Indore: 18 migrant workers desperate to return home to Lucknow in Uttar Pradesh amid the coronavirus lockdown were found stuffed inside a concrete mixer on a highway in Madhya Pradesh this morning.
Police officers stationed on the border between the state’s Indore and Ujjain districts stopped the truck to check for illegal movement of people during the nationwide lockdown. Alerted by the truck driver’s nervous reaction, the cops checked the massive drum in which large quantities of cement and other materials are mixed to produce concrete for construction activities. To their shock, when they opened the lid 18 men were sitting inside.
