Mumbai, Feb 3 (IANS) A third batch of 212 Indians stranded in Egypt, which is in the midst of a political upheaval, arrived here early Thursday in a special flight.

Air India flight AI-160 landed with the Indians at 5.30 a.m., an official said.

This is the third flight to Mumbai in Air India’s efforts to bring back the Indians stuck in Egypt.

Earlier this week, two flights carrying 320 and 280 passengers respectively arrived in this city.

Air India flew a Boeing 747-400 from Mumbai to Cairo to bring the stranded Indians late Wednesday.

The airline had made it clear that though it was carrying a humanitarian mission, it would charge the passengers Rs.45,000 each to cover the costs of operations.
