Update – Sujith passed away inside the borewell, body recovered and sent for postmortem
Honourable Minister Vijaya Bhaskar gave a press interview now at 9:15am on Monday 28th October, 2019. He has confirmed that even the new powerful Rig machine is not able to dig through the rocks as it’s too hard. It was expected to soften after 40-ft but it has not and the teeth of drill bit is getting broken every few inches. Hence it’s going to be too difficult to proceed further with this method.
When asked about Child’s life status, Minster said we haven’t checked after yesterday morning as there is 1 inch thick of mud covered around him and hence his life status after yesterday couldn’t be monitored. He further added that they’re doing their best with rescue operation.
Chief of all teams are assembled to discuss further on how this operation can be carried out. Final procedure will be updated shortly. Also new blades which are much more stronger are arriving from Chennai which will be used as last resort. They’re moving the entire operations at war-front mode but nature is not allowing them to proceed with hindrances in the form of rocks.
Stay tuned for more updates. Please pray for Surjith’s safety and share your prayers, views in the comment section below.
