‘Petty’ issue leads to 30-yr-old man being shot at in GK pub

A 30-year-old man old was shot at inside the Rich Bratz 17 pub in south Delhi’s Greater Kailash area in the early hours of Sunday, after a fight over some petty issue.The accused was caught by the public and thrashed mercilessly.Initially, the police said that the altercation started in the parking lot. Later, however, they said the incident took place inside the club.Since the club was open beyond the permissible time limit of 1 am, the pub owner might lose the licence. The police officers found responsible for this will also face strict action.The incident took place around 3 am inside the Rich Bratz 17 pub in the upscale M block market in Greater Kailash.Vinay Bhati, 30, was partying with his friends at the pub, where Umesh alias Aditya Kumar was also present. A fight broke out between the two groups, following which Umesh whipped out a pistol and shot at Bhati.The bullet struck near Bhati’s collar bone. In the meantime, other people at the pub and locals caught hold of Umesh and started thrashing him. The police received a call regarding the incident at 3:48 am.”The victim did not give a clear reason behind the fight. When the police reached the location, Bhati had already been taken to hospital and Umesh, who was injured, was moved to the trauma centre. The weapon of offence was seized by the police. Umesh was arrested after his discharge from the hospital. A case of attempt to murder has been registered against him,” said Romil Baaniya, Deputy Commissioner of Police, South.After the police spoke to the victim in the morning, it was revealed that the incident took place inside the pub.The police have written to the licensing unit to cancel the pub’s licence stating that it allowed anti-social elements with weapons to come inside.On being questioned about the pub running beyond the allowed time limit, Baaniya said that a district-level inquiry is being conducted and necessary action will be taken during the course of investigation.Locals and several other visitors later claimed that fights often break out in the premises, which are generally hushed up by the club management, but also said that most clubs and pubs function beyond 1 am.The incident was reported at a time when the national capital is hosting hundreds of parties to celebrate the New Year.A major fire at a pub in central Mumbai, which claimed 14 lives, has also forced the police to remain extra cautious during this time of the year.LOOPHOLESThe pub was running beyond the permissible time limit of 1 am. Why did the local police not ensure that the pub was shut on time? The police initially stated that locals told them the incident took place in a parking lot but it was later revealed that it took place inside the pub. Why was the probe not carried out in the night? Why was the CCTV footage not checked to ascertain these claims?

The girl was allegedly raped by a minor boy in a village of Jarcha area of Greater Noida.Narrating the ordeal, the victim’s father said that the girl had gone to play outside the house.”It was getting late for lunch. So my wife went to call her but when she couldn’t find her, she immediately raised an alarm. After searching her for more than two hours, a neighbour found her coming out of a nearby house crying. She was bleeding from her private parts and even had blood stains on her clothes,” said the victim’s mother.Police have arrested the accused and he was sent to a juvenile home on Friday.”She told me that while she was playing, one of the neighbour took her along with him on the pretext of candies. He took her to his house and assaulted her. We immediately informed the police,” the father added.According to the police, the incident took place at around 4 pm when she had gone to play.”The girl has been sent for medical examination. The accused was later arrested. During interrogation, the 15-year-old boy confessed to the crime. The boy was produced before the district court and has been sent to the juvenile home,” said Suniti, Superintendent of Police (Rural), Gautam Budh Nagar.However, the family alleged that the police, along with the minor, had to roam around the district for more than 11 hours after which the medical examination was done at 3:30 am on Friday.”First, she was taken to a local hospital in Jarcha where she was denied medical aid due to staff shortage. Then, she was taken to a hospital in Dadri where she was again denied to be admitted because of no medical kit available. Then she was finally rushed to the district hospital in Noida where the officials denied the medical saying there was no female doctor to attend to the minor her and that she should come in the morning,” stated the father.”I have spoken to the CMO about the matter and he has assured me an enquiry in the case,” informed Suniti.

Yogi Adityanath announces Metro for Agra, Kanpur

Addressing his first public meeting on Monday, right after the inauguration of the Magenta Line of Metro in Noida, Uttar Pradesh chief minister Yogi Adityanath announced new Metro projects for Agra and Kanpur in the state.During the inauguration, Adityanath said: “I thank the PM for giving UP the offering of this new Metro line. We are going to bring Metro to Kanpur and Agra. The inauguration of the Magenta Line will prove to be a milestone towards realising the dream of development for Noida and Greater Noida. The PM has given a new meaning to politics of this nation. He is always telling us one thing: We have to move ahead on the path of development. We should ensure no citizen is unhappy. There is no question of discriminating against anyone.”He further said that the work to set up an airport at Jewar has also been expedited, which will be a boom for the people and will bring development to the district.”We have been planning two major expressways in the state. It is an achievement to have the Prime Minister in the state. He has given a new direction to politics and till even a single individual remains unhappy, we should make efforts to solve his problems,” Adityanath said during the meeting.Attacking the previous governments in the state, Adityanath claimed that under their rule, Noida, Greater Noida, and Yamuna Expressway region were only meant to make money. “My government is taking public welfare projects on a priority basis.

