Adityanath said they are paying $2,800 to the family of those who died and $700 for people hospitalized.

"We can't give you the exact death toll as post-mortems are awaited in many cases", a senior official in Uttar Pradesh told Xinhua. "In the remaining 10 cases viscera report is still awaited".

The district magistrate of Saharanpur district in Uttar Pradesh, Alok Kumar Pandey, said last week that doctors had concluded many victims died "due to liver infection and problems in their respiratory system". "We will soon nab the main culprit behind this tragedy", Janmejay Khanduri, senior Uttarakhand police official told AFP.

"The viscera examination on more bodies is yet to be conducted to find out if these too were alcohol-related deaths", an official said. They seized hundreds of litres of tainted liquor in raids.

Saharanpur police said the liquor was first consumed in neighboring Uttarakhand where villagers from Saharanpur has gone to attend a funeral.

"The entire matter is being investigated and guilty would not be spared", an excise department official said.

Deaths from illegally-produced alcohol, known locally as "hooch" or "country liquor", are common in India because the poor can not afford licensed brands - the worst "hooch"-related deaths occurred in 2011 when 172 people died in West Bengal".

In December 2011, hooch tragedy killed 172 people in West Bengal.

Illicit liquor, which is often spiked with chemicals such as pesticides to increase potency, has also become a hugely profitable industry across the country because bootleggers pay no taxes and sell enormous quantities of their product to the poor at a cheap rate.
