Not just in real life, Sanghvi brothers, co-owners of '1Above' pub, have disappeared from social media as well. Lookout notices were today issued against the Sanghvi brothers, a day after 14 lives were lost in a devastating blaze at the pub located in Mumbai's Kamala Mills. They are partners in Sigrid Ospitalita and Entertainment LLP, the firm that owns '1Above' pub.

Till Saturday morning, Facebook profiles of both, Kripesh Sanghvi and Jigar Sanghvi, were live. However, the Facebook accounts of the two were found offline in the evening.

None of their profiles were visible, meaning that they either changed their profile setting and made it private, or deleted their account. 


On social media, Kripesh went with the name Kripesh RM Sanghvi and his brother's display name was Jigar Sanghvi. Their profiles were visible till as late as 12 pm on Saturday. 

The last post by Kripesh was about an event that was scheduled to take place at the ill-fated restaurant that was gutted in midnight fire on Thursday. The New Year eve event, Illusionati (within your temptation), was scheduled to start at 10 pm on December 31.

On Friday, the police had booked the Sanghvi brothers, another co-owner Abhijeet Manka and others, under IPC sections 304 (culpable homicide not amounting to murder), 337 (causing hurt by act endangering life or personal safety of others) and 338 (causing grievous hurt by act endangering life or personal safety of others).


The massive fire that had swept through the pub left 14 people dead and 21 injured. The pub was run by 'C Grade Hospitality'.
