Police officials at the spot

VISAKHAPATNAM: Two workers died and four others were hospitalised following benzimidazole gas leakage from the Sainor Life Sciences pharma company at Jawaharlal Nehru Pharma City (JNPC), Parawada in Visakhapatnam in the wee hours of Tuesday.
The incident took place when over 30 people were working in the pharma company. A total of six workers collapsed after inhaling the gas.
The deceased were identified as Narendra and Gowri Shankar. Among the four hospitalised, the condition of one person is said to be critical.
Though the exact cause for the leakage of the gas is yet to be ascertained, officials are suspecting that there might be some technical reasons.
District collector V Vinay Chand, police commissioner RK Meena and few others have visited the pharma company to ascertain the reasons for the gas leakage.
The mishap took place close on the heels of the styrene vapour leak incident from LG Polymers plant at RR Venkatapuram area of the city in the month of May. The incident had claimed 12 lives and over 500 people from the area were hospitalised.
The incident has triggered panic among the workers in the JNPC. However, the officials said that the benzimidazole gas was not much danger than that of styrene.
