Nagpur: Apparently upset by the devastating fire at a rooftop pub in Mumbai, Yug Tuli of Mojo’s has clarified that his restaurant has absolutely no role in the tragedy. “It could part of a sinister design by some unscrupulous elements to drag the name of Mojo’s and connect it with the fiery incident. May be since we belong to Nagpur, we are being made soft target,” Tuli lamented.

In a statement released to the press, Tuli said, “We are extremely saddened by the incident. Mojo’s has all its fire safety norms, certificates and procedures in place. The staff are thoroughly trained in fire drills hence they were able to evacuate all our guests and themselves out to safety with zero casualty. There were no cylinders on our premises. We are fully complying with the authorities to help in every way we can. Our prayers and deepest condolences to the families who lost their loved ones in this gruesome incident.”

Tuli asserted that Mojo’s has absolutely no role in the awful tragedy and that no casualty was reported in the restaurant.

It is pertinent to recall that at least 14 people died and several others injured in a tragic fire that engulfed a multi-storey building in Kamala Mills late Thursday night. What was meant to be a casual unwinding session post office on a weekday turned into an absolute nightmare for those inside the building – a nightmare that has not just shocked the Millenium City but stunned the entire country as well.

The fire reportedly started at a rooftop restaurant of the Trade House building and spread within minutes. According to sources, the fourth floor of the building – with an area of approximately 10,000 square feet – was divided into two parts. The two restaurants which operated here are One Above – owned by Sanghvi, and Mojo’s Bistro.
