INDIA: Twenty killed by bootleg liquor
Twenty individuals have died in India after consuming bootleg liquor, local police said yesterday.
The number killed by the contaminated spirit is likely to rise, with over 30 in hospital in the Neelamangala region, 20 miles west of Bangalore, since Monday.
The liquor was sold from a shop in the region, packaged in a bag with the labels of a cheap brand liquor. The brand name was not reported by local media.
The police are seeking the gang that supplied the drink to the shop but no arrests have been made so far.
