Shillong, June 7: The MLA of Katigorah constituency, Khalil Uddin Mazumder has sought the intervention of Assam Chief Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma for the rescue of miners trapped in East Jaintia Hills.

In a letter addressed to the chief minister on Sunday, Mazumder said that four out of five trapped miners are from Assam and even after seven days, there has been no breakthrough in the search operations.
