This article analyses Bhopal Gas Tragedy and examines the factors that contributed to the gas leak in 1984, attributing it to corporate negligence. It must be duly noted that this article does not scrutinize the Supreme Court’s orders in this case and also does not seek to examine the conceptual understanding of green criminology. The primary goal of this article is to give much-needed attention to zemiology or social harm approach to comprehend whether or not the discipline has a practical standing. While examining that, the article takes into account the criticisms and argues how zemiology brings a fresh perspective to the table.
