Anyone who steps on it will be dragged down and burned. Scientists proved that this is a chemical reaction which happens due to the chemical reactions occurred there because of the wastes. The area is very molten and always burning. The area would look like a red fireball when seen at night times.
Like so many dogs, sheep which went that way died, the nearby people complained about it, but no action was taken. As a boy died due to burns there, the police declared the area as a dangerous zone. They put a board on this field not to enter the area. Some scientists are still conducting some experiments on it.
Prabhakar, a researcher, stated that it was because of the chemical wastes in that area. Tahsildar Ramesh Babu claimed that he would take further responsibility.
