India evacuated its embassy in Kabul amid escalating humanitarian crisis in Afghanistan. A special Air Force flight is bringing back the country’s Ambassador to Afghanistan, along with other staff and ITBP troops.
“In view of the prevailing circumstances, it has been decided that our Ambassador in Kabul and his Indian staff will move to India immediately (sic),” Arindam Bagchi, Spokesperson, Ministry Of External Affairs, tweeted this morning.
Afghanistan is witnessing its worst political crisis in two decades as Taliban returned to power on Sunday evening, months after the US withdrawal of troops from the South Asian country. Shocking visuals showed the terrorists inside the Presidential Palace, shortly after President Ashraf Ghani fled the country.
