Many heartbreaking videos of Indian students stranded in Ukraine are doing rounds on the internet. Describing their plight, they are requesting early evacuation. Some students who have returned from Ukraine are making some serious allegations against the Indian embassy.
A video of a girl went viral on the internet where she alleged that students in Ukraine were asked to clean toilets if they want to get evacuated first.
“The people of Romania helped us well, gave us a place to stay and fed our stomach. We met the Indian Embassy people in Romania and they treated us very badly. They offered us that whoever cleans the toilets, they will be taken to India first and the rest of the people later,” said Pratibha Vinistia, a resident of Saharsa, Bihar.

Pratibha further said, “After traveling 14 hours by bus, we reached the Romania border. The students were so tired that no one wanted to clean the toilets, but they also wanted to go back to India as soon as possible. There was so much eagerness to go home that some students went to clean the toilet.”
Pratibha who is a fourth-year medical student went on to add, “We tried to get in touch with Indian Embassy officials, but none of the Embassy officials responded to calls or messages. When a friend of ours posted a video on Facebook to show the reality, immediately got a call from the Embassy asking to delete the video immediately.”