Realty check: Buyers are sinking in negative equity

More than two lakh property-buyers are facing ‘negative equity’ (when an asset’s value plunges below the outstanding balance on the loan used to purchase that asset) due to delayed home projects in the National Capital Region (NCR). To most of them, these units had been sold with the promised of ‘price protection’, but prices are dropping so fast that the value of the ‘dream home’ is now lesser than the loan.Nishant (38), had bought a flat in 2013 at Godavari in Mahagunpuram society in Ghaziabad, but is still awaiting possession. He is one among the hundreds of buyers who are waiting for their “dream home” from the last four years. The builder, Mahagun Group, has already collected 100 per cent of cost from him. His flat had cost about Rs 44 lakh, but is now worth just Rs 27 lakh due to price correction. Nishant told DNA: “It’s been more than four years that I am paying home loan EMI and rent every month. The builder had promised us that we would be offered possession by last year, but that did not happen.”DNA found that Mahagun had agreed to pay the buyers a penalty of Rs 10 per sq feet, but nothing has happened till date. To queries from DNA, the Mahagun management evaded response saying that “our directors are travelling right now.” Almost all prominent builders of Delhi-NCR – from Amrapali to Supertech to Mahagun – have hundreds of delayed projects.By November 2017, average NCR housing prices had declined by over 30%-50% from its 2012 peak. Negative equity on the property will is leading to huge financial stress on buyers.These buyers are already paying rent for living in an alternate accommodation in addition to the EMI for the undelivered homes.Banks are also facing the heat of negative equity and delayed projects. Buyers have started threatening to stop or hold the EMI of delayed projects. “It is requested that the delivery of my flat, complete in every respect as per the agreement, may kindly be ensured within a period of two (02) months, or else I will be constrained to stop/hold my EMIs of the home loan to the banks, as I can see that I am the only loser in this tripartite agreement,” a buyer wrote in a letter to a prominent bank, a copy of which is with DNA. He was allotted a flat in the Greater Noida project of Amrapali in 2012.”Ultimately, I have to see the parity of our asset value and the loan amount. If it were 10% then I would manage, but how could I service (the loan) if my undelivered property is valued 20 to 30 per cent less than the ongoing loan amount,” another Noida Extension home-buyer Akshay Sharma told DNA.The delay in delivery by the builders imposes numerous direct and indirect monetary costs on the buyers. Sanjay Sharma, MD of Qubrex realty exchange, said, “If delays take place, the costs also rise for the builder who then extracts the same from the buyers as increased saleable area, escalation costs, inferior specifications, delayed construction of common facilities, and any other charges that they can extract from the buyers even if it was not explicitly stated in the builder-buyer agreement”.A recent report of the real estate research firm Liases Foras revealed that almost 33 lakh families across 50 cities in India are suffering due to delays in housing projects. In Delhi-NCR 1,97,302 units are delayed for more than two years.Anuj Puri, chairman of Anarock Property Consultants, said that “assessment of average prices for the past five years (Q3 2012 to Q3 2017) reveals that Pune, Kolkata, Hyderabad and Bengaluru were the front-runners in capital value appreciation, bucking the trends of larger areas such as Mumbai Metropolitan Region and NCR”.Lose-lose propositionBy November 2017, average NCR housing prices had declined by over 30%-50% from its 2012 peak The delay in delivery by the builders imposes numerous direct and indirect monetary costs on the buyers

Controversial meat exporter Moin Qureshi gets bail in money laundering case

Controversial meat exporter Moin Qureshi was today granted bail by a Delhi court in a money laundering case.Special judge Arun Bharadwaj, who had reserved the order on Qureshi’s application on December 4, gave him the relief on a personal bond of Rs two lakh and a surety of a like amount.The Enforcement Directorate had earlier this month opposed the bail plea of Qureshi, saying he could hamper the ongoing investigation, after which the court had reserved its verdict.ED special counsel N K Matta had alleged that Qureshi, arrested on August 25, should not be granted the relief as the allegations levelled against him were grave and there were chances that he may flee from justice if enlarged on bail.In his bail application, the accused had told the court that no purpose would be served by keeping him in further custody. He had said that the probe in the case was over and he was not required further by the ED.Also readMoin Qureshi extorted more than Rs 5 crore from businessman Pardeep Koneru for ex-CBI chief A P SinghThe ED had earlier claimed in the court that “the witnesses have confirmed in their statements that they have delivered crores of rupees for Qureshi and his associates through his employees….”The agency had also alleged that Qureshi was involved in hawala transactions through Delhi-based hawala operators Parvez Ali of Turkman Gate and M/s South Delhi Money Changer (DAMINI) in Greater Kailash-1.Also readMoin Qureshi took help of a CBI director to extort Rs 5.7 crAccording to the agency, Qureshi was arrested under the provisions of the Prevention of Money Laundering Act (PMLA) a he was “not cooperating in the probe”.

