The students who returned from Ukraine on Sunday gathered along with their parents at Delhi's Jantar Mantar demanding admission to Indian institutions for their remaining education.

A majority of the Indian students who were forced to leave Ukraine due to the ongoing Russian invasion of the country were pursuing the MBBS course. "Government should save our children's careers the way they saved their lives and brought them back from Ukraine," parents said.

To recall, West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee, earlier had asked Prime Minister Narendra Modi to help students who have returned from war-hit Ukraine to Bengal. In the letter, she asked the prime minister to ensure that these students can enroll in Indian colleges and continue their medical education.

A bench comprising Chief Justice N V Ramana and Justice Krishna Murari took note Attorney General K K Venugopal's submissions that the Centre, besides bringing back stranded students, is also looking into the representation on their studies being hit by the ongoing war.

Lawyer Vishal Tiwari, who filed a PIL in his personal capacity, raised the issue of the continuation of studies of those rescued from the war-hit nation.
