Since 2013, the sinking of a naval submarine remains unsolved despite the then Defence Minister AK Antony saying in parliament that he suspected enemy action! India’s mainstream media [MSM] cares two hoots about this.
Rafique Malik Tejani, a pillar of Mumbai’s 5-star-cocktail circuit has been accused of being in cahoots with the likes of Dawood Ibrahim and others time and again. The 3-year-long cover-up was achieved through the July 2016 so-called suicide of a shady media hack blackmailer.
Tejani reportedly had a suspect role in the enemy action that sank Mumbai’s guard-ship submarine – Sindhurakshak in 2014. The matter was exposed for the nth time in 2016. No action was taken!
Instead of being hauled up before the law, Tejani and the company Metro House – headed by him – have allegedly usurped property owned by Mumbai Port Trust.
The crimes are being committed with impunity – thanks to ‘cooperative operating methods’ of the ‘yellow-section’ of India’s Mainstream Media [MSM]. The controls are in Karachi, Islamabad and Beijing!
There is worse.
The third most important case pertains to Zakir Naik – who is having a jolly time abroad. Mumbai cops keep pretending to attempt nabbing Naik.
It is one of the most vain cover-up attempts – with the help of former Mumbai cops occupying pivotal position in Saudi Arabia! 
Finally, there is India’s most wanted terrorist fugitive Dawood Ibrahim.
Ibrahim is said to be linked to India’s Vigilance Commissioner for Banking Operations – TM Bhasin.
Bhasin is involved in a lot worse!
Among other things, Bhasin has been suspected of being in cahoots with international terrorist criminal Dawood Ibrahim to destroy India’s finance sector by mounting an attack on India’s international banking showpiece – the Bank of Baroda.
For further details on criminal banker Bhasin’s financial misdemeanours, download and read:
Dawood’s Mumbai based accomplices are linked to an Rs.2, 60, 00,000 crores scandal tied to the Mumbai’s Port Trust. Top 5 newspapers of Mumbai carried a fallacious report about the building now called Metro House.
The plinth area of Metro House on whose ground floor a beer-joint Café Mondegar is located is 1457 square metres [a little over 14,500 square feet]. Upon this plot, 4 floors totally measuring some 57,000 square feet have been erected. The rough per-square-foot price in the area is Rs.1, 00,000. The calculable commercial value of the building on that basis is Rs.5.70 crores. But a mere 20 sq ft shop abutting the pavement has a value of Rs.3 crores. On that basis, the conservative commercial value is at least 1000 times more or simply, Rs.5.70 lakh crores!
Metro House is situated within a 1 km radius of the offices of the Maharashtra state’s Director General of Police, the 26/11 Pak Terrorism victim Taj Mahal Hotel and Leopold Cafe, the biggest Jewish shrine of worship in Mumbai, besides the State Legislative Assembly and Secretariat.
Café Mondegar – a beer joint – frequented by the rich young crowd – was about to be evicted on April 19 2015, reports believed to have been planted by a media racketeer masquerading as a journalist Saumit Sinh, said.
The originally planted news item dated April 17 2015:
The Times of India had to eat humble pie by publishing this report on April 21 2015 – because its sister publication Mumbai Mirror had published a report on April 18 2015 saying Mondegar would be evicted.
Eviction proceeding against the iconic Metro house in Colaba that houses Cafe Mondegar, did not begin on Monday [April 20 2015].
[The above paragraph implied the eviction was scheduled for April 20 2015.]
Metro House, a lease holder of the property, and other tenants had received a notice for termination of lease agreement by Mumbai Port Trust (MbPT) last November 2014 and respondents have reply within six months.
Cafe Mondegar, an iconic watering hole, now faces closure. The restaurant and pub is among the 23 tenants of the Metro House in Colaba which was issued a lease termination letter by Mumbai Port Trust (MbPT) in November last year for violation of lease norms.
The occupants of the building, including Cafe Mondegar, were given time to vacate the property, and the deadline ends on Sunday, April 19.
The eviction notice, served on November 19, 2014, says that the lessee of the building, Metro House Pvt Ltd, has flouted every possible term of the lease, including multiple instances of illegal subletting and alterations, unauthorized constructions of mezzanine floors, lofts, installation of mobile towers, besides unpaid rent, service tax and interest. The MbPT has also slapped a compensation demand of Rs. 76,16,537 (including interest, service tax) which was supposed to be paid by the tenants within one month after they received the notice.
Ex-Mumbai Port Trust chairman Ravi Parmar said, “We have served a notice terminating the lease of Metro House. After the notice period expires on April 19, we will start eviction procedure.”
The Metro House Pvt Ltd, which houses the famous Cafe Mondegar, has been issued an eviction notice by the Mumbai Port Trust (MbPT). The last day for response is slated as May 19.
The Metro House Mystery
The building and the land on which it [Metro House] is constructed have belonged to the Board of Trustees of the Port of Bombay since 1873.
