The Madhya Pradesh High Court has dismissed a petition filed by Dow Chemical, challenging the trial court order of 2005 issuing a show-cause notice to it in the 1984 Bhopal gas leak case.

Dow Chemical International Private Limited’s petition was dismissed by a Bench of Justice G.S. Solanki on October 19.

A court in Bhopal issued the show-cause notice to Dow Chemical in response to a petition moved by NGOs fighting for the rights of the gas victims in January 2005.
