No advisory against travel
The Govt's priority has been to ensure foolproof security, report Nilova Roy Chaudhury and Rajnish Sharma.Updated: May 02, 2006 09:57 IST
One of the officials who had gone to Kabul to negotiate the release of K Suryanarayana returned with his body on Monday.
The official heading the Indian team, KBS Katoch, will return on Tuesday after reviewing the security for Indians working in Afghanistan.
The government's priority has been to ensure foolproof security for Indians working on government projects.
But Suryanarayana's murder has focused attention on Indians working for foreign companies.
No travel advisory has been issued for Indians choosing to work in that country.
Given the level of the government's involvement in Afghanistan's reconstruction and the high strategic stakes there, it cannot tell non-government Indians not to go there.
Para military forces like the ITBP have been deployed for security of government-run establishments.
The next tier would comprise the international security forces in the area, whether US or British or Italian or Poles, who "control" the province or region.
