Description

Many families have been torn apart by the recent toxic alcohol incident in India, as the death toll has now reached 100. The victims are mostly slum residents. They began to fall ill last week after drinking illegal homemade alcohol in Malad, north of Bombay. Varsha's husband died after drinking the alcohol in the Laxminagar slum. "My husband drank some alcohol on the night of June 17, and some people who lived nearby were in a bad condition the next day. My husband began vomiting and suffering from diarrhea at night. By the time we arrived at the hospital he was really ill and was sent to the ICU. I was told early in the morning of June 19 that my husband had died," said the 29-year-old mother of two. Most of the victims were men who were main providers for their families, and their deaths will make it difficult for the families to survive. "I am so sad that the most important person in my family has died, and I have to raise a son and daughter by myself. I don't know how to face life," said Varsha. According to local reports, 15 suspects have been arrested, eight of whom are police. Investigations are still underway. The incident was described as the worst of its kind in the city in more than a decade.
