A rooftop pub in Central Bengaluru has been fined Rs 5 lakh by the BBMP for violating fire safety norms and not complying with the building plan.

Attic, Lavelle Road, will have to cough up the penalty and faces closure, too. Lady Baga, on the same street, was also found guilty of the two violations. Lady Baga has a hookah joint and used bamboos that can easily catch fire, a senior BBMP official said.

Both the pubs will be served closure notices.

The violations came to the fore during a surprise inspection by Mayor R Sampath Raj on Tuesday. Many establishments were found to be functioning without a trade licence. The inspection followed the fire in a pub in Kamala Mills, Mumbai, that claimed 14 lives.

Two senior health officers of the BBMP's east zone, Krishnavardhan and Sagayan, have been suspended for not checking the violations.
