दिल्ली के मुख्यमंत्री अरविंद केजरीवाल ने पंजाब में जहरीली शराब त्रासदी की सीबीआई जांच की रविवार को मांग की। पंजाब में जहरीली शराब पीने से अब तक 86 लोगों की मौत हो चुकी है।

उन्होंने ट्वीट किया, ‘‘पंजाब में अवैध शराब पीने के कारण लोगों की मौत से दुखी हूं। राज्य सरकार को ऐसे माफिया पर लगाम लगाने के लिए फौरन कदम उठाने की आवश्यकता है।’’
उन्होंने कहा, ‘‘यह मामला फौरन सीबीआई को सौंपा जाना चाहिए क्योंकि स्थानीय पुलिस ने पिछले कुछ महीनों से अवैध शराब का कोई भी मामला हल नहीं किया है।’’
पंजाब ने सात आबकारी और छह पुलिसकर्मियों को निलंबित कर दिया है।
