In India, migrant workers, who thought that there were no curfews due to the curfew due to the coronavirus epidemic, had a disaster on the way to their homes by walking on the train tracks after work.
As the curfew continues in India, a freight train hit the migrant workers trying to reach their homes on foot in the state of Maharashtra. 16 migrant workers died and 5 migrant workers were injured in the accident. "I heard the sad news, rescue efforts are continuing," said Indian Minister of Railways Piyush Goyal in a statement on the accident.
Workers were Sleeping on the Rails
A police officer said in a statement about the accident that immigrants who thought that the train would not work due to the curfew and were exhausted from walking were sleeping on the tracks.
Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi said in his statement on his social media account that he felt grief and lost all the benefits due to loss of life.
