Coronavirus lockdown: Tamil Nadu youths reach hometown hitchhiking, walking from Maharashtra

Chennai: Seven youths, hailing from Tiruvarur district of Tamil Nadu, who were stranded at their workplace in Maharashtra post the lockdown, reached Trichy city on Saturday after covering a distance of about 1,000km by walking and hitchhiking.

The youths said they were employed in an agriculture-based manufacturing company in Solapur district of Maharashtra. After all modes of public transportation were  suspended post the lockdown, the youths reached Solapur vegetable market on March 29. From there, they hitchhiked on a Tamil Nadu-based onion laden truck.

After six days of travel through Karnataka, they reached Salem on Saturday morning. After covering a certain distance by foot, the youths again hitchhiked on multiple trucks to reach Musiri town in Trichy district from where they walked to Trichy city, covering 60km.  

At Thiruvanaikoil, the locals helped them. With the locals’ help, they approached the district administration with documents. The district administration after checking their papers issued them the vehicle pass and they then boarded a vehicle to their native town.
