The death toll in the hooch tragedy that hit two adjoining districts in Uttarakhand and Uttar Pradesh has risen to 70, with more people dying of the spurious liquor they drank at a Haridwar village on Thursday.

Twenty-four of the victims died in Balupur and its neighbouring villages in Haridwar district. At least 46 others, who had come home to the adjoining Saharanpur district in Uttar Pradesh, also lost their lives.
 

Uttarakhand Additional Director General (Law and Order) Ashok Kumar today said, the viscera examination on 11 more bodies is yet to be conducted to find out if these too were alcohol-related deaths.
 
Both states have suspended administrative and police officials for alleged negligence and ordered probes. They have also announced ex-gratia compensation of 2 lakh rupees each for the families of those killed.
