Mumbai: 6-Year-Old Boy Drowns While Playing Near Faulty Bridge Jun 29, 2017, 09:34 IST While playing near Wadol bridge at Ulhasnagar on Tuesday evening, a six-year-old boy fell into Waldhuni river and got swept away by the current. The Ulhasnagar cops along with fire brigade officials fished out the body on Wednesday morning. However, the child's parents claim that the bridge, which is lying in a precarious condition, with no barricades near it, led to the accident. According to police, the boy has been identified as Ganesh Jaiswar, who was a Std I student of St. Joseph School. Civic negligence Speaking to mid-day, Ulhasnagar municipal commissioner Rajendra Nimbalkar said, "The incident didn't happen because of the bridge. The boy's parents have confirmed that he was playing with some fishing equipment, when the accident took place." However, the deceased boy's parents claim that the accident happened due to the negligence of the civic authorities and the contractor, who had been assigned the construction work of the bridge. Risky affair After the Wadol bridge collapsed last year in August, the contract for its repair was given to AR Ramchandani. But, in May this year, a consultant of the Ulhasnagar Municipal Corporation checked the work and said that the contractor was using low quality construction material. Thereafter, on June 13, the corporation gave a notice to the contractor and asked him to stop the work. The deceased's father Buwal Jaiswar said, "No barricades have been placed near the bridge and people are also not stopped from using it. School kids and others use it on a daily basis."

2017-06-21Ulhasnagar municipal boss seizes cell-phones of hawkers for a unique reason - Mid-Day
Ulhasnagar municipal boss seizes cell-phones of hawkers for a unique reason Mumbai Posted 21-Jun-2017 Dtermined to change lawless images of Ulhasnagar, municipal boss seizes cellphones of unauthorised hawkers at start of anti-encroachment drive to prevent them from alerting others Posters advising people on keeping the city clean. Pics /Navneet Barhate Rajendra Nimbalkar 1, Hawkers-0. Since June 16, the commissioner of Ulhasnagar civic body has one-upped illegal hawkers with an ingenious, yet simple, plan: seizing mobile phones of those caught in encroachment drives. Hawkers have a notoriously well-established network. So, when civic officials begin cracking down on hawkers in one locality, they immediately alert their colleagues nearby through phone calls. Nimbalkar (52) says alerted hawkers often flee to narrow lanes or planned hideouts. "When we start confiscating the goods of one hawker, he contacts another through his mobile phone, thereby sabotaging our plan. It almost takes hours to confiscate the goods of just five hawkers." To outfox the hawkers, the UMC has begun seizing cellphones at the start of anti-encroachment drives. With their warning network crippled, hawkers are unable to make a quick getaway before the arrival of the authorities. On June 16, 32 cell phones were seized. The owners got them back only six hours later. "The hawkers were warned that their phones would be kept for longer periods of they didn't mend their ways." The civic commissioner says he was prompted to come up with this out-of-the-box solution to the hawking menace due to a manpower crunch. "Usually, we need a staff of around 100, including officers and dumper trucks, for these drives. Later, we conduct a panchnama, among other procedures. So when hawkers get away, all our efforts go to waste." This isn't Nimbalkar's first attempt at reining in lawless Ulhasnagar. Since the time he assumed office last September he was briefly transferred to the Panvel Municipal Corporation during the civic election in May he has dabbled with several nifty plans. He was the brain behind the proposed campaign to send eunuchs to the residences and offices of property tax defaulters, as well as use dhol performers to name and shame tax evaders. He also lured voters to exercise their franchise in the recently-held civic election with a selfie contest and by offering them discounts on restaurant bills. The UMC has now hired around 100 women from 320 self-help groups to deliver property tax bills to residences of 1.72 lakh payees. "Earlier, we used to send the property tax bills by post. We'd spend Rs 25 lakh on the initiative. This time, women will go door-to-door to deliver the bills," says Yuvraj Badane, assessor and collector and assistant municipal commissioner, UMC. Each female staffer gets Rs 14 per delivery. "The order was passed on June 15," Badane. Babu Moshai, pick up your litter Nimbalkar is also doing his bit for the Swachh Bharat Abhiyan. Posters with riffs of catchy Hindi film dialogues and tropes from the '80s and '90s will be put up across Ulhasnagar to promote cleanliness. "The Bollywood touch will help citizens connect with the campaign. We have prepared several posters, and will put them up in a few days," he said. Further, he said officials from Vengurla in Sindhudurg district will visit Ulhasnagar today and spread awareness about zero waste management.

