A Jharkhand guy, who was employed in Afghanistan since 2018, returned home late Sunday evening, over a week after the Taliban’s expedious capture of Kabul, the country’s capital.
Babloo, a denizen of Gomia in Jharkhand’s Bokaro region, arrived Birsa Munda Airport, Ranchi, on Sunday. He reached the national capital, New Delhi, on Sunday morning.
As the Jharkhand guy landed in Ranchi, he bowed and kissed the ground. Speaking to the press, he said, “I am alive only because of the prayers of thousands of sisters in India made for me and others trapped in Afghanistan during this emergency.”
“Since the Taliban captured Afghanistan, there was disarray all over. They were mercilessly slaughting people. Thousands of Afghans and hundreds like me employed in various private concerns in Afghanistan were just hoping to flee from the country,” Babloo added.
“Many are still confined there, I pray for their safety,” he said.
The Jharkhand man further complimented a social worker, Jyoti Sharma, for supporting him return to India. “My family first got in touch with Jyoti Sharma and briefed her about the situation I was trapped. We have been in regular touch since then via phone.”
“She was in dialogues with the embassy and guided me about the guidelines and how to fill the required application,” added Babloo.
The Bokaro man further stated that he was working in a private office as an operator since 2018.
