Fire brigade and police have launched an operation to rescue them.

Official sources said the workers were digging the tunnel when a portion caved in due to landslides.

The tunnel, which is part of the under-construction four-laning of the Chandigarh-Manali national highway, is located at Kandrour, between Bilaspur and Ghumarwin towns around 100 km from the state capital.
