39 missing Indians, kidnapped by ISIS, likely in Iraqi jail: Sushma

Linda fled a year ago after flying from Frankfurt to Turkey before making her way to Syria

After meeting the families of 39 missing Indian citizens in Iraq, Minister of External Affairs Sushma Swaraj on Sunday said she instructed the Minister of State V K Singh to leave for Iraq to rescue the stranded Indians. "The only hope we have is the government, but even they aren't doing anything at this point in time", said Manjeet.

During the recent operation to recapture Iraq's northern city of Mosul, thousands of Daesh terrorists were killed and many others fled the region to Syria and elsewhere, the envoy noted, saying the Iraqi security forces are determined to go after the militants.

The minister told family members of the men, who had been abducted by terror group Islmaic State from Mosul, about information received by Minister of State for External Affairs, V. K. Singh, who had gone to to Iraq.

The minister assured, "Once fighting stops in Badush and the area is cleared, we can probably find out about the whereabouts of the missing nationals".

"The US and its regional as well as their European allies were the main losers of the liberation of Mosul", Borujerdi said on Saturday. But now it seems that those inputs were wrong. They were then taken to a jail in Badush in West Mosul, where fighting between the IS and Iraqi forces is on.

Linda was among 20 ISIS followers seized after Mosul fell following a ten month battle which left 25,000 Jihadists dead

Earlier they told that they have inputs that all youth are in a church in Mosul but now they say their input was not right.

Swaraj on Sunday said her Iraqi counterpart might bring fresh information about them when he visits India on 24 July.

Iraq is facing the challenge of returning residents to their homes in the war-torn city of Mosul.

Notably, out 39 Indians missing in Iraq, majority hail from Punjab.

The mobile phones of all the Indians are not working since past three years and no family member has established any contact with them.
