As the lockdown is still in force, the Odia young women were unable to return to their home state. After a Twitterati brought the attention of Odisha Cadre IPS officer Arun Bothra who in turn talked to Sood, a glimmer of hope for the early return of the 170 Odia young women emerged.

Initially, it was decided to bring back the 170 Odia young women by bus or train from Ernakulam. But Sood proposed to send them in a special plane and accordingly a decision was taken.

Worth mentioning, Sood has been drawing praises from different quarters for helping migrants to reach their home States. Earlier, the Bollywood actor helped 700 migrants from Uttar Pradesh and Bihar stranded ion Mumbai to return to their home states.
