Four Punjabi youth stuck in Armenia return home

Four Indians – three men and a woman – stranded in Armenia returned home to India on Saturday. They had uploaded a video on social media two days ago, requesting Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) parliamentarian Bhagwant Mann to bring them back, following which the Ministry of External Affairs had directed its embassy in Armenia to help them return home. The four of them were received by Mann at the IGI Airport in Delhi on Saturday. They were allegedly defrauded by a travel agent and were sent to Armenia on tourist visa after promising work visa.On Thursday, External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj had tweeted about the plight of four Indians from Punjab. The external affairs minister said the Indian ambassador in Armenia had reached them and was providing all help and assistance.Later in the day, Punjab Chief Minister Amarinder Singh had assured Swaraj that appropriate action would be taken against the travel agents accused of sending them to Armenia fraudulently.
