After helping thousands of stranded migrant workers in Mumbai to get back to their hometowns in buses, actor Sonu Sood has now started facilitating their return via trains. The migrants left for Uttar Pradesh and Bihar in two special trains from Thane station on Monday.

Since Indian railways resumed services recently, Sonu Sood on Sunday night personally went to the railway station to check the arrangements. The actor, with the support of Maharashtra government, provided the travellers with basic necessities including meal kits and sanitisers too.
