    Guwahati Boy Stuck In Coronavirus-Hit Italy Appeals For Help

    We are trying to call the Embassy. But, we have not receieved any assistance: Shakib Ahmed

    A 23-year-old youth from Guwahati stuck in coronavirus-hit Milan, Italy appealed for New Delhi’s assistance to return to India.

    In a video posted on Facebook, Shakib Ahmed and Rishikesh (24) from Mumbai said, “Please help us return to India. We are two Indian students stuck in locked down #Milan. Nobody is helping us. There’s no information available on any flights to #India.”

    Both of them spoke about the situation and the steps they have taken to try and fly back to India

    “The country is in total lockdown. Nobody can go step outside their houses. People face a 200-300 Euro fine for stepping out of their houses. This is equivalent to Rs 17,000 in Indian currency. If we get infected, then there is no one to help us. Even, we won’t get medical assistance since we are firstly India’s liability,” Shakib said in the video.

    He further said that they sought help from everywhere but all went in vain. “We are trying to call the embassy for the last five days. But, either they do not receive our calls or they ask us to fill up a form,” he added.

    According to a March 16th, 2020, travel advisory for COVID-19 that was issued by the Union Ministry of Health and Family Welfare: “Travel of passengers from member countries of the European Union, the European Free Trade Association, Turkey and the United Kingdom to India is prohibited with effect from 18th March 2020. No airline shall board a passenger from these nations to India with effect from 1200 GMT on March 18th, 2020….”
