198 Migrants Killed In Road Accidents During Lockdown: Report
NEW DELHI: Road accidents claimed 750 people including 198 migrant workers, who were headed home during the nationwide lockdown between March 25 to May 31. At least 1,461 road mishaps took place during the course, as per the data compiled by the Save LIFE.

Since the lockdown began, nearly 200 migrant workers have lost their lives while walking, cycling back home, travelling in HMVs and LMV commercial vehicles, and in mass fatality crashes involving state-organized buses. One of the recurring reasons for mass casualties in most of the incidents was speeding and driver fatigue due to continuous driving on tenuous routes.
