Mumbai: All owners of the 1Above pub were arrested on Wednesday in connection with the Kamala Mills fire that claimed the lives of 14 people last month.

Mumbai police arrested the owner of '1 Above' resto bar, Abhijeet Mankar on Thursday, in connection with the massive fire in Mumbai's Kamala Mills that claimed the lives of 14 people last month.

Mankar had been absconding since the incident.

One Wednesday, two other absconding owners of the restaurant, brothers Jigar Sanghvi and Kripesh Sanghvi were arrested on the information provided by a Juhu-based hotelier Vishal Kariya, who was arrested the same day for sheltering the duo along with Mankar.

The police have recovered a high-end car of accused Mankar, from the Juhu residence of Kariya (42), who was then picked up for questioning.

During the interrogation, the hotelier revealed that he sheltered the trio at his residence.

Kariya had been booked under Section 216 of the Indian Penal Code.

The Sanghvi brothers were absconding since December 29 when the fire swept through 1Above and adjacent Mojo's Bistro resto-pub in Kamala Mills compound in central Mumbai.

Yug Pathak, one of the owners of Mojo's Bistro and the son of former Pune police commissioner K K Pathak, was arrested on January 6 in the case.
