Iraq's foreign minister Ibrahim al-Jaafari on Monday said that his government has no substantial evidence whether the 39 Indians that the Islamic State had kidnapped in 2014 are alive or dead, ANI reported. "Then on July 16, during a meeting with Union minister Sushma Swaraj, we were told that they might have been lodged in a jail in Badush in northwest Mosul", said Sarwan. "We have been going through this torture for the past over three years", said Manjit Kaur, whose husband Dalwinder is among the missing men.

He also said that the Iraqi government had financial incentives for people who could help locate those 39 Indians.
While briefing the mediapersons here, the Iraqi minister said, "Can't confirm anything about the missing Indians", adding that his government will continue to its level best to trace them.

Al-Jaafari's visit from July 24 to 28 to India comes two weeks after Iraqi Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi announced liberation of Mosul.
