On Sunday, an illegal coal mine took the lives of four miners in Nagaland. The mine is located at a remote village close to the border with Assam. Just two months before the death of 15 miners who got trapped in an illegal coal mine in Meghalaya had moved the state.
The exact cause of the death has not yet been detected but as per officials, they are analyzing two possibilities that they died either due to massive mudslide inside the mine or inhaling poisonous gas inside the mine.
According to the sources, the investigating officers were compelled to hand over the dead bodies of the miner to their family members without postmortem as they were not allowing it.
Officials have not given any confirmation that the mine, in Yonglok village in Nagaland’s Longleng district, about 250 km from state capital Kohima is a “rat-hole mine” or an “open-cast mine”.
Last year, on December 13, the coal mine disaster in Meghalaya where 15 miners got trapped in a 370-feet-deep “rat-hole” mine found dead. The entire situation had shocked the country. It was situated in East Jaintia Hills. The National Disaster Response Force (NDRF) along with other agencies carried out a massive operation to detect and rescue the trapped miners. It has been one of the lengthy operations Indian has ever seen. The Supreme Court is observing the development and the rescue operations on a weekly basis.
After the Meghalaya mine tragedy, many questions are raising about the unchecked coal mining in Meghalaya even after the National Green Tribunal banned it in 2014.
