One PDB employee died while working on the electricity pole in Chittagong’s Sitakunda block. Today, on Tuesday (November 27th), the accident happened at the UpazilaBarobakund market around 9:30 am. The name of the power worker said.

After the incident, locals blocked the Dhaka-Chittagong highway and blamed the PDB authorities for blocking the traffic on Dhaka-Chittagong highway for about 20 minutes. The agitated people then surrounded the bank’s power office and vandalized the gate.Sitakunda police and Kumira outpost police went to the spot and sacked the block and made the movement normal. Asked about this, PDB executive engineer Asaduzzaman denied the allegations, said the accident caused the error. Neither is it yet confirmed. But as far as I know, there was no electricity while working; on the other hand the line from the office was also closed. Often the automatic line is turned on due to error. The accident occurred due to the error.
