A minor leak has been detected in the sulphuric acid storage plant in Vedanta's south Indian copper smelter, a government official said on Sunday.
Police opened fire on a crowd of protesters on May 22 calling for the shutdown on the grounds of pollution.
"A leakage was observed in the sulphuric acid storage plant. It doesn't look problematic, but we have decided to evacuate the storage tomorrow as a safety precaution," Sandeep Nanduri, the district's top administrative official, said on Sunday.
