No explosives in hotel blast

Police denied the role of any explosives behind the blast at Hotel Nezone, located at Garchuk in Guwahati. A person sustained injuries in the incident that occurred at 9-10 pm on Sunday evening. Parts of the hotel were gutted in the fire following the high intensity blast.

Police and forensic sources confirmed the cause of the blast as high temperature inside the locked ground floor that housed air conditioners, invertors and other electric appliances. It may be recalled here that on January 6 the Guwahati city municipal authorities sealed off the hotel for not obtaining valid business papers. However, during the time of closure, the electric appliances were not turned off that led to the explosion inside the hotel.
