Government protected Anderson: former CBI Director

INDUSTRY, IMPARTIALITY, INTEGRITY, says the badge of India’s Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI), the national equivalent of America’s FBI.

Not according to its former Joint Director B. R. Lall, who was the senior officer in charge of the Bhopal investigation from April 1994 to July 1995.

Lall, clearly nettled by criticisms that his organisation neglected its duty while he was in charge, went on Indian television to reveal that the CBI, which is run out of an obscure department headed by the Prime Minister, received a written communication from the Ministry of External Affairs instructing it not to proceed with the extradition of Warren Anderson.

“CBI investigation was influenced and commanded by some officials, as a result the justice in the Bhopal Gas leakage case got delayed, hence, denied.”
