AnushaMangaluru : A third year medical student who was stranded in war-torn Ukraine, landed at Mangaluru International Airport on Thursday 1pm. The parents thanked PM Narendra Modi, Karnataka CM Basavaraj Bommai and deputy commissioner Dr Rajendra K V for bringing their daughter back safely.

MLA D Vedavyasa Kamath and MP Nalin Kumar Kateel welcomed Anusha Bhat at the airport.

Anusha and her friends were unsure initially if their travel was essential as they were not in a war-hit city. “We were confused about the return journey as we had exams. The place where I was staying did not have any emergency war situation. The government of India was supportive during the evacuation,” she said.

She took a bus from Vinnytsia to Chernivtsi, a border town in Ukraine through an agency. “From Chernivtsi, we walked for two kilometers to reach the border of Romania, where we lived in a shelter for two days. I travelled from Bucharest to Mumbai in a flight arranged by the Government of India,” she added.
