Migrant worker, 39, collapses after walking 200 km from Delhi to Agra, dies | Agra News

AGRA: A 39-year-old migrant worker died on Saturday after walking 200 km from Delhi to Agra. The victim, who worked in home service for a private restaurant in the national capital and was the father of three children, was on his way to the Morena district of Madhya Pradesh, another 85 km from Agra.

Identified as Ranveer Singh, the man was a resident of the Badfra village of the Amba police jurisdiction in Morena, and was on his way home on foot.

According to the police, the victim collapsed near Kailash Mod on National Highway 2, after which a local merchant came to his aid.

“He made the victim lie down on a carpet and offered him tea and cookies. The victim complained of chest pain and also spoke to her brother-in-law on the phone to share her state of health. Around 6:30 pm, the victim died and the local police were informed, ”said Sikandra station officer Arvind Kumar.

Hariparvat Circle Officer Saurabh Dixit said: “The autopsy report cited the heart attack as the cause of his death. We assume that exhaustion from the long walk could have triggered your existing heart condition. ”

“The exhaustion likely caused chest pain. Throughout the NH-2 stretch, UP cops were present with food and water packages for those travelers, but Ranveer’s death is an unfortunate incident,” SHO Kumar said.

The victim’s younger brother, Sonu Singh, said: “Ranveer has been working in Tughlakabad, Delhi, for the past three years. He is survived by three sons, including two daughters. We are poor farmers and we do not know how his sons would survive now.”

“He called us before beginning his arduous journey home early on Thursday and said there was no public transportation available. Without any source of income, he wanted to go home, ”said his brother.
