Miraj Jiwa Khan, who just returned to New Delhi from Ukraine, paying Rs a whopping 40,000 for the one-way ticket, said “The panic created by the media across the world has cost us a fortune to return home. Our career is hanging by the thread. Our families are so worried that we had no choice but to return home, paying whatever air ticket prices are.”
Jiwan, a resident of Ratlam is a fourth-year medical student at Ternopil National Medical University in Ukraine. He stated he never wanted to return without confirmation about the online classes. Several of them were reluctant to return home saying they couldn’t afford the travel costs and also awaited confirmation of online classes from their universities.
