Kupwara: Panic gripped Qaziabad area of Kupwara following emission of gaseous substances from soil while digging the tube well in the area.
The emission gaseous substances was reported at a newly-dug tube well at Sehpora village of Qaziabad in north Kashmir’s Kupwara district.
“Most methane produced naturally is offset by its uptake into natural sinks. Anthropogenic methane production, however, can cause methane concentrations to increase more quickly than they are offset by sinks”, he added.
