The Indian High Commissioner has assured that the Indian’s in Maldives are safe. Till now no violence has been reported against Indian’s.

“Indians here are respected by the locals. Many of Indians are in the teaching profession or are doctors,” an official with the High Commission here said. “The clash has been between political activists, police and army. The foreigners and tourists would not have even come to know about the unrest in the first day,” a source said. He, however, said if fresh violence erupts, spillover effects cannot be ruled out completely.

Indian Prime Minister Mr Manmohan Singh said that it was his sincere hope that the matter would be resolved through peaceful dialogue. New Delhi is against playing an interventionist role in the island, he added.
