Earlier on January 19 in a somewhat similar kind of incident in Goa’s Chicalim village, two women were admitted to a hospital and hundreds of residents of the village were evacuated from their homes after a tanker carrying ammonia overturned on the nearby highway connecting Vasco City to Panaji. The incident occurred around 2.45 a.m. when the tanker carrying ammonia from Mormugao Port Trust to Zuari Industries Limited, both located in Vasco, overturned at the highway and gas started leaking from it.

Last year on November 20, two workers lost their lives after an alleged gas leak at the coke oven segment of the Durgapur Steel Plant (DSP) in Bengal’s West Burdwan district.
