The situation is reportedly under control at present. The Benzimidazole gas which is not very dangerous, has not spread to other places.

"Situation under control now. The two persons who died were workers and were present at the leakage site. Gas has not spread anywhere else," Uday Kumar, Inspector, Parwada Police Station, was quoted as saying by a news agency.

Chief Minister YS Jagan Mohan Reddy has sought information about the incident, his office said this morning. "The accident is confined to a department in which there is a reactor. There is no need to panic. The district collector has ordered an inquiry into the matter," read the statement by the Chief Minister's office.

Former Chief Minister Chandrababu Naidu conveyed his condolences to the families of the deceased through his tweet. 

This incident comes two months after around 11 people, including two children were killed and almost 1000 were sick due to the gas leak at a chemical plant- LG Polymers facility in Vishakhapatnam.
