party in the presence of
the Shiv Sena leader
Uddhav Thackeray at a
function held at Shanumkhanand Hall,
Sion, Mumbai.
Namdev Bhagat said,
“I was happy working
for the Congress party. I
worked for Congress for
around 27 years in Navi
Mumbai. I am not op-
posing or blaming in
any way the Congress
and members of the Congress party are not lend-

was undoubtedly a very
good party but in the

VASHI: In a classic
case of public alertness, a group of residents chased a thief
who had broken into a
house and caught him
red handed in the wee
hours of Friday.
The accused Bashir Ismail Mulla (55)
along with an associate
had broken into a resi-
dential apartment in
Gulmohur building in
Sector-9 Vashi. Some
residents happened to
be woken up by the
noise caused by the activities of the robbers.
They chased them and
managed to catch
Bashir Ismail Mulla
while his associate
managed to escape under the cover of dark-
ness. A search of Bashir’s person yielded a
cutting player and other instruments used in
house burglaries. The
captive was thrashed
before being handed
over to Vashi police. “A
search for Bashir’s associate has been
launched,” informed
API Sushilkumar
why I left the Congress
“I preferred Shiv
Sena party simply because it is a ground level party. I did not choose
Bharatiaya Janata Party because it is the National party. I am a
ground level man and I
want to work with the
ground level people.
Hence I thought it was
appropriate for me to join
the Shiv Sena and work
under the leadership of
Uddhav Thackeray for
the development of Navi
Mumbai,” said Bhagat.
Navi Mumbai District Congress Committee President Dashrath
Bhagat said, “Namdev
Bhagat’s resignation
from the Congress Party will make no difference to my party in Navi
Mumbai. That the
members and the leaders were not supporting
him is just an excuse
that Namdev Bhagat is
making because he
wanted some reason for
joining Shiv Sena. In
Navi Mumbai, the Congress party let him occupy many high posts and
positions and let him
enjoy many facilities.

Thieves rent a shop to conduct
a break-in at Jewelers

KAMOTHE: In a bewildering incident on

The “Dharma Raj
Jewelers” is located in
sector-11 of Kamothe
in Mahadev apartment buildings and is
owned by Sunil Chandalal Soni (24). A week
before, two men had
rented a shop adjacent
to the jewelry shop
and opened up a fruit
market at the place.
They had kept an eye
on all the shops in the
vicinity and had come
to know that the jewelry shop was weekly
closed on Fridays.
With this information,
the duo broke down the
wall of the shop when
it was closed on Friday
and looted 954gms of
gold and 14 kgs of silver by breaking down
the shop’s safe with a
gas cutter. As the store
was monitored with
CCTV cameras, the
duo smartly took off all
the cameras as well as
CDR leaving the police
clueless about their

are yet to identify the
burglars. From the investigation it is known
that the thieves had
rented the shop on Rs
25 thousand, intent on
stealing the jewelry
store besides it. Kamothe police have registered a complaint of
burglary against the
two accused.
Burglars rampant in Navi Mumbai
By Vikram Gaikwad
past few days, Navi
Mumbai has seen a series of house break in
cases. The burglars in
the city have become so
fearless in conducting
the crimes that the frequencies of burglaries
have increased significantly past few days. In
just two days Navi
Mumbai has accounted
to Rs 7 lakhs being stolen in burglary cases.
In one of such cases, a house in Ocean
view society in sec-12 of
Kharghar was burgled,
looting Rs 2.67lakhs of
homeowner Aliniyya
Fakkir Mohammad.
Just after the incident,
another house owner
from Chirner area of
Uran became the victim of house break-in.
The thieves broke-in
the house of Uran resident Vijay Bhukarlekar
and stole cash and valuable worth Rs 3 lakhs
in the wee hours of Friday.

Satsole murder mystery,
unraveled a step further
By Vikram Gaikwad
SATSOLE: The infamous unresolved murder case that has been
haunting Satsole residents for quite a while
has been disclosed further. The hair-raising
murder of a 21 year old
woman whose body was
discovered washed up
near the banks of Satsole creek on Palm
Beach road on January
has finally been identified by the police.
The deceased woman, now identified as
Nagmabanu Shahidali
Quereshi (21) was found
dead with her throat
cut and her face disfigured by acid, most probably to keep her identity hidden, on 3rd January. Therefore, Thane
police had been investigating the case in order
to identify the woman.
Meanwhile, the woman
relatives living in Bengawadi area of Govandi had filed a missing
persons report for Nagma in Devnar police
station as missing from
3rd January. Due to the
coincidence of the dates,
the relatives were sent
to Navi Mumbai in order to check the body,
where they identified
the dead body as being
Even though the
woman’s identity has
been disclosed, the reason for murder or the
culprit has not been
caught yet. The police,
however, strongly suspect the victim’s husband to be behind the

