2017-01-16Thane oppn leader leaves NCP for Shiv Sena - Hindustan Times
Thane oppn leader leaves NCP for Shiv Sena mumbai Updated: Jan 17, 2017 01:20 IST Megha Pol Hindustan Times Sanjay Bhoir (left) attends a party with Shiv Sena members, including chief Uddhav Thackeray (right) on Monday. (Praful Gangurde) In a major blow to the Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) in Thane, Sanjay Bhoir — opposition leader in the Thane Municipal Corporation — his wife Usha, and his father Devram — who held the post twice in the past — joined the Shiv Sena on Monday.Nine sitting corporators, including the Bhoirs, have left the NCP in the past few weeks and joined either the Shiv Sena or the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP).The Bhoirs had a stronghold in Dhokali, Balkum, Majiwada and Kolshet. Devram had won six consecutive elections, while Sanjay had won four. Their defection has left the NCP scrambling to find new faces to represent the party in these areas.“Our family has been loyal to the NCP since the inception of the TMC. However, the party has demeaned us several times. I held the post of opposition leader only on paper, I did not have the right to make any decisions. Despite single-handedly winning seats for the party along the Ghodbunder belt, our superiors did not support us. The party’s focus is only on developing Kalwa and Mumbra, while they ignore Thane,” Sanjay Bhoir told HT.He added that the family’s aim of developing the city only seemed possible if they left the opposition and joined the party in power. However, many claimed that Devram was promised the post of mayor, as well as an assembly seat if he joined the Shiv Sena. Devram has denied these claims.“The Shiv Sena welcomed us, but did not promise us any seats. We joined the party seeking development,” Sanjay added.NCP city president Anand Paranjpe said the Bhoirs’ exit will not create a vacuum in the party. “New leadership will emerge in these areas,” he told reporters. Defectors from the NCP include Yogesh Jankar and Laxman Tikmani, who joined the Shiv Sena and corporators Pragati Araj, Manohar Dumbre and Bharat Chavan, who joined the BJP.Former Congress corporator Ravindra Patil joined the Shiv Sena on Monday.ReadBJP-Shiv Sena set to benefit as old allies Congress and NCP part waysAsk soldiers, farmers about BJP’s transparency: Shiv Sena tags TMC Sanjay Bhoir NCP Shiv Sena more from mumbai Shiv Sena, BJP begin BMC alliance talks Jan 17, 2017 01:24 IST Criminalisation of politics and the BJP Jan 17, 2017 01:14 IST Dare to dream: 5 Indian entrepreneurs who are driving social change Promotional feature Recommended for you IndiaWorldBusinessEducationAutosReal estate OpinionAnalysisColumnsEditorialsBlogsAuthors CitiesDelhiGurgaonNoidaMumbaiBhopalChandigarhDehradunIndoreJaipurKolkataLucknowPatnaRanchi SportsCricketFootballTennisOthers EntertainmentMovie reviewsBollywoodHollywoodRegional moviesWorld cinemaTVMusicTabloid LifestyleSex & relationshipHealth & fitnessFashion & trendsArt & cultureTravelBooksBrunch TechTech ReviewsGadgets PhotosVideosEpaperHT IndepthPunjab LivemintLivehindustanShineHTcampusDesimartiniHTsyndication Follow us on: Newsletter Register with Hindustan Times to get best news and articles Copyright © HT Media Limited All rights reserved.

2017-01-16Autorickshaw driver plants 350 saplings at Thane, convinces 40 other drivers to join him - Hindustan Times
Autorickshaw driver plants 350 saplings at Thane, convinces 40 other drivers to join him mumbai Updated: Jan 16, 2017 09:20 IST Badri Chatterjee Hindustan Times Purushottamlal Gupta tends to saplings at Aarey Garden (Prashant Waydande/HT) Affected by rising air pollution levels around the Mumbai Metropolitan Region, a Thane-based autorickshaw driver decided to plant saplings in the area from January 2016 onwards, in a bid to increase tree cover. Within a year, Purushottamlal Gupta, 40, planted more than 350 saplings across 25 locations, with a survival rate of 80%. Gupta’s efforts were recognised by chief minister Devendra Fadnavis in September last year. He has now decided to plant more than 1,500 sapling plantations by mid-2017. Inspired by his success, 40 more autorickshaw drivers joined him, called their movement ‘Sadbhavana Hara Bhara Bharat’ and now organise plantation drives every weekend. His efforts come at a time when MMR’s green cover has been declining owing to a number of infrastructure projects, and transplantation or replantation drives have yielded poor results. “Since I drive an auto around Thane daily, I know the amount of pollution I breathe daily. Increasing the area’s green cover will disperse pollutants,” said Gupta, who hails from Allahabad in Uttar Pradesh. “Autorickshaw drivers do not earn a lot. However, instead of just spending time earning a daily wage, I wanted to do something for my planet and safeguard my children’s future.”In January last year, Gupta identified a green patch near Upvan lake, where the Thane Municipal Corporation (TMC) had planted 165 saplings. “Along with planting saplings, we also need to check their survival rate. My neighbours, the families of other autorickshaw drivers and I started an awareness rally at the lake spread over a month. We requested senior citizens and children to take care of these plants whenever they visit the area,” he said.He added that all 165 plants grew more than five feet tall.Within a few months, from May to June last year, Purushottamlal and his team planted more than 100 medina, badam and palm saplings at areas around Upvan Lake, Dharamveer Nagar and Hyde Park. “Gupta earns Rs15,000 a month, which he spends on his children’s education and on buying saplings,” said Shivkumar Gupta, an autorickshaw driver. TMC officials said they initially thought Gupta’s initiative was a publicity stunt. “We had never heard of an autorickshaw driver giving up his work to safeguard the environment. However, when we attended one of his rallies at Upvan Lake, we were surprised,” said a senior TMC official. “Children and senior citizens praised his work, and so we started supporting him.”According to the TMC’s 2011 tree census, there are 4.45 lakh trees in Thane. Over the past 23 weeks, the TMC has planted 2.10 lakh saplings, of which more than 80% have survived. Additionally, 1.7 lakh trees in Thane have been geo-tagged. After the monsoon last year, the civic body gave Gupta 20 bamboo logs, which serve as tree guards for his saplings. Last week, his team dug trenches in front of the municipal corporation and a school. “In a bid to make the younger generation aware, we have asked the school principal and teachers to help students plant saplings on their birthday,” said Purushottamlal. “Small contributions from such warriors make all the difference,” said Stalin Dayanand, director, NGO Vanashakti.READ MORETeen powers change, helps buildings, schools recycle 350 kg of batteries tags MUMBAI MUMBAI NEWS AUTORICKSHAW DRIVER PLANTS SAPLINGS GREEN HEROES PLANT TREES more from mumbai Mumbaiites make travel plans for Republic Day weekend Jan 16, 2017 09:20 IST Mumbai civic body needs to walk the talk on footpaths Jan 16, 2017 01:28 IST Dare to dream: 5 Indian entrepreneurs who are driving social change Promotional feature Recommended for you IndiaWorldBusinessEducationAutosReal estate OpinionAnalysisColumnsEditorialsBlogsAuthors CitiesDelhiGurgaonNoidaMumbaiBhopalChandigarhDehradunIndoreJaipurKolkataLucknowPatnaRanchi SportsCricketFootballTennisOthers EntertainmentMovie reviewsBollywoodHollywoodRegional moviesWorld cinemaTVMusicTabloid LifestyleSex & relationshipHealth & fitnessFashion & trendsArt & cultureTravelBooksBrunch TechTech ReviewsGadgets PhotosVideosEpaperHT IndepthPunjab LivemintLivehindustanShineHTcampusDesimartiniHTsyndication Follow us on: Newsletter Register with Hindustan Times to get best news and articles Copyright © HT Media Limited All rights reserved.

2017-01-15Thane to get its first museum - Mid-Day
Thane to get its first museum By Anju Maskeri | Posted 3 hoursNow Available on the mid-day iOS App, Download Now The plot in Kalwa will house artefacts from the district that have been lying scattered Historian Sadashiv Tetvilkar at his residence in Thane with the stone Ganpati idol from his collection which he will donate to the upcoming museum For over 10 years, historian Sadashiv Tetvilkar has been relentlessly working towards collecting artefacts connected to Thane. As a member of the KIP (Konkan Itihas Parishad), which is involved in mapping the past of the entire Konkan region (from Mumbai, Thane, Ratnagiri, and Sindhudurg up to Goa), Tetvilkar has often chanced upon objects of historical interest. The herostone which narrates a battle scene “The district has a rich history of culture and tradition that dates back to the vedic period. However, whatever we would find had to be sent to museums in Mumbai as Thane doesn’t have one,” he says. The plot in Kharegaon, Kalwa, where the museum will come up. Pics/Datta Kumbhar In a firstAll this is now set to change as Thane will finally get a museum that it can call its own. “We had been rallying for it for the past four years. But lack of political will hampered our efforts. Now, with the help of Thane’s tax collector Mahendra Kalyankar, a plot in Kalwa has been allocated for the museum,” reveals Tetvilkar, who has several books to his credit, including the Maharashtratil Veergal (Hero Stones of Maharashtra) which was published two years ago. According to sources, the plot, spread over a 1.25 acres, will either be given to the PWD for the construction of the museum or to the Thane Municipal Corporation (TMC). Historically speakingThe artefacts, he reveals, will be divided in three categories — Ancient (vedic period to 1300 AD, comprising the Shilahar and Bimba Dynasty), Middle Ages (1300-1800 AD that coincided with the Mohamedan and Portuguese rule), and Modern History (1800-1947 AD British rule till date). While the project might take over two years for completion, Tetvilkar has already started requesting people to hand over objects of historical importance that they might have housed in their homes for generations, so that they could be preserved. Interestingly, Tetvilkar has, at his Thane residence, two stone artefacts, one a Ganpati idol made of stone and the other a herostone. Both will be lodged at the museum once it’s set up. “The idol doesn’t have a full tusk. Of his four hands, one is missing and he is holding a rudraksh in the other. He’s termed the Yogi Ganesh and dates back to the Chalukya Dynasty that ruled large parts of southern and central India between the 6th and the 12th century,” he says. The herostone, on the other hand, is a rectangular slab of stone, which is a narrative of valour and sacrifice, through a battle scene. The museum items will include weapons, parchments, textiles, and remnants of machinery used at mills. Expert speakDr Sonali Pednekar, head of the history department at KET’s VG Vaze College of Arts, Science & Commerce, believes that the museum is important because it will help preserve Thane’s relics that have been lying scattered. “Thane has a long history. It was a port since ancient times, and later became a bastion for the Portuguese in medieval times. So, there are plenty of remnants that we have found which need to be showcased and preserved for posterity,” she says. The move, she feels, will also promote museology as a discipline and a career option. Dr Fleur D’Souza, historian and professor at St Xavier’s College, feels that the move is a much-deserved one for Thane. “Thane has come of age as a city and a part of the metropolis. It’s such an ancient city with an urban, multicultural character. Interestingly, there’s a 1-km stretch there, in the shape of a crescent, where you will find an ancient church, a temple, a Jewish synagogue, a Jain temple, a mosque and a Parsi fire temple all in a row. The city truly deserves a place in history,” she says.

Thane: Rival groups enter into a tussle in Ulhasnagar By Santosh Wagh | Posted 2 hoursNow Available on the mid-day iOS App, Download Now Ulhasnagar corporator’s son in a scuffle over bike racing; police suspect political motives before elections Gurumeet Labana With the dates for the municipal elections out, it seems that attacks and counter-attacks have started in Ulhasnagar with accusations being hurled all over. On Friday night, the Ulhasnagar police registered a case against the son of BJP corporator for attacking three people. Meanwhile, the corporator’s son has also lodged a complaint against 15 to 20 people for attacking him. It is still not clear whether the fight was politically motivated or to do with a bike racing incident. The Ulhasnagar police have registered a case against Gurumeet Labana alias Boxer, son of BJP corporator, Meena Kaur Labana. According to the police, Saif Sayyed, a resident of Shahad Railway Gate, approached them on late Friday night, claiming that he was attacked with choppers and rods by Gurumeet and his friends, in which two of his friends suffered severe injuries. However, in his own version presented to the police, Gurumeet claimed that he too was attacked the same night near Goal Maidan by about 20 people with rods and choppers, owing to which he suffered injuries on his head and chest. The police are investigating to see if there is a political angle behind the alleged assaults. Arrests haven’t been made yet. However, both parties state that the attack took place over bike racing as Gurumeet was overtaken by the other group. A case has been registered against both parties under the Arms Act as well as section 395 for dacoity. Both parties have claimed that valuables were stolen in the attack. “We have not made any arrest as Gurumeet is admitted at the Central Hospital and two members of the rival group are in a private hospital,” said Shakel Shaikh, senior inspector of Ulhasnagar police station.

