2014-05-30Campa residents play Partition refugee card, SC to
Campa residents play Partition refugee card, SC to hear plea Swati Deshpande | TNN | May 30, 2014, 11.41 PM IST MUMBAI: Friday brought a brief reprieve for the residents of illegal flats at Worli's Campa Cola compound. The Supreme Court agreed to hear on June 3 a fresh petition filed by its six housing societies. The residents, who went to a new law firm, have filed a petition for relief against BMC-ordered demolition, which the SC had upheld last year. The contention now is that several facts are yet to be brought to the court's attention which have the potential for altering the residents' fate. Earlier Mukul Rohtagi used to appear for the residents in the SC, but since his appointment as attorney general, he cannot appear for them. The earlier AG Goolam Vahanvati used to represent the BMC in the SC. Not a single resident of the illegal apartments submitted his flat keys to the BMC on Friday, the second day of the stipulated timeframe for doing so. Meanwhile, as society members are hoping that the SC may yet come to their rescue against the civic demolition order, a resident of Mid-Town building in the complex has come up with the plea that Sindhi migrant inhabitants cannot be evicted. If this argument is accepted, the BMC will find it impossible to demolish any of the flats given that Sindhi flat owners are scattered across different floors in the complex. In a letter to CM Prithviraj Chavan and BMC chief Sitaram Kunte through her lawyer N R Sachdev, Vandana Mirani, a senior citizen residing in flat 1502 in Mid-Town, has said she had migrated from west Pakistan during the Partition. She claims she is entitled to protection under the Displaced Persons Act, Refugees Act and on the basis of an ordinance that protects a 'class' of persons who migrated from Sindh and settled in Ulhasnagar settlements. Mirani told TOI, "We got this idea when the family of an ailing Partition refugee, C V Chawla of Orchid Apartment, pointed out that this was the second time he would be displaced. A member then chanced upon this facet of law." Sachdev said she intends to approach the SC for violation of her fundamental right to equality.Mirani says she is a 'refugee' too and that other Sindhis whose ancestors migrated from west Pakistan also reside in Campa Cola. Sachdev cited a 1950 Supreme Court judgment in Chiranjitlal Chowdhuri v/s Union of India and others which said that "law may be constitutional even it relates to a single individual. A single individual may be treated a class by himself". Sachdev said the SC has not been informed about the state government's 2006 ordinance which gives special status to refugees of west Pakistan. He argued that as in Ulhasnagar, where Sindhis are protected, Mirani and others at Campa Cola are also entitled to protection. "There cannot be discrimination between Sindhis residing at Ulhasnagar and those residing at Worli," he said.The BMC has told residents to vacate the flats and hand over keys to the ward office between May 29 and June 2. "If they don't respond to our notice by June 2, we will go to court again," said an official.
2014-05-29Kalyan school decides to scrap management quota fr
Kalyan school decides to scrap management quota from 2015-16 Pradeep Gupta | TNN | May 29, 2014, 11.58 PM IST KALYAN: Birla School, which was attacked by Maharashtra Navnirman Sena (MNS) workers led by MLA Prakash Bhoir, for not granting admission to Marathi students, has decided to scrap its management quota from the next academic year (2015-16), claiming that it was at the root of the problem. The school, run by the CBSE board, attracts children of many politicians from the area. However, due to the limited number of seats, if often faces the ire of parents and political leaders. School sources alleged the violence was triggered following the denial of admission to the son of a party leader's supporter. Sources said the management has 12 seats under the quota system, under which it normally grants admission to the children of their staff who work at Century Rayon, which is owned by the Birlas, and other people on priority basis. O R Chitlangia, chairman of the school, said, "We keep our admission process very transparent. To avoid controversy for admissions, we have decided to scrap the management quota system from 2015-16. We have given advance information about it on our school website."The Thane police have increased security at the school to avoid further attacks, as MNS leaders had threatened to target it again if their demands were not met. The school management was not ready to speak to the media against the MNS, but school staff as well as parents whose children are studying there, were unhappy with the police inaction against MNS workers. The Mahatma Phule police registered a case against 15 people on the basis of CCTV footage from the school. The footage showed them damaging school furniture. Five persons were arrested but were later released on bail.Sources said that while producing the accused before the Kalyan court, the police did not demand their further custody. Legal experts said the police could have secured their custody if they approached the court, saying there were still searching for the remaining 10. "It is really unfortunate that the school was damaged badly, and staffers were manhandled, but the accused in such a serious case were released on bail within a few hours of their arrest," said a parent from Ulhasnagar whose son is studying in the school.
2014-05-29MNS men vandalize Kalyan school - Times of India
MNS men vandalize Kalyan school Pradeep Gupta | TNN | May 29, 2014, 06.48 AM IST KALYAN: Several Maharashtra Navnirman Sena (MNS) workers, led by party MLA Prakash Bhoir, vandalized Birla School on Wednesday and manhandled its administrator, alleging the school favours Sindhis over Marathis in junior KG admissions. After examining the school's CCTV footage, the police booked 15 people for rioting, assault and trespassing. They arrested five people - including Bhoir and MNS corporator Ulhas Bhoir - and produced them in a local court. All five were released on bail. The school management denied Bhoir's allegations of favouritism. Sources said Bhoir came to the school with scores of supporters around 11am on Wednesday and demanded to see the admissions data. They were told to wait for the arrival of the principal, who alone is authorized to access such information. But after 15 minutes, they went on the rampage. School administrator Vijay Tekawade was kicked, glass panes at the reception were shattered, pieces of furniture were wrecked, and several garden pots were smashed.Bhoir did not deny the violence. "The school's staff made us wait and did not provide us the details we sought. So, my supporters vandalized their office furniture," said the MLA from Kalyan West. Bhoir alleged he had got complaints over the last few years that "the school was neglecting Marathi students while admitting Sindhi students from Ulhasnagar after taking lakhs in donation". The school rubbished the accusation. "We have only 128 seats," said O R Chitlangia, the chairman of Birla School management. He explained that after taking into account many factors - such as the preference given to siblings of students - the remaining seats are allotted as per the lottery system laid down in CBSE norms."So transparent is our lottery system that we keep the participants' fingerprints. Under this system, 70% admissions are given to aspirants from Kalyan, 20% to Ulhasnagar, and 10% to aspirants from other neighbouring areas," Chitlangia said. Political observers say the attack indicates that MNS may reuse language politics in the coming assembly polls and to recover from its debacle in the Lok Sabha election. But school sources alleged the violence was triggered following the denial of admission to the son of a party leader's supporter.

