The Ministry of Defense of Afghanistan said ten military personnel have returned to the country after completing their master’s degree program in India.
The Ministry announced this on Thursday, stating that these military personnel had been sent to India for higher education during the previous Afghanistan administration.
According to the statement, these students returned to the country on Thursday morning in coordination with the Ministry of National Defense upon completing their educational program.
The Ministry claimed it is committed to recruiting and utilizing the expertise of skilled individuals within the government framework.
Afghan students in India have struggled for the past two years because the Indian government has denied them residence visas. This decision has jeopardized their education and put them at risk of expulsion, compelling some to return home.
Meanwhile, a former government army officer in Kandahar province, identified as Khalilullah Akhlaqi, was found dead with stab wounds to his throat and body in a mysterious murder incident on Sunday.
Furthermore, in Takhar province, two other former military personnel were killed by unidentified attackers this month.
On the other hand, the United Nations Assistance Mission in Afghanistan (UNAMA) reports that over 200 former government military personnel have been extra-judicially killed in the past two years, a claim disputed by the Taliban administration, who cite a general amnesty protecting individuals from prosecution.
