With the train originating station as well as timing kept confidential and an extremely tight security cordon thrown all around, the Indian Railways ensured that no untoward incidents took place anywhere

Bengaluru: In a huge relief to migrant workers employed in Bengaluru from Bihar, Odisha and Jharkhand, the Bengaluru railway division on Sunday ran four special trains in quick succession.

These ‘Shramik Special’ trains together facilitated 4,790 passengers heading to their hometowns, offering them massive relief from the poverty and hunger issues impacting them since the first national lockdown.

Meanwhile, a group of people distributed masks and provided food to over 1,500 labourers before giving them a send off as they boarded the train from Malur station in Bengaluru to Jharkhand.