Read More THANE: The Thane Municipal Corporation (TMC) here organised a two-day disaster management workshop for housewives to handle situations before help arrives. The intentoon of the drive arranged along with an NGO on Tuesday was aimed at faster rescue and control at disaster spots. Women residing in hillocks and slums, which are mostly inaccessible or difficult to reach in case of calamities, were invited for the sesson. Few areas in the city have narrow lanes and during disaster, the rescue teams and the fire brigade vehicles face immense mobility issues. During such eventualities, if simple and primary disaster management methods are deployed, it can go a long way in saving loss of life and property. The workshop trained women on how to deal with floods, landslide, fire, gas leak or short circuits. Over 100 women participated in the workshop and the team plans to conduct similar workshops in other areas also. "Women mostly don't know the helpline number and often end up calling their family members - thereby losing crucial response time. We gave them lessons in disaster management as they are mostly at home during the day and could be the first to attend to any disaster locally," said Santosh Kadam, regional disaster management officer of TMC.

Thane Municipal Corporation plans drone vigil on hawkersThane Municipal Corporation plans drone vigil on hawkersManoj BadgeriThe Thane Municipal Corporation (TMC) is planning an aerial surveillance of stretches occupied by hawkers by using drone- installed cameras to keep a track of their movements and hideouts during raids. | TNN | Jan 15, 2017, 12.04 AM IST THANE: The Thane Municipal Corporation (TMC) is planning an aerial surveillance of stretches occupied by hawkers by using drone- installed cameras to keep a track of their movements and hideouts during raids. Several arterial stretches, including the railway station premises at Thane and Mumbra, Majiwada, Wagle Estate and Kalwa Naka witness massive traffic congestion and inconvenience to pedestrians, especially during peak hours due to hawkers who encroach upon the areas. Repeated attempts by civic officials to raid these places have proved futile as the hawkers are reportedly alerted by conniving civic staff following which they manage to vanish and hide before the team arrives. According to the plan, each of the 10 civic wards will be equipped with a drone camera that will not only survey the dense stretches but also record presence of hawkers in the area to monitor where they stock their wares during raids. The footage would be saved for a certain period of time. Accordingly, the civic teams equipped with the data will be able to conduct timely raids and also depute flying squad staff at designated spots to ensure these hawkers do not escape. The TMC plans to start a pilot project on the premises of Thane railway station. "The plan has been formulated to keep busy junctions and city stretches free of encroachments. Drone cameras will be used to keep track record movement of hawkers, their hideouts to ensure they don't escape action," said municipal commissioner Sanjeev Jaiswal.

Congress to fight Thane civic polls on development plank: Rane Congress to fight Thane civic polls on development plank: Rane The senior Congress leader said alleged corruption in the Shiv Sena-BJP ruled civic body too would be raised during electioneering. By: PTI | Thane | Published:January 14, 2017 10:11 pm Congress leader Narayan Rane. (File photo) Senior Congress leader Narayan Rane today said his party would fight the upcoming Thane Municipal Corporation (TMC) polls on development plank and expose failure of the ruling Shiv Sena-BJP in the civic body in providing facilities to people. “The party will take up the issue of development work in the election agenda and point out how the ruling party has failed to provide basic minimum facilities to the citizens,” Rane said here while talking to reporters. Watch What Else Is Making News? He said alleged corruption in the Shiv Sena-BJP ruled civic body too would be raised during electioneering. The Congress leader was in the city to attend party meeting and also to discuss about electoral alliance with NCP for Thane civic body which goes to polls on February 21. “The ruling Shiv Sena and BJP had rendered thousands homeless in the recent road widening work in the city and this will prominently figure during electioneering by the party,” said Rane. He said talks between Congress and NCP were still underway and there has been no proposal put forth by NCP for seat sharing in the civic elections. This and other matters would be discussed by leaders of both the parties in the coming days. He said “Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis had said that he will order SIT inquiry into the affairs of the civic body. He should have ordered the same instead of keeping the matter pending for reasons best known to him.” Best of ExpressBihar: At least 20 dead as overcrowded boat with 40 onboard capsizes in Ganga, rescue ops underwayEntertainmentxXx Return of Xander Cage box office collection day 1: Deepika Padukone-Vin Diesel actioner begins on high noteEntertainmentShweta Tiwari reveals her son's face and it'll brighten up your dayEntertainmentBigg Boss 10: Nitibha Kaul to get eliminated?

2017-01-13Thane: Slum dwellers hit the tracks to protest demolition drive - Mid-Day
Thane: Slum dwellers hit the tracks to protest demolition drive By Shashank Rao | Posted 4 hoursNow Available on the mid-day iOS App, Download Now Train services on six rail lines between Thane and Kalyan were blocked for over 30 minutes Representational Pic Just hours after hundreds of passengers blocked the railway tracks at Diva station to protest train delays, over 500 people residing in slums near Dombivali station, hit the tracks and blocked services on six rail lines between Thane and Kalyan. Demolition stalledThe protest that was held by slum dwellers to vent out their anger against the demolition drive planned by the Central Railway (CR) and Kalyan-Dombivali Municipal Corporation with the help of over 350 cops, affected services both towards the Chhatrapati Shivaji Terminus and Kalyan. Sources in the CR said that the protestors even kept their footwear and utensils on the tracks to protest the demolition. Speaking on condition of anonymity, a CR official mentioned, “The protest started around 12.15pm and continued till 12.45pm, during which train services had to be cancelled.” Also Read: Next time, think twice before you leap onto railway tracks in Mumbai No developmentAccording to CR officials, over 90 illegal slums in the area were the biggest hindrance in maintaining the tracks and rail infrastructure at Dombivali. “If people don’t want then we’ll not remove illegal settlements. But train services on the Thane-Kalyan stretch will further deteriorate if these slums are not removed,” said the official. Speed restrictionsMeanwhile, the authorities managed to run one special train each between Thane-CST and Kalyan-Kasara-Karjat during the protest. Expressing their anguish, some railway officials said that if such incidents continue then it would be difficult to develop the suburban rail section. They also mentioned about plans to implement certain speed restrictions on the stretch, which would eventually delay services. They further said that there were already 12-15 spots between Thane and Kalyan, where trains have to slow down. According to sources, trains run late on the main line as the three level crossings at Thakurli, Diva and Kalwa are opened nearly 40 times everyday. Whenever a level crossing is opened, it eats into 10 minutes of the train’s running time, they said. Pay the price for blocking rail servicesThe protest comes hours after senior railway officials confirmed that the CR authorities have approached the state government for permission to slap Essential Services Maintenance Act (ESMA) on those who block rail services. Punishment under the Act includes a year’s imprisonment and Rs 1,000 fine. 12-15The number of spots between Thane and Kalyan where trains have to slow down 90Total number of illegal slums in Dombivali

Thane Doc Who Filmed A Cockroach In OT Accused By Hospital Dean Of Planting The Insect "Does the dean really believe that I completed all the mandatory routine check-ups with a cockroach in my pocket?" 13/01/2017 8:39 AM IST |Updated 13 hours ago On 6 January, when Dr Sanjay Baranwal interrupted a surgery to take a photo of a cockroach in the operating theatre at the Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj Hospital in Thane, questions were raised about the hospital's hygiene levels. The Additional Municipal Commissioner for Thane, Sunil Chavan, ordered an inquiry into the incident. But according to a new report in the Mumbai Mirror, C. Maitra, the dean of the hospital, has accused Dr Baranwal of deliberately "planting" a live cockroach in the hospital to defame it. She called it a "media stunt". Additional municipal commissioner Chavan told Mirror: "I have a report from the dean. She says a cockroach ended up in the OT because of a mischief. She believes the surgeon carried the insect in his pocket and left it inside the room before contacting the media." Reacting to the charge of having staged the incident, Dr Baranwal explained that there are three levels of safety checks every doctor has to go through before entering any operating theatre. He said: "...The safety steps include putting away personal effects and wearing sterilised gowns. Does the dean really believe I completed the mandatory routine with a cockroach in my pocket?" In addition to these safety measures, the World Health Organisation has mandated that the operating theatres must be disinfected and fumigated at least once a week.

Thane's multi-cultural populace welcomes the harvest festival Freny Fernandes | TNN | Jan 14, 2017, 12.37 AM IST THANE: Even though Makar Sankranti is synonymous with the sesame seed delicacy called tilgul, the multi cultural populace of the lake city has added to the sweetness of the festivities by blending in their own Sankranti preparations and culture. With the onset of the harvest festival, jaggery and sesame seed sweets are no doubt taking maximum space in the kitchens of residents, but Bengali, Gujarati and South Indian delicacies are no less sought after.

Fifty-five-year-old Sampada Dighe, a Naupada resident celebrating her 30th Makar Sankranti in the city, said, "Ever since I came to the city I have prepared traditional sweets for every Sankranti. This year, too, I have made tilgul laddoos, til vadi and gulachi poli, which is made by stuffing rotis with jaggery and til and gram flour that has been roasted in pure ghee. We also made bhogi bhaji yesterday. This mixed vegetable dish comprises til, the core Sankranti ingredient." A Kharkar Ali resident, Ila Tanna, said that Makar Sankranti or Uttarayan are occasions when til chikki or laddoos are made. "Other than these, the traditional khichdi will be made along with undhyo, a mixed vegetable preparation.

2017-01-11Mumbai fares better than Thane, Panvel and Navi Mumbai in air pollution survey - Hindustan Times
Mumbai fares better than Thane, Panvel and Navi Mumbai in air pollution survey mumbai Updated: Jan 12, 2017 00:29 IST Snehal Fernandes Hindustan Times Within Maharashtra, Nanded topped the list for poor air quality with annual concentration of PM10 (particulate matter of size less than 10 microns) at 162 micrograms per cubic metre. (HT) Suspended particulate matter in air in most parts of the state were almost two times the safe limits in 2015, revealed an assessment of air pollution in Indian cities by not-for-profit Greenpeace India on Wednesday. Within Maharashtra, Nanded topped the list for poor air quality with annual concentration of PM10 (particulate matter of size less than 10 microns) at 162 micrograms per cubic metre (ug/m3) as against the permissible limit of 60ug/m3 under the National Ambient Air Quality Standards (NAAQS). Safe limit for PM10 emissions annually by the World Health Organisation (WHO) is 20ug/m3. Exposure to high levels of PM10 — they are solid and liquid particles, including dust and chemicals, floating in the air — leads to respiratory and cardiovascular diseases and premature death. Locations such as Panvel, Taloja, Navi Mumbai and Thane recorded higher annual PM10 levels than Mumbai that ranked number 10 at 107ug/m3. A study by the Indian Institute of Technology – Bombay last year attributed high particulate matter in Mumbai to power plant (37%), open burning (24%), commercial food sector (18%) and road transport (10%). In addition, all locations in 25 cities of Maharashtra were highly polluted between the months of October and January with PM10 levels exceeding 150ug/m3 – that’s nearly three times the safe limits. “Pollution levels in Maharahtra are relatively less than other parts of the country, but still at very dangerous levels going by NAAQS and WHO standards. Hence it’s not safe to breathe in many parts of Maharashtra,” said Sunil Dahiya, campaigner, Greenpeace India, adding that fossil fuel burning is one of the main culprits for the deteriorating air quality in India. Dahiya added that difference in pollution levels is also because some parts of Maharashtra such as Mumbai is near to coast. “With winds in different directions, mixing of pollutants in coastal areas is very high, thereby diluting the concentration of pollutants.” The report titled ‘Airpocalypse’ by Greenpeace India, assessed air quality in 168 cities across 24 states and union territories found that none of the cities complied with standards set by WHO and NAAQS. The assessment was based on online reports and Right to Information applications by the state pollution control boards. Nationwide, Delhi emerged as the most polluted city with PM10 levels at 268ug/m3 followed by Ghaziabad (258ug/m3), Allahabad (250ug/m3), Bareli (240ug/m3) in Uttar Pradesh, and Faridabad (240ug/m3) in Haryana. The Global Burden of Disease study by (WHO) has estimated that every day 3,283 Indians died due to outdoor air pollution in 2015 – that makes it approximately 11.98 lakh deaths in India in 2015. Additionally, India loses around 3% of its Gross Domestic Product due to air pollution, as per estimates by the World Bank. “Air pollution is taking a toll on public health going by rising number of respiratory problems. No government, industry or corporate is paying the health cost due to poor air,” said Dahiya. “Therefore, there is a serious need for people to start looking at air quality data, and ask the government to share the data in a more simplistic and comprehensive manner.

