Crane repair, diver’s injury delay recovery work
Shillong, June 18: The defect in the crane and minor injury to one of the divers have delayed the search and recovery work of the Indian navy at the mine accident site in East Jaintia Hills.
The East Jaintia Hills district administration said on Friday that the crane which is used to carry the navy divers in the metal box to the mine, developed snag.
Sources said that one of the divers was injured while carrying out search in the mine.
The lone body which was retrieved from the mine is yet to be claimed by the relatives.
