Division bench of Justice Rohinton Nariman and Justice Navin Sinha dismissed the special leave petition filed by Senior Advocate Siddartha Dave on behalf of Mamta Kulkarni against the Bombay High Court’s judgment dated August 26, 2018 wherein the High Court refused to quash cases filed under various Sections of the Narcotics Drugs & Psychotropic Substances Act against her. However, Court allowed the application for condonation of delay filed by the petitioner against the High Court’s judgment as there was a delay of 96 days, and said- “We request the High Court, if possible, given the current pandemic situation, to take up and dispose of Writ Petition No. 5427 of 2018 as expeditiously as is possible in the circumstances.” Initially, FIR was registered against two people on April 12, 2016 under Sections 6(c), 9(a), 25(a), 29 of the NDPS Act at Vartak Nagar police Station, Thane for possession of 2 kg Ephedrine, a narcotics substance valuing Rs.80 lakhs. Thereafter, upon investigation, police claimed to have unearthed a massive international drug racket and named Kulkarni as one of the 17 accused in the four charge sheets filed by them. Kulkarni has alleged in her petition that frivolous allegations have been levelled against her on the basis of statements of two others accused in the case. According to the petitioner, accused Kishor Rathore and Bharat Kathiya stated before the police that she took part in the meeting at Mumbasa, Kenya in January 2016 where the alleged “conspiracy of transporting the Ephedrine powder lying in Avon Life Science Company at Solapur to Kenya for the purpose of manufacturing Methamphetamine throughout the world was hatched.” The petition states- “It is pertinent to mention that the role ascribed to the petitioner is primarily based on suspicion and that not even a shred of evidence what to say incriminating evidence appears to have been either found or annexed with any of the Chargesheets which could depict her complicity in the commission of the alleged crime.” Moreover, the investigating agency appears to have roped in the name of the petitioner in the alleged crime since she is a well wisher of one of the co-accused Vicky Goswami and the petitioner and her family members had a genial relationship with him for several decades. However, the said assumption on part of the Investigating Agency leading to false implication of the petitioner is nothing but a desperate attempt on its part to sensationalize and dramatize the entire incident of drug bust of an international character without the petitioner having played any role either at the inception, or during or after the commission of the crime.” The petitioner has also contended that the Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA) of the United States was also investigating the illegal trafficking of ephedrine which was taking place from Avon Life Sciences at Solapur and had requested Mumbai police for additional information. However, when the Acting United States Attorney of the United States District Court, Southern District of New York framed charges in the case against Vicky Goswami and others, the petitioners name has not been mentioned anywhere. Thus, the FIR against her is sought to be quashed. Alleging that she has been falsely implicated in the case, the petitioner states that although she filed a petition for quashing of said FIR against her, the petition came to be listed thrice before the High Court yet the same was adjourned on all three occasions leading to its pendency for more than one and a half years. Thus, the petitioner sought direction to the High Court for expeditious disposal of her case for quashing which was granted.Click Here To Download Order[Read Order] Next Storylast_img read more

A Generation of Gems in Fair Haven

first_imgBy Michele J. KuhnFAIR HAVEN – Maureen Bay has been responsible for bringing a lot of sparkle and beauty to the borough for 30 years.Bay, the owner of Gem of An Idea at 740 River Road, is celebrating her 30th year in business and is proud of the designs, quality and trust-worthiness she has been able to offer her customers for three decades.Maureen Bay is celebrating 30 years in Fair Haven as the owner of Gem of An Idea.Bay began in the jewelry business working in a store in Shrewsbury. She and another employee decided to become partners in 1983 and they opened a store in another borough location. Bay amicably bought her partner out about six years later and moved the business to her present address.Her longevity has given her the pleasure of serving not only her original customers but also their children and now some of their grandchildren as well.“I’m now on the third generation of some of the families coming in to me,” Bay said. “I almost feel a little motherly or, maybe sentimental, about my clients. I’m resetting diamonds I sold to a young couple and now they are using that for their son or their daughter and they are having a baby … It’s kind of nice.“It’s making me feel old but it’s also making me feel that, if you can hold on to three generations of customers, you must be doing something right.”Bay has a passion for her business and the things she designs and sells. “I’ve always said this business is two things: trust and emotion. People have to trust you but buying jewelry … is an emotional thing … Most of it is for an occasion. It takes on added importance.”Bay feels that sense of responsibility to help customers buy that gift “whether it’s a father coming in with his son buying something for Mother’s Day for the first time” or someone purchasing something more extravagant. “You have to steer that client toward something that has to be just right, be the right price, be right for the person getting it, say everything they want it to say.”Bay’s business has chang­ed over the years. She says that when she and her partner founded the business, they were not as ambitious nor did they have a lot of money. “We did a lot of beaded jewelry,” she said. “We made a lot of our own things. I made a lot. I started out at the bench doing repairs. So my position with the business has moved from the bench area and creating to dealing more with the customers. Now I’m more behind-the-scenes again. I’m more into the operational part of the business.”While Bay is still creating exquisite pieces of jewelry, she has taken Gem of An Idea’s inventory over the years from its more humble start to more exclusive lines in gold and platinum and a wide variety of gemstones that represent her custom-designed pieces and various brands.Bay’s business philosophy is that she wants her customers “to feel comfortable … feel assured that they are dealing with someone who is honestly steering them in the right direction, someone who is offering them true value…I want them to feel confident and happy. I want them to walk out the door happy they came in and happy with whatever purchase or decision that they made.“I like to look a person in the eye and I like to be able to do the same thing 10 years after I sell them something,” she said.Bay estimates that within a mile of her store there are at least 15 jewelry stores, not to mention the various online retailers. “So why come in here?” she asks and then answers that she is “ offering something a little different, going out of our way for service … giving something to my customers that they can’t find elsewhere in terms of service, style, attention to them.“When someone walks in the door, they don’t remain anonymous for long,” she said proudly. “We go out of our way … whatever it takes.”Bay also is well known for her community spirit and has been actively involved in many Fair Haven occasions over the years. She was president of the Fair Haven Business Association for more than 20 years and has involved herself with different groups, including those fighting breast cancer, borough organizations, Clean Ocean Action, CPC Behavioral Healthcare and her alma mater, Monmouth University. “It’s important to give back,” she said. ”It’s also a way for people to meet me … and do something nice. If I have the ability to contribute, then I feel I have that obligation to support my community.”Bay came to the area from Massachusetts to attend Monmouth University in 1970. It was there she met her husband and graduated with degrees in fine arts and education. She taught school for a bit but decided that was not the direction she wanted to go and went into retail. She continued her education and is credentialed by the Gemological Institute of America.As someone surrounded by beautiful precious metals, fabulous pearls and glittering gemstones, Bay’s taste is “very eclectic.” Personally, she is drawn toward tourmaline. “It’s untreated, it comes in a variety of natural colors and it can be affordable or very expensive,” she said.She and her husband have enjoyed living in the area and riding their Harleys together. They have traveled extensively for more than 25 years around the East Coast on their motorcycles. They own five now. “It’s a good way to forget troubles of any sort,” she said.Though they now have a second home in North Carolina – found while on a motorcycle trip – and escape there whenever they can, Bay sees herself continuing with Gem of An Idea long past her 30 years in Fair Haven.“I like it here. I like the small town, close atmosphere. I like walking down the street and waving to people,” Bay said. “I feel very comfortable. I like the police. They watch me and make me feel safe … I like that people can park and walk into the store. It’s accessible and easy. It works for me.”last_img read more