Greater Noida teen killer kept in isolation at juvenile home

The 16-year-old boy who was arrested for killing his mother and sister at their Greater Noida residence has been kept under observation and in isolation at the juvenile home. A team of doctors, including psychologists, are keeping an eye on him to check for behavioural changes and to make sure that he does not develop suicidal tendencies.Talking to DNA, officials taking care of the teen said that during his first day in the juvenile home, he did not utter a single word. He has been kept separately so that he doesn’t get violent and attack other inmates.”A team of doctors and councillors is keeping an eye on him and trying their best to keep him out of depression,”the official said. According to the officials, the boy was remorseful and cried for some time after being brought to the observation home in Phase II of Noida.”He was accompanied by his father and relatives. They came around 6 pm on Saturday. He hugged his father and kept crying. Once we start seeing changes in him, we will move him with the other inmates,” said Nem Chand, Superintendent of the observation home.Meanwhile, the boy has gradually started talking to other inmates. “We have told other inmates to not discuss or ask him about the incident. He is getting better by the day. He is, however, ashamed of the act he committed. He is reading books by famous legends such as Mahatma Gandhi and Swami Vivekanand,” Chand said.On the first day, the boy was so tired that he went to sleep at 10 pm and woke up at 6 am. He seemed to be tired and depressed after traveling 2,511 km. “He eats egg and bread with milk in the morning, sabji, roti, dal-chawal, for lunch and sabji, roti, raita for dinner,” Chand added.After an examination by a psychologist, the next step would be his age determination. The juvenile house has 130 other inmates from five district — Gautam Budh Nagar, Ghaziabad, Shamli, Meerut, and Muzzafarnagar.On Tuesday night, the boy’s 42-year-old mother and 11-year-old sister were found murdered in their Greater Noida flat. His father was out of station for work when the incident took place.According to the CCTV footage accessed by a team of officials probing the case, deceased Anjali and the two children were last seen entering the society around 8 pm on the fateful night and the boy was seen leaving the building around 11.30 pm.

Western Railway move can promote solar energy in Mumbai: Experts

Even as experts on solar power cheered the move by Western Railways of going for solar rooftops by setting up solar panels on top of the platform sheds, they also said that this move could also end up becoming the biggest promotion for solar rooftops in Mumbai.”The solar rooftops at Lower Parel station are being viewed by lakhs of commuters daily and it will atleast provoke them to think or get more information about solar energy. Infact we would suggest that every station going for solar rooftop should display information on benefits of solar power,” said a senior official working with Government of India to promote solar rooftops.Infact officials as well as environmentalists who have been promoting solar energy said that despite so much awareness and having the facility of Net-metering’ ,which enables to send the unused or excess electricity generated by solar plant back into the grid of the energy supply and even earn credits still there was not much demand for solar rooftops and only very limited buildings or societies were coming forward.”There will have to be a policy making it mandatory for a building or a commercial space of a particular area and depending on their electricity usage pattern to compulsorily have solar rooftop installed and only then the rise in solar rooftops will see an increase,” said another solar expert working with a solar energy provider firm.Infact environmentalist Rishi Aggarwal who has been promoting solar rooftops said that it was strange that while Mumbaikars actively speak about reducing carbon footprints and search for means of reducing their electricity consumption yet there was not a sharp rise as expected in solar rooftops in the city. “BMC or the The Ministry of New and Renewable Energy (MNRE) needs to study what was the factor that was stopping people from going for solar rooftopsA study initiated in 2015 to assess the solar rooftop potential of Greater Mumbai had shown that Mumbai has a potential of generating 1720 megawatt (MW) of solar energy across rooftops including residences, educational institutions, government buildings and industry. Infact one of the key highlights of the study was that it provided a ready database of the solar capacity that can be generated on rooftops to BMC or any other Government organisation. The study listed out structures with good rooftop potential and it includes hospitals, commercial buildings, Government offices, railway stations and even industries. The rooftop solar generation was also presented wardwise.Unfortunately experts claim that BMC and government offices themselves are yet to go for solar rooftops despite being obligated to do so and those who have already done it were not bothered promoting it amongst those visiting these offices.WHAT IS NET-METERING:Under net-metering, customers who generate their own electricity using solar power can send the unused or excess electricity generated by their solar plant, back into the grid of the energy supply provider and even get compensated for it. However the compensation is not directally monetary but the energy provider simply reduces the units of power send to the grid, which helps reduce the energy costs. Net-metering was approved by the Maharashtra Electricity Regulatory Commission (MERC) in 2016

