The Bureau of Indian Standards' Mumbai branch raided a shop on Mira Road in Thane district to investigate the alleged violation of hallmarking of gold jewellery, as per an official release, reported news agency PTI.


A substantial quantity of gold jewellery without BIS hallmark and marking was seized on Monday from jewellery shop in Thane, it stated, repored PTI.


The jewellery shop in Thane was manufacturing, storing, and selling articles without the BIS hallmark and marking on gold jewellery/articles with the old scheme of four marks, repored PTI.


The violation of the Hallmarking of Gold Jewellery and Gold Artefacts Order, 2020, was detected. The violation of Section 17(1)(a) of the BIS Act 2016 is punishable with imprisonment up to two years or a fine of a minimum of Rs 2 lakh or both as per BIS Act 2016, as per the release.

In another case, more than 50 detonators in two boxes were found abandoned on a platform at Kalyan railway station in Thane district on Wednesday, a Government Railway Police (GRP) official said, reported PTI.

The official said the boxes were spotted by the GRP lying unattended on the platform No. 1 of the usually crowded station on the Central Railway (CR) route following which a dog squad and Bomb Detection and Disposal Squad (BDDS) personnel were immediately called to the spot, reported PTI.

The BDDS team took the boxes into custody and on opening found as many as 54 detonators (a device containing small amount of explosive) inside them, he said.

The Kalyan GRP has launched a probe though they were yet to register a case in connection with the seizure, said the official, reported PTI.

Senior police officials, including Thane city cops, visited the spot where the detonators were found, reported PTI.

Usually, detonators are used in Thane district for illegally catching fish in lakes and also for carrying out blasting operations in quarries.

Detonators are used to send shock-waves through the water, stunning or killing fish which are then collected, reported PTI.

Kalyan railway station on Mumbai city's outskirts serves commuters of both long-distance as well as suburban trains and is usually very crowded.
