11 December, 2021 – Chandigarh: India brought three copies of the Guru Granth Sahib and Hindu religious texts from the ancient Asamai Mandir in Kabul in its evacuation flight on Friday.
The flight, arranged under India’s operation Devi Shakti, evacuated 104 people, including 10 Indian nationals, from Kabul in a special charter aircraft, External Affairs Ministry Spokesperson Arindam Bagchi said on Friday.
The operation was launched to evacuate Indians from Afghanistan after it fell to the Taliban on August 15. India arranged a special Kam Air flight for the evacuation. Several people, including Afghanistan’s Sikhs, were left stranded in the country after the Taliban’s takeover and the west’s chaotic retreat from the country at the end of August.
