Vishakhapatnam/IBNS: At least two people died after gas leaked from a pharmaceutical unit in Visakhapatnam in the wee hours of Tuesday.

Those who died worked at the Visakhapatnam unit of the firm - Sainor Life Sciences, police told NDTV, adding that the situation is now "under control".  

The pharmaceutical unit in the industrial port city's Parwada area was shut down immediately as a precautionary office after the leakage of benzimidazole gas was reported at around 11:30 pm, officials told the news channel.

  The latest gas leak episode occurred nearly two months after  a toxic gas leaked from a chemical plant in Visakhapatnam.

Nearly 800 people were admitted to hospital after a Styrene gas leaked from an LG Polymers facility located in the city.

At least 11 people were killed in the incident.