By: PTI | Thane | Published:January 10, 2017 4:57 pm With the arrest of three persons, Thane police Tuesday claimed to have cracked the case of a heist at the office of a private gold loan company in Ulhasnagar town here in which about 30 kg of gold was stolen. A part of the booty was also recovered from the accused, Thane Police Commissioner Param Bir Singh told reporters in Thane. He said 15 more persons were involved in the dacoity and police teams have fanned out across the country in search of them. Gold jewellery weighing around 28.686 kg, valued at nearly Rs 7.22 crore, was stolen from Manappuram Finance’s gold loan branch in Ulhasnagar township on December 26 2016. Watch what else is making news: The thieves had entered the office through a hole and used gas cutters to open the lockers where gold ornaments were kept. They had also tampered with the CCTV surveillance system of the office. The incident was reported by the company’s staff to Vitthalwadi Police Station. The crime branch of Thane Police had also started a parallel investigation in the case. Subsequently on January 4, police arrested two of the accused Kamruddin Asuddin Shaikh (28) and Manoj Nurbahadur Saud (35), police said today. Based on a tip-off, police laid a trap and Monday managed to nab the mastermind–Mustafa alias Akhtar Samsher Shaikh (44)–at Turbhe in Navi Mumbai, Singh said. Shaikh, hailing from Sahibganj district in Jharkhand, is an expert in carrying out such crimes. The gang had earlier indulged in such heists in Thane, Mumbai and other states as well, police said. Around 3 kg of gold jewellery was recovered from the three men, they said. Singh said the gang’s modus operandi was to plant a security guard at the target place and with his help, gather information and commit the offence. In this case also, they had planted a security guard some days prior to the heist. The gas cutters used for the robbery were brought from Kolkata and some other equipment was procured from Kurla, he said. The gang members drilled the walls of the company office for 5-6 days without anyone noticing and they finally committed the robbery when the office was closed over the weekend, he said. Police are trying to find out if the stolen jewellery has been sold and they would also trace the buyers. To a question, Singh said jewellery shop owners need to get their security staff verified with local police.

2017-01-10No water, Thane society residents lock up builder - Times of India
No water, Thane society residents lock up builderNo water, Thane society residents lock up builderGargi VermaFed up of water scarcity, more than a hundred residents of Dosti Vrishti building in Vartak Nagar, Thane (W), confined their builder to a room in the clubhouse for nearly five hours on Sunday. The building is a part of the sprawling Dosti Vihar housing society, constructed by Dosti Realty. | Mumbai Mirror | Jan 10, 2017, 08.35 AM ISTFed up of water scarcity, more than a hundred residents of Dosti Vrishti building in Vartak Nagar, Thane (W), confined their builder to a room in the clubhouse for nearly five hours on Sunday. The building is a part of the sprawling Dosti Vihar housing society, constructed by Dosti Realty.Rajesh Shah, one of the directors of Dosti Realty, was allowed to go only after he gave a written assurance that the problem will be sorted out within 15 days. The builder on Monday filed a police complaint after residents also forced the realty firm's sales and customer care offices on the premises to shut down, and prevented water tankers from entering the compound.Such is the water crisis in Thane that each Thaneite gets only 145 litres of water a day, which is around 45% less than what a citizen in other parts of the Mumbai Metropolitan Region gets. A few months ago, the Thane Police, fearing riots over water, sent teams to housing societies to ensure there were no fights over water ('Thane police fear massive unrest due to water scarcity', MM, April 4).The ruckus at Dosti Vihar started as early as 9.30 am on Sunday when residents thronged the firm's offices shouting slogans. They said the builders hadn't bothered responding to any of their messages and failed to address the water problem despite several pleas. Some of the residents are senior citizens who find it extremely difficult to depend on water provided by tankers.Girish Mhatre, secretary of Dosti Vrishti, said the society is worst hit by the water crisis because it is located farthest from the water supply outlet. "We were assured running water round the clock, besides other amenities by the builder. We have been facing water shortage for many years. The builder said the Thane Municipal Corporation (TMC) wasn't releasing enough water but through the Right to Information Act we found that the TMC is in fact releasing surplus water. It's because of the builder's mismanagement that we have to spend nearly Rs 2 lakh a month for water," Mhatre said.Ninety year old Rajendra Palkar, who is partially blind, and his wife Jhelum told this correspondent that life has been "painful" from the time they moved to Dosti Vrishti. The couple's children are settled abroad, and the senior citizens find it extremely difficult to run around for water. "We moved here thinking we will find a peaceful environment. Running around for water is excruciating. We can't be going through such pain at our age," Jhelum said.Nearly six hours after residents launched their protest on Sunday, Rajesh Shah and Pankaj Shah, both directors of Dosti Realty, arrived at the society. The residents took Rajesh to the clubhouse from where he wasn't allowed to leave till he signed on a paper that said the builder will ensure the problem will be solved within 15 days."These are strong-arm tactics," Rajesh said. "I tried explaining to the residents that we are in the process of finding a solution. It is the TMC that provides water, not me. The problem is, the land on which the society stands is uneven and the force at which the water is released is not enough to cover the entire society. We are trying to install a separate pipeline but I can't tell how long it will take to finish that work," he said.Officers from Vartak Nagar Police Station confirmed a complaint was filed by the builder, and said there hasn't been any arrest. The residents said they weren't worried about police complaints. "They have water to fill up swimming pools in the society, but not for us," said one of them, Suhas Dhanawade.Stay updated on the go with Times of India News App. Click here to download it for your device.RELATED From around the web Most searched Bollywood actresses on the internetCRITICSUNIONSave 2-year-old from rare form of cancer!Milaap7 movies you won’t believe Hrithik Roshan rejected!CRITICSUNIONMore from The Times of India Shah Rukh Khan sets rules for daughter Suhana's boyfriendPriyanka, Sidharth to come together for an ad filmWill exceed FY17 tax collection target: Shaktikanta Das From the WebMore From The Times of India Invest a fraction of the property value & get monthly rentsProperty ShareLittle Aadithyan needs your urgent help!Milaap11 Bollywood celebs who were slapped with criminal chargesCRITICSUNIONGrade A commercial property leased to blue-chip tenant @ 9%Property ShareGrade A commercial property leased to blue-chip tenant @ 9%Property ShareCash ban puts dent on December auto salesFarhan Akhtar rings in 43rd birthday with friends and familyTNCA turns down offer to host India-England U-19 TestsA Monster Calls: Official international teaser trailer 1Centre's top priority is to modernise railways: PM Modi CommentsCharacters Remaining: 3000OR PROCEED WITHOUT REGISTRATIONShare on FacebookShare on TwitterSIGN IN WITHFacebookGoogleEmailRefrain from posting comments that are obscene, defamatory or inflammatory, and do not indulge in personal attacks, name calling or inciting hatred against any community.

2017-01-1025gm pacemaker implanted in 1.6kg 'miracle' baby from Thane district - Hindustan Times
25gm pacemaker implanted in 1.6kg ‘miracle’ baby from Thane district mumbai Updated: Jan 11, 2017 00:59 IST Sadaguru Pandit Hindustan Times The condition, which occurs in almost 3-5% of pregnancies, compromises and restricts the child’s growth due to a reduced heart capacity. (Pic for Representation) A baby girl, weighing 1.6 kgs, recently underwent a critical heart surgery where a 25-gm pacemaker was implanted to keep her heart, the size of a walnut, beating. Paediatric cardiac surgeons called it a miracle baby. They said that the 2.5-cm pacemaker battery occupies almost one third of the baby’s abdominal region. The baby’s 40-year-old mother is a homemaker and lives in Ambernath. The woman, who requested anonymity due to personal reasons, said the baby’s heart condition was diagnosed in the second trimester. Doctors said that an echocardiogram of the mother when she was six months pregnant showed that the baby was suffering from a heart condition called as Intrauterine Growth Retardation (IGUR). The condition, which occurs in almost 3-5% of pregnancies, compromises and restricts the child’s growth due to a reduced heart capacity. Since the heart beats slower than usual, it fails to pump sufficient blood in the body of the foetus, restricting its growth. “The most important factor which contributed to the baby’s survival was the diagnosis before birth. Within four days after the baby’s was born, we operated upon it to implant the pacemaker,” said Dr Suresh Joshi, senior consultant and peadiatric cardiac surgeon from Wockhardt Hospital in Mumbai Central. Doctors said that while the usual heart capacity of a new born is about 110-140 beats a minute (bpm) the baby girl’s heart beat was only 35-40 bpm at birth. “The baby wasn’t premature but due to IGUR, it weighed only 160gm. The heart is of the size of a fist,” Dr Joshi added. During the one-and-a-half-hour surgery, the surgeons implanted the electrodes of the pacemaker to the baby’s heart and the batteries of the pacemaker were secured in the child’s abdominal wall. “The baby’s torso was about six to seven centimetre wide. The pacemaker almost occupies one third of the space — from top of the abdominal area to umbilical cord,” said Dr Joshi. Doctors confirmed that the surgery was successful and now after a week, the baby is recuperating well. Since the pacemaker’s batteries last about six years, the baby will undergo another surgery to change the batteries.

BJP looking for a strong face in Thane to steer party in 2017 pollsBJP looking for a strong face in Thane to steer party in 2017 pollsManoj Badgeri | TNN | Jan 11, 2017, 01.45 AM ISTThe BJP commands a strong traditional voter base in old Thane and in recent years has gained immense popularit... Read More THANE: At a time when the elections to the municipal corporation in Thane is closing in, the BJP is struggling to find a voter-friendly face in Thane who has a mass appeal and can shoulder the poll campaign single-handedly. The absence of strong leader who can take on the Shiv Sena and silence the growing dissent and one-upmanship in the city BJP unit here, appears to be the big worry for the party leadership who has understood to have started poaching on its political rivals. The BJP commands a strong traditional voter base in old Thane and in recent years has gained immense popularity in the upscale working class enclaves here, but turns feeble before the strong-arm tactics of its ally. "Politics in Thane has been driven more by personalities and leaders such as Anand Dighe, Eknath Shinde of the Shiv Sena, Jitendra Awhad from NCP. The then BJP MLA from Thane, MD Joshi had an appeal among the traditional Hindutva voters in the lake city and there was stalwarts like Rambhau Mhalgi and Ram Kapse from Dombivli and Kalyan who commanded respect pan Thane. However, in recent years the party has been overshadowed by the Sena and lacks a strong leader,'' a party insider said. The absence of a strong leader has resulted in drubbings for the BJP in the 2012 civic polls where the party could barely secure eight seats while the Sena bagged a lions share of 53 seats. "The BJP strategy will be directed to cut to size the Sena and it could not hesitate to rope in members from its rival camp who can assure a victory in the ward. Presently, the elections in Thane would be supervised by minister of state for food and civil supplies Ravindra Chavan and MP Kapil Patil from Bhiwandi but it is all likelihood CM Devendra Fadnavis would be the decision-maker. As of now there is not much clarity on who is leading the pre-poll activities and the party seniors are looking at a face that could help lead the elections," said a party activist. In the last few months several rival corporators including former Congress leader of house, Sanjay Ghadigaonkar, Bharat Chavan and Manohar Dumbre from the NCP among others have been inducted in the party. Sources said the BJP senior leaders are apparently in talks with two senior functionaries of their rival party pursuing them with lure of better position and stature. Politics in Thane has been driven more by leaders such as Anand Dighe, Eknath Shinde of the Shiv Sena, Jitendra Awhad from NCP.

2017-01-10Kites inspired by Bollywood, PM to rule Thane skies this Sankranti - Times of India
Kites inspired by Bollywood, PM to rule Thane skies this SankrantiKites inspired by Bollywood, PM to rule Thane skies this SankrantiFreny Fernandes | TNN | Jan 11, 2017, 01.47 AM ISTPrime Minister Narendra Modi THANE: Kai Po Che, these words will be heard from the terrace and balconies of most of housing complexes in the city as the fun-filled festival of Makar Sankranti will be celebrated on Saturday. Residents have been flocking to stores and stalls selling kites in various hues and patterns. While the usual kites adorning cartoon characters, sport stars and Bollywood actors are in, kites with pictures of Prime Minister Narendra Modi are selling like hot cakes this season. The streets of Gokhale Road and Jambli Naka have been lined with stalls selling a variety of kites to meet the huge demand. While some children came along with friends to check out kites that had pictures of their favourite cartoons and film actors, others got their parents along to get the best deal this Sankranti. "Kite flying has always been a family affair for me. As a child, our entire family would get together on our terrace in Ahmedabad and fly kites. Now also I keep the same tradition and I do the same with my daughter. However, instead of the traditional kite, we purchase kites with her favourite actress on it. We also purchased one with the prime minister's picture," said Bhaskar Mewada (42), a Thane resident. Meanwhile, 10-year-old Siddhesh Pawar rummaged through the entire stretch of kite stall at Jambli Market and finally settled on two kites which had pictures of Batman and Superman on them. "My brother and I watch cartoons together and even wear capes and pretend to be superheroes. We fly our kites and compete with our society friends every year. This year, we will be Batman and Superman," Pawar said. From tini-tiny ones to the giant size kites, shops across the city have stocked up with a variety of kites to meet the soaring demand. "Most of the stock has been brought from Gujarat, while some are from China as the former has a much more traditional feel. The Chinese variety is made out of thin fabric and they fly just as high as those made of paper,'' said Kamlesh Jain, a store owner at Jambli Market. While kites with pictures of Bollywood actors and cartoons continue to dominate, miniature plain kites have also entered the list of favourites as many are decorating their windows as well as flying these kites. The prices of kites start from Rs15 and go up to Rs 30, depending on the size and shape. They are available in packets of 60 and 100 as well. Priced at over Rs 500 are the big kites that resemble gigantic eagles and falcons. Depending on their size and look, at times they can run up to a few thousands as well, said a shopkeeper.

