Vishakhapatnam (Andhra Pradesh) [India], August 8 (ANI): A three-member committee constituted by Vishakhapatnam District Collector (DC) V Vinay Chand on Friday concluded after an inspection that there was no threat from the Shravan Shipping Services warehouse in the district's Mindi area that stored 18,500 metric tonnes of ammonium nitrate.
"Vishakhapatnam district officials visited a warehouse in the Mindi area. A three-member committee was constituted by the DC. The panel felt that there was no threat from the compound.
