Housing board moots extra area at lower cost

Tenants of dilapidated cessed buildings situated in South Mumbai should be allowed to buy up to 200 square feet of extra space at ‘construction cost’ from the developer redeveloping their building. This is one of the suggestions of the state government constituted a committee on housing. Currently, a tenant is entitled to get 300 sq ft house following redevelopment. If accepted the new rule may reduce the differences between tenants and developers and will also allow tenants with bigger families to stay together. There are more than 14,000 such dilapidated cessed buildings located in South Mumbai. These buildings pay a cess to MHADA for their repair. Many projects in the area are stuck either because of the tenants’ refusal to vacate their houses or when the developer delays a certain project. While the suggestion sounds good, architects who plan the building say that the tenant should at the time of planning of the building inform the developer about the extra space. “While giving extra space at construction cost wouldn’t be feasible for a developer but it can bring in liquid at initial stage to the developer, which will be of help to him in carrying out construction,” said Arqam Shaikh, of Arc associates.

Gujarat Elections 2017 | BJP campaigns seek to mobilise Muslim women voters

In an attempt to make the Muslim women living in slum pockets aware of ‘vikas’, the Bharatiya Janta Party (BJP) has initiated a door-to-door campaign. THeir aim is to convince them to vote for the party. Interestingly, the campaign has been very strategically planned as the women BJP representatives have chosen afternoons for the same.Shehnaz Shaikh, General Body Behrampura ward Mahamantri, who has been working with the BJP for 15 years, has been instrumental in reaching out to several areas this election.”Women are free during afternoons as their husbands and children are out. Hence, we chose the afternoon to visit them. We spend around 20 minutes to an hour with them, depending on the issues and understanding capacity of the women. These are mostly uneducated women hence it is very important for us to reach out to them, explain about the work being done by BJP and eventually convince them to vote independently without being under any pressure.”Shehnaz, along with another 4 women, has covered households such as Calico Tekra, Nandas ki chaali, Bombay Hotel, Jamalpur, Khodiyanagar no Tekro, Behrampura, etc. During the visit, the team talks about ‘Vikas’ in their area.Water was a major issue for most of the women in Behrampura. Another lady who stitches clothes at home, Mehrnaz Devda said, “Water was a big issue in our area but thankfully now the problem has been resolved. Even our basti did not have a path with stones. It was a kaccha rasta, but now a stone path has been laid. However, the area still lacks a good school. There are so many children but we are forced to send our kids to a nearby school run by AMC. The education is not good there. So we immediately need a good school and recreational space for kids.”Rehanna Shaikh, who lives in a basti in Behrampura said, “We did not have a gas pipeline until now. Now, we have recently got the connection. Women feel safe, I do not know if it is the fear of cops or in general fear.” Nearly 500 Muslims, including women, had recently joined the BJP at a function organised by Jamalpur-Khadia MLA Bhushan Bhatt in Danilimda. Cleanliness was something that impressed Faheeda Pathan, a housewife and resident of Behrampura. She said, “Behrampura was one of the dirtiest areas. The dustbins were never cleaned for days. Now, we can see the change. The only thing that is needed is more big leaders.”Elaborating more on the campaign, Mohammad Farooq Qureshi, President, BJP Laghumati Morcha said, “We are targeting the Muslim women and making a group of five to convince furthermore to vote for BJP.”

I then locked the place. Only after chief officer gave in writing who was blocking the work was the lock opened,” said Ansari.”Tomorrow if someone was to burn down all the papers, there is not enough security to even prevent that. The board members have filed cases against each other and there is no work that happens. There was no one in the office to do anyone’s work. The superintendent said he will come but he did not,” said Ansari.He then demanded that the board be dissolved. “Since they do not work, the board should be dissolved and an administrator be appointed,” said Ansari. Ansari was flanked by Maulan Moin Ashraf under whose leadership the Tehreek is looking to register Waqf properties.Habib Fakih, member of the board said, “All board members were against the chairperson. The security is adequate. Though Shabbir Ansari has done good work for OBC in the community, he committed an illegal act.”BOARD MATTERSMM Shaikh, the chairperson of the board, tendered his resignation. A vote of no-confidence was to decide his fate. “He has resigned and as per Waqf Act new election of new chairperson will take place,” said Shyam Tagde, principal secretary of minorities development.

