She had arrived in Muzaffarpur via a special train for migrants on Monday and was heading to Katihar with her sister, sister’s husband, and two children.
Shiv Sena leader Priyanka Chaturvedi shared the video on Twitter and said, “This video is just so heartbreaking and gut-wrenching. The clueless child who is trying to wake up his dead mother… speechless.”

As per the Railways statement, she died on board on May 25 and her body was handed over to her family members. Her family said that she had taken ill on the train due to the lack of food and water.
