Mangaluru:  Over 3000 migrants gathered at Mangaluru railway station in Karnataka on Friday believing rumours that special trains would take them home. The migrant labourers hail from Jharkhand, Uttar Pradesh, Odisha, Bihar and other states. The incident occurred a day after the  state government wrote to the railway ministry to restart special trains amid public outrage.

The migrant labourers have decided not to move from the station until trains are arranged to send them back to their native places. Railways and Pandeshwar Police tried to convince them to go back to their camps, but the workers are reluctant to leave the place.
