Drilling to create a vertical escape route for the 41 workers trapped inside the collapsed tunnel in Silkyara here for two weeks began, an official said. A plasma cutter was flown in from Hyderabad to cut and remove parts of the auger machine stuck in the rubble inside the Silkyara tunnel where 41 labourers have been stranded for the last 14 days. The blades of the auger machine drilling through the rubble of the collapsed Silkyara tunnel were on November 25 stuck in the debris, forcing officials to consider switching to options that could drag on the rescue of 41 trapped workers by several days, even weeks.
