Plan to buy gold jewellery in Mumbai? Akshay Tritiya, which is celebrated today, may be the ideal day. For, it is not just an auspicious occasion, but a day where you will get free silver and gold coins, discounts on making charges, free electronic items. That’s not all, you could also win free cars and mobile phones in lucky draws.
2. Mumbai hospital calls police after Eman Ahmed’s sister fights with nurses
Doctors at Saifee Hospital, which is treating Egyptian Eman Ahmed to reduce her weight, called the police on Thursday evening after the woman’s sister allegedly fought with the nurses and “violated rules”. However, police said enquiries revealed that all was well.
3. No proof that Salman Khan’s bodyguard assaulted a 25-year-old: Mumbai cops
The DN Nagar police, who had registered a first information report (FIR) against Bollywood actor Salman Khan’s bodyguard Gurmeet Singh, better known as Shera, and three of his aides for allegedly assaulting a 25-year-old, recently termed the case ‘false’. They are likely to file a ‘B summary’ report in the case, which means there is no evidence against the accused.
4. Mumbai to witness high tides on 18 days this monsoon
While the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) has begun unclogging drains and completing road work, its preparedness for the monsoon will be put to test for 18 days when the sea-levels rise beyond 4.5 meters in Mumbai. According to information provided by civic officials, the city will witness high tides on 18 days this monsoon.
5. Narayan Rane may have to wait to join BJP
While speculations are rife about Congress leader and former chief minister Narayan Rane’s likely induction into the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), the party leaders seem to have put the decision on hold for want of a consensus among other BJP leaders from the state, say sources. The party leadership is also not inclined to take any decision on him till the presidential elections, scheduled to be held in July, are over.
