Indian embassy in Kabul say no searches yet amid reports of Taliban raids at missions

Amid reports of the Taliban entering Indian consulates in Kandahar and Herat, the local staff of the embassy in Kabul has said no such raids have happened at the establishment.

Sources have said the local staff of the Indian embassy in Kabul that there has been no such incident, including searching or ransacking, that has taken place.

There are reports that as part of a new drill, the Taliban have gone to all foreign missions in Afghanistan that have been evacuated in the past week to seek details from the local staff.

The consulates in Kandahar and Mazar-e-Sharif have also been searched by the Taliban fighters, said the reports, but no building has been occupied by them. All foreign missions have been surrounded by the Taliban and cordoned off for common people.

The Taliban leadership had earlier said that they have asked the fighters to refrain from entering empty embassy establishments of other nations and also not manhandle their vehicles etc.

However, the latest reports of raids on the Indian missions stand in sharp contrast to the words of the Taliban leaders.

India operates four embassies in Afghanistan, while the ones in Kandahar, Herat and Mazar-e-Sharif have been emptied, the Kabul consulate has remained open to coordinate the rescue efforts.
