Indians kidnapped by ISIS in 2014 declared dead

"Such a barbaric organisation. there were so many mass graves around and so many piles of bodies". "He left for Mosul in 2013-14". We met the Foreign Minister several times, every time she assured us that the government is doing its best to find the Indians abducted by ISIS (Daesh*). The process was finally completed with the help of respective district magistrates in October- November 2017.

India's Minister of External Affairs Sushma Swaraj addresses the United Nations General Assembly in the Manhattan borough of NY, U.S., September 26, 2016. "I was hoping that he will return alive and we will go to Delhi to receive him", says 27-year-old Kamaljit's mother Santosh Kumari. We had no means to question the district authorities further. She was not able to digest the news as she also believed the government, which refused to confirm that her husband was not alive.

Forty Indians - from Punjab, Himachal Pradesh, Bihar and West Bengal - went missing in June 2014 after Mosul fell to the Islamic State.

Daesh is the Arabic acronym for the Islamic State group. "My thoughts and prayers are with all of you today", Mr. Gandhi said on Twitter.

"Out of the 40, who were kidnapped, one person managed to escape, while others were confirmed dead after DNA samples of their relatives matched from the bodies exhumed from a mound, " EAM Swaraj said in Rajya Sabha. "In December 2014, an intelligence input suggested that the missing Indians may not have survived", sources said. She had also said that the government would continue the efforts to trace the missing Indians.

The bodies are "citizens of the friendly Indian state".

She said Swaraj only cared about her "reputation" and not the feeling of family members of the victims by keeping them in the dark.

After questions were raised over the government's confirmation, the minister held a press conference to say that the government can not declare any person dead without concrete proof and it was her duty to inform Parliament first about their death rather than tell their families first. Their identities were confirmed by DNA tests. The bodies were then sent to Baghdad for DNA testing. The cells remain alive for 10 to 15 years and in some cases, for a longer period. We are waiting for information from there (Iraq).

Dismissing complaints that the government had given the families false hope, she said, "I had told the House continuously for three years that until I get proof of their death, I will not close any file".
