Cleaner caught slyly taking video
films of women in toilet
By Vikram Gaikwad
cleaner working in a
company at Taloja
MIDC would hide the
mobile camera in the
ladies toilet and take
the video films of women and young girls who
would go to that particular toilet. Ganesh Patil (25) is the name of
the cleaner and the
Taloja police has registered a criminal case
under IT Act and arrested him.
The accused Ganesh
Patil is the resident of
Majkur village at Taloja. He works as cleaner in the company at
Taloja MIDC. He also
had to clean the toilet
of the company. He
could enter ladies toilet
too. He would take un-
due advantage of this
power. On 17 May, at
1.30 pm, he, with the
intention of capturing
pictures of women and
young girls visiting the
toilet, hid his mobile
camera under the basin. But one young
woman happened to notice the mobile camera
kept under the basin.
She showed this to her
friend and they took the
mobile phone in their
possession. When the
girl checked the mobile
she came to know that
the phone belonged to
the cleaner Ganesh Patil and that he had captured a video clip inside
the ladies toilet.
She then informed
about this to the management of the company and also in her
home. After that on Friday a complaint related to his was lodged at
Taloja police station.
The police took serious
note of this complaint
and registered a criminal case under IT Act
against the accused
Ganesh Patil and arrested him. The court
allowed the accused to
get released on bail, informed woman deputy
police inspector Patil.
The mobile phone of
Ganesh Patil has been
confiscated and it was
found that one video
film captured by that
mobile was discovered.
During the investigation, it became known
that in the past too
Ganesh Patil had taken a video film within
the toilet.

By a staff reporter
VASHI: “Till
separate Development Control Rules
for NAINA are
approved, CIDCO
should approve our
projects under MMR
and/or rules in force
in the local municipalities.” This is the
main demand put
forward by a delegation of Mahrashtrian
Builders Association
which met Chief
Minister Devendra
Fadnavis the other
day. The delegation
was led by the
association president
K K Mhatre and
included its Treasurer Hitesh Sawant
and others.
“The restriction
on the height of
buildings being built
within the 200 meter
radius of gaothans
should also be removed,” they demanded.
“Presently, CIDCO, the nodal
agency, is collecting
full developmental
charges though it is
not undertaking any
development,” they
complained. The
developers are also
required to produce a
NOC from the
Airport Authorities.
This is proving to be
irksome,” they said.
General Secretary
Anand Patil and
former President
Vikas Bhamre were
the others who were
in the delegation.

Tendulkar has left such a firm imprint on a
limited-overs contest. In this year’s IPL,
Kohli was in the zone, his bat a mere extension of his arm, pulling out shots at will
that no fielding team could anticipate or
limit. Kohli held centre stage, ahead of
Chris Gayle and A.B. de Villiers.
Throughout the tournament Kohli
gained tempo, shepherded his team, destroyed bowlers with huge sixes and was
always alert to the little gaps in the field
through which he threaded boundaries.
His four centuries came double-fast.
Undoubtedly the star performer of IPL
2016, Kohli and his men should have lifted the cup this time for their extravaganza throughout the season. His batting in
2016 has been surreal. It’s true that he
has been little unlucky this time but he won
our hearts instead.
Salute to Kohli for his cricketing prowess. He has set such tall benchmarks in
the batting that the IPL editions in the future are bound to be more and more interesting - and hence, more entertaining - as
the batsmen would compete to reach those
standards and try to even excel them. Perhaps, cricket lovers and players would be
indebted to Kohli for this, for many years
to come.
We should wait and see and what he
does in other formats but with this form
he could beat more records including that
of Sachin
Virat Kohli deserves to be the captain
in all three formats. He is a special blend
of consistency, power and presence of
mind. It is time for Indian cricket selectors to start thinking. India has no major
event in three years till 2019 World Cup.
This is the best chance to think and build.
Virat Kohli has rightly been named as
T20 Player of the Year. A time has come
where you have someone you have
groomed over a period of time, who is
ready. In the next 18 months, India hardly
plays any ODIs, the gaps between Tests
and ODIs are massive. So it’s time to look

City tourists find no blood test facilities and dysfunctional ATMs at Matheran

Banners in HDFC circle?
HDFC circle is totally decorated with banners
and poster. These banners have invaded every inch
of the circle, which is become a great nuisance to
the citizens. They are all cluttered with huge banners giving the circle an ugly look. What is most
surprising is that these banners have come to occupy every vantage point
and obstruct the traffic and distract the car drivers.
In spite of that, all our authorities are silently watching the activities.
It certainly proves that they are all incompetent to stop such activities
and they are not able to take any action against them.
It is high time that such kind of banners are banned by the civic
administration. Authorities should issue a notice to the party and leaders
not to install such banners and impose huge fine. They should respect the
High court order.

