The officials said the force personnel is among the last of the diplomatic staff of the embassy who are present in the country.
The security unit of the ITBP is actively securing the embassy staffers. They will carry out their duties till it is required, the officials said.
They refused to divulge the strength of the people and the armed security personnel owing to the sensitivity of the fast-changing situation in Afghanistan.
The ITBP was first deployed to secure the premises of the India embassy in Kabul, diplomats, and staffers in November 2002.
It later sent additional detachments to guard the Indian consulates located in Jalalabad, Kandahar, Mazar-e-Sharif, and Herat.
