Mumbai cops resort to old ways, put up posters of cricket bookie wanted in 16 cases He had allegedly forged the signature of a doctor attached to Lilavati Hospital, in an attempt to seek temporary bail from the Bombay High Court. MUMBAI Updated: Mar 27, 2018 12:24 IST In an attempt to trace a cricket bookie, the Azad Maidan police have resorted to an age-old method of putting posters of wanted criminals across the town. Thus, many walls in Ulhasnagar have posters with a photo of the wanted bookie – Anil Bhagwandas Jayshinghani, 52. Jayshinghani, an Ulhasnagar resident is wanted by the Azad Maidan police from May 1, 2015 under Sections 420, 465, 467, 468, 471, 474 and 34 of the Indian Penal Code (IPC) for cheating and forgery. He had allegedly forged the signature of a doctor attached to Lilavati Hospital, in an attempt to seek temporary bail from the Bombay High Court. The court had declared him absconding after the doctor said that he had not signed the medical certificate. Assistant Police Inspector (API) Babasaheb Misal from Azad Maidan police station said, “The case dated back to 2015, when the Enforcement Directorate (ED) officers raided two premises, co-owned by Jayshinghani, in connection with betting.” He had then, allegedly, first got admitted to the hospital saying that he was ill. Later, he sought bail in the high court by showing his transit bail on medical grounds alleging that his wife, Karisma Anil Jayshinghani, 41, needed to undergo a CT scan for a surgery, which could not be done without his presence. “Jayshinghani had then submitted a letter signed by a doctor at Lilavati hospital sanctioning his transit bail for three weeks,” said Misal.However, after investigation, the police found that he had presented a bogus certificate in the name of the doctor. “This bookie is accused in over 16 cases registered in Mumbai, Goa, Assam, Ahmedabad and Rajasthan from 1985 to 2017,” said Misal. The officers said they had tried tracing Jayshinghani, but have had no head way yet. The police officers have sent teams to the North east states of the country to look for him as he had been working there too. “We had received a tipoff that he would be in Assam, but we could not trace him. We are now appealing to Ulhasnagar citizens to help us nab him,” said an officer from Azad Maidan police station.

2018-03-19When a leopard comes knocking! Striped animal visits Thane's bustling Ulhasnagar locality; watch video - Financial Express
When a leopard comes knocking! Striped animal visits Thane’s bustling Ulhasnagar locality; watch video People of Thane's Ulhasnagar township went into a panic after the striped animal strayed into their residential locality on Sunday. Caught on camera, the leopard is seen entering a bungalow in the area. Updated: March 19, 2018 12:09 PM A deadly and ferocious leopard wandering about in your locality is a terrorizing thought. However, the fear turned into reality for the residents of Thane. Yes! People of Thane’s Ulhasnagar township went into a panic after the striped animal strayed into their residential locality on Sunday. Caught on camera, the leopard is seen entering a bungalow in an Ulhasnagar’s locality. As per reports, residents of the bungalow in the area were alerted by the security guard after he spotted the feline on CCTV camera. One of the residents said the CCTV footage near the entrance gate showed the leopard entering and leaping the wall. The guard alerted the bungalow’s occupants but the wildcat moved to another location after some time. Officials of the Ulhasnagar Police Station said that the scared residents of the locality locked themselves inside their houses and alerted the forest department about the leopard roaming around in their area. The forest officials then arrived at the site and, after a five-hour effort, rescued the animal who hid in the electrical room of an old bungalow. Range Forest Officer Santosh Kank said after several rounds of search, the forest official team managed to spot and tranquilize the animal. Forest officials and the fire department arrived at the spot around 10.30am and had started the rescue operation. The animal was later taken away to the Sanjay Gandhi National Park. One of the residents in the area, Rajesh Dhamija, was quoted as saying that they had no clue of how the leopard managed to enter the locality and that too in the middle of a bustling town. It was also reported that there are no forests nearby. It is quite shocking for the people of Ulhasnagar as in recent times, leopards have been spotted in the area where big cats were not previously found. In January this year, a leopard was spotted at Yashodham in Goregaon East. Also on January 13, six people were injured after an encounter with a leopard in Mulund East. Another leopard sparked panic in Andheri’s Sher-e-Punjab colony in December last year.