‘Criminal Game’ may have caused son to murder mum, sis

Believe it or not but a “game” may have been the reason for the deadly crime of mother and daughter. According to police officials, the mother-daughter duo in Greater Noida, were murdered due a real life “crime game” being played by their 16-year-old son, who remains to be at large and is the prime suspect in the case.Speaking to DNA, the father of the prime accused has revealed that the teenager who is suspected of killing his mother and sister was hooked to an online game called “High School Gangster” “as the game had different task like causing hurt or injuring someone.”He used to spend hours playing this game. I had started seeing a change in his attitude from quite a long time and his grades were also going down. In September, I had to take away his cell phone and had severely reprimanded him,” said Soumya Agarwal, the accused boy’s father.According to the police, the boy was hooked on to the game and could harm other people under the influence of the game. The content of the games are stated as ‘extremely violent’ as mentioned in the game information of the play store.He further stated that if his son is found to have committed the murder also, he should not be held guilty as he thinks that he would have been influenced by a game which he had been playing for quite a while time now rather the police should arrest the game developer and not his son.However, he alleged that the crime has been committed by some professionals and his 16-year-old son has been kidnapped. They said the family of six was a happy one and there were no problems.”The murders were well executed as the accused has not left any clue. It seems that the mother and daughter were sleeping when they were murdered,” Agarwal added.”This game highlights escaping high school! It’s not a romantic high school love story.”Sneak out of this HighSchool is a violent video game which highlights escaping high school! It’s not a romantic high school love story at all. It is like a prisoner who is looking to escape jail. There are security cameras to monitor every crime move, as he grab weapons to hit and kill security guards. Killing, robbing, stealing, destroying things is a part of this game’s highlights Killing, rubbing, stealing, destroying things is a part of this game.””The boy shared a strong bond with his mother and sister. The case is shrouded in mystery and those investigating the matter should focus on saving the boy’s life, who we believe is also under threat,” said Agarwal.CASE BACKGROUNDOn Tuesday night, a mother-daughter duo were found dead with multiple stab wounds on their bodies at their residence in the Gaur City area of Greater Noida.

Bhati roped in shooter Naresh and two others for this crime. Earlier, it was planned the BJP leader will be attacked on November 12 following which Yadav and Dharmdutt Sharma went to Thailand so that they would not be suspected for it. However, the plan failed as Shiv Kumar went for a trip to Nepal and Pilbhit,” added Kumar.CRIME SHEETThe main accused has been identified as Arun Yadav, who hired an informer Dhramdutt Sharma and Naresh Tewatia, an active sharp-shooter of Anil Bhati gang and committed the murders, police said.

Echoing the sentiment, other buyers said they have already given their money to the developer, and now the time has come to give their lives as well.”We have no other option left. We will fight against the politicians and the developers’ lobby till our last breath,” buyers said.As many as 8 FIRs were registered against the Amrapali builders on Saturday.

