Rescue operations resume at collapsed J&K highway tunnel

Jammu : Ten labourers were still missing while three were rescued on Friday in the tunnel collapse accident on the Jammu-Srinagar highway in J&K's Ramban district, May 20, 2022.

Jammu, (Asian independent) Rescue operations resumed on Saturday to locate the nine labourers who went missing after a tunnel on the Jammu-Srinagar national highway in Ramban district collapsed earlier this week.

The operations resumed at 5.30 a.m. on Saturday morning.

Three labourers were rescued alive and one body was recovered on Friday.

Authorities said the chances of survival for the nine trapped labourers are grim because of the possibility of suffocation inside the collapsed portion of the tunnel located in the Khoni Nallah area.
