Mojo’s Bistro owner Yug Tulli surrenders in Kamla mills fire

Mumbai: The owner of the Mojo’s Bistro Yug Tulli, who had been evading in the Kamala Mills compound fire case, today surrendered before the Mumbai Police, officials said.

“We have arrested Yug Tulli, after he surrendered himself before police today morning at N M Joshi Marg Police Station,” S Jaykumar, Additional Commissioner of Police ( Central ) said.

He will be produced before a court today, said Jaykumar.

With the of Tulli ― who had been evading arrest since last two weeks ― all the owners of the Mojo’s Bistro and ‘1 Above’ have been arrested, another official said.

On Sunday, Tulli was spotted at the Airport with his wife but disappeared before the police could him, he said.

The deadly fire, which had engulfed Mojo’s Bistro and the adjacent 1 Above pub, at the Kamala Mills compound on December 29 last year had claimed 14 lives.

Tulli, a Nagpur based businessman, and his partner Yug Pathak, the son of former Pune Police Commissioner K K Pathak, were booked under sections of culpable homicide not amounting to murder.

The action was taken on the basis of the Mumbai Fire Brigade’s report which had said the fire possibly started at Mojo’s Bistro due to the flying embers of a hookah and spread to 1 Above, he said.

Initially this offence was registered against the three owners of the ‘1 Above’ pub, managers, and staff, he said.
