ABSTRACT

 

Its a great challenge to retain human rights during industrial disasters. Analyzing the judgments over Bhopal gas tragedy case, one can easily feel the utmost need to develop the human rights jurisprudence in India. The verdict and the long chain of events which is a part of result of the cumulative and possibly failures of the governmental investigative and prosecutorial agencies as were the judicial system. Indeed it is the time to reconsider the right penal philosophy to be adopted in case of failure to implement the statues in their true spirit.
