Over 280 Indians waiting to fly back from Afghanistan

Kabul, August 21 (KMS): Over 280 Indians, including about 100 women, have been waiting in a hall for the past 24 hours to fly back from Afghanistan, a Kashmiri professor said from Afghanistan.

Professor Asif, serving in an Afghan university, said: “We were informed on social media by a person coordinating with Indian nationals to reach a wedding hall to help them fly back to their country from Afghanistan.”

He said, though shops and business establishments are open outside the hall, but they are not being allowed to move out by the guards posted at the main gate for security reasons.

Prof Asif said, they were contacted on social media and after getting registered they were taken under proper security arrangements from the university hostel to the wedding hall, which is just five or six kms from the airport.
