Aashwin Shanker, Mumbai Uncensored. 26th June 2021:
The Enforcement Directorate (ED) on Saturday (26 June) captured two assistants of former Maharashtra Home Minister Anil Deshmukh regarding a claimed ‘hafta’ case, authorities said here.
They are Kundan Shinde and Sanjeev Palande functioning as close to home staff members with Deshmukh, a senior leader of the NCP – Nationalist Congress Party.
ED officials said the two aides of Deshmukh were not cooperating with probing officers. The aides were quizzed for around nine hours at ED’s Ballard Estate office in Mumbai. Next, the two will be produced at a special PMLA court in Mumbai later on Saturday. Reports suggest that ED will seek custody of Deshmukh’s aides for custodial interrogation. Earlier, ED raided offices of the two men & also of Deshmukh’s in Mumbai, Nagpur. Around eight officials reached Deshmukh’s place at 7.30pm along with a CRPF team. No one was allowed to enter the house & search continued till filing of the report.
Suspected transactions worth Rs 20 crore, allegedly routed through a clutch of Kolkata-based shell companies, are at the centre of a probe by investigative agencies against former Maharashtra home minister Anil Deshmukh.
These companies are mostly linked to Deshmukh’s relatives and associates, they said. The source of these funds is believed to be ‘protection money’ paid to Deshmukh, including around Rs 4 crores ‘paid’ by bar owners in Mumbai.
Deshmukh and his associates are under the scanner of the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) and the Directorate of Enforcement (ED). On Friday, the ED carried out searches at multiple locations, including Deshmukh’s residence at GPO Chowk in Nagpur.
Real Estate Developer Pentagon Premises illegally chops down trees in Andheri West
In a shocking revelation, it has come to light that real estate developer Pentagon Premises Pvt. Ltd. has been illegally chopped trees on a private plot being developed by their company in Andheri West.
According to reports, the company had acquired a large sized redevelopment project at a prime location of the city and had started construction of a residential complex. However, the land that the company had acquired had several trees, where any kind of illegal tree cutting was strictly prohibited, as per Government Norms.
Our News Reporter asked the company’s representatives present on the construction site regarding a permission letter with the following details: The trees’ species, size (height and girth), the number of trees to be trimmed, the number of branches on the trees to be cut, their size, location, the date when the permission was given, reason for trimming. On asking the same, the representatives of Pentagon Premises Pvt. Ltd. had no information on the same.
We also asked them to produce a Permission Letter, incase trees are being fully cut, including details of: The tree’s species, size (height and girth), location, the date when the permission was given, reason for cutting along with a mention if the tree has to be transplanted at another location. On asking the same, the representatives of Pentagon Premises Pvt. Ltd. had no information on the same.
Despite producing the required legal documents to the journalist covering this illegal activity, the company went ahead and continued cutting down trees on the land. The illegal activity was brought to the attention of Mumbai Uncensored’s journalists by concerned citizens who had noticed the activity.
Upon investigation, it was found that the company had cut down several trees, many of which were of significant age and size. The illegal activity had caused a significant impact on the local ecosystem, affecting the habitat of several species of animals and birds.
The local authorities have no idea about this activity. We have asked Mr. Ithape from BMC’s Garden Deparment to taken a strict stance against the company and have issued a notice to stop all construction work on the land. The company should also been fined heavily for its illegal activity, as well as an FIR must be registered, as per rules.
Environmentalists and conservationists have condemned the actions of the company and have called for stricter laws to protect the environment. They have also called for more stringent penalties for companies and individuals who engage in such illegal activities.
The incident has once again highlighted the need for companies to follow legal regulations and to be more responsible in their actions. It is crucial that we protect our environment for future generations, and such incidents only serve as a reminder of the need to be more vigilant in protecting our natural resources.