2018-03-18Leopard strays into Ulhasnagar, rescued by forest dept. team - The Hindu
Leopard strays into Ulhasnagar, rescued by forest dept. team MARCH 19, 2018 00:18 IST UPDATED: MARCH 19, 2018 11:39 IST Big cat tranquillised after it enters home, released in Sanjay Gandhi National Park Mumbai: Forest officials rescued a leopard that had strayed into Ulhasnagar early on Sunday, and released it in the Sanjay Gandhi National Park in the afternoon the same day. Senior PI Ghanshyam Palange, Hill Line police station, said, “The big cat was first spotted by a 55-year old woman at 7.30 a.m. Though she tried to alert her family and neighbours, nobody took her seriously as a leopard had not been seen in the area previously.” The police responded to a call from the owner of a coaching centre, whose CCTV camera had captured the leopard. Naresh Bhatia, owner, Sonam Tutorials, said, “The non-teaching staff called me around 8 a.m. about a leopard passing through our building compound and entering the house located opposite. I immediately called the residents of the house and the police after viewing the footage on my phone.” A 20-member team from the Thane Forest Range reached the spot after noon, accompanied by a team from the SGNP. The leopard was found near the staircase of the house it had entered, near the meter room. The big cat was tranquillised through a hole in the wall made by forest officials. The house is owned by Suresh Asrani, 58, a resident for over 30 years. “As it was a Sunday morning, we were asleep when Mr. Bhatia called about the leopard entering our residence. We panicked and locked ourselves in.” The operation to rescue the leopard took nearly three hours, officials said. Mr. Palange said, “It was definitely not from the national park, and it wasn’t a man-eater. It could have travelled through Ambernath from near Barvi Dam, as there are many leopards in that area,” Mr. Palange said. Mohsin Shaikh, an eyewitness, said the leopard killed and ate one of his goats before entering Mr. Asrani’s residence. However, the police said there was no trace of blood or the goat’s remains in the vicinity.

2018-03-16Businessman rescued within 3 hours of abduction, 1 held - Times of India
Businessman rescued within 3 hours of abduction, 1 held Mar 16, 2018, 07:15 IST KALYAN: High drama in Ulhasnagar that lasted three hours saw Thane police rescue a 40-year-old abducted businessman and nab one of his four kidnappers who demanded a ransom of Rs 1 crore to release him. Following considerable negotiations with the victim, though, the kidnappers brought down the ransom demand to Rs 25 lakh. The kidnappers claimed to be part of the Chhota Rajan gang. They allegedly bundled the businessman into a car around 10.30pm on Wednesday, pointed a revolver at him and demanded that he call a relative or a friend and ask him to bring along the cash. The victim’s friend, in turn, informed cops who laid a trap for the kidnappers and nabbed one of them after he ventured out to collect a bag ostensibly filled with cash. The arrested accused has been identified as Saeed Khan (25). The businessman, Naresh Ramnani (40), is a resident of Konark Residency near Shahad station in Ulhasnagar and runs Krishna Tours and Travels. The incident came to light on Thursday night when Ramnani was on his way home. The kidnappers overtook his car and braked to a stop in front of it. They then rushed out and dragged Ramnani into their car. One of the accomplices followed them on a bike. Cops said the accused drove towards Ambernath. Ramnani recalled that one Mishra pointed a revolver at him and said they belonged to the Chhota Rajan gang and that they were from Chembur, before demanding Rs 1crore ransom amount. Ramnani told them that he did not have that kind of money. The demand was subsequently reduced to Rs 25 lakh. On their instructions, Ramnani called up his friend, one Naresh Rohra, and asked him to arrange the money. Police sources said Rohra called up Ramnani’s relatives and approached local Ulhasnagar police, who immediately formed a team of 14 cops and dispatched them to the spot where money was to be collected. The team swooped down on two of the kidnappers who were there to collect the ransom amount. While one of them managed to flee by crossing the railway tracks in the vicinity, Khan jumped into a nullah filled with garbage and hid under mounds of rubbish. Cops, too, entered the nullah and took the fire brigade’s help to trace him in a 40-minute search operation.Cops have learnt that Khan is a resident of Tata Power House area in Kalyan (East) and has multiple cases against him. On interrogation, Khan confessed to the crime and named his associates and said they are from Chembur and Manpada, Dombivli. Ramnani told TOI: “I am very grateful to the police for rescuing me.” D D Palve, senior inspector, Ulhasnagar police, said, “The main accused told the victim that they were attached to the Chhota Rajan gang but we are verifying the claim.” Ankit Goyal, DCP, Zone IV, Thane police, said, “Our team will soon nab the other three.” Although the victim has been rescued, a probe is on to ascertain the involvement of any local or an insider who may have passed on information about him.

