Uttarakhand tunnel rescue operations in the final stretch...


First group of workers extracted from the collapsed Silkyara tunnel in Uttarakhand's Uttarkashi On Monday, experts in pit-hole mining began manually excavating through the wreckage in order to rescue 41 workers who were stranded inside the tunnel. According to the most recent information, horizontal drilling by hand is almost perfect, and workers won't be needed for long. On Tuesday, the first worker from the collapsed uttarakhand tunnel was saved.

The state government's information department, Bansi Dhar Tiwari, made the announcement that drilling was finished around 1:30 pm on Tuesday. chief minister Pushkar Singh Dhami expressed optimism that all workers would be released shortly after confirming on social media that the escape pipe had been installed in the drilled passage. Hours later, a representative of the National Disaster Management Authority stated that while the rescuers are getting close, the breakthrough has not yet been made.

For the last 10- to 12-meter section of the collapsed portion of the under-construction tunnel on the Char Dham route in uttarakhand, at least 12 rat-hole mining specialists had to drill through the debris horizontally. When a big auger machine got stuck on Friday, the alternate drilling strategy was used. Roughly 40% of the required 86 meters of vertical drilling have been drilled.

"The situation is good," a worker engaged in the rescue operation states. There are four or five NDRF personnel inside. The workers' rescue operation is already underway. To get the stranded workers outside, we are bringing stretchers inside."
