66 people have already perished in the Chhapra hooch disaster in Bihar. On Wednesday, there were the earliest reports of the event.

66 people have died in Chhapra, Bihar, as a result of drinking fake alcohol. On Wednesday, there were the earliest reports of the event. The Nitish Kumar administration outlawed the sale and use of alcohol in Bihar in April 2016.

Chirag Paswan, the leader of the Lok Janshakti Party (R) and a member of parliament, urged that a FIR be filed against Nitish Kumar, the chief minister of Bihar, for the Chapra hooch disaster as the dead toll is expected to rise.

Chirag Paswan stated that he did not believe that those who perished in the hooch catastrophe had just passed away, adding that he held the Bihar CM accountable for the crime.

Nitish, the chief minister of Bihar, becomes agitated in the Assembly
When BJP MLAs attempted to criticise Nitish Kumar in the Assembly over the Chhapra hooch tragedy, which has resulted in 66 deaths so far, he lost his cool.

Nitish Kumar addressed the crowd by saying, “Kya hai Gaya, jehrili sharab, halla kar rahe ho tum log.” The JDU leader could also be seen motioning for the BJP MLAs to be silent.

This had place as discussions on the Patna lathicharge on job applicants and the hooch disaster were taking on.

The Nitish Kumar administration outlawed the sale and use of alcohol in April 2016.
In April 2016, Bihar enacted a full ban on the sale and use of alcohol in the state, a decision that attracted a sizable number of female voters who were frequently perceived as being victims of domestic violence at the hands of inebriated males.

However, the state continues to see mortality brought on by the use of locally produced fake liquor and black market sales of alcohol.

Family members of the deceased in Chhapra alleged that their loved ones passed away as a result of drinking poisoned alcohol. The event happened in the Yadu Mor and Doila villages of the Isuapur and Mashrak police stations, respectively.
