The four accused, comprising three co-owners of 1Above pub and a co-owner of Mojo's Bistro, were produced before the Bhoiwada magistrate court in Dadar after their police custody expired on Wednesday.

Police have arrested eight persons so far in connection with the fire tragedy.

While the Sanghvi brothers were arrested from suburban Andheri on January 11, Mr Mankar was arrested the next day from Marine Lines area.

The trio had been on the run since the fire took place in the pubs located adjacent in the same building in the early hours of December 29.