After conducting a preliminary inquiry, the names of a few politicians and builders have cropped up. We appeal to victims of this group to approach the police.” He, however, refused to elaborate on the suspected role of politicians and builders in the racket.Singh said the possibility of applying the stringent Maharashtra Control of Organised Crime Act (MCOCA) was also being examined. “We have detained three more persons, including a drug peddler, who were with Kaskar when we picked him up from Nagpada.

Almost 50 vehicles and 60 policemen barged into Kaskar’s house. Why did they use so much force? They have not found even a single pin or knife in the house,” he told the court.

I have written several times to police and civic body to not allow hawkers on the streets, but they failed to take any action. This is the reason that I decided to take matters into my own hands so that the hawkers learn a lesson and do not come back and cook food.”CASE UPDATEJuhu police have booked hawkers for using gas cylinders.

Verdict will pass on tremors to accused who are absconding: CBI prosecutor Salvi

<!– /11440465/Dna_Article_Middle_300x250_BTF –>Deepak Salvi, the special prosecutor for the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI), was a partially-satisfied man on Thursday, after a special court awarded life sentence to Abu Salem and one other, death for two others, and 10 years imprisonment to a third accused in the 1993 bomb blasts case.When asked if the agency was content with the death penalty for two accused, Salve said he was as his efforts yielded results but that he wanted to see the reasons why Karimullah Shaikh, for whom the prosecution had sought death penalty, was awarded only life.The punishment, he said, will set an example for the other accused who are at large. “It will definitely pass on the tremors,” Salvi said. The prosecution has held that the case is not over as it is yet to arrest the masterminds and others who are absconding.”The entire matter was a herculean task, which was accomplished by the prosecution and the court as we had to examine evidence which ran to more than 150,000 pages,” he told DNA. “The prosecution had to go through a lot of legal hassles in order to get justice to the accused as well as society at large.”Speaking about his efforts which he had put in the case, Salvi said “The main hurdle was the fact that evidence in the part A of the case was already completed where accused like Sanjay Dutt and others were already convicted by the court and the trial in part B had initiated post the judgment of part A. The only evidence with the prosecution was the evidence of the witnesses who were examined in part A.””I (had) argued that the Supreme Court has the right to turn the law if the court has to keep a balance of justice, and the court accepted our plea; that was the point where the journey of victory for the prosecution started,” Salvi said.

Pay Rs 1 lakh to custodial death victim’s kin: MSHRC to DGP

<!– /11440465/Dna_Article_Middle_300x250_BTF –>The Maharashtra State Human Rights Commission (MSHRC) today directed the state Director General of Police (DGP) to pay Rs one lakh to the family of 2012 custodial death case victim. “The SHRC bench headed by Chairperson Justice S R Bannurmath today gave its recommendation to the DGP asking him to pay Rs one lakh to the victim’s family within six weeks,” said special CBI counsel B P Raju said. Raju said that the commission had taken suo-motu cognisance of the case after several newspapers published the reports. The victim, Zulfar Shaikh, an accused in counterfeit currency case, had been arrested on November 29, 2012. However, he died in police custody three days later. The case was initially being investigated by Mumbai police, but was later handed over to the state CID. In 2014, the Bombay High Court handed over the probe to the CBI after Zulfar’s cousin moved the court. Another accused, Inamul, who was arrested along with Zulfar told the police that the latter was hung by his hands and was beaten with a cricket bat. Recently, the CBI had filed a charge sheet against assistant police inspector Irfan Shaikh and constable Chandrakant Shirkar of Dharavi police station before the magistrate’s court and charged them under culpable homicide not amounting to murder.(This article has not been edited by DNA’s editorial team and is auto-generated from an agency feed.)

