Two construction workers have been killed in a crane collapse at Rampal thermal power plant in Bagerhat.

The deceased are Nasir Hossain, 28, son of (late) Ansar Ali of Kalinagar village in Chapainawabganj and Asadur Rahman, 34, son of Fazlur Rahman of Adaghat village in Rampal upazila. 

Police said both workers sustain injuries after ropes of a crane snapped, triggering its metal pulley to fall on them.

Later, they died while undergoing treatment at Khulna Medical College and Hospital (KMCH). 

Confirming the matter, Rampal police station Officer-in-Charge (OC) Md Lutfur Rahman said the bodies were kept at the police station.   

When contacted, Deputy Project Director of Rampal Power Plant Md Rezaul Karim could not be reached over the phone.
