A batch of over 800 J&K students stranded in Bangaluru have been evacuated and will be ferried in a train up to Udhampur, officials said on Sunday.
Earlier, the authorities had prepared a list of around 1200 J&K students stranded in Bangalore but around 400 students could not make it to the spot as they received information late.
“We have now accommodated other persons including some patients of J&K. The left off students will now be adjusted in the next schedule,” an official said.
He said the train carrying the stranded students is likely to leave from the Bangalore railway station.
“The students who have registered online for their return were asked to reach Biapanhalli Police station (K R Puram) for their medical examination,” the official said.
