A 26-year-old man from Punjab was killed while he was working inside an oil tanker in Bahrain.

Jaspal Singh, hailing from Bathinda, died on the spot as he slipped and fell off a scaffolding he was engaged in dismantling along with four other workers on .

He was handing over pieces of scaffolding when he slipped, possibly because of the slippery beam, an official of the company that employed him said.

Singh has been working for the firm for the last five years.

The official said Jaspal had last gone home on vacation a year ago when he had also got married.
