India offers to evacuate all students of neighbouring countries from Wuhan: Jaishankar

Agency News

New Delhi, Feb 7: While evacuating the Indian students from Wuhan, the epicentre of deadly coronavirus in China, India also offered help to the students of the neighbouring countries.

Replying to question of the BJP lawmaker Rupa Ganguly in the Upper House that whether India had offered a help in evacuating Pakistani students from Wohan, Mr Jaishankar said that India has offered evacuation to all students of all neighbouring countries and under that offer, seven students from Maldives were airlifted by Air India Flight along with Indian students.

The Minister also said that there are 80 Indian students still left in Wuhan.

He said that these students came to Wuhan airport but ten of them were having fever at that time. Therefore, the Chinese authorities did not allow them to fly. The remaining 70 students also decided to stay with them.

The officials of the Indian Embassy are in constant touch with the students and extending them all medical help. (UNI)
