An iron pipe broke and fatally injured him

A worker has died after a pipe broke and fell on him at the Rooppur Nuclear Power Plant in Pabna.

Saiful Islam, 23, was working to extract sand from Padma River with a dredger, when an iron pipe from the dredger fell on him, around 11pm Thursday night. 

Critically injured, Saiful was taken to Ishwardi Upazila Health Complex, where the duty doctors declared him dead.

Ishwardi police station Officer-in-Charge Bahauddin Farooqi confirmed the incident.

Saiful was a worker in the MTL project in Rooppur Nuclear Power Plant.    

MTL company interpreter Nazmul said: "Despite having proper safety measures, Saiful died because he was not cautious enough."
