While 31 of those abducted were from Punjab, the rest were from Himachal Pradesh, Bihar and West Bengal. "Since the Parliament is in session, it was my duty to first inform the House". "The government kept us in the dark all these years". He said that the other 39 men were executed by the militants after they were captured. Congress communications in-charge Randeep Surjewala, "The government had on seven occasions told the families of the 39 Indians kidnapped by Daesh that they were alive." he told reporters.

Sushma Swaraj said General (Retd.) VK Singh, Minister of State External Affairs, will travel to Iraq to bring back the dead bodies.

"Not a single day was spared in our efforts to trace them after they went missing in June 2014", Sushma Swaraj said. Most of the victims were from low-income families in Punjab.

The Indian government urged relatives not to lose hope.

Heart-rending scenes were visible outside the homes of the deceased in Punjab as wailing family members tried to give vent to their pain having heard on TV, External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj's statement that all 39 Indians in ISIS captivity were dead.

In 2014, India had issued a travel advisory telling its citizens to not travel to Iraq, and those already there to leave. He used to talk to me every Friday.

"It is very much possible that the claim made by them now is also wrong", he said. What demand do I make from them? "The details were revealed to me by Masih's employer and the caterer who helped him".

A hapless and dejected Puroshottam Tiwari too seethed at the government's actions. "I had been saying that all 39 Indians had been killed (by Daesh)". They were told by a local about a mound around 25 km from Mosul, where it seemed like many bodies had been buried. Manjinder Singh, who was into farming, was pushed into Iraq by fraudulent travel agents, she claimed. "I am trying to know from the government how all this happened", she said. But once the news regarding his missing came, even his wife left us along with the child. "Their dignity was supposed to be protected, but the forces of evil wanted to defame the principles of Islam", said Najiha, the head of Iraq's Martyrs Establishment, a government body dealing with people killed in the fight against the Daesh terror group. "Will we indulge in politics over death as well", she said. "We have no idea how we can get hold of his body", he said.
