Bad Batch Of Ecstasy Linked To More Deaths In Melbourne

Police have told a court that three people died over the weekend from overdoses suspected due to a so-called "bad batch" of MDMA.

Up to 20 people were hospitalised after taking the dodgy batch of drugs in Chapel Street nightclubs.

A 30-year-old man from a Melbourne address has been charged with traffic and possession of MDMA and possession proceeds of crime.

The Herald Sun report that Police told the court they could only link the man to one non-fatal incident.

He was granted bail today.

Investigators said yesterday they believe a 30-year-old man who died in Elwood on Friday night may have taken drugs from the batch.

Among the overdoses was a 17-year-old boy who remainsat The Alfred in a critical but stable condition.
