Kamala Mills fire tragedy: Court rejects bail pleas
It was one of the ugliest of the blaze in metropolitan Mumbai.
Hearing the Kamala Mills case, a metropolitan magistrate court on Thursday rejected the bail pleas of Abhijeet Mankar, Kripesh and Jigar Sanghvi, owners of resto-pub 1Above, and that of Yug Pathak and Yug Tuli, owners of Mojo’s Bistro.
It need be mentioned that fourteen people including 13 patrons and one staff member of 1Above perished in the fire at the Kamala Mills Compound on December 29.
The Sanghvi brothers were arrested from Bandra in suburban Mumbai on January 10 and Mankar was arrested the next day.
All accused have been charged with culpable homicide not amounting to murder under the Indian Penal Code. They appealed for bail after they were sent to judicial custody by the court.>
