Indian Embassy warns citizens ‘utmost caution’ amid Taliban offensive

To curb violence and limit the Taliban movements, a night curfew has been imposed by Afghanistan in 31 provinces besides Kabul, Panjshir, and Nangarhar, the inside ministry mentioned in a press release.

The Indian Embassy in Kabul has warned in its newest advisory, urging “utmost caution”. Terror teams in Afghanistan have escalated violent actions, together with concentrating on civilians.

“All Indians dealing in Afghanistan are advised to exercise utmost vigilance and caution with regard to security at the workplace, place of residence, and also during the movement to their place of work,” the advisory read. It was stressing that the security situation in Afghanistan remains dangerous in several provinces.

Afghanistan has witnessed widespread violence after the US started the withdrawal of troops.

“It is recommended that all types of non-essential movements be avoided. Movements especially during peak commuting hours should also be avoided. While traveling on roads, maintain distance from possible targets like military convoys, vehicles of government ministries or offices, high ranking officials, law enforcement agencies, and avoid visiting crowded markets, shopping complexes, mandis, restaurants, and other public places,” the advisory mentioned.

This decision came after Photojournalist Danish Siddiqui’s demise. From UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres to Joe Biden’s administration, the demise of Danish Siddiqui had led to a worldwide outpouring of tributes.
