A former Fijian citizen is behind bars in Sydney, accused of poisoning his wife with a powerful sedative allegedly stolen from a hospital.

It is alleged Singh gave Lata, who is also a nurse, the drug, claiming it was a saline drip, when she became dehydrated on Tuesday.

Lata woke up eight hours after being the drip, realised something was wrong and called emergency services.
