New Delhi : A leak in a consignment of “sodium iodide class 7 category liquid” that had arrived from Istanbul triggered panic at the Indira Gandhi International Airport (IGIA) here early Friday morning, a CISF officer said, adding the situation is under control.

On the condition of anonymity a Central Industrial Security Force (CISF) officer said, “A consignment consisting of ten packets of sodium iodide class 7 category liquid reached the IGI Airport from Istanbul in Turkish Airlines flight number TK 716 around 4.35 a.m.”

“As it was being moved to a secure place from where it had to be sent to Fortis Hospital, a leak was noticed in four of the ten packets,” the officer said.
