Jabbar and Bhopal Group for Information & Action’s Satinath Sarangi, who was also present in the court during hearing on Tuesday, accused the CBI of gross apathy towards Anderson’s extradition. They also prayed the court to issue a fresh show cause notice to new owner of Union Carbide, Dow Chemicals as to why it should not be made a party in the litigation concerning gas disaster.
A show- cause notice was issued by the CJM court on January 6, 2005 but further procedure on the issue was stayed by the MP high court. Now that the stay has been vacated, a fresh show cause notice should be issued, they argued.
The next hearing in the case will take place on May 3.
