Five labourers jump from slow-moving train in UP, sent to quarantine centre

Five labourers jumped from a slow-moving Shramik Special train bound for Gonda on Friday following which they were detained and sent to a quarantine centre, police said.

The Shramik Special train was ferrying migrant labourers from Amritsar to Gonda.

The train was moving at a slow speed towards Sitapur around 5 am when the five labourers hailing from Shahjahanpur jumped from it, SHO, Government Railway Police (GRP), Ajit Kumar Singh, told PTI.

As the train was moving at a slow speed none of them suffered injuries.

All of them were detained and later sent to a quarantine centre, Singh said.

Shramik Special trains, which began on May 1, are bound for a single destination without any stoppages.

The trains are ferrying migrant workers stranded in various states due to the coronavirus-induced lockdown.
