External affairs minister Sushma Swaraj said on Thursday the Indian ambassador to Armenia has contacted the four people from Punjab, who sought help saying they were stranded there, after reading a Hindustan Times’ report on the issue.

They claimed they had not eaten for five days and that their landlord has asked them to leave his house.
“I have seen the news report in Daily Hindustan dated 7th February reg four Indians from Punjab who are stranded in Armenia. Indian Ambassador in Armenia has reached them and is providing all help and assistance. @IndiainArmenia,” Sushma Swaraj tweeted.
