Why are On-duty Mumbai Police Officers seen sitting inside Bars & Restaurants?

Shashwat Mishra : Mumbai Uncensored, 21 January 2022

On 3rd January, 2021 the hoteliers and restaurant owners of Mumbai have expressed their plight in a letter to the excise department. Their concern is over Mumbai police constables who come to these places at 9:00PM and continue to stay over the premises till 5:00 AM. Their concern is over the fact that since the policemen continue to occupy their space for the aforementioned time frame, the same has severely affected their business, as customers are scared to come to these bars and restaurants for a reason that they might be booked under the law and face actions from police over flouting covid norms. The owners contend that despite following all the guideline/restrictions released by the Maharashtra government and functioning at a 50% capacity, presence of policemen inside bars and restaurants are doing no good. The other issue they have raised is due to such “moral policing”, not just their business is suffering but it is also causing a loss of excise duty to the exchequer.

The other point which needs due consideration is the fact that currently the Mumbai police is not working in its sanctioned capacity as there is a shortage of police personnel and therefore, in such a situation deploying policemen in these clubs and restaurants just for the purpose of keeping a watch on that particular restaurant or bar is their underutilization and is overburdening the police force, this duty of keeping a watch can also be performed by home guards instead. As mentioned in the previous articles by Mumbai Uncensored regarding the shortage of police personnel and the overburdened Mumbai police force, wherein there are not enough police officers to effectively carry out both administrative and investigative functions. 

The current situation is aggravated by deploying officers in bars/restaurants thus, a police force which is already working below its sanctioned strength is now working under more pressure because of the same. The statistics, as of 31st July 2021 states the number of the sanctioned strength of police personnel was 51,255, of which only 41,396 are rendering their services, which suggests a shortage of 19% personnel. There is also a shortage of police officers involved in the investigation which accounts for 18% of the shortage in PSI posts. Apart from this there is a high pendency in the investigation of cases like crime against women (77%), children (80%), and SLL (special and local laws crimes) 77% as of 2020. 

Another ramification which the decision to deploy policemen in these bars and restaurants is the increasing number of covid cases among police personnel, at present there are 523 active cases in Mumbai police. This decision has not done any good and instead has worsened the situation of policing in the city, appropriate steps towards this direction are needed to be taken.

कार्रवायांची पार्श्वभूमी 

मार्च २०२२ मध्ये आयकर विभागाच्या कार्रवायांदरम्यान जीजस लाल च्या मुंबईत बारा ठिकाणी तसेच वसईत २, नाशिक मध्ये ३ ठिकाणी, शिवाय ठाणे, औरंगाबाद आणि मीरा भाईंदरमध्येही छापे टाकण्यात आले. त्याचबरोबर बंगळुरू आणि तामिळनाडूच्या त्रिची येथील जागांवरही छापे टाकण्यात आले. 

हिंदू मंदिर उघडपणे उध्वस्त करूनही अद्याप अटक नाही. स्थानिक प्रशासनाचा कानाडोळा ?

जीजस लाल याने काही दिवसांपूर्वीच म्हाडा वसाहत, ४ बंगला, अंधेरी पश्चिम येथील मल्हारेश्वर शिव मंदिरात रात्री अंधाराचा फायदा घेऊन संपूर्ण मंदिरात रेडी मिक्स काँक्रीट टाकून मंदिर बुजवण्याचा प्रयत्न केला आहे. येथील हिंदू देवी देवतांच्या मुर्त्या, शिवलिंग आणि हिंदूंच्या भावना जोडले गेलेले इतर धार्मिक साहित्य उध्वस्थ करण्यात आले. हे सर्व रात्रीच्या अंधारात केल्यामुळे जाणीवपूर्वक होत असल्याचे सदर घटनेतून स्पष्ट होत आहे. स्टेलर इंटरनॅशनल स्कूलच्या मुजोर व्यवस्थापनाचा हा डाव असल्याचे स्थानिक रहिवासीयांनी दिलेल्या माहितीतून समोर आले आहे. सॅफ्रन थिंक टॅंक चे अध्यक्ष सिद्धांत मोहिते व काही स्थानिक कार्यकर्त्यांच्या दबावानंतर या प्रकरणी जीजस लाल व त्याच्या साथीदारांवर गुन्हे दाखल करण्यात आले आहेत.

स्टेलर इंटरनॅशनल स्कूल चा प्रमुख जीजस लाल व कल्पेश पळसमकर, प्रवेश पाटील आणि त्यांच्या इतर साथीदारांवर मंदिरात काँक्रीट टाकून मंदिरातील शिवलिंग, नंदीची मूर्ती, विठ्ठल रुक्मिणी यांची मूर्ती, तीन मुखी दत्तात्रय मूर्ती, श्री गजानन महाराजांची मूर्ती आणि इतर सर्व मुर्त्या आणि साहित्य चोरल्या अथवा उद्धवस्त केल्या प्रकरणी गुन्हा नोंदविला गेला असून अद्याप १५ हुन अधिक दिवस उलटल्या नंतरही कोणालाही अटक झालेली नाही. 

