Wanted: Warren Anderson, former chairman of the Union Carbide Corporation

Anderson was chairman of the Union Carbide Corporation in 1984 when an explosion at its plant in Bhopal, India, released 40 tons of toxic substances that killed more than 3,000 people and injured 200,000. He has failed to comply with a warrant for his arrest on charges of "culpable homicide" issued by the Chief Judicial Magistrate of Bhopal in 1992, and appears to have gone into hiding. Union Carbide refuses to disclose his whereabouts. Anderson is wanted not only by the Indian authorities, but by plaintiffs who have been unable to locate him to serve a summons in a civil suit for damages related to the Bhopal disaster.
