Rescue operation underway at coal mine in East Jaintia Hills Meghalaya
Two weeks on, 13 miners remain trapped in a coal mine in East Jaintia Hills of Shillong. The attempts by the rescuers to reach them have yielded no success so far. High water level is proving to be the main obstacle in the rescue efforts, officials said. The miners, on December 13, got trapped in an illegal coal mine at Ksan in Saipung area of the Meghalaya’s East Jaintia hills after it collapsed and got flooded by the adjacent Lytein River.
