Noida (UP): In a freak incident, a 25-year-old worker was killed after being sucked into a machine in a plastic factory here.

The incident occurred on Wednesday at the factory located in the Noida Special Economic Zone (NSEZ), under Phase 2 police station limits, they said.

"Wajid reached for work this morning in the factory which makes plastic products. He was cleaning a big-size machine which has blades in it. While he was cleaning, someone switched on the machine and soon Wajid was sucked inside," a police official said.
