Welcome To Mumbai Road !!!!

Mumbai suffers from the same major urbanisation problems seen in many fast growing cities in developing countries: widespread poverty and unemployment, poor public health and poor civil and educational standards for a large section of the population. About 60% of Mumbai's population lives in slums. Dharavi, Asia's second largest slum is located in central Mumbai and houses 800,000 people. The number of migrants to Mumbai from outside Maharashtra during the 1991–2001 decade was 1.12 million, which amounted to 54.8% of the net addition to the population of Mumbai.In 2007, the crime rate (crimes booked under Indian Penal Code) in Mumbai was 186.2 per 1,00,000 population, which was slightly higher than the national average of 175.1, but much lower than the average crime rate of 312.3 in cities with more than one million people in the country.The city's main and oldest jail is the Arthur Road Jail.

26/11/2008 Mumbai attacks

The 2008 Mumbai attacks were more than ten coordinated shooting and bombing terrorist attacks across Mumbai, India's largest city, by Islamic terrorists from Pakistan. The attacks, which drew widespread condemnation across the world, began on 26 November 2008 and lasted until 29 November, killing at least 173 people and wounding at least 308.Eight of the attacks occurred in South Mumbai: at Chhatrapati Shivaji Terminus, the Oberoi Trident, the Taj Mahal Palace & Tower,Leopold Cafe, Cama Hospital, the Orthodox Jewish-owned Nariman House, the Metro Cinema, and a lane behind the Times of India building and St. Xavier's College. There was also an explosion at Mazagaon, in Mumbai's port area, and in a taxi at Vile Parle. By the early morning of 28 November, all sites except for the Taj hotel had been secured by Mumbai Police and security forces. An action by India's National Security Guards (NSG) on 29 November (the action is officially named Operation Black Tornado) resulted in the death of the last remaining attackers at the Taj hotel, ending all fighting in the attacks.

Ajmal Kasab, the only attacker who was captured alive, disclosed that the attackers were members of Lashkar-e-Taiba, the Pakistan-based militant organization, considered a terrorist organization by India, the United States, and the United Kingdom, among others. The Indian Government said that the attackers came from Pakistan, and their controllers were in Pakistan.
On 7 January 2009, after more than a month of denying the nationality of the attackers, Pakistan's Information Minister Sherry Rehman officially accepted Ajmal Amir's nationality as Pakistani. On 12 February 2009, Pakistan's Interior Minister Rehman Malik, in a televised news briefing, confirmed that parts of the attack had been planned in Pakistan and said that six people, including the alleged mastermind, were being held in connection with the attacks.

The Killer IITian

Pushpam Kumar Sinha, the 34-year-old IIT Delhi scholar confessed to his crime when confronted by the police. Sinha strangled 19-year-old Ramchanphy Hongray after she spurned his repeated advances. Hongray was Sinha's neighbour in south Delhi's Munirka locality. Sinha killed and burnt her body on a gas stove to make the murder look like an accident. Police said that the accused was a 'pervert and maniac' and that he suffered from obsessive compulsive disorder. It seems that Sinha tried to rape the victim and then panicked when the later threatened to hand him over to the police. Sinha strangled her and put her face and upper torso on the gas stove to cover up his crime. It was only after the post mortem report that Sinha was booked for murder and tampering with the evidence. Hongray was visiting her elder sister in Delhi while Sinha had taken up residence in the same building 25 days ago.
Model: Neeraj Grover: (Maria Susairaj).The city of Mumbai witnessed the shocking murder of Neeraj grover, creative head of Synergy Adlabs in the month of May. Neeraj who was registered 'missing' on 7th May by his parents was brutally murdered by Maria Susairaj, a Kannada film actress and her boyfriend. Popularly termed as the 'love triangle' by many newspapers, Neeraj's murder story seemed to be taken right out of a Bollywood movie. Susairaj, who had earlier acted in 4 kannada movies, wanted to make her mark in Mumbai and used Neeraj for this purpose.The night before the murder, Neeraj had gone to Maria's house to 'help her shift into the house'. Mathew was aware of this and asked Maria not to let him stay over. His girlfriend however did not pay heed and the very next morning Mathew came up to the house and found a naked Grover in Maria's bedroom. An argument started between the guys, which ended up in Mathew stabbing Neeraj and killing him. Both Maria and Mathew tried to hide the evidence by re-painting the wall and chopping Grover's body, putting it into plastic bags and burning them. The watchman, who was a key witness to the murder, saw the couple transferring the bags from the house to the car.
