Bhopal gas tragedy case: MP Govt to file appeal

The Madhya Pradesh government has decided to file an appeal against the "disappointing" verdict in the Bhopal gas tragedy case, Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan said on Wednesday. The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) government in the state will constitute a committee to study the legal aspects before going in for the appeal, he said…The Chief Minister alleged that it does not appear that any serious efforts were made to ensure punishment to the guilty. "Victims of the tragedy believe they were cheated," Mr. Chouhan said. [refers to Union Carbide (part of Dow)]
