Nagpur Police recently came to rescue of an Indian-origin UK citizen, who lost his belongings and started walking from Guntur in Andhra Pradesh for Delhi, by making sure he reaches his destination.
The British citizen Austin Vyankatesh Naga Permabaturi had come to India in October 2019 to perform some rituals after his father passed away in June 2019. Austin stayed and travelled in India for a long time and then reached Gudur on March 19, 2020.
After the nationwide lockdown was implemented in India on March 22, Austin got stuck in Gudur for a few months. On August 12, while on his way from Gudur to Guntur, Austins bag, which had all his belongings, was stolen. Left with no money and phone, Ausitn started walking towards Delhi from Guntur.
On August 18, Austin reached Nagpur’s Indora area and started enquiring about the road to Delhi. As he Austin speaks English and not Hindi, he could not communicate his problem to people he spoke to.
As soon as Nagpur Police got to know about Austin, he was approached and help was extended. As Austins feet were swollen because of the long journey, he was provided with treatment, food and a place to stay. Nagpur Police also arranged for his travel from Nagpur to Delhi through train and from Delhi Railway station to British Embassy.
On August 20, Austin reached Delhi and informed Nagpur Police, because of whom Austin will now be able to go back to his country.

Nagpur citizens to revel The Raaas Garba next year!
Since The Raaas enchanted and enthralled Nagpur with its quality garba in its first year in 2018, the demand for encore has been reverberating the city. To cater to the huge public demand, the organisers of the king of garbas have decided to continue The Raaas next year on. Like its first year, The Raaas Garba will be presented to Nagpur in association with Nation Next in 2023. Mahesh Kukreja, the key organiser said, “Because of some reasons, we, earlier, thought of giving the event a break.”
He added, “Then COVID-19 struck the world. Now we plan to continue it from next year onwards. While I express my gratitude to Nagpurians to make the event a huge hit, I request the city’s garba revellers to not get fooled as a few garbas are falsely claiming to be The Raaas. We’ll be back next year for sure!”
