On December 28, 2017, a massive fire broke out in Kamla Mill’s 1 Above club where 14 people lost their lives. Upon investigation and enquiring, it was revealed that the club was illegal and was razed by the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC). They had served notices as well but the officials of 1 Above club ignored it.

After the fire incident, now we will investigate all the nearby offices to check if they have violated any rules. And if we come across any such structure, we will immediately take action against them,” Prashant Sapkale, G/South Ward, assistant commissioner.

He added that 1 Above club had the license but they had illegally encroached the open space where the fire broke out.

The BMC had razed the structure on May 27, 2017, which was built on the open space but the club officials rebuild the structure again violating the rules. For the same, they were served notices on August 4, 2017, September 22 and October 27 asking the club not to encroach the open space.
