An alternate flight is en route to India to take Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and his delegation home, who arrived in New Delhi for the G20 Summit and are now stranded after their plane broke down,

The ferry aircraft to fly them back was expected to land at the Delhi airport on Monday night, sources said earlier.

​The Canadian Prime Minister's office said on Monday the Canadian Armed Forces continue their best efforts to get the delegation home. "We will keep you updated regularly as the situation evolves. Their latest update shows an earliest possible departure of Tuesday late afternoon. The situation remains fluid," Press Secretary Mohammad Hussain said in the statement.

Trudeau and his officials, who were to leave Delhi after the G20 summit on Sunday, are stranded here due to technical issues with their aircraft, which is why they spent another night in New Delhi. The plane is yet to be fixed.

Canada on Monday said the earliest possible departure of Trudeau and his delegation from the national capital is Tuesday late afternoon.
