Two persons were killed after falling into an oxidation pond at a sewage treatment plant (STP) here last night, police said.

The two persons, identified as Mukund and Betwa, were working at the STP in sector 54 when they fell into the pond, a police official said.

V P Singh, the Station House Officer of the Sector 24 police station, said they died before they could be pulled out.

He said prima facie it appeared to be an accident, though a probe is underway.

The contractor has extended a financial compensation of Rs 10 lakh for their families.
