In a new twist to the gas leak incident in a prawn processing plant in Balasore in which as many as 18 persons were taken ill, some minor girls were rescued while they were being taken away from the hospital late last night.

The victims, who were undergoing treatment at the Nilagiri government hospital after falling unconscious, were rescued by BJP’s Balasore MP candidate Pratap Sarangi and local residents.
