Puri, Aug 7: The administration has started taking steps to get the VISA for the 38-year-old Kyrgyzstan national, who has reached Puri after he lost it in Vrindaban.
A 38-year-old man from Kyrgyzstan braved all odds to reach Puri after he lost his VISA and other necessary documents in Vrindavan.
Uluk Bek's father was a disciple of the International Society for Krishna Consciousness (ISKCON). He developed a love for Sanatana Hindu Dharma (religion) during his college days by reading books of ISKCON brought by his father.
His love for this religion landed him in India with a student VISA in 2017 quitting his job as an engineer and he stayed at Sri Sri Partha Sarathi Ashram in New Delhi as a disciple changing his religion to Sanatan Hindu.
After four years he shifted to Vrindavan where he lost his VISA and other important documents needed for staying in India as an outsider.
He urged to return back his home in Kyrgyzstan but it needs VISA and ticket cost that is over Rs 50,000. So, he decided to come to Puri to pray to Lord Jagannath to make arrangements for his return back home.
As he had no money, Uluk walked down all the way from Vrindavan to Puri and reached here last week. There, he worked for two days in a car servicing center. When he started searching for a job in the pilgrim town, employers asked him for VISA. Later, locals helped him to reach the office of the Director of the Intelligence Bureau (DIB).
The DIB officials and Sea Beach Police Station, Puri helped him in getting VISA. The officials have also contacted the passport office in Hyderabad.
“We have contacted the Indian Ambassador in Kyrgyzstan. He will be sent to Hyderabad first and to his country following completion all the formalities”, said Sea Beach Police Station IIC Manas Ranjan Chakra. Now, he is staying at the Urban Shelter Home at Sarbodaya Nagar in Puri since August 2, added Chakra.
