Insiders say it appears the fire was started intentionally since a pile of partially burnt papers were found within the hostel premises. “Upon arrival at the boys’ hostels, there was a pile of semi-burnt papers in there. It seems that is where the students initially wanted to start the fire, but for some reason failed,” a source said.
