After walking 100 km, migrant labourer s wife delivers child dies

A migrant labourer s pregnant wife, who walked over 100 km from Ludhiana in Punjab, delivered a girl child after reaching Ambala in Haryana but the baby died shortly after birth. Bindia and her husband Jatin Ram, who are in their early 20s, had set out from Ludhiana last week for their village in Bihar. When the couple reached Ambala City on Wednesday, the woman gave birth to a female child. However, the baby died immediately after the birth. The couple performed the last rites in Ambala City. Bindia married Ram two years ago and it was their first child. She had come to Ludhiana from Bihar last year with Ram, who worked as a labourer in a factory. After the coronavirus forced a lockdown, most migrant workers began leaving for their home towns. Some walked and others hired vehicles to reach Ambala and Yamunanagar to board special trains. Ram said he and his nine-month pregnant wife decided to walk to Ambala after they did not get registration in special trains, possibly to save money .
