Mahanagar Gas Limited (MGL) and Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) received several complaints of a gas odour believed to be due to leakage from various parts of Mumbai on Thursday night.
A total of 29 complaints were received by the 1916 control room regarding an unknown odour, which has considerably reduced now.
Reportedly, the odour started emerging after 10 pm from places like Chembur, Mankhurd, Govandi, Chandivali, Powai, Ghatkopar and Andheri.
After taking the cognisance of the complaints, the natural gas distribution company MGL said that emergency teams have spread out to sites from where complaints have been received.
"Apart from the nine fire engines, four emergency vans of MGL have been mobilised. If you still notice the odour please dial 1916 gas leak," the MGL said.
