TN Hooch Tragedy: Death Toll Reaches 47, 30 in Critical Condition      


Big news from Chennai: the death toll in the Kallakurichi hooch tragedy has gone up to 47, and around 30 folks are in pretty bad shape, as per the Tamil Nadu government’s announcement on Friday. District Collector Prasanth M S reported that families have already taken care of laying to rest the remains of 29 victims who passed away by Thursday.

A total of 165 people found themselves in various government hospitals post their toxic liquor ordeal – think facilities like Kallakurichi, JIPMER, Salem, and Mundiambakkam. Sadly, 47 of them didn’t make it. Out of the 118 still receiving treatment, around 30 are hanging on by a thread – that’s what the collector shared.

On a brighter note, three individuals have successfully bounced back from this mess! The collector took a moment with the media after swinging by Kallakurichi Government Hospital to spread the word about special teams being put together to crack down on illegal liquor sales in the area. These folks have been given clear instructions to go over everything with a fine-tooth comb.

Everyone’s making sure there aren’t any shortages in necessary meds for those affected. Plus, there’s a plan in motion for a comprehensive door-to-door survey over at Karunapuram to pinpoint anyone else who might need help. The collector is urging anyone who had a sip of illicit liquor to step forward for check-ups and treatments because every life matters.

Also worth mentioning – three people got nabbed and booked in connection with this whole tragedy.
