Today is the 36th anniversary of the Bhopal Gas Tragedy that took place on the night of December 2-3 in the year 1984. An accidental leak in the Union Carbide India Limited (UCIL) pesticide plant in Bhopal, Madhya Pradesh, released methyl isocyanate (MIC) gas.
The toxic gas drifted over the densely populated neighbourhoods around the plant, killing thousands of people immediately and creating a panic as tens of thousands of others attempted to flee Bhopal.
Victims and their families protested on Thursday in Bhopal,by burning effigy of Dow Chemical Chairman and CEO Jim Fitterlin.
"Our fight will continue till the time Bhopal gets justice & Dow Chemical company is punished," said a protester.
