New Delhi: The Supreme Court on Monday said that "it seems to be certain that nobody is alive", referring to the 15 miners trapped inside an illegal rat-hole coal mine in Meghalaya's East Jaintia Hills since December 13 last year.

On January 28, the apex court had asked the Centre and the Meghalaya government to continue their efforts to rescue the miners.

Meanwhile, the SC will hear a PIL seeking continuation of the efforts to rescue miners trapped inside the coal mine in East Jaintia Hills on Tuesday.

On January 27, Navy divers recovered a second body from the flooded rat-hole coal mine. According to Navy officials, the second body was detected 280 feet inside the mine by its diving team.

The first body was found on January 26.
