Jamshedpur No Comments on Labourers flare up against forced corona tests in Jamshedpur 2306


Mail News Service
Jamshedpur, Oct 01: It is a regular sight to find labourers waiting for contractors to take them for jobs.

They are seen waiting near the Mango crossing in the early hours. A team of health workers and Home Guard personnel today virtually forced these labourers to undergo corona tests.

This infuriated them and they blocked the main thoroughfare in protest.

Most of them said that they had already undergone corona tests and their reports were negative.

The police arrived at the spot and tried to pacify the mob but later had to use mild force to clear the agitated labourers from the road to restore traffic.

The labourers claimed that Home Guard personnel had taken two of their colleagues with them.

The Mango PS OC later said that the allegation was being looked into and if any Home Guard jawan was found guilty he would be taken to task.
