Local Urdu TV channels quoted police as saying that several workers of the ice factory and people living in the neighboring houses got affected after the gas leaked from the factory in Bhalwal area of Sargodha district.

Following the incident, an emergency was declared in the area where police and rescue teams launched a search operation in the neighboring locality and rescued people who had fallen unconscious in their houses.
