Mumbai News Highlights(September 18): The 100-km stretch of Mumbai-Ahmedabad highway between Ghodbunder in Thane and Dapchari in Palghar district, where former Tata Sons chairman Cyrus Mistry died in a car crash on September 4, has witnessed 262 accidents this year, claiming at least 62 lives and leaving 192 persons injured, police officials said. Officials say that poor maintenance of the road, lack of proper signage and absence of speed curbing measures too are among the factors responsible for the high number of accidents.

Meanwhile, in his first reaction after the Vedanta-Foxconn project was shifted to Gujarat, Shiv Sena president Uddhav Thackeray on Saturday asked the Shinde-Fadnavis government to introspect on its own shortcomings, rather than blaming the previous Maha Vikas Aghadi (MVA) for Maharashtra losing the project.
