Jan 10 2018 by Desiree Burns
In a major development, brothers Kripesh Sanghavi and Jigar Sanghavi who were on the run since after a fire at their establishment 1 Above at Kamala Mill on December 29, have been finally arrested.
The three co-owners of the pub - Kripesh Sanghvi, Jigar Sanghvi and Abhijeet Mankar were in Kariya's suburban Juhu residence after the fire incident. The duo were later released on bail by a local court.
The police have recovered a high-end auto of accused Mankar, from the Juhu residence of Kariya (42), who was then picked up for questioning.
Police recovered a high-end vehicle of Mankar, which was found parked at Kariya's place, he said. Police have also announced a reward of Rs 1 lakh for information about their whereabouts. They'd been booked by the Mumbai Police under IPC sections dealing with culpable homicide not amounting to murder, causing hurt by act endangering the life or personal safety of others, and causing grievous hurt by an act endangering the life or personal safety of others.
Supreme Court could uphold OH voter purge effort
Most of the states supporting OH have Republican governors or legislatures; most of those opposed are governed by Democrats. The law says a state can not remove a voter from the rolls "by reason of the person's failure to vote".
They had been on the lookout for the three men, as well as Yug Tulli, a co-owner of another pub, Mojo.
Meanwhile, as a fallout of the Kamala Mills Compound fire, only one among 14 applicants got a nod for rooftop restaurant in Mumbai. Their bail applications will come up for hearing tomorrow.
The PIL filed by former Mumbai police commissioner Julio Ribeiro seeks a judicial inquiry into the December 29 incident and also a direction to the government and the civic body to carry out a fire safety audit of all eateries and restaurants in the metropolis. Joint commissioner of police (law & order) Deven Bharti said they had learnt the Sanghvis were likely to meet a senior lawyer in Bandra and laid a trap.
