JASIN: A Bangladeshi contract worker was killed after he fell into a waste boiler at a palm oil mill in Jalan Rim here on Sunday (Sept 13).

Jasin OCPD Deputy Supt Mispani Hamdan identified the victim as Md Abdul Manan Molla, 39, who succumbed to severe burns in the 11.30am incident.

He said the victim was carrying out piping work on the rooftop before he is believed to have fallen into the 4.5m-deep boiler.