2017-01-10250 cement water bowls placed in Thane for strays to quench thirst - Times of India
250 cement water bowls placed in Thane for strays to quench thirst250 cement water bowls placed in Thane for strays to quench thirstShrutika Sukhi | TNN | Jan 11, 2017, 01.54 AM ISTRepresentative image THANE: A city-based non government organisation (NGO) has placed around 250 cement water bowls weighing 10kg each in the lake city and nearby areas for stray animals and birds to quench their thirst. The Plants and Animals Welfare Society (PAWS) has taken this initiative to provide water to the strays so that they don't suffer from dehydration. "There are no water bodies in the cities. Strays not only find it difficult to quench their thirst in summer, but also in winter as we have a hot and humid climate. The project started in January last year and we had stopped in May when only a few strays were acquainted with the locations where bowls were kept. Post monsoon, we placed more pots in various parts of Thane, Kalyan, Dombivli, Ulhasnagar, Badlapur etc," said Nilesh Bhanage, founder of PAWS. The water in the bowls are refilled on alternate days. The bowls are monitored by the volunteers and animal lovers. The cement water pots are also placed prior to the summer season so that the strays are aware of the locations where they are placed. It is also seen that these bowls are kept in areas where there are more strays. "A reason we have made sure to keep cement water bowls is because dogs have a habit of playing with plastic bowls and they even kick and and throw it. Also, there are chances of rag pickers taking it away. So we have made sure to keep these heavy five litre bowls. It is seen that not only stray dogs but even cats and cattle come to drink water. Birds not only come to drink water but even have bath in it," added Bhanage. The city veterinarians have also appreciated this move and claimed that it would help the animals. "As we are living in a concrete jungle there are no water bodies here. I feel this initiative is a healthy practice for providing water to the strays who find it difficult to get water especially during the summer season," said Dr Karishma Gupte, a city-based vet.

Thane police seize 760 kg psychotropic substance found in Ambernath, record statements of 8 directors of pharma firm Thane police seize 760 kg psychotropic substance found in Ambernath, record statements of 8 directors of pharma firm The police had initially found two persons with nearly 6 kg of Alplrazolam, an anti-anxiety pill, for which they did not have the necessary permissions. Alplrazolam is a scheduled drug under the Narcotics Drugs and Psychotropic Substances (NDPS) Act. Written by Mohamed Thaver | Mumbai | Published:January 11, 2017 3:52 am THE THANE police is likely to record the statements of eight directors of a pharmaceutical company, where nearly 760 kg of psychotropic substance worth Rs 19 crore was found. The raw material was hidden in a loft at the Ambernath unit of Centaur Pharmaceuticals and was off the company’s records. DCP Parag Manere said, “We will call the directors of the company to understand the functioning of the Ambernath unit.” Watch What Else is Making News The police had initially found two persons with nearly 6 kg of Alplrazolam, an anti-anxiety pill, for which they did not have the necessary permissions. Alplrazolam is a scheduled drug under the Narcotics Drugs and Psychotropic Substances (NDPS) Act. The two accused led the police to two others who turned out to be employees of the Ambernath unit. “Initially, we thought it could be a case of two employees pilfering small quantities on the side. But with a hidden loft and recovery of such a huge amount of substances, we suspect more people to be involved,” the officer said. Meanwhile, Dr Yusuf Merchant, founder of a drug rehabilitation centre, said there was a demand for the anti-anxiety pills across the city. “At one point, there was a huge demand for these pills. Even now, there is a considerable demand,” Merchant said. “It is not a drug to be snorted or used for a high. This could be a case of people wanting the pills without going through the legal route of getting a prescription. Police should check if they were being supplies to chemists who would sell them without prescription.” Best of ExpressBusinessIndia needs bold decisions, time now to clean up table: Finance Minister Arun JaitleyEntertainmentDangal box office collection day 19: Every record Aamir Khan film broke to earn Rs 350 crEntertainmentKhaidi No 150: Five reasons why you must watch Chiranjeevi's comeback after 10 yearsEntertainmentJolly LLB 2 song Bawara Mann: Akshay Kumar's favourite song is now ours too.

The surgery was soon restarted and at no point was the patient’s care compromised25% of hospital’s recent surgery patients have suffered from postoperative infections. A 45-year-old man’s leg surgery at one of Thane’s biggest super-specialty hospitals was briefly halted after doctors sighted a cockroach moving around in the operating theatre, a place where you expect the highest standards of cleanliness. Senior orthopaedic surgeon Dr Sanjay Baranwal, who was performing the procedure at Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj Hospital last Friday, recorded the crawler’s infiltration so he could finally draw the administration’s attention to the poor, and potentially dangerous, conditions in which patients are being treated. Dr Baranwal had made several complaints about the pest problem last month, but little was done to properly clean and disinfect key facilities such as operation rooms at the Kalwa hospital, which is run by the Thane Municipal Corporation. Senior doctors and staff believe this has already caused serious problems: in the past month, 25 per cent of the patients who underwent a procedure at the hospital have suffered from postoperative infections. Well-managed medical establishments take great care to ensure a surgery patient doesn’t pick up an infection in the OT. The World Health Organization has laid down protocols for surgical care, which cover disinfection and sterilisation of the equipment and the operating room. The 500-bed Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj Hospital, which is attached to Rajiv Gandhi Medical College, has four new modular OTs, which were inaugurated by Shiv Sena chief Uddhav Thackeray in 2013. Currently, only one is functional because of a staff shortage. According to the cleanliness and hygiene guidelines for hospitals, every OT should be washed and fumigated every week. Doctors and other staff Mirror spoke to at the Kalwa hospital said this was not being done. Even after Dr Baranwal sent the video, the OT was not closed for fumigation. The hospital dean, C Maitra, said scrap material lying in a passage between the OT and an intensive care unit may have attracted pests and it would be cleared soon. But she refused to comment on the presence of a cockroach in the surgery room and disconnected the call. Despite several messages, she did not respond. A resident doctor in the orthopaedic department had first spotted a cockroach in the room 15 days ago. He removed and killed it before complaining to hospital authorities. On January 6, Dr Baranwal was operating on a 45-year-old man with a fractured right leg when he noticed another cockroach on the floor. He briefly stopped the procedure and made a video out of frustration while the medical staff assisting him attended to the patient. The surgery was soon restarted and at no point was the patient’s care compromised. He later shared the video with the dean. “I have already submitted the video to the hospital authorities; I can’t comment further,” Dr Baranwal said on Monday. Another senior doctor said many patients had developed postoperative infections at the hospital in the past month. “Ideally, in a super-speciality hospital, there is an infection control committee that ensures high cleanliness standards. It regularly takes swabs from ICUs and wards. But here, nothing of this sort has been done for a long time,” the doctor said.You Might Also LikeRecommended By Colombia From around the webMore from Mumbai MirrorRecommended By Colombia

Thane police bust factory making drug illegallyBy Gargi VermaGargi Verma, Mumbai Mirror | Jan 9, 2017, 08.08 AM ISTPrint this articleReduce font sizeIncrease font sizeMy Saved articlesWhatsappFacebookGoogle PlusTwitterEmailLinkedinSMSShareWhatsappFacebookGoogle PlusTwitterEmailLinkedinSMSThe crime branch cops raided the factory in Ambernath on SaturdayThane cops seize 10kg of Xanax after arresting two suspected drug dealersThe anti-narcotics cell of the Thane crime branch on Friday busted a factory in Ambernath where alprazolam, an anti-anxiety drug available under the trade name Xanax, was being manufactured illegally. The bust, which came after the arrest of two suspected drug pushers, led to the seizure of 10kg of the prescription drug, which was being peddled as a hallucinatory narcotic for "recreational" purposes apart from as a "fix" for addicts, said the police.On Friday, the anti-narcotics police were tipped off that the two men, who have been identified as Amit Godbole (32) and Lavkush Gupta (26), would be making a deal near Thane station later that night to sell a 'white powder' valued at Rs 2,50,000 for a kg.Acting on the information, cops arrested the two men, and found that they had 6kg of alprazolam in their possession.Their interrogation revealed that the drug was being produced locally. It didn't take the sleuths more than a few hours to uncover the production plant - the Ambernath factory, which was raided on Saturday, leading to the recovery of another 4kg of the drug.Also seized in the raid were several ingredients for the chemical cocktail and other paraphernalia for manufacturing it, sources claimed.Godbole and Gupta were working as distributors of the drug, sources privy to the investigation said.Alprazolam, proven to be a potent psychoactive stimulant, is dangerous if consumed in large quantities without medical supervision as it tampers with nerve signals.Senior police officer Hemant Shinde confirmed to Mirror the details of the drug bust. "We are still investigating the case. Some arrests are yet to be made. More details will be shared when possible," Shinde said.On Saturday, a first information report was registered at the Thane Nagar police station under the Narcotics Drugs and Psychotropic Substances (NDPS) Act against Godbole and Gupta for possessing and selling a narcotic drug without licence.You Might Also LikeRecommended By Colombia From around the webMore from Mumbai MirrorRecommended By Colombia
2017-01-09Thane cops rope in Food and Drug Administration to probe Alprazolam drug seizure case - Times of India
Thane cops rope in Food and Drug Administration to probe Alprazolam drug seizure caseThane cops rope in Food and Drug Administration to probe Alprazolam drug seizure caseNishikant Karlikar | TNN | Jan 9, 2017, 10.23 PM IST(Representative image) THANE: A team of Food and Drug Administration (FDA) officers have been roped in by the Thane police for carrying out a search at a pharmaceutical company in Ambernath following a seizure of 6kg banned Alprazolam drug from two persons who are believed to be part of drug pushing cartel. The accused — Amit Godbole (32) and Lavkush Gupta (26) — were arrested on Saturday following a tip-off that they were carrying multiple packets of Alprazolam, a banned drug, stashed inside their backpack. The packets were worth Rs 15 lakh, said a police officer. On Sunday, the duo was taken by investigators to the company to understand their modus operandi. Godbole is a private pharmacist while Yadav is suspected to be helping him identify customers for selling the banned drug, a source said. A team of two dozen of police officials was already present at the pharma company in Ambernath to ascertain how the stock was smuggled out and if anyone else was involved in the racket. Sources said that there could be violations, which is why the FDA officials have been roped in. A senior officer, however, refused to divulge any other information about the case, as that could "hamper" the probe. "Presently, verification of the stock is going on along with relevant official documents to ascertain if there are any kinds of violations. Things will be clear in next few hours," said a senior police officer. Alprazolam or Alprax is a generic anti-anxiety medicine. In last few years, it has become the drug-in-demand among urban Indians, said a police officer. He said that it affects chemicals in the brain that may be unbalanced in people with anxiety. Close on the heels of a mega seizure of Rs 2000 crore of drug in April, the anti-narcotics cell is hopeful of making a similar breakthrough in the Alprazolam drug seizure, sources added. A case has been registered at Thane Nagar police under section 8-C, 20 (illegally possessing psychotropic drug) and 22 (seizure of narcotic drug) and section 29 of Narcotic Drugs and Psychotropic Substances (NDPS) Act, 1985.

