Mumbai: City Police, probing the last week`s fire mishap at Mantralaya on Wednesday said as many as sixteen CCTV footages were partially damaged due to water pumped by firemen to douse the flames.

All the footages or recordings are usually stored in a control room on the ground of floor of the building," said a crime branch official, adding water pumped by firemen has partially damaged the CCTV feeds stored in the system.
