A migrant labourer spent two days in jungle after allegedly being denied admission to the quarantine centre, and entry to his village, in Odisha's Ganjam district. The labourer had returned to Odisha from Chennai. 

After reaching Balasore by train, Barik Nayak was brought to Bhanjanagar by bus. However, when he reached his village, the local residents did not allow him to enter the village.

According to Nayak, he spent two days in the jungle near his village after the Sarpanch and local administration did not help him to get admitted to any quarantine centre.

Later, the police took him to a quarantine centre at Sanakodanda.