Indrani asked inmates to seek legal, media access: official

<!– /11440465/Dna_Article_Middle_300x250_BTF –>Sheena Bora murder case accused Indrani Mukerjea, lodged in Byculla jail here, `instigated’ inmates to stage a protest to seek legal and media access inside the prison after the death of a woman convict, a prison official claimed today. Indrani has been named as an accused in a case of rioting and unlawful assembly inside the jail along with Divya Pahuja, an accused in Haryana gangster Sandeep Gadholi encounter case, and others. Indrani and Divya were behind the protest inside the jail, the official claimed. Manju Shette, a woman inmate, was allegedly beaten up on June 23 by jail staff for failing to account for two eggs and five ‘paav’ (bread loaves) meant for distribution to inmates as she was assisting jail staff as a warden. After Manju’s death, Indrani, Divya and other inmates including Shahnaz Maniyar, Vaishali Mudle, Hasina Shaikh, Mariam Shaikh and around 200 others began a protest on June 24 for their demands, which included making available a lawyer and allowing media access inside the jail, police said. On June 26 Indrani complained of body pain and was taken to hospital, the prison official said. There was nothing abnormal in her medical reports and she was sent back after being given some tablets, he said. Manju, sentenced to 14 years’ rigorous imprisonment in a murder case, had served around 13 years. She had requested jail authorities to shift her to Kalyan prison in adjoining Thane district, the official added. The special CBI court today allowed Indrani to approach the police to lodge her complaint that she was beaten up and threatened of sexual assault by jail officials for joining the protest over Shette’s death. Indrani told the court that she was threatened and assaulted after she said that she would give a statement in connection with Shette’s death.(This article has not been edited by DNA’s editorial team and is auto-generated from an agency feed.)

<!– /11440465/Dna_Article_Middle_300x250_BTF –>With an aim to educate girls in their community, few teenagers from Naya Nagar, Mahim have chosen the tech way and developed an app named ‘Padhai’. Roshani Shaikh, 17, is one of the 200 children who are part of Dharavi Diary, a NGO in Naya Nagar, which helps slum girls to learn through new technology.“Many girls in my area have dropped out of school mainly due to lack of interest or because few parents refuse to send them to schools. Through Dharavi Diary’s initiative, we learned the basics of how to use a computer and make apps,” said Shaikh.The girls also participate in various TEDx platforms to share their inspirational stories. Speaking about the app, Shaikh, said, “Along with designing other apps, few years ago, my team created the Padhai app. Through the app one can learn the basics of Hindi, English and Maths just by sitting at home.”– &TV’s latest offering `Paramavatar Shri Krishna’ will trace the journey of a 4-year-old Kanha, an agent of change, who came to be worshiped as Lord Krishna.

An app to facilitate help for addicts

<!– /11440465/Dna_Article_Middle_300x250_BTF –>Two researchers in the city have developed a mobile application which will act as a facilitator between addicts and help-centres. The app which has received the support of Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) will be launched by end of this month. Creators of the app Ajaz Shaikh & Khevna Banerjee are developing the app with a seed funding of Rs50,000. While Ajaz and Khevna have been active members of NCB’s healthy campus drive, Ajaz has been dealing independently with addicts across the city. The app ‘Bye Bye Addiction’ will cover various topics to create awareness amongst people, such as providing information about different kinds of addiction, their prevention and counselling centres. “The idea was to connect addicts with people who can help them,” said Ajaz, adding, “We have approached counselling centres run by the government and once addicts they get in touch via our app, we will connect them with counsellors. We have roped in four psychiatrists who are willing to provide post treatment counseling – an important component in rehabilitation which is missing these days. NCB is likely to provide us a space for this.”He added “We have widened the purview of addictions for our app, because we can see a major rise in porn and gambling addicts. These new areas need serious attention.” Hariom Gandhi, zonal director of NCB, said, “This application will fill a gap in the current circuit. I wish them good luck.”

