The Mumbai Police and fire brigade teams are probing on four to five possible angles that could have caused the devastating fire at 1Above Mojo's Bistro at Kamala Mills compound in Lower Parel.

The possible causes being probed are a short circuit, fire triggered by hookah, cigarette butts and fire tricks by bartenders or from the kitchen.

So far, what has come to light is the lack of fire-fighting systems like fire extinguishers and the absence of proper safety exits.

"They lacked proper exits and extinguishers... there is negligence," Deputy Commissioner of Police (Operations) Deepak Deoraj said.

The Mumbai Police have filed an FIR in connection with the case and booked the owner of the pub for negligence and culpable homicide not amounting to murder.

An official of the Mumbai Fire Brigade said that, so far, they have not been able to ascertain the cause of the fire. "Investigation is in progress," the official said.

The MFB is probing if a NOC was issued or not and whether the eatery and pub complied with the NOC norms.
