  • Kamala Mills fire Opposition blames corruption in Mumbai civic body demands CBI probe

Fire brigade officials today said that it was probing whether flames during a fire stunt by a bartender, burning coal used for hookah or a short circuit led to the tragedy. He said, "There are 24 wards in Mumbai and three teams are checking the restaurants, pubs and the restaurant in all the wards".

Since most hotels and restaurants have sold tickets and invested in New Year events, it is not possible to cancel them, he said.

Fourteen persons died in a fire at a roof-top pub in Kamala Mills compound in Central Mumbai yesterday.

"In various zones, the DHOs (Deputy Health Officer) under whom health inspectors work, carry out surprise inspections to check compliance with norms", a senior official of the corporation told PTI.

"Dotondhe said that the team is throwing it down on the unauthorized structures".

The standing committee members in the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) too raised the issue of the fire, demanding answers from the administration. The cause of the fire is not clear yet however, the fire started after 12.30 am at the 1 above a pub. Action was taken against 314 restaurants; 417 illegally stored LPG cylinders were seized.

The teams will inspect all restaurants in their respective wards and ensure they are fire-compliant, the message said. The housing and urban affairs minister said rampant construction and flouting of fire and safety norms was turning the national capital into tinderbox. Action was taken against illegal encroachments by the famed Wilson Gymkhana, Islam Gymkhana, Catholic Gymkhana and Parsi Gymkhana on Marine Drive in Mumbai. "The case will be registered against those found guilty", Thackeray said.

According to latest reports, a police complaint has been filed against the owner of "One Above" restaurant for negligence.

Police said they were in the process of issuing lookout notices against the other accused.

In this fierce fire, 14 people lost their life and 21 were injured.

"We advise people to go to restaurants which are not crowded".
