India’s yet another radioactive leakage at Delhi’s Airport
On Sunday, a radioactive leakage from a “medical” shipment took place at the cargo terminal of Indira Gandhi International Airport of New Delhi. While the area was cordoned off by the authorities, the Atomic Energy Regulatory Board (AERB) team was rushed to the spot.
Lately the media and the indian authorities covered the incident calling it as a “false alarm”. This is not the first time India has failed to prove its nuclear radioactive safety. From radioactive iodine leakage at more than 700 times normal levels, and leakage of 100 kg radioactive sodium at a fast breeder reactor in Kalpakkam; the Narora Atomic Power station that suffered a fire at more than two of its steam turbine blades, damaging the heavy water reactor; to a major leakage in Gujarat’s Kakrapar in March this year, and many more unrecorded nuclear radioactive leakages have caused India to get refused its membership to enter the Nuclear Suppliers Group (NSG). The danger does not ends here, India’s Plutonium production capacity is also beyond its need.
According to Al-Jazeera news, India is also providing technical training to North Korean nuclear scientists on its soil despite UN sanctions over Pyongyang. With its amounting radioactive accidents, posing out a serious threat to the world, India remains in a denial of its failure of nuclear safety.
