Suspected Taliban fighters entered Gurdwara Karte Parwan, the main Sikh shrine in Afghanistan capital Kabul, on Tuesday and damaged CCTV cameras and broke several locks, according to members of the Afghan Sikh minority.

Puneet Singh Chandhok, head of the Indian World Forum, who has played a role in facilitating the evacuation of members of Afghanistan’s Hindu and Sikh minorities, tweeted that armed men entered the gurdwara and “vandalised” it.

A member of the Afghan Sikh minority, Sardar Govind Singh, said in a video posted on social media that the armed men damaged most of the CCTV cameras at the gurdwara and broke open several locked doors.

Several posts on social media said the armed men who entered the gurdwara were believed to be Taliban members.
