Technical snag in pumps hinder rescue operations in Meghalaya mine

Fifteen miners are trapped inside a 370-foot-deep illegal coal mine in Meghalaya’s East Jaintia Hills district since December 13 after water from a nearby river gushed in, puncturing the mine wall.

On the 20th day of the operation, Indian Navy personnel resumed with their diving using unmanned remotely operated vehicles with assistance of the NRDF in the main shaft.

Work is on to get the pumps ready.

The district administration is procuring a third crane which will be used in the abandoned mine shafts.
