While 20 Poddar International School students had a harrowing commute after the school bus they were travelling in veered out of control, rammed into a SUV and collided head-on with two autorickshaws in Santacruz, the Mumbai-Pune expressway saw heavy traffic congestions after a trailer toppled near Khandala. According to the Enforcement Directorate in the complaint filed before the special court for Prevention of Money Laundering Act (PMLA), liquor baron Vijay Mallya has laundered Rs1301.67 crore though various shell companies in India and abroad. The Bombay high court struck down criminal proceedings against a 20-year-old who was held for allegedly stalking and sexually harassing a woman, after he promised to clean, sweep and mop a children’s home at Mohol in Solapur. Also, the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) sent notices to 1,250 bulk waste generators that include five star hotels, housing societies, government institutes, and movie-theatres among others to segregate and process waste or their waste will not get picked up.
