A report by the Centre for Science and Environment in Delhi (CSE) was released Dec. '09, stating the chronic toxicity of the region. This echoed a Green Peace report released in 2004. Both reports state extreme levels of pesticides like lindane, mercury, lead, chromium to name a few, were found both in and around the factory.
"The factory site is leading to chronic toxicity, continuous exposure leading to poisoning of our bodies," said Sunita Narain, director of CSE, "the chemicals are leaching into the groundwater and leading to a slow and deliberate poisoning of the residents."
