The situation in Afghanistan is getting worse. The capitals of many provinces there have now been occupied by Taliban forces. Meanwhile, a security advisory has been issued for the Indians living there. Tweeting from the Twitter handle of the Indian Embassy in Kabul, it has been said that this advisory is related to two security advisories issued recently on June 29 and July 24.
It said that the two advisories given in the two advisories are still valid and all Indians are advised to take all the necessary steps that have been said in those two security advisories.
It further said that in view of the heavy violence in many parts of Afghanistan, commercial flights have been stopped in many provinces and cities. All Indians visiting, working and residing in Afghanistan are advised to keep themselves updated about where the commercial flights are originating from and the commercial flights from where they are before. If it is closed, prepare to return immediately.
The advisory further states that companies operating in Afghanistan are advised to evacuate their Indian employees from project sites in Afghanistan prior to the closure of air services. Simultaneously, Indian nationals working in Afghanistan or for foreign companies are requested to request their employers to make arrangements to travel to India.
