Three Suresh Pujari gang members held in Ulhasnagar
NAVEETA SINGH | Sat, 24 Sep 2016-06:45am , DNA
In a major jolt to the Suresh Pujari gang, Thane's anti-extortion cell arrested three gang members in connection with July's firing incident in Ulhasnagar. Two motorbike-borne assailants, allegedly associated with underworld gangster Suresh Pujari, opened fire at city builder Sumit Chakraborty's office.
The accused have been identified by police as Yash alias Ramesh Bhimrao Patil (40), a resident of Ulhasnagar and Pujari's main informer (who was arrested on September 21), Vijayprakash Sundar Pujari (43) from Ulhasnagar and Dayanand Narayan Amin alias Pujari (63), who was arrested from Mira road on September 22 respectively.
"During the investigation, we were informed that the gang would identify businessmen who they could extort money from and relay the information to Pujari. The gangster would then call the targets and demand money from them," said an anti-extortion cell official.
Police also found two pistols and five live rounds. Patil will be in police custody till September 29.
Police were also given information about Pujari's other gang members. "We have been informed that Pujari funds his gang to buy arms and meet expenses through hawala and angadias. We also have a list of businessmen who fund Pujari's activities. We expect to make more arrests soon," said the official.
Police said the accused have been keeping Pujari updated about Chakraborty's whereabouts. Sumit, who is president of Ulhasnagar Trade Association, was not in his office when the incident occurred in July. However, the shooters fired two rounds on his associate Deepak Rajani, who escaped unhurt. It is believed that Sumit, his brother Sujeet and Sumit's son Aakash were receiving extortion calls from Suresh Pujari seeking Rs 2 crore.
When Chakraborty refused to fulfill his demand, two of Pujari's men entered his office on July 11. They asked Chakraborty's associate Deepak Rajani about his whereabouts. When Rajani said his boss was not around, the gang opened fire on him. Rajani escaped unhurt and lodged a case with Ulhasnagar police station.
Over the past few years, Pujari has become quite active in Dombivli, Thane, Ulhasnagar and Badlapur.

Thane Crime: Man bought minor for Rs 10,000, pimped her for Rs 18,000 daily
By Faisal Tandel
The four arrested accused in police custody
The Anti-Human Trafficking Cell (AHTC) of the Thane Crime Branch recently rescued a Bengal girl forced into prostitution in Maharashtra. While the victim has claimed to be 20 years old, officers suspect she is a minor and will do an ossification test on her to ascertain her exact age.
The Cell has arrested four people, including the pimp from Bengal who brought her to Ulhasnagar on the pretext of giving her a job in a well-known firm. The pimp sold her for Rs 10,000 to a couple in Ulhasnagar, where she was kept for three months. The couple later sold her to a woman in Yavatmal district.
The arrested accused are Farid Gazi (23), the pimp from Bengal, Jaydev alias Ajay Naskar (30) and his wife Najma (23), the couple, and Durga alias Saloni Raut (30) based from Pusad, Yavatmal district.
The trigger: On September 16, based on information from sources, Cell officers raided Siddhivinayak building in Maneregaon, Ulhasnagar 4, and nabbed two women who were Bangladeshis. Both of them reside in Naskar's house without proper documentation. Ajay too didn’t inform the local and Thane police about two foreigners staying at his place. Hence, we picked him up and interrogated him. Accordingly, a case was filed against the three at Vitthalwadi police station under sections of the passport Act, 1950, and foreigners Act, 1971, said Ravindra Daunkar, Senior Inspector, AHTC.
Ajay's sustained interrogation about the two women at his home is what lead to the revelation that he had bought a girl from West Bengal from a pimp.
Chain of events: During the interrogation, he confessed that three months ago, he had bought a girl from Gazi, said Daunkar. Ajay revealed that he and Najma kept the girl in their house for three months and forced her into prostitution. He said that they took her all over, depending on the customers locations, including Nashik and Karnataka. They would charge Rs 3,000 per customer and arrange it in a lodge in whichever city they were. Not a single penny was given to the girl as her daily expenses were taken care of by the couple, added Daunkar.
Officers then asked him about the whereabouts of the girl, to which he said he'd sold her on September 15 to a woman in Pusad. According to the information, we raided Raut's residence on September 17, and found the girl in the bedroom. Raut is infamous in Yavatmal and was the target of the local police. Her residence is called White House. After the police had come to know the name, she had got it painted black, said Daunkar.
The seizures: A case has been registered at Vitthalwadi police station under sections 370 (buying or disposing of any person as a slave) and 34 (common intention) of the Indian Penal Code and under relevant sections of The Immoral (Traffic) Prevention Act.
The police have seized cash and mobile phones worth Rs 40,000 as well as a few documents. All four are in police custody. We are questioning them on the number of girls they pushed into flesh trade, said Parag Manare, Deputy Commissioner of Police, Thane Crime Branch.
Six customers a day: Jaydev alias Ajay Naskar allegedly sold the girl to Yavatmal's Durga alias Saloni Raut on a deal that she would ensure at least six customers a day were sent to the girl and Rs 3,000 per customer per day was given to them. When officers checked Raut's diary, they found that on September 15 night, a customer was given the girl for the entire night and charged Rs 7,000, while on September 16 night, two customers were sent to her and charged Rs 1,000 each.
Rs 40k The amount police have seized from the arrested accused

