After Meghalaya, Four Miners Dead In Illegal Mine In Nagaland


Four miners have been killed inside a coal mine in Nagaland. The mine is in a remote village close to the border with Assam. The incident comes over two months after at least 15 miners were trapped in an illegal coal mine in Meghalaya.

While it is still unclear how exactly the miners died, officials are examining two possibilities – that they died either due to a massive mudslide inside the mine, or that they inhaled poisonous gas inside the mine.

The dead bodies were handed over to family members without autopsies being done. Officials claimed that the families of the men were not allowing it.   

There is no official confirmation on whether 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.
