Strict liability rule that NGT wants to apply in Vizag gas leak case
Referrence :-
On Friday, a day after the gas leak incident at a chemical factory in Andhra Pradesh’s Visakhapatnam that claimed 11 lives, the National Green Tribunal slapped an interim penalty of Rs 50 crore on LG Polymers India, and sought response from the Centre and others for the “damage to life, public health and environment”.
The NGT order said: “Leakage of hazardous gas at such a scale adversely affecting public health and environment, clearly attracts the principle of ‘Strict Liability’ against the enterprise engaged in hazardous or inherently dangerous industry.”