If family members to belive since November 2013, Pappu is in jail, since than his family three times had applied for furlough but jail authority refused for it including the time last time when Pappu's real sister Asha Bajaj was died. Talking to TOI, Omie Kalani said, "Since three years jail authority three times has refused parole to my father which is rights of convict but since my mother's condition is not good we hope that this time jail authority will give him parole or furlough as per rules".

A prisoner is entitled to be released on furlough for 14 days in a year. However, he may seek a 14-day extension by citing reasons for it. While furlough is a prisoner's right, the prison authorities grant parole to a prisoner based completely on their discretion. It is usually granted in cases of an emergency like a death in the prisoner's family or illness of a family member.

Thane, Sep 8 (PTI) The Thane District Consumer Redressal Forum has ordered a doctor running a hospital at Sahad here to pay a compensation of Rs 4 lakh to a patient for a botched surgery which left him disabled for life.
Forum President Sneha Mhatre and members Madhuri Vishwarupe and ND Kadam also directed Dr Shree Vivek Malvi to pay an additional Rs 5,000 to complainant Digambar Vittal Rathod towards legal expenses. According to the complainant, a resident of Ambivili in
Kalyan, he met with a accident on July 31, 2013 near the Vittalwadi Railway Station injuring his right leg. He then went to the Central Hospital at Ulhasnagar where one person referred him to Dr Malvi stating that he was a good surgeon. He went to Malvi's Mathoshri Kesarben Mohanlal Dedai Hospital where the doctor operated him following which he was discharged on August 13, Rathod told the Forum. Thereafter he began suffering pain in his right leg which continued for long. When informed, the doctor put him on painkillers. The complainant further stated that as the pain continued he went for a second opinion and was told that the operation carried out on his right has not been successful. Rathod was advised removal of the screw in his leg and go for an implant once again which would cost him around Rs 2.5-3 lakh. He then brought this to the notice of the
respondent (doctor) who simply gave him a disability (partial)
certificate and asked him to continue with medicines. As a result of the failed operation, Rathod told the Forum that he has been suffering excruciating pain as a result of which he cannot get up and move around. Moreover, due to his condition, he also lost his job and claimed a compensation of Rs 4 lakh from the doctor. The complainant who worked as a Area Sales Manager with Swastik Tiles said that he was earning a salary of Rs 27,500 per month. The Forum said that it had sent a notice to the respondent which was returned unclaimed after which it decided to conduct the case ex-parte against the respondent. The doctor opposed this decision but Forum went ahead
with the case. The order said that by carrying out a faulty operation
and by not getting the same rectified by another operation as suggested by the experts, besides asking the complainant to
continue with the medicine amounts to deficiency in services. Also, by only giving the patient a disability certificate the respondent had shirked his responsibility, the Forum noted.