2017-06-21'He doesn't want to go to school, other boys call him chakli chor' - The Indian Express
‘He doesn’t want to go to school, other boys call him chakli chor’ Videos of the boys being paraded naked were uploaded on social media, which has made them recognisable. Updated: June 22, 2017 4:15 am OVER A month after two minors at Ulhasnagar were stripped and paraded for allegedly stealing a snack, they have stopped going to school. “A few times, when he went out to play, boys in the area teased him by calling him ‘chakli chor’. Though school has begun since June 15, he refuses to go, fearing he will be taunted in front of the entire class or in presence of teachers,” says the 33-year old mother of the younger of the two boys, aged eight. She added that since most of the kids from the neighbourhood go to the same school, her son is apprehensive. “I tried convincing him to go to school. This week, he even woke up early, but was reluctant again,” she says. The older of the two boys, aged nine, is not going to school either, as it is in the same area where the incident took place. On May 21, the two boys from the Premnagar locality in Ulhasnagar were allegedly caught stealing chakli from a nearby shop. The boys were stripped naked allegedly by the shop owner and his sons. The accused also tonsured the boys’ heads, made them wear footwear around their necks and paraded them in the locality. At least three mobile phone cameras recorded this and within a few hours, a video of the incident was widely circulated on social media. The boys’ mothers, both single parents, were away at work and came to know of the incident when a neighbour showed them the video. The video has ensured that the boys are easily recognised in the locality. The mothers, too, have had to face problems. After the incident, both the women could not go to work for 8-10 days. They worked as domestic helps in many homes in Ulhasnagar, working for nearly 12 hours and earning Rs 5,000 per month. “I had to be around my son as he was in shock and there were many visitors. When I returned to work after 8-10 days, my employers had found replacements. For nearly a month, I have been jobless,” says the 25-year old mother of the nine-year old boy. The 33-year old, too, has lost a few jobs and her earnings have been halved, she says. The women say that though sending their children to another school away from the locality is an option, money and access are problems. “Sending him to a private school will be too expensive. I have tried to look for other schools but the process is time-consuming and I can’t take leave from my job,” says the 33-year old. The women also tried enrolling the children in state-run hostels. While the 33-year old was told that her eight-year old was too young for a hostel, the 25-year old said she visited a hostel in Kurla but was not happy with its condition. On Wednesday, she approached the Child Welfare Committee again, seeking that her son be sent to a children’s home nearby. “She has approached us. We will hear the case to decide,” said Meenal Thakore, chairperson of the Thane CWC. While many, including the Union Minister for Women and Child Development Maneka Gandhi, had assured help after the incident, the mothers say little has been done so far. When contacted, AN Tripathi, Member Secretary of the Maharashtra State Commission for Protection of Child Rights, who had visited the two minors in May, said he would not be able to comment as he was not in the city. The three accused, booked on charges including under POCSO and Atrocities Act, are in jail, said senior inspector Mohan Waghmare of Hill Line police station.

