ROURKELA: Three of 12 Nepalese, who survived the devastating earthquake, returned to Rourkela on Sunday. Rest nine survivors are likely to return on Tuesday.

Sources said the Nepalese belong to three families and are settled at Uditnagar here since long. They had gone to Nepal on April 23 to meet their relatives and were stranded there due to the earthquake.

Choote Lama (45), his mother Daya Lama and uncle Man Bahadur reached Rourkela railway station by Jammu-Tawi Express on Sunday night.

 They were all air-lifted to New Delhi from where they took a train to Rourkela.
