    At the hospital, Chandra, aged around 50 years, was declared dead while the other three were treated and discharged later, he said.

    An FIR was registered under Indian Penal Code section 304A (death due to negligence) against R Systems International after a complaint was given by Chandra's son at the Sector 58 police station.

    According to the police, the company officials said sanitation workers had used some chemicals in the washroom to unclog the drains and the fumes from that may have caused the incident.

    "There has been no arrest so far and a probe is underway," the police official said.
