Jaipur: The General Manager of the IOC Gautam Ghosh was arrested on Friday for showing negligence in the 2009 fire case.

Alongwith the GM, nine more people have been held for the same.

A devastating fire swept through an Indian Oil fuel storage and distribution terminal on the outskirts of Jaipur on Oct 30, 2009 which claimed at least a dozen lives and injured over 100.

The massive spillage of highly inflammable petrol being pumped at high pressure was reportedly the reason for the heavy destruction.