While pursuing an Engineering degree from Vivekanand Education Society, Chembur, Mr. Lokanathan was involved in activities of the college’s Social Responsibility Team (SORT). Among other things, he taught underprivileged children in Patnaupada, Yeoor Hills, Thane.But after graduation, he felt the need to do more, and was drawn towards helping children. Mr. Lokanathan teamed up with two of his friends from college, Sampada Inarkar (22) and Shantanu Tawte (23), and decided to work towards educating underprivileged children. They founded weCHANGE (acronym for Care, Help, Acknowledge, Nurture, Grow and Enlighten), in Thane in December 2014. By February, they had grown to 10 volunteers. At Majiwadagaon near Thane, they came across the Navjeevan Prathamik Vidyalaya(NPV), which taught poor children from the slums in the area. “The children studying in this school do not have access to even basic education. They are burdened with the responsibility of home and their younger siblings,” said Ms. Inarkar.The weCHANGE founders started visiting the school and decided to provide the students with interactive study material for basic English, Maths and Marathi to make lessons more interesting.“However, we soon realised that absenteeism was high, due to which the children lagged far behind,” says Mr. Lokanathan. The volunteers started visiting their homes, convincing parents to send their children regularly to school. “We felt that more than the children, the parents’ mindsets needed to change,” said Monica Jeshnani (23), convenor, weCHANGE. While the task was not easy, there was a gradual change and attendance became more regular.When learning is funThe volunteers introduced video lessons for the children of all age groups. “We had never seen a computer before and to see lessons being taught through one was an amazing experience,” said Kunal MG Rathod, a Class VI student.The founders also realised the need for value education. “As the parents of these kids leave for work early in the morning and in most cases, are unable to return by nightfall, many children tend to acquire habits like begging, rag picking and stealing,” said Harleen Arora (21), a volunteer.The volunteers hold classes within the school premises on Saturdays for four hours. They have also begun motivational, career and family-oriented counselling to students. The school administration is happy with the students’ progress. “All the volunteers are dedicated and mix well with students. Their innovative teaching methods have made learning interesting,” said Jitendra Bajaj, Principal. The volunteers’ efforts have indeed paid off, and there are success stories in the school. Kunal Rathod (11), who was studying in Class VI, for instance, was very irregular and showed no interest in learning. However, with the efforts of the volunteers, Kunal has not only started attending school regularly but completes all his assignments on time and even teaches younger students.Likewise, Yasmin (10), a Class V student, was a slow learner and had a speech disorder. There is a considerable improvement in her now, says Mr. Lokanathan. “There are many students who have shown a complete transformation with respect to values, academic orientation and extra-curricular activities.”weCHANGE is also using innovative teaching tools for the children of Narlipada village in Yeoor, Thane and Jyot Bhadushey Samajik Sanstha, Ulhasnagar, which helps meet educational needs of street children.“The kids of Narilpada village assemble at one place and we provide educational guidance on a weekly basis with various fun-filled activities. Recently, we demonstrated a science experiment with the help of a kit we had prepared,” said AiswariaVaidhyanathan (22), a volunteer from SIES College, Nerul. Other activitiesweCHANGE has grown into a team of 80 volunteers aged between 21 and 24 years. Most of them are either from colleges from across Mumbai or have just started working in multinational firms in the city. The organisation now has branches in Ghatkopar, Thane, Borivali and Ulhasnagar, and has diversified its activities.In April 2015, the volunteers raised funds for the victims of the Nepal earthquake. The Borivali team has also helped the differently-abled children of Shantidan Ashram and conducted a tree plantation drive at Gorai. They also organised ‘Umeed — A campaign against Cancer’ in January 2016 along with Medigene Homeopathic Research and Development, with a similar initiative on a larger scale in January this year. They conducted a medical camp at Rescue Foundation, Kandivali, which works for the women rescued from trafficking, and write exams for blind candidates.To make learning more joyful, the volunteers recently undertook an activity called BALA (Buildings as Learning Aid), aimed at using the walls of a school to teach various educational concepts in a pictorial way. The volunteers painted the walls of Thane Mahanagar Palika School in collaboration with Kayvalya Foundation. No hurdle is too bigWhile paucity of funds is a major challenge, it has never deterred the youngsters from conducting their activities. “There are many philanthropists who support our work but whenever we fall short of funds, some of the volunteers readily donate part of their salaries,” says Ms. Inarkar.To Mr. Lokanathan, inspiration is a continuous process. “To work for society, one does not have to go far. There is a huge disparity of resources all around us. All we have to do is give time and be dedicated,” he says.Founder : Shridhar Lokanathan, Sampada Inarkar, Shantanu TawteFunding : DonationsFounded: December 17, 2014Contact: 9004644541, 9769838922 Email & Website: wechange.ngo@gmail.com www.wechange.org.in Related Topics Mumbai school education Related