UNB, Sylhet :

Eight members of two families have been found unconscious at their respective house in Sadar upazila of Sylhet, said police.

Two  members of a family found them unconscious on Saturday morning in their tin-shed houses and rushed them to MAG Osmani Medical College and Hospital (SOMCH).

They are Shajeda Begum, 50, her son Sohanur Rahman Sagar, 17, daughter Nigar Sultana, 29, of a family and Subhas Chandra Dey, 65, Sreebhas Chandra Dey, 60, Satyen Dey, 35, Shibani Chandra Dey, 52, and Gouri Rani Dey, 57 of another family.

Nigar Sultana, who gained consciousness at the hospital, said the members of the two families slept in their respective rooms after having dinner on Friday night. However, her brother Saheed was awake almost the whole night.

“Around 5 am on Saturday, our eyes were burning and we woke up. We vomited several times,” she added.

Later, Nigar’s brother found the window grill of their kitchen broken.
