Observing that the Mantralaya inferno has raised several doubts,BJP president Nitin Gadkari on Friday demanded a thorough probe into the Mantralaya inferno in Mumbai by a sitting or a retired judge of the Supreme Court.

Gadkari was talking to journalists after leading the Nagpur leg of the party’s countrywide jailbharo stir.

“It’s the first such incident in the state’s history when fire gutted not one or two rooms but three floors in a place as critical and important as Mantralaya. The government must clear all doubts by getting the matter probed by a sitting or a retired judge of SC,” he said.

Gadkari said,“The incident has hit the credibility of the state government. More importantly it has happened at a time when inquiries were in progress in some major scams and other controversial issues of the state government,including Adarsh and Lavasa.”
