Indian medical mission's ops in Kabul suspended

By The Assam Tribune

KABUL, March 6 (PTI): Operations of the Indian medical mission in Kabul have been suspended as many of its staff were either injured or killed in last week's terror attack in the Afghan capital.

Sources said there was no adequate staff to run the mission as one of them was killed and some others of the 11-member team were injured in the February 26 attack.

They, however, asserted that the mission would not be wound up and operations would resume as soon as adequate staff is available again. There was also no downsizing of the embassy staff either, the sources said. However, tele-medicine will continue to be available to Afghans from Chandigarh's PGI and a Lucknow hospital, the sources said.

The Indian medical mission of six doctors and five paramedics was functioning from the Indira Gandhi Child Care Hospital set up here under India's assistance programme.
