Indian army high-ups have directed all 29 members of the broadcast crew to head to Dubai first and then catch a direct flight for India.

However, the broadcast crew has requested the Indian government to grant them entry from Wagah-Attari border crossing as going to Dubai during the pandemic could expose them to the Coronavirus. The crew has also pledged to undergo self-quarantine for 14 days once they step into India.

Ankit Rawat, one of the members of the crew abandoned by the Indian Army, took to Twitter to describe the ordeal.
