Statement by External Affairs Minister Shri Pranab Mukherjee on the terrorist attack on the Indian Embassy in Kabul


New Delhi
July 7, 2008 

It is with very great regret and a heavy heart that I have to announce that in the terrorist attack on our Mission in Kabul this morning, we have lost five of our personnel. Brig. R.D. Mehta, Defence Attache, Shri V.V. Rao, Counsellor and S/Shri Ajai Pathaniya and Roop Singh both from the ITBP security contingent were killed in the attack. One of our Afghan staff members Mr. Niamatullah was also killed in the attack. Government offers its deepest condolences to their families as also to the families of the others who were killed in this dastardly attack.

A special team under the leadership of Secretary ( West) Shri. Nalin Suri will be flying to Kabul immediately to attend to this emergency situation concerning our Mission.
