Event details

Panic gripped Haiderganj locality of Bazarkhala in old city following ammonia gas leakage after explosion in a pipeline in a private cold storage on Tuesday. Police said no casualty was reported, but locals complaint of irritation in eyes and choking feeling. "Around 12pm, the control valve of a pipeline carrying ammonia inside Haryana oil mill (cold storage) exploded while the chemical was being transferred from a storage facility," said chief fire officer Vijay Kumar Singh. The mill workers took control of the situation and blocked the passage, he added. "The mill does not have a no-objection certificate from fire department," he added. ASP (West) Vikas Tripathi said, "The owner had licence for oil mill but ran a cold storage which is being probed." Shopkeepers of a plaza nearby and residents of apartments heard a blast like a fire-cracker and informed police. Apart from minor eye irritation and breathing difficulties, there was not much discomfort, said police. Residents claimed that the oil mill was covertly functioning as cold storage. Last year also a fire had broken out and lasted three days. Mohammad Saad, who owns a bakery, said, "Around 12pm, when I was cleaning my shop, I heard a blast. Within seconds, labourers of factory were seen vomiting and running out Even my eyes started tearing." Ahmed Shafiq, a resident of Ansh Apartment adjacent to the factory, told TOI that the toxic gas spread to his flat, prompting his 65-year-old father to complain of chest pain and breathing trouble.
