Chief Minister N Biren Singh, while making a statement after the zero hour at the ongoing second session of the 12th Manipur Legislative Assembly on Monday, mentioned that the fire damaged around 75 per cent of the old CID office building but with timely response from Manipur Fire Service, no further damage was caused to the adjacent buildings of CRPF barrack and Southern Block Old Secretariat building. The Manipur Fire Service said that fire was suspected to be caused by an electric short circuit, he added. Most of the data stored at the CID office including for Crime Branch; Crime Branch (Technical); Crime Branch (Security); Cyber Crime had already been converted to digital formats  except for photographs of some prisoners. The data are saved in digital formats and the photograph of those in jail will be taken again, the CM added.
