Another Dry Spell for ATMs Across Mumbai?
ATMs across the city, especially those in the western suburbs, seem to be running low on cash for the last one week.
Whether or not this is still an after-effect of demonetisation, the few functioning ATMs have been witnessing long queues, with people sharing their annoyance over the trouble caused and the difficulty in getting their own money.
Andheri resident Saalim Khan (26), who owns a garment factory in Sewri, said, “None of the ATMs around my factory had any money in them when I tried last week. Even the lines outside the ATMs near my house have been unusually long.”

The Pandya brothers – Hardik and Pandya – are enroute to stardom, at least in the Indian Premier League. If they continue their good form, they will surely replace the other brother duo of Yusuf and Irfan Pathan and become the new poster boys of Indian cricket from Baroda.
Younger brother Hardik Pandya's pyrotechnics against KKR saw him notch up a 23-ball 29 to anchor his team to a win. Then it was the turn of elder brother Krunal, who played a lovely cameo as his 37 off 20 balls was largely instrumental in Mumbai Indians knocking off a tricky target of 159 vs Sunrisers Hyderabad on April 12.

Antop Hill police said the incident took place on Monday. The accused, Venkatesh Devendra, who works as a mechanic, had been stalking his neighbour Jyothy Devendra.
On Monday evening, Devendra requested Jyothy to meet him at the local temple. During the meeting, Jyothy, who was accompanied by Devendra's sister-in-law Roshi, made it clear that she wasn't interested in him. Angered by the rejection, Devendra tried to attack Jyothy. However, his sister-in-law intervened and warned him of dire consequences.

Mumbai Cop Steals Valuables Worth Rs 10 Lakh From Police Station, Replaces Them With Imitation
Here’s what happens when law enforcement becomes the lawbreaker. In a case that is one part ingenious and one part sheer outrageous, mid-day has learnt that the a head constable attached with the Kherwadi police station was booked, arrested and suspended last month after it was discovered that while serving as cashier and storekeeper at the station, he allegedly stole gold, silver and other items worth Rs 10 lakh seized in several criminal cases and replaced them with imitations.
The constable, identified as Yashwant Vitthoba Teli, was booked last month by the Vakola police for cheating wherein the complaint against him alleges that while serving at the Kherwadi police station between 2013 and 2014, Teli snuck away gold and silver jewellery along with mobile phones and cash that amount to R10lakh. He would then fudge the entries in the register to dupe his seniors.