ALSO READ Mumbai building collapse: 22 people killed, 29 rescued; Maha CM Fadnavis promises action if negligence foundThe building also housed a play school but children had not arrived yet when the tragedy occurred.The building, mostly housing lower-middle class families, was located in the Muslim-dominated Pakmodia Street close to the J J Hospital.The building, which also had six godowns on the ground floor, crumbled at around 8:30 a.m. It is not clear yet if the heavy rains that inundated Mumbai this week weakened the building.What now remained of the 117-year-old structure was a large mound of concrete rubble and steel rods encircled by other houses including what appeared to be a tall building.Rescue workers in hard hats clambered up the mound and banged large concrete slabs with hammers to reach underneath and pull out survivors and bodies. Cranes and bulldozers were also deployed to scoop up the debris. Residents helped with bare hands.Maharashtra Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis visited the spot and announced a solatium of Rs five lakh each for the next of kin of the deceased. He also said that the entire medical expenses of those injured will be borne by the state government.”The exact number of trapped people cannot be known immediately,” deputy commissioner of police (Zone 1) Manoj Sharma said.”Our priority is to pull out at the earliest those trapped under the rubble of the dilapidated building,” said state Industries Minister Subhash Desai, who is also the guardian minister for Mumbai.”Once the rescue work gets over, the government will conduct a probe to ascertain the factors behind the building collapse. Strict action will be taken against those found guilty,” he told reporters.Revenue Minister Chandrakant Patil and a host of local politicians and corporators also visited the collapse site.The disaster management cell of the Municipal Corporation of Greater Mumbai (MCGM) received a call about the collapse at 8.40 a.m.The MCGM rushed its emergency rescue team followed by ambulances, dumpers and earth-movers to the spot. Soon, 90 personnel of the National Disaster Response Force (NDRF) also rushed to the spot.”We immediately rushed fire brigade personnel to the site to rescue the trapped people,” a senior MCGM official said.The rescue operation is being carried out by the NDRF team with the help of fire brigade personnel.The incident occurred two days after the city was pummelled by torrential rains, which may have caused damage to the building.Some residents claimed that about 40 people belonging to nine families lived in crammed rooms in the structure, which was declared “unsafe” by the Maharashtra Housing and Area Development Authority (MHADA).The Saifee Burhani Upliftment Trust (SBUT), which was to have undertaken redevelopment of the 117-year-old structure, said the building housed a total of 13 tenants — 12 residential and one commercial. “Of them, the trust had already shifted seven families in 2013-14,” it said in a statement.”MHADA notices dated March 28 and May 20, 2011, declaring the building dilapidated, were issued along with an offer of transit accommodation to the remaining tenants and occupants,” it said.This is the second major building collapse in the city in just over a month, after the crash of a residential complex in suburban Ghatkopar on July 25, which left 17 people dead.

NBW against Moin Qureshi aide

<!– /11440465/Dna_Article_Middle_300x250_BTF –>The Enforcement Directorate (ED) on Sunday secured a non-bailable arrest warrant (NBW) against Greater Kailash-based Hawala dealer Dharmendra Singh Anand, a close associate of controversial meat exporter Moin Qureshi, in the money laundering case registered against the later and his associates. The development comes a day after Qureshi was arrested and was produced in court that sentenced him to police custody till August 31. With non-bailable arrest warrant in hand, ED will now approach the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) with a formal plea to issue a Red Corner Notice (RCN) against Anand. The agency said they suspect that Anand is secretly staying in Thailand. According to a source, there is also a case against Anand in London and the accused is also on the list of wanted criminals of the British Police. “Soon after a case was registered against Anand, he fled and went into hiding,” said a source. The CBI has a special Interpol Wing to consider such a request and is the only Indian authority to issue all kinds of notices to catch criminals and terrorists at an international level. Explaining the procedure of issuing an RCN, a CBI officer said, “Once the ED puts a formal request before the CBI for an RCN against Anand, the case file will be reviewed. It will be decided what colour of notice needs to be issued against him as he is not a hardcore criminal or terrorist.” The process usually takes a day or two. “Once the decision is taken, CBI will request Interpol to issue the notice so that Anand could be arrested from any corner of the world and handed over to ED,” said the CBI officer.

Sunil Shitap caused G’kopar bdg collapse: report

<!– /11440465/Dna_Article_Middle_300x250_BTF –>In its report on the Sai Siddhi building collapse in Ghatkopar, submitted to civic chief Ajoy Mehta on Wednesday, a three-member committee has placed the blame squarely on local Shiv Sena strongman Sunil Shitap.The committee found that “it is beyond any doubt that unauthorized work carried out by Shitap at the ground floor is the trigger for collapse of this structure, and hence he is solely responsible for the loss of life and property in this building collapse.” The committee recommended that Shitap be prosecuted by the police and the Municipal Corporation of Greater Mumbai (MCGM).The committee was appointed to ascertain the cause of the collapse of the ground-plus-four storey building in Ghatkopar, and suggest a course of action to prevent such incidents in the future. Seventeen people were killed and 11 were injured in the incident that took place on July 25.The committee gave a clean chit to assistant municipal commissioner of N ward and two other civic officials who residents of the building claimed were in a nexus with Shitap. The committee did not find any documentary evidence against them.The committee, headed by Additional Municipal Commissioner Vijay Singhal, was formed on July 26 and was supposed to submit its report in 15 days. However it sought a 10-day extension on August 10, which was granted by the civic chief.The committee also includes Dy. Municipal Commissioner (Improvements) CD Chore and Director (ES&P) (i/c), Ch.Eng.(Roads &Traffic) VP Chithore.The committee observed that “Shitap had been acting extremely irresponsible, showing his disregard for the rules and regulations, and other fellow residents’ concerns.” Further, it found that “Shitap seemed to have indulged in unauthorized construction in N ward and S ward areas, and grabbing public land and constructing structures for monetary benefits.”The civic committee appointed M/s Structwel as structural consultant to investigate the reason for the collapse. Its report indicated that Shitap had carried out renovation work without adequate and scientific propping.The committee found that changes made to the building were were never checked either by the Building Proposal Department or the Assistant Engineer (Building &Factory) of N ward. Sai Siddhi was also not in the list of dilapidated buildings marked by BMC. However, two structural audits had suggested that it required immediate major repairs. One structural audit was carried out by a resident and another by Shitap. However, residents of the building disregarded the recommendations.According to committee report, according to the report they received from the assistant commissioner of N ward, no complaint in any form was made regarding any addition or alteration carried by Shitap. There were no complaints from any local public representatives, like corporators, either.

