    • Indians are now rushing to join the British Army to fight the Taliban.

      They will be entitled to sign up as Commonwealth nationals.

      The current trend can be attributed to the recent threat of a Taliban victory in Afghanistan, which can have dangerous implications for Pakistan.

      Sharat S. Mulchandi, 18, from Karnataka, is undergoing army cadet training at home and plans to join a British infantry regiment when he flies into the UK.

    • In March, there were just 80 Indian nationals in the British Army. The total is expected to rise considerably when new figures are compiled.
