Manipur violence: Maharashtra students arrive at Mumbai airport in special flight

Students from Maharashtra who were stuck in the violence-hit areas of the north-eastern state of Manipur have been brought back to Mumbai by a special flight on Monday.

The students left Guwahati around 4.30 pm for Mumbai, informed Maharashtra Chief Minister's Office.

After landing safely in Mumbai, the students looked visibly relieved and even posed for photographs with each other.

While talking to ANI, a student Rohit who was stuck in Manipur said, "We want to thank Chief Minister Eknath Shinde. The situation in Manipur was pretty bad, the internet was shut and there were firing."

One of the stranded students who were brought back to Mumbai from Manipur tells about the situation in the northeastern state when violence spiralled out of control a few days ago.

Another student said, "Suddenly attacks started happening. There was open firing too. We witnessed everything in front of our eyes. There was CRPF security near the campus. Still, the students were very scared and everybody wanted to return to their home."
