New Delhi: A leak in a consignment of “sodium iodide class 7 category liquid” triggered panic at the Indira Gandhi International Airport (IGIA) here early Friday morning, a CISF officer said, adding the situation is under control.

“A consignment of sodium iodide class 7 category liquid reached the IGI Airport in Turkish Airlines around 4.35 a.m. As it was being moved to a secure place from where it had to be sent to Fortis Hospital, a leak was noticed,” a Central Industrial Security Force (CISF) officer told IANS on condition of anonymity.

He said though the National Disaster Response Force (NDRF) was informed, the situation was under control and there was no need to panic.

The officer said that Fortis Hospital procures the consignment of sodium iodide class 7 category liquid on a regular basis.
