Streets around the Indian capital Delhi have been filled with people walking to reach their villages in neighbouring states.

Most of them are daily-wage workers who are now out of work after Prime Minister Narendra Modi announced a complete lockdown of the country on 24 March to halt the spread of coronavirus.

In the absence of money and jobs, they are desperate to reach their villages. Some found government-run buses to reach home and others just continued to walk.

The BBC’s Vikas Pandey finds out more.