MUMBAI: It was a
day when the runnersup team of the last edition, Jaypee Punjab
Warriors and the newly formed outfit, Dabang Mumbai clashed
in their first match of
the 3rd edition of Hero
Hockey India League
2015 at the Mahindra
Hockey Stadium in
Mumbai on Friday.
The match witnessed
some high voltage
moves, thrilling moments and a nail biting
finish which left the
spectators wanting for
more from the star boy
Tom Boon and Legend
Jamie Dwyer. The 60
minute game shifted
gear with every goal
scored but was drawn
at the end at 3-3, as
both the teams did not
allow the other to
walk away with a win
in today’s electrifying
Dabang Mumbai
having the better say in
the first quarter, scored
the first goal in the
7th minute and which
came from the stick of
the young Harmanpreet Singh who successfully converted the
penalty corner that the
team got, leaving the
Warriors surprised. In
the entire first session
while Jaypee Punjab
Warriors created opportunities for themselves,
successfully managed
to keep the opponents
at bay and refrained
them from equalizing
till the end of the second quarter.
Japyee Punjab
Warriors however
started the third quarter with aggression and
drew parity through
Captain Jamie Dywer
who scored an unbelievable field goal in the
32nd minute. Half way
third quarter, Jamie
managed a good deflection towards the goal
post but was brilliantly saved by Mumbi
Dabang goalkeeper David
Harte . Coming into
play again the Dabang
Mumbai goalie saved
yet again in the very
next minute, giving
Jaypee Punjab Warriors a tough time to get
through him.
With the fourth
and final quarter set to
being the decider session for the game both
the teams came back
into the field with a determination to win. It
was finally Chinglensana Singh in the
50th minute went
through the defence of
Japyee Punjab Warriors and scored a field
goal. This allowed the
hosts to take the lead
and the game went in
their favor 2-1. This got
Jaypee Punjab Warriors on the backfoot
but they knew there
was still 10 minutes left
in the game and they
could still turn it

Need of positive agrarian outlook
India is home to the world’s largest number of farmers, as also the largest number of people who face
food insecurity. Hence a positive agrarian outlook is
In the recent days, India has emerged as a leading
exporter of agricultural products. This is owing to the
rise in public investment in agriculture, massive increase in credit flows and upgradation of rural infrastructure. India must promote sustainable practices
like organic farming, application of bio fertilizers and
bio pesticides. At the same time farmers should get
remunerative price for produce and consumers should
not be made to pay more to the retailer and also there
is need of amending Agricultural Produce Market
Committee act and increasing of cold storage facility
to reduce wastages.
Water management and ecosystem conservation is
essential for both environmental sustainability and
agricultural production. Rich farmers use inorganic
methods to grow crops in India while marginal farmers use organic methods. So they do not get the price
they are supposed to get. India is an exporter of foodgrain commodities. Since India is a very vast country,
campaign is needed for creating awareness among
farmers as well as other citizens about the need of
sustainable agriculture and enabling them to explore
the new agricultural methods.
Ordinary farmer should have access to standard and
cheap storage facilities so that he need not be at the
mercy of the market agencies at the time of a lucky
harvest. Now at the time of harvest, bulk buyers join
hands to reduce prices of the products which they later hoard for undue benefits and profits.
On the eve of every election, political parties cunningly grant some aids to the farmers which look like
peripherally an aid but end up in destroying our agricultural possibilities.
India has more natural resources and high manpower to achieve good agricultural growth. But yet
one of the biggest problems faced by farmers from
different parts of the country is sterility of good agriculture land due extensive use of chemical fertilizers
and pesticides. The government should look into this
matter and encourage farmers to use bio-fertilizers
and methods prescribed by agricultural universities
like organic farming.
Irradiation as developed by BARC more than 60
years ago was successfully done on onions, potatoes
and mangoes extensively. This method is not only safe
but improves resistance to pests, delays ripening and
other benefits. Why have we been sleeping on this
very vital research already done and proved successful?
The future depends on the introduction of new
methods for increasing productivity and quality as also
better storage facilities. The other technology should
also be impartially and scientifically assessed and
should not be rejected although they are developed
by foreign companies. If these BT products are safe
and improves the quality and productivity of the product with better resistance to pests etc these products
must be introduced to meet the increased demand.
We need better technology and no politics in such innovations.

