India should not participate in the London Olympics-2012 if Dow Chemicals was retained as the event's sponsor, newly elected Olympian Association of India (OAI) president Aslam Sher Khan said yesterday.

Khan along with survivors of Bhopal Gas Tragedy met Indian Olympic Association (IOA) acting President Vijay Mahrotra in Delhi and demanded that it register its protest with the London Olympics organizing committee.

Dow now owns the defunct Union Carbide plant in Bhopal from where the deadly MIC gas leaked in 1984, killing thousands of people.
