According to Vikramjit Singh Sahney, international president of the World Punjabi Organization, a group of 110 stranded Afghan Sikhs and Hindus would arrive at the Indira Gandhi International Airport in New Delhi on Friday by a special Kam Air flight.

Gurnam Singh of Karte Parwan Central Gurdwara told The Indian Express over the phone from Kabul that a group of 110 Afghan Sikhs and Hindus left for the airport in the morning."Nearly a hundred Sikhs and Hindus are still left here but some of them can't leave due to personal reasons and others might come in coming days if another flight operates," he said.

Three saroops of the Sri Guru Granth Sahib from historical gurdwaras in Afghanistan, as well as Hindu religious scriptures such as the Ramanaya, Mahabharata, and Bhagvad Gita from the ancient Asamai Mandir in Kabul, are being flown to India, according to Puneet Singh Chandhok, president of the Indian World Forum.

The Sikh sacred scriptures will be brought to Gurdwara Guru Arjan Dev Ji in Mahavir Nagar, Delhi, while the Hindu religious scriptures will be taken to the Asamai Mandir in Faridabad after they arrive.
