All residents of Himachal stranded in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, are safe. They have been lodged in the Riyadh Deportation Centre and efforts are on to get them released at the earliest.

Of the 14 stranded, one person — Onkar Chand from Punjab — has been deported while two citizens, Tanuj Kumar and Devender Kumar, from Mandi district have been released with the help of their sponsors.
