Mumbai: According to the sources, Mojo’s Bistro’s owner Yug Tulli has surrendered before the Mumbai Police. If we go by the the investigation reports by Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC), one of the reasons that the fire had spread was due to the provision of smoking hookah and cigarette illegally inside the premises.
