People addicted to consuming spurious toddy are behaving in a strange way with Telangana government banning it. Many people were admitted in government hospitals in Telangana districts with toddy shops stopping to sell spurious toddy mixed with chemicals like chloral hydrate, diazepam or alprazolam after Excise officials began raiding premises of toddy shops. Several people have made suicide attempts in the absence of spurious toddy. Doctors said that they can be cured from addiction. People's organisations are demanding the government to close toddy shops.
