli, Thane and Mumbai, who too are facing the same problem, may also deploy the same strategy. Sujeetsingh Valecha, president of Mobile Bazaar Market in Ulhasnagar, said, "The way online sales is growing is not only causing loss to crores of brick and mortar stores, but posing a threat to the jobs of their staff... The online companies, by giving discounts to customers, are also creating loss of revenue for government as they pay less taxes." Rishi Kamria, a member of the All India Mobile Retailers' Association, said, "Due to schemes offered by the online stores this festival season, the offline retailers are facing huge loss. If the trend continues, many will have to close their shops due to losses."

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.

2018-11-012 firemen who died in well tragedy were feted for work - Times of India
2 firemen who died in well tragedy were feted for work 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. Updated: Nov 2, 2018, 01:09 IST 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. ”
