Multiple people have been hospitalised after a gas leak at the Engro Polymer and Chemical factory in Karachi’s Bin Qasim.

Nineteen people were hospitalised at the Pakistan Steel Mills Hospital and 14 were taken to Jinnah Postgraduate Medical Centre. The hospital’s executive director, Dr Seemin Jamali, confirmed the cases and said they are all stable.

An unspecified number of people have been taken to two private hospitals in the area.

The company claims there are no critical cases and that the situation has normalised now. They say a pipe leak caused the incident.
