Lathicharge against migrants to disperse thousands gather at Mumbai’s Bandra station

Agency News

Police engaged into lathicharge to disperse thousands of migrant workers who flocked at Mumbai's Bandra West railway station.

The station has turned into a hell when the migrant workers ran amok while the police began lathicharge. Earlier, thousands of migrants flooded the station hoping to get back home as they expected the lockdown to end on Tuesday.

The people gathered at the station are mostly daily wage labourers who are not able to earn since the government imposed a nationwide lockdown on March 25. Earlier, the lockdown was supposed to end on April 14, but Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Tuesday declared that the lockdown has been extended till May 3.