2014-05-19Ulhasnagar woman's murder: Police back to square o
ULHASNAGAR WOMAN’S MURDER: POLICE BACK TO SQUARE ONE By Divyesh Singh, Mumbai Mirror | Updated: May 19, 2014, 11.21 AM IST A security guard and a builder who were suspected of involvement in the murder of an Ulhasnagar woman have been questioned and released by the police as their statments yielded no incriminating information. It has been more than a week since 48-year-old Nimi Panjwani was brutally murdered at her residence in Ulhasnagar, but the accused still roams free and cops have been unable to crack the case. Panjwani was killed at her residence on May 10 in the Rahul Palace building at Camp 4 of Ulhasnagar when her husband and son were at their wholesale shop in the APMC market at Vashi. The murder only came to light when her husband Harilal and son Sagar returned home in the evening at around 9.30pm. As the deceased didn't open the door after several knocks, Harilal got a duplicate key maker to open the door. They found Nimi lying in a pool of blood in the hall with her throat slit. The murder took place inside the flat at the same time when there were several people attending a pre-wedding function in the next-door flat. There had been no forced entry. Also, there were no marks of a struggle, which made it clear that the killer was known to the deceased and had gained entry with her permission. The only thing missing in the flat were two bangles and a gold chain that Nimi was wearing. However, the accused had not tried to take anything despite there being a large amount of jewellery and cash in the flat. No entry register was maintained by the security guard at the gate and the there was no CCTV camera in the society. The statements of neighbours and family members were recorded in detail, Cops suspected a former security guard of the building and a local builder. The former security guard had been sacked from his job as he got into a heated argument with Nimi 6 months earlier. The builder was at loggerheads with the Panjwanis as he had allegedly tried to grab a plot owned by them. "Both suspects were grilled for hours but nothing came of their statements. Both said they were elsewhere when Nimi Panjwani was murdered. Also, none of the people present in the society saw them enter or leave. So they were not arrested and allowed to go after questioning," said an officer from the Vitthalwadi police station. He added, "The video footage recorded by the family where the pre-wedding function was going on also did not help as there were no recordings made outside their flat." Three police teams and a Thane crime branch team are working on the case. Two teams are chasing some clues outside the city. "Primarily, it looks like the lady was murdered due to a property-related issue and our officers will crack the case soon," said DCP Vasant Jadhav, Zone IV, Thane police.

