BODY ‘DETECTED’ IN MEGHALAYA MINE CAN’T BE PULLED OUT YET!

The Indian Navy today suspended the operation of pulling the body, which was detected last week using an unmanned remotely-operated vehicle (ROV) at a depth of around 160 feet inside a rat-hole mine at Ksan village in East Jaintia Hills district.
“The pulling of the remains, which the Indian Navy had tried since yesterday evening, was suspended. The decision was taken as too much disintegration took place with every pull by ROV jaw. We are waiting for further instruction from the Government,” rescue operations spokesperson, R Susngi informed today.
