The DGDA directed all its wings to analyse the syrup sample after collecting it from the retail and wholesale pharmacies and send the report to the national control laboratory, said a press release signed by DGDA director general Major General Mohammad Yusuf.

On 12 March, it was reported in the media that two children of a family of Durgapur at Asjuganj in Brahmanbaria died after having the syrup manufactured by a certain drug company.
