The situation in Afghanistan is deteriorating after the capture of the Taliban. Amidst the chaos of people at Kabul airport, India is constantly trying to evacuate its people from there. At the same time, an Air India flight carrying 78 passengers including 25 Indian nationals is coming from Dushanbe in Tajikistan to New Delhi. The Indian Ministry of External Affairs has said that the government is committed to the safe return of all Indian nationals from Afghanistan.
Foreign Ministry spokesman Arindam Bagchi said on Twitter that people have been evacuated from Kabul. Bagchi tweeted, 'Helping for a safe return from Afghanistan. Air India's 1956 flight is coming from Dushanbe to Delhi carrying 78 passengers, including 25 Indian nationals. Passengers on board the flight thanked the Indian government for its safe return from Afghanistan. During this, people also raised slogans of 'Wah Guru Ka Khalsa, Wahi Guru Ki Fateh' in the aircraft. Earlier, Indian officials on Monday evacuated 75 Sikhs amid the deteriorating situation in war-torn Afghanistan.
The situation in Afghanistan continues to worsen as people rush to leave the country since the Taliban came under control last week. The country's government fell soon after President Ashraf Ghani left the country on August 15.
730 people rescued
It is not easy to evacuate Indians as well as citizens of Afghanistan amidst the current situation in Kabul and the chaos at the airport. The biggest problem is to take them to the airport. Despite all these challenges, India has so far been successful in evacuating 730 people from there safely. These include Afghan Hindus and Sikhs as well as Nepali citizens.
