The incident happened at a village which was 200 km away from Bhopal.

The labourers started their journey from Hyderabad in Telangana and were going to Uttar Pradesh. They were carrying mangoes in the truck. 

“The truck, laden with mangoes, was going from Hyderabad to Agra. It was carrying a total of 18 people, including 2 drivers and a conductor. Five out of these 18 people have died,”  Deepak Saxena, Narsinghpur District Collector was quoted as saying by news agency ANI on Sunday morning.

“Two are critical and others are stable. One of them has cough, cold and fever since three days so we have conducted samplings of all of them, including the dead,” India Today cited Civil Surgeon Dr Anita Agarwal in its report. 

All of them were tested for COVID19 but one of them showed symptoms.

The incident comes a couple of days after 16 migrant workers were run over by a cargo while they were sleeping on the tracks thinking that trains are not running. 

Migrant workers are facing an acute humanitarian crisis since many have been stranded, out of money, out of shelter and food since march. Many of them decided to reach home on foot from one state to the other.
