People evacuated from Kabul arrive at Hindon Air Force base near New Delhi, India, Sunday, August 22.

An Indian Air Force plane carrying 168 people from the Afghan capital, Kabul, landed at Hindon Air Force base near New Delhi on Sunday.

A spokesperson from the Indian External Affairs Ministry said the passengers include 107 Indian nationals and 61 others.

He didn’t give the nationalities of the 61 others evacuated.

Meanwhile, another group of 87 Indians who were evacuated from Kabul to Tajikistan on Saturday on an Indian air force plane landed at New Delhi airport on Sunday.