Thane police rescues criminal from drain, arrests him for extortion Mumbai March 15, 2018 UPDATED 23:39 IST In an unusual turn of events, Mumbai police today nabbed a criminal from a drain in Ulhasnagar after he fell in it. The accused and one of his aides were being chased by the police in connection with a case of kidnapping and extortion. The police swung into action after a person identified as Naresh Ramnani was threatened by the duo. At around 10.30 pm, the accused intercepted Ramnani's motorbike near a school in Ulhasnagar. Despite Ramnani's efforts to evade he was targeted by two others, suspected to be accomplices of the accused. Following an altercation, Ramnani was pushed into a car. The accused threatened to kill Ramnani if he made any noise. Ramnani told the police that one of the accused held a gun against him and asked for a ransom of Rs 1 crore. "They told me to shell out Rs 1 crore or they would shoot me. I told them that I did not have the amount, but they kept threatening to kill me. Somehow they settled for Rs 25 lakh and asked me to get it from my family. I called my brother and asked him to arrange the money and told him that I was coming to receive the money," Ramnani told the police. Later, the accused drove Ramnani to Ambernath Maharashta Industrial Development Corporation (MIDC) and then asked him to check if the money was ready. The accused soon left towards Kalyan and from there drove the victim back to Ulhasnagar. The men accused spotted police chasing them while they were near Ramnani's friend's house. While the two of them fled from the spot, the other two stayed back with Ramnani. According to Ramnani, one of them even threatened to kill him with a knife. However, the duo was chased from outside the residence of Ramnani by police and the victim's friends. While one of them ran towards the railway tracks, the other fell into a drain. "To pull the accused out of the drain, a fire brigade had to be called. The rescue operation went on for an hour after which the accused was taken into custody," said an officer from Thane Anti-Extortion Cell. The officer added that the duo was part of an armed gang that operated in the locality and targeted individuals for extorting money. Police said they have launched a manhunt to arrest the other members of their gang.

The accused, identified as Sanjay Naravade (25), had allegedly accosted the couple on the Ambernath Titwala Road and tried to rob them. When they resisted, the accused shot the mzan and then raped his girlfriend at gunpoint before making off with their valuables. Police sources said earlier this year, the Shivaji Nagar police station in Thane had registered a robbery case where the victims, also a couple, had been robbed at gunpoint in a secluded spot in Ambernath. The police obtained details of the case and observed similarities in the modus operandi. The accused was believed to be from Ulhasnagar, and inquiries were initiated.

When the police searched the accused’s room, a search yielded a foreign-made revolver and three live rounds. He was taken to Kalyan Taluka police station. The officer said, “Inquiries established Mr. Naravade’s involvement in the crime, and he was subsequently placed under arrest. He has said during interrogation that he bought the pistol from a friend in Aurangabad for ₹25,000. We are tracking this friend and are also finding out if the accused has used the pistol for other illegal activities.” Police have also recovered cell phones of both victims as well as the deceased’s bike keys from the accused.

2018-03-127% water cut to be imposed in MMR from March 19 to July15 - Times of India
7% water cut to be imposed in MMR from March 19 to July15 Updated: Mar 13, 2018, 03:41 IST Navi Mumbai: The irrigation department will impose a 7% cut for four agencies supplying daily drinking water to a vast area in MMR, comprising of seven major civic bodies— besides industrial area— from March 19 till July 15. This is because the onset of summer has led to an estimated 12 % loss of water from reservoirs. Usually, the average loss is 10%.According to sources, Barvi dam has 130 million cubic meter (MCM), while Tata Andre dam has 90 MCM. The four agencies lift 1,870 MLD, including 300 MLD for irrigation from Ulhas river which provides water supply released by two dams. The 7% cut is for drinking water and not for irrigation. Out of 1,870 MLD, 300 MLD is for irrigation supply. The MIDC said as the irrigation department is the decision making authority, it will have to enforce the water cut. The irrigation department said different days in a week have been earmarked for the four agencies that will not be allowed to lift water. MIDC is the bulk supplier, while the others that supply water are KDMC, STEM and MJP. MIDC supplies to Thane, Mira Bhayander, 27 villages of the KDMC and Ulhasnagar, besides the industrial belt and Thane-Belapur belt in Navi Mumbai. STEM supplies water to Sahad, Temghar, Thane and Bhiwandi; while MJP supplies to Ambernath and Badlapur. MJP will not lift water from Ulhas river on Monday, KDMC on Tuesday, STEM on Wednesday and MIDC on Friday. Over the weekend all the four agenices will draw water and pump it. Meanwhile, residents will be affected with this. The civic bodies of Thane, Mira Bhyander, Kalyan Dombivli, Bhiwandi, Ulhasnagar, Ambernath, Badlapur, Shahad and Temghar will be hit. The decision is as per the available water supply in Barvi and Tata Andre dam whose water stock may last till July 15. The department handles various dams in the state and one among them is Barvi dam. It also monitors the water release from Tata Andre dam—both dams release water into the Ulhas river from where four different agencies lift and pump water to several municipal corporations. Last year the cut of 14 % was enforced from November 15 to July 15 in view of less stock in the dams, the department said.

