MEGHALAYA: After 41 days of relentless operations, NDRF and Indian Navy in a joint operation retrieved one unidentified body of one of the trapped miners from the main shaft of the Ksan Rat hole Mine No. 26 at about 3:00 PM on Thursday. 

After a lot of struggle, the body was recovered from about 183 feet of air column and about 170 feet of water column, with a total of about 355 feet of vertical depth in the main shaft and then about 210 feet horizontally, from a rat hole.

The body was packed and pulled out from the shaft at about 3:00 PM and handed over to the officer in charge. The body will be further dispatched to the Civil Hospital, Khliehriat for post mortem.

The illegal rat-hole mine had collapsed on December 13 after water from an adjacent abandoned mine and a nearby river flooded it.

The operation will continue to recover the rest of the bodies.
