The train was subsequently cancelled due to some reason. The police then asked the migrant workers to go back home and come the next time. Abu Azmi came to know of the incident and he went to protest at the Nagpada police station.

A video went viral in which Abu Azmi was seen protesting against the police. He went on to demand that the Senior Inspector of Nagpada should be suspended immediately.
