Srinagar: Police station Kothibagh here was gutted in an overnight incident but there was damage to records, officials said.
“Around midnight, a fire incident took place in first floor of Kothibagh police station building,” a police officer here told GNS. “Due to wooden nature of structures on the first floor, the fire spread to some rooms. The fire was controlled within few hours by efforts of fire department. Prima facie the fire seems accidental,” he said, adding, “As fire didn’t spread to ground floor, all the Police station records and articles are intact.” Damage took place to SP, SDPO chambers, allied offices and barracks on first floor, the officer added.