Only instant triple talaq is illegal. Other two kinds are also a challenge to gender justice and gender equality,” he said in a tweet.The former Union home minister said ‘triple talaq’ was a distortion of original Quranic legal principles and it was good that it has been declared unconstitutional by the apex court.”Majority judgment is a resounding affirmation of gender justice and of equality of spouses,” he said in another tweet.In a landmark verdict, the Supreme Court yesterday struck down the ‘talaq-e-biddat’ (triple talaq or instantaneous divorce) among Muslims.However, the court did not touch on the two other method of divorce – ‘talaq ahsan’ (single pronouncement followed by abstinence) and ‘talaq hasan’ (three pronouncements; 1 each in 3 successive months)

HC irked over lack of proper legal response from MCGM

Irked with this, the court said, “We are giving you one week by way of last chance to file your affidavits and pleadings. If by a week this is not done, then ask the civic body commissioner to appear before us.” “The corporation needs to improve its system. This is totally unjust. The corporation spends over Rs 120 crore on its legal department and this is the kind of legal assistance we get,” Justice Gavai said. Shantaram, in his petition, urged that the road o be widened from its original 20 feet to 40 feet, to cater to the needs of the area’s increasing population.

31 unauthorised structures near Haji Ali demolished: Maha govt

<!– /11440465/Dna_Article_Middle_300x250_BTF –>The Maharashtra government today told the Supreme Court that 31 unauthorised structures near the historic Haji Ali shrine in Mumbai have been removed, clearing around 332.89 square metres of encroached area. In an affidavit, it said six structures near the shrine were still to be demolished as the Bombay High Court had ordered status-quo in the matters concerning four such structures. Regarding the two remaining structures which had not been demolished yet, the state government said these were situated on lease land, but the collector had issued show cause notices to the original licensees asking them as to why the encroachments should not be removed. It also said that the process to get these structures removed was on. “Thirty-one unauthorised structures have been removed. The total encroached area of approximately 332.89 square metres has been cleared,” the state government told the apex court in the affidavit filed through advocate Nishant R Katneshwarkar. The affidavit was filed in pursuance to the July 28 directive of a bench, headed by Chief Justice J S Khehar, which had asked the Maharashtra government to apprise it within two weeks about the progress made by it in demolishing the encroachments near the shrine. The court had also asked the Haji Ali Dargah Trust (HADT) to seize the opportunity to beautify the shrine by offering help in removal of the encroachments. The apex court had earlier warned the state government of serious consequences if squatters from a 908-square metre area near the shrine were not removed in two weeks. It had said that the encroachments have to be removed within two weeks from July 3 from the 908-square metre area earmarked in the Bombay High Court order. The direction to a Mumbai civic body had come as the HADT, which had volunteered to remove the encroachments, had expressed inability in getting the encroachments evicted from an area of about 500 square metres. The HADT had on April 13 agreed to remove encroachments on its own by May 8 and was later given some more time to remove the squatters. The Haji Ali Dargah was constructed in 1431 in the memory of a wealthy Muslim merchant, Sayyed Peer Haji Ali Shah Bukhari, who gave up all his possessions before making a pilgrimage to Mecca. The high court had ordered the formation of a joint task force comprising the Municipal Corporation of Greater Mumbai and the collector to remove the illegal encroachments on the approach road leading to the dargah. The petition in the high court was filed by Sahayak, a socio-legal and educational forum, seeking immediate removal of the encroachments on the approach road to the dargah which was located on the sea. The Municipal Corporation of Greater Mumbai was of the view that the land on the approach road to the shrine fell in the collector’s jurisdiction and, therefore, the collector should remove the encroachments.(This article has not been edited by DNA’s editorial team and is auto-generated from an agency feed.)

Six arrested for violence at VIVO factory

<!– /11440465/Dna_Article_Middle_300x250_BTF –>Workers at VIVO factory turned violent on Tuesday evening when the company’s management sacked over 60 people workers without any prior notice in Ecotech-I in Greater Noida on Tuesday.Sources say that, over the last couple of months, the company has handed pink slips to an estimated 700 workers without prior notice.The incident took a violent turn on Tuesday, when one of the security guards of the company allegedly slapped one of the 60 retrenched workers and shooed him away when he asked about his wages and his job.Soon after the incident, workers gathered in numbers and staged a protest. They also broke windows of the building and cell phone assembly units in the factory.A clash between security guards and workers continued outside the company gates for about half an hour, before police took the situation in hand.

