An Indian man was killed when a wooden plank fell on his head from the 20th floor of an under-construction building in Bahrain.

Forty-two-year old Murlidhar, who hails from Rajasthan, had been working for a construction firm as a carpenter for five years.

Four Indian workers, who were working on the 20th floor, were taken into custody immediately after the accident last weekend and the Labour Ministry has launched an investigation, media reported in Dubai on Saturday.

This is the third tragedy to hit the family in eight years. Earlier, they lost a four-year-old child and a newborn baby.
