Five workers received burns in fire that broke out in one of the units at Jawaharlal Nehru Pharma City on Sunday evening.

“They received five to 20% burns when the incident occurred at Laurus Labs while replacing sump line by removing solid waste connected to the sewage treatment plant. It is a minor incident,” an official of the Factories Department said on Monday.
