Her father, who accompanied her to Delhi is also in quarantine and expressed his thanks and gratitude to His Majesty The King. “My daughter is with us because of His Majesty’s command that no efforts should be speared for her recovery. We also want to thank all the people of Bhutan for their prayers,” the father said.
