Court refuses permission to Bhopal gas convict to go abroad
Bhopal: A sessions court here on Thursday refused
permission to former Union Carbide India Ltd (UCIL) official
and convict in Bhopal gas leak case, S P Choudhary, to go
District and Sessions judge, Subhash Kakde, refused to
allow Choudhary after pointing out that he was among the seven
persons convicted in connection with Bhopal gas leak case last
The former UCIL production manager had sought permission
from the court to attend a business meeting in South Africa.
The prosecution agency CBI strongly opposed the
application moved by Choudhary, stating that it was not proper
to give him permission under the present circumstances.
Last month, the then Chief Judicial Magistrate Mohan P
Tiwari had sentenced seven persons, including UCIL Chairman
Keshub Mahindra and Choudhary, to two years imprisonment in
connection with the Bhopal gas tragedy of December 1984, in
which thousands were killed and lakhs maimed.
The convicts are currently out on bail.
