The event is aimed at raising awareness about the legacy of birth defects and pollution from the accident at a factory owned by US chemical company Union Carbide, which was bought by Dow in 1999, organisers said yesterday.
The plant leaked poisonous gas into neighbouring slums in Bhopal, killing thousands instantly and tens of thousands more over the following years in the world’s worst industrial accident. The “Bhopal Special Olympics” will see at least 100 physically and mentally disabled children compete.
