New Delhi: In a major operation, the Indian Air Force (IAF) personnel are set to bring back 85 Indian nationals tonight from the terror-hit Afghanistan. A C-130 J, an IAF aircraft on Saturday evacuated more than 85 Indian nationals even as lakhs of people face humanitarian crisis post-Taliban takeover.
The plane with over 85 nationals took off from Kabul this morning and landed in Tajikistan for refueling, reports said.
Days ago, another Indian military aircraft C-17 brought back about 150 Indians from Kabul, including the Indian ambassador, diplomats, officials, security personnel and couple of stranded Indians.
The evacuation process has been taking place under challenging circumstances. US forces are keeping control of Kabul airport and monitoring flight movements under strict conditions.
On a day, when Talibani fighters took control of Kabul, uproarious and disturbing scenes emerged from the city. The flood of videos on social media created worldwide panic. Many people were seen clinging to the aircraft desperately in a bid to fly out of the country.
Taliban has tried to assure the locals and the world community that rights of people will be ‘protected under Shariat law’ and they especially women need not worry but their past actions remains a grim reminder of their brutality and bestiality. Last time, they took over Afghanistan 20 years ago, many horrific incidents crime against women were reported.
