These migrant workers have been walking to their hometowns in Bihar from Punjab amid the coronavirus lockdown. Among the deceased, four are from Gopalgunj, one from Patna and one from Bhojpur.

According to the police, the bus was empty and the driver was in full speed. "They were walking. Saab, four-five have died. While Two-three are alive," an eyewitness told police on a mobile video. 

There are few videos from the site where, bodies are seen lying on the road after being hit. While, a man is seen rubbing the face of an injured migrant who seems to be in a state of shock.

Soon after this news went viral, former UP chief minister Akhilesh Yadav took to social media and said, "Deep grief over the painful death of migrant workers in the Muzaffarnagar bus accident in Uttar Pradesh.

First train and now bus accident, why the lives of workers are so cheap? Can not the poor of the country come via Vande Bharat Mission? It is not right to fly so high that the truth on the ground is ignored."

This tragic accident comes days after 16 migrant workers were killed after a cargo train ran over them while they were sleeping on the tracks in Maharashtra's Aurangabad.
