While a Dadar resident was on Tuesday arrested for breaking and damaging an LCD screen on the Mumbai-Goa Tejas Express last month, tomatoes worth Rs70,000 were stolen from a vegetable market in Mumbai recently. Those heading to Konkan from Dombivli, Kalyan or Diva can soon rejoice, as festive-special Konkan-bound trains and a few express trains may soon halt at Diva railway station. A team of Enforcement Directorate (ED) officials submitted a charge sheet against liquor baron Vijjay Mallya to Britain’s Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) that will argue the extradition case for India. Also, if you’re interested in showcasing your piece of art, you can now contact your local ward officers, as the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation is allowing local artists to beautify traffic islands across the city.
