Amaravati: Neerabh Kumar Prasad, chairman of high power committee, appointed to probe into the styrene gas leak at LG Polymers in Visakhapatnam exuded confidence that the panel would finalise the report and submit to the government within the timeframe indicated by the government.

It may be recalled that styrene gas leaked from the LG Polymers and the government appointed a high power committee to thoroughly investigate and submit the report. As many as 15 people lost their lives in the gas leak incident.

The committee went through the 243 representations it received through email and 176 representations through telephone and whatsapp and they would be considered in preparing the final report.

The chairman said that the committee is yet to receive the response from the LG Polymers while some regulators have already replied.

In a series of visits to Visakhapatnam, the panel members interacted with many stakeholders and had even discussions with Dr Sagardhara, environmental engineer from Hyderabad, and scientist Dr Baburao through video-conference.

The panel would conduct some more meetings and hearings with the regulatory authorities concerned this week, he said.
