More than 100 dead after drinking toxic alcohol in Indonesia




More than 100 dead after drinking toxic alcohol in Indonesia
Over 100 people have died after drinking toxic alcohol in Indonesia.
There has been a crackdown on the sale of legal alcohol in the Muslim majority country.
This crackdown has led to a boost in black market sales, which could be corrupted with methanol.

Images of distraught relatives and lines of trolleys carrying bodies in hospital hallways have shocked the country. A lot of people in several areas of the populous country have died from drinking toxic alcohol bought from the black market.

Most of the deaths occurred in West Java and Jakarta, the capital, but there have also been cases in South Kalimantan and other regions.

Deputy national police chief Muhammad Syafruddin has ordered all the police chiefs in Indonesia to put on end to the deaths by making producers and distributors of alcohol face justice.
He told reporters: "This is a crazy phenomenon. If we let it continue, it will harm the nation.
"I have ordered all the police chiefs in Indonesia to make these cases stop, zero victims, meaning to reveal the roots ranging from the producers, distributors, sellers to those who have the idea of mixing alcohol with fatal chemicals."
