Shock after alcohol flows from kitchen taps in Kerala

Depending on who you are, the idea of alcohol flowing from your kitchen faucet sounds amazing or awful. Well, for a community in Kerela, India this dream/nightmare was a reality.

The smelly, brown liquid began flowing from kitchen taps in the block of flats, in Kerala, on Monday morning. Bemused residents then contacted the authorities for help, and discovered their water well had been contaminated by officials - albeit accidentally. It emerged 6,000 litres of confiscated alcohol had been buried nearby. The alcohol, which officials had placed in a pit after it was seized on court orders, had seeped through the soil and into a well - the same well which supplied the residents of the 18 flats in Thrissur district with drinking water.
