Bodies of 39 Indians, abducted by ISIS in Iraq, found: Swaraj

39 Indians killed by Islamic State in Iraq

"We knocked every door thinking some of them may have escaped". We feel betrayed from all sides, Kaur further said. "We were always told us that they (39 Indians) were alive", Kaur told ANI, adding that "we don't demand anything from the government". "He had left for Iraq in 2013". They have been saying that Harjit Masih, the lone survivor, is a liar. "I say with a heavy heart they have been killed".

In 2014, India had issued a travel advisory telling its citizens to not travel to Iraq, and those already there to leave. "I can't share the details with you, but I have shared [them] with Harsimrat [Badal] and Prakash Singh Badal who was then the Chief Minister of Punjab", Ms. Soni said.

"I don't know what to say". "I can not praise him enough".

"They were killed in front of my eyes", he told reporters Tuesday in his north Indian home village. But we are a government here. "We last talked to each other in 2015". They had taken DNA samples 2-3 months back.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Tuesday took to Twitter to express his grief over the death 0f 39 Indians in Mosul.

ISIS, led by its elusive leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, had seized a third of Iraq's territory in 2014, before being pushed back by security forces backed by a US-led coalition. "I have a small child, I have no support", said wife of another victim.

External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj has said that the 39 Indians have been confirmed dead after verification of their DNAs, in Rajya Sabha. Asserting that the government did not keep anyone in the dark, Swaraj said the government had to wait for right information before making a statement. Her sister-in-law Reena, who has been crying since the news broke on television, says their world is shattered. "The government cheated the people (families) by giving them false hope for four years", he said.

Sushma Swaraj told the upper house of parliament the workers had been murdered by Daesh.

A group of 40 Indian workers, hailing mostly from Punjab, were kidnapped by the ISIS when the terrorist organization attacked Iraq's second largest city Mosul in 2014. The statement was made by Swaraj in Rajya Sabha amid raucous protests.

To determine whether the mound was indeed a mass grave, deep penetration radars were used.

He said the bodies will be sent back to India "in a couple of weeks or so".

Stating that the Martyrs Foundation does not confirm any person's death till 100 per cent identification has been done through DNA samples, she said that it was on Monday that reports came of 100 per cent identification of 38 of the bodies.
