1. Black Rock Takes Over Project, Pays Old Builder Rs 20 Cr

Actor Dilip Kumar’s bungalow at Pali Hill will soon give way to a multi-storeyed building which will not only have his apartment but also a museum dedicated to his illustrious career in Bollywood.

Following a Supreme Court ruling in Dilip Kumar’s favour last month in a dispute between him and Prajita Developers Pvt. Ltd, the prime property will now be developed by M/s Black Rock which is run by restaurateur Kishor Bajaj of Badasaab and Hakkasan fame and his brother-in-law Ajay Ashar.

As per the SC ruling, Black Rock has paid Prajita Developers Rs 20 crore to vacate the property. Dilip Kumar and his actress wife Saira Banu will own 50 per cent of the building after the redevelopment.

6. Sea Link Suicide: Victim Did 3 Recces Before Jumping

The man who committed suicide by jumping off the Bandra-Worli Sea Link (BWSL) three days ago had made three other trips on the same route in the same taxi before taking the plunge, Worli police said. Cops are yet to identify the man and are going through records of missing persons in the city hoping for a lead.

“We did not find any phone or wallet on him. When his body was pulled out of the water, he was clothed in a torn shirt and underpants,” said Gajanan Desurkar, senior police inspector of Worli police station. Police said the man must have carried a wallet – he paid the sea link toll with cash – or a phone but feel these were lost in the sea.