In the Small Causes Court – a matter is actually pending in a contorted manner. In one of its rulings, the Small Causes Court says:
“Admittedly, the plaintiffs [viz. Cafe Mondegar and a small roadside shop Shankar Book Stall locked in a legal dispute concerning a shop within the Metro House building] are tenants of the premises, Unit No. 2, 5 and 6 owned by Metro House Pvt. Ltd., Mumbai.”
The Maharashtra Rent Control Act 1999 declares in its own text at Section 3 that its provisions do not apply to a premises owned by the government or by a local authority and the Board of Trustees of the Port of Bombay is one such local authority.
Mumbai Port Trust’s lawyer has claimed ownership of his principals on the plot of land leased to Metro House since 1995.
Relevant excerpts from the notice issued to Metro House:
My clients … [owners of the building located on] a plot of land bearing RR No. 2100 [Old RR No. 1312] the Trustees of the Port of Bombay had granted lease by registered lease deed dated 4-4-1995 admeasuring 1457 sq. mtrs … for a period of 30 years commencing from 1.03.1991 and expiring on 28.02.2021. My clients Trustees Resolution No. 39 of 1991, the board accords [sic] its sanction for grant of fresh lease in renewal of expired lease of the above premises in your [Metro House’s] favour.”
The original lease was in the name of a Muslim Trust or Wakf that had ended on July 31 1986.
A copy of a sort of circular dated December 2 1986 on the letterhead of Khanbahadur Haji S. Meharbakhsh 1st Wakf-alal-Aulad about Aboobaker Mansion, 23-23B-25 Shahid Bhagat Singh Road, Colaba Causeway, Bombay 400 039 addressed to all tenants, signed by (i) Shaikh Abdul Aziz Meherbaksh; (ii) Shaikh Abdul Haq Meherbaksh; and (iii) Amjad Aziz Meherbaksh says:
We hereby intimate to you that by an irrevocable power of Attorney executed by us today appointed, constituted and nominated MALEK SULTAN ABDUL MALIK TEJANI and SHRI RAFIQUE ABDUL MALEK TEJANI as our attorneys to hold and manage overall affairs of our immovable property known as “ABOOBAKER” Mansion situated at 23-23B and 25 Shahid Bhagat Singh Road, Colaba Causeway, Bombay 400 039 with full powers and authority inclusive of recovering arrears and accruing rent/compensation and mesne profit from the Tenants/Occupiers of the property.
We have therefore to require you to pay the arrears and accruing future rent/compensation and mesne profit and all other charges to our said Attorneys and deal with them directly without any reference to us.
On 2nd December 1986, the Wakf and its Mutwallis had no claim of any sort on the building including any income derived from it.
In simple terms, Metro House was an illegal occupant claiming to be in possession of the building on the basis of a non-existent lease – which was renewed by the Mumbai Port Trust on 1-03-1991.
How can Mumbai Port Trust renew a NONEXISTENT lease?
The owners of Metro House are directly linked to the 1993 Mumbai bombings and the multi-thousand crore rupee Cobbler Scandal.
One of so-called subtenants of Metro House – Cafe Mondegar – reportedly was one of the sites of the 26/11 planning done by David Coleman Headley.
The owners of Metro House destroyed the career of an honest income tax official and hounded him for 12 long years.
Rafique Malik [a.k.a. Rafik] with the family name Tejani has sinister political connections that touch the 1993 Mumbai bomb-blasts, city-based criminals linked to Dawood Ibrahim who are all in turn linked to powerful politicians – like Sharad Pawar. Excerpts from an article published on August 12 2014:
[By blocking my Gmail account, Google has blocked this blog and hence helped the enemies of India.]
Excerpts from a Times of India report dated October 25 1996 P7 under the heading Shoe scam accused aided in the city’s1993 serial bomb blasts:
“During the arguments in the case, Public Prosecutor VT Tulpule contended that a confidential report from the Intelligence Bureau hinted that the accused persons [comprising Rafik Malik of Metro Shoes, Kishore Signapurkar of Milano Shoes, who owned shops in Karachi and Singapore] had used a portion of the money to fund the serial bomb blasts that rocked the metropolis on March 12 1993.
Excerpts from Times of India [Bombay Times] report dated October 30 1996 under the heading:
IT officer who raided Dawood Shoes falsely implicated. “Exactly 12 years after [income tax department assistant director] Manoj Mishra first exposed tax evasions [by Dawood and Metro Shoes] Mumbai Police has now begun unearthing the skeletons of the multi-crore fraud … known as the Cobbler Scam.”
“Justice VH Bhairavia of the Mumbai High Court …[observed in his judgement thus]: “It is clear that the complainant [Sadruddin Daya] who was designated for some time as the Sheriff of Greater Bombay … has gone to the extent of creating a false case against innocent officers such as the appellant [Mishra].”
