At least 33 people, mostly construction workers and autorickshaw drivers, died after drinking an illegally brewed toxic liquor in the slums of the Indian city of Mumbai.
The police detained three people in connection with incident as part of an ongoing investigation. The three are suspected of producing and selling the poisonous alcoholic beverage.
Cheap unlicensed alcohol drinks in India are extremely affordable, sometimes costing less than a dollar, but often contain pesticides.
Alcohol poisoning is not uncommon in India. In January, more than 30 people died after consuming a cheap toxic moonshine in the state of Uttar Pradesh.