No one came forward to help ITO accident victim

<!– /11440465/Dna_Article_Middle_300x250_BTF –>It seems the Delhi Police’s appeals to the citizens to act as Good Samaritans have fallen on deaf ears. A 27-year-old juice vendor, Manoj, was hit by a speeding Audi car at ITO on Saturday. The impact of the collision was such that Manoj was thrown up in the air. He fell upon an iron fence erected on the divider. None of the passersby on the busy junction came forward to help even as the youth was impaled to death.Meanwhile, police detained the Audi owner on Monday evening and also recovered the car.Those who witnessed the brutal scene said even though Manoj’s abdomen was pierced open, he might have been saved with timely medical intervention. But no one touched him till the police arrived at the spot.The freak accident took place around 11 pm, while Manoj was crossing the main road in front of the Doll Museum at ITO. The speeding Audi was coming from the Delhi Gate side. Witnesses said the victim was flung about 20 feet up in the air and then he directly landed on the iron grill, which pierced his lower abdomen. The passersby simply stood around and watched him cry as he slowly succumbed to his critical injuries.Digani, the owner of the juice corner, where Manoj had been working for the last five years, said: “Manoj belonged to Bihar and used to sleep on the top of the juice corner along with another employee, who informed me about the accident. I live in Gandhi Nagar and I rushed to the spot as soon as I heard the news. The body was in a pathetic shape and the police had just arrived. It took them at least half an hour to pull the body out.”Manoj’s co-worker, who did not wish to be named, claimed that if he had been taken to a nearby hospital without any delay, he could have been saved. “No one came forward to help. The police claimed that he had died a long time back but they are not medical experts. Finally, they put him in a bag and took him to Maulana Azad Medical College, and from there, to the LNJP mortuary,” he said.The Audi owner, a Greater Kailash resident, however, could be nabbed because of a tip-off by a Good Samaritan only. A senior police officer said the car was traced after a man called up the police, when he came to know about the accident through news, and informed them about a damaged Audi.Initial questioning of the Audi owner revealed that he was driving himself at the time of accident. He owns a business at Ansari Road and was returning home. He had left his car near Anand Vihar before fleeing. All these facts, however, are yet to be ascertained, a senior police officer said.

Rape-murder of Delhi girl: SC asks CBI to conclude probe

<!– /11440465/Dna_Article_Middle_300x250_BTF –>The Supreme Court today directed the CBI to conclude its probe into the alleged murder and rape of a 22-year-old BA student-from Delhi on Yamuna Expressway in 2015. A bench headed by Justice Dipak Misra perused the status report filed by the CBI on the investigation done so far after it registered the FIR in compliance of an earlier order of the apex court. “The CBI has filed its status report in the case. It is directed that the CBI conclude the probe in accordance with the law,” the bench, also comprising Justices A M Khanwilkar and M M Shantanagoudar, said. The apex court refused to fix a time frame for concluding the investigation as demanded by the mother of the victim. “The agency is doing its job. There is no need to fix a time frame. Let the status report filed by the CBI be kept in sealed cover,” it said. The Supreme Court had in March directed the CBI to takeover the investigation and register the case. It had later directed the probe agency to file a status report on the investigation done so far. The victim’s mother has alleged that her daughter’s four friends, who were travelling in the car on August 1, 2015 along with her, remained unhurt. But, her daughter was hit so badly that she died in the hospital. She had alleged that her daughter had been murdered as she had injury on the left side of the face. She also demanded a probe alleging that her daughter was sexually assaulted. The incident had happened near Pari Chowk in Greater Noida and the SHO of the local police station had refused to file an FIR then. He had asked her to file a complaint in Delhi since she was a resident of the national capital. Delhi police later registered the case and started the probe.(This article has not been edited by DNA’s editorial team and is auto-generated from an agency feed.)

