Man arrested for killing colleague's 11-year-old son Jul 27, 2018, 05:35 IST UlHASNAGAR: Police have on Thursday solved the murder case of Harsh Alhat (11), who was found dead with his throat slit at a family friend’s room in a chawl in Ulhasnagar in July. A 22-year-old labourer, who has been picked up in connection with the killing, worked at a denim-stiching unit with Harsh’s father, Ganesh. “The accused, Aslam Ansari, decided to kill Harsh as the boy had seen him in a compromising position with a woman who resides in the area. Ansari feared that Harsh would spill the beans on his relationship,” said a police officer. Ansari, who had fled after the killing, was arrested near the Nepal border recently. On Thursday, the accused was produced in the Ulhasnagar court that remanded him in police custody till July 30. The incident came to light on July 16 when Harsh was found with his throat slit. The room in which Harsh’s body was found was shared by 16 people. Ansari and 15 others were grilled by the cops. However, when cops went through CCTV footage of the surrounding area they found that Ansari had been trailing Harsh before the killing. “Ansari managed to flee Mumbai before we could nab him. We later activated our informants and learnt that Ansari was planning to flee the country. We tracked him to the Nepal border,” said an official. Ansari must get the maximum possible punishment, said Ganesh. “I can’t fathom why Ansari would kill his co-worker’s son. I would meet him at work everyday,” Ganesh told TOI.

2018-07-21Ulhasnagar girl ranks third in final CA exam - Times of India
Ulhasnagar girl ranks third in final CA exam Jul 21, 2018, 06:02 IST MUMBAI: A 21-year-old girl from Ulhasnagar stood third in the country in the final chartered accountancy (CA) exams, whose results were declared on Friday. Prit Shah from Surat and Abhishek Nagaraj from Bengaluru secured the first and second spot in the revised scheme of the exam. “I was expecting to get good marks, but I never thought I would bag the third rank in the country,” said Samiksha Agrawal, who scored 524 out of 800. Shah scored 542 and Nagaraj 539. On Friday morning, Samiksha got a call from the president of the Institute of Chartered Accountants of India (ICAI), congratulating her. But she thought it was a prank call and ignored it. “It was only when I received another call from the vicepresident of ICAI, did I believe it. The vice-president spoke to my mother and confirmed the news,” said Samiksha, whose father, Subhash, is an industrialist based in Ulhasnagar. She said that she could not find her results online and hence, she thought the initial call was a prank. She said her three teachers and her family were behind her achievement. She took tuitions from different teachers for each subject. Samiksha’s uncle, Mahesh Agrawal, a well-known builder in Thane district, told TOI: “I was confident that Samiksha will score good marks as she has always been good in studies. She did her CA along with her BCom, which she completed last year.” Samiksha’s mother Rinku, who took a lot of efforts to ensure her daughter studies, said, “I am proud that she has scored the third rank.” Samiksha said that she wants to build a start-up, but initially, for a few years, she would prefer to work at a CA firm. A total of 27,727 students appeared for the test and 9,104 candidates have qualified. In the Common Proficiency Test, Akshat Jain from Mumbai scored 191 in 200, probably the highest.

