Five die in Andhra after consuming surgical spirit

Five people died after they consumed the surgical spirit for intoxication at a party in Andhra Pradesh’s Visakhapatnam district.

A group of friends consumed the spirit at a party thrown by one of them in Kasimkota village of the district late Saturday, police said.

While three people died on Sunday, two others succumbed to King George Hospital (KGH) in Visakhapatnam on Monday.

P. Dorababu (48) and Vadlapudi Manikyam, (68) died on Monday. Sathibabu and Satyarao are undergoing treatment in the same hospital.

Police said P. Anand, who was working in a pharmaceutical company in Parawada, had brought the surgical spirit and threw a party for his friends. Believing that the spirit will give them extra intoxication, they all consumed it.

After the party, they went home but a couple of hours later suffered complications. Anand (55) and Nookaraju (65) died in their houses while Appa Rao (50) succumbed to KGH on Sunday.

Two of the deceased were auto drivers, the third one was a lorry cleaner while the fourth one was a daily wage earner.

“We have registered a case and taken up investigations,” a police official at Kasimkota police station said.
