The bodies of the four Indians who were killed in an attack on a guesthouse during an hours-long siege in Kabul, Afghanistan, are to be flown back to India in a special airplane on Friday morning, reported Zee News.

Four Indians, including a woman, were among the 14 people killed in the attack, an Indian embassy source told IANS over the phone.

According to NDTV, the special flight is slated to land in Afghanistan today at 11 am, and bring the bodies back to Delhi where the state government resident commissioners would make arrangements to take them to their respective families.

The four Indians have been identified as Mathew George, RK Bhatti, Satish Chandra and Martha Farrel, army sources told Zee News. While two of them were from Kerala, one was from Chandigarh and one from Andhra Pradesh, the report said.

On the evening of May 13, the gunmen stormed the Park Palace Guest House in Kabul. Afghan special forces arrived on the scene and killed three armed assailants after five hours of gunfire, the Kabul Police chief Abdul Rahman Rahimi told PTI.
