Terror attack: Indians in Afghanistan safe

New Delhi, April 15: In the wake of Sunday’s terror attack in Afghanistan, India said it was in constant touch with its embassy in Kabul and its citizens living in that country were safe.

Blasts and gun shots were heard inside a luxury hotel in Kabul after militants stormed a building near the UN mission in Afghanistan.

“We are in constant touch with our embassy in Kabul. All Indian citizens are reported to be safe,” said a statement issued by the external affairs ministry here.

Around 4,000 Indians are living in Afghanistan and are engaged in a host of socio-economic reconstruction projects. India has pledged $2 billion for reconstruction of Afghanistan.
