Source: NDTV, Date: February , 2017

NDTV, Bhopal, Feb 2017: Bailable warrants have been issued against a former administration official and a police officer who were accused of helping Union Carbide Corporation chairman Warren Anderson escape from India after the 1984 gas tragedy. Then district Collector Moti Singh and retired Superintendent of Police Swaraj Puri had failed to appear in the court despite summons on January 13. Anderson, a US citizen, had never appeared before the Bhopal court for trial in the case related to world's worst industrial disaster, and was declared an absconder. He died in the United States in 2013. The two officers, now retired, had been accused of harbouring an offender and had several other charges against them. The case was filed after the activists sought action against the two former officers for allegedly helping Anderson escape from the country.
