Local administration not ready to confirm yet
New Delhi, Jan. 15 (Delhi Crown): At least seven persons died in Bihar’s Nalanda district, allegedly after consuming poisonous liquor on Saturday.
Though the district administration is reluctant to confirm the deaths as sale and consumption of liquor in the state is banned ever since Nitish Kumar became the CM.
According to Nalanda Sub-Divisional Magistrate (SDM) Kumar Anurag, there have been a total seven deaths, but it is not confirmed if the deaths took place due to consumption of liquor.
He said while one of them died of a heart attack, one other died of a paralytic attack.
“As of now we can’t confirm that all the deaths took place due to consumption of poisonous liquor. The dead bodies of all the seven deceased have been sent for Post Mortem, and subsequently the real cause of deaths would be known from their Viscera reports,” added the SDM.
Though Bihar is a dry state, it is often seen that illegal liquor supplied from neighbouring states is easily available in the state.
