The Bhopal gas tragedy occurred in 1984 at Bhopal. On Dec. 3, a dangerous chemical reaction occurred in the plant. As a result, water entered into the tank containing methyl isocyanate gas. This resulted in the increase of temperature and pressure inside the tank. This led to the release of methyl isocyanate gas from the tank.

The gas spread within the radius of eight kilometers. The gas caused coughing, breathlessness, stomach pain, burning in the respiratory tract. By the morning, thousand of people had died.

Many people who survived this disaster, suffered from various diseases for the rest of their lives. People still suffer from cancer, tuberculosis, gynecological disorders etc as the result of the inhalation of the gas.
