Assistant Manager (Revenue) of Titas Gas Zonal Marketing Office Khandakar Monjur Rahman said the gas supply has been cut off since 9am.
Upazila Nirbahi Officer Abu Nasar Uddin said one of the joints in the pipeline may have got broken and caused the leakage. The supply has been kept suspended to avert any accidents.
The locals notified the fire service about the leakage early in the morning after they had noticed water shooting up in the river.
Residents of the nearby areas are still in panic.
