    could be due to some restriction in the airflow (which is needed for CNG) or it's possible that there could be something simple like a blocked fuel filter.

    get mechanic's opinion, try to two or three. then tell us their comments.
    fault tracing is big art than solving problem.

    is the air intake opening half taped?
    did u check its carby?
    ofcourse you can't go through all things so better to consult some mechanic observe him closely and remember all things. share your experience with us.

    I had the same problem with my Khyber 97. It won't start on petrol no matter what and would start on CNG with out problems. I didn't run the car on petrol for a long time (actually in between I ran it very few times on petrol) so carburetor ran dry like Logas said.
