As many as 42 students of Kasturba Gandhi Junior College for Women here were hospitalised after falling sick due to a gas leak reported on campus. The students were rushed to a nursing home nearby after complaining of difficulty in breathing, with some of them even starting to vomit. It is being said the gas leak started in the chemistry lab of the college.

There were no critical cases; most of them are fine now. We have registered a case of negligence and will be investigating the matter.”