Articles Recommended for you Close X This article is closed for comments.Please Email the Editor Printable version | Jan 3, 2019 10:45:54 AM | https://www.thehindu.com/news/cities/mumbai/opening-new-windows/article19077870.ece © The Hindu Next Story Impossible to inspect every building: Chief Fire Officer of Mumbai Fire Brigade Chief Fire Officer of Mumbai Fire Brigade Prabhat Rahangdale on the systemic changes in the city since the Kamala Mills fire a year ago Tanvi Deshpande Top Picks in The Hindu today Better tech would have let me play a little longer: Kapil Dev Rajya Sabha calendar chronicles changes over decades Long history of nuns abused by priests in India: an AP investigation Achrekar, Tendulkar’s guru, passes away How a taxman used his wedding photographers to find beauty in trash Frenchwoman’s ‘oldest’ record may be fraud Biggest Pink Test in the offing Barbie will soon be 60, and is still going strong Watch: In a first, two women of menstruating age enter Sabarimala temple Meet India's bicycle mayors CLOSE THIS MENU TRENDING TODAY Chennai Hyderabad Bengaluru Videos Entertainment Today's Paper ePaper News National International States Andhra Pradesh Karnataka Kerala Tamil Nadu Telangana Other States Business Agri-Business Industry Economy Markets Budget Real Estate Cities Bengaluru Chennai Coimbatore Delhi Hyderabad Kochi Kolkata Mumbai Kozhikode Madurai Mangaluru Puducherry Thiruvananthapuram Tiruchirapalli Vijayawada Visakhapatnam Elections Telangana 2018 Madhya Pradesh 2018 Rajasthan 2018 Chhattisgarh 2018 Mizoram 2018 Results Opinion Editorial Lead Comment Columns Interview Cartoon Open Page Readers' Editor Letters Sport Athletics Cricket Football Hockey Motorsport Other Sports Races Tennis Entertainment Art Dance Movies Music Reviews Theatre Society Faith History & Culture Books Reviews Authors Children Life & Style Fashion Fitness Food Motoring Travel Homes and gardens Luxury Technology Gadgets Internet Sci-Tech Science Technology Health Agriculture Environment Education Careers Colleges Schools Multimedia Photos Videos Podcast Data Specials Crossword Resources Tags thREAD Theatre - Fest November Fest Lit for Life Archive Classifieds eBooks Subscribe Social About Us CONNECT WITH US CLOSE THIS MENU Home News Opinion Business Sport Cricket Science Entertainment Life & Style thREAD THE SITE About Us Terms of Use Privacy Policy Contacts Archive Subscribe Rss Feeds GROUP SITES The Hindu இந்து தமிழ் திசை Business Line BL on Campus Sportstar Frontline The Hindu Centre RoofandFloor STEP Young World Club Publications eBooks Images Classifieds Send your feedback to: web.thehindu@thehindu.co.inCopyright© 2018, The Hindu
2017-06-15Mumbai shelter home scripts history as five rescued girls ace SSC exams - Mid-Day
Mumbai shelter home scripts history as five rescued girls ace SSC exams Jun 15, 2017, 06:00 IST Ruhi (name changed) was only in school when her parents got separated. The girl, who originally hails from a small village in Orissa, later came with her mother to Mumbai, where the two took up odd jobs to survive. One fateful day, without her mum's knowledge, her aunt forced her into prostitution on the lure of making big money. Scared of the stigma, Ruhi faced the torment alone. Things changed when the girl was rescued by the police and sent to a shelter home. Today, the 17-year-old is among five girls from the Deonar Shelter Home to have passed the Secondary School Certificate (SSC) examinations, making them the first in the city's history to clear the exam from a special home. The girls, who hail from Orissa, West Bengal and Maharashtra, were rescued by the police under the Immoral Trafficking Prevention Act and were undergoing rehabilitation at the Deonar home. Save The Children India, an NGO, which assists rehabilitation of rescued girls, decided to train them for the SSC exams after they saw potential in them. With the help of the shelter home authorities and Child Welfare Committee (CWC) these girls were taken to a unit of the NGO, where the girls studied for over a year. This is the first time in the history of Mumbai that girls from a special home have passed the SSC exam. "When they learned about their results, they felt like they were on top of the world. The girls now want to pursue careers in fashion design, travel tourism, banking and nursing," said Vaibhavi Tailor, senior programme officer, Save Our Sisters (SOS) and Save The Children India. Tailor said the biggest hurdle was procuring the documentation of these girls as they hail from different states. The NGO, with the help of other social groups, managed to get the details of their previous schools and parents to obtain their documents. "Generally, girls or women from shelter homes are allowed to give academic exams through open schools, but in order to streamline these girls with mainstream courses, we ensured that they appear from the state board. It yielded positive results," said Tailor. The average score of all the five girls, who cleared the exam, was around 45 per cent. But, NGO workers said that passing the SSC isn't an easy task because most of them dropped out of school early. Shilpa (name changed), who grew up in a slum in Malad, recalls how she was forced to drop out of school after Class V because her parents could not make ends meet. "We did not even have food to eat," she said. She was just 14 years old, when she was lured into flesh trade. "The money that I earned helped me live a decent life," she said. Shilpa was rescued by police from a hotel in Malad and sent to a government shelter home. "Preparing for the SSC board exams after dropping out of school years ago, was not a cakewalk, but I can now live a dignified life," said Shilpa, who wishes to become a nurse.

