The fire that gutted three floors of Mantralaya on June 21 last year was due to short circuit and not sabotage, according to police.
This was revealed in a report submitted to Chief Minister Prithviraj Chavan by Joint Commissioner of Police (Crime) Himanshu Roy, sources said on Monday.
According to the report, the short circuit occurred in the IT department. The report has ruled out any foul play in the incident, sources said.
Chavan had ordered an inquiry after the Opposition raised a hue and cry, suspecting foul play and sabotage in a bid to destroy evidence and files pertaining to scams.
