Under the present law death due to negligence can attract only 2 years of imprisonment and as such there is no point in blaming it as an incorrect judgment. The law need to be changed with stricter penalty and punishment. Also the administration should also take the blame for allowing residential buildings around the vicinity of such a dangerous chemical plant.

Too little too late, and to only scapegoats. Main culprits the Head of Union Carbide and the local muncipal autorities as well as local politicians are still scott free.

The case right from the beginning has been badly handled. When Anderson visited Bhopal after the incident, rather than allowing him to inspect the site and discussing with him the terms of compensation, we did the foolish thing of arresting him as if he is some cheap goonda and immediately letting him go off to US without carrying out any discussion with him. Since incident of gas leak was an accident and not intentional, the law enforcement officers could only file a case for loss due to accident and could not prove any criminal act against Anderson as no such fact existed. After the tragedy rather than getting emotional and trying to punish the big boss of Union Carbide, we should have allowed Anderson, the freedom to visit the plant and stay in India and carry out discussion for compensation rather than focusing on punishment. We should have pitched a claim for compensation equivalent to what Union Carbide would have paid had a similar incident taken place in US. That would have be ...more
