MUMBAI–A youth stranded in Malaysia for a few weeks has returned to India on Friday after Maharashtra Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis intervened, officials said.
Yogesh Tiwari, 25, was duped by a recruitment agent who lured him to Malaysia with a lucrative job offer. After he ran out of money, he tweeted last week to Fadnavis seeking help to return to India.
Fadnavis took up the matter with External Affairs Minister Susma Swaraj.
Tiwari reached Mumbai on Friday, and will proceed to his hometown Yavatmal, the officials said.
