‘I am free to go home,' Anderson said after disaster

New Delhi: Comments by key players in the aftermath of the Bhopal gas tragedy give an indication of the exit of the then Union Carbide chief Warren Anderson from India.

A TV channel reproduced the bytes of Mr. Anderson and the then Chief Minister, Arjun Singh, before the former left the country on December 7, 1984, three days after the world's worst industrial disaster.

“House arrest or no arrest or bail, no bail, I am free to go home...There is a law of the United States...India, bye, bye, Thank you,” Mr. Anderson said.

Standing outside the Union Carbide plant, Mr. Singh, wearing a white helmet, said: “There was no intention to prosecute anyone or try to, sort of, harass anyone. Therefore, he [Anderson] was granted bail and he agreed to be present in court when the charges are made.” — PTI