On Tuesday evening, Surekha did not visit her parents as per her habit, which made her father suspect that something might be amiss. He went to her residence on Wednesday morning and when repeated knocking elicited no response, he peeped in through an open window, after which he saw Sachin hanging by a rope from a beam in the ceiling, while Surekha was lying on the floor lifeless,” said Senior Police Inspector V C Dolas, Vitthalwadi police station.

The tribunal gave three months to the municipal corporation to clean up its act, failing which "it would be constrained to direct the secretary, urban development department to exercise powers under the Maharashtra Municipal Corporation Act to control the corporation and deal with the problems of pollution in the area". NGO Vanshakti had filed an appeal before the NGT to restore the Ulhas river, which was seeing discharge of untreated effluents from MIDC industrial estates, seriously affecting the health of people in Ambernath, Badlapur, Ulhasnagar, Kalyan-Dombivli and elsewhere. The NGT observed that information provided by the Maharashtra Pollution Control Board showed there was no sewage treatment plant (STP) provided by the Badlapur Municipal Council. The NGT order read: "It also appears that Ulhasnagar Municipal Corporation, has provided STP of very low capacity, which does not take care of sewage generated...." The tribunal said in view of the submission by the MIDC that the process of laying pipelines in the sea-bed to discharge effluents would take time, it directed the UMC to divert Khemni nala to avoid discharge of sewage and effluent in the river or water bodies.
2014-05-12Ulhasnagar murder: Sacked guard, local builder eme
ULHASNAGAR MURDER: SACKED GUARD, LOCAL BUILDER EMERGE KEY SUSPECTS By Divyesh Singh, Mumbai Mirror | Updated: May 13, 2014, 03.01 AM IST A former security guard and a local builder have emerged as the prime suspects in the murder of a housewife in her fifth floor apartment at Rahul Palace, Ulhasnagar, on Saturday night. The crime had taken place even as neighbours were celebrating an upcoming family wedding. Ateam of the Thane Crime Branch also picked up some people for questioning, but no breakthrough was achieved till Monday night. Nimi Panjwani, 48, the wife of a dry fruit wholesaler, had been found with her throat slit after her husband Harilal and son Sagar returned from their shop at APMC Market around 9.30 pm. She had been alone when the unidentified assailant entered the flat, attacked her with a sharp weapon and fled. Police are looking for the security guard who worked at Rahul Palace, and who has been named by the family as a suspect. The guard, whose name has been withheld, had been sacked after he got into a heated argument with the deceased. The second person the family suspects is a local builder who has allegedly tried to capture a plot owned by the family in a prime location of Ulhasnagar. According to Harilal, the dispute between his family and the builder (who has not been named) has been going on for long, and he also claimed that the builder had threatened them over the property. The police are also questioning neighbours of the deceased, and shopkeepers located outside Rahul Palace. "As the present security guard does not maintain any log of visitors, it is difficult to ascertain who all came there and when. He cannot give us any clear details of any suspects," said a senior police officer of Vitthalwadi Police Station. "Also, as there was a prewedding function going on in the neighbouring flat belonging to the Shamnani family, there were several visitors in the premises." The officer added, "Meanwhile, we are going by evidence at the crime scene, which shows there was no forced entry into the flat and no struggle inside, which implies the killer was known to the deceased. We have also sought call detail records of the deceased to find out if she spoke to anyone before being killed." This apart, the police are also going through video recordings of the Shamnani family function, to check for any clues. A large amount of cash and gold jewellery remained untouched in the flat, and the accused didn't even try to open the cupboard in the bedroom. "Nothing in the bedroom was disturbed, so it could be that that accused didn't even go inside, but killed the woman in the hall and left with the weapon," the officer added.

