In a distressing trend, at least seven miners have lost their lives while engaged in gold extraction in the northeastern province of Takhar over the past month, according to local sources. It has been revealed that dire economic circumstances have compelled many residents to take up perilous work in these goldmines.

Haji Gul, a 30-year-old miner, found himself trapped under wreckage during an incident that occurred last Sunday in the Do Rahi Kokcha area in Dasht-e-Qala district of Takhar.
