    At least 22 people died after drinking toxic liquor in India’s northern Aligarh city, officials said on Saturday.

    People who consumed the liquor had bought the product from licensed vendors, including patient Nitu Tiwari who was undergoing treatment in hospital after suffering ill effects.

    Five people were arrested in connection with the case, according to local media. The liquor samples were sent for testing and an investigation is underway.

    Deaths from drinking toxic liquor are common in India, where the poor often drink country-made liquor that is cheaper than regulated alcohol.

    Often methanol, a toxic form of alcohol used as an anti-freeze or fuel, is added to low-quality liquor as it is a cheap and quick way of increasing its alcohol content.

    In meteorology, a cyclone is a large scale air mass that rotates around a strong center of low atmospheric pressure. Cyclones are characterized by inward spiraling winds that rotate about a zone of low pressure and typically bring winds, rain, high waves and storm surges to the areas they pass.

    In the Atlantic and the northeastern Pacific oceans, a tropical cyclone is generally referred to as a hurricane (from the name of the ancient Central American deity of wind, Huracan), in the Indian and south Pacific oceans it is called a cyclone, and in the northwestern Pacific it is called a typhoon.