2018-07-19'Ulhasnagar hospital flouting medical waste norms' - Mumbai Mirror
Ulhasnagar hospital flouting medical waste norms' Jul 19, 2018, 05:29 IST Maharashtra Pollution Control Board serves show-cause notice; seeks reply in seven days; hospital feigns ignorance. The Maharashtra Pollution Control Board (MPCB) has served a show-cause notice to the state-run Central Hospital in Ulhasnagar for illegally dumping its biomedical waste in the open, posing imminent danger to health and environment. The notice also mentions that the hospital has not renewed its biomedical waste disposal license since 2014. The issue of unsafe disposal of biomedical waste by the hospital came to light when two Ulhasnagar residents, who are also members of a citizen’s collective called Ulhasnagar Citizens’ Forum, visited a patient on July 8. They found used syringes, needles and other medical waste strewn across the hospital; some of it, in fact, got stuck to their footwear. The citizens’ forum alerted the MPCB, following which officials from the board’s regional office in Kalyan inspected the site. “To corroborate the citizens’ account, our officers visited the hospital on July 10. We collected all the biomedical waste and disposed according to proper disposal regulations. A show cause notice has already been served to the hospital and we are expecting a reply later this week,” said DB Patil, MPCB regional officer in Kalyan. According to the notice sent by the MPCB, the board received the hospital’s biomedical waste authorisation application last time in May 2012; the licence expired in 2014. The hospital hasn’t sought renewal of the authorisation, the notice stated. The MPBC officials who had visited the site reported haphazard dumping of hazardous waste throughout the premises, especially near the dustbin close to the post mortem unit. They also found that the hospital did not have facilities for sewage and effluent treatment as mandated by law. At present, these are being let off into the common sewage system. The notice to the hospital stated, “It was obligatory on your part to provide adequate and suitable treatment and disposal arrangements as well as air pollution control devices”. It concluded that the hospital was wilfully and intentionally violating rules. The board has sought a reply to the showcause notice within a week, failing which appropriate legal action will be taken against the hospital. When contacted by Mumbai Mirror, civil surgeon Dr Sudhakar Shinde said he had taken charge of the hospital only recently and was not aware that the situation was this bad. “Now that I am made aware, I will make sure that necessary changes take place and the hospital practices due diligence in disposing of biomedical waste it generates,” he said.

2018-07-17Four out of 11 samples of treated water in Ambernath, Ulhasnagar found unfit for drinking, say NGOs - The Indian Express
Four out of 11 samples of treated water in Ambernath, Ulhasnagar found unfit for drinking, say NGOs Water being supplied to civic buildings also non-potable, they say Published: July 18, 2018 4:16:27 am Of eleven samples of treated water that were tested by non-governmental organisations in Ambernath earlier this month, four were found to be non-potable. All 14 samples of untreated water taken directly from dams or other sources were also found to be non-potable, according to reports released by two NGOs. Activists said water supply in Ambernath and Ulhasnagar has been polluted by industrial effluents dumped directly into the Ulhas river and its tributaries. The tests were conducted on July 6 by the Ambernath Citizens’ Forum and Nagrik Seva Mandal. “The results painted a grim picture. Four out of the 11 water samples from households were deemed to be non-potable, including water supplied to the Ulhasnagar Municipal Corporation,” said Satyajit Burman, an activist working towards access to potable water. The report showed presence of coliforms and thermotolerant coliform bacteria in water being supplied to the offices of the municipality and senior police officers in Ulhasnagar and Ambernath, along with some other private establishments. “According to the report, the water can’t be made potable just by boiling it. The water is severely contaminated,” said Burman. The Ulhasnagar Municipal Corporation, which supplies water to Ulhasnagar, and the Maharashtra Jeevan Pradikharan, which supplies water to Ambernath, said they would have to peruse the reports before commenting. Ulhasnagar Municipal Commissioner Ganesh Patil said: “We are just a supplier agency. We get the water from MIDC. Their plants purify the water.” Member Secretary of the Maharashtra Jeevan Pradhikaran, P Velarasu said: “There are multiple reasons why the water could have been contaminated. Several water lines are illegal and thus we have no control on the final result. We are trying to fix those.” However, Velarasu also accepted that there may be contamination at the source. “We have already asked the irrigation department, almost a month ago, to take action against polluting industries around the water bodies,” he said. The Maharashtra Pollution Control Board’s regional officer, D B Patil, however, denied there were any industries discharging waste into the water supply bodies. “It is MPCB’s job to check industrial pollution in water. I can assure you that there are no industries discharging waste into water bodies in my region,” said Patil. Residents of Ambernath and Ulhasnagar had complained earlier about contaminated water in their areas. “The problem generally escalates during the monsoon. Once, the tap-water was mud-coloured and had a terrible smell,” said Reena Kalra, a resident of Ulhasnagar, who says she uses UV-filtered and boiled water. Manas Patil, a resident of Ambernath, said there’s a metallic after-taste to the water even after boiling. “The Ulhas river has changed colour and has become a frothy nullah full of waste. How can anyone drink water from there? The industries need to stop dumping untreated waste, and only the agencies can stop it,” said activist Burman.

