Bhopal Gas Tragedy

On December 2-3, 1984, a gas disaster occurred in the state capital of Bhopal. Three thousand 787 people were killed in this accident as a result of a leak of methyl isocyanate gas from the Union Carbide Factory. Following the gas scandal, Union Carbide Corporation paid $ 470 million in compensation to the victims, but the victims demanded more.

In this case, the Center has asked Dow Chemicals for an additional Rs 6 thousand 844 crore in compensation for the victims of the gas disaster. In December 2010, a curative petition was filed in the Supreme Court for this purpose, which was denied by the Court.
