Migrants sprayed with disinfectant, civic body apologises

May 23, 2020 11:31 IST

A group of migrants were sprayed with a disinfectant by the Delhi civic agency on Friday. The South Delhi Municipal Corporation later said it was a "mistake" as the worker who was handling the spray could not handle the pressure of the machine and the recoil changed the direction of the spray. SDMC officials have "apologised" to the migrants, the civic agency said in a statement. Hundreds of migrants had gathered outside a school at Lajpat Nagar to screen for coronavirus before boarding a special "Shramik" train.
