Seven people died of poisoning after
they drank toddy from a liquor shop in Kuttipuram in Mallapuram
Mystery deaths rocked the small town of Kuttipuram when nearly 7
people died of poisoning on Sunday and Monday. Seven people, mainly
workers from Tamil Nadu, who allegedly drank toddy were found dead
on road-sides or after they were admitted to hospitals.
Kerala police sources, who are investigating this case, inform that
that the deceased drank toddy from shops in Perassannur, Kuttippuram,
and Veeranchira. Two liquor shop owners have already been arrested
in this case.
State Home Minister Kodiyeri Balakrishnan visited Kuttippuram on
Monday. "Murder charges would be framed against the toddy shop
owners if the deaths are confirmed to be due to spurious liquor",
