Six victims of a bombing at an Indian restaurant in Mississauga are suing the owner and management for $1 million each in damages.
The restaurant owner and management knew or “ought to have known” there were security issues, said their lawyers during a Tuesday morning press conference at Diamond & Diamond in Toronto.
The plaintiffs allege they were “carnage” in a “turf war” between rival business associates.
The May 24 blast sent 15 people to hospital.

Two suspects entered Bombay Bhel at 5035 Hurontario St. -where two separate birthday parties were taking place- with an improvised explosive device (IED) and were seen fleeing in a vehicle immediately following the explosion around 10:30 p.m.
“This is a very serious investigation,” Peel Regional Police Chief Jennifer Evans said on May 25, adding there was no indication it’s a terrorist act or hate crime.
No charges have been laid.
