Three sniffer dogs deployed for the security of India’s Kabul embassy were among those who returned to the country on Tuesday.

Three dogs – Maya, Ruby and Bobby – landed with 99 commandos of Indo-Tibetan Border Police (ITBP) at Ghaziabad’s Hindon airbase near Delhi on Tuesday, news agency ANI reported.

ANI said the dogs were part of the 150-strong ITBP force deployed at the Indian Embassy in Kabul.

India has evacuated around 150 civilians from the war-torn country since the Taliban captured Kabul on Sunday. The evacuation process was described as a “difficult and complicated” exercise by External Affairs Minister S Jaishankar.

An Indian Air Force aircraft carrying around 120 Indian officers landed in Delhi yesterday after halting at Jamnagar in Gujarat.

Earlier on Monday, about 45 Indians, including embassy staff, were evacuated.
