Mumbai News Highlights: Mumbai has reported 13 deaths over the last month and a sharp spike in measles cases. Until Wednesday, the city reported 233 confirmed cases, of which over 200 were reported in the last two months. This is the worst outbreak in the city in the last few years — in 2021, 10 cases and 1 death was recorded; in 2020, there were 29 cases and no deaths; and in 2019, 37 cases and 3 deaths were reported.

In other news, the Supreme Court will Thursday hear the matter pertaining to the felling of trees at Mumbai’s Aarey Colony site for the metro car shed project.

Maharashtra Deputy Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis on Wednesday said the state government would investigate why action was not taken in connection with Shraddha Walkar’s written complaint to the Tulinj police two years ago, in which she claimed her boyfriend Aaftab Poonawala had “tried to kill me” and threatened to “cut me up in pieces and throw me away”.

A fresh dispute has erupted between Karnataka and Maharashtra over villages bordering the two states. Chief Minister Eknath Shinde and Fadnavis on Wednesday said the Balasahebanchi Shiv Sena-BJP government wouldn’t allow an inch of land from the state to go to Karnataka. Their remarks came after Karnataka Chief Minister Basavaraj Bommai said his government was seriously considering claiming 40 villages in Jat taluka of Sangli district.
