Thirteen people have died in Gopalganj, Bihar after allegedly consuming spurious liquor on Tuesday.
Thirteen people were admitted in Gopalganj Civil Hospital after experiencing symptoms of vomiting.
Over 50 bottles of liquor were seized after family members alleged that the deaths were connected to the consumption of spurious liquor. Later, police detained four persons from Gopalganj area and seized a huge quantity of country made liquor from them.
However, after further inspection, Bihar police ruled out the possibility of the involvement of spurious liquor.
The manufacture, trade, sale and consumption of liquor had been banned in the state from April 5 by Chief Minister Nitish Kumar with severe punishments for violation of the law.
The police is now conducting the investigation from a different angle.
