Bodies recovered of five miners trapped in Muzaffarabad coal mine


Bodies have been recovered of five miners trapped in a coal mine near Muzaffarabad after a part of it caved in.

The police said two miners were rescued in an injured condition when the debris was dug soon after part of the mine collapsed. The bodies of the miners who could not survive were recovered around 12 hours after the incident.

The deceased and injured miners belonged to Khyber Pakhtunkhwa. The two injured miners were under treatment at Combined Military Hospital when the report was filed.

According to Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA), the remote area where the mine is located falls in an area that was declared to be a fault line after the 2005 earthquake. Therefore, JICA had suggested no construction be done in the area. However, besides the mine that partially caved in, there are others mines as well where work continues. The mines are situated at a distance from each other but fall on the same fault line.

Moreover, people who reside in the nearby area have also expressed reservations as the water springs around are polluted by the mines. Water from these springs is used by locals for their routine work, hence they object.
