New Delhi: A special chartered flight from Kabul brought more than a 100 people, mostly Afghan Sikhs and Hindus and a few Indians, to Delhi on Friday afternoon.

The flight, chartered by India, will also take back around 90 stranded Afghan nationals and medicines from here.

The India World Forum had said that the flight would also bring back three Guru Granth Sahib and Hindu scriptures inlcuding the Ramayana, the Mahabharata and the Bhagwad Gita from the centuries-old Asamai Mandir of Kabul.

In its statement, the forum said the Afghan nationals would be rehabilitated by the Sobti Foundation.

“It is pertinent to mention that the family of Mahram Ali, a local security guard who was killed during the terror attack in Gurdwara Guru Har Rai, Shor Bazar, Kabul is also being facilitated and being airlifted and will be rehabilitated by Sobti Foundation,” the statement read.

Earlier, India had evacuated several of its nationals and Afghan Hindus and Sikhs who wanted to come here after the Taliban took over Afghanistan in August this year.
