"The shopkeeper mistakenly sold him a bottle containing a liquid similar to water, which was battery acid packed in a waste mineral water bottle."

The author of this article and I have very different definitions of the the word "similar".

Johnny was a shopper.
Johnny is no more.
Johnny thought he bought some H2O.
It was H2SO4.

I fear this area of the world doesn't have consistently clean, clear water. I would imagine they are used to seeing cloudy, dirty, or yellow tinted water more often than we do.

an FIR number 60/2021 under relevant sections of law has been registered against him.

Somebody called the FIR department?

Was he charged?
Or was only the victim charged?
One can't be neutral at a time like this.
I'm positive there will be a negative outcome.
I mean that could have been terminal

It has a nicer rhythm if you stick a "little" before Johnny each time, IMHO.

It just goes to show that no matter what heights of human achievement and glory we reach as a species, there'll always be someone out there that mistakenly drinks battery acid instead of water.

You know, if you're dumb and/or unobservant enough to mistakenly use rubbing alcohol instead of honey you deserve whatever happens to you.

I hope you found that not in the US, where about a dozen regulations and some common sense, not to mention lawyers stop such things as that. Has to be India or one of those countries where they don't give a shiat.

Like the country where they scrape used cooking oil from the sewers, purify it (?) and sell if again for cooking.

It must have been the brown acid.

Battery acid?

Little Billie used to drink, but he doesn't drink no more, for what he thought was H2O was H2SO4 .

If you are so foolish as to purchase a water bottle from a street vendor and they politely twist the cap off before handing it to you, don't drink it.

I mean, he didn't specifically say he didn't want battery acid.  I mean there was some water in there.

Maybe the shopkeeper can sell him some 10M sodium hydroxide in a used glass bottle to wash that down with?

Don't buy an opened bottle of water in India. Got it.

*FTA * "Official sources told India Today that Tehsildar D H Pora, Niyaz Ahmad Bhat was coming back after destroying poppy cultivation and had asked for a bottle of water to a nearby general store"
Destroying poppy cultivation ?
Is that slang for shooting smack ?

The fact that the writing was all in English should have been a tip-off, but if you look again the label for the rubbing alcohol says Hawaii on the top.

I keep reading these lyrics to the tune of Jerry Was a Racecar Driver.

Jerry was a water drinker
Drank so goddamn fast
Never did see no acid in there
But he never thought it'd be his last.

I suspect it was diluted, so that helps.  Also the lining of our stomach is resistant to acid since it's normally full of acid anyway.  Sounds like the guy sought medical attention right away so that helped too.  The stomach may be acid resistant but that would have done some serious damage to his intestines.

Exactly the same in Indonesia. Except that its almost totally 1L Absolut bottles (in Bali anyway).

That's nothing. In Maine they sell asthma inhalers full of battery acid.

I believe it.  I went into a KFC in Bangalore and ordered chicken.  They gave me...I still don't know.

But I ate it and when I left I was apparently rich or white or something so 5 8-year-olds attached themselves to my legs and were crying and probably asking for money.  Or chicken.  Dunno.  A passerby helped me out by yelling a lot.  It is not one world.

They seem like similar definitions to me...
