    KARACHI: Number of deaths from drinking toxic liquor rose to 32 after three more people lost their lives in Karachi on Friday, Express News reported.

    Since October 7, a total of 45 victims of the methanol-tainted liquor have been brought to Karachi’s Jinnah Postgraduate Medical Centre. Around 13 of them are reportedly still fighting for their lives. Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) members Khalid Ahmed and Amir Peerzada also submitted an adjournment motion in the Sindh Assembly regarding the deaths caused by toxic liquor. An adjournment motion is a request to the Speaker to adjourn the House to consider a matter of public importance. As the fatalities soared, newly-appointed Excise and Taxation Minister Gayan Chand Asrani had suspended two directors and four deputy-directors of his department, belonging to the Karachi and Hyderabad regions.

    Asrani was given the charge after Mukesh Kumar Chawla was removed from the post after the provincial government deemed the minister ‘negligent’ for issuing licences to substandard wine shops in Hyderabad, where 20 people had died after consuming liquor over the past week.

    Pakistan itself is toxic.

    Therefore, it is no surprise.
