India today strongly advised its nationals in Thailand to take "abundant precautions" for their safety in view of the coup in the crisis-hit country.

The Indian Embassy here warned the citizens that the public transport including to and from the airport could be affected from 8 pm (local time) onwards due to a nationwide curfew from 10 pm to 5 am.

The Embassy, while advising all Indian tourists and residents in Thailand to take "abundant precautions" for their safety, urged them to avoid moving around during that period and also avoid areas where demonstrations, political gatherings and marches were likely to take place.

"Those who have flights at night are advised to reach the airport well before curfew time," the embassy said in a notice, adding that they could also ask their hotel to coordinate transport with the military.

Thailand's army today seized power in a coup after nearly seven months of anti-government protests that left the country paralysed.
