Mojo’s co-owner doesn’t get bail

Kamala Mills fire case

Mumbai : A sessions court in Mumbai on Saturday rejected the bail application of Yug Tuli, a co-owner of Mojo’s Bistro pub, in the Kamla Mills Compound fire case.

A massive fire swept through two roof-top pubs, Mojo’s Bistro and 1Above, located in Kamala Mills Compound in central Mumbai, on December 29 last year, resulting in the death of 14 persons. Judge A L Yawalkar rejected Tulli’s application, special prosecutor Prakash Shetty said.

Tuli had surrendered before the police in January after the court rejected his anticipatory bail application.

The police registered a case of culpable homicide not amounting to murder against the owners of the two pubs, the owners of Kamala Mills Compound and some civic officials. It is alleged that flying embers from hookah, served illegally at Mojo’s Bistro, started the blaze, and illegal alterations at both the pubs aggravated the tragedy. While a chargesheet has been filed, the trial is yet to start.
