Mumbai blaze: A petition demands CBI inquiry in Kamala Mills case
Mumbai : A petition has been filed in the Bombay High Court demanding a CBI probe in the December 29 Kamala Mills fire incident that killed 14 people.
18-year-old Garv Sud, a city resident studying in the United Kingdom, also asked court to attach culpable homicide charge under Section 304 of the Indian Penal Code against the owner of Kamala Mills.
The petition was filed today. We will wait for it to come up for hearing once the high court resumes after the vacation on January 4," Sud's lawyer Prakash Wagh said.
"It is not enough to just book the owners of '1 Above' pub for culpable homicide and negligence. The owners of Kamala Mills are equally responsible for the incident. The CBI should be asked to probe the incident," the petition said.
The Mumbai Police has nabbed two managers of the '1 Above' pub, but the main accused - the pub's owners - are still at large.