Soon, all bldgs may have a car wash

<!– /11440465/Dna_Article_Middle_300x250_BTF –>There is a possibility that every builder, while constructing a building, will now have to make space for a car wash in the plans.Failing to do so may lead to the builder being denied permission, by the BMC, to construct the building at all.On June 20, BMC will discuss a proposal that suggests every building should have a car wash facility available, fitted with a proper system so that contaminated water thus created reaches the sewage line.The proposal has been mooted by Samajwadi party group leader in the BMC, Rais Shaikh. It reads, “incorporating in plan disapproval notice (IOD) the condition of keeping one place reserved for washing vehicles, while giving permission for constructing new building.”The proposal further makes a mention of a separate arrangement for flow of contaminated water to sewage lines.When contacted, Shaikh confirmed the same and said, “In high rises, everyone has one or two vehicles and most of them wash it within the compound. This water weakens the building structure, which is bad for all residents. Hence, a separate place is to be demarcated and vehicles are to be washed using only non-potable water.”According to Shaikh, many buildings and cities in foreign countries follow the same and it should be implemented here as well.However, builders have only one concern, that they are bound to give a parking space to every home buyer for free, and now this will take up additional space. “This is a good move, but the question is — where is the space? Space is already a constraint, and this will further add to it. But if this is made mandatory, then we will have no option but to follow it,” said a builder, wishing not to be named.Meanwhile, Shaikh has also proposed that the BMC, after scoring low on the Swachh Bharat parameter, should start ranking all its 24 wards so that they remain clean so that Mumbai performs better….& ANALYSISWashing vehicles on the roads, or using potable water for the same is not allowed.
The reasoning behind the new proposal Shaikh suggests is that it is meant to keep the building structure safe as excess water damages it.
Since contaminated water remains in the compound causing other problems like weakening of the builidng structure, the new rules will help dispose of it properly.

Defamation case against scribe for denting police image

<!– /11440465/Dna_Article_Middle_300x250_BTF –>The police have filed a criminal defamation case against a Latur scribe for allegedly showing the cops in a poor light after the chopper mishap involving Maharashtra Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis in Nilanga. The report written by the scribe and published in a regional daily had said while police officials ran away after the chopper crash, fearing that it would explode, a local scrap dealer identified as Irfan Shaikh rushed to the spot shouting “Our king is trapped in the chopper” and rescued the chief minister, said the official. Fadnavis and five others had a narrow escape after their helicopter crash landed just after taking off during his Latur tour on May 25. The journalist, instead of appreciating the evidence in the form of videos and photographs which clearly show police running to the rescue of CM, published a report which was false and defamatory, said an official. “We have registered a defamation case against the journalist for maligning the image of police. The case has been filed under section 500 (criminal defamation) of the IPC and our investigations are on,” Deputy Superintendent of Police, Latur, G G Ranjankar told(This article has not been edited by DNA’s editorial team and is auto-generated from an agency feed.)

Now, adults pay more to visit Byculla zoo

<!– /11440465/Dna_Article_Middle_300x250_BTF –>Amid chaos, the civic standing committee of Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) cleared a proposal for hike in the entry charge to Byculla Zoo on Friday with an amendment in the proposal. The amendment proposal was mooted by Yashwant Jadhav, leader of House during the meeting for entry charge to the zoo by 50 per cent. According to Jadhav, the entry charge for an adult will be brought down to Rs 50 from the proposed Rs 100, which was accepted. However, there have been no changes for entry fee of families or people visiting the zoo for morning walks.The BJP and Samajwadi Party, however, boycotted the meeting as they sought a discussion on the matter. BJP group leader Manoj Kotak said, “We are not opposing the proposal but the entry charge should be increased only after development of zoo is completed,” adding there must be clarity on why the entry charge is being hiked and what kind of facilities visitors will get. He further said, “The entry charge should not be hiked in order to restrict number of visitors to the zoo.”Raees Shaikh, however, refuted Jadhav’s claim stating that no such proposal was tabled in the group leader meet held in April. “The matter was brought up administration as a general discussion and everyone shared their views and this cannot be taken as their stand,” Shaikh said.AnalysisPenguins have given a new lease of life to Byculla Zoo. While the hike in entry charge may be a subject of discussion for political parties, the renovated zoo has attracted many visitors. Since Mumbaikars will have to shell out more money to visit the zoo, they can expect more animal enclosures.

