REPUBLIKA.CO.ID, JAKARTA - The Indonesian Embassy in New Delhi has managed to establish contact with the nine Indonesian citizens stuck in the floods that have ravaged Takht-e-Sulaeman, Srinagar in India, according to ACT, an Indonesian non-governmental organization (NGO).

According to the press release issued by the Quick Response Act received on Sunday evening, the nine Indonesians were identified as Irma Natalia Tanjung, Mariskha Maria Widjaja, Dewi Vitri Restikasari, Elya Surie, Kontan, Sri Suryani, Rithmi Widanarko, Dedi Suryadi Ilyas, and Herry Utama.

The NGO received information from the Indonesian Embassy in New Delhi, India, on Saturday, September 13. The embassy is still coordinating with the concerned officers in India and Indonesia to help the trapped Indonesian citizens.

The embassy has contacted the nine Indonesian citizens on Friday (September 12). The institution stated that they had been evacuated to safer places. Two citizens have been shifted to New Delhi and seven others are in Chandigarh.

"They will depart for New Delhi to join the other people and continue their return journey to Indonesia," ACT noted.

The ACT has delivered humanitarian assistance since September 9, 2014, and has also coordinated with local Indian humanitarian organizations such as the Zakat Foundation and several volunteers in the Jammu and Kashmir House. The relief aid handed out to the flood victims included blankets, instant food, beverages, and other daily necessities.
