Police have stated that ecstasy pill led to the death of about two young men as they died within 24 hours of each other after apparently taking the pill.
The death of these youngsters has raised concerns about a spiked batch of party drugs and following this a stark warning was issued by cops to revelers.
The incident occurred on Thursday afternoon and another incident happened at 4 am on Saturday. Both the men were in their 20s and died in Peterborough, Cambs, and in Huntingdon. One of the tablets was consumed by both of them.
The warning was sparked following the police looking out for the properties where these men collapsed and the deaths are not being treated as suspicious.
Det Insp Jon McAdam, of Cambridgeshire Police, said: “While we have to await results of further tests to ascertain exactly how these men died, it appears they may be linked to the use of drugs. There is no knowing what such pills contain and what effects they may cause.”
It was also added that people needed to be extra alert and vigilant and keep away from any substance that is illegal and ecstasy-type pills in particular should be kept away.
It should be noted that last month also there was a similar death of a man in Bournemouth, Dorset.