सॅफ्रन थिंक टॅंक तसेच अनेक हिंदू संघटनांनी पोलिसांकडे १५ दिवसांपूर्वी भादंवि कलम १२० ब हे सुद्धा तक्रारीमध्ये टाकण्यात यावा, यासाठी विनंती केली होती. हि विनंती मान्यकरून सुद्धा अद्याप स्थानिक प्रशासनाकडून या प्रकरणी कोणतीही कार्रवाई झाल्याची माहिती अद्याप प्राप्त झालेली नाही. 

जीजस लालच्या ‘स्टेलर इंटरनॅशनल स्कुल’ कडे जाणाऱ्या रस्त्याचे रहस्य –

सदर घटनेची माहिती आम्हाला अनेक बेनामी पत्रांद्वारे प्राप्त झाली होती. अनेक वर्षांपासून सदर भूखंडावर गोरगरिबांच्या शेकडो झोपडपट्ट्या होत्या. मागील काही महिन्यांपासून सूत्रांच्या माहितीनुसार जीजस लालच्या माणसांच्या फेऱ्या होत असे. सदर घटने दरम्यान झोपडपट्टीत राहणाऱ्या गरीब लोकांवर अनेक प्रकारे अत्याचार करून त्यांना बेघर करण्यात आले आहे. काहींना तर पाच दहा हजारांचे अमिश दाखवून जागा खाली करुन घेतल्याची माहिती समोर आली आहे. 

पण विषय याहूनही गंभीर आहे. ज्या भूखंडात या झोपडपट्या होत्या तो भूखंड म्हाडाच्या मालकीचा असल्याचे स्पष्ट होत आहे. म्हाडाच्या जागेवरील झोपडपट्या उध्वस्थ करून शाळेकडे जाणारा मार्ग खुला करण्यात आला परंतु म्हाडाच्या कोणत्या परवानगीच्या आधारे येथील झोपड्या तोडून नवीन रस्ता बनवण्यात आला ? व स्टेलर इंटरनॅशनल स्कुल कडे जाणारा रस्ता म्हाडाच्या कोणत्या टेंडर अंतर्गत बांधण्यात आला ? हे रहस्य अद्याप उलगडले नाही. 

अंधेरीत बेकायदेशीररीत्या शाळा चालवत असल्याचा पालकांचा आरोप 

अंधेरीतील स्टेलर इंटरनॅशनल स्कुलचे बांधकाम पूर्ण होण्यापूर्वीच शाळा सुरु करून जुनिअर व सिनिअर केजी वर्गातील लहान मुलांचा जीव धोक्यात घालण्याचे काम जीजस लाल यांच्याकडून होत असल्याचे समोर आले आहे. 

अनेक पालकांच्या म्हणण्याप्रमाणे, शाळेच्या इमारतीचे बांधकाम सुरु असतानाही मुलांचे वर्ग सुरु आहेत, जर काही अपघत घडला तर यास जबाबदार कोण असा सवाल उपस्थित होत आहे. 

गोरेगाव मधील सेंट जॉन युनिव्हर्सल स्कूल ची इमारत धोकादायक, हजारो विद्यार्थी तसेच शिक्षक व कर्मचाऱ्यांचा जीव धोक्यात!

गोरेगाव मधील सेंट जॉन युनिव्हर्सल स्कूल हे सुद्धा जीजस लाल याच्याच मालकीचे आहे. सदर शाळेत १८०० विध्यार्थी, १०८ शिक्षक व शेकडो कर्मचारी कार्यरत आहे, शाळेची इमारत धोकादायक असल्यामुळे या सर्वांचा जीव धोक्यात आहे. मध्यंतरी हि शाळा धोकादायक असल्यामुळे १० दिवस बंद ठेवण्यात आली होती. परंतु नाममात्र दुरुस्ती करून पुन्हा एकदा शाळा सुरु करण्यात आली, हि धक्कादायक बाब आहे. आम्हाला प्राप्त झालेल्या बेनामी पत्रांद्वारेच ही माहिती आम्हाला प्राप्त झाली. 

बेकायदेशीर होर्डिंग व म्हाडाच्या जागेत अतिक्रमण

सरदार वल्लभाई पटेल नगर, अंधेरी पश्चिम येथे बेकायदेशीर रित्या स्टेलर ग्रुप च्या नावाने भले मोठे लोखंडी  होर्डिंग लावण्यात आले आहे. स्टेलर इंटरनॅशनल शाळेच्या भूखंडाच्या बाहेर सुद्धा जीजस लाल व त्याच्या लोकांनी पात्रे लावून मोकळ्याजागेत अतिक्रमण करून जागा हडपण्याचा प्रयत्न करत असल्याचे सुद्धा काही स्थानिक रहिवाश्यांनी आम्हाला सांगितले.

NCB filed a draft charge sheet against Rhea Chakraborty, in a drugs case linked to Sushant Singh Rajput.

