33 years of Bhopal Gas Tragedy: Victims await justice

Bhopal (Madhya Pradesh), Dec 03 (ANI): Survivors and victims' families of 'Bhopal Gas Tragedy' in Madhya Pradesh's Bhopal are awaiting justice and government help even after 33 years of the world's deadliest industrial disaster, which killed thousands and left many terminally ill. On December 03, 1984, tons of toxic gas accidentally leaked from a pesticide factory owned by U.S.

multinational Union Carbide Corporation and was carried by the wind into the surrounding slums in Bhopal. The government recorded thousands of deaths from illnesses since the leak.

Many people still suffer from cancer, blindness, respiratory problems and immune and neurological disorders. U.S.

company Dow Chemical, which now owns Union Carbide, has denied liability, saying it bought the company a decade after Union Carbide settled its liabilities to the Indian government in 1989 by paying millions of dollar.
