So far, it is unclear where the leak is coming from. According an official, manholes may have been the source of the gas leak.
Surabhi Malik, the deputy commissioner of Ludhiana, is quoted by foreign media, "We are going to collect samples from manholes. Methane and some chemical presumably reacted with one another in manholes.
Locallegislator, Rajinder Pal Kaur Chhina told foreign media that the event took place close to a milk store. People who came in the morning to buy milk collapsed outside, she claimed.
