Migrants loot snacks at Old Delhi railway station

New Delhi: A group of migrant workers traveling back to Bihar’s Gaya from Punjab’s Amritsar looted snacks and water bottles meant for distribution among Sharmik Special passengers, official sources said on Sunday.

According to northern railway officials, the incident occurred around 5.30 pm on Friday.
