Amid the US presidential election, a parcel full of poison has been fetched by the police. The special thing is that this suspicious parcel was sent to President Donald Trump. The package is suspected to contain a poison named Ricin poison, for which two investigations have been done to confirm it. In fact, every letter or parcel sent to the U.S. Presidential Palace White House is trimmed and examined. Only when there is no doubt in the investigation, it is sent further to the White House.
Investigations are ongoing
A U.S. law enforcement agency official said the package was likely shipped from Canada. Investigations are on to confirm this. The Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) and the Secret Service are investigating the case. An FBI official told the news channel, “The FBI and our secret service and the US Postal Inspection Service are investigating the case together. At present, there is no doubt of any kind of danger to the common people.
What is Ricin Poison?
Ricin is a very deadly element that is extracted from castor beans. It has been used in terrorist attacks. It can be used as a powder, mist, pellet, or acid. Upon eating ricin poison, a person experiences vomiting, blood starts leaking from inside the stomach and intestines, liver, spleen and kidney failure, and finally, the entire circulatory system of the human being comes to a standstill.