“Mishra had been raided by the Central Bureau of Investigation. Daya had [claimed to have] handed over Rs. 2.5 lakh to the officer [Mishra].”
“Mishra had been suspended and convicted to rigorous imprisonment for 3 years and a fine of R.50,000 was imposed on him.” The verdict came in August 1995 [12 years after his conviction].
“Mishra’s lawyers argued that over Rs.2.5 crores were due from Daya.” Among the political links being investigated is that of former Maharashtra chief minister, Sharad Pawar.
Excerpts from an Outlook India report:
Investigations have revealed Tejani to be a director of the Rs. 500-crore Dynamix Dairy Products Private Ltd in which Pawar is believed to have a stake through the holdings of family members.

In 2002–03, the then Maharashtra Chief Minister Sudhakarrao made a statement that the state leader of Indian National Congress party and erstwhile Chief Minister Sharad Pawar, had asked him to “go easy on Pappu Kalani”, a well-known criminal-turned-politician now.
Sudhakarrao also alleged that it was possible that Kalani and Hitendra Thakur, another criminal-turned-politician from Virar, had been given tickets to contest election for Maharashtra State Legislature at the behest of Sharad Pawar who also put in a word for Naik with the police when the latter was arrested for his role in post-Babri Masjid Demolition riots in Mumbai.
Sharad Pawar is also alleged to have close links with the underworld don Dawood Ibrahim through Ibrahim’s henchman Lakhan Singh based in the Middle East and close relationship with Shahid Balwa, also a suspect in the 2G spectrum scam. In turn, Balwa has links with currently disgraced BJP leader Eknath Ganpatrao Khadse. It was alleged that it was Balwa who had applied for environmental clearance for two of the projects linked to Pawar linked to the kingpin in the stamp paper scam, Abdul Karim Telgi cited a link from the magazine Outlook.
Café Mondegar is run by the Rusi Yezdegardi clan since the 1930’s.
A member of the Yezdegardi family sought to evict a Shankar Bookstall located on its periphery since 1952 by filing a case in the Court of Small Causes at Bombay vide a suit filed under the Maharashtra Rent Control Act 1999.
The plaint cited Metro House Private Limited as the owners of the building to whom the café pay pays to a monthly rent of Rs. 14,761.65 which includes Rs. 7,909.36 earmarked for ground rent levied by the Board of the Mumbai Port Trust.
The Trial Court chose to dismiss the suit. It, however, stated in its ruling, “Admittedly, both the plaintiffs are tenant of the premises i.e., Unit No. 2, 5 and 6 owned by Metro House Pvt. Ltd., Mumbai.”
On two floors of Abu Baker Mansion – lodging houses are being run. They are said to be linked to Nigerian drug and weapons’ smugglers reportedly operated between India and Thailand. A few of them are in a prison in Bangkok.
A series of 13 coordinated bomb explosions carried out at the behest of international terrorist fugitive Dawood Ibrahim shook Bombay [renamed Mumbai later] on 12 March 1993, the first of its kind resulting 257 fatalities and 717 injuries.
The bombs were planted by his henchmen Tiger and Yakub – whose second name is Memon – the sect to which Dawood himself belongs to.
On the basis of India’s Apex court ruling, the Maharashtra state government executed Yakub Memon, on 30 July 2015.
Harvard educated Metro House boss Tejani was arrested in the 1993 serial bomb-blast case as one of the persons who funded the blasts.
The prosecution opposed his bail.
In a simple move, Mumbai Port Trust obliged Tejani by creating a fake lease deed that became operational from 1991 to hide the 1993 stigma.
Depending on the political equations in Maharashtra and the links of its underworld dons, top cops’ careers end up stinking or smell of roses.
Here are examples.
In May 2016, IPS officer Atulchandra Kulkarni assumed charge as the new chief of Maharashtra Anti-Terrorism Squad (ATS) – which – for all purposes is a posting of little consequence – these days.
Kulkarni replaced Vivek Phansalkar. The latter was transferred to the Anti-Corruption Bureau (ACB).
In January, he had been promoted to the rank of additional director general (ADG) of police – and thus came to possess the same rank as Datta Padsalgikar, currently Commissioner of Police.
Said to have serious differences with current Commissioner of Police Padsalgikar, Kulkarni had set his eyes on the post of Special Police Commissioner. He said as much in SMS messages to his friends in the press.
It was at that point that the athletic Padsalgikar handed Kulkarni – what Mumbai media hacks call the “French letter” posting of ATS Chief.
Incidentally, Padsalgikar has a Master’s degree in French literature.
But CM Devendra Fadnavis shot such plans down.
Incidentally, Javed is India’s top diplomat in Saudi Arabia – where Islamic agent provocateur par excellence – Zakir Naik is ensconced.
The same Mumbai police officers are play acting – saying it is trying to nab Naik!
