Officials have said that the death toll in the twin hooch tragedies in Uttar Pradesh and Uttarakhand has risen to 108, with many people still recovering at hospitals. This was as the victims from UP had visited Uttarakhand for a funeral after which they consumed hooch (liquor) which was poisonous. Currently, Uttar Pradesh has constituted a special investigation team to investigate the deaths.

Priyanka Gandhi(Congress) said of it, “I am extremely distressed to hear about such a tragic incident and express my deepest condolences to the family members of the deceased persons.” She said it was unimaginable that the business of illegal liquor was being run on such a large scale.
