Migrants travelling by hiding in cement concrete mixer held
In a deeply distressing scene, 18 migrant workers desperate to return home to Lucknow in Uttar Pradesh amid the coronavirus lockdown were found stuffed inside a cement concrete mixer on a highway in Indore, Madhya Pradesh on Saturday morning.
“Migrant workers were travelling from Maharashtra to Lucknow by hiding in a cement mixer truck. The truck has been sent to a police station and an FIR has been registered,” said DSP Umakant Chaudhary. The migrant workers have been sent to a quarantine centre and are being tested to know whether they have contracted Covid-19 or not.
