The search and rescue operations to look for 15 miners trapped since December 13 at a rat-hole mine in Meghalaya have stopped now. Two 25-horsepower (hp) pumps used to drain out the flooded illegal mine in the state's East Jaintia Hills were ineffective, officials said. Water from a nearby river kept flooding the mine, they said.
