The National Highways and Motorway Police (NHMP) on Friday safely managed an oil tanker filled with inflammable chemical seeped on highway near Mitiari Bhat Shah Beat of motorway
According to NHMP officials, the tanker was being carried from Karachi to Lahore with inflammable 2-Ethylhexanol (abbreviated 2-EH) chemical. It started pouring out due to leakage of supply pipe in the tanker which let the chemical flow on the highway and could cause serious fire incident.
The tanker driver Muhammad Riaz promptly called NHMP helpline 130 and informed about the situation where the patrolling team Tiger 3 officials responded to the affected people.
The team, however, informed the concerned authorities about the incident and continued the traffic flow without impediment by installing cones and accident boards to prevent traffic contact with the chemical and affected area of the highway.
The oil tanker was later shifted to a safer place far from the highway under the supervision of Admin Officer Mitiari. Moreover, the NHMP, fire brigade, Police mobile and ambulance were present at the moment.
