Gas heater fumes kill 3 Badakhshan policemen

Jan 27, 2018 - 18:51

FAIZABAD (Pajhwok): Local security officials on Saturday said three policemen have died of inhaling fumes from a gas heater in northeastern Badakhshan province.

The dead policemen belonged to the central jail in Faizabad, the provincial capital, said Col. Amir Kala, deputy security chief of the jail.

He said the three policemen were off-duty and they had been invited by a relative as guests. They kept the gas heater on and went to bed on Friday night. The gas produced carbon monoxide poison that killed the policemen.

Provincial deputy police chief Sayed Jahangir Keramat, said the deaths apparently resulted from carbon monoxide poison but they were investing all aspects of the incident.
