Two Russian employees worked at Rooppur Nuclear Power Plant at Ishwardi upazila in Pabna died early Saturday.

The deceased are Schukin Pavel,48, mechanical engineer of sub-contractor company Trest Rossem, and Tolmasoff  Vassiliev, 59, installer of another company SMU-1.

Both of them were residents of Green City Project, housing project for the Russian officials of the power plant.

Police said Pavel fell sick around 3.00 am and was brought to Ishwardi upazila health Complex where on-duty doctor announced him dead.

“We suspect he died from excessive alcohol intake,” said Asaduzzaman Officer-in-Charge of Ishwardi police station.

Meanwhile, Tolmasoff collapsed at 2.00 am while getting down from the stairs on the 14th floor of the building and died on the spot, said a doctor of the employer company.

OC Asaduzzaman said both the bodies will be sent to Russia through the embassy after autopsy.
