Prostitution racket busted at Mira Road

A prostituion racket was busted at Mira Road on Wednesday when three were arrested and seven girls rescued.

Officials said both housewives and college girls were engaged in "entertaining customers'' at the two-bedroom flat at New Golden Nest building in Mira Road. Acting on a tip-off, the police sent an officer as a decoy to `L' wing flat of Phase 14 of the housing society.
During a raid, Jaishree Srivastava (32) and Yashodaben Patel (45), who ran the business, were arrested. The police said the women had a list of the names and contact details of housewives and college girls, willing to make a quick buck.
While the college girls offered their services during the day, the customers making it during night hours were entertained by professional call girls.
According to the police, customers were picked up through word of mouth. Every client, who came to the flat, would be asked to recommend the place to their friends. The customers' calls would be received by Srivastava and Patel, who would then get in touch with the girls and housewives. The rates for college girls were higher than that of housewives.

Seven girls, who had come for "work'' were rescued. The police also arrested a customer, Chirag Shah (28) from Bhayander, who frequented the place.

Youths Riding triples killed in accident near Kashimira

BHAYANDER: Three youths, riding a two-wheeler without helmets, were crushed by a speeding truck at Kashimira in the wee hours of Sunday, 14th December 2008.

Durgesh Taigaokar, celebrating his 23rd birthday on Saturday, decided to go out with friends Robert C (24) and Viral Barot (20). Late in the evening, Taigaokar met Robert who had a motorbike. They picked up Barot and headed towards Dahisar for dinner. Robert was riding the bike, while Taigaokar and Barot were sitting pillion.

The three were returning to their homes in Bhayander around 4 am on Sunday, when a speeding truck hit them from behind at Mira Gaon, near Kashimira. The three were flung from the two-wheeler and crushed by the truck. The driver of the vehicle fled from the spot.

Kashimira police said while the truck driver had lost control of his vehicle, the two-wheeler was also speeding as the road was deserted at that time. Police said whether the youths were drunk or not was not known. Taigaokar was to leave for work on a ship in a few days.

Riding triples, a common sight in Mira Road and Bhayander, has been the reason behind a number of accidents on the stretch. Unlike the Mumbai traffic police, the Thane traffic police do not conduct surprise checks on these roads.

Despite govt orders passengers are at the mercy of auto drivers

Every day, when Mahendra Singh tries to take an auto from the Mira Road area to travel up to Borivli, he is turned down. The state government's notification of seamless travel within the Mumbai Metropolitan Region (MMR) is over nine months old. But not a single auto driver in the Mira-Bhayander region has obtained the requisite permission to ply outside the area.

Though the state government insists that seamless travel is in place, passengers are at the mercy of auto drivers who refuse to go beyond the Dahisar check naka. Police officials at Bhayander, Mira Road and Kashimira are busy playing mediator between passengers and auto drivers who are turning up at police stations to lodge complaints.

State transport secretary Ramanath Jha was unaware of the non-implementation of the seamless travel project. "The notification was out long ago and autos have to get their stamp of approval from the RTOs. Those failing to ply within the MMR region can be penalised,'' said Jha.

The notification for autos and taxis to ply across six municipal corporations and 13 civic councils was out in March this year. The Thane RTO, however, has till date not received a single request from an auto owner, asking for permission to ply outside his jurisdiction. The state, unfortunately, has left it to the vehicle owners to decide whether or not they want to ply outside their jurisdiction.

The primary reason for the auto drivers' refusal to ply outside their jurisdiction, is the Mumbai fare structure. Autos in the city ply at a minimum fare of Rs 9. In Thane, autos charge a minimum of Rs 10, and it goes up by Rs 1.50 per km as the distance increases. In Mira-Bhayander, autos charge a lump sum of Rs 35-Rs 50 for a distance that would otherwise not cost more than Rs 15-Rs 20. In Vasai-Virar and Kalyan-Dombivli, share autos fetch the driver between Rs 5 and Rs 10 per passenger. They carry at least five to seven passengers in each trip.
Auto drivers in Mira Road and Bhayander have so far resisted even the meter system as they make more money by carrying passengers on a share basis. "What is the use of introducing a scheme which does not take off? I quarrel with auto drivers almost every day. They just refuse to ply to Kandivli,'' said Bhayander resident Avinash Salil. "I end up taking another auto at the Dahisar check naka.''
