Russian tourist seeks alms at Kancheepuram temple as his ATM PIN gets locked

EAM Sushma Swaraj took to Twitter and assured all help to Evangelin.

Sushma moved to social media platform Twitter and wrote, Evangelin - Your country Russian Federation is our time-tested friend.

The 24-year- old, identified as A. Evangelin, had a valid passport and visa and arrived in Kancheepuram on Tuesday morning from Chennai.

Indian Foreign Minister Sushma Swaraj has ensured all help to the young Russian scholar, who ran out of cash and was frantically trying to collect some money in order to reach the Russian consulate in Chennai. After mistakenly blocking his ATM's pin code, the foreigner was forced to beg for money outside a temple.

Reports suggest that the Russian youngster arrived in India back on September 24.

He sat outside the temple after he was unable to withdraw money from the ATM and started seeking alms using his cap. Later, when the matter was reported, Siva Kanchi police reached the temple and brought him to the station. After perusing his travel documents, they reportedly gave some money to him for travel to Chennai.

Police officials said that he went to ATM near the Kumarakottam temple to withdraw some cash where he found his ATM PIN was locked.

32-year-old A. Evangelin Berdnikov was found begging outside the main entrance of a temple in the southern state of Tamil Nadu. Earlier on October 10, Swaraj came to the aid of a sick Pakistan national by giving him a medical visa for his liver transplant surgery in India.
