Kamala Mills fire: Anticipatory bail plea of Mojo's Bistro co-owner rejected

A Mumbai Sessions Court on Friday rejected the anticipatory bail application of Mojo's Bistro co-owner and investor Yug Tuli, in connection with the Kamala Mills compound fire.

Special public prosecutor Prakash Shetty had objected to the anticipatory bail plea. Tuli is based in Nagpur and had been absconding from 29 December, the day fire broke out in the compound.

According to the report of the Mumbai Fire Brigade, the fire possibly started at Mojo's Bistro due to the exhaust fan and flammable articles at Mojo's Bistro. The fire later spread owing to the cotton curtains, wooden bamboo sticks and tarpaulin. The fire then engulfed 1Above and gutted both restaurants, Shetty said.

Tuli's lawyer Shyam Dewani said the fact that none of the diners at Mojo's Bistro were killed or hurt indicates that the fire did not originate there.
