New Delhi, Mar 1: National Security Advisor (NSA) Shivshankar Menon will visit Afghanistan to discuss security of Indians in the country on Mar 5.

This development comes in the wake of the Friday's Feb 26, Kabul attack in which six Indians were killed and 10 others injured.

According to sources, a team of Indian investigators has been rushed to the Afghan capital.

Menon will travel to Kabul on Mar 5 and is expected to meet the top leadership of Afghanistan including President Hamid Karzai.
