Police on Tuesday night arrested the CEO and two directors besides eight other officials of LG Polymers in connection with the styrene vapour leak at its plant in Visakhapatnam on May 7, which killed 12 people.

Visakhapatnam commissioner of police R.K. Meena confirmed the arrests to PTI.

The arrests were made a day after the high-powered committee, appointed by the state government to probe the vapour leak, submitted its report to chief minister Y.S. Jagan Mohan Reddy, which blamed multiple inadequacies on the part of LG and slackness of management over poor safety protocols and breakdown of emergency response procedures in the plant.
