“As per the information available with us, the leakage was spotted at the oxygen tank which was supplying oxygen to these patients. The interrupted supply could be linked to the deaths of the patients in the hospital,” Tope told reporters.
He said the Maharashtra government will look into the matter and conduct a thorough probe.
“We will issue a statement later after the investigation is over,” Tope added.
A video of oxygen purportedly leaking from the storage plant has gone viral on social media since this morning.
Some relatives of the deceased COVID-19 patients have alleged that the “lowered supply of oxygen” claimed the lives of their kin.