Representational Image. Picture Courtesy : Manoj ChaudhariThe lackadaisical attitude of the civic body towards repairing of potholes resulted in the death of a 45-year-old woman in Ulhasnagar on Tuesday.
The deceased, Ramrati Gupta, was riding pillion with her son and enroute to her bakery in Shanti Nagar area when the incident occurred. When they reached the stretch of road near Neelam Hotel on the Kalyan-Badlapur road, her son Devendra lost control of the two-wheeler after it went over a pothole.
While Devendra fell on the left side, his mother fell on the right side and was crushed to death by a speeding truck. The driver, Vinod Yadav, was quickly apprehended by the locals following the accident and handed over to the cops.
According to an official with Central police station, â€œThe accident happened because of the pothole. However, the trucker was also driving rashly and failed to apply the brakes on time, which led to Ramratiâ€™s demise.â€
Yadav has been booked for rash and negligent driving by Central police station.
Incidentally, another motorist fell of his bike on the same road on Tuesday. But he was lucky as the car behind him managed to stop in time.
Yuvraj Bhadane, Public Relation Officer of Ulhasnagar Municipal Corporation, told a leading daily that the road comes under MMRDA but is maintained by the civic body. He has assured that a probe will be conducted to find out the person responsible and strict action will be taken against them.
The Kalyan-Badlapur road has been littered with potholes even before the onset of monsoon. Locals have reportedly complained to the civic body multiple times, but no avail.
â€œI witness 1-2 accidents everyday because of the bad roads. Most times it is the bikers who bear the brunt and take a fall since itâ€™s difficult to control the bike after it goes over the potholes. Fortunately, the potholes also mean that vehicles cannot travel quickly which helps avoid major accidents and deaths. Bikers just get up, blame the civic body and get on their way,â€ said Prakash More a local paan shop vendor.

"After he lost control due to the pothole, Devendra fell on the left side while his mother fell on the right side and came below a speeding truck which was passing by," said Deepak Bhoee, sub-inspector, Central police station.
Ramrati and her husband ran an eatery near Shanti Nagar area in Ulhasnagar. On Tuesday morning, she was on her way to the eatery with her son, when the incident occured near Neelam Hotel. Locals nabbed the truck driver, Vinod Yadav, 37, and handed him over to the police. He has been booked for rash and negligent driving. Bhoee said, "The incident took place due to the pothole, but the truck driver too is responsible as he did not apply the emergency brake due to which she died." A few hours after the incident, another biker fell into the pothole but survived as a car behind him applied the brakes in time.

