Centre confirms poisoning at Kaiga


Making a suo motu statement in the Lok Sabha, Minister of State in the Prime Minister’s Office, Prithviraj Chavan, said an interim report of the National Power Corporation of India Limited (NPCIL) into the causes of radioactive contamination has indicated that heavy water containing tritium was “deliberately added to the drinking water cooler with a mala fide intent”.

However, he said there was no security breach or damage to the power plant and “all the systems are operating safely”. The Centre was reviewing processes and procedures at all nuclear power stations following the incident, the minister said.
