Kerala to home deliver booze amid rising suicides

Apr 01, 2020 07:08 IST

The Kerala government has come out with guidelines that they will supply three litres of liquor every week to those showing withdrawal symptoms, to their homes. The move comes after several people approached the Excise department with a letter from doctors. Reports said but the Excise department rejected most of the letters as they were signed by retired doctors or doctors from the private sector. Amid a 21-day lockdown, Kerala has seen a surge in suicides among people who are addicted to liquor.
