With this, 113 people brought from Afghanistan to the Indian Tibetan Border Police facility for the mandated institutional quarantine have been discharged, said ITBP spokesperson Vivek Kumar Pandey.
DHS said in the latest updated released Wednesday that 17% of those arrivals are U.S. citizens and permanent residents who were in Afghanistan when the government there fell to the Taliban. The remaining 83% are a mix of people.
The 29-year-old journalist and nine close relatives managed to board one of the evacuation planes and are now going through the lengthy asylum process while starting a new life in a northern Spanish city.

About 4,000 people, including the Afghans who supported the NATO forces during the war, will be brought to Karachi and Islamabad for stay before being flown to the US.
Union Health Ministry's office memorandum which was issued on Monday said that people arriving from Afghanistan have to undergo a mandatory “minimum 14-day institutional quarantine” at the ITBP facility.
