Agro-chemical major UPL Ltd on Tuesday said that two workers died and 26 were injured after a "serious fire" broke out at its Jhagadia plant in the Bharuch district of Gujarat.
Other than that, five workers were missing, according to the company.
UPL said the accident might have happened due to fire/explosion in the solvent, but did not rule out a "foul play". The company meanwhile said it would offer compensations to dead and affected workers.
In a regulatory filing, UPL said that "unfortunately, a serious fire broke out in a plant in shutdown condition in the early hours of this morning at our Jhagadia unit in Gujarat".
