Kamala Mills fire: Now a PIL seeks setting up of enquiry commission

Mumbai: A Public Interest Litigation (PIL) has been filed by former Mumbai Police Commissioner Julio Ribeiro in the Bombay High Court demanding setting up a judicial commission of enquiry in connection with the Kamala Mills fire incident.

A massive fire had broken out at the Kamla Mills compound in the Lower Parel locality of Mumbai in the wee hours of December 29, killing 14 people and injuring 12.

In an enquiry report submitted to the Municipal Commissioner by the Enquiry Committee, it was stated the fire started from the Mojo’s Bistro and not from ‘1 Above’ as believed earlier.

The report also stated that there were several violations of fire safety norms by both Mojo’s Bistro and 1 Above.
