"I was the man in charge of law and order that night and every one in Bhopal will tell you that I was the only senior officer of the administration in action. Everyone else had fled to safety, leaving the city and its people to their own devices. But I have paid a heavy price. I have survived, but with a clutch of ailments. My son, who was then just two years old, has severe physical problems. Once I am through with this job, I will surely tell the entire story," says Swaraj Puri, as he tends to his eyes. Puri was the superintendent of police for Bhopal district when the disaster struck and is now an Additional Director General of Police.Locations:Asia-Bhopal-IndiaDate:1 Jan, 2002Credit:© Greenpeace / Raghu RaiMaximum size:5202px X 3516pxKeywords:Illness-KWCI (GPI)-Local population-Police-Toxics (campaign title)-Union Carbide-VictimsShoot:Bhopal Disaster Anniversary and DocumentationBhopal, India, is the site of the world's worst industrial disaster, where a Union Carbide chemical plant released 40 tonnes of highly toxic methyl isocyanate on the night of 3rd December 1984.