Labrador dog choked to death at JD Kennel dog care center; case registered against owner Kishan Jadhav & staff
Payel Halder, Mumbai Uncensored, 4th March 2023:
The Khandeshwar police station has registered a case against the owner and staff of a dog care center in Adai Village after a pet Labrador died due to strangulation. The complainant, Priti Sameer Pati, had kept her pet, Simba, at the center from February 23 to 25, 2023, as she was having guests at home during this period.
Priti alleged that the dog care center did not care for the pet properly and behaved cruelly towards him. She claimed that she never tied her pet Labrador at home, and the pet used to move freely inside the house. However, on February 23, she decided to keep her pet at a dog daycare center for proper care. She found J D Kennel, a dog daycare center in Panvel, through Google search, and the owner of the center, Kishan Jadhav, assured her of proper care of the pet.
On February 25, Priti received a call from Jadhav, who informed her that her pet dog died due to strangulation. He said that after bathing the pet, they had kept him on a table to dry and tied him up with a chain. The table was adjoining a wall, and the pet jumped onto another side of the wall. Since the chain was tied up with the neck of the pet, he was strangulated around 1.30 pm on February 25.
Priti checked the CCTV footage and noticed the same. She alleged that even after seeing the dog hanging on the other side, the daycare center staff dealt with the pet cruelly, and there was no sign of remorse. Even when she reached the daycare center around 3 pm, the dog was already buried in front of the center.
Priti approached the Khandeshwar police station and registered a case under section 11 (1) (f) of the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals Act 1960 and section 119 of the Maharashtra Police Act on February 28. An investigation is being carried out, according to a police official.
A few people have also approached Maharashtra Navnirman Vyapari Sena’s Secretary Mrs. Urmila Swapnil Desai, who is leading the Pet Industry Unit of the party. “We need ethical people in the Pet Industry, as the industry’s name is getting spoilt. I have received several such complains about unethical practices in the Pet Industry of Maharashtra. As a political party, we are taking steps to ensure that justice is given to the ones who deserve it. Regarding this particular matter, we will be taking meetings of Pet Industry Stake Holders across Maharashtra, to avoid such incidents in the future”, said Mrs. Urmila Swapnil Desai, State Secretary of Maharashtra Navnirman Vyapari Sena.
This tragic incident highlights the need for pet owners to be cautious when choosing a dog care center and to ensure that their pets receive proper care and attention. It also emphasizes the importance of enforcing laws to protect animals from cruelty and abuse.
Manish Sisodia prosecuted in Snooping Case: Fate of AAP
Arpita Sarkar, Mumbai Uncensored, 2nd March 2023:
The Aam Admi Party (AAP) is facing a major breakthrough after news surfacing all over social media platforms is covering the snooping case allegations against the deputy chief minister of Delhi, Manish Sisodia. Contemplating the incident of Satyendra Jain behind bars for money laundering case, the party will have a huge setback if Mannish Sisodia gets arrested. It appears that AAP is under a liability to protect the image of Manish Sisodia.
Manish Sisodia heads the vigilance department of Delhi Government which also has the authority of “Feedback Unit” established back in 2015 by the Arvind Kejriwal-led AAP government. It has been alleged that the unit used to spy on opposition parties, ministries, entities and individuals.
According to the probe against the Feedback Unit (FBU) which began in 2016 it collected data of political intelligence to align with the interest of the AAP. The unit was alleged to run and managed by the aids of CM Arvind Kejriwal. Besides, unaccounted expenditure was made in the name of Secret Service Fund allocated to FBU.
It was only after the approval of Delhi Lieutenant Governor, Vinai Kumar Saxena that CBI filed a case against Sisodia on the authority of formation of a Feedback Unit and illegal transaction of funds. Following the updated reports by CBI, Lieutenant Governor Vinai Kumar Saxena forwarded the case to President of India Droupadi Murmu, through the Ministry of Home Affairs. Consequently, the ministry has given a sanction to prosecute and Manish Sisodia could be arrested.
Obviously, AAP will try to refute the charges made and the common phrase of ‘politically motivated allegations’ will again be used.
