Kathmandu: Eight Indian tourists, who were found unconscious at a resort in central Nepal, died while undergoing treatment at a hospital in Kathmandu on Tuesday, police said.

All eight people, who hailed from Kerala, had stayed in the same room at night and turned on a gas heater to keep warm, suggesting that the cause of the death might be suffocation, Rathore added.
