Mumbai Methanol Distribution Leads to Deaths
At least 41 people are dead in Mumbai after drinking an illicit type of liquor authorities are saying was made and distributed with the intent to harm. Police in the Indian metropolis have arrested three suspects on charges of ”culpable homicide not amounting to murder,” for distilling liquor with hazardous methanol levels. Unlike its chemical cousin ethanol, methanol is a toxic substance often used for car antifreeze and biodiesel production. Twenty more victims lie in the hospital in critical condition, and the death toll may yet rise.
