Elgar Parishad accused Gautam Navlakha's partner surrenders liquor bottles to police; says brought for personal use

Elgar Parishad-Maoist links case accused Gautam Navlakha's partner Sahba Husain has surrendered her liquor bottles and cigarette packets to police after the National Investigation Agency raised an objection over such items brought to the premises where he is currently under house arrest, an official said on Monday.

Husain, who is staying with 70-year-old Navlakha had brought two liquor bottles and cigarettes for personal consumption, the official said.

She had declared about the same to the NIA officials when they came for house search before Navlakha was brought there. She had told the probe agency sleuths that the items were for her consumption and not for Navlakha, who neither consumes liquor nor smokes, the official said.

The NIA sleuths, however, took objection to the items and hence, those were given into the custody of the CBD Belapur police, he said.

Mumbai’s weekend continues to remain hazy

Mumbai witnessed a blanket of smog for yet another weekend with a hazy skyline on Sunday, especially near the shores, that lowered visibility. The air quality of the city was in the ‘poor’ category.

Stagnant winds, the drop in temperature and suspended pollutants mixing with moisture in the atmosphere continued to be cited as the reasons for the haze.

According to the System of Air Quality and Weather Forecasting And Research (SAFAR), the city’s Air Quality Index (AQI) dipped to 293, just six units away from getting into the ‘very poor’ category. Last Sunday, the AQI was 200. The air quality is predicted to get worse in the days to come owing to the gradual decrease in temperature.
