Zimik, 25 of Mapao Zingtun village, who is pursuing a Masters in Divinity at South Korea’s Hoseo University was on his way back to New Delhi from Seoul via a connecting flight, Air Asiana KC 907
at Almaty, Kazakhstan which was due for departure on January 6 but got stranded in Kazakhstan due to the political unrest after protests over a fuel price hike that erupted in the country.

“By the time my turn came, all the rooms were taken. The Korean officials tried their best to help me. Then I started looking for another hotel on my own. The streets were all quiet and there were very few people out. I got a room in the hotel where I am staying now — after walking for hours. Later, I tried reaching out to the Indian mission but could not do so. Finally, that happened through my parents in India,” Zimik told The Indian Express.
