Police rushed to the spot and found that the injured had been taken to Jag Pravesh Chandra Hospital.
“Six people in a family were found dead in their house in the Shastri Park area after they inhaled carbon monoxide produced from the burning Mosquito coil that had fallen over a mattress sometime during the night. The toxic fumes caused inmates to lose consciousness and later died due to suffocation,” said DCP North East district Joy Tirkey.
