    Bhopal Gas Tragedy.

    Convicts sentenced for 2 yrs, and Rs. 25000 bail

    The ironies are:
    1. The incident took around 25000 lives (affected innumerable more). This means Rs. 1 per life. Is it worth?

    2. Another interesting fact is that a man born in 1985 suffered from heart and lung diseases, (when still in his mother's womb, she suffered internal injuries) but was denied medic expenses since he was not born before 1984...

    there could be so many more like him...suffering..

    Such a gross act of injustice...damn! X-(

    alpha1 I BLUES!

    Bail amount has nothing to do with compensation of victims.
    Bail is proportional to the direct offense committed.

    Besides, most of the ppl have been compensated in late 90s and early 2000 (including some ppl who were not even present there at accident - one of them is my close friend from college)

    OK, so we have declared a verdict on the perpetrators, but what about the civic machinery that failed epically?
    Why have police and municipal authorities, as well as state medical authorities not been prosecuted?
