While 14 people at 1Above died in the blaze all 35 patrons of Mojo escaped with the help of staff after the fire broke out

Jigar Sanghvi and Kripesh Sanghvi, who co-owned the 1Above pub, who have been on the run for over 12 days and who were wanted in relation to the 29 December Kamala Mills fire which was responsible for the death of 14 people were finally apprehended by the police.

The three have been booked for culpable homicide not amounting to murder and other offences under the Indian Penal Code.

On 6 January, the police arrested Yug K. Pathak, the co-owner of The Mojo's Bistro and son of former DGP-level retired IPS officer K.K. Pathak. In order to pressurise the accused, police did not spare their families and managers.

Mumbai police spokesperson said they would be produced before the Bhoiwada court on Thursday.

Kripesh and Jigar are likely to be presented in court today, while the third partner Abhijit Mankar is still missing.

The police had, earlier, announced a reward of Rs 1 lakh for the whereabouts of the "1 Above" owners.

Kamala Mills fire that broke out at Mojo's Bistro spread to the adjacent pub that killed 14 people due to suffocation last month, reported Hindu. During investigation, Kariya revealed that when Sanghvis and Mankar saw the news flashing on TV channels that an FIR had been registered against them, they chose to flee. "There is every possibility that during removal of lighted charcoal from the segree (stove) and or transferring it into Hookah or during the fanning of the charcoal the flying burning embers came in contact with the combustible curtains/decorative material nearby and started the fire", the report stated, according to the Press Trust of India. "Karia said that the moment the accused saw that the FIR named only them and not the Mojo's Bistro owners, they left without disclosing their location", said an officer.
