please help!! maya fluid is not rendering inside a part-volume polycube

please i'm stuck here if anyone can help me out
here's the problem--

i'm actually creating an egyptian scene with some temple ruins and a nuclear blast, i created the blast with maya fluid and i wanted to show the light rays (GOD RAYS) in mental ray coming across ruins and temple (did it with sun and sky) so i did this by the part-volume and transmat technique(PLACING THE WHOLE SCENE INSIDE A POLY CUBE AND CONNECTING PART VOLUME AND TRANSMAT TO ITS SG NODE)
so i'm getting everything in render accept the fluid(nuclear blast)
i've done many tries but still m not able to get the fluid render.
NOTE--when i hide the poly cube then the fluid is visible in render--

Depending on your version of Maya, Fluids may not render with Final Gather, and may not interact with the parti_volume at all. There are various options in the Fluid itself and in your Render Options which can help address this. Which version are you using?
