Maharashtra Forensic Science Laboratory to get separate units to study sexual assault, POCSO cases 16.8.2018 DNA: Money
Cases of sexual assault and crimes against minors will see faster investigations and judicial outcomes with the state forensic science laboratory getting funds from the Centre to establish a separate, dedicated unit for analysing such offences. At present, DNA testing facilities are available in four of the eight forensic science laboratories in Maharashtra. However, the increasing number of cases sent for DNA analysis causes a huge backlog, affecting investigations by enforcement agencies like the police. Apart from analysing evidence in cases of sexual assault, DNA profiling is also used to identify unidentified and mutilated bodies, in paternity suits and offences like murder and attempt to murder. "We have a sent a Rs 26.50 crore proposal to the Centre for setting up a modern DNA analysis lab in Mumbai and recruitment of staff.

DNA SPECIAL: CM Devendra Fadnavis is right - Maharashtra's biz hub image is hurt by caste stirs 7.8.2018 DNA: Popular News
Concerned over the spate of communal clashes and caste-related strikes in the state, industry experts are a worried lot. Many have echoed Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis' view that the investment sentiment in Maharashtra is going southwards due to the ongoing Maratha strife. Some industrialists and top honchos have urged the Fadnavis-led government to immediately take actions to maintain law and order in the state. They want Maharashtra to be portrayed as an 'investor-friendly' state in order to attract direct and foreign investments. Fadnavis' appeal to Maratha protesters gains significance as Maharashtra slipped to the 13th rank on the ease of doing business list. Incidents of violence, arson have had an impact on prominent industry hubs like Mumbai, Navi-Mumbai, Pune and Aurangabad. "Maintenance of law and order is imperative for any state to attract investments. It is in the enlightened self-interest of the protestors and the Government to ensure that civil society and businesses are not harmed or ...

Elphinstone Road stampede effect: Exits, entries double for Metro stations 31.7.2018 DNA: Top News
Cautioned by the recent tragedies brought on by failing infrastructure and overcrowding at railway stations, the Mumbai Metropolitan Region Development Authority (MMRDA) is rushing to increase the entry and exit points and also double staircases and escalators at upcoming Metro stations. The alarms were raised by tragedies such as the Elphinstone Road stampede of September 2017, and the near-stampede like situation at Lower Parel station brought on by the closure of the Delisle Road bridge earlier in July. In the initial plan, MMRDA had slotted two entries and exits, i.e. two staircases and two escalators at every Metro station. This will now be doubled to four staircases and four escalators. "We have to estimate footfall for the next 20 years at these Metro corridors," said RA Rajeev, metropolitan commissioner of MMRDA. "Also, judging by the Versova-Andheri-Ghatkopar Metro-1 corridor, the number of staircases and escalators need to be doubled. This will definitely increase cost, but it's worth ...
