Police said Friday at least 27 people have been killed and more than 30 were taken to the hospital after drinking illegal alcohol in India's western city of Mumbai. One suspect has been detained in connection to the incident, authorities said. Residents of a slum in the Malad area first fell ill after drinking the illegal alcohol on Wednesday morning. Toxic alcohol deaths are a recurring issue in India, where people often drink homemade liquor. Earlier this year at least 29 people were killed after drinking a bad batch of toxic alcohol in Uttar Pradesh.
