Delhi's Mayapuri residents exposed to high radiation
Friday, 14th May 2010
West Delhi's Mayapuri area is 'not a safe zone for human beings', environment body Greenpeace said Friday after a visit to the scrapyard where a person died after exposure to radiation last month.
"The investigation has identified hotspots with more than 5,000 times natural background radiation," a Greenpeace expert said after the team's visit.
ďA team investigated the shop and its surrounding areas in Mayapuri in which the first radiation leak took place. Two radiation experts, Stan Vincent from Belgium and Jan Vande Putte from UK, also accompanied our team and investigated the area.
