On Tuesday, a spokeswoman for the Indian foreign ministry in New Delhi said that Indian embassy staff in Kabul, including the ambassador, are being evacuated from the Afghan capital.
“In light of the current circumstances, our ambassador in Kabul and his Indian staff have been ordered to return to India immediately,” spokesman Arindam Bagchi said on Twitter.
Thousands of Afghans fleeing the country flocked to Kabul airport on Monday after the Taleban seized power in Kabul, causing unrest and the deaths of numerous individuals. It caused the US to put a halt to evacuations.
According to media sources, military flights evacuating diplomats and civilians from Afghanistan began taking off from Kabul airport on Tuesday morning after the runway and tarmac were cleared of crowds. According to media sources, the airport reopened at 1935 GMT on Monday (3.35 am Singapore time Tuesday), and the US was in charge of air traffic control for military and commercial planes.
According to sources, some 2,500 US troops are in Kabul to assist with evacuating US employees and Afghans who have worked for them, with more forces likely to come. On Monday, the Taleban assured Kabul citizens that their lives and property are safe and that they can return to work.
