NATION NEXT Exclusive: Yug Tuli to surrender before Mumbai police, says he’s innocent

Kamala Mills Fire Case
Yug Tuli in happier times

Nation Next has come to know from extremely reliable sources that Yug Tuli, one of the accused in Kamala Mills Fire Case, is about to surrender before Mumbai police on Tuesday (January 16) morning. Apparently, Yug was left with no option but to surrender, after the City Civil Court and Sessions Judge, Kalaghoda, Mumbai, rejected his anticipatory bail.

Yug, who belongs to Nagpur based Tuli family, is the co-owner of Mumbai pub Mojos Bistro, which was gutted in fire in the Kamala Mills fire tragedy that claimed 14 lives.

A close aide of Tuli family, on the condition of anonymity, told Nation Next that Yug, who got married last month, has slipped into depression because of the developments in the case.

An emotionally charged Yug told his lawyer Shyam Dewani that he was surrendering despite being innocent, informed our source, who claimed to have been privy to this conversation. When Nation Next spoke to Dewani, he refused to comment, saying that the case being sub judice, it was not appropriate for him to say anything. “Let law take its own course,” said Dewani when we goaded further.

Our source, however, informed us that Yug is supposed to have told Dewani that: “Even if I am innocent, I will have to allow the process of law to take its own course and thus I have made up my mind and I am now ready to surrender before the police authorities.”

Yug Tuli and Yug Pathak ? the co-owners of Mojos Bistro ? have been booked under sections 304 (culpable homicide not amounting to murder), 338 (causing grievous hurt by act endangering life and personal safety of others), 337 and 216r/w.34 of the Indian Penal Code.

Mumbai police arrested Yug Pathak, who’s the son of former Nagpur and Pune Police Commissioner KK Pathak, on January 6.

The prosecution claimed in the court that the fire started at Mojos Bistro due to flying charcoal blocks of hookah. The eyewitnesses and the fire brigade are said to have substantiated the prosecutions claim.

On January 8, Tuli was reportedly spotted at Rajiv Gandhi Hyderabad International Airport where he was captured in the CCTV footage of the airport.

While the Kamala Mills fire tragedy claimed the lives of 14 people in Mumbai on December 29, 2017, more than 12 were injured after a massive fire broke out in the Kamala Mills compound.
