Please do not forward this video and bust claims that this is a current video which is from India, highlighting the migrant crisis.
Since the lockdown was announced, several migrants have been walking back home by foot. The Centre has advised the migrants not to walk on roads and instead wait for the Shramik Special Trains to take them back. Over the past few weeks, scores of migrants have died on the roads due to accidents. Several migrants sleeping on the railway track were also killed recently in Maharashtra.