IWT to be a boon for city traffic
By Karishma Ravindran
Sep 04, 2016 05:55 am
Mumbai : The Inland Water Transport (IWT) scheme across the Thane creek is likely decongest the traffic on city roads by 20 percent, which would mean less congestion and less air pollution.
A trip generation survey conducted by Thane Municipal Corporation (TMC) revealed that IWT is expected to divert 20 percent of present road traffic on the places like Vasai-Virar, Mira-Bhayandar, Kalyan-Dombivli, Bhiwandi-Nizampur, Navi Mumbai and Ulhasnagar towards waterways transport.
The water transport at Thane creek which will come in near future would also have a potential to serve more than 2 lakh trips during peak hour from the existing road infrastructure.
The rapid growth in Mumbai Metropolitan Region (MMR) is likely to induce pressure on the existing infrastructure resources in coming years. A TMC official said, Based on the feasibility study on population, traffic and employment projection, the population is expected to rise to 34 million in 2031 from 22 million in 2011.â€
Similarly, the employment is set to increase two times and the vehicular population by four times which would also increase pressure on the road infrastructure.
With the presence of 35 creeks and rivers in Maharashtra, spread across a 720-km long coastline, the state government recognized the importance of Inland Water Transport (IWT).
Few years back, a Delhi-based consultant was appointed by TMC conducted a traffic simulation study for Thane city by videographing the traffic movements at 300 junctions across Thane city.
The study revealed excessive pressure on the present road infrastructure in Thane city. Due to this, a need for bringing an alternate transport arrangement was discussed with the higher authorities and thereby a plan was proposed for water transport at Thane creek, said a TMC official on request for anonymity.
The water transport at Thane creek would bring a huge difference on the maintenance of roads also. With people using the water transport, there will be no need of using wearing course which is usually placed on the roads, added a TMC official.
The other benefit of water transport is the reduction in fuel consumption. Based on the study, the fuel would be saved by up to 33 percent per trip. Similarly, each trip would reduce the pollution by 42 percent, said a TMC official.
Under the conceptual plan, the potential terminal location of origins and destinations for the waterway transport at Thane creek are, Kalyan-Bhiwandi, Thane-Gateway of India, Thane-Navi Mumbai, Trombay-Kharghar and Juna Sheva-Gateway of India.
The TMC is currently preparing the Detailed Project Report (DPR) for the water transport at Thane creek and November 30 is the submission date for the same given by the Maharashtra Maritime Board (MMB).

State civic bodies to unite for water transport project
By Karishma Ravindran
Sep 03, 2016 12:43 pm
Mumbai: The Inland Water Transport (IWT) scheme using the Thane creek is moving forward with six municipal corporations likely to form a consortium soon to set up jetties for the project which will come in the near future. The six municipal corporations would enter into an agreement with the Maharashtra Maritime Board (MMB).
The consortium would ensure smooth flow of contract works and inter-city transport services.
The six municipal corporations which would come together for setting up the internal water transport include Kalyan-Dombivali, Navi Mumbai, Vasai-Virar, Mira-Bhayandar, Bhiwandi-Nizampur and Ulhasnagar.
A proposal would be submitted by maritime board to the government for obtaining financial assistance for the IWT project, seeking 50 percent funding by either central or state governments. The remaining 50 percent would be funded by respective municipal corporations for the infrastructure works in their area,â€ said an MMB official.
According to TMC officials, around eight jetties would be constructed at places like Mira-Bhayandar, Vasai-Virar, Saket (Thane), Kolshet (Thane), Godbundar (Thane), Diva, Bhiwandi and Kalyan.
Based on the location, travel pattern and movement in Mumbai Metropolitan Region, the suitable model for Thane is Ro-Ro Pax Model.
The required clearance from the river bed is sufficient for a Ro-Ro passenger ferry to manoeuvre in the creek waters. Ro-Ro pax model is a type of ferry which could accommodate upto 210 passengers and 50 passenger cars.
The Ro-Ro ships are vessels designed to carry wheeled cargo such as automobiles, trucks, rail-road cars that are driven on and off the ship which will be used in Thane and inter-connected to other areas also.
Further surveys have to be conducted to ensure that the water depth to which a ship is immersed in a given condition of load is maintained in all the seasons, added a TMC official.
The presence of dense tidal river, creek and coastal network offers viability of Inland Water Transport in Mumbai Metropolitan Region (MMR) from Thane.
With the presence of 35 creeks and rivers in Maharashtra spread across a 720-km long coastline, the state government had recognized the importance of Inland Water Transport (IWT).
An MMB official said, We are yet to submit the proposal to the government in this regards. After TMC conducted a feasibility study, the conceptual plan was submitted to the Ministry of Shipping. The TMC is currently in process of preparing a Detailed Project Report (DPR) after an in-principle approval was given by the ministry.
The total project costs for bringing about an IWT at Thane creek would be approximately 350 crores, added an MMB official.
Several stakeholders which include Thane Municipal transport, Mumbai Metropolitan Region Development Authority (MMRDA), Maharashtra Pollution Control Board (MPCB), Ministry of Road, Transport and Highways and Ministry of Environment and Forests would work together in close accordance with IWT team, added an MMB official.

