Meghalaya: Help sought from Navy to rescue people trapped in East Jaintia Hills mine, five workers stranded for 11 days

Five workers are trapped in a mine in Meghalaya's East Jaintia Hills district for the last 11 days. The water level in the mine has come down here, but this reduction is not enough for the rescue workers to go inside and start the rescue operation. Meanwhile, the Meghalaya administration has sought the help of divers from the Indian Navy for the rescue of the stranded people.

Speaking to reporters on Thursday, Chief Minister Conrad K Sangma said, "We have written to the Defense Ministry to provide naval divers to assist in the rescue operation." He said that the government is exploring all options to rescue the stranded workers.

Asked whether there was any possibility of the government canceling the rescue operation, Sangma said, "Obviously it is our responsibility to take all possible steps to save lives." In fact, earlier the Chief Minister had described this rescue operation as very difficult and said that despite the efforts of the district administration as well as other agencies including NDRF, no positive result has come out so far.

Water level reached from 46 meters to 36.6 meters

On the other hand, at least 100 rescuers of NDRF, SDRF and fire service are camping at the accident site and waiting for the water level to come down to a depth of about 10 meters. The process of extracting water from the mine is going on and now the level has come down to 36.6 meters, which was 46 meters on June 4.

Five workers were trapped after the dynamite explosion

In fact, after the dynamite explosion on the night of May 30, at least five miners were trapped inside a coal mine in Sutanga area. So far, the police have arrested the coal mine owner Shining Langstang and accused him of violating the NGT order banning unscientific mining and transportation of coal. At the same time, the manager of the mine is still absconding and at present a lookout notice has been issued against him.
