 The travel of pilgrims comes amid the latest guidelines of the Ministry of Home Affairs that allowed travel of stranded people with the cooperation of State Governments.

Around 750 pilgrims who were stranded in the Nanded City of Maharashtra, where Hazur Sahib Nanded, one of the five takHTs of the Sikh Community is located, returned to Punjab on May 1 where they were tested for the virus. 351 people tested positive and are quarantined near the border. The others are also kept in isolation for the next 14 days.
