India has been in a complete lockdown since Tuesday, when Prime Minister Narendra Modi took this drastic step to help prevent the spread of COVID-19. This lockdown banned all inter-state travel and shut down all factories and stores that don't count as essential goods.
While we're all busy hoarding groceries and complaining about working from home, the poor have taken the worst hit. Many have been fired by their employers, with no place to stay and no food.
Due to this, many migrant workers have resorted to walking home. With no buses and trains to travel in, they've begun a tedious journey.
Two such young daily wage workers were taken in by a police chowki yesterday.
These 2 boys Prashant and Dilshad, daily wage labourers, have not eaten anything for last 4 days. They made a PCR call today which was received at Inderlok chowki. The chowki staff fed them and also donated Food/Rashan . #GoodSamaritans@DelhiPolice pic.twitter.com/civHY5SCXY— DCP North Delhi (@DcpNorthDelhi) March 26, 2020
In a heartwarming gesture by the police, Prashant and Dilshad were fed, provided with gloves, sanitisers and even given food for future purposes.
Twitter is applauding the cops for their good deed.