2017-06-14Robber holds up bank with toy gun, flees without cash - Times of India
Robber holds up bank with toy gun, flees without cash Updated: Jun 15, 2017, 08.53 AM IST ULHASNAGAR: An unknown youth tried to rob Central Bank of India's Ulhasnagar branch using a toy gun. The accused, wearing a helmet, entered the bank and threatened staff with the gun, asking them to hand over all the money. However, when staff said the cashier had already left with the key to the cash locker, the robber fled leaving behind his bag and the gun, which was later found to be a toy weapon.On Monday at around 6.30 pm, after the bank had closed for customers and many staffers were still inside, a youth aged between 25-30 wearing a helmet, entered the branch and threatened staff with the gun. Police said the accused first asked all staffers to move to one side and then asked them to hand over all the money in the bank. Sources said the bank manager informed him that the bank shut at 3.30 pm after which the cashier put all the cash in the locker and left with the key. The robber then locked the staff inside one room and fled, leaving behind his bag and gun. Bank staff then called the police. The youth, though seen in the bank's CCTV footage, could not be identified as his face was covered by a helmet. Police later found the weapon he left behind was a toy. Acting on senior bank manager Sanjay Jha's complaint, Ulhasnagar police registered charges against the unidentified accused. D D Palve, senior inspector of Ulhasnagar police station said, "The accused could easily enter the bank as the branch did not have any security guard." The bank has since appointed a guard.Palve said police teams were checking CCTV footage in surrounding areas to identify the youth. In the past in Ulhasnagar, a gang had burgled Mannapurram gold finance company and decamped withgold ornaments worth over Rs 9 crore. Police later arrested the gang and had recovered the stolen goods.

In July-August 2014, the HC had restrained the state from “taking any final decision“ on sanctioning additional FSI (a ratio that determines how much can be built on a plot) over the normal FSI of 1 without considering its impact on civic amenities. It was directed to obtain an impact assessment report. After Friday's order, the government issued a press release, saying cluster redevelopment had been cleared for Mumbai suburbs and Thane, and a notification would follow soon. Interestingly, it added that the maximum FSI will be 3 or rehab plus incentive FSI, unlike the 4 allowed in the island city or mentio ned in its earlier proposal.The incentive floor space index will be linked to the ready reckoner rate and building construction cost. The government seemed to be acting swiftly after the HC vacated its interim orders and disposed of a PIL by a Thane lawyer, noting that “nothing comes in the way of the government taking further course of action in respect of the proposal“. After the Bombay high court vacated its stay on the proposed cluster redevelopment in the suburbs, Thane and Navi Mumbai on Friday , CM Devendra Fadnavis indicated the government's relief by tweeting, “Good news for Thane!...Great relief for Mumbai suburban too!... Govt can speed up cluster redevelopment.“ Thane lawyer Dattatraya Daund had moved a PIL expressing concern over the drastic impact on civic amenities if the huge construction allowed by an FSI of 4 was permitted without an impact assessment study . He contended that a cluster redevelopment plan allowing an FSI of 4 had been proposed by the government for Mumbai's suburban areas, Thane, Kalyan, Mira-Bhayander, VasaiVirar, Nalasopara, Ulhasnagar, Bhiwandi-Nizampur & Ambarnath, Kulgaon-Badlapur, Palghar, Dahanu and Jawahar. All these civic bodies in these places were respondents. The state urged the high court to “recallvacate“ its two interim orders and allow it to notify the increase in FSI in Navi Mumbai (NMMC and Cidco areas), Thane and the Mumbai suburbs. It claimed that an impact assessment study has been carried out and that development after increased FSI would not adversely affect facilities. It also said “implementation of cluster redevelopment with private sector participation remains unavoidable" as many inhabitants of old and dilapidated buildings cannot undertake reconstruction on their own. The court on Friday took note that impact assessment reports are available for the three regions and they allay the petitioner's worries. At this, an advocate representing Daund said there are other corporation areas in the plan. Government pleader Abhinandan Vagyani submitted that the implementation would be only for the three regions and a notification will be issued. At this the court vacated its stay, but allowed the petitioner to challenge the notification. Download The Times of India News App for Latest City News.

