Sher Bahadur Deuba, Nepal’s prime minister, thanked Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi and his administration on Saturday for rescuing four Nepalese people stranded in Ukraine during Russia’s military incursion. The Nepalese students were evacuated as part of India’s ‘Operation Ganga,’ which was started on February 24 to bring back Indians trapped in Ukraine after Russia launched a military offensive. Two Nepalese individuals were rescued from Ukraine by the Indian government last week. Earlier, the Nepalese government requested that its stranded citizens be evacuated by the Indian government. Around 18,000 Indians have returned to India as part of ‘Operation Ganga,’ which began on February 26, two days after Russia commenced its armed offensive in Ukraine. Meanwhile, the Kathmandu Post newspaper reported that India has evacuated six Nepalis so far. According to the Nepali embassy in New Delhi, a total of six Nepali people have been rescued by the Indian government, including four who were brought from Ukraine on Saturday.
