The returnees mostly from Churachandpur, Chandel and Kangpokpi are students and migrant workers. When they reached their respective destination, they reported to their respective district authority and accordingly they were kept under surveillance in the quarantine centres.

Rebecca Baite, one of the returnee, said that they are deeply grateful to InSIDE-North East for being so thoughtful and sponsoring the travel while adding that they are stranded here and faced lots of difficulties and happy to get back home.
