New Delhi, July 12: There has been a lot of action in Afghanistan after the United States began pulling out troops. On Sunday, the Taliban fighters seized several key areas around Kandahar, following which India evacuated several of its diplomats.
The evacuation took place on Saturday, just a few days after India had said that it had no plans to close its mission in Kabul and consulate in Kandahar. Now videos have surfaced suggesting that the Indian consulate in Kandahar has been taken over by the Taliban. However, official sources in Delhi tell OneIndia that the consulate has been temporarily closed only due to the ongoing security situation. The videos being shared on the social media are not right, sources also say.
