    Tracking Operation Kaveri: India's massive rescue ops for stranded citizens in Sudan

    After the unfolding of the Sudan crisis, India has begun ‘Operation Kaveri’ – a rescue operation by the Indian Navy and Indian Air Force (IAF) to rescue hundreds of citizens stranded in the region.
    The Indian officials in Sudan are in regular touch with the stranded Indians and advise them on the viability of safe movement and the need to avoid unnecessary risks,” the MEA stated, confirming that the two Indian Air Force C-130J aircraft are currently positioned on standby in Jeddah airport while INS Sumedha has reached Port Sudan.
    He stated that around 500 Indians had already reached Port Sudan, and more were on their way.
    As per a recent press release by the Indian Navy, “INS Sumedha, presently deployed in the Mediterranean Sea, entered Algiers, Algeria on 26 March 2023 for an operational turnaround.
    However, the recent clash between the Rapid Support Force (RSF) and the Sudanese military has added complexity to the situation.
    Eyewitnesses reported gunfire and explosions in the city, and social media was flooded with videos of the clashes.
