The NM Joshi Marg police on Thursday arrested Jigar and Kripesh Sanghvi, promoters of Sigrid Ospitalia, in connection with the fire at 1Above restaurant in Kamala Mills on December 29 that claimed 14 lives.

 The police said they detained the Sanghvis from Pune and the brothers have been placed under arrest.

The Sanghvi brothers, who were on the run since the incident, were arrested from the Andheri area here, Additional Commissioner of Police S Jaikumar told PTI.

The police had yesterday arrested Vishal Kariya, a hotelier, for allegedly giving shelter to the Sanghvi brothers and Abhijeet Mankar — owners of the ‘1 Above’ pub.

The trio have been booked for culpable homicide not amounting to murder and other offences under the Indian Penal Code. Police had also announced a reward of Rs 1 lakh for information about their whereabouts. Mankar was still absconding.

On December 29, fire had swept through the ‘1 Above’ and adjacent Mojo’s Bistro resto pub in Kamala Mills compound in central Mumbai, resulting in the death of 14 people.
