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.
NCB filed a draft charge sheet against Rhea Chakraborty, in a drugs case linked to Sushant Singh Rajput.
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: Man sexually assaults gay partner with a candle, rod.
Khushi Thapa, Mumbai Uncensored, 13th July 2022:
The Mulund police detained a 34-year-old man on Monday in a gruesome instance of sexual assault for reportedly inciting injuries to his same-sex companion’s private parts with a burning candle and a plastic rod.
The incident was perpetrated on July 6 at an abandoned godown at Hindustan Chowk in Mulund Colony, according to the Mulund police.
According to the police, the perpetrator, Suresh Mhaske, called the victim, 33, and asked him to meet him at the location.
When the victim arrived, Mhaske demanded the money he was owed, which sparked a dispute between them.
Mhaske allegedly began assaulting the victim while intoxicated, according to the police. Then he lighted a candle and burned his private parts. Using a plastic rod that was lying on the godown, he next used a candle to burn his privates.
The local reports state that the victim and the defendant had been dating for a few months, according to senior police inspector Kantilal Kothimbire.
He was then transferred to Sion Hospital, where the medical staff informed the police about the incident. An offence was filed against Mhaske as a result of the police sending a team to the hospital to record the victim’s statement. He was eventually located and detained late on Monday night.
Mhaske has been arrested by the police on charges of criminal intimidation, voluntarily aggravated assault with dangerous objects or methods, and unnatural sexual assault, all under IPC provisions.
