National Disaster Response Force (NDRF) personnel checked the sub-basement of fire-ravaged AMRI hospital Friday to check radiation leaks and found there was no danger of it.

The team comprising six NDRF personnel had entered the radiation room over 12 hours after the fire.

A team member said they had checked the room, but found there was no danger of radiation leakage.

"We checked with sensor if there was any chemical, radiological and biological radiation, but we think there has been no radiation," he said.

Nuclear scientists said the kind of radiation machines used in the radiation room, situated in the hospital's sub-basement do not generally pose any danger of radiation.

"There is no possibility of local people getting affected by radiation leaks," the scientists said.
