The two women migrant labourers who came from Indore facing all odds reached their home in Garahakota for safe living. The two victims one married (23) and her cousin (21) and their other family members reached Garhakota from Indore on May 12.
As per health protocol, they were sent to quarantine centre for 14 days set up in a school building in Garhakota. As daily routine, they took bath at hand pumps situated in the school premises. The two men Laxman Ladia and Sunil Ladia filmed their bathing and cloth changing scenes.
