Coronavirus lockdown | Migrant on way to railway station dies

A 45-year-old migrant worker from Rajasthan, identified as Harish Chander Shankarlal, who walked 30 km to catch a Shramik Special train, collapsed and died near the Vasai Road railway station in Mumbai, an official said on Friday.

Shankarlal walked the Mumbai-Ahmedabad Highway to reach the station as he had no money to hire a vehicle, and collapsed on the way. The police took him to a hospital, where he was declared dead before admission. An accidental death case has been registered by the police.
