“NEW DELHI: The Supreme Court directed the Central Pollution Control Board (CPCB) to file a comprehensive affidavit on the “character and content” of reported contamination of ground water in Bhopal’s Arifnagar area due to the 1985 Union Carbide gas tragedy.

A bench of justices Altamas Kabir and J Chelameshwar also asked Board’s counsel Vijay Panjwani to recommend measures to overcome the contamination and action to be taken in this regard.

The bench passed the order while dealing with a PIL filed by an NGO Research Foundation of India on various pollution related issues in the country.

At the earlier hearing the apex court had also sought an affidavit from the Madhya Pradesh government on reports of groundwater contamination even 25 years after the world’s worst industrial disaster.”
