Every third person you meet in an Indian city today is a youth.  In about seven years the median age in India will be 29 years, very likely of a city-dweller, making it the youngest country in the world.

The State of the Urban Youth India 2012: Employment, Livelihoods, Skills is published by IRIS Knowledge Foundation (IKF), Mumbai India for the UN-HABITAT Global Urban Youth Research Network (GUYRN) of which IKF is part. It is a first attempt to pull together a data and knowledge base on and of youth in urban India.  The focus of the Report is youth employment and youth livelihoods in urban India.   Through a three-city survey the Report incorporates a youth perspective on the situation of urban youth that is revealed by data and literature.

The Report rolls out a data embedded panorama of urban youth and provides the material for public debate on programmes and policies on youth employment, skill development and livelihoods. It does not aspire to make recommendations, but only to suggest broadly the need for a paradigm shift in addressing the issue of the urban young so that youth are in charge of change.

The Report evolved through discussion among scholars from different fields. In developing the Report the attempt has been to include youth voice and contribution. The field survey was mainly conducted by research students in the social sciences. Of the illustrations in the volume, seven photographs were winning contributions in a youth contest ‘Urban Shutter’ specially organized to generate photographs for the volume.

#Mumbai -Spot boy poses as film financier, promises jr artiste roles, rapes her #Vaw #Wtfnews


RAPE

Nitasha Natu TNN

Mumbai: The Goregaon police arrested spot boy Mustafa Khan (23), who posed as a film financier and conned a junior artiste into having a physical relationship with him by promising her movie roles and money.
Khan, who was at large for since more than a month, was arrested on Sunday and booked for rape.
The victim (22), who lives in Vashi, has a two-year-old daughter. Her husband, a driver, is bedridden for the last six months after he was injured in an accident.
As the victim was looking for work, a fellow artiste, Kundan Singh, told her about an audition at Motilal Nagar in Goregaon (W) on December 10, 2012. The duo went there and met Khan. “He introduced himself as the film financier. When the victim told Khan about her domestic problems, and he promised to cast her in his film and lend her Rs 50,000,” said inspector G Rekulwad.
As they weren’t called in for the audition, Singh left, but Khan kept the victim engaged in a conversation and later forced her to get intimate with him.
The victim claimed Khan got intimate with her on five different occasions in Motilal Nagar. Thereafter, whenever she called Khan for work and the money, he made excuses. On realizing that she was used, the victim lodged a first information report against Khan on January 16, 2013.
“Khan had no fixed residence and his mobile number was registered on a bogus address. Khan was nabbed from Wadala on the basis of his mobile phone location,” Rekulwad said. The police found that the room in Motilal Nagar belongs to a tailor.
The police will make an application to the Borivli court, requesting Khan’s police custody. He is currently in judicial custody.

 

#Mumbai-Ex-encounter cop planned builder’s murder


Ex-encounter cop planned builder’s murder

Vashi: A retired state police encounter specialist and a shooter were arrested between Saturday late night and Sunday morning in connection with the murder of Navi Mumbai builder Sunil Kumar Loharia.
Two men on a motorcycle had gunned down the 50-year-old builder in front of his office in Vashi’s sector 28 on Saturday morning, moments after he got off his white BMW. Local people had caught one of the shooters, Venkatesh Shettiyer, 35, from the spot while the other, Wazid Qureshi, 28, managed to flee.
Qureshi was arrested from his home in Mumbra. And Emmanuel Amolik, the 62-year-old retired police officer, was arrested from Naigaon in Dadar late on Saturday night. Police said Amolik had paid a “supari” to Qureshi and Shettiyer to kill Loharia.
Navi Mumbai police commissioner AK Sharma said Shettiyer had spilled the beans during interrogation. “We arrested both based on what he told us. Investigations are on to find out if someone else is involved,” he said.
Amolik, an encounter specialist with the Maharashtra police, served at Thane, Solapur, Nagpur, and Mumbai before retiring as an inspector in 2011. He was an inspector in Navi Mumbai in 2004 and the CID had arrested him in 2003 in connection with a fake encounter.
“Qureshi has several cases registered against him in Mumbai,” Sharma said. “Qureshi and Amolik know each other for the past several years.”

All three have been booked. A Belapur court on Sunday sent Shettiyer and Amolik to police custody till February 22. Qureshi will be produced in court on Monday.
Additional commissioner Fateh Singh Patel said Amolik told them that he had a fight with Loharia more than a month ago over parking at Sanpada’s Moraj Circle on Palm Beach Road.
“He told us that Loharia had flashed his gun and threatened to kill him. He said he wanted to avenge his insult,” the officer said. “In fact, Amolik told us that he would have killed Loharia that same day if he had a gun. We are trying to find out how much he paid Qureshi and Shettiyer.”
Another officer from the Vashi police station said Shettiyer had told them on Saturday that they killed Lohariya over some property dispute in Kharghar. “After Qureshi and Amolik were arrested he, however, told us that he lied to mislead the investigators. We are questioning many people and trying to find out the real reason behind the murder.”
Loharia’s family conducted his last rites on Sunday evening. One of the family members said they were unhappy with the way the police were investigating the matter. Loharia’s son Sunny Kumar said the crime branch of the Mumbai police should investigate. He has written a letter to the chief minister as well, he said.
“We have given the names of a couple of builders and architects who we feel could be involved,” he said. “On Saturday, I got a call on my mobile phone asking me not to name a particular builder. I have told this to the police, but they seem very casual about it.”

#India- 5-year-old girl raped, strangled in Navi Mumbai #WTFnews #Vaw


CHILDRAPE

Express news service : Mumbai, Thu Jan 24 2013,

In an incident that sent shockwaves across Navi Mumbai, a five-year-old girl, who had gone missing on Tuesday evening, was found dead outside her residence in Vashi in the early hours of Wednesday. Medical reports say the child was raped. The police are interrogating the building watchman where the child used to stay with her parents.

The police said the girl�s parents returned home from work on Tuesday evening to find their child missing. Her two brothers were playing with their friends some distance away from the residence and didn�t know where she was. The parents lodged a complaint with the APMC police late on Tuesday night.

�They returned home at around 2:30 am on Wednesday and found her dead body near their house. They rushed back to the police station to inform us and we sent a team with them. The victim�s body was taken to the Navi Mumbai municipal hospital for autopsy,� said a police officer.

The police began the probe working on the assumption that the accused could be a resident of the same locality and would have known when the victim would be alone in the house.

Meanwhile, the hospital sent its preliminary medical report to the police late on Wednesday night. �The reports have confirmed that the victim was raped. We have registered a complaint of murder and rape under the Indian Penal Code and relevant sections of the Protection of Children from Sexual Offences Act,� said Navi Mumbai Police Commissioner A K Sharma.

Opinion on cause of death has been withheld pending further examination.

�We suspect that she was strangled to death. Apart from the injuries to the victim�s private parts and some bruises near the mouth, there were no other external injuries,� Sharma said.
