POISONOUS COUNTRY LIQUOR KILLS 98 ,60 critical injured

Thirty-one more people died this morning, taking the toll in the hooch tragedy at Mograhat in South 24 Parganas district in West Bengal to 98.
More than 60 people are battling for their lives in several hospitals, official sources said, adding the casualty might go up.
Of the 31 deaths, seven were reported from Bangur, six from Chhittaranjan and the rest from Diamond Harbour hospitals, official sources said.
A large number of people were admitted to hospitals last night, the sources said, adding the casualty is likely to go up.
All the people fell ill after consuming spurious liquor from several illegal joints on Wednesday. Most of the dead were labourers, rickshaw-pullers and hawkers.
Soon after the incident on Wednesday, locals had smashed a liquor manufacturing unit at Mograhat and the joints from where it was being sold at Sangrampur.
The state government had announced a compensation of Rs 2 lakh each to the families of those who died.
This is one of the worst hooch tragedies in the state. In January 2009, 22 people had died in a similar hooch tragedy at Kidderpore area of Kolkata.
