Delhi Govt has little role in radioactive scrap: Sheila

Delhi government has little role to play in taking any action with regard to radioactive material reaching a scrap dealer from Delhi University, Chief Minister Sheila Dikshit said on Thursday.



Bhubaneswar: Delhi government has little
role to play in taking any action with regard to radioactive
material reaching a scrap dealer from Delhi University, Chief
Minister Sheila Dikshit said on Thursday.

"Delhi University is a central university and does not
come within our ambit ... We have little role," Dikshit told
reporters here in response to a query.

The origin of radioactive Cobalt-60 found in west Delhi`s
Mayapuri area, which led to the death of one person, was
traced to the university`s Chemistry department.

Dikshit, who was here to attend a function, said Bhaba
Atomic Research Centre (BARC) was also looking into the
matter and efforts were on to ascertain how the radioactive
material reached a scrap dealer from the university.
