Gas leak from Rashtriya Chemical Fertiliser plant in Chembur spooks Mumbai

Mumbai: A gas leakage was reported at several locations in the eastern suburbs of Mumbai on Thursday triggering panic among local residents who complained of foul smell and called the Fire Brigade officials for help. However, no untoward incident was reported due to the gas leakage, which has now been fully contained.

The gas leakage was reported from several areas including Powai, Chembur, Mankhurd in the eastern Mumbai.

It was later found that the gas leakage started at the Rashtriya Chemical Fertiliser plant in Chembur.


Several users from Mumbai took to Twiter and complained of a very strong nauseating typical gas chemical smell throughout Parle West and other areas. Responding to it, Mumbai Police directed them to address their grievances to Thane Rural Police on their control room contact no. 02225342784.

After several complaints, officials from Fire Brigade and Maharashtra Pollution Control Board rushed to investigate the nature and source of the gas leakage.

Mumbai civic body - Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) - later confirmed that the leakage started in the Rashtriya Chemical Fertiliser's Chembur plant but added that it has been fully contained.
