Hooch kills three in H'bad

While two men died in hospital on Wednesday, a 70-year-old woman died on Tuesday, police said. With the police cracking down on adulteration of toddy for the past two weeks, the at least 40 regulars have developed withdrawal symptoms and are being treated at the Institute of Mental Health. 

Having been denied of the toddy, adulterated with diazepam and chloral for greater ‘kick’, for the past two weeks, people in several villages around Rajendranagar are behaving erratically. The superintendent of Institute of Mental Health has said that the patients who were being treated for withdrawal symptoms would recover in a week or so.
