The situation continued to evolve in the neighboring South Asian country after the Taliban takeover. Afghan citizens gathered outside the US embassy in Delhi on Thursday.
They asked the Indian government to help their family members who were stranded in Afghanistan.
Afghanistan was thrown into turmoil after the Taliban seized the capital city of Kabul over the weekend, sparking a humanitarian crisis in the war-torn country.
The problem created massive upheaval in the country as the mass exodus was caused by people who feared the return of the brutal Taliban regime that had ended in 2001 with the entry of the United States.
With most of the troops now withdrawn, various foreign governments, including India, are conducting evacuation operations.
On Tuesday, India withdrew its ambassador and diplomatic staff from Kabul. Prime Minister Narendra Modi held a high-level meeting. He ordered officials to ensure that all Indian citizens are safely evacuated from war-torn Afghanistan.
Almost 200 people, including India’s ambassador to Afghanistan, Rudrendra Tandon, have returned to the country so far.
