Neem ka Thana Collector Sharad Mehra said 14 rescued were sent to SMS hospital in Jaipur for treatment.

Fifteen personnel of the public sector company got trapped in a mine Tuesday night when a cage used to carry the personnel fell after a rope broke, police said. The team included members of the vigilance department and other officials who had gone for an inspection. When the cage was coming up, it collapsed due to the breakage of a rope.
