Bhopal gas tragedy victims have filed a petition for reissuing the notice to Dow Chemicals Limited, USA. A victim’s delegation also met Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan on Friday demanding compensation for the environmental loss due to the tragedy.
Bhopal Gas Peedit Mahila Udyog Sangathan Convener Abdul Jabbar said a petition has been filed by the organisation for reissuing of a notice issued by CJM Bhopal in January 2005 in wake of lifting of the stay in October this year. In January 2005 CJM issued a showcause notice to Dow Chemicals to reply that since they are the new owner of Union Carbide now why they should not be liable for the gas tragedy.
The organisation has also demanded that report of present status of a case filed by CBI in Delhi Metropolitan court in which permanent warrant has been issued against Warren Anderson and the sensitive gas tragedy file which at present is with Kochar Commission should be submitted before the CJM so that the hearing may proceed. Jabbar further said that a delegation led by him met Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan and Chief Secretary R Parshuram on Friday put their demands before them.
The main demands include that the criminal case of the gas leak tragedy should be heard in a special court so that the case can be completed speedily. The other demand is that the Indian Government should ask for compensation from Dow Chemicals for the environmental loss occurred due to the gas leak. They also demanded that a review of rehabilitation work and also the compensation amount should be done earnestly.
