Many residents in Mumbai’s western and eastern suburbs reported an unknown odour, prompting rumours of a gas leak at the Rashtriya Chemical Fertiliser’s plant in the Chembur suburb, officials said on Saturday.

However, no confirmation has been received so far and don’t believe in rumours, tweeted BMC.

The Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation said that the odour was reported from Powai, Chembur, Mankhurd, Govandi, Chandivali, Andheri and Ghatkopar areas.

Responding to complaints on Twitter, Maharashtra Minister Aaditya Thackeray said, “We’ve got tweeted to about foul smell in Chembur and Chandivali. The @mybmc disaster control room is locating the source and the Mumbai Fire Brigade is operating as per SoPs.”

More details are awaited.
