New Delhi, May 05: The Indian government on Tuesday warned against a WhatsApp message that is circulating with links to Google Forms titled 'RESCUE FLIGHTS FROM INDIA', for stranded Indians.

The Central government is likely to operate 64 flights from May 7 to 13 to bring home around 14,800 Indian nationals stranded abroad because of the coronavirus lockdown.

These special flights would be operated by Air India and its subsidiary Air India Express to repatriate Indians from 12 countries -- the UAE, the UK, the US, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Singapore, Malaysia, Philippines, Bangladesh, Bahrain, Kuwait and Oman, said the officials.
