The evacuated Indians were being assisted by an IAF medical team and support staff onboard the aircraft which left from Tehran with them for the humanitarian assistance mission.
The Indians will be sent to selected quarantine camps soon after their medical observation and they will be kept there under observation for next 15 days, a government official told IANS.
India on Monday night sent C-17 Globemaster to evacuate the Indians. The aircraft took off at around 8 p.m. from Hindon air base on Monday. Indian government has began the evacuation operations from several countries in the wake of the COVID-19 outbreak which spread from Wuhan city in Hubei province of China — the epicenter of the COVID-19.
