After the deadly terrorist attacks that shook Sri Lanka on Easter, there is a widespread crackdown on terrorists and their hideouts going on in the country.
Taking the prevailing security situation in Sri Lanka in the aftermath of terror attacks on 21 April 2019, Indian nationals intending to travel to the country are advised not to undertake non-essential travel.
Here is what the government of India said:
“In case of those undertaking essential/emergency travels, they can contact the High Commission of India in Colombo or the Assistant High Commission in Kandy / Consulates in Hambantota and Jaffna in case of requirement of any assistance. The helpline numbers of the Indian High Commission are available on the Mission’s website.
The Government of Sri Lanka has beefed up the security in the country. A nation-wide emergency including night time curfew is in place at present which may also affect travel within Sri Lanka.”
India has offered her help for the neighbour; Indian External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj had conveyed to the Foreign Minister of Sri Lanka that India is ready to provide all humanitarian assistance. In case required, India is still ready to despatch the medical teams as well.
