Bengaluru: Delhi -KSR Bengaluru train that arrived in Bengaluru on Thursday morning had 543 passengers, according to the count by Bruhat Bengaluru Mahanagara Palike (BBMP). Railways doesn't count people at exit and the health protocol is taken care of by the state government.
About 140 passengers were reluctant about going to institutionalised quarantine and were protesting against the same. However, after persuasion and discussion by senior officers of the state government, police and railway officials, majority of them proceeded to the quarantine centre.
Meanwhile, 19 of them preferred to go back to Delhi which was facilitated by railways at very short notice, by attaching an extra coach in Thursday's train to Delhi.
