The Indian government had announced a nation-wide lockdown from March 25th and it went on till May 30th, before some relaxations in the lockdown were announced. This left many migrant workers, students and tourists stranded in various parts of the country with no means of transport to return to their native places. Recently, the government arranged special trains to help these stranded people get back home. One such Assamese guy, who was working in Chennai, returned home on May 26th. He had been working in Chennai but had lost his job after his company faced losses and laid off many employees.

Assam guy who returned from Chennai asked to stay in quarantine in tree house!

On arriving at his village, 21-year-old Amosh Basumatary was placed under institutional quarantine and tested for the COVID-19. After about 3 days, his results came back negative and he was asked to remain under home quarantine for the remaining period. However, his villagers did not allow him to return to his house and asked him to spend a 14-day quarantine period in a tree house that they had built outside their village of Ansaipur, in Sonitpur district! They have also provided him with 20 Kgs of rice but he has not been provided with any other spices or pulses. Amosh's brother, who stays in the village, has been providing him with water. Amosh has also sportingly accepted this quarantine, for the safety of his villagers!
