Gas leak: Green court seeks report from AIIMS panel
An AIIMS panel, formed by the Centre after a chemical spill at the Tughlaqabad depot here, was directed by the National Green Tribunal on Wednesday to submit its report on the impact of the incident.
Around 450 girl students of the Rani Jhansi School and Government Girls Senior Secondary School, run by the city administration, had to be hospitalised on May 6 after toxic fumes spread due to the leakage.
A bench headed by NGT Chairperson Justice Swatanter Kumar directed Dr Y K Gupta, head of the Pharmacology Department at the All India Institute of Medical Sciences, to file the complete report based on his visit to the place.
The green court also asked the country's premier healthcare institution to submit a supplementary report and inform about the children who were affected from the leakage and whether they have suffered any serious health problems.
This is the second time that the AIIMS panel has failed to submit its report despite direction from the NGT.
