Ammonia gas leak: 4 killed, 11 injured near Rajpura in Patiala 


Patiala: Four persons were killed and 11 others took ill after ammonia gas leaked at a processing unit following an explosion in Punjab’s Patiala today, police said. The incident took place at around 1.30 AM, they said.

The incident took place inside a unit of Himalaya Fresh located on Shambhu Ghanaur Road in which four persons were killed on the spot while 11 others sustained serious injuries. Out of these, four are said to be critical. They have been admitted to the government Rajendra Hospital at headquarters.

Before the gas leak, a blast was heard suggesting that one of the cylinders filled with ammonia might have exploded inside the processing unit, police said.

As the blast was heard at a nearby village, locals from there rushed to the unit, they said.

The ill people were rushed to the nearby hospital where four of them were declared brought dead, police said.

Senior officials of the administration also rushed to the spot to oversee operations.

 According to the villagers, they heard a blast after which reports of ammonia leak started pouring in during the wee hours of Tuesday morning. Panic struck the village, following which the villagers moved away from the unit where the incident had occurred, said Gursharan Singh, one of the villagers.
Meanwhile, the administration has called for a team of national disaster response force NDRF to take over the operations at the incident spot.