Yuva Sena Supporters Blacken Devendra Fadnavis' 'Face' Jun 09, 2017, 18:19 IST Yuva Sena members in Ulhasnagar fling black ink at posters thanking the CM for his loan waiver to farmers Even as the farmer turmoil continues across the state, political leaders have been trying to milk mileage out of it, putting up huge posters thanking Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis for his Rs 30,000 crore loan waiver to poor and marginalised farmers. The BJP's ally in the state government has been trying to push the CM into announcing a blanket waiver for all farmers. On Thursday, some Yuva Sena members flung black ink on posters of Fadnavis put up in Ulhasnagar by political parties. Vice-president of Yuva Sena Bala Shrikhande and other members Nilesh Mane, Javed Shaikh, Akshay Dhotare and Sandeep Gaikwad had blackened all posters put up across the city. A Yuva Sena member said, "Farmers across the state are agitating for their rights. The issue has not yet been fully resolved, yet political leaders have jumped the gun and started taking credit and congratulating Fadnavis. The government is still waiting for Amit Shah to address the issue. He will be here on June 16, 17, and 18. The banners displayed had pictures of Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Fadnavis, former MLA from Ulhasnagar Kumar Ailani, and his wife Meena Kumar Ailani, who is the Mayor of Ulhasnagar. The banners have been put up in front of the Ulhasnagar Municipal Corporation and other parts of the city. Rajendra Chaudhari, Shakha Pramukh, Shiv Sena from Ulhasnagar, said, "The government is yet to decide what their plan is to help the farmers. But, politicians putting up such banners is like adding fuel to the already burning fire." On social media, residents and other political parties have been poking fun at the banners.

2017-06-05Ulhasnagar: Bakery owner, workers suspect colleague of stealing mobile, kill him - Mumbai Mirror
Ulhasnagar: Bakery owner, workers suspect colleague of stealing mobile, kill him Updated: Jun 5, 2017, 08.21 AM IST 24-yr-old worker strangulated over repeated mobile thefts, police suspect prolonged torture A few days after the alleged bru tal torture of two children, who were accused of stealing, Ulhasnagar has seen another similarly brutal incident. Four men allegedly tortured and murdered a bakery employee on the assumption that he stole a mobile phone. The men were trying to get a confession out of him when they strangulated him on June 2. Ulhasnagar camp I has an old bakery called Mauji - a family run business. On Friday afternoon, the owner of the bakery called the police over the death of one of the employees, sources said. According to police, the deceased, Mohammad Adil Ansari (24) lived in the premises of the bakery and his dead body was discovered on his cot when the bakery was opened. "We filed an accidental death report but continued the investigation as there was some discrepancy in the employees' statements," said an officer investigating the case. When the police enquired with the neighbours, they found that multiple people had been hearing sounds of yelling and of scuffles from the bakery premises for two days. "We ensured that the post-mortem is done fast to at least ascertain the cause of death," the officer said. He further added, "The cause of death was deemed to be strangulation, which is when we went back to the bakery to investigate." According the sources, the police arrested three men, workers at the bakery, including the son of the owner."We have arrested Shamim Ansari, Javed Ansari and the owner's son Shahbaz Ansari for allegedly committing murder and torturing the deceased. One accused, another worker, is absconding and a search for him is on," said the zonal DCP, Sunil Bharadwaj. Bharadwaj further added, "There were five to six mobile phones stolen at the bakery recently and the workers there believed that Mohammad Adil was behind it. They tied him up and beat him till he was senseless trying to force a confession out of him. When he didn't relent, they strangulated him." According to police, they are yet to ascertain if the torture took place over several days. This is the second incident where mob justice has gone wrong in the area. On May 20, two minor boys were paraded naked around their residential area and garlanded with slippers for allegedly stealing a packet of 'chakli' from a grocer in Ulhasnagar. The cops had later taken an action under POCSO act and the Indian Penal Code against the owner of the shop and his sons.

