reached a pipe length of 53 meters
A 53-meter-long pipe was drilled in the tunnel and moved over the debris. Previously, four-inch tubes were used to supply oxygen, light food, dried fruit, medicine and water to the workers in the tunnel. The new pipe is called the second “lifeline”. Apart from this, DRDO has also deployed drones and robots to find alternatives to evacuate workers.
