HYDERABAD: Members of the Toddy Tappers' Association staged a demonstration in front of the Excise Commissioner's office here at Nampally on Thursday demanding compensation to the family of G. Ramesh Goud who died on Wednesday while attending the association's meeting at Nizam College grounds.

Holding the Government responsible for Ramesh's death, the association leaders brought his body to the Excise Commissioner's office and charged that the Government's ban on sale of toddy in city had ruined the financial condition of several toddy tappers.
