New Delhi: Operation Devi Shakti – the name given to the Indian mission of rescuing stranded citizens and several hapless Afghan nationals from the strife-torn nation has so far evacuated more than 800 people since the Taliban takeover.

Meanwhile, 78 people including 25 Indians were airlifted from Tajikistan’s Dushanbe to New Delhi today by a special Air India flight, informed foreign minister S Jaishankar. They were brought to Dushanbe from Kabul.

As part of the mission, union minister Hardeep Singh also received three copies of Guru Granth Sahib from Afghanistan. He also thanked Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Twitter for India’s rescue operations in Afghanistan.

“I want to start by thanking Prime Minister who made it possible to carry out these rescue operations to bring our brethren who are in difficult circumstances there (Afghanistan),” he wrote on Twitter, adding,” I want to compliment the Ministry of External Affairs, External Affairs Minister (EAM) S Jaishankar and minister of State for External Affairs V Muraleedharan for having implemented this.”

Meanwhile, Prime Minister Modi had extensive talks with Rusian President Vladimir Putin over the Afghan crisis on Tuesday. The PM wrote on Twitter that the two sides pledged to forge unanimity on various issues.
