Even though the nature of the gas and the exact reason for death will be determined after autopsies, it has been reported that the workers weren't equipped with safety measures like gears and masks.

The deceased were taken to Thunga hospital in Boisar where they were declared dead on arrival and the nature of the chemical was so grave that the smell of the gas had spread in the hospital premises and the doctors operating on the patients too felt nauseated and had to be given medical aid.

In the MIDC area, workers of other factories have also vacated the premises. Director of Industrial Safety and Health (DISH), Vasai, has carried out their inspection and a case of negligence will be filed on the owner.
