Patna. Liquor ban law is the dream project of Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar. There is complete prohibition in Bihar, liquor can neither be made legally nor sold legally. Despite this, everyone in Bihar consumes alcohol illegally. People even swallow poison in a bottle of liquor. Many people in the state have died by drinking spurious liquor so far. After the death due to drinking poison in the name of alcohol, the family members of those who died often face the problem of earning their livelihood. In such a situation, Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar has announced a compensation of four lakhs to him. However, the process of giving compensation has not yet been completed.
Please tell that despite this announcement made in last April, no one has been given compensation till now. In this regard, Prohibition and Excise Minister Sunil Kumar has said on Wednesday that those who have died after consuming spurious liquor will have to wait for one more week. The minister said that the family members of those whose post-mortem has been conducted and the report has recorded the consumption of alcohol, will be provided compensation within a week. Along with this, the minister has also said that on what basis compensation should be given to the relatives of those whose bodies have been disposed of without post-mortem, it has not been decided yet. He told that when the families of such victims will get compensation, this situation is not clear yet.

The minister said that compensation has not been given to anyone so far and the process of investigation is going on.
