Additional director general of police (ADGP), CID, Anil Kumar Rao said Manipur residents stranded in Delhi had reached out to the state government for help. “We deployed three state transport buses to ferry them to Gurugram from where a train hired by the state government took them to Jiribam in Manipur on Monday.

A Delhi-based communication professional from north-east Aheibam Prahlad thanked the state government for its prompt response in a tweet. Prahlad expressed gratitude for not only providing buses to transport Manipuri students from Delhi to Gurugram railway station but also accommodating them in the train for Jiribam.

The ADGP said the state government has facilitated transportation of about 2.90 lakh migrants to their home states till Monday. “ About 5,000 buses and 77 trains were pressed into action to send the stranded migrants back home.
