Prime Minister Narendra Modi condemned the attack om Kabul University. He added that India will continue to support Afghanistan.

As reported by NDTV, Survivors described the horrific scenes when a suicide bomber blew himself up inside the campus. Soon two gunmen started shooting sending hundreds of students scrambling over perimeter walls. The students were besieged for two hours before being rescued. It took Afghan security forces, supported by US troops, several hours to declare the attack over.

The Taliban promptly issued a statement denying they took part in the assault. Later in the day, Islamic State claimed responsibility for the attack on Kabul University on Monday, the group’s Amaq News Agency said.

Last month, the Islamic State group had sent a suicide bomber into an education centre. This was in the capital’s Shiite dominated neighbourhood of Dasht-e-Barchi. The bomber killed 24 students and injured more than 100.