Photo: ReutersHighlights1Thane Jail inmate claims cop asked protection money from him.2Inmate under trial for murder of Bhayander Congress corporator.3Accused Rajesh Singh was arrested in 2010.An accused in Thane Jail has levelled allegations against sub inspector Arun Madne of the jail saying that the police officer has demanded Rs 1 lakh from him. Accused Rajesh Singh, who is currently under trial for a murder of a Bhayander Congress corporator Praful Patil in May 2010 is currently residing in circle number 3 of the prison.According to Singh, who made the accusation against Madne thru a written application in Mumbai sessions court number 29, the policeman demanded Rs 1 lakh from him on January 7. When Singh refused to comply, he was ordered to come to circle office on Sunday where he was threatened saying that if he did not comply, then his location inside jail would be changed and he would be killed by inmates there.With this Singh has requested he be given permission to lodge an FIR against Madne and that he should be allowed to stay in circle no 3 and that "if anything happens to him inside jail then Madne should be held responsible for it". Singh's advocate Tarun Sharma argued in court that Madne is in-charge of circle number 3 and this is as if he is asking for protection money to be allowed to stay safe in the present barrack.Singh, an accused in the May 2010 murder of corporator Patil, was arrested by the Lucknow Police in 2010 and had been handed over to the Navghar Police. He has been in jail since then. According to jail official sources most accused level such allegation against authorities when they get too comfortable living in one area of jail and inmates and jail authorities notice some illegalities and decide on shifting the location of the accused.However in the present case the judge of Mumbai sessions court has issued notice to the Thane superintendent to file a reply by January 19 on the allegations levelled by Singh.Singh, who had allegedly been given the contract to eliminate Praful, was not traceable for long but was in Lucknow to allegedly meet underworld gangster Omprakash alias Babloo Srivastava, who is in jail. Singh was picked up from a hotel on a tip off and handed over to Navghar Police. He is the brother of Mira-Bhayander Municipal Corporation BJP corporator Prakash Singh and had been on the run for two years. The police had announced a reward of Rs 10,000 for info on Singh.  For more news from India Today, follow us on Twitter @indiatoday and on Facebook at facebook.com/IndiaToday For news and videos in Hindi, go to AajTak.in. ताज़ातरीन ख़बरों और वीडियो के लिए आजतक.इन पर आएं.  # Thane Jail# Rajesh Singh# Arun Madne# Praful Patil   Suggested StoriesRecommendedWatch Right NowTop TakesNEWSINDIAWORLDPHOTOSCRICKETMOVIESAUTOSPORTSLIFESTYLETECHEDUCATIONBUSINESSSITEMAPCopyright © 2016 Living Media India Limited.

2017-01-09Thane society protests against water crisis, builder assures separate ... - Times of India
Thane society protests against water crisis, builder assures separate lineThane society protests against water crisis, builder assures separate lineFreny Fernandes | TNN | Jan 10, 2017, 12.19 AM IST(Representative image) THANE: Residents of Thane's Dosti Vihar Complex will finally get enough water supply, as after almost three years, the builder has finally agreed to provide them with a separate water connection. The residents of the complex staged a day-long protest on Sunday, January 8 against the massive water supply shortage they have been facing for the last three years. Over 231 families residing in the D, E and F wings of Dosti Vihar's Vrishti society had been receiving the civic water supply for a maximum of two hours a day. On the days when the city reeled under water crisis, these residents were forced to survive on purchased bottled water and at times even tanker water. Fed up with this constant struggle to get this basic utility, these residents of the 231 flats stepped out of their homes and agitated outside the customer care and sales office of the Dosti Corporation. They even shut down the clubhouse, till their demand for a separate water pipeline connection was met. Girish Mhatre, the chairman of the society, said, "Ever since I moved into this society three years ago, we have had a water crisis. I approached the TMC, who informed us that they were providing sufficient water that would suffice for the entire complex. However our buildings faced water crisis as there was an issue with the internal water distribution in the society. We then realized that we were not getting our water supply because the society functioned on a looped-pipeline system and the D, E and F wings of Vrishti Society were last to get water." "After that we kept asking the builder to provide us with a separate pipeline, but in vain and finally we decided to protest," he added. In a meeting at the end of the day, the Dosti Corporation agreed to provide a separate water pipeline, the work for which will start on Monday. "We have always tried to ensure that our customers receive all the facilities they require. We also ensured that the entire complex receives sufficient water supply. However, there has been an issue with the distribution of this water among the societies, resulting in the last few buildings getting not as much as the others. Which is why we are starting a direct pipeline from the TMC connection to those affected in the Vrishti society. Work for this will commence soon," said Rajesh Shah, the executive director at Dosti Corporation.

2017-01-084-panel system makes independent candidates feel the heat in Thane - Times of India
4-panel system makes independent candidates feel the heat in Thane4-panel system makes independent candidates feel the heat in ThaneManoj Badgeri‘New System Does Not Provide Level-Playing Opportunity’ | TNN | Updated: Jan 8, 2017, 09.29 PM ISTThane: Independent candidates contesting the civic elections here could face a daunting task in the four-panel system of elections where voters are said to have shown limited support to the nominees from non-established or popular political parties. A majority of independent candidates, who were considering to throw their hat in the ring, are now rethinking their decisions after analyzing the Herculean task that lies ahead of them. Dr. Mridul Nile, associate professor at the department of civic and politics, Mumbai University, said that the new panel system doesn’t provide a level- playing opportunity to all candidates. While a candidate from an established group can ride piggyback on its manpower, those contesting independently will have a tough job managing the entire show themselves. Under the present four-panel system where voters from four wards will cast their ballot, the independent candidate will have to secure a sizeable number of votes from a constituency of more than 45,000 voters who are part of the freshly redrawn wards. The existing system is likely to increase the volume of his target audience by nearly four times, which could pose a challenge considering his limited resources. ‘‘Not only does the independent candidate need to reach out to nearly 45,000 people in the ward, but also has to ensure a huge number for ensuring victory in the ward,’’ which seems unfair. Further, supposing he would have needed around 4-5,000 votes for a comfortable margin as per the old system, he will now have to garner nearly four times more votes to retain his seat, which is a daunting task. ‘‘I have been actively working in a small pocket of Naupada , but now with the new system in place, I may have to rethink before taking the plunge,’’ said Unmesh Bagwe, an aspiring candidate. Activist-turned politician Nitin Deshpande said the four-panel system will easily push independents out of the race and give a leverage to established parties in the fray who have the money and manpower to reach out on a large scale. The situation, in comparison, is easier for heavyweights like the BJP and Sena or maybe the NCP who can use their volunteers to help reach out.Stay updated on the go with Times of India News App. Click here to download it for your device.RELATED From around the web Most searched Bollywood actresses on the internetCRITICSUNIONThe last chance for little Arisha to surviveMilaap10 Bollywood actresses who has won Miss India and Miss WorldCRITICSUNIONMore from The Times of India Watch: Congress leader shot dead in JabalpurChandigarh: After a warm December, rains bring wintry chillLight rain showers in national capital, temperature dips From the WebMore From The Times of India 10 people most affected by Modi's anti-black money crackdownCRITICSUNIONSave 2-year-old from rare form of cancer!Milaap7 movies you won’t believe Hrithik Roshan rejected!CRITICSUNIONBaby Manvi needs your support to fight CancerMilaap10 people most affected by Modi’s anti-corruption campaignCRITICSUNIONNow, kissing ‘prank' outrages women modesty in DelhiSushant Singh Rajput warned for his outspoken comments?Watch: Deepika Padukone’s alluring photoshootIs Shahid Kapoor trying to copy Michael Jackson's style?Former Army Chief General JJ Singh joins SAD CommentsCharacters Remaining: 3000OR PROCEED WITHOUT REGISTRATIONShare on FacebookShare on TwitterSIGN IN WITHFacebookGoogleEmailRefrain from posting comments that are obscene, defamatory or inflammatory, and do not indulge in personal attacks, name calling or inciting hatred against any community.

2017-01-084-panel system makes independent candidates feel the heat in ... - Times of India
4-panel system makes independent candidates feel the heat in Thane4-panel system makes independent candidates feel the heat in ThaneManoj Badgeri | TNN | Updated: Jan 9, 2017, 01.40 AM IST(Representative image) THANE: Independent candidates contesting the civic elections here could face a daunting task in the four-panel system of elections where voters are said to have shown limited support to the nominees from non-established or popular political parties. A majority of independent candidates, who were considering to throw their hat in the ring, are now rethinking their decisions after analyzing the Herculean task that lies ahead of them. Dr. Mridul Nile, associate professor at the department of civic and politics, Mumbai University, said that the new panel system doesn't provide a level- playing opportunity to all candidates. While a candidate from an established group can ride piggyback on its manpower, those contesting independently will have a tough job managing the entire show themselves. Under the present four-panel system where voters from four wards will cast their ballot, the independent candidate will have to secure a sizeable number of votes from a constituency of more than 45,000 voters who are part of the freshly redrawn wards. The existing system is likely to increase the volume of his target audience by nearly four times, which could pose a challenge considering his limited resources. ''Not only does the independent candidate need to reach out to nearly 45,000 people in the ward, but also has to ensure a huge number for ensuring victory in the ward,'' which seems unfair. Further, supposing he would have needed around 4-5,000 votes for a comfortable margin as per the old system, he will now have to garner nearly four times more votes to retain his seat, which is a daunting task. ''I have been actively working in a small pocket of Naupada , but now with the new system in place, I may have to rethink before taking the plunge,'' said Unmesh Bagwe, an aspiring candidate. Activist-turned politician Nitin Deshpande said the four-panel system will easily push independents out of the race and give a leverage to established parties in the fray who have the money and manpower to reach out on a large scale. The situation, in comparison, is easier for heavyweights like the BJP and Sena or maybe the NCP who can use their volunteers to help reach out.

Congress-NCP forge alliance for Thane civic pollsCongress-NCP forge alliance for Thane civic pollsManoj Badgeri | TNN | Jan 7, 2017, 10.26 PM IST(Representative image) THANE: Top city functionaries from the NCP and Congress held a preliminary meeting on Friday to stitch up a pre-poll alliance ahead of the elections to the Thane Municipal Corporation (TMC) that has been scheduled for February. The focus of the meet was to discuss the seat-sharing possibilities between the two parties and the strategies that have to be adopted against the BJP-Sena regime that has been ruling the TMC since the last 15 years. Observers said that the pre-poll arrangement between the Congress and NCP could be inevitable considering that both the parties are on a wobbly political wicket and the morale of its foot soldiers is at its lowest ebb. The Congress which had won 18 seats with a vote share of 813% or a tally of 86,440 votes in the 2012 civic polls here crumbled in the last five years with mass defection and resignations reducing its strength to just 9 corporators. The Sharad Pawar-led NCP which bagged 34 seats in the 130-member civic house in 2012, too, has been wrecked by internecine feuds and has failed to emerge as a strong opposition party here. Key Congress functionaries, including Ravi Phatak, Jayshree Phatak, Gurpreet Kaur, Kanchan Chindarkar, Rajan Kene, Malathy Patil, Meghna Handore, Reshma Patil and Sanjay Ghadigaonkar stepped down from their posts and joined hands with the saffron parties. The NCP, too, suffered a blow with the exit of corporators Bharat Chavan, Yogesh Jankar and Manohar Dumbre. The subsequent exits by senior leaders, including Ramakant Patil from Congress and Laxman Tikwani from NCP has further drained the parties that are now reportedly working towards filling up the voids left behind by the exits. ''The biggest concern for the Congress and NCP is the low morale of its party workers and functionaires. The top leaders are mired in cases of corruption with Chaggan Bhujbal spending time at Arthrur Road jail, the sword of Damocles hanging low on Ajit Pawar, Sunil Tatkare and Sharad Pawar as also on former chief minister Ashok Chavan. The NCP-Congress corportors in Thane, too, have been arrested on charges of abettment to suicide of builder Suraj Parmar and it will be a Himalayan task for them to face the voters with such allegations,'' political observers said. Moreover, the two allies shared an uneasy relationship and had severed ties immediately after 2012 civic elections when the Congress gave a tacit support to the SS-BJP for the Mayor polls. A meeting of senior leaders from both the parties was held on Friday to discuss possibilities of combining the two forces ahead of the polls in the city. The alliance was proposed before the Congress during the recent visit of NCP chief Sharad Pawar to the city. The parties now want to forge an alliance and allocate seats to candidates that could ensure them a victory in the polls. "The combined strength of the two parties that more or less share the same ideologies can together pose a tough challenge for the Sena and BJP if at all they contest independently," said a Congress activist. However, city president of NCP Anand Paranjape said that the parties would meet again on January 12 to finalize the seat distribution. The combined strength of the two parties that more or less share the same ideologies can together pose a tough challenge for the Sena and BJP if at all they contest independently. A meeting of senior leaders from both the parties was held on Friday.

