New Delhi: Former Indian skipper M S Dhoni's mobile phones, which allegedly went missing during the fire incident at a hotel here recently, have been found, police said on Sunday.

"It was an error of judgement on the part of the person who took the phones. He and a couple of other staff had entered the cricketer's room to sanitise it. He took away the phones without knowing their ownership. When the police contacted him, he accepted and handed over the devices to us," a senior police official said.

Dhoni earlier filed a complaint alleging that his three mobile phones were stolen during the fire incident at Welcome Hotel in Dwarka on March 17. Dhoni, along with his Jharkhand cricket team, had on Friday escaped unhurt after the fire broke out at a five star hotel in Dwarka.

In his complaint, the cricketer alleged that he had left his phones in the hotel room when he had gone for breakfast downstairs. Later, when his staff went to pack his things, the mobile phones were missing from the room, they said.

A case in this regard was registered at Dwarka south police station.
