DEADLY BREW

84 Killed in India by Homemade Liquor

At least 84 people have died after consuming toxic homemade liquor in a slum outside Mumbai. The liquor appears to have been sold over the counter from a shack. Five people have been arrested and eight police officers suspended pending an investigation. The liquor, sold in the Laxmi Nagar slum outside of Malad, had methanol in it, which apparently poisoned consumers. It was sold for 10 rupees a glass, or about 15 cents.
