Amid news reports of Indians stranded in the Nepal’s Lukla town, the Union External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj asked the Indian embassy to look into it.
It is said that few Indians were stranded in Lukla for the last two days after their flights were cancelled due to bad weather.
The issue came to limelight after one of the Indians, Amit Thadhani, sought Swaraj’s intervention as they were unable to leave the town.
“Currently stranded in Lukla since 2 days, Nepal, with copter company looters refusing to evacuate us to Kathmandu unless we pay 600 dollars per head. We paid 200 dollars per head fare from Kathmandu to Lukla. @MEAQuery can you please help?” Thadhani tweeted.
Then, Swaraj asked Indian envoy in Nepal Manjeev Singh Puri to look into the matter.
The Indian embassy tweeted that they are trying to evacuate the stranded Indians.>
