A close source of Sonu Sood informed that the girls stuck in Ernakulam, Kerala, due to lockdown. They were working as a stitching and embroidery laborers at a local textile factory there. The factory got closed due to the coronavirus pandemic. Because of this, they were all stranded without proper arrangements. The girls belong to the village Kendrapara in Odisha, which is approximately 2000 km from Ernakulam.
A source said that someone came to know about Sonu Sood’s Ghar Bhejo Initiative and contacted him. Since it was difficult to send these girls home via road, Sonu Sood and his team decided to airlift them from the Cochin airport. Both airports Cochin airport and Bhubaneshwar airport operated for a few hours. A special aircraft has been arranged from Bengaluru to airlift the girls. The flight also transported ten migrant laborers working in the plywood factory. Sonu Sood sponsored the tickets. The aircraft departed from Cochin airport at 8 AM and reached Bhubaneshwar at 10:30 AM. The buses were also arranged for the girls from Bhubaneshwar to their hometown Kendrapara.
