A video showing Hong Kong protesters being loaded onto a train has been causing major concerns as many believe they are reportedly being sent to China.

The video, posted by Twitter user @Woppa1Woppa on Monday, shows the handcuffed protesters being forced onto a train. Internet users expressed their concerns as it was unknown where the protesters were being sent, according to Taiwan News.

Several users who replied to the tweet identified the train as allegedly belonging to the East Rail Line of the Mass Transit Railway (MTR) system.

The destination of the detained people in the video remains unknown, but some users have claimed that the last two stations of the line are Lo Wu and Lok Ma Chau; both stops are border checkpoints to China.

Another user said there were no Hong Kong police stations located in any of the stops along the train’s route.

Facebook group Clear Voices from the Island posted several pictures on Monday.

The author of the post also stated that there was a high-resolution photo of a train coming from Hung Hom Station taken at 12:01 p.m. and it showed people in handcuffs, as translated by Taiwan News.
