The FIR added that unidentified suspects set the opulent shopping and residential complex on fire. While their motive for setting the fire remains unknown, they have been charged under Section 436 of the Pakistan Penal Code (PPC).

Section 436 of the PPC states:

The committee is headed by another ICT district municipality. It also consists of Deputy Commissioner ICT Industry, District Emergency Officer Rawalpindi, Director BCS CDA, Direct EM CDA, Additional Director EM CDA and one co-opted member.

The commission will determine the cause of the fire and the extent of infrastructure damage. He will also find out whether there was a functional fire safety device and fire alarm system in the building.