Voters Approve RBR Referendum

first_imgLITTLE SILVER – In a special school election held Dec. 11, voters in three boroughs approved a $17.3 million capital improvements plan for Red Bank Regional High School. The first proposal included a new roof ($4 million), renovation of existing facilities ($4.6 million) and the construction of 10 new classrooms ($7.1 million) for a price tag of $15.7 million in addition to state funding. Of the 2,186 votes cast on the first referendum question, 69 percent of the voters said yes, and 31 percent voted no. The second proposal centered on replacing Red Bank Regional’s grass football field with a multisport turf surface ($1.6 million) and upgrading the facility’s restrooms and concession stand ($730,000) for a cost of $2.3 million. Of the 2,170 votes cast on the second question. 59 percent voted yes and 40 percent voted no. Part of that presentation focused on the $4.9 million in state aid the school is expected to receive toward the plan. “I think you need to maintain the standards of the school,” Bill said. “The proposal for the artificial turf is a little bit of add-on, I think. But I can see how that ties into maintaining the infrastructure of the property.” Red Bank Regional Superintendent Louis B. Moore said the school community also reached more than 400 residents over that span, each time stressing that if the plan was not approved, the potential to cut school programming would increase and school taxes would surge. The rapid growth cut into enrollment at Red Bank Regional’s respected five academies by out-of-district tuition-paying students. Tuition revenue decreased from $4 million to $2.8 million during that time period. “The big takeaway for me, aside from the fact that both questions passed, is that both questions passed in all three towns,” said Red Bank Regional Board of Education member Frank A. Neary Jr. in a interview with The Two River Times Tuesday night. With these improvements, board member Neary said all the data and projections he and the board possess shows Red Bank Regional in a “good position for the foreseeable future.” “We have some wonderful academic programs. We also have some great specialty programs in our academies. These renovations are going to bring our facility up to speed. We have the programs, we have an incredible staff, now we’re going to have the facilities that will allow us to continue to grow. Red Bank Regional is on a roll,” Moore added. After 2023, costs are expected to drop to $12, $13 and $15 per year, respectively, school board officials said. All of their children have attended Red Bank Regional. Now their grandchildren are preparing to enter the high school, and the Hanrattys were both motivated to cast “yes” votes in Tuesday’s election. Moore said the focus of the improvement plan was always academics. According to unofficial results published Wednesday by the Monmouth County Clerk’s office, Red Bank Regional school district voters in Little Silver, Shrewsbury and Red Bank approved a $17.3 million plan for upgrades to the school’s academic and athletic facilities. The reason why, Moore said, is because enrollment is on an upward trend at the Ridge Road high school. Over the past four years, classroom space had become tight due to growing in-district enrollment. Each homeowner will have a different tax burden depending on the town they live in and the assessed value of their home. According to the school board, the average cost to Little Silver residents will be an additional $23 per year. It will be an average of $22 more in Red Bank and $24 more in Shrewsbury. Neary spent the last six months championing the improvements plan to more than 60 school district groups. Bill and Margie Hanratty have been Little Silver residents since 1978 when the U.S. Navy stationed Bill at Naval Weapons Station Earle in the Leonardo section of Middletown Township. “This was an overwhelming show of support from all three communities, and I think that’s because this is a reasonable plan that was well thought out,” Neary added. “We were clear about this from the beginning. The academic program came first,” said Moore, noting that Proposal No. 2 for the turf field could not pass if Proposal No. 1 failed. “We’ve supported Red Bank Regional for many years and we’d like it to maintain its reputation,” Margie added. “We’re not in perfect condition. And no- body knows what’s going to happen 10 or 20 years down the road, but we think for a good amount of time this is going to be a very reasonable plan. It’s not the perfect plan. But it’s a reasonable plan. And the administration and staff here can make it work,” Neary added. Residents were asked to weigh in on two questions in the voting booth.last_img read more
