Kamala Mills fire: Follow norms while giving clearances: HC”

"We need to know their roles in the fire", said an officer attached to the NM Joshi Marg police station.

Identified as Vishal Kariya, he is believed to be a close friend of one of the partners of "1 Above" pub. "We have arrested Kariya and have recovered accused Abhijeet Mankar's vehicle from his possession", confirmed Deputy Commissioner of Police, Zone III, Virendra Mishra.

Ribeiro, 88, is the former police commissioner of Mumbai who later deputed as the Director General of Police in Punjab and Gujarat followed by a stint as India's Ambassador to Romania. Initially when we questioned Kariya, he gave a fake identity and claimed to be Vikas and not Vishal.

In his PIL, the retired IPS officer has sought the constitution of a judicial enquiry commission into the Kamala Mills Compound fire which broke out in The Mojo's Bistro and spread to 1Above and other adjoining rooftop establishments, trapping 14 to their death and injuring 55 others.

In its preliminary probe report, the Mumbai Fire Brigade had said the blaze had possibly started at Mojo's Bistro due to the flying embers of a hookah. It is also alleged that there was only one fire exit and that was too narrow to accommodate the large number of patrons.

According to a senior police official, Mojo's Bistro pub is owned by Pathak and Nagpur-based businessman Yug Tulli. Also, the passage between the two restaurants, Mojo's Bistro and 1Above was very narrow and Fire Brigade officials found it hard to use it as the flames had covered the area entirely, said the petition. On Sunday, Pathak was produced before the Bhoiwada court in Dadar which sent him to police custody till January 12.

The bail applications of Lopez and Bava are posted for hearing tomorrow.

In his third statement, Pathak told police he was aware that the renovation was illegal.

Earlier, the police had booked owners of the 1Above pub, Hitesh Sanghvi and Jigar Sanghvi, co-owner Abhijeet Manka and others on various charges, including culpable homicide not amounting to murder under sections 304, 337, 338, 34 of the Indian Penal Code.
