Situation under control, minimal leakage at this point, says NDRF

Ten people have died so far and about hundreds more have been hospitalised after a major gas leak at an LG Polymers plant in Andhra Pradesh’s Visakhapatnam earlier today.

Emergency services have evacuated villages and cordoned off a three-kilometre radius

People were found lying motionless in lanes, ditches and near houses in visuals early today.

At least three surrounding villages were evacuated and officials went house-to-house.

The gas leak started at 2.30 am from large tanks

 “I pray for everyone’s safety and well-being in Visakhapatnam,” tweeted Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
