Many from State stuck in Libyan city

Many from State stuck in Libyan city

In an email to Deccan Herald, Dr Ashok Nagaral of Gokak in Belgaum district, on Monday said those stranded in Sheba have no conveyance to reach Tripoli, capital of Libya.

There  are no local flights to Tripoli from where the government has arranged plane services to India.

There are 250 doctors, nurses, teachers and 3,000 workers at DSK construction company who are awaiting help to escape the chaos. Nagaral appealed to the government to send a flight to Sheba to repatriate thousands more caught in the revolt against Muammar Gadhafi’s regime in Libya. 

According to Nagaral, when they contacted the Indian Embassy, the officials had asked them to get to the airport in Tripoli somehow. “Our repeated requests to pick us from Sheba airport failed to evoke any response. The official asked us to collect a paper from the Embassy and go to airport somehow and wait for our turn. We cannot take the risk of entering the city just for the sake of collecting some papers from the Embassy,” he pointed out. 

Instead, he wanted the officials to check passport details to confirm their nationality.
“The evacuation order can be mailed to us, so that we can use it when they start flight operations to Tripoli. Entering the city of Tripoli, where the bloody battle is still on, is dangerous,” Nagaral said.
