KANPUR, UP, (ANI): Six people, including a father-son duo, died after they consumed illicit alcohol in Kanpur’s Ghatampur district, police confirmed on Tuesday.
So far, Uttar Pradesh Police has arrested 8 people in connection with this.
Senior Superintendent of Police Anant Dev Singh told ANI: “75 boxes of liquor have been confiscated by a team of 20 policemen recruited to search the spots from where the illicit alcohol was distributed. We have also fast-tracked the crackdown to nab those responsible for the sale of illicit liquor.”
“After interrogation, we got to know that those who were arrested were making liquor on their own and selling it to people all across the district. We have launched a campaign to educate people not to buy liquor from any un-registered shop,” he added.
The incident comes a little over a month after as many as 150 people died in a hooch tragedy that occurred in Saharanpur and Kushinagar districts of Uttar Pradesh and Haridwar district of Uttarakhand.
