By Sandeep Anand: At least three people died in Bihar’s Vaishali district reportedly after consuming liquor, which has been banned in the state since 2016. Among the dead includes the principal of a private school in Vaishali’s Mehnar.
The school director said that Jai Pradhan Newad died after he consumed alcohol while partying. In two other separate incidents in Mehnar, while Rahul died after falling ill due to liquor consumption at a wedding, Anil too faced the same fate.
Police and officials had constituted a medical team for postmortem to examine the cause of death. The officials have also appealed to people to inform any cases of death or illness suspected to be caused by liquor consumption.
Earlier on Thursday, five prisoners and two police officers were arrested for being caught while enjoying a liquor party inside an excise police station in Paliganj in Bihar’s Patna.
