An ar­chi­tect has re­ceived an ex­tor­tion call al­legedly from gang­ster Ravi Pu­jari de­mand­ing Rs5 crore in Bhayan­der. The ar­chi­tect re­ceived the call on June 27 while he was at his of­fice in Borivli by a per­son, who iden­ti­fied him­self as Ravi Pu­jari, and asked him to shell out Rs5 crore, a Thane Ru­ral Po­lice of­fi­cer said. Ac­cord­ing to com­plaint lodged by the ar­chi­tect, whose name has been with­held, he also re­ceived a few more calls from dif­fer­ent num­bers de­mand­ing the same amount.

Ag­grieved con­sumers can heave a sigh of re­lief, as the Con­sumer Guid­ance So­ci­ety of In­dia (CGSI) will hold a con­sumer griev­ance re­dres­sal camp and milk test­ing drive on July 8 at Thane.

The camp — held in as­so­ci­a­tion with the depart­ment of food, civil sup­plies and con­sumer pro­tec­tion — will cover top­ics such as bank­ing, credit cards, fi­nan­cial ser­vices, air­lines, rail­ways, trans­port, food, med­i­cal ser­vices, gov­ern­ment ser­vices, RTI, weights and mea­sures, tele­com, con­struc­tion and realty, MRP, on­line pur­chas­ing and elec­tron­ics and mo­biles.

The lead­ing pro­fes­sion­als of such in­dus­tries will ad­dress con­sumers at the camp. To cre­ate aware­ness about the qual­ity of milk sup­plied, CGSI will con­duct live milk test­ing through its elec­tronic milk anal­yser, free of charge, and is­sue a writ­ten re­port of the anal­y­sis to con­sumers. Milk sam­ples will be brought by school and col­lege stu­dents.

“By or­gan­is­ing this camp in var­i­ous parts of the city, we are try­ing to reach out to more con­sumers and help them solve their prob­lems,” said MS Kamath, sec­re­tary, CGSI.
