In a statement, the External Affairs Ministry said it was not only an attack on the Afghan people but also an attack on their identity and culture.

"What makes this attack particularly reprehensible is the fact that the terrorists and their backers chose the festive day of Nauroz to carry out their heinous act," it said.

India stands ready to extend all possible assistance, including for the treatment of those injured, the ministry asserted.

"Our thoughts and prayers are with the family members of the victims, and we wish quick and complete recovery to the injured," it added.

An Islamic State suicide bomber struck on the road to a Shiite shrine in Afghanistan's capital on Wednesday, killing at least 29 people.

The Public Health Ministry said another 52 people were wounded in the attack, which was carried out by a bomber on foot.
