RV Dayashankar, owner of Bengaluru's Kailash bar restaurant, where a massive fire broke out last night, has been absconding after a call from the police.
Five people were killed in the fire at the restaurant in the Kumbaara Sangha building in the wee hours of Sunday.
All the deceased were employees of the bar who were sleeping inside it when the incident happened.
The reason behind fire is yet to be ascertained and the matter is being investigated.
