Rescue operations of Sujith Wilson in final stage but presence of hard rocks making digging difficult: Tamil Nadu Health Minister Vijaya Bhaskar

He said, "Rescue operation is in the final stage. As per the original plan, we should have reached 90ft by now, but the hard rocks are hampering drilling efforts and we have only drilled up to 40ft. Even the heavy machinery that we have on-site are struggling to drill the rocky surface. We are in talks with experts regarding alternate plans of action. We are in the final stage of taking a decision."