The Khadakpada police said a drunk Ravindra Tayade alias Bapu spotted Mahesh Khaire, 24, a dholki player and his friend, Chetan, chatting in the parking lot of Shree Laxmi Society, Gauripada, Kalyan West around 10 pm on July 8. “Tayade, who stays on the first floor of the building, took his bike to go to work. The two young men gave way to him, but he started questioning them. Even after one of the boys said he lives on a second-floor flat, he abused and assaulted them,” said an official from Khadakpada police station. In a video of the assault, Tayade is seen dragging both the men their collars to his first-floor apartment and heaping blows on their face. The police said his wife identified one of the boys and confirmed that he did indeed live on the upper floor. But the constable continued to assault the men. The video also showed the two youngsters pleading with the constable and asking him to talk to them after he sobered up. But none of the imploration worked. “We have registered a non-cognisable offence since it’s a building-related dispute,” said Balasaheb Kadam, senior inspector of Khadakpada police station. Tayade is attached with Ulhasnagar-I police station. Khaire has taken part in Republic Day parade tableaux and has performed at several other events.

After his death, Kundomal allegedly applied to Ulhasnagar corporator Govind Aidke for a change of name on his pan card,” says investigating officer API Santosh Mane, Ulhasnagar police station. Kundomal, through his representative, sought Aidke’s no objection certificate (NOC) to change his name to Babasaheb Kumar from Kundomal. “The matter was brought to the notice of the corporator by the complainant, who has already filed a case against Kundomal in Mumbai as well,” says Mane. The complainant Vijay kumar Hegde, 57, is from Borivali and had lodged a case against Kundomal in Mumbai in 2016. “In that case also, Kundomal is said to have forged the papers to show himself as a domicile resident of Maharashtra and brought properties under his forged name,” says Mane.

Ambernath residents get lessons on being secular from high court The Bombay high court recently gave Ambernath residents, who were opposing the state government's proposal for a Muslim burial ground in the vicinity of an 11th century Shiva temple, a lesson on the Indian Constitution and secular values. Updated: Jul 9, 2018, 00:33 IST MUMBAI: The Bombay high court recently gave Ambernath residents, who were opposing the state government’s proposal for a Muslim burial ground in the vicinity of an 11th century Shiva temple, a lesson on the Indian Constitution and secular values. The petitioners had raised the spectre of communal tension if the court did not halt the government notification in April to reserve the plot in Kailash Colony, located between Ambernath and Ulhasnagar, for a kabrastan. “The argument that if the court does not interfere with the reservation (of land for burial ground), communal tension will be created is to be deprecated,” said a division bench of Justice Abhay Oka and Justice Riyaz Chagla. The bench pointed out that it was concerned only with the merits of the case and the legality and validity of the decision. “India is a Secular Democratic Republic. The petitioners have to respect the ideals of the Constitution as required by Article 51-A (a). If by virtue of lawful orders of the court…communal tension is created, it is the responsibility of the government to ensure that such a situation does not arise. We must reiterate that a court of law does not get impress by such submissions,” said the bench and dismissed the petition. Article 51 - A (a) states that it is the right of every Indian citizen to abide by the Constitution and respect its ideals and institutions. Since years, Muslims in Ulhasnagar have been demanding a burial ground in the town as they have to take the deceased to a kabrastan over 5km away. In April, the state government issued a notification reserving three plots in Ulhasnagar in the development plan (DP) for kabrastans, including one at Kailash Colony. They claimed the plot is located at a distance of over 200m from an 11th century Shiva temple and a ghat where Ganpati immersions are held. They moved HC and said if the court failed to strike down the notification, there could be communal tension in the area. Unimpressed with the contention, the HC said: “It is not the case (of the petitioners) that devotees visiting the temple or the ghat are required to approach them through the plot reserved for the burial ground. The purpose of reserving the land is also a public one. It is not the case that a burial ground is not needed in the city.” The court pointed out that the preparation and sanction of the DP was an elaborate process under the Maharashtra Regional Town Planning Act, which included inviting objections and suggestions before publishing the plot reservations. So, the opportunity of being heard was granted to the petitioners, the bench said. The court said it was not the case of the petitioners that the place they were occupying was reserved for a burial ground. Even if their houses were affected by the reservation, the court said the state would have to follow due process before vacating the plot.
