New Delhi: The CBI has recently sent
additional evidence against Warren Anderson, former CEO of
Union Carbide, to the Ministry of External Affairs in
connection with his extradition proceedings in Bhopal case.
"The CBI has been consistently pursuing the matter of
extradition of Warren Anderson since 1993," Minister of State
for Personnel Prithviraj Chavan said in a written reply in the
Rajya Sabha.

However, the US Department of State did not agree for
extradition of Anderson in the Bhopal gas leak case stating
that the request of the Government of India does not meet the
requirements of dual criminality under Article 2(1) and 9(3)
of the Extradition Treaty, he said.
"The CBI has sent additional evidence to the Ministry of
External Affairs against Warren Anderson for his extradition
on July 29, 2010," he said.