The incident took place when the victim had gone to a shop near her house to buy a cold drink. According to the police, when the victim reached the shop, her friends, who were loitering nearby, greeted her and called her to them on the pretext of wanting to discuss something. They then allegedly took her to an isolated spot and raped her.

The three accused allegedly took turns to rape her and later threatened her of dire consequences if she revealed what had happened to anyone. They left her there and, at the same time, the victim's family members started looking for her as more than an hour had passed since she had left home. The victim returned home and told her parents what had happened. Her family members then lodged a police complaint. As the accused were known to the victim, she gave all their details to the police.

The police have often issued notices to residents and held many meetings urging them to step up security by posting watchmen and installing CCTVs but have failed to convince the housing societies. The Thane police have now decided to take the help of local representatives to spread the message about safety measures. Police sources said all four murders have been reported in standalone buildings, as opposed to gated compounds, but in most buildings no security guards were posted and no CCTV cameras were installed. In the latest case, the guard posted at Rohan Palace did not maintain a record of visitors and the building did not have CCTV cameras on the premises, which could have helped the police. Two LPG cylinder delivery men entered the house of a cloth merchant, killed Poonam Gurmani, and escaped with gold ornaments on March 16. Here too there was no CCTV camera or security guard. But the police, noticing the sealed cylinder at home, questioned delivery men, which led to the arrest of the accused. In January, 55-year-old Meena Lassi was killed in her flat in Ulhasnagar when her son was at work. The police are yet to solve the case as the security guard posted at the building had not maintained a record of visitors. Thane police deputy commissioner of police (zone IV) Vasant Jadhav said, "We will take the help of local representatives and will organise meetings with housing societies so that people can understand the importance of safety measures."

2014-05-01Ulhasnagar teacher death: EC probe team visits kin
Ulhasnagar teacher death: EC probe team visits kin, to question erring polling officials Written by Dipti Singh | Mumbai | Published:May 1, 2014 2:09 am Jyoti Savle (16), daughter of Anant Savle, a teacher at an aided school in Ulhasnagar, who collapsed during poll duty and died, on Wednesday told the election commission’s probe team that the election officer at Takshasheela School, Ulhasnagar, asked her to fill in for her father even though she informed them that she was a class IX student. Jyoti was allegedly forced to report for poll duty on April 24 after her father fell ill. The probe team headed by Santosh Deherkar, deputy municipal commissioner of Ulhasnagar Municipal Corporation, visited the family on Wednesday to record their statement. On April 23, Savle (45), an assistant teacher at Takshasheela School, suffered a heat stroke while distributing slips to voters and had to be rushed to a hospital. On April 24, his daughter Jyoti went to inform the election officer at Takshasheela School about his illness. However, the girl was allegedly asked to fill in for her father and was made to distribute the remaining slips to voters. “Even when my father was hospitalised, he feared legal action being taken against him as the election officials had threatened to register an FIR against him if he failed to report to election duty. Hence, my mother and I went to inform the officials about my father’s health and request them for exemption. Sanjay Gaikwad, an officer, told me that if my father could not report to duty then I will have to work in his place and explained the work to me. I was told to distribute slips to voters. Only when I returned home I learnt about my father’s death,” said Jyoti. The minor was reportedly paid Rs 400 as remuneration for the work on the name of her father, while Savle was admitted to JJ Hospital. The family left for Dhule for the last rites. The incident came to light when the family returned to the city on April 26 and demanded for action against the officer. District collector P Belasaru ordered an inquiry into the matter on April 28. “The investigation is on. The family has named Sanjay Gaikwad. We will soon question Gaikwad and other polling officials,” Deherkar said.