and with 4 minutes left in the game
both the teams went on the attack.
With just a minute left for the
final whistle to blow, Jaypee Punjab
Warriors got the chance to take the
lead through a penalty corner opportunity. Sandeep Singh yet again he
did not commit any any mistake and
converted, helping the team to take
the lead to 3-2. Here it seemed Jaypee Punjab Warriors had the game
in their kitty but Dabang Mumbai’s
Chinglensana threw the surprise by
scoring a brilliant field goal in the
dying seconds and tied the match at
Speaking post the draw Head
Coach Valentin Altenburg said “It was
a huge finish by Chinglensana today
and we believe we can come back in
the next match. Both Harmanpreet
and Chinglensana played brilliant
games and David did a great job in
protecting our goal. I think Chinglensana realizes that he is so strong post
his goals today. We played against a
well built composed team and they
gave us a tough time. I was not satisfied as we did not do a great job in
protecting our circle and there were
many circle penetrations. The first
goal scored by JPW was a brilliant
goal and we also did a good job in not
allowing them the penalty corner conversions. For the game against Ranchi Rays we have to work on our
defence. Ranchi Rays is a strong
team and we really have to get our
defence together.”
Commenting on the draw, Head
Coach Barry Dancer, Jaypee Punjab
Warriors said “It was a good game
and the boys came back well. We
played well and they played well too.
Thankfully we played good in the
3rd and 4th quarter. Mumbai
team was good in the first half and
they were unlucky later on. We didn’t
control some of the better players of
the Mumbai team but we aim to be
better in our next game. They won

Accidents on...
Cont. from pg. 3
men fail to stop the train in spite of their applying
brakes the moment they spot the victim. At Vashi
railway tracks itself there has been a large number of deaths of commuters who were crossing the
tracks and even those who were hanging out of
the train and fell outside all of a sudden. Only a
few involved in such accidents managed to escape
death but they did sustain serious injuries.
Most of the railway accidents occur on VashiMankhurd, Juinagar-Nerul, Panvel-Khandeshwar, Belapur-Seawoods routes and hence the railways are trying to focus most of their attentions
along these routes particularly while creating precautionary measures to prevent such accidents.
These accidents occur in spite of the efforts put
in by railway officials to create awareness among
the railway commuters the dangers of crossing
tracks or hanging out of the railway trains. These
officials have even gone to the extent of pasting
posters and making regular announcements asking the commuters not to trespass or jump out of
moving trains. The problem is railways are not
staffed to the extent where they can supervise all
the tracks. Hence certain violations of laws by
the commuters escape their notice thus resulting
in accidents.

Letters to the Editor....
How can NMMC ignore such
a major problem?
During the last week or so there was flooding
on the road and it has entered the compound of
our building (Om Saidham Co Op Housing Society Ltd, Plot No. 40 Sector 17, Vashi, Navi Mumbai-400703). During the night, the nulla’s dirty
water reaches the road and then spreads from
Raymond showroom area to all the other roads.
It is acute around our building and enters in huge
quantity in our compound.
This phenomenon
started after expanding/
construction of the
storm water drainage
system a year ago or so,
which we had pointed
out but this problem
was continued to be ignored by Navi Mumbai
Municipal Corporation which did not care to take
Board Of Cricketing
Controversies In India
Board game is as good as over. All along, the
BCCI in the name of conducting gentleman’s game
of cricket did all the wrongs and still escaped punishment. Despite the team doing badly overseas,
the same players and the captain get preference
over other deserving candidates. Supreme Court
bowled a googly and a yorker at the same time,
barring BCCI chief-in-exile N Srinivasan from
contesting election to the board’s top post and
bringing the world’s richest cricket body under
the ambit of public scrutiny.
It directed the Board of Control for Cricket in
India to hold the election within six weeks after
restraining Srinivasan from the exercise as long
as he continued to own Indian Premier League
(IPL) team Chennai Super Kings because the dual
role pointed to a “conflict of interest”. The court
made it clear that conflict of interest arose because Srinivasan was the BCCI president, the
owner of Chennai Super Kings and the father-inlaw of Gurunath Meiyappan, who is facing charges of betting and spot-fixing in the sixth edition of
the IPL.
The ruling put an end to the free run the BCCI
enjoyed on the pretext of being a private entity.
The court called the board a public body discharging public functions because it is the official selector of the national cricket team. The BCCI would
be amenable to the writ jurisdiction of high courts
under Article 226 even when it was not ‘State’
within the meaning of Article 12 of the Constitution, the court added. This means, a common man
can drag the all-powerful BCCI to court for any
alleged misdeed. It could also come under the purview of the RTI act.
Unhappy with the BCCI’s opaque style of functioning, the court asked the panel to suggest measures to revamp it within six months, to streamline its election process and to bring institutional
integrity. The ruling came on a petition filed by
the Cricket Association of Bihar asking the court
to restrain Srinivasan from holding the BCCI
president’s post in the wake of the betting scandal involving his son-in-law.
Thus we can call BCCI, Board of Cricketing
Controversies in India and the name is well truly
maintained by the Presidents of the Board as a
well knit unit and now the truth is coming out in
the open.

any action in this direction. We are afraid that the
space around our building might get flooded like
There are technical problems and bad works
done by NMMC. On one side they warn residents
about water spillage that can be caused even by
washing vehicles. They warn that such water
might contain Dengue fever but they are not bothered about dirty nulla water entering all around
sector 17 area which is threatening the health of
the people. It looks like as if nobody from civic officials are bothered about this.