Published

Tanvi Kapila, Mumbai Uncensored, 15th July 2022:

The Narcotics Central Bureau (NCB) was examining the drug case involving the Indian actor known for commercial movies and television show, Sushant Singh Rajput, because of his sudden demise in his apartment on 14 June 2020 in Mumbai. 

They have finally drafted a charge sheet against 35 accused in the 2020 case of drugs involved in abetting Sushant Singh Rajput to ‘extreme drug addiction’. Additionally, the draft notes that since 2018, the 34-year-old actor has received his drugs.

Under various sections of the Narcotic Drugs and Psychotropic Substances (NDPS) Act, some of the accused mentioned are Rhea Chakraborty, Sushant’s former girlfriend, and two of the late actor’s employees are among those charged for allegedly procuring drugs for Rajput. Chakraborty’s brother, Showik Chakraborty is also under the name of one of the accused in this high-profile case. Involved in the drug–peddling, Siddharth Pithani, a flatmate of the deceased actor, has been accused of “aiding and abetting” the actor’s “severe drug addiction,” among other people.

Circulating drugs in the Bollywood industry and to people in high society

NCB furthermore claimed that the drugs have also been circulated in the industry by the actor, however, the names were not revealed in the draft but Agisilaos Demetriades, who is the brother of actor Arjun Rampal’s partner had repeatedly obtained marijuana/ganja as well as cocaine from a Nigerian national, and has spread it across the Bollywood from the two who were accused.

A further point worth mentioning is that in an interview with ndtv, Rhea very conveniently mentioned she had never talked to any drug dealer or even consumed any drug for that matter. The actor has managed to blatantly lie on national television, lets’s see what more she has in store for everyone. In the same interview, she said that she tried to control Rajput but herself denied the fact that she was also involved in drug peddling.

Allegations against the accused

Section 8(c) read with 20(b)(ii)(A), 22, 27, 27A, 28, 29, and 30 of the NDPS Act are among the allegations brought against the accused by the NCB. The following are included: abetment and criminal conspiracy, attempt, and preparation of committing an offense, production, manufacture, sale, purchase, transport, consumption of any narcotic drug, use, and possession of marijuana and psychoactive substances, financing illicit traffic, and harboring offenders.

It must also be observed that Rhea Chakraborty could spend more than ten years in prison if found guilty. Moreover, Chakraborty is also being investigated by the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) for Sushant’s demise. However, the police stated that the death was a suicide in 2020.

Mumbai Serial Blasts: The 11-minute horror Mumbai faced on 13.7.11

Published

Khushi Thapa, Mumbai Uncensored, 13th July, 2022:

It has been 13 years since Mumbai, the city of dreams went through a tragic nightmare. Within just 11 minutes, three bomb explosions shook the capital of Maharashtra killing at least 25 people and injuring more than 125 others.

Between 6:54 and 7:05 pm, three coherent bomb explosions in Mumbai’s Zaveri Bazar, Opera House, and Dadar neighborhoods sparked havoc and disaster. Days and hours were marked by the tragic deaths of 26 innocent civilians and the injury of an additional 130 others. It jolted India.

Zaveri Bazaar, one of Mumbai’s busiest areas, encountered the first explosion at 6:54 p.m when the bomb was planted on a motorcycle.

The second target of the bomb blast was Opera House, where the bomb was hidden in a lunch box, which exploded at 6:55 pm.

The third device was placed on an electric pole at the bus stand near a school in Dadar and exploded at 7:06 pm

Thereafter, efforts were made to bring the heinous perpetrators to justice. The concerns about who was responsible for the brutal attacks and why those three targets were picked were more prevalent. There was a media scramble to learn more information on anything from the Indian Mujaheddin’s involvement to the Taliban’s plot hatched in the Mumbai underworld to the Kashmir connection to the explosions.

On January 23, 2012, the Mumbai Police declared that the case had been resolved with the capture of two young guys from the Darbhanga area of Bihar. Nadeem Akhtar Ashfaq Sheikh (23) and Naqi Ahmed Wasi Ahmed Sheikh were the people that were arrested (22). The co-founder of the Indian Mujaheddin, Yasin Bhatkal, was identified as the attack’s mastermind by the Mumbai Police’s ATS section.

The Maharastra ATS filed a charge sheet against Nadeem Shaikh, Naqee Ahmed, Haroon Naik, and Kanwar Pathrija in May 2012. The charge sheet also included the names of Yasin Bhatkal, Riyaz Bhatkal, Tehseen Akhtar, Waqas Ibrahim Sad, Danish, and Muzaffar Kolah, a resident of Dubai. Abdul Mateen Fakki was captured by Mumbai ATS in July 2014 at the Dabolim Airport in Goa, after he had arrived from Dubai.

The mastermind behind the cowardly attack Yasin Bhatkal had already been sentenced to death in 2016 in connection to the 2013 Hyderabad blasts. 11 years later, the prosecution of these accused had not made much progress and the case still continues due to the accused being lodged at different prisons on different charges, besides being accused for the bomb blasts.
