 Adulterated Liquor Kills 10 in West Bengal

In West Bengal's Hooghly District, an adulterated batch of bootleg liquor killed 10 persons.

The incident took place in the Champdani town of Hooghly district, where more than 10 locals consumed illicit liquor and immediately suffered with illness.

The locals said that it is due to the irresponsibility and oblivion of the police that the incident occurred.

Akbar Ali, brother of one of the deceased, said that around 12 locals have died in a week.

"This has happened because of drinking alcohol. Police has been very irresponsible, as they have failed to take action despite of knowing that such activities take place. In a week almost 12 locals have died because of drinking alcohol," said Ali.

All the affected people were admitted to a local hospital in the town and underwent treatment but few of them died as their condition worsened.

Parvez Akhtar, a local politician, said that all the deceased locals consumed alcohol from the same shop.

"From a week only we have come to know that an illegal liquor shop used to be run near the bus stop. The person running the shop was called Vijay. We got a report yesterday night that 8 persons have died due to consumption of alcohol here," said Akhtar.

After the incident, locals were highly agitated as they claim that the police have not taken action against the liquor shop owner despite of being aware of the irregularities.

West Bengal witnessed a hooch tragedy in December last year when about 143 people died of illicit liquor consumption in the 24 Parganas district.
