On Sunday, several cases of use of the narcotics were reported in Bangkok. In addition to these cases, seven other people were found unconscious after taking the same mixed narcotic.

According to a report, one of the victims was a nightclub dancer aged 22, who died in her residence located in the Bang Kho Laem area. Her boyfriend was found near her in a severe condition.

Police suspected that these people were suffering the fallout of consuming “K Nompong”, which is popular among teenagers. A pack of narcotics was reportedly found at the scene.

“K Nompong” is a mixture of ketamine, methamphetamine, heroin and a sleeping pill called “Rose”. It has been nicknamed “K Nompong” because it is made from ketamine and looks like milk powder (nompong in Thai).

On Sunday, there was a report that some teenagers in Sai Mai district of Bangkok had tried to kill others due to the hallucination effect of “K Nompong”.
