India: At least 21 people have died in several districts of Punjab allegedly after consuming toxic liquor, prompting Chief Minister Amarinder Singh to order a high-level probe. The senior Congress leader later tweeted that the guilty will not be spared. “I have ordered a magisterial enquiry into suspected spurious liquor deaths in Amritsar, Gurdaspur and Tarn Taran. Commissioner, Jalandhar Division will conduct the enquiry and coordinate with concerned SSPs and other
officers. Anyone found guilty will not be spared,” Mr Singh tweeted.
A government statement accessed by news agency PTI said the deaths reportedly took place in Amritsar, Batala and Tarn Taran districts after Wednesday night.
