At least five people were injured.

The accident happened in Sequent Scientific Ltd in Boisar town around 7.30 p.m. when there were 17 people working in the plant.

"According to preliminary investigations, a pipe burst caused leakage of hydrogen sulphide gas in the plant premises," Boisar Police Station in charge U.D. Sonawane told IANS.

While four who inhaled the gas died shortly thereafter, at least five others were rushed to the local civil hospital, he said.

Out of them two continue to remain critical and the other three are out of danger, according to Sonawane.

The plant is located in the Maharashtra Industrial Development Corporation's industrial area of Boisar and further investigations are on to find out the cause of the gas leak.
