There are actually several causes...........
1)geologists opine that the civilization was located in a earthquake-prone zone.earthquakes of high magnitudes may have ruined the civilization.
2)the change of course of river Saraswati might be another potent cause.
3)floods from Saraswati river might have washed away the civilization.
4)examining skeletons found at excavation sites,it was found out that the skulls contain signs of heavy damage.From this it is inferred that civil war might have wiped out the civilization.
5)Aryan invasion could also be held responsible for the extinction of this civilization.
6)In course of time although other settlements developed considerably,this civilization didnot.It tended to conserve its heritage in an impractical way which led it towards an unexpected end.
A recent mystery is revealed regarding this case:by issuing c-14 dating to the skeletons,radioactive remains have been found in skeletons.It remains till now unexplained that why and how these skeletons were subjected to radioactivity.was there an atomic explosion or something?No one knows.
