Greetings from PVCHR.


Please refer to the news in the link and the report:


Orissa orders probe into 'spurious liquor deaths'

The Orissa government on Monday ordered an inquiry by a senior excise official after allegations of seven deaths due to consumption of spurious liquor in several villages of tribal-dominated Mayurbhanj district.

In the last 10 days, seven people of several villages under Talachua GP of Kaptipada Block in Mayurbhanj district have died after allegedly consuming spurious liquor from a local shop. Besides, 16 others who had consumed the liquor from the same shop have been admitted to different hospitals.

Orissa excise commissioner Sudarshan Nayak said the local administration has no confirmation about these being liquor-related deaths. "No case of unnatural death has been registered at the local police station," he said.

Sir, on behalf of PVCHR, I request you to look into the matter and take necessary action against the authorities who failed in stopping the availability of spurious liquor in the area. The families of the dead victims should also be compensated.


With regards,


Dr. Mohanlal Panda
