Two persons died, while some others remained critical after they allegedly consumed spurious liquor in Uttar Pradesh's Kanpur, police said on Saturday. The incident was reported at a marriage function in Bhitargaav village of the city. Commenting on the incident, Superintendent of Police (Rural) Pradyuman Singh said that spurious liquor was consumed in the marriage of a farmer's daughter in Ghatampur area.

"After consuming the liquor, some people were admitted to the community health centre from where they were sent to Lala Lajpat Rai Hospital. During treatment, two persons died, while two others are in serious condition," Singh said.

The matter is being investigated, he added.
