India evacuates 104 Afghans and sends medical supplies back to Kabul on a return trip

On December 10, the Indian government evacuated 94 Afghans and 10 Indians from Afghanistan as part of Operation Devi Shakti. On Friday, a government-chartered special flight arrived at Delhi’s international airport.

Members of Afghanistan’s ethnic populations were among the 104 evacuees. They had two copies of the Sikh holy book Guru Granth Sahib with them, as well as some ancient Hindu writings.

In light of the difficult situation in Afghanistan, the Indian government despatched humanitarian aid consisting of medical supplies for the people of Afghanistan on the return flight from Delhi to Kabul on Saturday.

The drugs will be handed over to World Health Organization (WHO) personnel in Kabul and administered at the city’s Indira Gandhi Children’s Hospital.

Since the Taliban took control of Afghanistan, India has evacuated 669 persons under Operation Devi Shakti. There are 448 Indians and 206 Afghans in this group, which includes members of the Afghan Hindu and Sikh minorities. When the Taliban took control of Afghanistan in August, more than 500 people were evacuated from the nation, including 438 Indians.
