9 killed and many trapped in Jharkhand coal mine collapse

Tuesday 3rd of January 2017 10:15:27 AM



Mine waste has collapsed on Thursday evening at a coalfield in Jharkhand resulting in nine miners losing their lives and nearly two dozen trapped.

The accident occurred at Lalmatia mine owned by Eastern Coalfields Limited (ECL), a subsidiary of the world’s largest miner.

A rescue operation was underway and the exact number of people trapped had yet to ascertained.

Mine waste piled up near the mine caved in, state police spokesman R.K. Mullick said.

"At that time, about 40 people were working in the mine and some of them managed to escape. Some of them have injuries," Mullick said.

The operation of the mine had been outsourced to a private company, Mullick said. The Coal Ministry has ordered an investigation.
