Old video of an overcrowded Bangladesh train shared as ‘Shramik special train’.


A video of an overcrowded train is being shared on social media with a claim that it shows a Shramik special train from Mumbai to West Bengal that ran on 10 May 2020. But, FACTLY has found that it is an old video and it is not related to India. A user has posted an extended and better-quality version of the same video in February 2018 with the title – ‘Most Crowded Train in the World- Bangladesh Railway’. Also, in the video, it can be observed that the text written on the coaches conveys that the train is related to Bangladesh, not India.