Miraculous escape
An air ambulance with seven persons on board crash landed in the
field of Najafgarh area of South Delhi after both its engines apparently
shut down but no one sustained any major injury. It is indeed a freak
accident and all the passengers were saved owing to the brave act of the
pilot. A 61 year old cardiac patient was being ferried to Delhi from Patna
in the aircraft. The others miraculously escaped including the crew, the
patient’s relatives and a doctor.
It was a daring attempt by the pilot to land on the adjoining road to
the field and after touching down, it took off again only to land at a nearby
field. The villagers lent their helping hand and the patient escaped without getting injured in the process.
Pilot deserves all credit for avoiding a fatal tragedy inside the Air Ambulance. Further, he avoided the crowded residential area to prevent any
civilian causality. The mishap occurred when both its engines failed midair and the pilot was forced to make an emergency landing despite being
a few kilometres away from the Delhi airport and was forced to land in
city’s outskirts.
It is indeed a miraculous escape for all the crew members and others
inside the air ambulance. The cardiac patient got the real shock of his life
before being treated in Delhi.

Over 15,000 corporate employees partake

Vashi based Hospital
reached out to over
15,000 employees by
conducting a number of
interactive activities
that focused on the benefits of quitting smoking.

ILL EFFECTS OF SMOKING: The menace of smoking is a worldwide risk and the single most significant reason for preventable diseases and deaths. There are over 4,000 compounds in cigarette
smoke, of which, most are found to be toxic and are known to damage human cells. Some of them
are Carcinogenic – causing cancer. Tobacco smoke comprises mainly of Nicotine (not carcinogenic,
but highly addictive), Carbon Monoxide (a poisonous gas) and Tar (contains several cancer-causing
chemicals). When a smoker inhales cigarette smoke, 70% of the tar remains in the lungs. Over
time, these chemicals cause enough damage to the body to cause multiple types of critical illnesses.
The number of smoking population across the globe is staggering. According to the data from the
World Health Organisation (WHO), there are about 130 Crore smokers worldwide and 20 billion
cigarettes are sold every day. There are approximately 12 Cr smokers in India. According to ‘The
Economic Burden of Tobacco related diseases in India’, released by the Public Health Foundation of
India, with support from the Ministry of Health & Family Welfare and the WHO India, the total
economic costs attributable to tobacco use from all diseases in India, in 2011, for persons aged 35-69
years amounted to Rs 1,04,500Cr.
TRENDS WORLD WIDE: WHO reports tobacco use as the leading preventable cause of death; each
year, it kills more than 5 million (50 lakhs) people. It is on track to kill more than 8 million by 2030,
by which time approximately 80% of the deaths would occur in low- and middle-income countries.
• WHO reports that 5million deaths are due to direct use of tobacco and nearly 6 lakhs deaths
are due to secondary exposure
• If current smoking pattern remains, by 2020 there will be around 10 million (1 Cr deaths)
each year
• Smoking causes 30% of all cancer deaths, 17% of heart disease death and 80% of death due to
bronchitis and emphysema
• Over one in two people in India are exposed to second hand smoking at home and 29% in public

may help people to quit
smoking. The ‘Quit
Smoking Pledge Wall’
was placed at the venue, on which a number
of smokers pledged to
quit their habit of
smoking. A number of
people, who have quit
smoking, shared ideas
that may help others,
kick the butt. A walkathon was also organized
inside the Corporate
Park to spread the message about healthy l living by quitting smoking.
Dr Shirshir Shetty,
Onco Surgeon, Fortis
Hospital Vashi, who
oversaw the World NoTobacco Day activities,
said, “Smoking is an
easy habit to form, but
difficult to quit. Young
people typically start
smoking to satisfy their
curiosity, but soon end
up getting used to the
experience. The menace of smoking is noticeable among the
young corporate employees – especially in
the IT / ITES and BPO
sectors. Once addicted,
it becomes an excuse for
taking a break, and feel
relaxed amid stress of
workload. While warnings of the hazard of
smoking are all over,
smokers tend to ignore
the fact that it can
cause life-threatening
illnesses – and in worst
cases, even death. More
and more young men
and women professionals are getting addicted to smoking, risking
not only their own
health, but also of those
who are in their company. Fortis Hospital,
Vashi, is reaching out
to the corporate employees with a simple
and clear message –
Say No to Tobacco today
for healthier tomorrow.”
As per statistical
day the Fortis gets approximately 10 cases
every week, where patients are affected due
to the habit of smoking.
