Not 100% sure 39 missing Indians are alive: Iraq

Iraq’s Foreign Minister Ibrahim al-Jaafari on Monday said he was not sure whether the 39 Indians missing in the city of Mosul, liberated from the Islamic State (IS) terrorist organisation, were alive.

“I am not 100 per cent sure if the 39 Indians missing in Mosul are alive,” al-Jaafari told the media. “We are trying our best (to trace them).”

Most of the 39 Indians who went missing in 2014 are from Punjab.

His comments came after Minister of State for External Affairs V.K. Singh visited Iraq after Iraqi forces aided by an international coalition liberated Mosul from the IS on July 9.
