Kamala Mills fire

Two weeks after the fire tragedy, the pub owners - Hitesh Sanghvi, Jigar Sanghvi and Abhijeet Mankar - continue to evade arrest despite the police widening its dragnet and issuing lookout notices for them. All three accused surrendered by themselves, still, they were booked under section 304 of IPC. The police got information of the whereabouts about Sanghvi Brothers from the other accused arrested by the police, said Virendra Mishra, DCP, Zone 3.

The Sanghvi brothers were hiding at the home of Vishal Karia, a resident in the Juhu area of Mumbai who was interrogated by the police leading to the duo.

Mumbai police spokesperson said they would be produced before the Bhoiwada court on Thursday.

However, Abhijeet Mankar - the third partner of the "1 Above" pub is still on the run.

The name of the upscale pub was also including in the FIR after it was found in the probe by the fire department that the fire started at Mojo's Bistro and spread to "1 Above" on the fateful night of December 29. Anticipating that they will go to meet the lawyers, a police team was stationed at the lawyer's house.

Another co-owner of Mojo's Bistro, Yug Tulli, a Nagpur-based businessman, yesterday filed a pre-arrest bail application before a Mumbai sessions court.

Police seized an Audi auto belonging to them from Karia's Juhu home.

On December 29, fire had swept through 1 Above and adjacent Mojo's Bistro resto pub in Kamala Mills compound in central Mumbai, resulting in the death of 14 people. During investigation, Kariya revealed that when Sanghvis and Mankar saw the news flashing on TV channels that an FIR had been registered against them, they chose to flee.
