Uttarkashi Tunnel Collapse: Adani Group Denies Involvement Amidst Rescue Challenges
New Delhi: In the wake of the ongoing efforts to rescue 41 workers trapped in Uttarakhand’s Silkyara tunnel in Uttarkashi, the Adani Group has released a statement vehemently denying any connection to the collapse of the tunnel.
Unfortunately, both plans were unsuccessful, with the auger machine malfunctioning and becoming stuck, further complicating the rescue operation.
In response to these setbacks, the rescue team has shifted to a vertical drilling approach, having completed 30 meters of drilling as of the latest update. The expected completion date for this phase of the operation is November 30.
However, Lieutenant General (Retd.) Syed Ata Hasnain, a member of the National Disaster Management Authority (NDMA), has emphasized the challenges posed by the difficult geological terrain in Uttarakhand, making it impossible to provide a definitive estimation for the extraction time.
The families of the trapped workers and the local community anxiously await further developments as rescue teams navigate the complexities of the situation.News Related
