Afghanistan is becoming increasingly turbulent in the fight between the Taliban and government forces. In this situation, the Indian embassy in Kabul issued a warning to Indian tourists and working citizens visiting the country.
“The situation in Afghanistan is dangerous,” the official guideline said on Saturday. Terrorist groups are targeting ordinary people. Indians are also likely to be attacked. In this situation, Indians have been advised not to go to Afghanistan unnecessarily. Workers in that country have been asked to be especially careful when traveling on the roads. The guidelines also say not to go to crowded markets, shopping malls, temples and restaurants.
The Indian consulates in Mazar-i-Sharif and Kandahar have recently been closed due to growing Taliban dominance in Afghanistan. Work is also underway to repatriate Indian diplomats and security personnel working there. The foreign ministry is also concerned about the security of the Indian embassy in Kabul following the Taliban’s rocket attack this week. Because the embassy has been targeted by militants more than once in the last two decades. Meanwhile, the deployment of Pakistani troops on the Afghan border has raised renewed fears about the safety of Indians working in Afghanistan.
