‘Mumbai, Municipality & Mayhem’ – 12 story tower built on Waqf land




This story will take you by surprise that how a nexus between corrupt local leaders, corporation employs and land grabbers do not even spare lands belonging to religious minorities. MUMBAI PRESS will tell you how a Waqf Land is captured and a multi-story tower is built on it.

This is about the jurisdiction of E ward Municipal office in south Mumbai which has been allegedly bribed to the neck. The officers closed their ear and eyes and the tower was built in 8 months on load bearing on this waqf land.

Do you think..?
It is possible that in E ward jurisdiction on HUJRAH STREET on a land belonging to JUMA MASJID TRUST a 12 story building is erected in 8 months and BMC, Police and local Corporator and MLA did not notice it

Maybe BMC has not paid any heed considering this as an internal matter of Muslims as the land belongs to a waqf body. But the stand of local MLA and Corporator on this blatantly illegal construction is alrming, why they kept mum over an issue which is directly related to public from a religious minority ?…

There is no answer. When local Muslims objected to this unauthorized construction they were threatened of a bogus case as he said to have the backing of police and MLA. It is a known fact in the area that a person named Mehboob Sortia is allegedly behind this land grabbing and unauthorized construction. Mumbai Press has learnt that Mehboob has a shoddy background of being a man with a heavy hand and he is into ill-dealings. It is said that due to pressure from particular party rest of the Muslim leaders are keeping mum. the reason for this silence in surroundings is because everyone has or had interest in ill-dealings related to the property.

when MUMBAI PRESS got into the details it has learnt that this property originally belongs to HUJRAH Street Municipal Urdu School which was shifted from here and the trustee was given a lollipop that this place can be later used for social gathering and functions but what has happened is before all of us a 12 story illegal tower has been erected. as per the sources, E ward’s officers have been paid kickbacks at the rate of 2000 per sq ft as felicitation charges i.e. 1.5 cr. however, now BMC is in a hands up mode and in the name of action few notices have been issued the locals also have moved to court against this WAQF LAND grabbing they say that Mehboob Soratya is known for these activities and he generally operates in the constituency of MLA Amin Patel.

Mumbai Press Spoke to Lawyer Ejaz Naqvi who said- As per waqf act a waqf property cannot be handed over/Sold or Developed at free will.

Looking at the photographs it is visible that this building is constructed on load bearing and it can fall down like a castle of cards with heavy damage caused to surroundings. The best part is that this illegal construction is has happened at the behest of local MLA who is being seen shouting in the house for so-called betterment of the society.


Sweets are distributed Before IPS gets transfer order… Uddhav Govt is under docs over transfers




Shivsena Govt in Maharashtra is under shadow over transfers of Govt Officials. The opposition is continuously attacking Shivsena Govt on transfers and placement of Govt officials they say that there is big nexus of Govt Officials and Political leaders in power and everything is happening under this nexus. Possibly big money involvement is also there. However, there have been cancellations of transfer orders in Udhav Govt and this suggests that someone is holding the remote for the Govt.

This time also similar case is seen in the post of SP of Raigarh it is said that many IPS are in a queue for the post and on the other side, politicians are also up as they want their officers to be appointed and that why there is a delay in coming up of the order and there is a twist that an officer named Ashok Dudhe has been confirmed for the post before any order. NCP leader and MP Sunil Tatkare have been vouching for Mr. Dudhe as Tatkare wants him to be appointed in Raigarh.

Now the question arises that why Merit is cornered in this Govt and posting and transfers are happening at the behest of political leaders. And now if Mr. Dudhe is appointed then it is confirmed that it happened coz of Tatkare and there is an element of corruption and political interference is there and what Udhav Govt does to curb this.