2017-06-05Mumbai’s stinking rivers - The Hindu
Mumbai’s stinking rivers UPDATED: JUNE 06, 2017 11:49 IST Few cities boast of natural diversity as rich as Mumbai's: we have the jungles of the Sanjay Gandhi National Park (SGNP), hills, rivers, creeks, mangrove forests, and the sea. It is also the world's only city with a leopard habitat in its centre, not to mention 162 species of birds and butterfly species. Part of this rich heritage: the city's four major rivers, Dahisar, Mithi, Oshiwara, and Poisar. The Dahisar and the Poisar originate from the Tulsi lake, the Oshiwara begins its journey in Goregaon, and the Mithi in the Vihar and Powai lakes. None of them reach the sea unsullied; slums, industrial areas, cow sheds all dump untreated, often toxic, waste into them. Instead of channels for excess rainwater, they are now stinking, garbage-lined, slime filled sewers. Aside from the assault on the senses, they are also reservoirs of disease: residents along their banks are no strangers to malaria, dengue and various skin and respiratory ailments. Generations of Mumbaikars don't even know them as rivers; all they see is smelly 'nullahs' that flood in the monsoon. In fact, says Gopal Jhaveri, Borivali resident and co-founder of a movement called River March, the Chitale Commission — set up to recommend remedies following the 2005 floods — and said the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation, in its development plans purposely refers to river systems as nullahs so river laws don't affect them. But, he says, "The Commission clearly says a 'nullah' is a river tributary, derived from an Urdu word, and does not mean a sewer line." "In any village or town in India, people use the river water for drinking, or enter the river for spiritual purposes," says Avinash Kubal, Director, Mahim Nature Park. "But there is no such reason in Mumbai, so we are actually disconnected from our rivers." On World Environment Day, The Hindu's photographers trace the journey of the four rivers — and a fifth in the metropolitan region, the Waldhuni in Ulhasnagar — to see just where the rot is.

Panvel civic chief gets post back months after Ulhasnagar transfer Mumbai city news: Sudhakar Shinde’s appointment comes at a time Panvel’s residents started campaigning, both online and off it, to bring him back Updated: Jun 02, 2017 01:06 IST Two-and-a-half months after Panvel’s first municipal commissioner was abruptly transferred, the state gave him his posting back. In an order issued on Tuesday, the state said Sudhakar Shinde will take charge of the of Panvel City Municipal Corporation (PCMC). Shinde’s appointment comes at a time Panvel’s residents started campaigning, both online and off it, to bring him back. There were similar pleas in nearby Ulhasnagar, whose civic chief Rajendra Nimbalkar had replaced Shinde. The state has not said where Nimbalkar will be posted. The two officers were transferred in March, ahead of the PCMC election. Sources said Shinde, an IRS officer of the 2007 batch, was transferred after just 5 ½ months in office on the instructions of the election commission, as he is the brother of Maharashtra’s water conservation minister Ram Shinde. The sources said his presence during an election could have sparked controversy. There were also allegations by the opposition that local BJP leaders asked for his transfer, as his actions affected their interests. But the leaders had vehemently denied this. In the few months Shinde was at the helm, he cleared encroachments and illegal constructions, improved the area’s cleanliness and cracked down on the violation of civic norms. Residents said his was a no-nonsense tenure and that this changed the face of the region. Shinde said, “I am here again owing to the love and efforts of the people of Panvel. It feels good to be back. I will continue my efforts to make Panvel a clean, beautiful and smart city.”

2017-06-01Partial counselling for Ulhasnagar minors - The Asian Age
Partial counselling for Ulhasnagar minors Published : Jun 2, 2017, 1:08 am IST Updated : Jun 2, 2017, 1:09 am IST Meanwhile, government officials are mum on the issue. Mumbai: Two Ulhasnagar minors - who were publicly beaten up and humiliated on May 21 for allegedly stealing toffees and snacks from a shopkeeper and his two sons – have been able to only partially avail counselling as promised to them by the state child welfare department. Following the incident, the women and child welfare department secretary, A.N. Tripathi, had assured that a counsellor would hold a 25-day session with the minors and towards this, the duo had been kept in a children’s shelter. However, the two kids, aged 10 and eight years, returned from the shelter barely a day after the beginning of counselling and though the counsellor visited their home for two days thereafter, that was the end of it. Family sources said that since the children were scared, their mother took them home with the counsellor’s permission and an assurance that he would visit their home. However, he only visited them once. Meanwhile, government officials are mum on the issue. The mother said, “We were assured that we would get hostel admission for my children in a Kurla-based school but I don’t know whether that will happen.”
