Citizens from several areas across Mumbai complained of foul smell on Thursday night.

Citizens, in a state of panic, started complaining to the fire brigade while some took to Twitter to complain. Reports of the foul smell came in from Chembur, Ghatkopar, Tilak Nagar, Andheri, Kandivali, Kurla and several other suburban areas.

A senior official from the disaster management cell said that the source of the smell is yet to be identified and several fire engines have been sent to various areas and plants to inquire about the suspicious smell. “There is no confirmation from any of the gas agencies so far,” the official said.

An official statement from Mahanagar Gas Limited said, “Since late evening, MGL has been receiving complaints of gas smell from various parts of Mumbai. Our emergency teams have spread out to sites from where complaints have been received. So far we have not come across any breach in our pipeline system which could result in leakage of gas.”
