Suvidya school: A trend-setter
Mumbai: Suvidya English High School, Andheri East, deviated from the beaten track during its recent annual function: It drenched the entire function in the colours of the North East. The idea had germinated in the mind of school Principal Rajesh Singh. It was his idea to make the ‘culture of North East’ the theme of the 9th annual function of the school. The hard work of the teachers showed in the performance of the young dance troupes comprising of students. Miss Renu Tiwari was the coordinator of the entire programme.
Mr Shishir Asthana, consulting editor of Business Chartered, and Dr Pankaj Shah attended the function as special guests.
Mr. VB Tiwari, the founder and trustee of the school, was also present along with other respected citizens. If all schools take such an initiative, the task of creating awareness about the society becomes that much easier.
Bank official held for fraud
Mumbai: An ICICI bank official has been arrested by Matunga police along with his two accomplices for allegedly masterminding a cheating and forgery case, in which Rs 49.28 lakh were illegally withdrawn from the ICICI bank account of a dead non-resident Indian woman last year. The case came to light on January 1, when the ICICI bank’s Chandigarh branch sent an e-mail to their Dadar branch, informing them about a withdrawal on November 11 and December 27, taking place from the account of a dead NRI woman Govind Kaur.
As the money was withdrawn from the Dadar branch, a trap was laid outside that branch after which one Sandip Kale, was detained by the Matunga police officials. On further interrogation, Kale revealed his real name as Balu Vitthal Gate and informed cops that he lives at Wadala. Kale alias Gate in his given statement to the cops said that one Rajesh Jamkar, helped him to make a fake account in Dhanlaxmi bank, where they have allegedly deposited the stolen money. Jamkar was arrested from his home and on his interrogation he spilled the beans on the mastermind, ICICI official Mahendra Gurav.
