150 Indians Returned Home from Kabul

afghanistan-taliban crisis: 150 indians return back to India on an air plane

An Air Force plane has returned home with 150 Indians from Kabul, the capital of Afghanistan. Indian Air Force C-17 aircraft landed in Jamnagar, Gujarat. He was given a warm welcome as soon as he returned to the soil of India. Indians raised slogans of ‘Bharat Mata Ki Jai’ and ‘Vande Mataram’ at the Jamnagar airbase as soon as they returned home.

After reaching Jamnagar in Gujarat, Indian envoy to Afghanistan Rudrendra Tandon said, “Indian nationals being brought back are not registering themselves. We have advised that it is necessary that Indian citizens register themselves with the Indian Embassy so that we can bring them back at such times. Thanks to the Indian Air Force for bringing us back from the unusual situation. An official said, the IAF’s C-17 aircraft landed at Jamnagar airport at 11.15 am. When the passengers aboard the plane got off the plane, the people present there welcomed them. The people who arrived here by plane include Indian Embassy officials and security personnel in Kabul.

Earlier, the C-19 aircraft of the Indian Air Force returned to India on Monday with some personnel from Afghanistan and on Tuesday the second aircraft has come to India. However, many Indians are still trapped in Kabul.

The Taliban captured Kabul on Sunday after the US-backed government in Afghanistan collapsed and the country’s President Ashraf Ghani fled the country. The Taliban have retaken the country after the 9/11 attacks, 20 years after US-led forces arrived in Afghanistan. External Affairs Minister S Jaishankar said that India is continuously monitoring the situation in Kabul. There is news that Mullah Abdul Baradar could likely to be the next Afghan President.

Jaishankar is in New York for a four-day tour of America. He said he discussed the recent developments in Afghanistan with US Secretary of State Antony Blinken. He also said that the Indian government is in constant touch with the leaders of the Sikh and Hindu communities in Kabul and they could possibly make arrangements to bring back Indians in Afghanistan. Jaishankar said, “In view of the situation in Kabul, it is important that we have accurate information about Indians there. It is appealed that all concerned should provide information in this regard to the Special Afghanistan Cell of the Ministry of External Affairs.”
