Patna: Three people died after consuming spurious liquor in Bihar’s Sitamarhi district. Avadesh Kumar is the latest to die. The police said that the investigation revealed that two people had died after consuming fake liquor in the area earlier. But before this information was reported to the police, they were cremated.
Two people are still undergoing treatment. Three people have been arrested in connection with the incident. Police said that more than 90 fake liquor bottles were recovered from them.
After the Nitish Kumar government banned the sale and consumption of alcohol in 2016, the sale of fake liquor has increased in the state.
Incidents of liquor being smuggled into Bihar from other states were also reported in abundance. In April this year, 30 people died after consuming spurious liquor in East Champaran district.
