Court refuses permission to go abroad to Bhopal gas convict

A Sessions court here today refused permission to former Union Carbide India Ltd (UCIL) official and convict in the Bhopal gas leak case, S P Choudhary, to visit a foreign country.



Bhopal: A Sessions court here today refused
permission to former Union Carbide India Ltd (UCIL) official
and convict in the Bhopal gas leak case, S P Choudhary, to
visit a foreign country.

District and Sessions judge, Subhash Kakde, refused to
grant permission to Choudhary observing that he was among the
seven persons convicted in connection with Bhopal gas leak
case last month.

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
conducive 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 were maimed.
The convicts are currently out on bail.
