HÀ NỘI — Police on Friday detained two people allegedly involved in the deaths of seven people at a weekend music festival in Hà Nội.

Lê Thái Sơn, 26, director of the festival organiser company Á Châu Connected Agency, was taken into custody for alleged violations of safety in mass gatherings.

According to the police, Sơn should be responsible for the deaths of seven young adults in the worst fatal narcotics-related case in Việt Nam to date.

The police also issued an emergency arrest warrant for 19-year-old Bùi Mạnh Duy. He was accused of luring others into illegally using narcotics.

Duy allegedly gathered a group of 15 young adults to chip in to buy 10 pills of ecstasy and marijuana to ingest at the music event.

Among the group, one suffered a drug overdose.