Elephant Tales: Put on an advocate's robe, trek through a cave, even visit Macau at this year's quirkiest pandals
Lavina Mulchandani, Hindustan Times, Mumbai
Updated: Sep 02, 2016 20:37 IST
When you visit Ganesha this year, wear a lawyer's coat a pandal in Dahisar wants to spread awareness about the critically low number of judges at Indian courts. Or take a 20-minute walk through a deep, dark cave before greeting the elephant god in Mulund, exploring temple art inspired by pilgrimage spots in north India. For a taste of world architecture, visit pandals in Khetwadi and Ulhasnagar: the former a grand Indo-Italian palace; the latter a replica of the glitzy Lisboa Tower in Macau.
Worshippers have been visiting pandals for decades, and want to be blown away by something unique, says Ganesh Mathur, secretary of Khetwadicha Ganraj, a mandal in Girgaum. We want to offer them an experience to remember when they come in.
Aside from offering your prayers to Ganpati, take our pandal trail to marvel at the creativity that descends on the city this time of year.
The Macau experience
Ganesha will receive an exotic Asian welcome in Ulhasnagar this year, through a 69-foot bamboo structure made on the lines of Macau's Lisboa Tower. The deity will be placed in a 35-ft birdcage inside the tower complete with real and artificial birds.
The entrance of pandal has a 69-ft high bamboo structure that resembles Lisboa tower in Macau.
Birds such as the little cormorant will be brought in from Thailand, says Dilip Valecha, president of the Ulhasnagar Fan Circle (UFC) pandal at Ulhasnagar.
Artisans from Kolkata were flown in to adorn the Lisboa Tower replica with LED lights. We want the structure to be very impressive, adds Valecha.
The 23-year-old mandal is known for its unique themes. Last year, they created a giant aquarium, with real fish, recalls Ganpat Devan, 23, a banker based in the area, and a regular visitor.
With such themes, the mandal is the perfect visit for adults as well as children, he says. It is a grand visual treat with world-class experience.
Where: UFC Group Pandal, Section 27, Ulhasnagar
When: 5 am to 11 pm.
Making a case
Businessman Navnit Chudasama, 48, will open up his home to Ganesh this year, with a purpose to create awareness about the acute shortage of judges in courts across the country. Each devotee will be given an advocate's coat before entering, and the mini-pandal will be set up like the Supreme Court with cut outs of the current Supreme Court judges addressing to the idol.

Ulhasnagar: A criminal offence has been registered against three Ulhasnagar residents for demanding Rs 2 crore from a doctor allegedly to settle a legal dispute over a plot of land. The offence was registered after the chief minister instructed the police to do so. The case is being investigated by the economic offences wing.
The complaint was lodged by Dr Gul Bhatia against Manohar Chablani, Anil Kasturi and PS Batra. Dr Bhatia, who is developing the plot, has alleged that Chablani had initially approached a lower court, claiming that the plot of land that Dr Bhatia was developing belonged to him (Chablani). Chablani claimed that Dr Bhatia had forged documents to show that the plot belonged to him. Dr Bhatia has said that he has the necessary permissions from Ulhasnagar Municipal Corporation.
The doctor claimed that the lower court had dismissed the case, after which Chablani decided to pursue the matter in the Bombay high court.
Dr Bhatia's complaint adds that when he asked Chablani the reason for the harassment, Chablani allegedly demanded that Dr Bhatia pay him Rs 2 crore to "settle the matter" such that he would not pursue the case in the high court.
The doctor claimed that since he did not get much of a response from the police, he approached the chief minister.
Dr Bhatia also stated that Chablani has filed court cases against several people a tactic to harass and make money.
Senior inspector S M Dhaval said they having recovered documents pertaining to the matter.
