With every passing second, the Taliban is taking over Kabul after a military advance across Afghanistan. On August 15, Afghanistan President Ashraf Ghani has reportedly fled the country as the Islamist militants entered the city.
People falling off plane
Amidst all this, some disturbing video has surfaced on the internet. In the video, one can see people falling off an aircraft that is leaving the Kabul airport. All these people were thought to be holding onto the outside of the aircraft. This is what has come to know that people are going to extreme measures to leave the country.
More than 200 Indians stuck in Kabul
Meanwhile, according to NDTV, over 200 Indians are presumably stuck at the Kabul airport. This group consists of Foreign Ministry Staff and paramilitary soldiers assigned for their protection. They are yet to be evacuated from Afghanistan.
Further, the Afghanistan air space has been closed after the Kabul airport was overrun by thousands in an attempt to flee the country.
It must be mentioned that on August 10, India had notified all its nationals in Afghanistan to depart the country as soon as possible, especially before the flight services are shut down. Further, a special flight was scheduled to help evacuate Indians from Afghanistan.
