The second batch of diplomats and officials evacuated successfully from Kabul
Finally, after hours of negotiations, India has managed to move out the second batch of diplomats and officials from Kabul via Indian Air Force C-17 heavy-lift aircraft. With the help of the US forces, the IAF aircraft flew from Hamid Karzai Airport at around 8 am Kabul time. Indian ambassador to Afghanistan Rudendra Tandon has departed along with 120 other diplomats and officials.
The Modi government seems to be reluctant to urge about the entire operations. The IAF aircraft that has a capacity of around 8,000 passengers, is expected to arrive in Delhi around 1 pm. India is eyed upon the US forces to allow civilians flights to Kabul for further evacuation of innocent masses. The batch of Indians arrived in India via Air India Flight on Sunday.
Without regime being followed in Kabul, the Indian ministry of external affairs and security started evacuating people to HKI airport this Monday after negotiations took place between Taliban and other terrorist groups deployed on 15 check posts from the Indian mission in Kabul to the international airport.
According to sources from Kabul, this was a part of the deal done that the Turkish forces would take the responsibility of HKI airport but at the very last moment, Ankara withdrew leading to confusion. As all the local staff abandoning the ATC and other positions and illiterate Taliban have no clue how to handle the air traffic services, the whole responsibility is left on the shoulder of the US.
