PTC News Desk: In Rajasthan's Jhunjhunu district, on Tuesday night, a lift at Hindustan Copper Limited's Kolihan mine collapsed, rescuing fourteen people, including members of a Kolkata vigilance team. The first three to be brought out were followed by the other eleven.

They were sent to a Jaipur hospital after being saved. The workers at the Kolihan mine who were trapped at a depth of 577 meters were freed throughout the course of overnight rescue operations.
