At least four students from Assam were among the first batch of Indian nationals evacuated from war-torn Ukraine as they landed at Mumbai and New Delhi on separate flights on Saturday night, and Sunday morning.

Chief Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma confirmed the arrival of the four students on Twitter.

“We welcome our students – Tanmayee & Siya, successfully evacuated from Ukraine and who have reached Mumbai just now,” Sarma tweeted late Saturday night to announce the arrival of the two students.

He stated that they were welcomed by Assam Bhavan officials in Mumbai and that all plans for their accommodation and free transportation to Guwahati were being arranged.

The chief minister confirmed the arrival of two more students in another tweet on Sunday morning. He tweeted, “Miss Himashree Kakati from Bongshar Sualkuchi, and Ms Daisy Basumatary from Maligaon Guwahati, both studying medicine in UZHNU Ukraine, have been evacuated by MEA and on their arrival in Delhi today at 9-15 am received by officials from Assam Bhawan, Delhi.”

The Assam government began the process of gathering information about citizens from the state who are stranded in Ukraine.

More than 100 students hailing from Assam are currently stranded in various parts of Ukraine, according to estimates.
