BANGKOK (Bangkok Post) – A young woman has been arrested in Bangkok’s Sai Mai area and a quantity of a new illegal drug cocktail known as “k-powdered milk” seized in the wake of the death of six people who used it.

Sirikarn Chuekhetkram, 23, was taken into custody in front of a house in Jitpawan community in Sai Mai area yesterday by police acting on a tip-off alleging she sold the drug cocktail, known as “k-nom pong” by Thai users because of its appearance.

The cocktail is reported by Thai news outlets to contain ketamine, methamphetamine, heroin and a sedative. Police say they have yet to fully analyse it.

Sirikarn told police the drug mixture contained ketamine and a sleeping pill called “rosé” (ramelteon, commonly prescribed under the brand name Rozerem).

On Monday, national police chief Pol Gen Suwat Jangyodsuk ordered a crackdown on the new illegal drug cocktail following the death of six people, three men and three women aged 21-34 years, after using it.

Five of them died in the area under the jurisdiction of Wat Phraya Krai police station in Bangkok.
