A restaurant employee who had walked 200 kilometres from Delhi to reach his home in Morena district in Madhya Pradesh died in the Delhi-Agra national highway on Saturday.

The man identified as Ranveer Singh, who worked as delivery boy in a restaurant, decided to go back to his home after the central government imposed a 21-day nationwide lockdown in an effort to curb the spread of coronavirus.

With no public transport facilities available during the lockdown period, Ranveer decided to travel home on foot just as most of the migrant workers who are struggling to go to their homes amidst the countrywide lockdown.

Ranveer, who left from Delhi with two others on Friday, complained of a chest pain soon after reaching Agra on foot the next day.

He soon fainted and a local shopkeeper rushed to his aid and gave him tea and biscuits.

Unfortunately, Ranveer passed away and his body was soon sent for post-mortem after the police was informed.

Police informed his family about his death after getting the contact details from his phone.
