It is reported at least 11 miners have been trapped in a mine as the coal mine collapsed in Balochistan.
According to reports of Baaghitv, another incident of coal miners getting trapped have been reported on Monday. According to reports, the tragic incident occurred due to methane gas accumulation. Rescue operations are being continued to safely recover the miners trapped in coal mine. It has been reported in the 15th-hour long rescue operation, at least 1 miner has been rescued so far.
This is not the first incident of its nature in Balochistan, as sporadic incidents of collapsing of coal-mines have been reported for many years and the successive governments have not taken substantial step to overcome this menace. There is no safety gadget, no safety kit for these miners which is against the spirit of the profession.
