Tuesday, March 28, 2006 (New Delhi):
The police have arrested over a hundred Bhopal activists, including women and children, from outside the Ministry of Chemicals in the capital.
Survivors of the gas tragedy, activists and supporters had launched a dharna outside the ministry on Tuesday.
They were demanding clean water, rehabilitation and the clean up of the soil and water around the abandoned Union Carbide factory in Bhopal.
Thirty-nine survivors of the gas tragedy arrived in the capital a few days ago after marching 800 kilometres.
Twenty-one years after the worst industrial disaster in the world, people living around the abandoned factory still get contaminated water.
