Three persons from Cine Vista film studio have been booked for causing death by negligence in connection with the fire that broke out in the studio premises last month, a senior police official said today.
Based on the report submitted by the fire brigade, an FIR was registered against two co-owners and a manager of the studio at Park site police station yesterday, he said.
They have been booked under section 304A (causing death by negligence) and other relevant sections of the IPC, the official said, adding that no arrest had been made so far.
A 20-year-old television production unit employee, Gopi Verma, had died in the fire that broke out at the studio in suburban Kanjurmarg at around 8pm on January 6.
His body was found in the burnt debris a day after the fire.
