The municipal authorities also informed the Rajiv Gandhi International Airport (RGIA) about the incident so that flights coming into the area could be diverted.

"The situation was brought under control by 9.50 PM", he said, adding that no casualties were reported. He said the alert official machinery had ensured that nobody was injured.
