At least six workers were killed while four others injured following an accident on Thursday, 25 January at a coal mine in Nagaland's Wokha district, an official said.

According to officials, the workers were engaged in mining activities at the coal mine when a sudden landslide buried alive six of them to death.

All six deceased workers were reportedly residents of Assam's Golaghat district.

The injured were shifted to a hospital in Dimapur. Their condition is said to be critical.

Meanwhile, a report said that deaths have been caused by a fire outbreak in the coal mine, and not due to landslides.

More details are awaited.
