NEW DELHI, April 25, 2033 (TBINN)

First batch of Indians stranded in violence-hit Sudan left the country onboard India’s naval ship I.N.S. Sumedha as part of evacuation mission Operation Kaveri.

External Affairs Ministry Spokesperson Arindam Bagchi said 278 people onboard the ship departed Port Sudan for the Saudi Arabian city of Jeddah.

“First batch of stranded Indians leave Sudan under #OperationKaveri. INS Sumedha with 278 people onboard departs Port Sudan for Jeddah,” Bagchi tweeted.

Notably, India on Monday launched Operation Kaveri to bring back its nationals from Sudan that has been witnessing fierce fighting following a power struggle between the regular army and a paramilitary force.

Earlier, on Sunday, India said it has positioned two transport aircraft of the I.A.F. in Jeddah and naval ship I.N.S. Sumedha at Port Sudan as part of its contingency plans to evacuate the stranded Indians. Before that government on Friday said it was focusing on the safety of over 3,000 Indian citizens currently located throughout Sudan.

It is to be noted here that deadly fighting between Sudan’s army and a paramilitary group for the past 12 days has reportedly left around 400 people dead.