Water ATMs transform lives of villagers in Greater Noida

<!– /11440465/Dna_Article_Middle_300x250_BTF –>This nondescript village on the periphery of Greater Noida, is as rural as can be. Narrow lanes that come to a standstill every time a car passes by, fields are sown with crops of the season, idle kids engaging themselves in novel games, veiled women washing clothes by the community pond, this village looks like many others.But that is where the similarity with its counterparts ends. Ranhera is now busy scripting a unique story of its own, one that has a water station as the main protagonist.Installed by an enterprising villager who had seen his village falling victim to water borne diseases with alarming frequency, the Save Water Station is slowly changing the fortunes of Ranhera.Twenty eight-year-old Rahul Sharma brought this water station which provides clean, potable water to more than 250 families, in 2015, after he decided to do a homecoming from the neighbouring city of Faridabad, Haryana.After scouting around, he utilised the outer portion of his house to set up a clean water plant, with the help of an NGO, Safe Water Network, that has been setting up an independent station to provide clean drinking water in rural as well as urban areas.”I could not cope with city life and always longed to come back. I grew up drinking ground water which is contaminated with all sort of chemicals. It always nagged me that we should have access to pure water, and being a village should not be a hindrance,” he says Sharma as he checks on the plant. What started with a handful of people two years ago now has people drinking literally out of the water station’s hands. Regular awareness campaigns in schools, door to door visits on the benefits of potable water have a steady stream of around 1500 loyalists. Villagers can buy a 20 litre can of filtered water for Rs 6. In summers, the water station which is powered by solar energy also dispenses cold water, which is priced at Rs 10. It also caters to water distribution points or water ATMs in three nearby villages.The story does not end with a tumbler of safe water. The water station has also generated employment in the village that has farming as its primary source of income, giving jobs to “idle youths”. The station has employed around 15 people under various capacities like electrician, supplier to ATMs, driver and support staff, enabling each of them to earn between Rs 4000 to 5000 per month.Drinking clean water has also improved the overall health of the villagers, something Dr Sunder Sharma, village general practitioner will vouch for. “We have seen around 40 per cent dip in diarrhea cases, especially in children. Though there still are village folk who do not want to consume this water, but we are trying our best to make aware,” he states.Residents too are happy. Forty-year-old Sitara Devi agrees with Sharma as she talks about the massive turnaround “saaf paani” has done to her health. The woman who could not walk for a few metres because of joint pain, now claims to be “sprinting” since she started drinking this water.Sharma, who is listening to this conversation, however, feels that there is still a long way to go. “We have a population of around 10,000. The day I am able to bring in filtered water in every house will I feel to have accomplished something,” he says.

SC modifies order, protects Kinara mosque near Haji Ali shrine

<!– /11440465/Dna_Article_Middle_300x250_BTF –>The Supreme Court today modified its earlier order on encroachments near the Haji Ali Shrine in Mumbai and protected Kinara mosque located near the shrine from demolition. The court also asked the Maharashtra government to decide within a week the plea seeking regularisation of the mosque. A bench comprising Chief Justice J S Khehar and Justice DY Chandrachud took on record the consent of all parties including the Haji Ali Trust that if the state government rejects the regularisation plea, nobody will oppose the demolition of portions of the mosque which are built on encroached land near the historic shrine. The bench initially suggested that the parties should agree to shifting of the mosque to some other place. It has been alleged that certain part of the Kinara mosque falls under the encroached area which have been ordered to be cleared by the Bombay High Court. The Supreme Court has also upheld it. The bench has now fixed the matter after one week. The apex court had earlier given a last opportunity to the Maharashtra government and warned it of serious consequences if squatters from 908 square metre area near the historic shrine were not removed in two weeks. It had made it clear that the encroachments have to be removed within two weeks from July 3 from the 908 square metre area earmarked in the Bombay High Court order. The direction to the Mumbai civic body had come as the Haji Ali Dargah Trust (HADT), which had volunteered to remove the encroachments, had expressed inability in removing the encroachments from an area of about 500 square metres. The HADT had on April 13 agreed to remove encroachments on its own by May 8 and was later given some more time to remove the squatters. The trust’s offer to remove and demolish the encroachments had come after the apex court made it clear that only the mosque, located on an area of around 171 sq metres, would remain protected while the rest of the area, measuring 908 sq metres, has to be cleared of squatters. The court had lauded the efforts of the Dargah Trust in its attempts to remove encroachments. The Haji Ali Dargah was constructed in 1431 in the memory of a wealthy Muslim merchant, Sayyed Peer Haji Ali Shah Bukhari, who gave up all his possessions before making a pilgrimage to Mecca. The High Court had ordered the formation of a joint task force comprising the Municipal Corporation of Greater Mumbai and the Collector to remove the illegal encroachments on the approach road leading to the Haji Ali Dargah. The High Court was hearing a petition filed by Sahayak, a socio-legal and educational forum, seeking immediate removal of the encroachments on the approach road to the dargah which is located on the sea. The Municipal Corporation of Greater Mumbai was of the view that the land on the approach road to Haji Ali fell in the collector’s jurisdiction and therefore the collector should remove the encroachments.(This article has not been edited by DNA’s editorial team and is auto-generated from an agency feed.)
