The work of laying a 80 meter diameter 10 meter pipe was stopped for the last 4 days to free up the workers. The drilling auger is stuck there because the machine has broken down.

Like rats, a team of workers quickly excavated a small space to the rescue. They had hammers, spades and other traditional digging tools. A team of 6 miners with experience in similar work in delhi and ahmedabad is here. The miners said that two men would go into the pipe first, one would make a path ahead, and the other would load the ore into a trolley. Four people standing outside pull this radar trolley out of the tube with the help of a rope. 6 to 7 kg of ratroda is taken at a time. When those who had gone in to dig were tired, two men from outside would go in, and the former two would come out. And they dug one by one for the remaining 10 meters.


Workers trapped in the tunnel entered from the Silkyara side. 2340 meters section of the stuck tunnel has been completed. In this area, the road has collapsed on the mountain pass and the soil has collapsed for a distance of 200 meters. This road is 60 meters long. That means the platform is stuck at a distance of 260 meters. These workers have a distance of almost two kilometers to travel. 50 feet wide road and workers can travel in areas up to two kilometers.
