Mumbai, May 5 (IANS) India’s national capital is free of all radioactive materials in the open and the Atomic Energy Regulatory Board (AERB) has taken possession of all such pieces, a top official said here Wednesday.
The AERB experts have succeeded in recovering all 16 radioactive pencils which had led to radiation exposure in a scrap dealer’s shop in Delhi and consequently claimed life of one person.
“There is now no radioactive material anywhere in the open in the affected areas which were investigated,” the official told IANS.
“A team of experts from the AERB in Mumbai and New Delhi has also traced the root sources of the radioactive pencils which were found last month (April 4) in a scrap dealer’s shop in Mayapuri,” the official said.
