New Delhi: India issued an urgent advisory for Indian nationals in Kenya amid a chaotic situation there as thousands of people are protesting against a controversial bill that introduced new taxes in the impoverished country. The situation escalated when police resorted to opening fire on protesters as they stormed into the parliament building after tear gas and water cannons failed to disperse the crowd.

“In view of the prevailing tense situation, all Indians in Kenya are advised to exercise utmost caution,  restrict non-essential movement and avoid the areas affected by the protests and violence till the situation clears up,” wrote the Indian embassy in Kenya on X.

Thousands of protesters barged into the Kenyan Parliament in the capital Nairobi on Tuesday and a part of the building was seen ablaze, amid massive protests in the African country with angry protesters demanding legislators to vote against new taxes proposed in the bill.
