All Indian students in the troubled Kyrgyzstan cities of Osh and Jalal-Abad have been safely evacuated to the country’s capital Bishkek and are safe, the external affairs ministry said Wednesday.
“All the Indian students have been evacuated safely in aircraft chartered by India and have reached Bishkek,” ministry spokesperson Vishnu Prakash told reporters here.
“Arrangements for their stay and food have already been made. These are arrangements in the International University of Kyrgyzstan,” he added. “The government of India’s primary concern in situations of distress is to get our citizens out of harm’s way in the quickest possible time.
This is precisely what was aimed at and what was achieved to get our citizens out of troubled Osh and Jalal-Abad,” Prakash said.
In the worst ethnic violence in decades, at least 124 people have been killed and more than 1,685 wounded in southern Kyrgyzstan.
