Bengaluru/IBNS: IT major Infosys flew back some of its employees and their family members in a special chartered flight, who were stranded in the United States due to the coronavirus pandemic and visa issues.

Some 200 people-employees and their families-were flown to Bengaluru from the US in a special flight.

The employees, who reached Bengaluru on Monday morning, will be working from the hi-tech city or other locations in India.

Infosys co-founder Nandan Nilekani, retweeting a post, wrote on Twitter: "Infosys: compassionate capitalism at work!"
