The workers were serving under a Gujarat-based private firm carrying out the Kashi Vishwanath corridor project in the temple town of Uttar Pradesh. While the kin of the deceased Aminul Momin, 40, and Ebadul Momin, 30, got Rs 2 lakh each, the kin of the injured received Rs 50,000 each. The bodies reached Malda.

When some people told Hakim that the bodies were “not packed properly”, the Trinamul minister took a dig at the Yogi government and said in Uttar Pradesh bodies of many Covid patients were dumped in the Ganga or on its banks.
