New Delhi/UNI: Nearly 2,500 Indians, who were rescued from Sudan, have arrived in India so far, while India has successfully evacuated around 3,000 of its nationals from the strife-hit country under Operation Kaveri so far.

Ministry of External Affairs spokesperson Arindam Bagchi in a tweet said that the 9th outbound flight from Jeddah, where India has set up a coordination centre, has landed in India ferrying 186 passengers.

“#OperationKaveri continues to bring Indians back home. Flight carrying 186 passengers touches down in Kochi.”

Meanwhile, another IAF C-130J flight carrying the 16th batch of evacuees left Port Sudan carrying 122 passengers.

With this nearly 3,000 persons have now left Sudan under Operation Kaveri, the MEA said.

Last night an A C-130 Indian Airforce flight landed in New Delhi with 40 passengers.

With this flight, around 2,300 people have reached India, the MEA said.
