Bhopal: Prohibitory orders have been clamped
in the premises of the district court which will pronounce
judgement in the Bhopal gas tragedy case here on Monday,
officials said.

The prohibitory orders would be in force from 5.00 pm Sunday to 10.00 pm Monday in a one kilometre radius around the
district court, Additional District Magistrate (ADM) Rajneesh
Shrivastava said.

Public meetings, protests, slogan shouting, use of
loudspeakers and other activities have been banned in the
premises during the period, he said.

Only those who have business in the court would be
allowed inside, Shrivastava said.

Barricades will be put up on the roads leading to the
district court, he said, adding, orders regarding this have
already been passed.

After a trial lasting more than two decades, the
judgement on Bhopal gas tragedy, the world`s worst industrial
disaster which killed and maimed thousands of people, would be
pronounced tomorrow.

Chief Judicial Magistrate (CJM) Mohan P Tiwari will
pronounce the judgement after a 23-year-long trial in the
toxic leak case from the now defunct Union Carbide factory on
the intervening night of December 2-3, 1984.