Man who killed 28 year old, raped his girlfriend in Titwala arrested: Police The accused is an autorickshaw driver from Ulhasnagar, police said. Police have identified him as 30 year-old Sanjay Narvade, a resident of Ulhasnagar. “He has confessed to the crime,” said an officer investigating the case. Mumbai | Published: March 12, 2018 4:57 am THE Thane rural police Crime Branch on Sunday arrested a man, who allegedly shot dead a 28-year-old man and raped his girlfriend on the Ambernath-Chinchpada road in Titwala on March 5. The accused is an autorickshaw driver from Ulhasnagar, police said. Police have identified him as 30-year-old Sanjay Narvade, a resident of Ulhasnagar. “We used our informants and trapped him in Ulhasnagar. He has confessed to the crime,” said an officer investigating the case. On March 5, Ganesh Dinkar (28) and his girlfriend went on a long ride on the secluded road between Ambernath and Chinchpada. But when they halted at a spot near Teen-Jhar, they were allegedly accosted by the accused, who demanded they hand over their valuables and asked the woman to accompany him. When Dinkar intervened, the accused allegedly shot him, killing him on the spot. He then took the 30-year-old woman behind the bushes and allegedly raped her, before fleeing with the couple’s valuables. The woman’s cries were heard by some passersby from nearby Nalimbi village. They alerted the Ambernath police, who lodged the case and sent the man to a hospital. According to investigators, Narvade allegedly committed the crime because he thought the couple would have money. “He saw the motorcycle and as it was an expensive model, he believed they would have money,” an officer said. The accused was nabbed from Ulhasnagar on Sunday afternoon and will be presented before a court on Monday, officials said. “The investigation is still in progress. We are investigating if he had accomplices. We are yet to ascertain where he got a pistol from,” said a senior officer. According to sources, the 30-year-old driver sometimes ferried people between Ambernath and Chinchpada and was familiar with the road. The Titwala police station and the Thane Rural Crime Branch are both investigating the case. “We had more than four teams looking for the accused. His sketch helped in identifying him, along with other technical evidence,” said an officer investigating the case. Meanwhile, the Titwala police have urged other couples to come forward if they have been in similar situations. “In course of our investigation, we were told by local residents that since the area is frequented by couples looking for privacy, several drunkards and other anti-social elements harass them. These couples don’t lodge a complaint because they don’t want their identities revealed. But if these people approach us with their complaints, we shall ensure that their names are kept confidential. Their complaints can help us manage the law and order better,” said a senior officer from Thane rural police.

2018-03-11Chinchwad petrol pump battles slur on social media - Pune Mirror
CHINCHWAD PETROL PUMP BATTLES SLUR ON SOCIAL MEDIA Updated: Mar 12, 2018, 02.30 AM IST Staff working at the Jaihind Highway Service Station — a petrol pump near Chinchwad railway station — have been receiving strange stares from customers over the last three days. The hint seems to be that the men at the pump are engaging in unscrupulous acts. This behaviour seems to have been triggered by a video clip that went viral a week ago showing an employee of a petrol pump being beaten up after they were allegedly caught red-handed while indulging in petrol pilferage. The mischief seems to be in the post that says the incident happened at Jaihind though the pump owner points out that the only similarity between the two pumps is that both are Bharat Petroleum outlets.Amit Vijaykumar Desai, the owner of Jaihind, goes to great lengths to clarify the differences between his pump and the one doing the rounds on social media, now identified as being located at Ulhasnagar. Desai claims somebody has deliberately used Jaihind’s name to defame him. Now the owner of the pump has approached the cybercrime cell of Pune police and has lodged a complaint at Pimpri police station against the unknown miscreant under the Information Technology Act, 2000 and section 499 of Indian Penal Code (IPC) for defaming his reputation so that action can be initiated and his reputation can be restored. According to Desai he received the viral clip from his manager on Friday. The video had been posted along with a list of malpractices purportedly going on at his petrol pump. He also informed that many regular customers had started asking questions trying to ascertain whether it was their petrol pump that was responsible. “We checked the images and confirmed that it belonged to some other petrol pump and that the video had gone viral since February 20,” said a visibly agitated Desai. The Jaihind owner added, “We came to know that the pump that was featured on the video on social media was located at Ulhasnagar where an employee, Sheru Singh, had allegedly filled less petrol than the actual measurement. We are facing embarrassment without any reason and defamation can subsequently follow. We have demanded strict action against the culprit.” An official attached with the Pimpri police station said, “The clip in question has already gone viral on social media. But it appears that somebody out of professional or personal rivalry inserted the name of the Chinchwad Station petrol pump. We are taking help of the cybercrime cell to identify the culprit,” said the officer. “The intention of culprit seems to be to defame the pump. We are looking into all possible angles.” We came to know that the pump featured on the social media was located at Ulhasnagar where an employee, Sheru Singh, had allegedly filled less petrol than the actual measurement. We are facing embarrassment without any reason
