Two others were seriously injured in the same incident

A construction worker died when a chemical drum exploded at Rajoir Upazila in Madaripur on Sunday.

The deceased was identified as Emon Munshi, 22.

Two others were seriously injured in the same incident. 

According to police and local sources, some workers started work on a three-storey under construction building on Saturday morning.  Around noon, Emon and his associates tried to open the mouth of an old chemical drum on the roof of the building with an iron device, which  caused a sudden explosion. Emon died on the spot. 

Two other workers, Enamul Munshi, 19, and Zahirul Islam, 29, were seriously injured.

Officer-in charge of Madaripur Rajoir police station Anwar Hossain confirmed the matter.
