India’s evacuation plane blocked by Taliban at Kabul before takeoff | Afghanistan News | Republic TV

we’re getting in some breaking news now and uh the first flight though has uh landed in jamnagar that’s the indian air force flight that landed with uh with with the diplomatic staff including the ambassador from india to afghanistan are being told that before the evacuation actually happened there was some obstruction from the taliban the taliban tried to obstruct the indian evacuation process and that’s the breaking news update coming in embassy staff and the envoy were blocked and india had to intervene and india had to speak to the taliban commanders to ensure that our diplomatic staff and even the ambassador could reach the airport in the first place so that’s the big breaking news update that’s coming in india and indian diplomats our staff the ambassador included was stopped was stopped at uh at uh the at the embassy by the taliban and india had to intervene and speak to speak to taliban commanders to pull out the to pull out uh you know the uh you know our our staff from there and bring them to the airport even so that’s the breaking news update that i have let me see if shivani can come in with some more details shivani what more are you picking up [Music] what we are learning now is that when the evacuation process uh the whole procedure was going on yesterday that is on monday because we know that the mission started uh on sunday itself one flight had come yesterday to india another c-17 that had landed yesterday that was taking all these embassy people on board and that was obstructed by the taliban commanders and that’s why we were expecting this flight to reach uh late night late night yesterday but it could not reach perhaps this is the reason niranjan white got delayed and in uh today morning this could happen and the flight could take off from kabul we are in fact right now outside the air force station in hinden graziabad where this flight is expected to land in some time from now but what we are learning is that the indian diplomats they had to uh they had to uh negotiate with these taliban commanders who tried to obstruct the evacuation process that was taking place in afghanistan’s kabul airport and we also know that there were itbb personnels also who were fully prepared to tackle the whole situation but the negotiations were done with the taliban commanders and after which they pulled out from the evacuation site from where these people were getting implanted we know that the embassy members including the ambassador in kabul has already landed in india and he has also thanked the indian air force for completing this mission successfully but uh he also said the situation on ground was really harsh we’re being told that the taliban commanders refused to allow our diplomatic staff you know proceed towards the airport in kabul and it was after some sort of talks and negotiations that we were eventually allowed to leave our our mission and and proceed towards the kabul airport now that’s the situation that’s the situation on the ground and hundreds more indians are trapped there how do you see the situation panning out see i think one must speak you know speak directly to the taliban and speak to them and say that we need a one week window or four day window and we are evacuating everybody send 20 planes a day if neatly evacuate everybody take permission of taliban send our security personnel there and get them out because things will deteriorate very fast now uh i’m told by uh certain unnamed sources that uh uh you know this entire new face of taliban is not something that the taliban rank and file their low-level carter really likes these people are used to rape london and village and that is what they had thought about you know when they had entered kabul uh that they would they would go as victorious as in the medieval armies you know pick up whatever they wanted man child woman whatever but now that’s not happening taliban’s top grass is enforcing some sort of discipline and taliban is not a very disciplined force so this will crack and before this happens uh this must be done on an emergency footing one one plane a day is clearly not enough putting 25 planes does not matter charter planes from from private airlines send them there and get our people out and just have a word of taliban and tell them that we need three days four days and by three four days we’ll get everybody out we need your help pay them money if they if they desire pay the taliban money and get our people out because this will bank yeah thank you thank you arya for speaking to us and we will continue to come back to you we have some more pictures coming in but uh let’s go across to sareen as well joining us on the phone line so i’m getting in news that our you know as expected the taliban have stuck to tried to rather obstruct our diplomatic staff from reaching the airport in the first place and that we had to negotiate before they eventually reached jamnagar how do you see india dealing with the situation for now they’ve spoken to the taliban commanders but it’s certainly a sign of things to come [Music] yeah so i don’t think we should have expected anything better and all those people uh you know who’ve been saying that we should continue to hold on in afghanistan try and see how things are going to work out i think you know all our suspicions about the taliban seem to be coming true now whether this move was by the taliban themselves or you know one of their pakistani masters instructed one of these local commanders to obstruct um you know indian diplomats or indian evacuation mission i think that is something which we will have to uh wait and see how uh you know this thing pans out because i don’t think uh our uh all our evacuation missions are over as of now uh we might have pulled out a substantial number of people but i think there are still some evacuation flights which might be uh on the anvil so if this becomes a pattern and if this is something which continues to happen then of course it tells us a lot about you know the lies which is the taliban spokesman shaheen who has been spouting lies to the rest of the world throughout and including to indian channels because that they have absolutely no issues with indians and indians should stay back i think it puts a lie to all of that so that is one part of it but more importantly and more significantly i think it is the amount of influence which the pakistanis exercise on these puppets of theirs called the taliban which seems to be coming out if they don’t exercise that level of influence on the taliban then the taliban leadership should ensure that there is no obstruction to any of the evacuation flights but if there is obstruction then it clearly tells us that it’s the pakistani the