2017-01-078 injured as relatives of accused assault Thane cops, free the thieves - Hindustan Times
8 injured as relatives of accused assault Thane cops, free the thieves mumbai Updated: Jan 07, 2017 17:21 IST Arvind Walmiki Hindustan Times Dozens of women began pelting the police with stones. (HT File Photo) Three inspectors and five police officers sustained injuries after being assaulted by the relatives of two men they had arrested in Ulhasnagar on Friday. The accused, Kalya and Bablya were held in connection with a case of housebreaking theft committed earlier this month. They were accused of stealing Rs1.50 lakh. The men were arrested when the central police, along with 15 Ulhasnagar police officers, received a tipoff and nabbed them around 2.30 pm. “We ascertained Kalya and Bablya’s location from CCTV camera footage. After verifying this, we went to the spot,” said Shakil Shaikh, a senior inspector from the Ulhasnagar police station. “We caught Bablya and Kalya, but could not trace the third suspect. While we were accompanying the two accused to the police van, Bablya’s mother, sister and other relatives approached. We thought they might plead with us and ask us to let the men go. However, they started pelting us with stones. We tried to shield ourselves, but got injured. Dozens of other women arrived and started assaulting us. We warned them against doing so, but they bit two officers and freed the accused”, said Shaikh. The accused then fled. Police said Bablya’s mother is also wanted in nine cases of housebreaking theft. However, she too managed to flee. “Bablya and his mother consider housebreaking theft to be a family business. We are trying to trace the accused and their family members”, added Shaikh. “We were helpless as we were surrounded by the women. They not only beat us, but also verbally abused us. We alerted the control room. Extra police were deployed and the situation was brought under control,” said an officer from the central police station. The injured police inspectors have been identified as Anil Bhise, Shrikant Meher and Vijay Dolas. A case has been lodged against Laxmi Bai, Jaya Metkar and Jyoti Kale and 12 others under relevant sections of the Indian Penal Code.

BJP senior leaders to meet in ThaneBJP senior leaders to meet in ThaneManoj Badgeri | TNN | Jan 6, 2017, 02.51 PM ISTTHANE: A high-level committee of the state-unit of BJP will meet at Thane next week. The conclave, a part of its routine three month review meets in the state, will be attended by party MLAs, MLCs, MPs and ministers. The issue of forging an alliance with its traditional ally, the Shiv Sena, is also likely to be discussed, say activists.The BJP state executive committee is likely to gauge the mood of its activists and foot soldiers ahead of the civic polls in Thane and Mumbai before taking a decision on continuing its alliance with the Shiv Sena or not at the meeting."The mood at the ground level in the party is upbeat especially after the several tough but development oriented initiatives launched at the centre and the state. The party activists here feel the response to demonetization has also been good and could help brighten the prospects of the party at the civic elections," says a party activist.The conclave will be attended by party MLAs, MLCs, MPs and ministers at state. Office-bearers, only those above the rank of district president will attend."Our party leaders have taken some innovate and tough decisions ever since we came in power in the country and state. The Sena that has been ruling the city since last several decades has done nothing for the development of the party. We would want our party to fight the polls solo on our development issues instead of allying with the Sena," said a party worker from the city.Stay updated on the go with Times of India News App. Click here to download it for your device.RELATED From around the web World's highest paid cricketersCRITICSUNIONHelp this mechanic save his daughter!Milaap10 Bollywood actresses who has won Miss India and Miss WorldCRITICSUNIONMore from The Times of India Drugs allegedly found in beauty queen's carRanveer Singh's yet another unusual party avatarHrithik Roshan ranks third Most Handsome Man in the world From the WebMore From The Times of India 10 people most affected by Modi's anti-black money crackdownCRITICSUNIONThe last chance for little Arisha to surviveMilaap7 movies you won’t believe Hrithik Roshan rejected!CRITICSUNIONHelp save 3-yr-old from scary blood disorder!Milaap10 people most affected by Modi’s anti-corruption campaignCRITICSUNIONSahara Birla diaries case: Prashant Bhushan files affidavitNIA files chargesheet against LeT terrorist Bahadur AliFiscal deficit hits 86% of budget estimate in April-NovemberNRI woman trapped men to get money to marry one she lovedBengaluru molestation: 'I was groped, saw girls crying' CommentsCharacters Remaining: 3000OR PROCEED WITHOUT REGISTRATIONShare on FacebookShare on TwitterSIGN IN WITHFacebookGoogleEmailRefrain from posting comments that are obscene, defamatory or inflammatory, and do not indulge in personal attacks, name calling or inciting hatred against any community.

BJP senior leaders to meet in Thane - Times of India
2017-01-06Thane politicians rush to disseminate information on new panel system - Times of India
Thane politicians rush to disseminate information on new panel systemThane politicians rush to disseminate information on new panel systemManoj BadgeriWary of losing out on voters who could possibly stay away from the poll process due to the confusion in the new four panel system, city netas are now occupied with disseminating information in their respective wards on their own. | TNN | Jan 6, 2017, 04.08 PM IST Milind Patankar, a sitting BJP corporator in Thane. THANE: Wary of losing out on voters who could possibly stay away from the poll process due to the confusion in the new four panel system, city netas are now occupied with disseminating information in their respective wards on their own. Few corporators were seen printing pamphlets at their own expense and distributing them among the ward to ensure the voter was acclimatised with the new scheme. "Instead of staging any events or luring voters with gifts, I prefer to empower them with the new scheme of elections. I don't want any voter to miss out participating in the process due to lack of knowledge about the new process or any rumours about the same," says Milind Patankar, a sitting BJP corporator who was among the first to come out with this initiative. Another corporator from the city said she was in the process of holding an awareness camps in her present ward and the adjoining areas that have been combined in her jurisdiction now. "I want to reach out to maximum voters and also make them aware of the new poll process," said the GB road corporator. Residents said they will be casting their ballot in the forthcoming civic polls electing four different candidates in their ward after the state enforced the four-panel system starting last year. Many voters from the city, however, are still unaware of the new system that will be in force in the city during the February civic polls. Queries like whether each voter will be required to cast four separate votes and which elected representative of the four would be responsible for the developmental works in their respective wards remained the popular doubts among residents. Officials say the new system was introduced in May 2016 after the state amended section 5 of the Maharashtra Municipal Corporation Act allowing election of multiple corporators (not less than three and not more than five) in a single ward. Accordingly, limits of the existing 65 wards in the city were redrawn to form 33 wards with population of 60,000. The existing wards have a maximum populations of 15,000 which means that the size of each ward has been increased by four times. Voters, during the election process, will have to exercise their votes four times wherein all the names in each of the four panels will be highlighted in separate colours on the ballot units that have space for 14 names each. For example, if there are four candidates in panel A, their names will be listed alongside their party symbol in one colour followed by the fifth space for NOTA. A space would be left after this and names in the next panel would be listed thereon in a separate colour and the same procedure would be in place for the next two panels too, explain officials. Voters will punch in their choice, one for each panel, and it will not take more than 90 seconds for the entire process, says a senior election officer. The number of polling booths has also been increased to 1650 from around 1470 last time based on around 750-800 voter capacity for each. The number of booths would be finalized later once the voter's list is frozen by next week, informed Omprakash Divte, deputy municipal commissioner and in charge of the election department at TMC.

2017-01-05Demonetisation hits real estate market in Mumbai and Thane - Times of India
Demonetisation hits real estate market in Mumbai and ThaneDemonetisation hits real estate market in Mumbai and ThaneManoj Badgeri & Nauzer K Bharucha | TNN | Jan 5, 2017, 07.28 PM ISTDevelopers said except for few urgent deals, nothing much has transpired and the situation is unlikely to ease... Read More MUMBAI/THANE: Real estate market in Mumbai and Thane has taken a severe hit since demonetization was announced on November 8. Industry observers said the sector has reached stagnation point with many players claiming to be unable to crack even a single deal in the last seven weeks. Property expert and owner of Praron Consultancy, Pranay Vakil, said transactions have come to a "standstill" in the last 50 days. "People did not have cash to give in deals where cash is component is prevalent. Others postponed buying hoping that interest rates would go down," he said. Vakil said another reason was the expectation that property prices will reduce. "There were several media reports that rates will go down. Potential buyers thought it would be prudent to delay buying property," he added. Market sources said the high value residential market has been the worst affected with poor to nil sales since last month. Pankaj Kapoor of Liases Foras, a real estate research firm, said the industry is now in a "reset mode". "I expect a price correction once interest rates are lowered," he said. "People are waiting and watching right now. Builders who were building luxury properties are shifting their focus to affordable housing in the distant suburbs," he said. Property consultant Ashok Narang of L. Lachhmandas & Co said inquiries in the residential segment have slowed down, but genuine buyers are bargaining hard with developers in the luxury segment. "It is now a buyers' market," he said. However, residential leasing has not been affected. "Developers with big brand names will sustain in this market, but at the same time they should provide incentives to buyers to improve sales," said Narang. In Thane, the local real estate association claimed many of their members haven't finalized any sales deal since November 8. "Many of my clients have preferred to wait and watch for the impact of demonetization before taking any decision. There are many brokers in our association who have not done any business. Rental market that is usually buzzing has seen some activities but largely clients are now bargaining for reducing the rental amount," says association president Rajesh Gadgil. Ramesh Nair, COO - Business & International Director, Jones Lang Lasalle, India, said the secondary market and even those in the primary segment where cash component plays a significant role has seen a dive. "We were looking for purchasing a flat in Thane but have now deferred our decision as we feel the rates could crash anytime in the near future. Any drop in prices could benefit us as we could end up saving lakhs," said Swati Sharma, a home seeker from the suburbs who has been aspiring to relocate to Thane soon. Developers said except for few urgent deals, nothing much has transpired and the situation is unlikely to ease till the next fiscal. The secondary market transactions that comprise roughly 25% of all the real estate deals inked in Thane is also badly impacted as the possibility of cash component here is high, said a local realtor. Areas like Naupada, Panchpakhadi, Khopat, Kopri that are in high demand along with few in Vasant Vihar and even the GB road has seen inquiries plummeting. Officials at the eleven registrar offices across Thane claim the footfalls seem less but the impact can be ascertained only by end of the fiscal when a comparison can be drawn. "People come for registrations as most of them might have already finalised their deals before November or during Diwali," said a state revenue officer. Experts say that while majority transactions might have frozen, distress sales or purchases is happening with either party reaching a consensus and ready to forsake the cash element or defer payments based on mutual understanding. "Those who want to urgently dispose their properties either to migrate or to meet any other personal financial requirements might be ready to sell at lesser than the market rates. We are getting few requests for such properties of late. A large segment will however wait and watch," says a realty agent from the city.

2017-01-05Tech centre named after Dr Kalam opens in Thane for kids aged 8-16 - Times of India
Tech centre named after Dr Kalam opens in Thane for kids aged 8-16Tech centre named after Dr Kalam opens in Thane for kids aged 8-16Freny Fernandes | TNN | Jan 6, 2017, 04.03 AM IST(Representative image) THANE: A creativity centre aimed at encouraging budding scientists and innovators in the city was inaugurated alongside the Kachrali Lake on Thursday. The one-storey centre named Dr Abdul Kalam Creativity Centre, brainchild of the city-based tech centre founder Purushottam Pachpande and the Thane Municipal Corporation (TMC) was inaugurated at the hands of Sanjay More, city Mayor. The centre is stocked up with electronic spare parts, circuit boards, soldering irons, magnifying glasses, cutters, broad boards, et al to innovate projects that can be easily detached to be modified or reused. Pachpande, who has been encouraging children to come up with innovative projects at the Children's Tech Centre, said, "Dr Kalam was a scientist closely associated with education. He advised students to dream, think, acquire knowledge and put that knowledge to use in order to attain true success. I have tried to inculcate this in my classes. While I started imparting knowledge about the importance of hands-on experience in my centre, I really wished that every child availed these facilities. Now, with the help of the civic body, we can actually make this wish a reality." The audio-visual technology-equipped ground floor of the centre is reserved for the tech-batches, while the terrace has been kept aside as a study and reading hall for class X and XII students. The centre is open to all children aged eight to 16 throughout the week from 10am to 10pm with two teachers designated to teach in batches of five. Anushka Wagh, a class VI student, said, "I like science, and want to learn robotics. But, as I already have dance and singing classes, I didn't ask my parents before. Now I can come down with my parents and join the tech centre while they take their daily walk." The children will be taught the basics of electricity, circuits and resources in the first phase of three months after which they will be taught the mechanical and core knowledge of the course. City Mayor More said, "We have a lot of talent hiding in every child in the city, and it is high time that we set up such platforms to not only bring out those skills, but also sharpen them. If successful, we can set up such centres across the city over time."

