A tanker carrying 22 tons of liquid medical oxygen from Jharkhand’s Bokaro to Bhopal overturned near Garhakota town in Madhya Pradesh’s Sagar district in the early hours of Monday, police said. The incident took place in Chanaua village on Sagar- Damoh road, some 220 kilometres from Bhopal, at around 4am, though no leakage was noticed nor were there any reports of injuries to anybody, said Sub Divisional Officer of Police (SDOP) Kamal Singh Thakur.
”A team of experts will be arriving from Bhopal after which the tanker’s LMO will be shifted to another carrier. It seems the vehicle overturned while trying to avoid hitting an animal. The spot has been barricaded, and a fire brigade team has been deployed there,” he added.
