Bhopal: In a sensational revelation in the Bhopal gas tragedy case, declassified CIA documents dated 1984 suggest that Union Carbide chief Warren Anderson was freed from police custody and allowed to flee to the US at the behest of the central government led by Rajiv Gandhi.
Notably, during the tragedy the state also had a Congress government with Arjun Singh as the chief minister.
The CIA papers, accessed by a news channel, cite the Assembly elections which were scheduled to be held a few weeks after the gas leak as the reason behind government’s attempt to deflect blame from itself to Union Carbide.