The new Kausa Sports Complex was thrown open to the kids in Mumbra on Wendesday. A friendly football match was held here for the girl students of 13 civic schools. The 67,817 sq m Thane Municipal Corporation (TMC) stadium was inaugurated by the NCP. The complex houses a number of facilities like an eight-lane 400-m long synthetic athletic track, an athletic gallery, an indoor badminton hall which consists of four courts, an Olympic size swimming pool, tennis court, basketball court, volleyball court, yoga, carrom and chess hall. There is also a sports library which kids can avail of. Manish Joshi, additional municipal commissioner, said, "There is a lot of talent brewing in the bylanes of the city. By constructing these stadiums, we hope to hone such talent and help sharpen it. While our primary intention is to provide them with basic facilities, the corporation is also focussed on inspiring young girls in this pocket to step out and embrace their passion for sports. This is why we inaugurated the stadium with a match for female footballers from civic schools. We are also going to start work on an only girls' ground near the stadium soon." These girls are now optimistic of the support they have and will be receiving from the civic body. Firdous Shaikh (14), one of the footballers, said, "When I started playing football four months ago, my family was a little hesitant as I had to remove my burqa and wear t-shirt and pants. But, when they saw how much I loved the sport, they became very supportive. They are so proud of me that they come for all my matches." "Not too many girls took to sports here. However, things are slowly changing. If the corporation continues to support us in terms of getting our own ground. We could even get better than the boys," she said.

In 1967, Shiv Sena got its first major electoral break in the Thane civic polls. Written by Shubhangi Khapre | Mumbai | Published:January 6, 2017 1:47 am Through the Thane conclave, BJP wants to set the stage for a battle against its saffron ally which has always held an upper hand in the third most industrialised belt of Maharashtra. BJP will convene a two-day state executive meeting in Thane in January, a week after the BJP national executive meeting on January 6 and 7 in Delhi. The decision to choose Thane has its roots in political history. In 1967, Shiv Sena got its first major electoral break in the Thane civic polls. At the time, the Thane civic body was restricted to just 40 seats of which Sena bagged 17. It was through Thane that the Sena made inroads into Mumbai a year later in 1968. The Sena was formed on June 19, 1966. Watch What Else Is making News Through the Thane conclave, BJP wants to set the stage for a battle against its saffron ally which has always held an upper hand in the third most industrialised belt of Maharashtra. Another reason for selecting Thane is to prepare the pitch where the party finds the going tough. The elections for ten municipal corporations including Thane will be held in February. At the conclave, the BJP will project politics of good governance under the leadership of Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis to enhance the party’s electoral prospects. The sources said, “Our campaign will be positive emphasising on development and public welfare in urban sectors.” The party believes Fadnavis’ efforts to promote the industrial belt with Navi Mumbai international airport and water transport projects would be beneficial to the party. It would also highlight the rampant illegal constructions and corruption in the Thane municipal corporation ruled by the Sena. In the 2012 Thane Municipal Corporation elections, the Shiv Sena was way ahead with 53 seats out of 130 seats. While the BJP won only seven seats, NCP bagged 34 seats, Congress 18 seats, MNS 2 seats and others 8 seats. According to BJP poll managers, “The 2014 assembly elections which gave BJP a lead in three segments out of six will work to its advantage. It also believes that anti-incumbency factor against Sena, coupled with weak NCP and Congress would help BJP to occupy the space.” Of the six assembly segments, BJP had won three, Shiv Sena 2 and NCP one. The BJP MLAs are Narendra Mehta (Meera Bhayandar); Sanjay Kelkar (Thane); Manda Mhatre (Belapur). The Sena’s candidates include senior minister Eknath Shinde (Kori-Pachpakhadi); Pratap Sarnaik (Ovala Majiswada). The NCP’s lone MLA Sandeep Naik represents Airoli seat. The reports from Sena and BJP headquarters point to the partners planning to contest the Thane civic polls separately. Insiders in the Sena and BJP confirmed to The Indian Express, “The top leadership of both parties believe the Kalyan-Dombivli civic poll model where they fought against each other in elections and formed alliance post polls will be replicated in Thane and Mumbai.” Senior ministers of both BJP and Sena admit, “The separate contest helps them maximise their organisational strength. Whereas an alliance would restrict their organisational growth.” A senior BJP functionary said, “Taking a clear lead in Thane would require a quantum jump from seven seats to 65 seats. It is a mammoth task.” The BJP official said, “We believe anti-incumbency factor against the Sena ruled Thane Municipal Corporation specially the rampant corruption and illegal construction would help us to make inroads.” Best of ExpressEntertainmentOm Puri passes away after a massive heart attack, funeral at 6 pmEntertainmentOm Puri passes away after a massive heart attack, funeral at 6 pmEntertainmentRangoon trailer: Bold, beautiful and classy, courtesy KanganaEntertainmentRIP Om Puri: Shocked Bollywood reacts to veteran actor's deathEntertainmentOm Puri dead: Shabana Azmi mourns loss, says will miss 'the fun, the laughter'.

2017-01-04Post Thane call centre bust, India may be emerging as a major centre for fraud: Report - The Indian Express
Post Thane call centre bust, India may be emerging as a major centre for fraud: Report Post Thane call centre bust, India may be emerging as a major centre for fraud: Report Police in Thane last year unearthed a scam in which callers from bogus call centres in Mira Road area and Bhayandar duped US citizens by pretending to be calling from the Internal Revenue Service (IRS). By: Express Web Desk | New Delhi | Updated: January 4, 2017 3:57 pm One of the call centres raided by the police in Thane (Express file photo) India is emerging as a major centre for fraud although it has no such past reputation, an FBI agent serving as a legal attache at the US embassy in New Delhi told The New York Times after police in Thane last year unearthed a scam in which callers from bogus call centres in Mira Road area and Bhayandar duped US citizens by pretending to be calling from the Internal Revenue Service (IRS). While 80 people who were present at the call centres were arrested when they were raided, the police said the scam was just the ‘tip of the iceberg.’ Suhel Daud, the FBI agent, told the newspaper that the presence of a large call-centre culture and increasing number of English-speaking youngsters looking for jobs are some of the trends that lead to such a scam. The Thane scam was busted on October 4 last year when the police raided nine call centres in the area. The callers would threaten US citizens to instantly settle the tax default by making a payment to them. Over 20 persons including Sagar Thakkar alias Shaggy, the mastermind, and his sister Reema have been named as wanted accused. The NYT report details how Betsy Broder, who covers international fraud at the Federal Trade Commission, got a call from two teenagers from India who shared details of the scam. “If they reached a person who was sufficiently terrified or gullible — this was known in the business as a “sale” — they would instruct that person to buy thousands of dollars’ worth of iTunes cards to avoid prosecution, they said; the most rattled among them complied. The victim would then send the codes from the iTunes cards to the swindlers, giving them access to the money on the card,” the report said detailing how Americans got conned by people pretending to be IRS officials. The report also detailed how the scammers preyed on fear of Americans and threatened to put their families in trouble if they did not make the payments. Inaben Desai, a woman in Texas, was one of the victims in 2014 who was robbed of $17,786, nearly all her savings. A top police official told The Indian Express in October that revelations made by the mastermind in the case pointed to the accused being involved in more scams. There were also fears that the accused may have been involved in a medical pharma case as well. © The Indian Express Online Media Pvt Ltd Best of ExpressSportsMS Dhoni steps down as India's limited overs captainEntertainmentDangal box office collection day 13: Aamir film to enter 300-cr club, give company to Sultan, PK, Bajrangi BhaijaanEntertainmentRaees song teaser: SRK shares glimpse of 'O Zaalima'.

2017-01-04Thane gets its RO-RO trial wish granted - Asian Age - The Asian Age
Thane gets its RO-RO trial wish granted THE ASIAN AGE. | ARPIKA BHOSALE Published : Jan 5, 2017, 1:47 am IST Updated : Jan 5, 2017, 7:07 am IST This is exactly what Thane residents had asked of the railway so as to curb traffic snarls and pollution.  At present 500 trucks ferry freight from JNPT to Vasai daily via Thane. Mumbai: Thane residents’ wishes may soon be granted, what with the first trial of railway’s unique RO-RO service to be carried out between JNPT and Vasai Road on January 5. The trial will see goods’ trucks piggyback flat rail wagons between JNPT and Vasai Road after which they can once again take the road. This is exactly what Thane residents had asked of the railway so as to curb traffic snarls and pollution. The RO-RO service, currently in use on Konkan Railway (KR), has saved diesel and proved more eco-friendly than trucks that ferry goods (consumer and non-consumer) to and from north India. At present, at least 500 such trucks ferry goods from JNPT port to Vasai and further north of the country.   Officials said that the request was made by BJP Rajya Sabha MP Vinay Sahasrabuddhe along with residents of the area. Western Railway (WR) divisional railway manager Mukul Jain said, “We will be conducting trial up to Boisar on Thursday morning and if all goes well, we will begin building infrastructure like ramps for the trucks to get onto the wagons.” A railway official on condition of anonymity said, “We were told that the issue was raised by Mr Sahastrabuddhe and accordingly, railway minister Suresh Prabhu has asked us to see if this is feasible as residents of that area have been complaining about the intense smog as a result of fuel emissions on Thane road”. Mr Prabhu is learnt to have told the Railway Board that he would like it if the railway did its bit for the environment including decongesting the Thane-Mulund-Porbunder road that sees the densest road traffic. Mr Sahasrabuddhe was not available on phone and did not respond to text messages sent by this newspaper.

While migratory birds have made Thane green cover their home for this winter, environmentalists said that there is a noticeable decrease in the overall bird count as a result of rampant deforestation and encroachments on wetlands over the years. Though the Yeoor forest and mangroves at Kopri and Kalwa pockets continue to be bright spots, green activists said there is a desperate need to chalk out a conservation plan for these pockets which attract migratory birds and other animal and bird species. They claim that the continuous hacking of mangroves, trees and destruction of wetlands in the name of development has not only killed the habitats of these birds, but also impacted the climate that attracts migratory birds to Thane. Nilesh Bhanage, founder of the Plant and Animal Welfare Society (PAWS), said, "I have been visiting forest, wetland and any natural belt for bird watching for over a decade and personally seen wetland patches in Thakurli, bordering the Thane creek and near Bhiwandi bypass road vanish under debris and construction work that are still underway. The bio-diversity-rich Parsik Hill is now covered with slums and used for open defecation. With these bird habitats being wiped out, the birds, too, will start moving soon." He added that there was an ongoing tussle between development and environment which is seen through projects like Metro parking lot in the Sanjay Gandhi National Park (SGNP) forest or tunnels under the SGNP. "In each of these initiatives it is nature which takes a hit. Deforestation will eventually also increase the mercury levels, resulting in more birds moving away from this belt," he said. A recent survey of the avifauna, conducted by zoologist Clara Correia and evironmental activist Avinash Bhagat in Thane East's eco-system revealed that though the number of bird species flocking to the natural habitats has shown a slight rise because of new sightings, the overall number of birds visiting their Thane habitat has come down drastically. Purushottam Kale, president of city-based Paryavaran Dakshata Manch, said, "There are numerous laws in place for the protection of the environment. However, it is very easy for many to find loopholes through these laws. Trees uprooted in road widening activities and building constructions need to be replaced with five more trees, which does not happen in reality. We need to see stricter implementation of the laws to conserve our city's environment. Permissions to cut trees should not be so easily sanctioned."

2017-01-03Migratory birds make Thane green spaces home to escape extremely cold weathers - Times of India
Migratory birds make Thane green spaces home to escape extremely cold weathersMigratory birds make Thane green spaces home to escape extremely cold weathersFreny Fernandes | TNN | Jan 3, 2017, 10.32 PM ISTRepresentative image THANE: The cool and pleasant weather has attracted flocks of migratory winged beauties to green pockets in the city. A vast number of these species from the northern region of India, Europe and Siberia have turned the city's forest cover and creek areas into their home during winter, said environmentalists. Migratory bird families such as Waders, Flycatchers, Eagles and many others are examples of these migratory birds that fly down to the western zone for two to three months. Avinash Bhagat, an avid bird-watcher and member of a city-based non government organisation (NGO), said, "During this season, the northern regions in the Himalayas or even Europe, Siberia and other surrounding areas face extremely cold climates. The water turns to ice and the air is filled with snowfall and fog. In order to escape this, these bird species fly down to Mumbai and Thane where the weather is pleasant. The birds from the Wader species, including Broad Billed Sandpiper, Green Sandpiper, Marsh Sandpiper, Black-tailed Godwit, Grey Plover have come to the creek area from Europe and Siberia." He added, "Meanwhile, the Flycatcher family, including the Asian Paradise Flycatcher, Brown Crested Flycatcher and Grey Flycatcher have come down from the Himalayan belt to the Yeoor, Nagla and other ranges of the Sanjay Gandhi National Park (SNGP). The Greater Spotted, Tawny and Steppe Eagle Shave that come from China and nearby areas are spotted in various city locations." Interestingly, two bird watchers from the city spotted two rare vagrant birds-- Red Breasted Merganser and Common Shelduck, which are seen here once in 10 to 15 years, this week. City-based environmental NGOs are arranging for a number of bird watching and photography trails to expose citizens to the bio-diversity rich section of the city. Biwalda Kale, an environmentalist associated with the Bombay Natural History Society, said, "Over the years, there has been a lot of encroachment on green spaces, affecting the bio-diversity. It is only when people are aware of the beauty and importance of environment will they be motivated to conserve it. This awareness can be achieved only if they witness the life in forests, wetlands and green spaces. We have started arranging for nature trails and bird watching events at Sewri mudflats, SGNP and Karnala Bird Sanctuary."

