I wasn't able to view any non-english characters in chrome. It just appeared as squares. When I accidentally ranapt-get -t stretch-backports upgrade It somehow got fixed.

Now I renistalled the debian and would like to get only that specific package from backports. What might be the exact package?

Kernel version version: 4.19.0-0.bpo.2-amd64 (backports)
Chrome version: 72.0.3626.119


There is one big meta package fonts-indic, but there are also lots of other indian font packages. Can't really tell which one you are looking for. But none of these are in stretch-backports.
