I am waiting to speak with her. One person whose DNA has matched 70 percent with the samples is from Bihar. She did not take any names.

Clarifying herself, Sushma said she had personally talked to the foreign ministers of the respective countries and had also asked for evidence for the death of the 39 Indians in Iraq's Mosul.

In an indirect dig at the Congress, she said there were governments that would interpret missing persons as "believed to be killed".

Stating that that she had gone to the House with a heavy heart to give the sad and serious news after four years of efforts, she said: "Where was the need for Congress to kick up this ruckus?" She told parliament on Tuesday that Masih had posed as a Muslim from Bangladesh to escape Iraq.

"I had very clearly said that I will declare them dead if I get conclusive proof. Whether they kept the Indians there or killed them, I have no idea". "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.

He will go to Iraq to bring the bodies back to India.

In 2014, 40 Indian construction workers went missing outside the northern Iraqi city of Mosul.

He was the lone survivor among 40 Indians abducted by Islamic State militants from Mosul, Iraq in June 2014.

They were taken hostage by Islamic State militants when they took control of the second largest city in Iraq in 2014.


She said, "Today Congress indulged in a very low level of politics, probably Congress president thought how did no uproar happened in Rajya Sabha and made a decision to ask (Jyotiraditya) Scindia ji to lead protests in Lok Sabha".

"In Rajya Sabha, everyone listened to me patiently".

Sushma accused Rahul Gandhi of asking Jyotiraditya Scindia to lead protests in Lok Sabha. The Congress indulged in very cheap level of politics and crossed the limit.

Masih's counsel Munish Kumar said, "We have argued that since Harjit was working in Mosul as a labourer, there was no ground to book him in cases for alleged offences cheating, human trafficking etc".

The Indian government had never received any ransom demand or any other direct communication from the kidnappers. "Their dignity was supposed to be protected, but the forces of evil wanted to defame the principles of Islam", said al-Shimari, whose government body documents those killed by IS. The bodies were then sent to Baghdad for DNA testing.

Investigators used DNA samples from relatives to confirm the identities of 38 bodies, Rajpurohit said.

"The Martyr Foundation does not declare anyone as confirmed death if the DNA matching is not 98%", she said.

Pall of gloom descended among eight families of Amritsar dwelling in different villages when they heard the news about assassination of their kin who were kidnapped and killed in Iraq.