Jadhav subsequently applied for anticipatory bail in the case and was granted interim relief.On Tuesday, the Home Department issued an order, a copy of which is with The Hindu, for a five-member committee to be set up to probe the allegations against Jadhav. The order appoints IPS officer Aswathi Tsering Dorje, currently Additional Commissioner of Police (Local Arms) in Mumbai, as the head of the committee, which also includes ACP (Juvenile Aid Protection Unit) Arvind Sawant, advocate Anupama Pawar, Farida Lambay, the co-founder of NGO Pratham and Aruna Mugutkar, Deputy SP, Yerwada Central Jail, Pune. The order further instructs the committee to submit a report of its probe to the Home Department within two months.The Prisons department had earlier conducted an inquiry into the allegations made against Jadhav, which was headed by IGP (Prisons) Rajvardhan Sinha, and a report was duly submitted to the State government by the department.The complainant had submitted WhatsApp messages and audio clips that Jadhav had allegedy sent to her at the time.Jadhav also faced similar charges in 2013 when he was the principal of the Jail Officers Training Center in Yerwada. He was suspended for 18 months after an inquiry found him guilty of using abusive language and crude gestures towards newly-recruited women officers.The writer is a freelance journalist Post a Comment More In Mumbai Related Articles << Previous Story Aamir Khan resolves to make 30 tehsils drought-free in 2017 Next Story >> Please Wait while comments are loading...

2017-01-02Thane: Doctor jailed for molesting patient - The Indian Express
Thane: Doctor jailed for molesting patient Thane: Doctor jailed for molesting patient A 42-year-old doctor attached to a hospital, who was found guilty of molesting an ICU patient has been convicted and jailed by a court in Thane. By: PTI | Thane | Published:January 2, 2017 1:47 pm A 42-year-old doctor, found guilty of molesting an ICU patient has been convicted and jailed by a Thane court. (Source: Express Photo) A 42-year-old doctor attached to a hospital, who was found guilty of molesting an ICU patient has been convicted and jailed by a court in Thane. In a recent order, Additional Chief Judicial Magistrate R J Pawar convicted doctor Jayant S Jadhav, a resident of Mulund under section 354 of the IPC and sentenced him to one year rigorous imprisonment. The convict was also slapped with a fine of Rs 3,000. WATCH WHAT ELSE IS IN THE NEWS The accused will also undergo additional three months rigorous imprisonment, which will run concurrently, the court ordered. Prosecutor Jaishree Korde appearing for the prosecution told the court that the victim is a housewife suffering from acute asthama and as her condition deteriorated on May 18, 2013 she was admitted for treatment to the ICU of the hospital where the accused was on duty. In the ICU there were other patients too whose beds were separated by curtains. It was around 3 AM that under the pretext of checking the pulse rate and blood pressure the accused came to the bed of the victim and molested her. When the victim resisted he kissed her hand and left, the court was told. However, the accused came to the bed once again after one hour and repeated the act, the prosecutor said. The victim complained to her husband and children and also urged the hospital management to take action. However, when nothing was done, the woman on getting discharged from the hospital on May 21 lodged a FIR with Naupada police who arrested the accused, the court was told. “In the present case the accused is facing trial for the offence Punishable under section 354 of the Indian Penal Code, 1860. Therefore, considering the nature of the offence, I find that the benefits of the Section 3 and 4 of the Probation of Offenders Act 1958 cannot be given to the accused and he deserves punishment for the act he did. The act which the accused had done has to be dealt with stringently, the court held and awarded him jail.

2017-01-02Thane collector shuts down quarry near Turbhe dump - Times of India
Thane collector shuts down quarry near Turbhe dumpThane collector shuts down quarry near Turbhe dumpTNN | Jan 3, 2017, 12.51 AM ISTRepresentative image NAVI MUMBAI: A quarry, stone crusher and tar plant near the landfill site in Turbhe was sealed by Thane collector, Mahendra Kalyankar, on Saturday due to violation of rules. The stone crusher was sub-let to another party which had violated the operational rules and the collector promptly sealed the entry to the quarry and the machinery, said NMMC additional commissioner Ankush Chavan. The quarry comes in civic area, but sources said, that it is under collector land and property jurisdiction. The quarry is close to the dog sterilisation centre and the dust particles were causing respiratory problems. The health of 38 NMMC employees, including two veterinary doctors, a surgeon, 33 dog catchers and two para-veterinary staff was getting affected. The quarry operations had been stopped around six months ago. Civic commissioner Tukaram Mundhe, taking note of the workers' health, had held an internal meeting on June 10, 2016 and apprised the collector about the issue. The collector had responded promptly and operations were stopped from the next day. The civic officials said that the dust was affecting the workers' physical activity and several had become weak and reported symptoms of asthma. But it was a temporary halt and, when it was found that the unit had violated norms again, the collector closed it . Four years ago, the then-NMMC commissioner had taken objection to the quarry and the collector had closed the operation, but a petition by the quarry owner to the minister led to the quarry being operational once again.

2017-01-02Elvis Lives! for many, thanks to Thane Dunn - Truro Daily News
Elvis Lives! for many, thanks to Thane Dunn Famous Elvis impersonator returns to Truro with new renditions of The King Harry Sullivan hsullivan@trurodaily.com Published on January 2, 2017 X Send to a friend Friend's name * Friend's email * Your name * Your email * Comments  Thane Dunn, a renowned Elvis impersonator, will be performing in Truro on Jan. 14. © TRURO, N.S. - For the record, Thane Dunn is not Elvis. “People have stalked our home, or parked outside my house,” the Moncton resident and renowned Elvis Presley impersonator said. “I’m not Elvis and I don’t claim to be and when I’m doing my show it’s a different thing. I’m trying to take on the persona of Elvis. But the rest of the time, I’m Thane Dunn. I’m not crazy – I don’t think I’m Elvis or anything.” I like to have fun and I think one of the things that genuinely made Elvis a superstar was that he loved to have fun. Elvis had the ability to laugh at himself. Thane Dunn, performer In 2009, however, Dunn did earn the distinction of winning the world’s largest international Elvis tribute artist contest, a feat that prompted him to turn a hobby into a fulltime career in entertainment. “And it’s been a kind of whirlwind thing ever since,” he says. On Jan. 14, Dunn once again returns to Truro with his show, this time at the Best Western Glengarry, billed as the Fan Appreciation Extravaganza. And regardless of whether you’ve seen him perform before, Dunn said, “We never go back with the same show. We always makes things new, we always learn new material.” Dunn’s fondness for Elvis grew from when he was a child, spending time with his mother watching movies while his travelling salesman father was away. Thane Dunn, a renowned Elvis impersonator, will be performing in Truro on Jan. 14. “And Elvis was just so cool. His charisma would come through the TV set and he got all the women and he knew karate and he drove sports cars and helicopters; there wasn’t anything that he couldn’t do,” he said. “I just sort of fell in love with that. And I had a little girlfriend and she had a little record player and we would dance on the bed to ‘Return to Sender.’” Despite his blond hair and lack of sideburns, Dunn was often compared to Elvis during high school. Later, playing in bands covering such groups as Jim Morrison and the Doors or the Rolling Stones, he was often told how much he sounded like Elvis. One year, while vacationing in Las Vegas, he was repeatedly approached and asked where his show was, despite the fact, he didn’t have one. Eventually, Dunn surrendered to the inevitable and became a professional Elvis impersonator. “I like to have fun and I think one of the things that genuinely made Elvis a superstar was that he loved to have fun. Elvis had the ability to laugh at himself,” he said. “I think we had a lot of similarities.” Dunn continues to do his show out of respect for the late superstar, who died in 1977. He wants his audience members to come away saying, “Wow, that guy’s a freak, I felt like I was watching Elvis not Thane Dunn.” And if he ever reaches a point where that’s not the case, it will be time for him to leave the building. “It’s always about keeping that excitement alive,” Dunn said. “If I ever set foot on a stage and felt, here we go again, then I would give it up.” harry.sullivan@tc.tc.

2017-01-01Railway mishap rate in Thane zone down by 10% in 2016 compared to previous year - Times of India
Railway mishap rate in Thane zone down by 10% in 2016 compared to previous yearRailway mishap rate in Thane zone down by 10% in 2016 compared to previous yearTNN | Updated: Jan 2, 2017, 03.35 AM ISTRepresentative image THANE: Intensive awareness campaigns about safe travel on trains and vigil along several track-crossing spots has helped the Central Railways reduce the mishap rate by nearly 10% in the Thane zone in 2016 compared to the previous year. The Mumbai railway police statistics reveal that the number of fatal accidents in 2016 was 351 while in the year before, 391 people had died in various rail-related mishaps. The volume of injured passengers has also reduced to 354 this year. Thane section, however, retains the dubious distinction of being the third most dangerous zone on the entire Mumbai railway network after Kalyan and Kurla that have been seeing the highest volume of railway accidents year after year. Railway officials say that most mishaps occur due to commuters falling off trains or people getting knocked down while crossing tracks. The suburbs have witnessed a spurt in residential colonies that has seen a direct jump in passenger footfalls at the stations, especially those between Dombivli and Thane, but the same hasn't been matched with an increase in services. Many passengers are forced to board crowded trains from Diva, Mumbra and Kalwa and travel on footboards, leading to instances of few falling off when the train is moving. Further, several porous points along the tracks on either sides or level crossings has also led to a sporadic rise in number of people infringing on the tracks and getting run over. The two level crossings in Kalwa and Diva witness a high number of mishaps as people are tempted to cross over without using the bridges, informs a railway official. Few commuters from Vitawa and Kalwa often walk down the tracks to and from Thane station dangerously exposing themselves to being knocked down by speeding trains on the route. Officials claimed the drop in mishap figures was majorly due to concerted efforts of the railways and the police to make aware of the perils of dangerous travel and said they were working to further reduce the fatalities this year. Several initiatives including increasing height of platforms, meeting religious leaders in Mumbra to publicly caution youngsters from not travelling on footboards, making continuous announcements or displaying graphics which seems to have had an impact, said railway officials from the Thane section. An official illustrates saying that while there were several cases of passengers losing lives and limbs in 2015 by falling in gap traps, not many similar cases were reported last year. "Height of platforms was increased wherever necessary and passengers continuously alerted of not boarding or alighting moving trains," said an official. "We have also been cautioning commuters against the perils of travelling rooftop or footboard or even crossing tracks. We started few shuttle services between Kurla and Kalyan and also gave a halt to fast trains and Diva that may have helped reduce some load off the section," says a Central Railway official. Meanwhile, activists have said the efforts need to be made to further reduce the numbers. "Maximum number of mishaps occurs because of line crossing. We have asked the railways to remove ramps from the platform ends and also start Diva locals that could help reduce the mishap numbers in this section," said Adesh Bhagat of Diva passenger association after he sent his observations to reduce fatal mishaps to the railways last year. "Areas beyond Thane have expanded rapidly in the last five years but the ratio of services hasn't matched it leading to massive crowding during peak hours. The authorities have failed to ensure any safety aspects as commuters are falling victim to mishaps. The platform height at Kalyan needs to be increased urgently," complained Shyam Ubale, a representative of the suburban railway passenger association beyond Kalyan. However, in terms of volume of railway accidents year after year, Thane section ranks as the third most dangerous zone on the entire Mumbai railway network after Kalyan and Kurla. Many passengers board crowded trains from Diva, Mumbra and Kalwa and travel on footboards, leading to instances of few falling off when the train starts moving Stay updated on the go with Times of India News App. Click here to download it for your device.RELATED From around the web Top 10 most anticipated action movies releasing in 2017CRITICSUNIONSave 2-year-old from rare form of cancer!Milaap10 people most affected by Modi's anti-black money crackdownCRITICSUNIONMore from The Times of India Thousands attend Mexican girl's party following viral inviteNew Zealand girl sexually assaultedin Varanasi, one nabbedPeddler caught with brown sugar in Nagaon From the WebMore From The Times of India Highest tax paying celebrities in BollywoodCRITICSUNIONYoung farmer with an uncommon cancer needs your helpMilaapTop 10 most anticipated action movies releasing in 2017CRITICSUNIONHelp Raj who was born with blocks in kidneysMilaap10 most anticipated bollywood movies of 2017CRITICSUNIONGovt to give financial help to pregnant women: PM ModiHighlights on November auto salesShivaji Satam: I want to retire as ACP - Times of IndiaListen to latest news in quick audio clipsWatch: Here’s how B-Town is prepping to welcome 2017!
