Dhaka, March 17: Two children in Ashuganj upazila of Brahmanbaria did not die after consuming Napa syrup. Rima, the mother of the two children, killed them by mixing poison with sweets. She later claimed that her sons had died after consuming Napa syrup. Ashuganj Police Officer-in-Charge (OC) Azad Rahman said on Thursday (March 17).
