Girls Consume Poison After Failing Exams

Three Indian girls have died, and one is in a critical condition after taking "Sulphas" tablets. The girls were apparently dejected after failing their year 10 exams.

Indian Sulphas tablets contain aluminium phosphide, a highly toxic insecticide, which causes a toxic gas to form in the stomach and heart and brain toxicity.

Note that Sulphas tablets in New Zealand contain antibiotics, and are significantly less dangerous.
