Earlier, 114 Indian nationals had returned home from Pakistan on Jan 11.
LAHORE — More than 450 Indian nationals, who were stranded in Pakistan due to the closure of borders owing to the spread of Covid-19, returned home through the Wagah border on Monday.
The Indian nationals were stranded in various parts of Pakistan due to Covid-19 restrictions as Pakistan had suspended travel to and from India in March 2020 following the outbreak of the virus. But batches of nationals of both countries have been repatriated occasionally under special arrangements since then.
Those who returned on Monday included Kashmiri students who were pursuing professional courses in Pakistani educational institutions. The process for their return started at 11am and continued throughout the day.
They were transported to the Wagah border from various parts of the country under special security, while other arrangements were also made to ensure smooth immigration of the travellers.
