New Delhi: The Taliban has released more than 150 Indian nationals abducted outside the gates of Kabul airport. Central government sources said they arrived safely at Kabul airport.

Delhi sources said the citizens were brought by Indian embassy officials to rescue them from war-torn Afghanistan.

They were taken in trucks to the nearest police station for questioning. India had held talks in the background to ensure their release.

The Indians captured by the Taliban were transferred to a garage near the airport. From there they were transferred to the airport, local news agencies in Kabul reported.

The Taliban terrorists checked their travel papers and passports. However, the New York Times' Kabul reporter Sheriff Hassan tweeted that the Taliban had said no such incident had taken place.

The detention came after 85 Indians were airlifted from Kabul this morning. The Indian Air Force plane with 85 Indians landed safely in Tajikistan to refuel. A second aircraft is being prepared in India for further evacuation. The U.S. military, which controls the airport, has not allowed more Indian flights. The United States is focused on evacuating its citizens.

According to government sources, the government is trying to bring as many Indians as possible to Kabul airport and evacuate them.

Although India has evacuated all embassy staff, dozens of Indian nationals remain in various cities in Afghanistan and finding their location and status is a challenge, a Home Ministry official said. They could not register themselves.

Among them are about 200 Sikhs and Hindus who have taken refuge in a gurudwara in Kabul.

External Affairs Minister S Jayasankar said the government is closely monitoring the situation in  Afghanistan and was focusing on the safe evacuation of all civilians.
