Coronavirus: Over 1,000 Hong Kong residents remain stranded in India

“I’m stranded in Pune, a three-hour drive from Mumbai,” Mehek Kumar, 42, a permanent resident of Hong Kong told HKFP via phone call. “My family, my son, husband and in-laws, are in Hong Kong. It’s been really difficult for me and my nine-year-old daughter who are stuck here.”

Kumar, the director of a company, is one of more than 1,000 Hong Kong residents who are stranded in India after Prime Minister Narendra Modi declared a country-wide lockdown on March 25, in response to the Covid-19 outbreak.