Court sends ISIS men to jail for 7-yr in terror case

<!– /11440465/Dna_Article_Middle_300x250_BTF –>Special court today awarded seven-year jail term to two men after they pleaded guilty of criminally conspiring to raise funds and recruiting people for the terror outfit ISIS. District judge Amar Nath convicted accused Azhar-ul- Islam (24) from Jammu and Kashmir and Mohammed Farhan Shaikh (25) from Maharashtra, following their U-turn more than a month after the court framed charges against them. The accused had moved an application through advocate M S Khan saying they “are remorseful of the acts alleged against them. There is no prior criminal record against them and they want to join the mainstream and want to be productive for the society and want to rehabilitate themselves”. “The applicants are pleading guilty without any pressure, threat, coercion or undue influence,” the plea had said. The court had last month framed charges against both the accused and 36-year-old Adnan Hassan for allegedly hatching a criminal conspiracy to raise funds for the ISIS and recruiting people for the terror outfit. The trial against Hassan is continuing separately before the same court. The court had framed the charges for alleged offences of criminal conspiracy under the IPC) and under provisions of the Unlawful Activities Prevention Act (UAPA). The National Investigation Agency (NIA) had registered a case against the three accused on January 28 last year. They were arrested the next day on arrival here from Abu Dhabi. According to the probe agency, Hassan and Shaikh had been frequently visiting the UAE in connection with jobs since 2008 and 2012 respectively, while Islam had gone to join them in the UAE in July, 2015. Hassan was earlier allegedly affiliated to the Indian Mujahideen and later got inclined towards ISIS, it alleged. The charge sheet filed by NIA had claimed that the accused persons, in connivance with other known and unknown associates, had hatched a criminal conspiracy to propagate the ideology, recruit persons, raise funds and facilitate the travel of those recruited to Syria to join the ISIS and further its activities. The final report said that in furtherance of the conspiracy, the accused had created multiple email IDs, used multiple mobile numbers obtained from their associates from different countries, formed various online forums and groups on Facebook, WhatsApp, Kik, VKontakte, Viber and Skype, using the internet and invited and associated like-minded persons, residents of different countries. “The accused had formed a terrorist gang and acted as a frontal group of the ISIS and incited, motivated, invited and facilitated people of different nationalities to leave their respective countries and travel to Syria to join, support and further activities of the ISIS,” it alleged. The agency said the accused persons were actively involved in perpetuating, promoting and propagating ideologies and terrorist activities of the ISIS. “They had voluntarily advocated and professed to be the supporters and members of the ISIS and actively supported, invited support from others, propagated and promoted unlawful activities and terrorist activities of the ISIS by exhorting, inciting, luring and influencing others to become members of this organisation by disseminating incriminating contents including sharing comments, pages, videos, images, literature and openly endorsing, justifying and glorifying the terrorist acts of the ISIS,” the NIA had claimed. “They had also raised, collected and received funds in the UAE and transferred it to their associates in India, the Philippines and Tunisia to facilitate their travel to Syria to join ISIS,” the agency said.(This article has not been edited by DNA’s editorial team and is auto-generated from an agency feed.)

Expedite process to install VC facility in courts: HC to govt

<!– /11440465/Dna_Article_Middle_300x250_BTF –>The Bombay High Court has expressed displeasure over Maharashtra government’s failure to complete the process of installing video conference (VC) facility in all courts across the state. In December 2016, a division bench headed by Justice V M Kanade had directed the state Home department to ensure that all courts in the state have video conference facility by March this year. However, earlier this week, the high court was informed that since the last hearing (December 2016), the government has not taken any steps towards complying with the court order. “No progress has been made since our last order on December 6. From the date of the previous order till date not a single court has been installed with video conference facility,” Justice Kanade said. “We direct the Home department of the state government to expedite the process of installing video conference facilities in all courts. We know it will take time but it seems like it won’t happen without our constant supervision,” the court said, posting the matter for further hearing after four weeks. The directions were passed while hearing a public interest litigation filed by one Shaikh Abdul Naeem, an accused in the Aurangabad arms haul case, claiming that he is not being produced in court due to lack of escort police. On the last hearing, the court was informed by the high court administration that out of 2,200 courts in the state, video conference facilities have not been installed in 248 courts due to certain difficulties which have been brought to the notice of the state government. Advocate S R Nargolkar, appearing for the HC administration, said all other courts in the state have video conference facilities and accused persons can be produced before the court from jail on video conference. Out of 248 courts, some are in Mumbai, Yavatmal and Wardha.(This article has not been edited by DNA’s editorial team and is auto-generated from an agency feed.)

