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.

"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.," a Central Industrial Security Force (CISF) officer told IANS on condition of anonymity.

"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.

He said though the National Disaster Response Force (NDRF) was informed, the situation was under control and there was no need to panic.

The officer said that Fortis Hospital procures the consignment of sodium iodide class 7 category liquid on a regular basis.
