Amid investigations into the illicit liquor trade, two more lives have been lost in the past 24 hours. Hira Singh (30) and Dilbagh Singh (32) of Pandori Gola village in Tarn Taran district died allegedly after consuming spurious liquor on Tuesday.

Dhruman Nimbale, SSP, said a case had been filed against Joga Singh and Karanbir Singh, from whom the two had procured the liquor. Hira Singh’s brother Dhira Singh and his friend Rampal are in hospital. The latter said he had bought a bottle of liquor for Rs 50 from Joga Singh. “It had a pungent odour.”

The kin of the deceased claimed that illicit liquor was freely available in the village. Dilbagh Singh’s mother, in her statement to the Sadar police, reiterated the same. — TNS
