Iraqi Minister arrives on India visit, talks to focus on missing Indians

She has maintained that they have received inputs from sources over the months of the 39 men being alive. "We are doing our best", Al-Jafari said. Apart from Sushma Swaraj, al-Jaafari met Vice President Hamid Ansari and Minister of Petroleum and Natural Gas Dharmendra Pradhan.

Al-Jaafari who is on a five-day visit to India, starting Monday, however, said that his government is trying their best to trace the 39 Indians who were earlier believed to be trapped in Mosul's Badush jail.

Swaraj is expected to make a statement on the matter in Parliament on Tuesday.

Eight people found dead in semi truck trailer
In 2003, 19 immigrants were killed after their smugglers abandoned them in the back of a trailer in Victoria, Texas . US Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) officials defended the use of tough methods to fight human smuggling.

"Initially we were told that Indians were last seen in Badush Jail but with reports coming that Jail structures are demolished, we don't know what to expect", Gurpinder lamented.

The fate of these Indians is set to come up during bilateral talks between External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj and her Iraqi counterpart Ibrahim al-Jaafari today. But a media report from Badush said the jail is abandoned now, he said.

Speaking at the Lok Sabha monsoon session, the MP said that most of the missing citizens are from Punjab and "the truth must be let out".

When Iraqi forces "liberated" Mosul this month, New Delhi rushed minister of state for external affairs V.K. Singh to Irbil and Baghdad. He said the Peshmerga were still clearing the ISIS held areas. The question is whether the 39 Indian missing persons are under the rubble. "We heard the Iraqi minister say that he does not know whether the 39 missing Indians were dead or alive", said Chandigarh resident Davinder, whose elder brother Gobinder is among the missing.

The Iraqi foreign minister described the information as "inaccurate" and said the IS is known to circulate information that is "untrue".

Meanwhile, family members of the missing Indians expressed pain over the Iraqi minister's failure to bring any information on them.
