Morena: The grim spectre of spurious liquor-related fatalities in this district appears to be far from exorcised as – close on the heels of 25 individuals perishing and four losing vision – one person died in Chichawali village on Sunday whereas a couple of youths are battling for life. In the words of Superintendent of Police Sunil Kumar Pande, “Locals blamed hooch as being the causative agent behind Mataprasad Kushwaha’s demise. The viscera report is awaited. Balbir and Dhamendra were rushed to the District infirmary from where the latter was referred to Gwalior.”
