Two Indian teachers freed from IS in Sirte return home
Two Indian teachers, who were rescued last week after over a year-long captivity by IS terrorists in Libya, returned home on Saturday.
T. Gopikrishna and C. Balram Kishan reached here from New Delhi in the early hours.
They merely said they were happy to reunite with their families, but declined to answer any queries from the media or share their experiences in captivity.
The two teachers of the University of Sirte were abducted by IS militants on July 29, 2015 while on their way to Tripoli airport to return to India.
External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj had announced on September 15 that they had been rescued.