BMC election 2017: Muslim vote gets heavily splintered

<!– /11440465/Dna_Article_Middle_300x250_BTF –>Standing in one of the congested lanes that makes up the Muslim heartland of Madanpura in Central Mumbai, Zakir Ansari (name changed) is perturbed. “I have never seen such money being thrown around. Candidates are distributing free meals for a month. Still, voters’ disillusionment about the system is scary. The real issues around which a civic election should be fought on like roads, water and quality of education are missing from public discourse. It’s all about emotion-mongering,” said Ansari, while mirroring the sentiments of many from the community. Community elders said while newer entrants like the All India Majlis-E-Ittehadul Muslimeen (AIMIM) led by the firebrand Owaisi brothers from Hyderabad have managed to shake the influence of parties like the Congress and the Samajwadi Party (SP), the cynicism among voters, especially the young, about the political system was rising. Wadala resident Muhammed Feroz Shaikh noted that mainstream political parties had failed to tap the aspirational vote in young Muslims, who seek upward mobility and have different frames of references than their peers. “Partly, the community is to be blamed for this state of affairs. They must not allow themselves to be used and vote only after giving a good thought,” he said, adding that it was necessary for the political discourse to move around issues like education and employment.“There is disillusionment with the Congress and NCP,” noted Shabbir Ansari of the influential All India Muslim OBC Organisation, adding that while the Muslim youth was veering towards the AIMIM, its image had taken a hit as it had nominated candidates, including defectors, based on “elective merit.” “Contrary to perception, the Muslim vote is not homegenous and the community is divided across political lines,” said Ansari, adding that the assertion by Hindutva hotheads after the BJP’s rise to power in the Centre and the state had led to unease in the already marginalised community. “Since Muslims feel let down by most political parties, they may choose candidates who they think may work for them,” he opined. However, the AIMIM’s presence seemed to have made a marginal impact on voters in Muslim pockets in the island city though it could eat into the votes of other parties in wards like 223 (Imamwada-Dongri), 213 (Kamathipura-Sidharth Nagar), 211 (Madanpura), and 212 (Agripada).”We do not identify with their (AIMIM) identity politics. We want someone who will work here,” said Umerkhadi resident Raza Syed. Muslims in general stated that though “no one does much work”, still the vote was for someone who will work and be around. However, some in the ward said that AIMIM was a number of votes. Muslims in different wards stated that they wanted someone who will take care of issues like cleanliness, water, traffic, parking, house gullies, redevelopment and traffic. “In our ward, house gully is an issue besides traffic and parking,” said Kamathipura’s Anees Khan. He, like many others, said that the fight there was between Congress and Samajwadi Party for Muslim votes and speculated that the seat may go to someone else due to a vote split. “AIMIM nominated someone who was not a party worker. The Congress candidate is not known much and was a light name,” said Naseem Syed. However, some like Abdul Qadir Ansari said, “We have tried a new name because we feel that the old ones will be more prone to corrupt practices and will garner less votes,” hinting at the preference for AIMIM. The fight in Madanpura may tilt towards Samajwadi Party’s Raees Shaikh. “Cycle seems to be the preference here,” said Syed Zaffar Abbas, resident of Madanpura. However, some like Nafees Ansari said, “The fight here is actually three-way.” Some voters, however, said AIMIM was getting a large number of votes. In ward 212, voters said that the fight was between Geeta Gawli and Congress over other parties. “Out here, the vote is for redevelopment issue and since a Muslim community member has been given ticket who is identified by Muslims here, the contest is between the two,” said a voter. “At some level, there is a disillusionment with mainstream politics. Most politicians are interested in feathering their own politics, some do this blatantly, some in an insidious manner,” noted Kashif, a Vikhroli resident, adding that hence, Muslims were forced to choose the lesser evil. “The community has been used for its votes for long… without basic issues being addressed.
