Civil Secretariat fire: FSL report rules out short circuit
SRINAGAR, July 19: The Forensic Laboratory (FSL) authorities have submitted its report regarding the recent fire incident in the Civil Secretariat campus to the government on Friday.

The FSL report indicates that the fire was caused due to kerosene oil and has rejected the initial claims of the authorities that it occurred due to the short circuit.

“Immediately after the fire incident the FSL experts had collected eight samples from the spot. However, they collected four more samples on the instructions of Secretary General Administration Department (GAD) Sheikh Mushtaq Ahamd who was appointed as the enquiry officer of the incident by the government. All the samples have shown that the fire was caused due to kerosene oil,” sources told a local news agency, KNS.

Director FSL Inyat U Khan confirmed that they have submitted the report to the GAD. “We submitted the report to the government within shortest possible time,” he said.

Fire had engulfed a two-storey wooden annexe at Civil Secretariat here on July 11, destroying official records of various departments. The Government had ordered an inquiry into the incident to be conducted by Secretary, GAD and had asked that inquiry should be completed within 15 days.
